bodhi // newborn

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.

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…

2016 was a huge year for Jen & Charlie: they became first-time homeowners and had a bouncing baby boy, Ollie!!

Their maternity session was super fun – they crafted, they played guitars and sang a song they wrote together! I mean, could they BE any cuter?!?  And I cannot forget to mention big sis Gina… although her furry face doesn’t show it, she’s excited about her new little human!

Congratulations to Jen & Charlie on their adorable little family!

BIG things are happening in the Gulling family!!  Ryan and Heather are welcoming their 4th child this December, and after having 3 WONDERFUL boys, they are being blessed with a sweet baby girl.

And how fitting that the current baby of the family got to share the news that he is finally joining the ranks of ‘Big Brother’ while the older bros got to help announce that they are finally getting a sister!

There can be no better companion than a brother. There can be no better friend than a sister.

lamont’s girls // portrait

Nyny & Ryry are two little girls FULLLL of energy!  They are chatty little busy bodies, bouncing off the walls like they drank a 64oz Big Gulp of Gummy Beary Juice (remember The Gummy Bears? bouncing here and there, and everywhere???)  I got them to settle down when the realized they were going to wear MAKEUP like an adult, albeit a little, but they were so excited for the mascara and shimmery eye shadow.  They transformed into little Divas… and I loved it!

We had lots of fun through the session – we started off light and fun, as they ran end to end on a covered bridge, twirled like little ballerinas, and gave each other piggy-back rides.  Then their soft sisterly sides came out – arms around each other and even sneaking a kiss!  Right next to the bridge were some big leafy bushes, so I had them put on their serious faces – they aced it like pros.  One pose they were adamant about doing (with no objections from me!) was standing back-to-back with their arms crossed.  That is one of my absolute favorites from this session!!

These girls are basically veterans in front of the camera with their poses and facial expressions. I can’t wait to have another session with these high-personality girls!!

With a busy schedule of eating, pooping and napping, little Jonathan managed to squeeze in his newborn portrait session.  At the ripe old age of 10 days old, Jonathan is a seasoned model that knows how to work the camera… I mean, just look at his adorable little face!!  Go ahead, look!

John and Lauren could not have lucked out with a better baby – their bouncing baby boy is truly a bundle of joy!  It’s amazing how much he has changed in just a few short 10 day (check out his Fresh48 session here).  I cannot wait to see how much Jonathan changes as he grows up and becomes his own little person!

A new baby is like the beginning of all things – wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities.  – Eda J. LeShan

The magic that created little Jonathan happened after an Ohio State Buckeye football game last October, and we stopped outside of the stadium for John & Lauren’s maternity session, so it was only fitting to start the session with the football onesie.  His two-a-day practices are still a few years off, but he sure does look good in uniform! LOL

To stay in theme with Ohio State Buckeyes, we wrapped the little guy in a chili pepper red (the closest I could find to scarlett LOL) against the grey & white backdrop, coupled with the most adorable parted do.  Jonathan was all cuddled up, as snug as a bug in a rug… but waaaay cuter!! 🙂

Jonathan’s dad was in the Army for 11 years, and he brought one of his tees and dog tags to the session.  What better (or cuter) way is there to pay homage to his dad’s military career?!  Who knows if he’ll follow is in dad’s footsteps and join the military, or if he’ll be a future Buckeye football player…. or maybe a boxer (did you see his little, tiny, adorable fists in the last photo?? he may be laying down but he’s got good form… and is hinting at being a south-paw!).

While most family activities are captured by the latest cell phone camera technology, with some cool filters and stickers to play with, most likely the images will just be of your kids, not of your whole family (eh-hem, that means you, moms and dads!).

While you think ‘Whew! I dodged the camera bullet – I’m a sweaty mess!’, your kids just see you as mom and dad, and love you just as you are.  These images are not just for you to look at and remember a fun family day, but these are keepsakes for your children to possibly show their kids… so why wouldn’t you want to be in them??  Get over yourself, and get in those pictures too!!

How do you take the stress of enjoying the moment while trying to capture it at the same time??  That’s what I’m here for!!  You might think it’s weird to hire your own paparazzi, you will more than love the moments captured that otherwise could not be, and that you have evidence that your kids are yours and that you were really there too. (lol)

I had the opportunity to follow the Gulling family to the Scioto Mile water fountain park on a hot July day, and let the family play and enjoy themselves while I took on the stress of dodging random kids, the squirting fountains and all the chaos that comes with taking 3 kids to a public play space.  While Ryan was only able to sneak away during his lunch break to meet Heather and the boys for a short while, it a great day for a water park, ice cream and a pizza picnic!

 

family fun //

Austin’s introduction to the water fountain park with the whole family!  For an 18 month old, he sure was skeptical about the water shooting up and he needed to observe the other children’s behavior.  He analyzed the situation on how to approach and engage, but he totally got into it.

lunch time //

While Caleb and Elijah raced to see who could eat their pizza first, Austin just sat back and savored the flavors… and saved some for later…  Okay – time to go back and play now!!

splish’in and a splash’in //

Since no one is actually swimming, we opted out of waiting 30 minutes before returning to the water 😉  It was time to cool down again – the shade we found to eat under didn’t help much with the heat.  This time, all the boys were ready to get wet (i.e. sprayed in the face).

all good things must come to an end //

With the boys wore out from playing in the sun, it was time to wrap up our day together.  Before heading home for a snack and some well-earned naps, it was time for them to head to the library to get books for summer reading.  These boys definitely had fun in the hot, humid Ohio sun, and, best of all, Heather got to enjoy time with her boys without worrying about getting pictures and missing moments, or dropping her phone in the giant puddle we were in, and Ryan gets to see how much fun they had while he was at work (drying off after getting some major splashes from random kids LOL).
