Columbus Parent Magazine- October 2009 Issue

I am so happy with the way this cover turned out...SO CUTE!! When I shot this photo of "Miss M and Little G" at the Casting Call, I just knew it would be chosen for the cover photo. It just seemed to fit the "boys vs. girls" theme perfectly. Enjoy your 15 minutes of fame, guys!

Sneak Peek: "The R Kids" {BABY STEPS STUDIOS- Columbus Child Photography}

We have been bitten with the flu bug around our house this week, so I am a little behind in posting these sneak peeks. I think we are all on the mend...hopefully!

These little kiddos were so cute and cuddly! I just love when older brothers are willing to cuddle with their little baby sisters. And...check out his adorable blonde curly hair! Too cute!

Sneak Peeks from Casting Call {BABY STEPS STUDIOS- Columbus Child Photography}

I had so much fun with this past Casting Call for Columbus Parent Magazine! We were searching for some "boy/girl" siblings for a future cover. It was great to see some previous clients and meet some new faces as well. These kids were all so hilarious! I seriously think I was laughing the entire time. Enjoy my faves! (Keep an eye on the blog for future Casting Calls!)

Columbus Parent Magazine- September 2009 Issue

Better late than never, right? Being that I am not a sports fan, nor do I follow sports or OSU (no offense to all you die hard Buckeyes out there!), I must admit that when the editors of Columbus Parent asked if I would be willing to do a shoot of Kirk Herbstreit for a future cover, I said, "Sure. Who's that"?. I think I could literally hear her jaw hit the floor! Oops! Once I told some friends that I was going to be photographing him, I realized from their reactions that it was a big deal. He is a celeb! :-) Here are a few of my favorites from our quick shoot as well as the September cover. There may still be a few copies floating around out there.

Sneak Peek: "Baby M" {BABY STEPS STUDIOS- Columbus Baby Photographer}

This little guy was a feisty one! Four week old "Baby M" was wide awake for this whole shoot which always makes it a little more difficult. He was such a cutie, though, that it was hard to get a bad shot of him! He has the cutest little features...tons of dark hair, pouty little lips, big expressive eyes. Adorable! Enjoy your sneak peeks, guys!

Sneak Peek: "Little E" {BABY STEPS STUDIOS- Columbus Baby Photography}

"Little E" came into the studio last week for a one year session complete with a "smash the cake" mini-session. "E" and I had so much fun dancing around the studio, stacking blocks, and playing with tons of balls! Once we had gotten out fill of the typical boy shots, "E"'s Mom and Dad broke out a mini birthday cake and we let the stripped down "Little E" attack the cake! He was such a cutie! Happy Birthday, "E"!

Sneak Peek: "Baby M" {BABY STEPS STUDIOS- Columbus Newborn Photographer}

I'm sure you remember this family from our previous sessions with "Big Sisters T and C" as well as "Mommy-to-be T"'s maternity session. I couldn't have asked for a better newborn session! "Baby M" was so cuddly and sleepy the whole time. She was willing to let me do just about anything with her...so you know I took advantage of that and got some of those amazing sleepy baby poses we are known for! I can't wait to watch all three of these adorable little girls grow up over the next few years. Enjoy your sneak peeks!
