Samantha Turns 1: Birthday Session & Party - Friendship Park - Gahanna, Ohio

Samantha Turns 1: Birthday Session & Party - Friendship Park - Gahanna, Ohio

Miss Samantha has grown so much over the past year! You can just see her little personality radiating from every inch of her! Most notable are all of the expressions that she seems to have. It was such a treat to be able to capture her with some of her closet loved ones during her 1 Year Birthday Party and Portrait Session at Friendship Park in Gahanna. The park was the perfect location for the party as well as offered some wonderful scenery for portraits. 

Enjoy some of my favorite photographs from Sammie's 1st birthday!

Ariana Newborn & Family Portrait Session: Inniswood Metro Gardens - Westerville, Ohio

Ariana Newborn & Family Portrait Session: Inniswood Metro Gardens - Westerville, Ohio

This past spring the Gonzalez family welcomed Miss Ariana! I was so excited to meet her and to capture their family in their own portrait session shortly after they brought her home from the hospital in May. I've had the honor of capturing each of their children's portraits from newborn until present day. They wanted newborn photographs of Ariana, but also wanted a large focus to be on all the kids and the family during their session. We ventured to Inniswood Metro Gardens in Westerville, Ohio - a local favorite spot known for it's beautiful gardens that are maintained and plants changed throughout the year.  I joke that "it's always blooming"! As usual, it was a gorgeous setting and a perfect May evening for photos.

My favorite part of the session was seeing older siblings Emilia and Damian so excited and in awe of their little sister. Enjoy some of my favorite photographs from their session!

I've had the honor of photographing Delaney from her newborn session through her first year of life! I photographed her parents' wedding back in 2014 and have enjoyed seeing their family grow and documenting it for all time. So very excited to feature some of my favorites from Delaney's photo shoot at the studio!

Family portraits are hands down one of my favorite things to photograph. I loved welcoming the Pease family into the studio and working with them again! I first met them all during Hannah and Joel's wedding last spring. (It's hard to believe that it's already been a year!)

Since that time, Hannah and Joel had their daughter Olivia and Hannah's dad had been wanting to get a family portrait of everyone together. This past weekend we got to make that happen! :-)

Baby Olivia is one of the sweetest babies and totally rocked her blue and white headband and a smile during their session! One of the perks of a family portrait session, is that we're able to take a lot of different group shots so they can enjoy a variety in their photographs. We definitely had some fun during our time together.

Enjoy a few of my favorites!
