Believe it or not, tomorrow will begin August and the official Back-to-School Season!

Sneak Peek: A couple studio shots of Kyan

My parents were in town last weekend and helped to put the finishing touches on my studio set-up. Since I had everything out, Kyan decided that it was time for a photo shoot of himself. "Ah-ee ee cheese!" (Mommy, me cheese!) So I thought I would share a few! Enjoy my adorable 2 year old...my only child who actually LIKES having his picture taken!

Sneak Peek: "Little E's First Birthday" {BABY STEPS STUDIOS- Columbus Baby Photographer}

"Little E" had the most rockin' first birthday party ever! From the rock-star invite (that I of course designed), to the pink and purple decor, to the fabulous cupcakes (okay, I had a hand in those, too!)...her party was picture perfect! She wasn't super excited to wear her tutu again, but as long as Grandma Tucker was holding her, she was all good! "E" dove into her custom cake and made quite a dent in it before pushing it away! Happy Birthday, "E"!

Bathtime with my kiddos!

I very rarely post photos of my own kids, mainly because I don't have the time. I try to spend as much time as I can with them and sometimes that means putting down the camera and just enjoying the moment. I was uploading a client session the other day and found these hidden gems on my card that I had completely forgotten about. So enjoy a night in the tub with my kiddos...

Calling all Former Clients!

Having visited many repeat client homes, I know many of you have done some pretty amazing things with your wall displays of past Baby Steps Studios images. I thought it would be cool to show future clients what you have done. Send your snapshot to me at amy@babystepsstudios.com. There will be prizes awarded for the best entries!! :-)

Vacation Photos (finally!!)

I know it has taken me almost a month to actually post photos from our vacation but I have been busy with other stuff...you know...clients, kids, family, etc.! As promised, here is a small sampling of photos from our trip out west. You can see more on my Flickr page if you just need to see more! Enjoy!

Columbus Parent Magazine - August Issue

It's getting close to that time of the year! The time that kids all over the world dread, the time when they have to go back to school after months of summer fun. This was a fun back to school themed shoot that we did at Creekside, that will be sent to Columbus Parent Magazine, and hopefully will appear on the August cover. So get those apples ready! Just make sure there are not any worms in them before you give it to your teacher (:

Sneak Peek: "Baby C" {Baby Steps Studios- Columbus Baby Photographer}

Meet fourteen-week old "Baby C." This was his first session in the Milestones Package. He had the most adorable chubby cheeks, one of my favorites in a shoot. He was not too found of being on his belly, but we got a couple good shots without torture. I cannot wait to see him next time for his next Milestones session when he's sitting up!
