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…
Here is a combination post of this lovely family, before and after their tiniest new edition!
Sunset Lifestyle Family + Maternity Session | Dublin, Ohio
Party of three is about to become party of four! Well five, if you count their loyal family dog, Stella! Absolutely love working with our families over the years and watching them grow. Can’t wait to meet the little one in momma’s belly in just a few months!
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…
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!
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!
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!
This lovely family came to us from Texas, first doing little man’s one year cake smash session back in April. We were happy to see them again for a fall family lifestyle session! They were all over the idea of just playing and laughing. Smiles, looking for frogs & ducks, walks in the woods, throwing rocks, playing with sticks, running through mud & leaves… all the things that little boys are made of. 🙂 The sunset was perfectly golden and we had a wonderful session together!
Another fun family, another golden hour session. We’ve considered ONLY shooting at sunset… however, we know its sometimes hard to keep the little ones up that late. But it is oh-so-worth it! We had a blast hiking, twirling, playing freeze tag & laughing as the sun set on this gorgeous fall evening. Wish this weather would last forever!
This family welcomed a new little boy to their home & hearts a few weeks ago and I was lucky enough to come meet them for a lifestyle session. Sometimes you get really lucky and your lifestyle session clients are not only fun & sweet, but they have the most beautiful home! Everything was natural and white, providing the most gorgeous well-lit backdrop for a photography session. The nursery was perfectly planned down to every last detail and their baby boy fit right in. With tons of hair and even more personality, this little guy really worked the camera! We took a few breaks for some feedings, some snuggles and of course, lots of laughs. Meet one of our youngest clients…
NIKKI + MICHAEL // WATERS EDGE, HILLIARD, OHIO Nikki and Michael could not have asked for a more perfect wedding day. The weather was amazing (hello sunset!), their wedding party was amazing, and all of the little details came together … Continue reading →
Flecher Family // Red Trabue Nature Preserve // Dublin, Ohio
I got to meet baby Ava when she was just a few days old, and now she is smiling, sitting and a becoming a beautiful little person! Milestone sessions are so much fun, getting to watch the littles grow and see their personalities blossom throughout the year. Mom & dad brought Ava to one of our favorite spots and although it was midday, we still found lots of shade and got lots of smiles! Here are some favorites from Ava’s mini session…
