My job as a baby photographer has to be better than your job!! When you¬†look at this little one with those big blue eyes, amazing hair and the perfect amount of “baby chub” I think you’ll agree. ūüėČ ¬†¬†When I shot¬†her newborn pictures I didn’t think she could possibly get more beautiful. Was I wrong or what?!!!

Enjoy¬†Janie’s six month portraits. XOXO!

Not only am¬†I lucky enough to be this little sweetie’s newborn photographer, but I’ll also get to¬†watch her (and her older brother) grow up! ¬†Knowing how perfectly behaved her older brother is, it was no surprise that Emery was a perfect model for her portrait session. ūüėČ

I take newborn pictures for many¬†families that are welcoming their second or even third child. ¬†This year, I’m starting to realize that those days are seemingly¬†long ago for us. Maybe it’s because my boys are both in school full time; or maybe its because my youngest is almost as tall as I am (not quite; but soon enough), but just recently, I started to realize how long ago car seat carriers, bottles and swaddles were for us. ¬†Being around Emery and her family helps to remind us how much we need to savor every stage, the good the bad and the ugly, ¬†because the years go by way too fast.

Well, hello 2016!!! It has been far too long since I have shared my baby photography, but rest assured, I am still here.:)My fall session schedule was as CRAZY as ever, so I spent the first few weeks following the holidays catching my breath. I am refreshed and ready to meet many more wonderful newborn babies this year.

My first newborn¬†of the year was this precious little guy, James. ¬†At just 4 days young, he was as cute as could be. ¬†As an added bonus¬†he brought his brother, with the most amazing curly hair, along with him. You know that I have two boys (that aren’t really babies anymore)¬†of my own, so¬†when a little guy has a baby brother my heart flutters. This¬†was the perfect way to start my year!

I photograph¬†newborn babies…. really cute, very snuggly, extra lovable newborn babies. My work never gets old and two sessions are never exactly the same; even when I am working with a family for the THIRD time like this session with Finn. I love my job for those reasons. ¬†I REALLY love my job when talking to a mom during a newborn photo session feels like I am chatting with a girlfriend!

Enjoy a sneak peek of this beautiful baby boy! XOXO!

When you send your¬†first born baby¬†off to Kindergarten¬†all you can do is pray that the person leading their classroom will care for them, love them, and teach them as if your baby was her own. That first time is rough, no lie. But the second time around, if you’re blessed to send your baby into those same hands that you now know and trust, you can rest just a little easier. Miss Janie’s mama is that special person in our life; the one that will leave a lasting impression on our hearts as their first elementary school teacher. It goes without saying that I was honored that she trusted me to hold and photograph her baby girl today. Isn’t she a beauty?!!!!

Enjoy¬†Janie’s sneak peek. XOXO!

The first few newborns that I photographed are about to start¬†kindergarten. WHAT? How is that even possible?!! Sawyer’s older sister is one of those very special babies. She was the one that gave me the confidence I needed to continue taking pictures of¬†¬†newborn babies. Of course she has grown so much in five years as did my photography:)but as a baby, she¬†slept like an angel. Sawyer was no different. He was as cute as could be and oh so good to me. Enjoy his sneak peek! XOXO!

Let’s be honest, it’s 2015, everyone wants digital files of their newborn pictures.¬† Actually, our (yes, I said OUR) obsession of¬†digital images goes well beyond professional¬†photography. We obsess over taking¬†pictures of everything, from first baths to bike rides, to first days of school; and we keep those pictures near and dear to our heart – on our phones. ūüėČ ¬†Do you see the problem?¬†Even I, ¬†a photographer myself, am guilty of this. Whether my pictures are on Instagram, Facebook, or my website, they are most often only in digital form and viewed from my phone.¬†¬†I do have portraits hanging in my home; but some,¬†eerrrrr most, of them are years out of date. For that, there is no good excuse.

Recently, I read an article that talked about the value of having family portraits that are¬†printed and visible¬†daily¬†in your home. ¬†Studies show that seeing those family portraits regularly helps children to have a constant feeling¬†that they belong, are cared for, and are important. ¬†Wow! ¬†I am sure most all¬†parents would agree that they would go to great lengths to help boost their son or daughter’s self esteem. In reality though, this isn’t a great length; it isn’t time consuming, and doesn’t even have to be expensive. ¬†We just need to follow through by taking those digitals off of our phones and putting them on the walls.

So, do I sell digital files? ABSOLUTLEY! And furthermore I believe in the reasons that everyone wants¬†them. ¬†Besides, would anyone even hire me if I didn’t sell digital files?!! ¬†That beingg said,¬†¬†I also ¬†offer beautiful finished products. I¬†love¬†to turn your digital files into gallery wrapped canvases, keepsake albums, and wall and desk portraits to be framed. ¬†The truth is, ¬†it doesn’t matter whether I am designing a gorgeous heirloom album, or if you are printing your iPhone pictures yourself, as long as you and your kids can see and touch those pictures you’ve helped your kids get a leg up in¬†this the crazy beautiful world. XOXO!

