Harvest of Memories bio picture
  • WELCOME!

    I am so happy to have you here if this is our first time visiting! For those that don't know me, I started my photography business, Harvest of Memories, in 2009 and never, ever imagined I would be where I am right now, which would be running my business, full-time from my home! I am not your average photographer. I am unique and creative photographer. I am a wife and mother of two precious girls and hit the ground running when I started my business. I have taken photographs for people all over Ohio and gained so many clients just by word of mouth. HOM is not a "pose and shoot" business. I produce inventive, original, timeless photographs to cherish important memories forever. I am currently serving Central Ohio including Columbus, Gahanna, New Albany, Granville, Westerville, and Newark, Ohio.

    "Life is pretty simple to me.....pretend that every single person you meet has a sign around their neck that says 'Make me feel important.'" -Darlene Hall

Orchard House Wedding | Anthony and Tiffany

Orchard House Wedding

I honestly have no idea where to even begin with my words for this blog entry.  Anthony and Tiffany planned the most romantic wedding at the Orchard House in Granville, Ohio.  I have shot a great deal of weddings that’s for sure, but in the woods by candlelight would be one of my first and I hope to goodness not my last.  I truly enjoyed working with their family.  They were excited to get married, they even broke a few traditions by seeing each other beforehand, and at the end of the day they are so happy they did because of the images delivered to them.  The amount of compliments I received from so many fans or even a trip to the softball field, I have had many stop me in my footsteps to talk about “that wedding in the woods.”  As soon as I hear that phrase, I can’t help but smile.  I can’t thank Tiffany and Anthony enough for having us along to document your gorgeous wedding day.  If you wish to see this wedding from start to finish, click here.

Buckeye Lake Winery Engagement Pictures | Adam and Alexa

Buckeye Lake Winery Engagement Pictures

We had to wait out the rain for these Buckeye Lake Winery Engagement pictures, but it was well worth it all.  I always love the look after a storm.  Not to mention, cooled everything down a little bit that always helps when we have a little one.  I highly recommend Buckeye Lake Winery if you need a new place to eat and drink. They have different food trucks visiting the location on Tuesday’s evenings and you might catch some great music while enjoying the view.  Alexa has been part of my team for 3 years now and is always a pleasure to have tag along with me to different portrait sessions.  I’m honored they have asked me to photograph their family milestones.  I look forward to hearing more about their final wedding plans

Newark Ohio Country Engagement Pictures

Newark Ohio Country Engagement Pictures

Where do I even begin?  I love this couple!!!!  No denying love between them, which spreads to those around them.  I first met Courtney while she worked at the Longaberger Golf Club and I was photographing weddings.  Those that know Courtney, she smiles all the time.  When Courtney contacted me after her engagement to ask me to be her wedding photographer, I was so happy!!!!  I’m so thankful our original location for their engagement pictures didn’t work out and we landed on the property that belonged to her grandparents.  This particular location was purchased by Dave Longaberger years ago and popular for Homecoming pictures.  My mind is blown that even if it’s a vacant property now a days, it still has a fair amount of locations that produced some dreamy images for this couple.  To view more images from their session, click here.

Barn at Backwoods Wedding | Colton and Anna

Barn at Backwoods Wedding

No matter the time in between my visits at the Barn at Backwoods for a wedding, when I do have the chance to work here, I always love it.  Especially when my family is there saying I do!  We had just as much fun on their wedding day as we did during their engagement session.  This ceremony was filled with lots of prayers and commitment from the parents right along with Colton and Anna that I know they will remember for a lifetime.  I love the wide open field in the front where the ceremony took place, but I also love the field to the left of the barn that always provides the gorgeous blue skies and green grass.  I always return home with some great images from both locations.  Colton and Anna smiled all day and couldn’t wait to get married.  To think these cutie pies can label themselves high school sweethearts is absolutely perfect for them.  Thank you again for asking me to be your photographer.

Newark Ohio Senior Pictures | Austin

Newark Ohio Senior Pictures

It’s my favorite time of year!!!  I’m busy meeting up with HS Seniors to help set the tone for their Senior year.  When I ask my models if they’re excited to be a Senior the answer is always yes.  You can see it on their face.  They understand what this year will bring with it.  They hear it from so many that it will go by fast and it will be the best time of their life.  I’m so happy to work with the Collins family again as I had the honor of taking pictures for their oldest son, Brandon, and now Austin.  I’m honored to have repeat parents and I have that a lot this season.  Stay tuned to hear great things from Austin and his Senior year of school.  He’s going to be a great leader on and off the field.  Good luck #54!
