Craft Time

Category: Misc. | May 24th, 2011

One of my favorite things as a kid was crafts! After a long day at school I would come home to my little square table and start creating. My mom found projects wherever she could and pretty quickly I would focus on getting down to getting messy! Elmer’s glue, sparkles, construction paper – those were the tools. Often I miss that hands on part when I work on my computer these days. There is just something about peeling glue off your fingers and the feeling of thick construction paper.

When my good friend Stacey from Bridal Divas Ink told me about wanting to do a craft time with the kids at the Ronald McDonald House I was super excited! We shopped at Michaels’ picking out all kinds of goodies to make Valentines with the kids. In March we had a fun St. Patrick’s Day theme complete with rainbows and leprechauns. This month we did fun animal masks, visors and puppets! And Stacey read Where the Wild Things Are as the kids made their animal sounds when she said the word Max! The kids and the parents always really enjoy the fun project! We are so luck to have our friends and wedding vendor friends volunteer with us.  (You know us wedding people are creative hehe!) I can’t wait for next month’s craft project!

Do you know how sometimes when the clouds are gray all day, the sun comes peaking out just before sunset? That is exactly how this session went. It made for a perfect mild temperature. It was great to catch up with Brandy and Ryan and to hear more about their plans coming along. Their wedding is in July and I can’t wait! For their engagement session we went to Ault Park (who doesn’t love their beautiful gardens?) and Mt. Adams.  It was fun to do both locations and to have the city overlook. Brandy and Ryan thanks for being great sports!

Congratulations to Amy and John on their One Year Anniversary. The wedding day couldn’t have had better weather so we were able to get a ton of beautiful outdoor photos at Sycamore Creek Country Club in Dayton! We wish you two all the very best! To see more of their photos check out their blog post.


Monday we finally had a perfect evening for Mary Beth and Ryan’s engagement session. After two attempts (both big storms) we were able to enjoy a beautiful spring day! It was so much fun to photograph this couple. They are naturals. And they even rocked out my funny bathroom photo idea. Mary Beth and Ryan – thanks for being so much fun. I hope you enjoy this sneak peek! I can’t wait for your June wedding!
