Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Senior Photographer || Mount Vernon 2019: Corrick

Corrick has DAYS until he is a high school graduate! I’ve known Corrick for a few years now through various family sessions I’ve gotten to do for his family. To see that he is a senior makes me feel like time has passed too quickly but I’m sure for Corrick, it needs to move faster with graduation just in reach!

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Newborn Photographer || Kaitlyn

“Photography is not about cameras, gadgets and gizmos. Photography is about photographers. A camera didn’t make a great picture any more than a typewriter wrote a great novel.”
– Peter Adams

In this day and age, everyone has a camera in reach. We all know that. What isn’t in reach is the creativity, drive, stamina, and patience that come with the job. (And that’s just the short list!) Just like not everyone could be a nurse, not everyone can be a professional portrait photographer. I admit, my job gets hard. Brides and babies alike cry when they are upset and it’s you’re your job to do everything in your power to make it better. Newborn photography is like hot yoga but in that 85 degree room you’re holding a new soul and a $8000 piece of equipment. It’s not that I just hold a camera, but that I keep everyone feeling good and make them look their best in a creative way.

Kaitlyn is apart of a story that highlights one of the most raw and significant parts of my career that will never leave my mind. Kaitlyn is little sister to Harper. Harper is not just a toddler, but a twin. I was at the hospital on the day of her birth. I was bringing food to a pregnant friend of mine and this family asked me to photograph the urgent event at hand: Harper and her twin, Julie born at 23 weeks. Their chance of survival was a very touchy percentage. Julie passed in the arms of her mother and I photographed her fighting for every second of her life. Silently, I felt so much weight of what I had photographed on their birthdays. It’s something I did not share or spoke with many about because it was such a private and intimate moment where I saw their entire family at their most vulnerable. It may have been the most defining moment that held the meaning of my entire career.

Harper spent months in the NICU and is a very happy and loving little girl. Kaitlyn has now joined their clan. Kaitlyn is the rainbow baby that follows her angel sister, Julie. I wanted to represent her as Spring (since that is her birth season!) because she is new, a fresh growth that brings a new chapter. Also, like her mom requested, putting rainbow tones in things. Kaitlyn was a wonderful baby! You’ll see she gave me a smile and loved clinging to her sister, Harper’s, octopus lovey that is regularly used for preemies who find comfort in holding their cords! (Fun fact!) I know her family is going to enjoy her and I am so happy for their new addition.

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Newborn Photographer || Harper Mae

Meet Harper! She was the SWEETEST little soul! She was awake for a few minutes that made for some wonderful shots but then she went to sleep and we had an AMAZING session! Her mama asked for mostly white/cream tones and I was REALLY happy with all the little items I got to dress Harper in!

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Family Photographer || The Kieber Family Is Expecting!

I can not believe the years that have gone by with this family. I remember each session of theirs. From dating, engagement, anniversaries, maternity, newborn and now expecting their second child, it’s just the GREATEST honor. I love these sessions because each time I see them, I get to hear all the new and fun changes in their life! Little DJ has gotten so big!

In a few weeks I will be meeting their son who I know is going to be just as adorable as DJ! I can’t wait to see them all together at their newborn session!

Mount Vernon Ohio / Columbus Ohio Birth + Newborn Photographer || St. Anns: Scarlett

I’ve known Scarlett’s mama for quite a while. Her mom was one of my seniors. I had the privilege of photographing her senior portraits back in my beginning days and photographing more of her and her family’s special moments in their life time. I also go to photograph Courtney’s first pregnancy with her son, Barrett.

Scarlett’s mom messaged me and told me that she was expecting again! This time it was a girl and I was SO beyond thrilled for her. Scarlett’s brother, Barrett, passed away as an infant and it was an absolute devastating time for this family and many of us that know and love them. This joyous news of Scarlett being on the way was everything I wanted for Scarlett’s mom and dad!

I got to visit them today and do some Fresh 48 images for their family and Scarlett to cherish forever! In these image, Scarlett is only hours old and the spitting image of her brother! Her mama also made sure she was dressed in the cutest little onsie that you’ll have to get a good read of at the very end. Scarlett is like a real life baby doll. She is absolute perfection! I know her parents are going to have so much fun with her in these coming days as she grows and shows her personality.

To Scarlett’s mom and dad and their families, I am so honored to get to photograph and meet her. (I also got to do a little shopping for her today too! — It’s a girl, like I WASNT going to go shopping for her, no way I was going to miss the chance at that…. ha!) I loved getting to meet this little one and photograph her first moments of life. Brand new, undeniably loved, and a very amazing future to look forward too!

