Say hello to six month-old baby Jameson!
Check out that hair!
I don't think its possible for me to go one session without capturing some baby piggies.
Sometimes you need to just let it all out. Look at that baby tummy sticking out. I can barely handle it!
Even in between wardrobe changes Mr. J managed to give me all kinds of eye contact. He brought his A game!
He did a little flexing and push-ups for his mama. He couldn't take his eyes off her!
One of my favorites below. Such a sweet little ham.
Are you surprised to see more toesie photos at this point? I'd hope not. Haha!
Jameson's mama looked so stunning and effortless. Mommy and baby photos are one of my favorite things ever. He was pretty tuckered out at this point so she started singing lullabies to him.
Those eyes. <3
This white bedding setup has become my absolute favorite. You can really let yourself relax and just "be" with your loved ones in my studio. No shoes, no problem.
Gah, the baby rolls!
I'm now scheduling a limited number of milestone and baby mini sessions in my studio per month. I would love to chat with you about booking a session for your little ones. Email me at email@example.com to book your session!
Ethan's Columbus Newborn Photo Session
Columbus Newborn Photographer
Ethan’s mom contacted me to schedule her first child’s newborn session. She loved the idea of choosing someone who offered a natural approach to newborn photography. We scheduled her session with a tentative date. I always let clients know their date is tentative in case their due date changes. Which we all know happens quite often. If your due date changes by more than 4-5 days I usually alter the session date to make sure your baby is between 7-14 days old by their session.
Columbus Family Photography Summer Session
The S Family at Scioto Grove Metro Park in Grove City, Ohio
Columbus Ohio Newborn Photography Studio | Baby Oliver’s Studio Session
Stephanie contacted me through my Facebook business page hoping to schedule a full newborn session in my Grove City newborn studio. Her baby boy was already born and hoped to snag a last minute opening. Although I do suggest you schedule your session before your baby is born, I try my hardest to schedule in last minute sessions. It makes things so much easier for you to schedule and plan your session before your baby is born so you can mark it off as done on your mental check list. You also don’t need to sit and research to find the best photographer after your baby is born and living on 3 hours of sleep.
Once Stephanie was all booked we started planning her session! She had a boy named Oliver with the most gorgeous head of hair. We discussed any of her requests to which she shared she wanted some nice family photos, a great sibling shot and timeless newborn photos of her baby boy. She was nervous that her oldest wouldn’t cooperate for photos. I let her know I would do my very best to make sure we captured some photos of them together. My sibling photos are pretty natural and very safe. I always keep a parent just off to the side, out of camera, to give a helping hand to the kiddos.

8 Resources for New and Expecting Parents in Columbus Ohio | Best Newborn Photographer in Columbus | Oliver’s Studio Session
As a mother to an almost two-year-old, I remember what it felt like trying to find the best, local resources for new parents. Even before my daughter was born I was looking all over the internet at OB doctors, baby boutiques and more! Now that I’m a mom and also a newborn photographer, I often talk with my clients during their session about my favorite businesses that cater to new parents! I thought it would be an awesome idea to have it all written down so new and expecting moms and dads can find the best resources within Central Ohio.
Central Ohio Newborn Photographer | Best Newborn Photographer in Columbus | Oliver’s Studio Session
My husband works with Sarah (Mom) and has known her family for over 15 years. I photographed their engagement photos in the early stages of my career. It has been such a joy watching their family grow! I documented maternity portraits for them this spring when we got to chatting about newborn photos. Whether it be financial reasons or “Mom Brain”, some moms don’t even think to schedule newborn photos. To them, it’s too much work to find a photographer and get everyone ready for a photo shoot. I was so glad that they decided to schedule newborn photos! I helped them along the way from planning outfits, talking about their ideas and having a cozy studio for them to hang out in while I captured their tiny baby boy.
Big brother, Declan, did such a great job listening to me! He also helped himself to my basket of studio snacks! Sometimes parents are nervous whether their kiddos will listen during a session, especially when they are inside a studio space and not outdoors. I often tell parents that kiddos seem to listen better when I ask them to do something verses when Mom or Dad asks them. I also let them know how great they are doing during the entire process! Once family and sibling shots were complete, Declan got to rest. And once I began baby Oliver’s portraits, Dad took big brother from my studio so I could have a quiet space to work. Big kids are usually antsy after their photos are complete and they might be hungry, so I always ask a spouse to take any siblings for lunch or to go play.
Oliver loved, LOVED his milk. So we took a few breastfeeding breaks for him to get filled up and happy. Mom, Sarah, had a few requests that I happily obliged because she is MY client and I always do my best to make sure you walk away from your session 100% happy. Sarah received her gallery of beautiful images today, 6 days ahead of schedule, and couldn’t have been more happy! She loved every image and was so thankful I captured all the sweet moments, natural baby poses and her requested shots.
I loved getting the chance to document this family’s second baby boy. I can’t wait to watch him grow up! Here are my favorite images from his Grove City newborn photo session!
