2015 Senior Team Member : Savannah // Chillicothe High School Senior

When I was around 10, I begged and begged my mom to let me dye my hair black…you know, so I would look Hawaiian. I mean, that would do the trick, right? I swore when I turned 18, I’d do it myself…thankfully, I grew out of that idea, because I think we can all just visualize how not great I would look with black hair. My newest hair color obsession…red. Oh my, it’s so, so good. Thankfully, and strangely, my son has red hair…so he’s fulfilling my need for it in my life and I still get to see it every day. The point of this story…well, holy amazing hair, Savannah.

My first shoot with her was rained out…while we were shooting. This is something we can usually avoid and typically we know ahead of time it’s going to be cancelled, however this storm surprised us. I was only about 30% frustrated because it only meant that I got more time with Savannah! This girl was so much fun to photograph. She’s such a natural and just as sweet as she looks. I am so honored that she is one of my team members this year!

We saw this sucker and flipped out. I mean, I assume it’s a lawn roller or something, but whatever it was…I knew we were going to use it. Look at that detail!

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

Emily & Eric – The Wedding! | Columbus Ohio Wedding Photography

Since I’ve blogged 2 weddings from the entire 2013 year, I decided that to recap the year I am going to post backwards! Think of this as a gift, otherwise I’d be showing you a beach wedding while we are experiencing negative wind chills…so, you’re welcome ;)

First up is Emily & Eric! You might remember them from their engagement shoot, or even Emily from her sister’s wedding in 2011…and I just went to find a link and realized I never blogged her wedding either…I tell you, I am really bad at this blogging thing!! Anyway, I love photographing weddings where I have already gotten to know some of the members of the wedding party…it felt like a little reunion! Here’s a little peak into their day!
