Upper Arlington Newborn Photography

Lifestyle + stylized newborn session | Upper Arlington, Ohio

Although we got together just after Christmas (hence their adorable cream colored stockings!) I am finally getting around to sharing this cute little family’s session. Baby Ellie started out wide awake and after some coaxing, was finally fast asleep. We got some pictures of her alone for her stylized portion, then moved onto the cuddly family shots in their lifestyle portion. It is such a joy & honor to document a new family interacting with each other, often in their first home… snuggling their first baby. Their hearts from this day on, will continue to grow and expand with love and life will never be the same. <3

Dublin Maternity + Newborn Photography

Sunset maternity + lifestyle & stylized newborn session | Dublin, Ohio

Words cannot express how happy I am for this adorable growing family! Leah and I have been friends for as long as I can remember and we were lucky enough to photograph her & Jason’s wedding one gorgeous fall evening a few years ago. I held my breath and hoped & prayed a little one would come along soon…. and I got my wish! Well, their wish, but mine too! 🙂

Leah & Jason’s maternity session was this past fall and I saved some favorites to blog when their little girl arrived. More recently, I got to spend the morning with them… while snuggling baby Quinn! They are going to be amazing parents and I can’t wait to watch them continue to grow in love!

In-home Stylized + Lifestyle Newborn Session | Dublin, Ohio

Although I’ve only met this momma a few times, I felt like family in their cozy home, cuddling their newest family member on a brisk winter morning. The nursery was grey & green with a cactus theme and adorable personal touches. The entire family, GoldenDoodle including, was game for a lifestyle portion prior to baby Leo’s sleepy, stylized session. Leo slept and slept until the last few minutes, making for a perfect way to end his session as we caught a peek of his little eyes. I hope they are in love with their gallery as much as they are in love with their new little guy! Here are some favorites…

Dublin holiday “sitter” session

Christmas/Holiday Sitter Session | Dublin, Ohio

Being Christmas Eve Eve, this will likely be our last post for a few days, so we wanted to close out the holiday season with one of our cutest little clients! Baby Will couldn’t be any more adorable and his sitter session was full of smiles, some ‘classic’ shots and of course, some holiday cheer. We know his family will enjoy celebrating Will’s first Christmas this year and sharing all his smiles with loved ones. Merry Christmas to the Kaspers and to all our amazing clients!!

We were lucky enough to do two sessions with this little guy and his fun family! First they came to our (temporary) in-home space to get some sleepy, cozy baby shots. Along with some cuddles & a few cat naps, we captured this perfectly handsome baby boy in all his cuteness. Then a couple weeks later, we met up again, this time in their home, and got to see the gorgeous nursery, some festive Christmas decorations and the rest of the sibling crew! We are always thankful that growing families share these early moments with us. Check out some of our favorites of “baby W!”

In-home lifestyle session | Dublin, Ohio

When you work with “clients” long enough… they start to feel more like friends. This gorgeous family has been coming to us for a few years now and they get cuter & sweeter every time I see them! We laughed, played outside, read books, chatted it up and had a fun morning just hanging out at their home. I know they value these fleeting moments… sisters playing patty-cake and baby’s squeals of joy as she swings for the first time… and now they have images to cherish the memories forever. Here are some favorites!

Powell Newborn Photography

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!

Dublin First Birthday Cake Smash Photography

First Birthday & Cake Smash Photography Session | Dublin, Ohio

It was a joy to work with this family for their daughter’s first birthday cake smash session. Momma is an Ag teacher and offered to supply all the fresh florals – they were absolutely beautiful! She came in with crates and crates, then even gifted me a bunch of gorgeous blooms to remember them after they were gone! Her blush pink semi-naked smash cake came from one of our local favorites, Our CupCakery. Even though little miss wasn’t very interested in her cake, we still got some super cute shots to capture this important milestone… the first birthday of their first born. 🙂 Here are a few favorites!

Hilliard Family Photography

Family Lifestyle Sunset Session | Hilliard, Ohio

We’ve photographed this fun-loving family for years – since their oldest was just an itty bitty. I always enjoy seeing them and capturing their playful personalities! We got some traditional portraits, but my favorites will always be the candids. The moment when momma’s little girl cuddles into her a little closer. When dad carries the boys around on his back. When the oldest needs a moment to cheer up before the “click.” We had a blast giggling, playing, jumping, “squishing” each other in cuddles and soaking in the golden sunlight. Here are a few favorites from our sunset session…

Worthington Newborn Photography

Lifestyle Newborn Session | Worthington, Ohio

Every time I do a lifestyle newborn session, I fall more in love. There is nothing quite as precious as witnessing new parents in their own home with their tiny miracle. Documenting those early moments as they cuddle and snuggle the morning away. Taking a few minutes for a feeding or diaper change, incorporating the family pet, seeing what favorite books – and sometimes artwork from previous sessions with us – they’ve chosen to put on display. I’m truly honored that families allow me to share these intimate memories with them.

Erin & Jonathan are two of the sweetest parents I’ve met. We first met at their maternity session and I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of baby B. They welcomed me, offered me coffee and let me cuddle the latest “addition” to the family before we started our session. We chatted about sleepless nights, labor & delivery, nursing and all things baby. Their home was the perfect backdrop and the gender-neutral nursery – baby boy was a surprise – was absolutely perfect. I’m thankful their friends referred them and hope to work with them for years to come. Here are a few favorites from my morning with baby Barrett and his parents…