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Family Photographer || The McIntire Family

I LOVED getting to meet the McIntire family for the first time! What sweet and wonderful people! They had a family session with a cake smash session added on to celebrate their son’s first birthday. We were blessed with a beautiful day to do outdoors family photos and headed back to the studio to do the cake smash, dino style!

I typically don’t allow my children to be at sessions because I want my focus to be completely and totally on my clients. They deserve that. But when we got to the studio, their oldest son wanted to play so my son, Leo, and their son became quick friends while mom, little brother and I were in the studio for the cake smash. We ended the session with the boys begging for more play time together. It ended up being a very fun time for everyone and I am so blessed to have met this family!

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Family Photographer || Mister ONEderful: Hudson

Hudson is back! Do you remember this little man?! Over 2000 people read his miracle birth story last year when I documented his birth (You can read about it here)

Hudson is such a sweet little man. I am so absolutely smitten with his smile and giggles. He was LOVING the cakes that he got to eat on. As you can see, one is for his traditional birthday and the other is celebrating his heart journey. His little fox you see with him in images is his ‘scar buddy’ that shares his same scars and lists Hudson’s diagnosis too. (This little fix is so cool and hudson loves him!)

I am so happy to get to see Hudson thriving and about to head towards his next heart adventure. God has made him a little champion and watching him grow is a testament to God’s strength and love.

Little RC was such a little ham during his session! Oh my goodness, this cutie loved playing in the studio and reading his little blue truck books! I’ve never seen a little one love a certain book so much! His mama thought it would be the perfect theme for his cake smash and first birthday portraits.

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Newborn Photographer || Miss Beatrice's First Portraits

In 2016, I first met Beatrice’s (Bea) parents on a rainy day, their wedding day. Cara and Stephen were the most wonderful people to serve on such a rainy day. Cara was so accepting and easy going about the rain. I really loved working with them then. In my line of work, it only takes 15 minutes to know if you’ll really ‘click’ with your clients. With Cara and Stephen, I was hoping I would see them again. (You can view their wedding here: http://www.envphotographyy.com/blogentries/2016/5/26/mount-vernon-ohio-columbus-ohio-wedding-photographer-the-barn-at-heather-glen-mr-mrs-wilkinson?rq=wilkinson)

Fast forward to months ago, I got an email from Cara. I was overjoyed at her news that she and Stephen were expecting a special gift that they had long waited for! Their little bundle’s gender was going to be revealed on birthday so I eagerly awaited for the email from Cara. (Those emails always make me nervous! I constantly pray that everything goes smoothly!) I got the email sooner than expected that sweet Beatrice Ruth Marie had entered the world and graced the arms of Cara and Stephen, welcoming them to parenthood.

I was so happy to host this little family in my studio. I love when my clients return, especially with more family members than before! haha. Thank you Cara and Stephen for allowing me to have this pleasure of cuddling, soothing and photographing Beatrice for three hours. I can not believe you guys are parents! God is so good! In these images, Beatrice is wearing her late Great Grandmother’s pearls and also coxied up to her mother’s wedding dress and childhood doll in her very first portraits.

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Headshot Portraits || Becca's Styled Headshot Portraits

The most beautiful thing is when people walk unexpectedly into your life and you start to hear them tell their story and get inspired. Becca is one of those people. She walked into the studio with so much confidence, sat right down and was ready for pictures. As we started talking, I learned how she’s a young single mom. She has a really great job and is so happy raising her son. I did not realize how young she was! Not by her looks but because when I was her age, I was immature and felt a mess. This girl has so much elegance and composure! I loved getting to meet her and learn about her. She is amazing!

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Maternity Photographer || The Crawford's Maternity Portraits

Years ago, I had the chance to photograph Jennifer and Matt’s wedding day! I recently got an email from Jennifer explaining that she and Matt were expecting their rainbow baby! I was beyond excited at the news and looked forward to the day of their session.

Because of the winter temps, we did half of their session in studio and the remaining half outside. Jennifer is wearing our Marilu gown in the studio portraits and our white gown with the Promise skirt from our designer friends at Chicaboo! I loved that Jennifer got to use gowns from our client closet to celebrate the upcoming birth of their baby!

I can not wait to see them and meet their son!

Do you remember these three?! Well, Jayden was a newborn just a few months ago but it was time for some updated images. The first year goes by so quickly that those images are important. But although the first half of the session was family portraits, we spent the second half of the session with JUST Jessica and Bryce for some engagement images because they are getting married NEXT YEAR! :) I’m so happy for them!
