Family Photo Session at Inniswood Metro Gardens

Children, Family

“A son is a promise that a father will always have a friend.” I love this quote because it shows just how special the father-son relationship is. I was honored to capture this in a recent father-son session. The hour long session was held at the beautiful Inniswood Metro Gardens in Westerville, Ohio.  The girlfriend […]

Children, Family

A first birthday is so special, especially when you reflect on the past year and think about how tiny your little one was and how far they’ve come. While first birthdays are exciting, they can also be emotional. You may ask yourself, “how is my little baby already one?” Even though you look forward to […]

Columbus Ohio Easter Photography Sessions

Children, Family

There’s really no better way to celebrate Easter than with mini photo sessions that include live rabbits. Thanks to a rabbit breeder Aimee Kaiser of Heavenly Hollands Rabbitry, I was able to do just that.  All the rabbits were Holland Lops, which is the most popular rabbit breed in the U.S. They’ve been handled by […]

Extended family sessions are my absolute favorite! They offer an excuse for grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and everyone else to get together and make some wonderful memories. This is a huge deal, especially if family members don’t live near one another. During an extended family session, I witness all kinds of happy moments. Grandparents get […]

Julie is one of those clients who contacted me for multiple sessions.  At first, she brought her adorable girls to my unicorn sessions. I’m assuming she loved the […]

She reached out to tell me that her family was getting together and she needed a photographer. Her parents recently moved to Powell, Ohio and both Ashley and her sister live in […]

Ohio Equine Photography Session

Normally, I photograph families. Recently, however, I had the opportunity to take photos of five horses and jumped on it. These horses are owned by Connie, the owner of the “unicorn” horse that I hired. Connie and I decided that I would take portraits of her horses in exchange for her time during my unicorn […]

Columbus Ohio Family Photography Session – Inniswood Metro Gardens

      Friends that become clients (or the other way around) are such blessings! I first met the “W” family at Vista Community Church in Dublin, Ohio about six years ago. We are in the same stage of life as them with little ones at home, and three out of the four of us […]

Spring had a different meaning this year. My spring mini sessions were planned during a season of hope and longing for normalcy as the COVID-19 restrictions began to lift. For most, this was the first family portrait session since 2019. What a joy it was to capture beautiful memories after such a challenging year! Inniswood […]
