Dublin baby photography

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…

Babies grow up way too quickly and we are thankful [as both moms & photographers] that we take the time to capture our own little ones along the way.  Here is a preview of Madelyn’s five month milestone pictures from mid July.  Crazy that she will be six months next week!

Dublin newborn photography

Shepfer Family | Newborn Photography | Dublin, Ohio | LeenaBee Studio

The Shepfer family welcomed baby Grayson last week and brought him to our home studio space on his 7th day of life.  We photographed their daughter Briella’s six month & one year milestones and it was fun to see her take on her new role as “big sis!”  This momma helped me {Teresa} out so much when I was on maternity leave with baby #2 so I was happy to finally be able to do something nice for her. 🙂  Meet their newest addition…

Dublin First Birthday [Cake Smash] Photography

This little guy has a special place in our hearts.  We’ve been photographing him for a year now and have enjoyed both watching him grow, as well as getting to know his parents.  His birth story was so touching, we were honored to work with him in those first few months.  Take a glimpse at this beautiful family (in reverse chronological order!)

Baby C was a little over 8 weeks by the time he came to see us, so it was a challenge to keep him asleep… he wanted to check out all the action!

Grimm Family // Lifestyle Family & Milestone Session // Powell, Ohio

This family doesn’t really need an introduction… they have done our My First Year milestone package with both of their littles, so you’ve seen them a lot on our blog!  This session was for Lennon’s six month milestone ~ she is undeniably adorable with her little rolls, huge smile and wardrobe fit for a tiny model. 🙂

Dublin First Birthday Cake Smash Photography

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…

Li Family | First birthday cake smash session | LBP home studio Dublin, Ohio

This super cute family has been coming to us for a few years now.  Big brother Elijah was one of our first cake smash sessions a while back and we were honored to capture Mia’s first year in our milestone package.  Her first birthday session included a short family portion (brrr!) and then cake smash in our studio space.  She had a few sad moments, but mostly was a happy little girl in pink who had fun playing with her cake.  Big bro even joined in at the end!

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!

Dublin Family & First Birthday Cake Smash Session

Althoff Family | First Birthday ‘Simple & Sweet’ Cake Smash Session | Dublin, Ohio

Baby Alex’s first birthday session was ‘simply’ perfect!  Her momma chose a custom package of a short family session at the Karrer Barn in Dublin, then the studio ‘sweet & simple’ cake smash session.  We got to capture many sides of Alex’s adorable personality and loved watching her play with her cake in the daintiest way!
