I have spent all spring welcoming beautiful newborn babies. I am determined to share more with you because they are just too cute to resist. This is little Levi and his GORGEOUS big sister! He was a few days older than most of the newborn babies that I photograph yet he slept so peacefully.
You can see more of my work in my portfolio. I woud love to talk with you about scheduling a newborn session.

It is time for another edition of 11-on-11. If I had it my way, Spring would have sprung by now and I would be bursting with excitement about how the amazing foliage outside went hand in hand with amazing light to produce the best set of images imaginable. Unfortunately, I live in central Ohio and winter sometimes seems never ending. And by sometimes I mean always.
Lucky for me, regardless of the drab background and overcast skies, I still have two super adorable kids. The conditions may not have been as I envisioned this month but I walked away with a handful of pictures, one of which includes myself with the two of them. So I’ll count this a win!
I just bought a new camera for the sole purpose of learning how to shoot video (for my kids, not for my clients). I convinced myself (and my ever so supportive and long-suffering husband ) that the upgrade was priceless because come on! I would be creating elaborate feature films to document the childhood of our two boys! I had super realistic expectations of opening the box, setting up the tripod, pressing record and immediately having a wealth of cinematic perfection on my hands.
Then I woke up to reality and realized Oh wow! Shooting video is HARD. It is a whole different ballgame than still photography.
The tripod alone complicates things ten-fold. I am pretty sure I look like a fool to any on-looker as they watch me fiddle with the knobs and levers in an attempt to maneuver the tripod to point the camera toward two young boys that are moving an adorable million miles an hour. Then there is the component of trying to manually focus while two young boys that are moving an adorable million miles an hour. Then there is the component of using a prime lens outdoors while two young boys that are moving an adorable million miles an hour. Lastly, there is the component of not being able to walk away from the gigantic camera and tripod for fear of it falling over while making cinematic perfection out of the antics of two young boys that are moving an adorable million miles an hour.
The easiest thing to do would be to throw in the video towel and forget about those award-winning home videos I had envisioned. But the fact would still remain that I have two young boys that move an adorable million miles an hour and every single step they take is worthy of being documented. Eye on the prize!
When people would talk to me about my crazy 365 project they would almost always mention how fortunate my boys were that they would have so many pictures to look back on as adults. In all honesty, I am not convinced that my two rascals will cherish those images in the way that so many people think they will. (Although, their wives might be a different story!) I can say with near certainty, though, that they will cherish any video footage that I could possibly create from their childhood.
Just as I started from scratch learning how to expose a photograph I will learn how to use the cumbersome tripod and I will gladly take videos of them every month. I certainly hope that as time passes my skills improve but in my heart I know it is not my skills (or lack there of ) that will make a difference to them, it will be the fact that as grown men they will be able to look back on their childhood and savor it.
Enjoy the cinematic perfection!

Hadlee was just 5 months old for our baby session and as gorgeous as can be. Her eyes! Oh, her eyes!!!
Newborn photography is my first love but baby photography is a CLOSE second. Of course I love to see how my newborns have grown but there are so many other aspects of this age that make my heart happy. I love to see the inquisitive nature of babies, I love to see Mom and Dad make their little ones smile and laugh, I love to see how they love their Sophie (yes, every baby LOVES Sophie!), and I even love to see how quickly they tire out from being such adorable models.

It is so wonderful to introduce the last newborn I worked with in 2012 on my brand new blog. 2012 was a wonderful year for my business, so much so that it was difficult for me to find time to share my work here. January is notoriously a time of year where we try to catch up, organize life and start new hence the updated blog layout. It feels so fresh, so natural and so fitting for my work. I am so excited to be able to finally share it with you along with this lovely little guy.
Baby Alex arrived just before Christmas and was ten days old when I met him. He was nothing short of a pleasure to photograph.
If you have seen me work with a newborn (or two) then you know that I am calm and very confident in my craft. In all honesty though, when I have a new family travel far enough for their session that it requires a hotel stay I start to get little butterflies in my stomach. It is such an honor to be chosen and trusted in such a strong way. I am so blessed by each family that walks into my door I hope they can feel same way for many years to come as they reflect on their newborn portraits.
