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

Trout Club Wedding | Jonathon and Taylor

Trout Club Wedding

My first time shooting this Trout Club Wedding that I want to go back!  If you’re planning a wedding in the near future, you must take a look at this blog and consider the Trout Club.  It’s so pretty there and the staff was so nice to work with them.  Taylor did an incredible job planning this gorgeous wedding to her groom Jonathon.  I just adore them both.  What a great party with family and friends.  It was a very humid June day, but the wide open shade in so many places kept us all cool.  Vendors that helped make this fairytale wedding come together are located at the end of the blog.  To view all of their wedding images, click here.

Dawes Arboretum Maternity Pictures | James and Jessica

Dawes Arboretum Maternity Pictures

Such a precious session with James and Jessica at Dawes Arboretum.  We traveled around to some of my new favorite locations at the park.  Miss Emma is already loved by her proud parents.  I always enjoy my in person studio meetings because I get to see my customers reactions to their pictures.  I love watching them admire their pictures with smiles and giggles.

Newark Ohio Engagement Portraits | Tom and Bonnie

Newark Ohio Engagement Portraits

I had such a great time with Bonnie and Tom with their Newark Ohio Engagement Portraits.  We were fortunate enough to meet on a gorgeous evening in Newark Ohio.  The kind of evening you wanted to stay outside all night.  It was discussed that they wanted urban portraits, but then pictures at the OSU branch.  With an outfit for each location, I was ready to deliver some great location ideas.  Because the evening was so pretty, the black wrought iron bridge proved to be a popular location for walkers and bikers.  With that in mind, I am very familiar with this area as I went to school at the branch and rode my bike on the exact same trail when I lived around the corner.  The retaining wall has always been a favorite of mine and it provided wide open shade so I could keep my couple cool and enjoy the picture session.  I try my best to send my couples home feeling like they had fun.  Bonnie and Tom thanked me for helping guide them with their poses.  I can’t wait to work with them again on their wedding day!

Granville Ohio Lifestyle Photographer | Lewis Family

Granville Ohio Lifestyle Photographer

What an blessing to have my best friend ask me to take family pictures of Mr. Hudson in Granville, Ohio.  I missed him so much after the session wrapped up.  I could have held him all afternoon long.  He is in that adorable stage of studying his surroundings that can make all of us chuckle with his chubby little cheeks and sweet little eyes.  When I’m taking pictures in public locations, I always love it when somebody is nice enough to stop and compliment how cute the baby is, which makes my parents so happy.  Hudson will be my forever favorite as I had the honor of meeting him shortly after he was born.  The little teddy bear represents Hudson’s Big Brother, Graham.  What an incredible little gift from Molly Bears. They picked the design of the ribbon and the button on the bear.  They chose a nautical theme because that was the nursery theme for Graham that passed away after a still birth at 36 weeks.  It weighs 5lbs, 14 oz.  Hudson is a rainbow baby, which is a baby after suffering a loss.  What an incredible gift! Congratulations Scot and Renae!

Vineyard Porter Central Wedding | Drew and Jessame

Vineyard Porter Central Wedding

My first time at Vineyard Porter Central in Sunbury, Ohio and I hope to return very soon.  What a great location for those that want a barn wedding.  Even though the wedding had to be moved inside due to the weather, it was actually a more intimate wedding for this great couple that couldn’t wait to be married.  It didn’t matter at the end of the day.  They felt the love with their family behind them during the service.  Congratulations to Drew and Jessame!  Thank you for inviting me to be part of your wedding day.  To view more images from their wedding, click here.
