I got the call at 3:30am to come to this baby’s birth. Believe it or not, I love being called in the middle of the night to come attend a birth, because I just get up and go. I got up and drove for an hour on the still dark highways to the hospital, and I made it just in time to capture this baby girl being born. Dad quietly helped mom through her contractions, and they had a lovely connection. It was a great birth to be a part of right after coming off my maternity leave with Madeleine. Congratulations to the B family on the birth of your beautiful daughter!

This little one was 18 months old at the time of her baby session. It was a hot and humid summer day, and she LOVED to run! This little girl was super cute, and she really wanted to splash in the fountain and run around at the park. Thank you to the F family. It was lovely to meet you and your baby girl!

Dayton Ohio Newborn Photographer | My Madeleine

By | Newborns | No Comments

We welcomed our fourth baby, Madeleine Sophie, on May 21st. She was born in a hospital water birth, and we have all been smitten with her! Here are some of her newborn images in the studio. Of course it’s more difficult taking pictures of your own baby, especially right after giving birth, but my sister came over to help, and Madeleine was super sleepy that day. I’m so happy that I finally had a baby with a ton of HAIR! Isn’t she the best?!

Here’s a picture of my other three kiddos meeting her for the first time in the hospital on her birthday. Can you tell they LOVE her? 🙂


Claire is Two | Columbus Baby Photographer

By | Babies, Personal | One Comment

My Claire-bear is two years old! I didn’t get around to taking these pictures until she was a few months past her second birthday, but here they are. She is going through the “I can do it myself!” stage right now, so when I tried to put this little antique romper on her, she definitely ripped the back seam open trying to put it on all by herself. This little romper is something I bought over a year ago with the idea that I would take her pictures in it when it fit her. It hangs on the wall of my studio in a shadowbox frame, and I’m glad that I was able to use it for this session.

What else can I say about Claire? She’s The Best. I call her the heart of our family. She makes us all laugh, and we are all so in love with her. Right now I’m expecting her little sister (due in less than two months), and Claire sometimes points to my belly and says “I want to hold her.” She asks for cuddles when she gets up in the morning. She wants to “hug-kiss” all the time. She is so very affectionate and happy, and we can’t believe we got so blessed with her!

Here are some of my favorite images of her joyful face.

And last but not least, a progression of Claire from newborn, 1 year, and 2 years old… I can’t believe how much she has grown!

This baby girl was so peaceful during her newborn session. She didn’t make a peep, and she was so pretty in pink. She even smiled a little bit when I put her with her big brother. Speaking of her big brother, check out his newborn session from almost 4 years ago and see how much these two look alike as newborns!

Congratulations to the C family on your newest addition. She is beautiful!
