Erney, party of four!! Sweet little Bodhi came a couple weeks early, but that just means Mommy & Daddy got to hold him and love on him more! I had a newborn session with Bodhi when he was 6 days fresh and all he wanted was to be held my mommy… and eat. and cry. But that’s his job!! All in all, Bodhi did great and he looks so sweet and cuddly… well, because he is! I can’t wait to watch this little guy grow up and play baseball like his daddy!!
You are the sunshine that makes my day.
Graduating from high school is the end of an era, but it is also the beginning of a new adventure in life. It is a time when you truly discover who you are, what you want to be, and where you want to go. Great things lay ahead for this amazing young lady! I have watched her grow up from toddler-hood with an beautiful spirit and soul.
Congratulations to you Taylor for all your hard work and to all the great accomplishments you will achieve! Your family is so proud of the wonderful young woman you have become, and all the amazing things that are to be. Go forth and rock it, girl!!
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.”
-Henry David Thoreau
Graduating high school is a major milestone in a young person’s life. It’s closing a chapter on part of your life as a child, and starting a new one as an adult. You work hard for your grades, and your parents help to guide you to become a responsible adult and to make good choices. In this next phase in life, you get to choose and create your life path – it’s a pretty big deal!
Levi is a great young man! He’s smart and has a great sense of humor; he loves his Carolina Panthers and the outdoors. There are amazing things in store for him in the future! And as for mom and dad… their little boy has become a man. It’s bitter sweet, but they have done a WONDERFUL job raising such a great kid!
We ended up doing a double session over two days for Levi to hit up three awesome locations… I think this was more for mom to have as many keepsake images of her ‘baby boy’ all grown up. The locations were amazing, especially the farm that holds dear memories for their family as a whole. I had a great time with Levi capturing such beautiful images!
There are two gifts we should give our children; one is roots, and the other is wings.

I normally am not the subject matter in my blog posts and usually only post the occasional selfie on my Facebook page, but I went a little crazy taking baby bump photos this week and I REALLY like how they turned out… probably because I’m actually wearing makeup and am not wearing leggings… haha! I still have my official maternity session coming up in June (no, not selfies) so I will have a pretty good bank of images captured through my pregnancy journey… I swear I’m not conceded!!!
You are our greatest adventure… our little pistol princess!

This is a follow up to the maternity session with Jen & Charlie… now they are a family of 3!!… well, four if you count their fur-st baby Gina!
Little Ollie was born in December and is now a whopping 3 months old! I got to catch up with this cute little family and captured bath time, which Ollie absolutely loves. He was kicking, splashing mom & dad, and having all the fun he could have. He is an adorable little man in the making! And his big fur-sister Gina is adjusting quite well to the family addition!
The love of a family is life’s greatest blessing…

I had a vision for a session, like sugar plum fairies dancing in my head… but in a barren, frosty wasteland wearing fur wraps and feathered crowns. These lovely ladies helped me to execute my vision in April, with trees and foliage starting to bud and the temps rising… and my poor models sweating in the wraps! Thank you so much to the amazing Brittany and Taylor for being such great sports and great models!
I had a lot of fun prepping for the session itself, making the wraps and crowns (I’m kinda stoked about the crowns, I’m not gonna lie… LOL), and we had fun as I styled their hair and did their makeups. I love doing makeup, and I’m no professional by any means, and I think they looked just amazing when it was all said and done!
I really like doing styled sessions, so I hope there are some quirky and adventurous people out there that want to book a not-so-standard portrait session… it’s great and so fun to do something different and out of the norm!!

About a month ago Erin Burke Studios held Boho styled portrait sessions and partnered with Jessica Bowersock, licensed esthetician and owner of Skin Solutions by Jess. We had a great time working with these lovely ladies… well it wasn’t really like work at all! A little makeup, a couple of accessories, and these girls rocked their sessions #likeaboss!!
The Bergstresser Covered Bridge in Canal Winchester, Ohio is the last remaining covered bridge in Franklin County. It is tucked away in a neighborhood and is only open to foot/bicycle traffic. I just love this location – covered bridges are so scarce anymore but are absolutely amazing!
I am looking forward to another Boho event later this month with Jessica – for more details on special events, click here.

Meet Amiee. She is one rad, bad-ass chick. You meet her and you want to hug her, which makes her rad. She’s also a power-lifter, hence the bad-assery. Her heart is huge and her sarcasm game is strong; she is fiercely loyal and a ball of energy.
For Amiee’s birthday this year, we captured her amazing spirit and energy… and ate cake! We did the dual session to capture her beautiful self and one to give herself an icing facial, a.k.a an adult cake smash! LOL
One of Amiee’s favorite bands is Incubus, and the chorus of “Stellar”couldn’t ring more true about her…. you leave feeling better every time you are around her.
How do you do it? You make me feel like I do
How do you do it? It’s better than I ever knew, yea
How do you do it? You make me feel like I do
happy birthday, girl //

I took a little industrial hike through Columbus… ok, not so much a hike but a Sunday drive around town. I meandered through downtown, German Village and South Columbus and found these gems! The first location was a construction site which revealed some awesome old signage! Next was an old school in Marion Village – Barrett School – it was pretty much a ghost town. The last spot is a seemingly rundown warehouse on High St – it’s an actively used property because there is a business (semi’s and such) there but every time I drive past it, it looks abandoned and I just LOVE it!! (I’m weird LOL)
These images just seemed more intriguing when I removed the color – black and white is just more fitting and less distracting with all the texture and lines. I hope you enjoy!

This session was actually from the end of fall, but I did changed up my editing style, and the end result… I’m in love with!! Brittany is a friend of mine and she pretty much let me do what ever I wanted with her! LOL We did a few standard portrait shots inside and outdoors, then came the ‘little black dress’ and the gypsy headgear, and out came the little miss’s attitude…. and her eyes. #fierce
You are a diamond, darling. They can’t break you.
Photographers will go to the ends of the Earth to get “the shot”; they will position themselves in the most awkward and uncomfortable poses to get the right angle; they go waist-deep in the wet and mucky-muck for that unique perspective.
Check out the 500px ISO article by DL Cade 21 Photographers Doing Whatever It Takes to Get the Perfect Shot!! Truly inspiring, breathtaking… and a few moments of vertigo with the aerial shots LOL
I hope you enjoy!
