Jaxson {2}

I’ve been working with this cutie for a while now! We decided to meet outside of the Franklin Park Conservatory to capture his two year milestone. Grandma joined us this time, and man, does he love his Grandma! She was so helpful with getting smiles and laughs. Jaxson’s personality always shines in the photos! He’s got the best expressions!

I love fall photo sessions! It’s my favorite season and my favorite holiday. I even brought along my orange ottoman to go along with the fall color scheme. The waterfalls here are gorgeous, but tricky when dealing with young children. The kiddos could walk right into that water! Also, who wants to look at the camera when there’s all that awesome water and rocks to throw? I was so happy though with how the photos came out!

When you’re looking through the photos, pay attention to the one of him walking up the bridge. Can you see he’s carrying his stuffed monkey? So cute!

The {M} Family

The colors in these photos are fabulous! Sometimes, I will ask what families plan to wear if I’m trying to match props. For this particular session, I wasn’t planning to use any props other than the beautiful scenery of the park. We had choose to meet at Inniswoods in Westerville. If you’ve never visited that park you’re missing out! Especially, in the fall! The leaves had just begun to change and fall when we met for this session, and they matched perfectly with their clothing.

This was my second time working with this family. These two kiddos have super fun personalities and are definitely not shy in front of the camera. They actually make my job somewhat easier, because they have their own ideas for the photos!

What a beautiful family! I hope I can work with them for years to come!

Throwback Thursday {Furr Kids}

Our friends have the cutest poodles!  Quigley is the black one, he’s the big brother.  Rigby is the one that looks like a teddy bear.  He joined the family last year.  We met for photos shortly after they brought each pup home, and again for Christmas card photos.  I always say working with dogs is very similar to children!  You have to be fast, fun, and bribe them!

I posted some side-by-sides of when they were both pups.  I believe Quigley was 10 weeks old and Rigby was 8 weeks old.  They both look extra dapper in the bowtie!  Both of these sessions took place right in their backyard.  Next, you’ll see the first set of Christmas photos, before Rigby was born.  I love the colors and textures in those photos.  We chose a local red barn as the backdrop for that session.  Finally, you get to meet the entire happy family with both furr kids!  I LOVE the last two family shots!  Those were taken at Homestead Park in Hilliard.

Throwback Thursday {The Monn’s}

I have to leave super early tomorrow to catch a flight, but I didn’t want to miss posting my Throwback Thursday feature!  I’m super excited about sharing this family!  My husband and the father, Bob, have been friends since childhood.  He was also a groomsman in our wedding.  He brought Amanda to a wine tasting at our condo about four years ago, and now fast forward to present day, and they are happily married with two beautiful kiddos!  It’s been such a joy watching Bob transform into a dad, and a great one at that!

I’m pleased to introduce you to their youngest kiddo, Miss Lili.  She by far has been the easiest newborn I’ve ever photographed!  It was easy to soothe her, and she was a heavy sleeper, so I was able to pose her with cute props and snap away!  Not to mention how beautiful she is!  My friend, Nina, made those super fancy hats with the feathers for me.  She also made the zebra cocoon and diaper cover.  Who doesn’t love a Buckeye baby?!?  I made sure to add the pom poms, so this little beauty wouldn’t be mistaken as a boy in that cute helmet hat.  These are some of my favorite newborn photos I’ve ever taken!

 

This past fall we finally met to do photos of the whole family at Inniswoods.  I believe Miss Lili was around seven months, so she was able to sit unsupported so well.  Now, you get to meet their other cutie, Jackson!  He had just celebrated his third birthday.  I love the one of both kids up in the air!  Such a fun family!  I’m blessed to not only have them as clients, but more importantly, as friends.

Throwback Thursday {The Adams Family}

Last year I really fell behind on my blogging!  So, I’ve decided to use “throwback Thursday” to catch up and share some of the awesome sessions I had last year!  Meet the Adams Family…

This is my sis-in-laws fam.  When I first started this photography journey, they were the first family Shannon and I photographed together.  We went to Kingwood Center in Mansfield, and had a very eventful session due to the weather.  It rained on and off the entire time!  Since we don’t live in Mansfield, we decided to face the weather anyway.  Thankfully, Kingwood had buildings for us to take shelter in, and we were able to get some great photos while inside too.  Below, you can see photos from that session, which I believe was almost five years ago.  While, I’ve grown so much since then, I still love these photos!

This past fall, we met again for the first time since those photos were taken.  I can’t believe it took us so long to update their family photos!  Once again, the weather wasn’t cooperating, but we were able to complete the entire session without getting rained on this time.  This beautiful family would photograph well anywhere, but we were particularly lucky to have such amazing fall colors.  They also nailed it with their outfits!  I always encourage my clients to utilize layers, because it adds character to the photos.

I am in love with how the photos turned out!  My favorite thing about the camera is that it doesn’t lie.  If I’m working with clients that truly aren’t connected to each other, you can tell.  No matter how great the pose and/or location is, you just can’t fake love.  I see so much love in each of these photos!  My nephew was genuinely engaged during the entire session and having a great time!  My niece wasn’t even feeling well that day, but you would never know it!  I even made my sis-in-law tear up during a father-daughter pose.

This past Christmas, one of the photos from this session was enlarged and given to my mother-in-law as a gift.  The waterworks happened again!  She had everyone in the room crying!  So much emotion from looking at one photo.  That’s why I love this job!
