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…
I’m not sure what I loved most about this amazing session because so many things made my heart happy! The fact that the momma and I have been close friends for almost 30 years & playing with her littles gives me joy. The gorgeous farm setting full of lots of candid opportunities for the kids to play and spark genuine smiles. Or the golden sun that surprised us at the end of a cloudy day. I’m always honored when friends trust me with their family photos because hanging out at the session feels like just that… hanging out! Here are some favorites from our perfectly golden, perfectly joyful sunset session.
This session only lasted about 10 minutes. Not pictured are the in-between melt downs our youngest had every few minutes and my oldest asking when we’d be done so he could change out of his jeans. We rolled with it, did a lot of tickling and got them to cooperate just long enough to take advantage of the beautiful golden light. When you have kids between the ages of 0-5, you never know how a session will go!
These pictures literally make me tear up. For so many reasons. I’m thankful to have a sister who loves us enough to take our photos several times per year. She’s so good at getting the kids to laugh & she captures the little moments that I want to document forever. I’m blessed to have children who fill my heart with joy. I often wish I could freeze time and keep them little, but I know there are exciting memories to be made as they grow up. And even after several years of marriage, figuring out how to parent two little ones, juggling multiple jobs & schedules, surviving on very little sleep… the stress of life has only made me love my husband more. He sometimes makes me crazy, but he always makes me laugh. 🙂
As we move into the holiday season, we want all of our clients – many of whom have become friends – to know how thankful we are to have this business and be able to capture moments like this for you. Laughing as a family. And maybe sometimes crying. We hope you have a wonderful holiday, a Merry Christmas and in case we don’t see you, a Happy New Year!
The Robinson Family has been visiting us since their oldest was their tiniest. 🙂 We love working with them, laughing with them & just hanging out with them! The golden sun was perfect and this was another successful fall mini session at one of our favorite locations. Enjoy a peek!
This lovely family came to us from Texas, first doing little man’s one year cake smash session back in April. We were happy to see them again for a fall family lifestyle session! They were all over the idea of just playing and laughing. Smiles, looking for frogs & ducks, walks in the woods, throwing rocks, playing with sticks, running through mud & leaves… all the things that little boys are made of. 🙂 The sunset was perfectly golden and we had a wonderful session together!
Another fun family, another golden hour session. We’ve considered ONLY shooting at sunset… however, we know its sometimes hard to keep the little ones up that late. But it is oh-so-worth it! We had a blast hiking, twirling, playing freeze tag & laughing as the sun set on this gorgeous fall evening. Wish this weather would last forever!
Hersland Family | Sunset Family Session | Dublin, Ohio
We have been working with “miss Natalie” and her family since LBP started. We love seeing them each year, smiling and laughing our session away. Little Alex is a bit harder to chase around, but we do our best to capture his natural energy and big personality! Love how this session turned out and can’t wait to see them for years to come!
I was fortunate enough to work with Hannah last week to document the beginning of her senior year! As a photographer, I started off shooting mostly babies and weddings, but I have grown to love working on senior sessions over the last year and a half. Teenagers know their style. They have their own ideas to contribute. And bedtime isn’t until after the sun sets, unlike many of our one year old clients!
Hannah’s first session was on a cloudy, overcast day. We had fun walking and talking about her dreams and plans beyond high school. We got lots of beautiful, evenly-lit shots and a wide variety of looks between her two outfits. Although we could have stopped there, I was craving the warmth of a backlit sunset session, so we met for a quick 20 minutes a few nights later, right as the sun was going down. Both sessions turned out perfect and I’m so excited for her to share her gallery with her family and friends.
NIKKI + MICHAEL // WATERS EDGE, HILLIARD, OHIO Nikki and Michael could not have asked for a more perfect wedding day. The weather was amazing (hello sunset!), their wedding party was amazing, and all of the little details came together … Continue reading →
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.
