Madelyn Jane // My First Year Milestone // LBP Studio + Indian Run Falls, Dublin
Six months is one of my favorite ages, as both a momma and a photographer. Six month babies are generally so happy, every little thing makes them light up with smiles. They usually aren’t on the move yet, so they sit still for your camera. And since they aren’t moving, they often are more sedentary which results in adorable, pudgy baby rolls! A onesie I recently found says “Pretty eyes, chubby thighs” which describes MJ perfectly.
Madelyn’s half birthday was August 16 and most of these pictures are from mid August. Late summer into early fall is crazy for us as we have weddings, fall portraits and school starting so we often get behind when it comes to our own family photography (editing, posting, etc). As we always say, “better late than never!” Meet our adorable Maddie…
One weekend, TWO Stellas! We had the pleasure of working with two adorable little girls this weekend…. both named Stella and both turning one! Check out some favorites from their sessions below.
First birthday ‘Sweet & Simple’ Cake Smash | LBP home studio Dublin, Ohio
Little Stella has literally grown up before our eyes! We did her newborn session last year on a cold, wintery Valentine’s Day and enjoyed seeing her every few months at various milestone sessions. She continues to get more and more adorable and although she didn’t love her cake [she wanted daddy pretty much the entire session!], we still captured some great moments. Stella’s momma chose the Sweet & Simple Cake Smash, a shorter session that allows just enough time for a few ‘I’m ONE!’ shots, a quick outfit change and then time for baby to dive into that cute, tiny cake!

First birthday Ultimate First Birthday Cake Smash | Upper Arlington, Ohio
This family found us through mutual friends and chose the Ultimate Cake Smash session. The session includes extra time for family shots, multiple outfits for the birthday girl and personal touch upgrades including a custom cake and decor. They wanted to do it in their beautiful home, so we brought our portable studio to them. Stella loved her cake and dug right in…

McGraw Family | Newborn mini session | Dublin, Ohio
The McGraw family came to our in-home studio in Dublin for a Newborn mini session. They chose our My First Year mini plan, so they will get 3 mini sessions over the next year. Sweet Charlotte was the perfect little model, sleeping and smiling the whole time! We can’t wait to watch her grow older!
