Hilliard Family Photography

Family Lifestyle Sunset Session | Hilliard, Ohio

We’ve photographed this fun-loving family for years – since their oldest was just an itty bitty. I always enjoy seeing them and capturing their playful personalities! We got some traditional portraits, but my favorites will always be the candids. The moment when momma’s little girl cuddles into her a little closer. When dad carries the boys around on his back. When the oldest needs a moment to cheer up before the “click.” We had a blast giggling, playing, jumping, “squishing” each other in cuddles and soaking in the golden sunlight. Here are a few favorites from our sunset session…

Lifestyle Newborn Session | Worthington, Ohio

Every time I do a lifestyle newborn session, I fall more in love. There is nothing quite as precious as witnessing new parents in their own home with their tiny miracle. Documenting those early moments as they cuddle and snuggle the morning away. Taking a few minutes for a feeding or diaper change, incorporating the family pet, seeing what favorite books – and sometimes artwork from previous sessions with us – they’ve chosen to put on display. I’m truly honored that families allow me to share these intimate memories with them.

Erin & Jonathan are two of the sweetest parents I’ve met. We first met at their maternity session and I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of baby B. They welcomed me, offered me coffee and let me cuddle the latest “addition” to the family before we started our session. We chatted about sleepless nights, labor & delivery, nursing and all things baby. Their home was the perfect backdrop and the gender-neutral nursery – baby boy was a surprise – was absolutely perfect. I’m thankful their friends referred them and hope to work with them for years to come. Here are a few favorites from my morning with baby Barrett and his parents…

Baby Hagan | Lifestyle newborn session | Grandview, Ohio

Oh my heart. Seriously. Baby Hagan was a dream – so sleepy and cuddly, such perfect skin and tiny features, so much gorgeous hair. And his parents? Unicorn parents. Perfectly calm, perfectly put together & perfectly… well, beautiful.

Momma and I have been friends since before either of us had babies and it was so surreal to see her with her own little one. I had a fabulous morning hanging out with them, catching up and snuggling baby Hagan. Oh… and we took some pictures! Check out some of my favorites and stay tuned for more, I have a feeling I’ll be sneaking visits to this little guy quite often!

Daley Family | In-home stylized+lifestyle newborn session  

Another photographer friend referred this family to me and what a blessing they were! Mom, Dad and all three kids were so sweet & friendly and their home was a beautiful backdrop to capture their lifestyle moments. They also added on some stylized poses and the new Daley addition slept a bit and woke a bit… she didn’t want to miss out on the family fun! Here are some favorites from my morning with this lovely crew:

Family Photography Session | Dublin, Ohio

This momma and I have grown close over the last few years through running, fitness and more and I love photographing their family! We met at one of my favorite parks and had a fun morning filled with smiles & laughter. Their session included extended family so the gallery was pretty big and hard to narrow down, but here are some favorites!

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…

In-home lifestyle newborn session  |  Dublin, Ohio

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

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!

Maternity + Newborn lifestyle photography

Here is a combination post of these adorable parents before baby and an in-home lifestyle session after their little one arrived! 


In-home Maternity Lifestyle Session | Worthington, Ohio

This adorably sweet couple invited me into their home for both a maternity and newborn session. The weather cooperated for the maternity portion, so we were able to go outside for a bit which is always our preference… but difficult as Ohio winter weather ensues! Then we came inside to capture some moments of just the “four” of them – little pup & kitty  included – before the long nights (and lots of cuddles) begin when the newbie arrives. In-home sessions are the perfect way to document all the details of your life at that moment in time and they are one of my favorite sessions!

In-home Lifestyle Newborn Session | Worthington, Ohio

After their little one came home, it was time for me to go back and visit! Although I’m not a huge fan of winter, I do love capturing the real, raw moments of new families in their own home… so staying inside isn’t always a bad thing. 🙂 Meet the newest family member!

The Robinson Family has been visiting us since their oldest was their tiniest. 🙂 We love working with them, laughing with them & just hanging out with them! The golden sun was perfect and this was another successful fall mini session at one of our favorite locations. Enjoy a peek!
