Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Senior Photographer || KCCC 2020: Taylyn

You’d never know it, but when Taylyn arrived to her session, her words were ‘I’m just here.’ and she was unsure of what her senior portrait experience was going to be. About 15 minutes into the session, Taylyn was giggling and started to show her true self. After a few more minutes, I asked Taylyn to ‘freestyle’ it for a minute and that’s when I called her a liar. (In the best way!) She was not just there. She was KILLING the poses and she was starting to enjoy what I wanted her and every human being who steps in front of my camera to experience: A moment where they can be their truest self.

By the end of the session, Taylyn had been goofy, sarcastic, laughed hard and loud…. She flipped her hair and walked with confidence and sass. She didn’t water herself down or guard herself. I think what was more enjoyable than watching Taylyn be herself was watching her mother literally GLOW with a huge smile on her face because her daughter was having a good time. That was the best!

I get to hang out with Taylyn again in a few months and I can’t wait to catch up with her on life and meet her cow! Until then, we have these images to love on.

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Photographer || OSU: Krissy + Sara's BFF Session

Krissy and Sara met at OSU. Being through milestones, birthdays, break ups, hard times, and the best of times… it was time to celebrate their friendship with a session. We included all the things from sunglasses to selfies, and even the iconic Buckeye donuts!

I loved this session. It was very natural and I even felt a little out of place at times because Krissy and Sara were so themselves and that’s everything that I wanted for these images. I just wanted to capture them together without any staging. I wanted the silliness, laughs, and happiness that is everything that their friendship is.

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Newborn Photographer || Little Gavin

I can not believe the journey I’ve taken with Gavin’s parents. We had a great time talking about our sessions together. Gavin’s parents hired me when I didn’t think I was ever going to be a good photographer. They contacted me and asked me to travel to Columbus to do a session semi-surrounding Jeni’s ice cream. I thought ‘Wow, they think I can handle this? Can I handle this?! Ok, I need to just NAIL this.’ So as time went on, I photographed their wedding and now their newborn son! AHH Such an emotional moment!

Gavin was the BEST little guy. I wanna just call this session ‘little boy blue’ because of all the blue tones, patterns and textures. I just love this so much. I took a risk and did something I usually NEVER do and I literally pulled EVERY mid to dark blue and tried to incorporate it. Very mono toned and I don’t regret it.
Gavin slept so well for his session but had so many facial expressions while he slept! He’s gonna have a fun personality!

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Wedding Photographer || Irongate Equestrian Center: Alex + Paige

Alex and Paige are so sweet both individually and together. Their wedding day was not only their marriage, but the joining of a family with little William included. Jon and I loved getting to watch this couple enjoy their day. Their friends and family showered them will love and smiles. It was incredible to watch! If you don’t know them, you need to know their love for cats which just perfectly enough, Irongate’s resident cat decided to join us during some portraits which was just a bonus to a great day!

My favorite image out of all of these is when little William walked into my shot, not knowing what he was going to see happening in the stall. William quickly shielded his eyes, giving me the perfect shot and a good laugh!

Here are some people who helped make their day possible:

Josh Staley Productions - Cameron

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!
