Estella Louise

There is a new little lady in my life, and I want you all to meet her! This little darling is my newest little niece, Estella Louise, and I am in love! I think I need to work on my persuasive skills, because I need to convince all of my sisters (both by blood and by marriage) to keep having babies so I can have more and more of these little nuggets to love on!

Little Miss Estella and her parents just moved this past weekend to a new home and while I am sure we will get some sweet photos in their new place, it made me so happy to document them in this one before the big move. There is something really sweet about seeing the home you’ve lived in so long as a couple become littered with baby gear and gifts and supplies. I know they were only there for a handful of weeks with her, but I hope these photos help them remember the time they spent in that home. I wish Justin and I had more photographs of all of the homes we’ve had…all 5 of them! I know, we moved a lot there at the beginning…but each one had so many great memories and thinking back at each one always makes me smile.

Enough of the sentiments, go take a peek at my newest little gal!

Someone wanted so badly to be in some pictures…and since she doesn’t typically have those feelings, I couldn’t say no. Now we have some really sweet photos of Hallie and Estella and I know they will both treasure one day.

Brecken & family: his 1st year…and a tad more!

Oh, how I have been waiting to share some of these shoots with you. It’s taking a lot to not separate them into 6 different posts, but I really want to show how awesome a “baby plan” is.  Just a couple years ago, I introduced a “baby plan” to my shoot offerings. Not sure if it would take off, I had 5 families sign up almost immediately. I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun I have had with these families. Some have picked to do their plan over 2 years, and some have kept them to 1. I’m still working with most of them, but I have recently finished up a few…and gosh, it’s so fun to look back. Honestly, it makes me feel a tad guilty for my kids…I mean, isn’t the saying…”a cobbler’s kids don’t have shoes…” or something like that?

Anyway, I HAVE to introduce you to these people! A simple blog post would never convey how much I adore them. Jamie and I have clicked and have become such great friends. Not like, “I love photographing you and your family, it’s really fun” sort of friends, but full texting conversations and her sending me the most thoughtful sweet notes and gifts. I mean, this girl, she’s something else.

They are actually the first family to sign up for the baby plan and she added a maternity session to it, so I just had to show you them all at once to watch cute little Brecken grow.  Hold on to your horses, it’s a big post, but it’s so worth it :)

Sweet Miss Eisley Ray

It’s gonna be random for a while…but random is better than nothing, right?! I have been so excited to show you this session. It’s hands down one of my favorite sessions I’ve done. So many reasons: adorable family, the colors, the stye of their space…it all just came together, and I love it so much.

To be totally honest, for years newborn shoots made me more nervous than any other type of shoot I do. For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out why people said it was their favorite type of shoot. I would almost be sick with nervousness on my way each time. In the end, they always came out okay, but I always struggled with them. 2 years ago, I figured out why. I was trying so hard to do what everyone else was doing for newborn sessions (more setups, poses and whatnot). Once I finally figured out that I could approach newborn sessions the same way I do my other shoots, I instantly started loving them. Also important: my newborn session style is NOT for everyone. I understand that and I want others to know that. If you want that other look, let me know and I can refer to you some AMAZING photographers that can do just that…but know, it’s not how I approach them.

As you can see, parents are *very* involved in my shoots…so be prepared if you are looking to book with me. Also, I don’t shoot indoors often, but I always do on newborn shoots…I love to document your new family in the space you live…it’s part of why I love these shoots so much. Here’s a little look into my style of newborn shoots. Again, so many of these sessions to share, but that’s what not blogging for so long does ;) I love this little family…they are adorable, have great style…and to top it off…Johnny (the dad, obviously) has one of my top 2 favorite names of anyone I’ve personally met….Johnny Ropple. I mean, seriously…doesn’t that sound awesome?! I can’t put my finger on it…whether he could be a smooth 1950s heartthrob or an awesome comic book character or what…but something. Just say it out loud…Johnny Ropple.

*side note: I never told him that, so I have probably totally freaked him out now. Sorry Johnny, I just really like your name.

I am in love with Eisley’s nursery. I wanted to totally re-do ours after seeing it (I was due with Hayes about 2 weeks or so from when we did this shoot).chillicothe ohio newborn photography chillicothe ohio newborn photography chillicothe ohio newborn photography chillicothe ohio newborn photography chillicothe ohio newborn photography chillicothe ohio newborn photography chillicothe ohio newborn photography chillicothe ohio newborn photography

Baby Eamon & Family | Columbus Ohio Newborn Photography

I’ve got just 6 short weeks (or less) to go before our little man joins us this summer…time is FLYING by this second time around! With the combination of mental to-do lists (mental because we haven’t started a single thing) & a check up this morning, plus the little guy is kicking me like crazy…I’ve got baby on the brain (not that I don’t 24/7 these days)…so I thought I should pop on and share one of my favorite newborn shoots I’ve ever done. No one will be shocked that this session happened all the way back in September and I am just now showing it off…but, that’s life :)

I take a slightly different approach to the “normal” newborn photography. For me, it’s more about capturing this big (amazing) change in your life & documenting that new love of your family and less about poses on blankets & in baskets and such. I mean, of course we have a little of that…but I want to show the relationships. Is one way better than the other? Absolutely not! It’s just how I go about it and how I would want photos of my new little growing family. I’ve also been embracing “at home” photos so much more lately. If you’ve had a shoot with me before, you know it takes a bit of convincing to make these happen…however, for 6 months and under…I’m loving the dynamics that we’ve been getting.

Well, that’s enough rambling for now, here’s a handful of my favorite from my session with Baby Eamon :)

Sweet Baby Harper

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a sweet newborn baby on here…and since I’ve got baby on the brain, I thought that would be the perfect type of shoot to share today! We have one more week before we know if Hallie will have a brother or sister and the anticipation is driving me nuts! Can’t wait to know :)

I got to photograph sweet Harper last December. She’s on our “baby plan” and I’ll be seeing her next month for her 3 month shoot…can’t wait to see how she has grown :)
