Product Shots

I have had several people ask me about product shots lately. I am always up for a barter/trade system so hit me up if you are a business that makes/sells kids fashions, accessories, props, etc.

Basically, you send me some items to shoot, I send you photos, and I get to keep some items in exchange. :-)

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

I am so thrilled to share this newborn post with everyone. "Baby M" came into the studio last week and was such an amazing baby!! I love it when I can get my hands on a newborn within those first few days when they are still all sleepy and dreamy! "M" was exactly one week old for this session and couldn't have been a better baby. He allowed me to pose him in just about any position, move him around about 1,000 times and never once get upset.

Okay, that's a bit of a lie because he wasn't too thrilled about the airplane shot but with a little patience, we made it work and I am so glad because it is such an amazing one-of-a-kind shot! I just love it when parents bring their own things into the studio and this rocking airplane was one of those props that just made the shot! "M"'s grandmother (who passed away before he was born) collected Longenberger baskets so they brought one of her favorite pieces in to include in the shots as well. So very precious!

Sneak Peek: "Baby J and family" {Columbus Newborn Photographer}

This is the first post in a string of newborn posts coming soon. I am convinced that babies all seem to come in phases! "Baby J" was born a little earlier than expected so Mom and Dad were a bit caught off guard. :-) Our plan was to get some newborn photos of "J", some photos of "Big Sister H" with "J" and some family photos. "H" wasn't too thrilled with the idea of photos for the first half of the session but by then end she was warming up to me. "Baby J" eager to keep an eye on the world and wasn't too excited about sleeping but after a couple feedings, we managed to get him to sleep...

Sneak Peek: "Mommy-To-Be S" {Columbus Maternity Photographer}

My good friend "S" came into the studio last week for a quickie little maternity session with not a minute to spare. I haven't even had time to post the sneak peeks and "Baby I" has already arrived! (Keep an eye on the blog for her newborn session coming soon!) We had a great time playing around with a few ideas all while keeping it easy on her considering she was days after from giving birth to her third child. :-)

Sneak Peek: "Little D" {Columbus Baby Photography}

The last time I saw this little guy, he was only a few days old. My how time flies! "Little D" is now 16 months old and will soon be a big brother! Kids this age are always a challenge...especially boys...but once we figured out the kinks, it was all good! I can't wait to meet "Little D"'s new baby brother in a couple months!

Sneak Peek: "Little H" {Columbus Baby Photographer}

Allow me to introduce to you our latest graduate in the "Little Milestones" package...one year old "Little H". This little guy is just adorable! He has had these perfect little blond curls from his first session back when he was 4 months old. I was so thrilled to see that they were still just as cute as they were 8 months ago. "H" is one of those boys who just want to go go go...so it made it a little more challenging to get him to sit still for a couple minutes! I had to pull out all the stops and in the end...the monkey sound won! :-) Congrats on making it through the first year...and I hope to see you guys again in a few months.

Spring Mini-Sessions!

Sneak Peek: "Little P" {Columbus Baby Photographer}

I just love repeat clients. I photographed this little guy back when he was just a newborn baby. It always amazes me how quickly they grow up! "Little P" was excited to explore my studio and try out ALL of my toys! Thanks for stopping in, guys!
