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!

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!

Dublin Sunset Maternity Session

Maternity Session | Red Trabue Nature Preserve | Dublin, Ohio

We always get excited when we have new clients that came from out of town, as we love Columbus and sharing our knowledge of this city!  And we feel honored that in the pool of talented Cbus photographers, they chose us to document these special moments in their lives.  🙂 The weather was perfect for our sunset maternity session and we chatted about Ohio, Texas and “life as we know it” before and after baby.  These two are ready to be a family of three and we look forward to meeting their soon-to-be new addition.

Dublin maternity/family photography

Fazzio Family | Maternity & Family Session | Indian Run Falls, Dublin 

We’ve been photographing this family since they were a party of three… and now they are about to be a party of five!  Momma requested more of a “family” session than a maternity session, but I still managed to quietly sneak in some belly pics. 🙂  I had a fun evening chasing around these gorgeous littles and am super excited to meet their newest addition this summer!

Dublin Maternity Photography // Feeling Thankful…

We were so happy to still have warm weather & fall colors for this couple’s November maternity session.  They were cute as can be & we are excited to work with them over the next year (they booked the Ultimate My First Year package!)  And obviously we can’t wait to meet their little nugget as well. 🙂

Shortly after sending their gallery preview, while drafting this blog post, we got an email from naming us one of the 2016 Best Maternity Photographers in Columbus!  We are extremely appreciative of this recognition and honored to be part of a list that has so many fabulous local creatives.  Especially with Thanksgiving right around the corner, we find ourselves being forever grateful that God has graced us with the talent, efforts and passion to provide memories for our clients, family and friends.  Photography does not feel like work for us.  We really, truly thank each person that has supported us, believed in us and/or allowed us to capture their moments.  In case this is our last post before Thursday, we hope you all have a wonderful holiday and take time to be thankful for all that matters in your life.

Now, a little peek at this momma & dad to be!

This momma-to-be and her hubby live in Powell, but are slightly new to Columbus after spending a few years in New York.  Lauren joined our running group and we became fast friends with much in common (running & motherhood to name a couple!)  I was honored when she asked us to schedule her for a newborn session and can’t wait to meet her little boy next month.  We met last week for a sunset maternity mini and I’m so glad we were able to capture this time in her life!

This session was actually taken late summer, but we were holding off blogging it until momma had the baby & plenty of time to share with her family first!  A couple months later, the parents and new addition, baby Knox, are home & doing well.  We are blessed to work with parents-to-be and love watching them share intimate moments before they become a family…
