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 Ms. Petra & her family | Chillicothe Ohio Newborn Photography

Guess what? I do photograph newborn girls too :) I have had so many little boys lately, it was so fun to get a dose of pink in one of my shoots (my goodness, my little girl sure has changed me!). Little Petra’s grandmother contacted me to set up a photoshoot for her very first Granddaughter…isn’t that the sweetest thing ever?! What a great gift for Petra and her parents. Loved that! Not only did she set it up, but we made them a big part of the shoot as well. This family kept me smiling the entire shoot. Here’s a little look at the fun we had:

Beckham | Chillicothe Ohio Newborn Photography

Sweet little Beckham. Oh, where do I start? As you can tell, this was one of the babies in my “two weeks of newborns” (I didn’t plan that, just happened), and by the time I met Beckham I was already telling Justin that Hallie needs a sibling…stat. Just kidding…well, sort of.

Little Beckham will always hold a soft spot in my heart. He was the first baby to actually fall asleep on a newborn shoot for me in years…yes, years. It actually happened!! (to prove it wasn’t me, the next newborn to be blogged also fell asleep for me…I am on a roll :) It was nearly impossible for me to narrow these down to blog, so consider yourself lucky, I could have put the entire session up. Bonus…you’ll be seeing much more of him. Beckham is one of the babies this year part of our “Baby Plan”, so he has another 4 more shoots already planned with me this year (insert yay me here!).

Mr. Brooks | Chillicothe Ohio Newborn Photography

Ready for another dose of too cute baby photos? Good, I’ve got it :)

Meet Charlie Books…or Brooks, as his friends call him. Not only is he as cute & relaxed as they come…but he’s got some pretty amazing parents too. Not too bad for being a baby. I was so excited to meet him and can’t wait to watch this little guy grow up with my little girl. They are going to be buddies for sure. Enjoy!
