The month of October was a busy one for most of us photographers. Sometimes it's hard to balance the day-to-day chores, work life, family time, and just taking time to breathe and relax. One thing is for sure though, keeping your creativity alive is essential, and for me this still involves my camera and making portraits. A good friend of mine, Jocelyn with Inphinite Photography, put together a beautiful styled engagement session with other Columbus vendors, and I was lucky enough to take part. Community over competition is so important to many of us local creatives, and networking is the best way to meet new florists, photographers, stylist, etc.
I think Ohio has officially decided to stay in "winter mode" now that the 60 degree weather is gone, so it was the perfect weekend for a woodsy holiday session! Leigha, Steve, and their sweet energetic pup Sydney joined me in the woods for some family portraits on Saturday morning. I loved photographing them, not only because they are friends of mine, but because this setting was everything and more! I love the semi-bare tall trees, the pine needles on the ground, the tree fort, the cool crisp air, and the privacy of the area. It may have been a bit cold in the morning, but so worth it. Leigha and Steve's happiness and laughter was contagious and made it so easy to photograph them! :)
What's better than a gorgeous fall day?....a gorgeous family! I love every chance I get to photograph the Marburger family! Nothing makes my heart happier than repeat clients and friends. Amie, Chase, Theo, and their pup Mr. Feeny spent a sunset session with me, and the lighting was perfecttttt! I am so thankful that this fall season has been warm and full of sunshine, allowing my late October sessions to still have colorful leaves on the trees!
Meeting new families to photograph is so much fun, especially when they are dressed perfectly coordinated for fall photos and have photogenic twin babies! The Wimmers were a pleasure to spend Saturday morning with and we had so much fun at the Everal Barn, despite the chilly weather. Athena and Blaze, nine month old twins, had the sweetest bond and I loved capturing all their cute little facial expressions!
It's the prettiest time of the year....FALL!! I want to spend everyday outside soaking up all of the colors! One of my close friends, Chelsea, is a stylist and we thought it would be fun to have a little shoot outside in one of the most gorgeous settings....the woods! The best part is, this is all just a step outside of our studio at work, so we took full advantage. It's one thing to look at this scenery everyday, but why not go out and explore around?
ayyyy! The time has come where I finally got to photograph one of my best friends since we were 1 year old, Jaime, and her fiance David! Their engagement shoot was so beautiful at the Jeffrey Mansion in Bexley. Jaime was one of my Maids of Honor in my wedding last month, and I can't wait to stand by her side on her special day next July! We have literally known each other almost our entire lives, and to go through some of life's most exciting moments together is super cool. Jaime and Dave are perfect for each other and I couldn't be happier for them!