My own baby, my first first baby, is officially 7 & a HALF years old. ¬†That HALF makes him closer to 8 years old by the day, and to me, saying “eight” is really hard. ¬†Eight just seems old. It is half way to 16 for goodness sake. ¬†What happened to my perfectly happy, content, BABY boy? ¬†Where did my tightly swaddled, pacifier loving, good eating, sound sleeping, newborn baby boy go? In the past 7 years we have¬†traded in the pacifier and swaddle blankets for athletic wear, the stroller for a 20″ bike and his¬†bottles are now filled with gatorade.¬†¬†The eating habits – well, he still eats nonstop. He’s still my baby though, right?

One goal that I set for 2015 is to create more video footage of both of my boys. Videos that will help me to savor time and that they can enjoy when they look back on them as parents of their own. Right now, legos are helping us survive the cold winter here in Columbus, Ohio.  In December I made a stop motion video using nearly 200 still pictures of him assembling a Lego truck.

And while we are talking about my baby and legos, shortly after Christmas our train table – turned lego table – was maxed out and required us to overhaul our play area. The below image shows our new Lego table that we built using four¬†Trofast Storage bins from Ikea. For the table top we used a¬†simple¬†MDF board purchased at our local Home Depot. We rounded the corners (with 2 active boys someone is bound to get hurt by sharp corners) and painted the top.¬†We used velcro to attached the table top to the storage bins so that we can remove it when our boys grow past the Lego stage. The bins around the table are filled with all of their toys, not just Legos. We wanted it to be a catch all – space saving table! Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions!

When I¬†meet little ones for their newborn portraits I get to hear all about their individual birth story. No two stories are alike¬†and I will never¬†get tired of hearing them. But all too often we forget that some people have far different stories. Stories of praying. Stories of¬†waiting. Stories of being chosen. ¬†Gabriella’s family has those stories!

Of course every birth is special, and¬†every time a family grows it’s exciting! But; when you are chosen to be the family¬†of a newborn baby by her birth mom… well… that takes the excitement to a whole new level. She has an older brother and sister that have their own stories, too. I could have listened to their stories¬†for hours. ¬†In reality though, those stories are simply¬†minor¬†details in what has already been 6 months of Gabriella’s¬†life. ¬†She is happy, beautiful, strong and with her forever family.¬†End of story.

My favorite newborns¬†are those¬†that bring along their¬†big brothers or big sisters that¬†were once “my babies”. ¬†I get to see how¬†my babies¬†have grown into toddlers. I get to¬†hear their little voices, see them walking, and most importantly try to coax them into a portrait in a much different way than when they were first here as a newborn. Maclyn was one of the special ones that brought her big brothers with her, and I couldn’t have been be more excited! For now, I’ll just share some of Maclyn; because after all, every little girl deserves the spotlight at one time or another. I hope you enjoy her newborn portrait sneak peek! XO!

After a long string of newborn girls, I finally got my hands on a sweet baby boy¬†with¬†most awesome spiked hair. ¬†My oldest had CRAZY hair at¬†birth, so of course I immediately fell in love with this little guy. ¬†To be honest, I am not sure that he fell for me as quickly as I did him, but with patience and persistence on my part he began to see things my way and posed perfectly. ūüėČ

Zivan’s mom has spent years sharing in the first moments with new families. ¬†It gave me goosebumps hearing her describe her own experience of meeting the new man in her life just a couple days before Mother’s Day. ¬†Quite fitting, to say the least. ¬†Enjoy Zivan’s¬†session sneak peek. XOXO!!

Brooklyn kicked off my week of newborn baby girls in the very best way. She was comfy, sleepy, and perfectly beautiful. ¬†I think it’s safe to say she’s a princess. ¬†Enjoy her sneak peek.¬†¬†XOXO!

Over the past 5+ years, I’ve¬†had¬†more than my fair share of experience as¬†newborn photographer. Because of that, I am¬†confident when I say that Eleanor would be considered a dream to photograph by any baby photographer!! ¬†She’s beautiful, tiny, curly, sleepy and smilely. What else could I as for?!!!

I’ve been on a baby girl streak¬†for awhile! I will be back soon to share more of Eleanor and the other NINE newborn¬†girls that I have worked with recently. Tomorrow, I’ll break that streak when a little boy comes to see me for his newborn portraits.¬†¬†For now, enjoy a little sneak peek of Eleanor’s session while I head off to prep for the little¬†guy that I get to meet tomorrow.

Beautiful¬†baby Kate posed for her newborn pictures at just 4 days old! When Kate’s mom contacted me to book her session, I was over the moon excited. I photographed her big brother two and a half years ago (where does time go?!!); so as excited as I was to meet Kate, I was just as excited to see her family again! Sometimes I am amazed at how lucky I am to share in these special times with SUCH GREAT¬†families!! Enjoy her session sneak peek. XOXO!!

I have been photographing newborns for five years now. Wow, did I just say FIVE???! ¬†Needless to say, it¬†is rare that I experience a “first” at this point, but sweet baby Henley was a first for me; she was my¬†‘first’ third newborn from one family. How awesome is it that a family would trust me with not one, not two, but three of their precious babies?! For them, Henley was a first as well; she is the first baby girl. Congratulations to her wonderful family! ¬†Enjoy¬†a couple sneak peeks from her session yesterday…
