I absolutely love when friends from out of town come back to Columbus to visit and book a session while they are here!!  That was the case for my friend Chelsea, her husband Matthew, and their PRECIOUS daughter Aubrey!  I was so excited when Chelsea had mentioned she wanted a family session, obviously because it was going to be fun to see her after so long, but especially since I was sooo excited to meet her adorable 9-month old baby girl!  The morning didn't start off how we expected though, as the location we had chosen was shut down due to a marathon...but luckily there was another great park to shoot at not too far away in Hilliard.  After that, it was smooth sailing and I was beyond impressed at how well Aubrey did for the whole hour! Most babies get super fussy after about twenty minutes in front of the camera but Aubrey was a gem!

Something that still makes me laugh about this session was a comment Chelsea had made (keep in mind they live in Florida now so this will make sense)....as we were walking close to a lake for some photos, she said, "For a second I was worried there were going to be alligators by this lake, then I remembered we're in Ohio."  LOL, something none of us here in Columbus would ever even think to say since we aren't surrounded by gators and crocs! ;)

Anyways, hope everyone is having a fantastic Thursday.  Enjoy some of my favorite photos of the Derby family!
