Last time I photographed this family Evie was the same age as Josie.:D01_SFam2015_bobbi02_SFam2015_bobbiThere’s a photo of me at the end taking the image on the left.:)
03_SFam2015_bobbi04_SFam2015_bobbiFaye, I’m obsessed with your freckles. It’s the most impressive freckle collection I’ve ever seen!  On the left, my favorite.:!:05_SFam2015_bobbiWhile we were walking around, Evie thought of this cool pose and asked me to take it. 06_SFam2015_bobbiNot to be outdone, Josie immediately found this beautiful coral door and followed suit with THIS fierce pose. Nailed it.;)07_SFam2015_bobbi10_SFam2015_bobbiLove you guys!09_SFam2015_bobbiJosie was not clearly not impressed.;)08_SFam2015_bobbi



Tipp City, Ohio

faye+andy  ::  married 12 years  •  10.11.03

Faye  ::  hometown- Auburn, Ind  •  Photographer  ::  passionate, helpful, respectful, creative, talented, smart, beautiful, loving, caring, empathetic, health conscious

Andy  ::  hometown- Tipp City, Ohio  •  Engineer  ::  kind, intelligent, genuine, rational, calming

Evie  ::  5 years old   ::  smart, creative, acrobatic, snuggly, determined

Josie  ::  2.5 years old  ::  happy, expressive, foodie, curious, generous

your perfect Saturday  ::  The girls climb in bed with us around 730 and we all fall back to sleep till 9. Pancakes bacon and eggs breakfast we make together. We are at Norris lake all day on the water. Swimming and tubing with the girls and teaching them how to ski or whatever other water adventure they want to try. Multiple dance parties on the boat. Finishing up with a campfire and s’mores or snuggling with the girls in front of a movie and popcorn.

How they met, as told by Faye  ::  We were both in College, Andy at University of Dayton and me at OIP&T.  Andy played lead guitar in a rock band and I was classmates with his friend the drummer.  Luckily I went to one of their shows and was hooked on him!


I posted this image to my Instagram right after I took it.  You see, I feel comfortable sharing the reality here on this blog post because Faye is a photographer herself, so she gets it. Here was the caption I wrote on Instagram:

What can I say?! Kids LOVE me! ;) Being perfect is SOOO exhausting…. ammi right Internet?! Let’s be real; everything that comes outta this magical camera o’ mine is made of puuuuure sunshine, unicorns and rainbows! Thank you Evie and Josie for making life SO easy on me! PS. In all seriousness, I adore these two kids! Just sharing a bit of reality with those who need it today. Sometimes I look at incredible blog posts of my photography heroes and then I want to sell my cameras. Culled down social media versions of ourselves are just a fraction of real life.

You see, forced fun is rarely actually fun. The second I’d turn my camera away from them, they were aaaallllll smiles.:DThanks to Faye and Andy for remaining patient throughout the whole session.:D

11_SFam2015_bobbiYou can’t say it wasn’t for lack of effort!:D12_SFam2015_bobbi


Much love friends!

What was the most memorable moment of your day?

Sarah:  There were so many amazing memories from that first night. I absolutely loved the venue and the weather was perfect. I think my entrance that day with all of my friends and family dancing like crazy people in front was one of the most memorable moments.

Rehan: Walking out with all my friends and family.

Any advice for future bride/grooms?

Sarah:  This applies especially to South Asian brides, but wear wedges if you are a big dancer, hydrate, eat a big dinner, and attempt to get eight hours of sleep. It’s just the first day of a marathon and you need to be fresh in the morning!

Rehan: Relax, enjoy the day with your friends and family.

Funniest memory from your wedding day?

Sarah:  Watching all of the choreographed dances! I especially cracked up at my brother and cousin in the bridal party dance.

Rehan:  My groomsmen trying to hoist me on their shoulders, I clearly had not lost enough weight!

If you could do it all over, would you change anything?

Sarah:  The night was perfect! But, like most brides, I could have used more water, more sleep, and more food.

Rehan: I would’ve remembered to eat!

Where did you go on your honeymoon?

All over Turkey, it was magical!




More coming soon!



PS. Special thanks to Stacy Able and Caroline Rogers for their help that day!:)

What was the most memorable moment of your day?

Lindsay:  The First Look with Scott . That moment was incredibly special to me and I’ve never seen him look more handsome. My nerves were at a high and seeing him put me at complete ease.

Scott: Our first dance as husband and wife. We’d been practicing so much, it was nice to finally see it all come together on the big day.

If you could do it all over, would you change anything?

Absolutely nothing. The day was perfect being surrounded by our closest family and friends. We’d do the whole day over again in a heartbeat.

What was the most memorable moment of your day?

Ashley:  Walking down the aisle with my father and seeing all our family and friends. I could hardly look at Brenton because I was ready to burst into tears. I understand why couple’s do a first look.

Brent: Seeing my bride for the first time.

Any advice for future bride/grooms?

Ashley:  We couldn’t decorate our venue until an hour before the ceremony. If you have this, make sure you have an army of helpers and your instructions to family & friends are very clear. Give them pictures of how you want everything to look.

Brent: Plan early, and plan extensively. It’s never too soon to get started.

Funniest memory from your wedding day?

Ashley:  Watching my husband dance with his mother for their song was great. The song was hilarious, and they had lots of choreography.

If you could do it all over, would you change anything?

Ashley:  My biggest regret was forgetting to give my husband his gift before the wedding. It was hidden in a drawer at home, and in all the chaos I forgot it. He had to wait until after the night was over.

Brent:  Absolutely nothing.

Where did you go on your honeymoon?

After the wedding we took a few days off & stayed local. Our one-year anniversary will be our real honeymoon. We think a tropical island getaway sounds perfect.


I have stared at this photo for an embarrassingly long time. Now I am admittedly quite short (5’2″)… and Ashley and Brenton are tall (my best guess is 5’8″ and 6’1″ respectively).  In this image, I’m only standing approximately 7 feet behind them… and I’m on the same level as they are (as in, they’re not on a stage)… HOWWWW is it that I look soooo shooooort?! This photo just doesn’t make sense! 19_ABW15_bobbiThank you two for EVERYTHING!!!! Seriously, thank you! 20_ABW15_bobbi


Much love friends,
