Finally got my blog back up & able to have photos post again. Yes, a photographer who couldn’t get photos on the website. Just a bit ironic, wouldn’t you say? These are from Round 2 of Camden’s 2 year session. It was a day of weird weather, alternating between clouds, sunshine & finally snow. We met up again at Allie Park.We cut things a little short for a second time, but got some gorgeous photos. Enjoy!
Katelyn’s mom called me about doing photos for a surprise birthday gift. She had reserved time in The Ohio Theatre lobby for Katelyn & Ethan’s engagement session. They are both really big fans of the theater & she thought it would be a unique idea for them to be able to get some unique engagement photos that were really “them.” I didn’t realize that both of them are in their last semester of school at Ohio State until right before the session when I wanted to touch base about “must take” photos & whether they wanted to go to any other locations. At that point, I decided we would just wait until our scheduled session and see where it took us–no need to add to their stress.
I met up with them at The Ohio Theatre & after thinking we were locked out, Ethan made a phone call & discovered we needed to enter through the secret back entrance. Once we were in, it was as fabulous as I remembered. We had a wonderful guide who gave us the tour of all the fun locations throughout the theater & told us it was rumored to be haunted–not hard to believe when you get into some of the obscure areas. It could be a great place to spend a whole day exploring all the fun nooks & crannies to be found–but we only had a short time.
After we made our rounds of the theater, Ethan requested a stop at Jeffrey Mansion in Bexley. It’s been one of my favorite spots in the Columbus area for many, many years, so of course I was up for that. Ethan had fond memories of Jeffrey Mansion from his childhood when he lived nearby. I love it because it has so many great spots for photos. The only thing that was missing was the beautiful foliage that is a big part of the scenery for a most of the year–but it was still beautiful. Enjoy the sneak peek!
It’s hard to believe that this little guy is already 2 years old. I met him as a newborn & have had the pleasure of photographing his milestones(actually even before he was born in a maternity session). Camden & his parents are a beautiful family & it’s always a pleasure to work with them! We got some great family photos, but the birthday boy was tired & not feeling up to photos for long–so we’ll finish up another day–hopefully with some warmer weather to make everyone a little happier! In the meantime, enjoy the sneak peek from round 1!
And to follow up my previous post–Miss Alexandra made her appearance not long after we did the maternity session. She slept all the way through her newborn session. I usually get at least a few wide awake photos in the few hours that a newborn session normally takes, but Alexandra was the exception. She woke up a couple of times to eat–and then fell right back to sleep–no time to grab any awake shots. She’s definitely a beauty–can you tell how proud her big brother is?
We had a chilly day to get together to do Danielle & Dan’s maternity session. I met up with them & their little cutie(soon-to-be-big-brother) Liam at Inniswood Metro Gardens. It’s always a beautiful location, but anyone who knows me, knows I love fall–so it’s at it’s most beautiful–in my opinion. We made our way around to various spots in the park. Liam was having more fun running around & exploring than he was with the whole photography thing–but that made for some cute photos in itself.
We made it to almost all the spots that we wanted to hit before the rain came. We were trapped in a semi-dry spot for a little while until we could make a run for our cars. Enjoy the sneak-peek of this adorable family!
Still going through all of the things that never got posted through the holiday season. Between the top-secret surprise Christmas photos & the holiday craziness, I missed posting a lot of fun sessions. This one is actually one of my favorite holiday sessions!
I just adore these beautiful sisters–& mom & dad aren’t too bad either They were just getting settled into their new home in Westerville & had me come over to do Olivia’s 6 month portraits–along with some Christmas pics. They could both be little models–so cute & so many great expressions! Of course everyone knows that I just adore the little girl wardrobes & all the cool accessories. I took along my vintage mini-sled & it fit in perfectly with the girl’s Christmas dresses. Fun session with a great family!
We had some really interesting weather for Hunter’s senior session. We were joined by his mom & his girlfriend. We started out with some studio stuff at my place, then headed out to OU-L to get some photos around the reconstruction of the covered bridge & some with his truck. It was definitely chilly, but not too bad. Then we headed over to Rising Park–& got some more great shots. As we were wrapping up, the weather decided to change–snow! I had to get a few shots with the snowflakes. Fun session–enjoy the sneak peek–lots more to come!
As I’m trying to play catch-up on my blogging, I realized that there were some fall sessions that never got blogged because the photos were going to be Christmas gifts. Cara & Greg’s family session was one of them–but I can’t go without blogging this absolutely beautiful family. We met up at Slate Run Metro Park just outside Canal Winchester for their session & made our way all around the park to find lots of fantastic locations. We headed over to the Historical Farm too & not only found some more fun locations, but found a fall festival going on with fresh pressed cider & pumpkins. How fun is that!
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Cara & Greg before with other family events–weddings, large family sessions, seniors–I just love the whole family! This session was a little different since it allowed us some time just to walk around & have fun with the different spots that we liked. Enjoy the preview!
Still in catch-up mode. Here’s a sneak peek from Cassie’s senior session. It’s actually a sneak peek of her indoor session–still have outdoor to come, once the weather warms up. Cassie brought some cute outfits, and we did a mix of shots–she couldn’t decide glasses or no, so we did a lot of similar shots with & without. I had fun with Cassie & her mom & look forward to round 2!
Unfortunately Lily was not feeling her best when I arrived to photograph her for her 6 month session. Mommy and Daddy had some awesome clothes ready to go for the photos. She’s quite the fashionista already–and anyone who knows me, knows I love the girly wardrobes! Boys just don’t have the fun stuff that girls do–tutus & headbands, & Lily even had baby high heels–how cool is that?
We still managed to get some great photos–some beautiful smiles from the beautiful little girl–but thank God for Photoshop–I didn’t want to stop for a nose wipe when we were getting smiles! We didn’t get to use all of the outfits that we were hoping for, but managed to get in a few clothes changes & some cute family photos. We even headed out in the snow for a few photos with the vintage sled in what looked like a winter wonderland . Enjoy the sneak peek!
