It all started this spring as I was out antiquing as I tend to do often and I came across this old rusted crib. I didn’t even think about it, I just knew I had to get it. Then a few short week’s later, I was shopping at a antique shop in Nevada and I found this brilliant hand made quilt. How could I resist. An so became my latest mini sessions, Lil Darlin’s. I started out in Pickerington on the first night.
Charlie, Warren and Emily loved the bed in the field. They were quick to jump on it and try and get comfy.
Emily is growing into a well spoken, intelligent sweet girl.
Charlie has a smile that lights up the room for sure.
Warren melts your heart.
Charlie, you crack me up. Don’t even loose that passion to see the fun in everything.
I then got to celebrate a special 1 year old, Whitney. She was bright eye’d and full of smiles.
Sometimes I look at these sweet babies I’ve photographed as newborn’s and it blows me away how quickly it’s come up on their first birthday.
Whitney is a tiny lil girl. So petite. You just want to cuddle her. She’s absolutely stolen her family’s hearts.
Whitney was chill and just checking out the nature around her. A cupcake in the park was icing on the cake for her.
On the second night of the Lil Darlin’s Mini Sessions I was in Delaware where I got to meet this family for the first time. They have only just recently moved to Ohio. Jordan and Kacey an their adorable children, Tatum and Callum.
This handsome gent was giving me serious baby fever. Oh my goodness…
These two were so sweet on each other. Tatum didn’t hesitate to give her baby brother hugs and kisses, and Callum welcomed them.
It was great meeting you all. Welcome to Ohio, I hope you make lot’s of great memories here.
Jordan and Kacey’s neighbor’s are some long time clients of mine. Matthew, Shaina and their family, Eliana, Noah and Micah.
Matthew and Shaina seriously make the cutest kids.
Micah wasn’t so sure about all these picture taking stuff….those brow’s.
Noah is a lil heart breaker. He’s quiet and reserved, but he flashes that smile your way and you can’t help but to smile back.
Eliana is cute as a button, full of sass and charm.
I knew as soon as I took this first photo of Noah and Eliana, it was going to be my favorite. It wasn’t actually set up that way, but I shot it just before I had the kid’s change positions. When I got home an was able to see it, it was quickly marked as one of my all time favorite photos I’ve taken in all the year’s I’ve been doing photography. So timeless.
Micah was holding his head up so well for some of his photos. He did really well and no tear’s the whole session.
Next up, Maddie and her sister, Emery. So sweet they are together.
Jenni and her girl’s got a little one on one time without the boy’s for some photos. They had lot’s of fun and kisses and cuddles together.
That’s right Maddie, give her a big wet one!
Emery an those cheeks….don’t you just want to love on her. She’s precious.
In Granville, Kenzie and Kaitlyn came to visit. One of my cat’s was out and about and Kenzie was determined she would find him.
Kaitlyn is a great big sister. She is always helping Kenzie out to try to look at the camera, or taking her by the hand.
These two, they were so cute. They were giving endless kisses to one another, the next one always out doing the last.
Before they left, they had a swing.
Thanks to all the families that came out for the Lil Darlin’s Mini Sessions. I know there were a few that ended up not being able to make it. I have opened it up that if you’d like to book a session with the day bed, just let me know. I have gotten a lot of feed back on it. So it’s not just limited to this series of Mini’s.
