In-home Lifestyle Newborn Session | Powell, Ohio
It was a pleasure to work with this adorable family! I’ve been running with momma for several years and had the blessing of photographing their first born, Jack, since he was in her tummy. Now known as “big brother Jack,” he is an active toddler who doesn’t love to sit still, so we didn’t get many perfectly posed sibling shots… but that isn’t really my style anyhow. 🙂 Jack gave me some smiles, a few yoga poses and a couple quicker-than-my-camera toddler-speed kisses on his new baby brother, Collin Michael.
Baby Collin’s nursery was put together with love by his overly handy parents, including the handmade nursery sign they will soon sell in their home-based business, The Local Grain Company. He didn’t want to miss out on any action and was awake for most of his session until the very end, when momma konked him out with some milk & snuggles. Here are a few favorites from our in-home newborn session!
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!
