Session Faves: Latham. 3 weeks old. {Columbus Newborn Photographer}

Three week old Latham (love the creative name, by the way) came into the studio last week for his newborn session and being that he was already 3 weeks old, he decided that he needed to stay awake for THE ENTIRE SESSION... despite the shushing, soft music, heated space, fuzzy blankets, etc. (Yes, I realize there is a photo of him with his eyes closed, but I assure you, he was not 'sleeping'!) I must say though, if you are going to stay awake the whole time... I couldn't have asked for a more well behaved baby!

Session Faves: Sheray Party Candids. {Columbus Party Photographer}

Details, details, details...one of my favorite things about photographing a birthday party. I am telling you, these moms think of everything! The theme for Asher's first birthday party was "Around the World" and they had it all...food from almost every country, animal print decorations, a homemade suitcase cake with a fondant gorilla and rice crispie globe, handmade party hats...you name it! Everything was perfect and I think everyone had a great time. :-) Happy Birthday, Asher!

Session Faves: Sheray Party. Portrait Sessions. {Columbus Party Photographer}

I was asked to photograph little Asher's first birthday party in Cincinnati this past weekend. His mom is friends with one of my former clients who (sadly for me) moved to California and when she mentioned that they were coming back to Ohio to celebrate his birthday with family, she called me and it was all set up. We had a little downtime during the party and since the whole family was together, we decided to get some family shots...out in the 99 degree heat with a heat index of 110 degrees! Trust me, we were all melting...but these images were SOOO very worth it! (Party photos will follow soon)

Session Faves: The Lillie Family. {Columbus Family Photographer}

Last year when I met this family, little Kaden was only a newborn...now he is a full fledged kid! This beautiful family lives in Armenia and comes back to visit family for a month during the summer which makes it the perfect time for a family photo session. We even included grandma and a cousin in the session for a couple shots. Can't wait to see you guys again next year!! Safe travels back to Armenia!

Session Faves: Harper. One Year Birthday Party. {Columbus Child Photographer}

I was so happy to be asked to document Harper's One Year Birthday Party last weekend. I have had the opportunity to photograph this family for the past 3 1/2 years and also shot older brother Miles' first birthday party as well. Let me tell you...this mama knows how to throw a party! Everything is thought out from the homemade banana monkey cake, matching cupcakes, pink and green party supplies that just happen to match the birthday girl's dress! Perfection!! Happy Birthday Little Harper!
