Dublin lifestyle photography

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…

Columbus/Hilliard Senior Photography

Jillian | Senior session | Columbus + Hilliard, Ohio

We had a lot of fun laughing, assembling our pop-up-tent and taking LOTS of images during Jillian’s session this fall. Somehow when I got home to work on editing her gallery, I had taken over 600 pictures – WAY more than I typically do, even for an upgraded session. Guess I just got a little click happy! We started in downtown Columbus along the Scioto Mile, then raced the sun to get to Homestead Park in Hilliard before the sunset (somehow she still made time to do three outfits in those last few golden minutes!) Here are a few favorites from Jillian’s senior session…

Dublin sunset maternity photography

Carder family | Maternity session | Dublin/Plain City, Ohio

The only thing better than a glowing sunset maternity session is when it is a dear friend and her adorable family! This momma and I have become close over the years through running, photography (I was blessed to work with her on her first baby’s first year!), and all things startup life (she also runs a small business). We met last week at Glacier Ridge Metro Park to capture baby #2 on the way and do one last photo shoot before baby Jack becomes big brother Jack. Hopefully they will cherish these memories and moments forever. Check out some favorites from this golden hour…

Dublin Newborn Photography

Stylized Newborn Session | Dublin, Ohio

As much as I love ALL newbies, I was excited to have a little girl to cuddle after a streak of boys! Baby K came to me just nine days new and although she didn’t want to sleep at first, we finally got her to close those pretty little eyes. This little babe has two older brothers that are going to both fill her life with joy, as well as toughen her up! Here are a few favorites from our session…

Sweet & Simple First Birthday (+ big sister) Session | Dublin, Ohio

This family is the absolute SWEETEST and I love seeing them every year. Last year we did Rilyn’s first birthday so it seemed appropriate to include her in her baby sister Myrah’s first birthday session this year! The girls definitely wanted to cuddle with momma, so I had to sneak some quick shots, but they turned out perfectly anyhow. 🙂 Here are the youngest Tu girls, ages one and two!

Baby Hagan | Lifestyle newborn session | Grandview, Ohio

Oh my heart. Seriously. Baby Hagan was a dream – so sleepy and cuddly, such perfect skin and tiny features, so much gorgeous hair. And his parents? Unicorn parents. Perfectly calm, perfectly put together & perfectly… well, beautiful.

Momma and I have been friends since before either of us had babies and it was so surreal to see her with her own little one. I had a fabulous morning hanging out with them, catching up and snuggling baby Hagan. Oh… and we took some pictures! Check out some of my favorites and stay tuned for more, I have a feeling I’ll be sneaking visits to this little guy quite often!
