Tuyen “Kim”  | Senior Session |Dublin, Ohio

Kim is sweet, quiet, creative and ambitious. I’ve gotten to know her well over the last three years and will miss her a lot next fall as she heads off to The Ohio State University. One of her favorite quotes is “Try a little harder to be a little better” and to no surprise, as she’s one of the hardest working students I’ve met! We had a lot of fun at her senior session and the weather, sunlight and flowers cooperated just perfectly. Here are a few favorites from her sun-kissed cherry-blossom session…

Sam  | Senior Session |Dublin, Ohio

As we move away from weddings (at least for now), we are focusing more on families, little ones and one of our favorites, senior sessions. We usually have more seniors in the summer and fall, but we’ve gotten a lot of requests this spring and are enjoying every minute of it!

We worked with Sam’s brother a few years back and were happy when his mom contacted us to work with their family again. We started in Historic Dublin, then headed to the new BridgePark area for some sunset shots. Sam was a good sport and gave me a good mix of smiles, the tough guy smirk and even a few laughs! 🙂 Here are a few of our favorites…

Columbus Senior Photography

Makiya  | Senior Session |Columbus, Ohio

This long-awaited sunset was worth the wait! Due to weather and hectic teenage life/schedules… our fall session turned to winter and winter session eventually turned to spring. By the time we finally met for Makiya’s senior photo shoot, we got to share the Columbus skyline with lots of prom-bound seniors from nearby high schools doing their portraits!

I really, truly had an absolute blast with Makiya and her parents. We laughed the session away, with mom helping primp and get natural laughs and dad chatting it up with me during outfit changes. Time flew by and the sun set beautifully over the skyline of downtown Columbus and the Scioto Mile. Enjoy a peek of her session!

Dublin Senior Photography

Hannah | Dublin Jerome Senior | Homestead Park, Hilliard, Ohio

Hannah and I did our first session together last summer, but one session just wasn’t enough. 🙂 Often our seniors like to split their sessions into two (or in this case three!), getting the opportunity to capture multiple sunsets, seasons, outfits and locations. What better way to document one of the most important years in your life?

Hannah’s summer sessions {check them out HERE! } were done in and around Dublin and for her fall session we headed to Homestead Park in Hilliard. With fall being our busiest time of year, we don’t blog nearly as much as we’d like. So as Hannah’s mom reached out to us recently with some questions about prints for her grad party, we dug up her gorgeous fall session to share here – its one worth blogging about! The sun was perfect and we had just enough time for a few quick outfit changes. Here are some of our favorites…

Hilliard Newborn Photography

Carroll Family | In-home newborn lifestyle session  |  Hilliard, Ohio

Working with clients-turned-friends & getting my baby fix are just some of the many perks of this photography gig! I am blessed to visit client homes, chat with mommas about all-things-baby, cuddle their newborn addition and feel like I’m genuinely part of their family, even if just for a bit. The Carroll crew welcomed me with open arms and Mom, Dad & big sister Ellie all took turns loving on baby Luke during their session. They will definitely stay busy now with a two-year-old toddler and a freshly picked newbie, but I know there is enough love to go around! 🙂 Meet the littlest Carroll…

Marcus | Senior Photography Session  |  Columbus, Ohio

I’ve known Marcus for a few years now and he will soon be graduating from Olentangy Orange High School. We had a blast at his senior session, laughing the evening away, finding new locations and dodging spiders (have you seen how many spiders there are at the Scioto Mile bridge?!) It’s always a good time working with teenagers you know and Marcus made the session easy and fun.  Here is a peek at some of our favorites!

Dublin lifestyle newborn photography

In-home lifestyle newborn session  |  Dublin, Ohio

I have so much fun & good conversation with this beautiful (seriously, look at them!) family. They had a perfect fall sunset for their maternity session & I was so excited to go to their home and capture some memories with their newest addition.  Big sis was super excited and the best little helper. Here are a few favorites from our afternoon…

Powell maternity + newborn photography

In-home lifestyle maternity + newborn session  |  Powell, Ohio

This lovely family was referred to us by one of our favorite client families… lucky us! Seriously, everything about them is a dream! They are so sweet & kind, have a beautiful well-lit home for lifestyle sessions… and now they have the perfect addition to stare at all day long. 🙂 I first got to meet them at their maternity mini session and had so much fun. They felt like family from the beginning and I was so excited waiting for momma’s belly to become a newbie! I then got to come back and meet their little one, baby Lucas, after he was only a few days old. They are some of the most loving parents I’ve ever worked with. Genuinely overflowing with love. I hope they are getting lots of cuddles and I certainly hope I get to see this little guy again!  Here are some favorites from both of our sessions.

Dublin First Birthday Cake Smash Photography

First Birthday Cake Smash Session | LeenaBee Studio, Dublin, Ohio

I’ve been working with baby Sawyer and his family since he was in momma’s belly!  I loved having him in studio to celebrate him turning one. He didn’t love his cake, but he still gave us lots of smiles and I’m going to miss seeing him every three months. Happy first birthday little wild one!

Dublin Sunset Family Photography

Sunset Family Session | Plain City/Dublin, Ohio

This session only lasted about 10 minutes. Not pictured are the in-between melt downs our youngest had every few minutes and my oldest asking when we’d be done so he could change out of his jeans. We rolled with it, did a lot of tickling and got them to cooperate just long enough to take advantage of the beautiful golden light. When you have kids between the ages of 0-5, you never know how a session will go!

These pictures literally make me tear up. For so many reasons. I’m thankful to have a sister who loves us enough to take our photos several times per year. She’s so good at getting the kids to laugh & she captures the little moments that I want to document forever. I’m blessed to have children who fill my heart with joy.  I often wish I could freeze time and keep them little, but I know there are exciting memories to be made as they grow up. And even after several years of marriage, figuring out how to parent two little ones, juggling multiple jobs & schedules, surviving on very little sleep… the stress of life has only made me love my husband more. He sometimes makes me crazy, but he always makes me laugh. 🙂

As we move into the holiday season, we want all of our clients – many of whom have become friends – to know how thankful we are to have this business and be able to capture moments like this for you.  Laughing as a family.  And maybe sometimes crying. We hope you have a wonderful holiday, a Merry Christmas and in case we don’t see you, a Happy New Year!
