The Waltz family is near and dear to my heart because once upon a time I babysat for these kids (now teenagers!) 😊I loved getting to see Trey, Jacob, Mattie and Jonah in this season of life. I admire and respect Shelly so much and hope to become even half the woman and mom that she is. It’s clear her kids love her a lot…although they’ve gotten prettyyy good at giving her a hard time 😉

David and I both have puppy fever so we loved getting to photograph and play with their mini goldendoodle, Nola. We took these on a brisk Sunday night at Cincinnati Nature Center and the light was just right 💫 Family photos that are natural, candid and honest are my favorite and these were all of the above. Enjoy ✨
