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

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!

Zanesville Ohio Wedding Pictures | Chase and Hannah

Zanesville Ohio Wedding Pictures

One of my flower girls when I married my husband is now married!!!!!  I can’t believe it!  I just adore these Zanesville Ohio Wedding Pictures of Chase and Hannah. This one of a kind location is in the backyard of Hannah’s grandparents house.  This particular weekend, we had nonstop rain that started Friday night and we woke up to scary rain more than once on Saturday.  However, I have lots of luck with the weather and it stopped long enough for us to race to the pond area before another storm hit.  I may have drove the entire bridal party to the pond area in a truck with the air conditioned cranked up high to keep hair and makeup looking great for the ladies.  Congratulations to Chase, Hannah, and Haven Robinson!!  We wish you many years of happiness.

Crawford Barn Longaberger Wedding | Jacob and Danielle

Crawford Barn Longaberger Wedding

I’m so thankful that my path crossed with Jacob and Danielle that landed me as their wedding photographer.  I couldn’t have asked for a more sweet couple to spend 2 straight days with than Jake and Danielle.  They asked that I photograph their catholic ceremony the day before for their Crawford Barn Longaberger Wedding.  I had an absolute blast at their engagement session that I honestly wondered how on earth we would top it.  Anything we wanted to do or try out they were all for it.  Not a single time did they show frustration, boredom, or irritated with the amount of time spent on their pictures.  Many times they said, “We trust you and we’re game for anything.”  The reason they had to trust us would be their wedding day was the hottest one to date and they had a pretty large bridal party that we wanted to keep everybody cool.  We found lots of wide open shade and stayed close to the air conditioned barn before we left for the prairie field wedding that Danielle’s Grandma wanted to take place.  It was communicated to me they would have a lot of dancing after the ceremony and they were not kidding.  Wedding photographers love a great dance party.  We giggle and laugh as we fire off some pretty funny images to deliver to our couple.  To view their wedding images, click here.  Thank you again Danielle and Jacob!  Your kindness is definitely noticed by all of your vendors.  I know that because I’m friends with most of them and we all agree….you guys are so sweet.

Senior Photography Newark Ohio | Colton

Senior Photography Newark Ohio

I can’t find the words to describe how much fun I had with Colton during his HS Senior picture session.  We started downtown Newark, Ohio for some great urban pictures.  I pride myself with finding new locations for my models and this particular day I had 2 new locations in mind for Colton that we all agreed we loved both of them.  We finished up at Showtime Strength & Performance.  He has spent a lot of time training at the gym and earning awards along the way so I was more than happy to take pictures there for him.  If you want to view more of his images, click here.  I am so thankful for the referral from a fellow Utica High School Senior from last year that brought Colton and his family to my studio.  Colton is one of the many ambassadors working for my studio this year and earns cash for all of his referrals.  If you know him and haven’t collected a $25 gift card yet, contact him today for details.
