Dublin Senior Photography

Dublin senior photography session | Dublin Coffman HS, class of 2021  

I’m a photographer, but I’m also a high school teacher and my heart aches for all the seniors this year. So many school and senior activities have been canceled or changed… yet they keep on keepin’ on with a smile on their faces! I’m so proud of the class of 2021 and thankful that some milestones, such as outdoor senior pictures, can still make their year special and memorable. I recently had the chance to spend the evening with Alison who attends my alma mater, Dublin Coffman High School! We, along with her parents, toured the park catching glimpses of the golden sun as it set behind us in the fields. It was a perfect night and I hope we captured a little piece of Alison that will be frozen in these timeless images forever!

Dublin Family Sunset Photography

Family Fall Sunset session | Dublin, Ohio 

We don’t typically blog much in the fall due to school starting, a steep increase in sessions and lots of fun fall family activities of our own. HOWEVER, when we have a session we loooove with a dear friend (and her perfect little family), we BLOG! We laughed, we chased grasshoppers, we had so much fun! Check out a few favorites from our sunset session with the Carders!

Olentangy Senior Photography

Senior photography session | Olentangy Orange HS, class of 2021 

Winter, spring and early summer we shoot mostly families, babies and the occasional corporate or small business session… but once August rolls around, we start working more regularly with soon-to-be graduates. Zayla is the kind of dreamy client that makes me fall in love with senior photography over and again! A gorgeous girl on a beautiful late summer day is bound to give you some amazing images. We had SO much fun exploring the park, chatting it up and having an impromptu dance session on the boat dock! Check out some favorites from our evening sunset senior session…

I’d be remiss to not mention Zayla’s big sis, Milana, another one of my favorite senior clients –> click HERE to take a walk down memory lane!

Dublin first birthday photography

First birthday photography session | Dublin, Ohio 

This may be one of our last documented “summer” sessions of the year, as fall begins to roll in and the colors go from light, bright and airy to deeper, richer tones. This cute little party-of-four has been coming to us as their family has grown over the years and we were excited to celebrate the youngest’s first birthday… and hang on to summer just a little bit longer!

Hilliard Senior Photography

Senior photography session | Hilliard, Ohio 

It is bound to be a legendary year, and many 2021 grads are making the best of the chaos while still taking part in “traditional” events like their senior photo session! Michael and I met up at Homestead Metro Park, exploring both the nature and the architecture of the park. Although I’m sure he was there more for his mom… he did a great job of acting like he was having a good time and channeling his “model” charm! Here’s hoping this was the start of an amazing senior year for you, Michael!

Dublin Family + Maternity Photography

 

Family + Maternity photography session | Dublin, Ohio 

The Carrolls have been working with me since they were a family of two several years ago and soon, they’ll be a family of five! Although I love the golden sunset, sometimes littles do best in the AM so we met early and spent a Saturday morning laughing, collecting rocks and exploring the park. It was a fun morning and I’m thankful they let me tag along, soaking in these last few months before their newest bundle arrives!

Olentangy Senior Photography

Senior photography session | Olentangy Orange HS, class of 2021 

This next school year will bring unique adventures for all of us – especially our seniors – as they navigate the ever-changing school landscape, while making the most of their last year of high school. As summer draws to an end, our upcoming class of 2021 graduates will begin to schedule many important milestones… and we can’t wait to kick off senior portrait season!

I’ve been lucky enough to know Leah for a few years now and was SO happy when we scheduled her senior pictures. Not only is she GORGEOUS (I mean, just look at her!), she is also kind, genuine and incredibly entertaining… she makes me laugh and always sees the brighter side of life. Our first attempt didn’t last long as the rain rolled in and our session was shortened, but our second night gave us perfect weather and beautiful light. Although it was nearly impossible to narrow down her gallery and choose my favorites, I finally managed to do so… check out some favorites from Leah’s summer senior session!

One of Leah’s besties joined us too, so of course I had to snap a few of these cuties together…

Looking forward to this school year and fingers crossed, it goes as smooth and “normal” as possible!

Dublin first birthday + cake smash photography

First birthday session | Dublin, Ohio

I just can’t get enough of these adorably happy littles and their teeny tiny cakes! Baby Mia stole my heart in her peach lace and smiled away her session, showing off her pearly whites (how cute are baby teeth!). We had flawless morning weather and she finished her cake – well carried it around, more or less – just before the storm rolled in. It was a perfect start to my day and I had so much fun with her and her family, grandparents and all! Here are some favorites… Happy first birthday little Mia!!

Dublin first birthday + cake smash photography

First birthday session | Dublin, Ohio

This time last year we had a newborn baby boom… and now all our littles are coming back to us for their first year sessions! Although some choose to not do a cake, smash cake sessions are one of our favorites. 🙂 We used to frequently do them inside with a “studio” look… but with current Covid restrictions, we are playing it safe, keeping the babes outdoors and LOVING it!

I’ve worked with baby Olivia over the last year and her family couldn’t be sweeter. We’ve done four sessions now and I look forward to hanging out with them each time and seeing how Olivia has grown. She gets cuter by the minute and it was so fun to watch her toddle around, giggle, eat cake and just be adorable! This was also my very first session out of the spring quarantine so it was extra fun to see, interact and laugh with other humans! Enough chatter, check out the adorable Olivia Rose….

Dublin Senior Photography

Senior photography session | Dublin Jerome HS, class of 2020 

I’ve known my friend Erin since way back in the day… “the good ol’ days” we often call them. We were fast friends, soccer teammates and created all kinds of fun ~ or rather mischief ~ together.

Flash forward to 2020 and Erin has a daughter old enough to head off to college! You can’t imagine how crazy this seems to me. Her daughter, Riley, is a recent graduate of Dublin Jerome and headed to play soccer this year as a Louisville Cardinal. She is a beautiful girl full of ambition and I hope her aspirations of being a collegiate athlete and starting her “real freshman year” play out as they should!

Although this session was captured a few months back, I’m finally making time to blog and commemorate the memories. It was my pleasure to spend the evening with not only Erin and Riley, but two of Riley’s friends, Alyssa and Lily. Between the three seniors, I saw the most variety I’ve had at a shoot with a total of 9 (or maybe 10?) outfit changes and loads of golden sunshine on the Mullady’s gorgeous farm. Here are some favorites from their session… and likely our last senior 2020 post as we begin working with the upcoming class of 2021!!

Thanks for a fun evening girls! May you never lose your sense of laughter and keep dreaming for the stars… even if your freshman year looks different then planned!
