Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Senior Photographer || Mount Vernon 2020: Kimberly

The third and youngest of the Trapp ladies have stepped in front of my camera. It’s not Kimberly’s turn to celebrate her senior year. She has worked tirelessly and committed tons of her time to soccer. I really loved getting to know her and listen to all the things she’s looking forward to in the coming year and beyond.

I doesn’t seem like three years since Stephen and Becky’s wedding day…. I recently got to do a session with them and I was so happy to hear how the last few years have treated them.

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Senior Photographer || Centerburg 2019: Andrea

One of my favorite things about senior photography is getting to understand each senior, then to cater the photography around the senior to properly reflect them and a person. Andrea wasn’t super excited about getting her senior portraits done, at first. But surely, making jokes about myself had her cracking smiles and enjoying her session. Sorry Andrea, you lost but in the best way possible <3 I loved getting to meet Andrea and her family, learning about what she is looking forward to in her future as she soon graduates and starts her new journey in college!

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!

Cynthia is such a sweet, kind person! Did you know this girl GOLFS?! I loved learning that about her and her plans for after school. I think that she is going to be such a positive force, wherever she goes!

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Family Photographer || Braxton is ONE!

Little Braxton was full of energy and loved clapping away during his first birthday session! I love how his mom wanted a very simple set to celebrate! It really allows all of Braxton’s little features to be documented and looked back on!

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Maternity + Newborn Photographer || Courtney + Greg

I’ve been eager for these two to have babies since their engagement session! Years ago, I started documenting their journey and it’s all lead to here. I can’t believe soon, their son will be born! We know he’ll have blue eyes for DAYYYS!

Courtney is donned in our new Tiffany blue gown that is provided in our client closet! It will be named after here as she’s the first to wear it! :)

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

Guess who’s back?! The Galco family! It’s been a while since their wedding but we made some time to update their family portraits. They are such a precious family. Their little one was LOVING posing for the camera and being all silly. I’m so happy the sun was shining for this session. We had rescheduled several times because EVERY time we set a date last year, there was a severe storm. But it finally happened and I think these really showcase their love for each other.

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 Newborn Photographer || Mister Jonathan

This little guy has been LONG awaited by his parents and their family! He has been named after his grandpas! (I love that!)

Many of little Jonathan’s images featured sentimental items. A hat and shoes from his grandpas, blankets from family members and a oneie that holds a quote that his parents fully believe, Jonathan was ‘worth the wait’!

I’ve known this couple since photographing their wedding years ago and this little miracle is truly a dream come true! <3

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 Newborn Photographer || Baby Boy Macoy

Ohhh this little man was a hoot! He was always fake sleeping on me. One minute, he acted like he was out and then I look down at him and I see his little eyes wide open looking at me. It was funny! His parents are so in love with this guy! I loved getting to watch them love on him and talk about his already growing personality!

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

In 2015, I first met Annie’s parents. Annie was just a thought, a dream ‘down the road’ when we were photographing their engagement portraits and then their wedding day. I wish I could explain the feeling I felt when I was posing Kelli and Casey with their daughter. It’s like a proud, fulfilling feeling mixed with so much joy that they get to begin this experience of parenthood!

Annie is such a sweet little baby. Although she looks like a good mix of both mom and dad, I can tell you that the image of her smiling (below) makes her look SO much like her mama!

Kelli had one special request for her daughter’s portraits. Kelli wanted Annie to be in some Cincinnati Bearcat’s gear to represent the tradition between herself and her father of attending Bearcat games together that will now also include Annie! I just love an adore traditions and how that was represented in this shoot!

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.

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Senior Photographer || Highland 2019: Isaiah

Isaiah really surprised me when he showed up to the studio. He immediately introduced himself and shook my hand. This typically isn’t the norm. Seniors sometimes arrive to sessions nervous and unsure of what a session entails so the parent is typically the one doing most of the talking at first. This was not the case and I was thrilled that Isaiah was so excited for his session.

Isaiah’s outfits are incredible. Believe me when I chuckled a bit at the fanny pack. Heads up: Their making a comeback! During Isaiah’s session, he, his dad, and I spoke about life, college, and sports. Isaiah is passionate about football and lifting. I really enjoyed Isaiah’s energy and personality that I think shines through in his images. I am so happy I got to meet him and his father. They are really great people!

Mount Vernon Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Family Photographer || Emmett's First Birthday Portraits

The minute this sweet little boy walked through the door he was already giggling and smiling at me! He was SUCH a happy baby just laughing and in such good spirits. His personality was infectious and my face literally hurt from smiling and laughing so much after his session. He is just such a handsome little thing!

Thank you so much Keara and Brett for allowing me to enjoy the time I got to spend with you all and photograph you guys to celebrate Emmett turning one! <3
