Models needed!

We are looking to do a few image specific covers for Columbus Parent Magazine in the upcoming months so I am looking for some new models. If you are interested in your child possibly appearing on a future cover and think your child could fit one of these topics, please email me with your child's name, age, and recent photo to amy@babystepsstudios.com.

Children’s spirituality: school aged child with religious ties (maybe First Communion, praying, etc.)

Non-traditional families: Gay or Lesbian Family

Brother and Sister: similar age, ideally age 6-10

Shoots will take place during the week so please let us know your availability. The shoot will be under my direction for the purpose of shooting the cover image. You are under no obligation to purchase prints from your session, however, they will be available if you chose to make a purchase. Columbus Parent Magazine has the final say over the cover image. Being selected to be part of this shoot does not insure that your child will appear on a future cover but that your images will be submitted to Columbus Parent Magazine for approval. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns! Thanks!

Sneak Peek: "Baby A"

This little guy was so adorable! "Little A" was about 6 weeks old for this shoot which means we didn't get any of those peaceful sleeping shots but he made up for it with his gorgeous blue eyes! "A"'s Mom is graduating with a PhD next week, so she wanted to get a few shots of her with "A"...which was such a great idea! How amazing is it to have two such life changing events happening at the same time! I am so glad to have been able to be there to document this time in their lives. Enjoy!

Sneak Peek: "Baby E"

Meet 3 week old "Baby E". This little guy was so sweet. I just love it when they give me both sleeping and wide awake shots! He had such beautiful blue eyes. The whole family was so kind and welcoming...I look forward to shooting with them again in the future.

Side note to the new Grandpa: I hope your surgery goes well and everything is okay!

As typically happens when we go diaper-less during a shoot, "E" decided to give Dad a little "shower". I managed to catch this one of film, so as promised, Mom and Dad will be receiving a complimentary 4x6 print of the image! LOL!

Are you a Follower?

I just added the "Follower" widget to the blog. I know many of you are weekly (or daily) readers of my blog and to thank you for that, I am offering a special. The first 5 people to add themselves as a "follower" (in the little box to the right) will receive a $10 print credit towards a future session. :-)

Sneak Peek: Happy Birthday, "Little A"

You may remember this adorable "Little A" from our shoot last July. I was so excited to have the opportunity to come back to shoot her 2nd birthday party. It amazed me how much she has grown up in just 8 months! "A" is such a little girl, now...running around with her cute little dress on, demanding certain shoes, carrying a purse filled with jewelry! She is my kind of girl! We got some great shots of The Birthday Girl before the other guests arrived. The house was full of little kids running around. So much fun!

Sneak Peek: My kiddos!

Since I had an opening in my schedule for my mini-sessions last weekend, I had my husband bring the boys over for a quick little session. Let me tell you...my kids want nothing to do with me and my camera, so it was not an easy shoot! I did manage to get a few keepers though, despite Kyan's busted lip from a fall the night before! Enjoy!

Sneak Peek: "Little M"

This was such a fun session! I did mom's maternity session and "Little M"'s newborn session about 9 months ago, so it was so exciting to see "M" now that she is growing up! I can't believe how big she has gotten. She was so smiley and happy to play! We got such great photos that we were done in about 30 minutes! Can't complain about that! Enjoy your sneak peeks!

Sneak Peek: "Mommy-To-Be A"

I have been completely booked with maternity sessions lately! It must be something in the water! ;-) This session was another of the more modest sessions as "Mommy-To-Be A" is school teacher. "A" is gorgeous and had such a cute little baby bump! We had a great time shooting and just chatting. "A" and her husband "J" are such a cute couple and will make such great parents. I can't wait to meet the new little one soon!
