Being a photographer of toddlers is quite an adventure! It really is a lot of fun interacting with young children and seeing their personality shine through. While everyone loves a picture of their child smiling at the camera, I find that my clients' favorite images are the ones that show their child in their element just being themselves. I always enjoy photographing this guy, and can't believe he is three already!
Fall is finally here! The leaves are at their peak, and this family had a gorgeous night at the park for family pictures.
Twins!! I love photographing toddlers, but twin boys was a real treat! These guys were so full of personality and it was a joy to take their pictures. We started this photography session indoors and then moved outside for some family pictures. These guys are the cutest!
I do love me some fall outdoor backyard family photography sessions! These are the best. It is low stress for families, doggies are happily involved, and it is convenient for everyone! These lovely ladies and their parents were so much fun to photograph. Here are a few highlights from the evening.
As summer comes to its close, there have still been plenty of hot days here in southern Ohio! This family photography portrait session was located at a park in Trenton, OH, complete with a breathtaking sunset and several hot air balloons passing by. It was in the mid-80s during this session, but these boys and their parents were troopers!
If you have lived in Mason for any length of time, you may recognize some of these fine folks. I have known this family for over 20 years already, and always have a blast spending time with them. Taking their family photos is always lots of fun. Here are some of the highlights!
If you need a dose of cuteness, look no further. These guys are always a blast to photograph and today was no exception. And now the baby of the family is no longer a baby! Levi is 1! Welcome to toddlerhood.
My sweet friends are getting ready to return to their other home out of the country. While I'm so sad to see them go, I am excited for this next chapter with their new addition! They wanted one last family photo session before they leave, so we headed to a local park. You may recognize this mama and baby from the main page of this website! They are all so beautiful inside and out and I am blessed to know them.
The original plan for this session was to travel to a park but with four large dogs, this family decided the backyard would be a better idea. Honestly, I love backyard sessions! Everyone is more relaxed and comfortable being in a familiar place, pets are welcome to take part (including lizards - see Kermit below!), and the pictures are more meaningful because they showcase home. If you are looking for family pictures but are hung up on a location, just take a look outside your door!
This sweet family has lived a few streets away from us since we moved to Liberty Township and they recently just purchased a new house a whole 25 minutes away. How dare they! Just kidding. I'm super excited for them, and I know we will still see them a lot because I plan on lounging by their new pool all summer! ;)
As a fun little goodbye to the old house, I came over for a family photo session the day before they closed. We only had a short time before the new owners came for their final walk through, so we did a quick session using the beautiful shiplap wall in the family room, a few pictures on the stairs, and then finished on the front porch.
