Oh the baby cravings started up soon as I saw this wee one. A mere four day’s old during his session at his home. Andrew was a tiny guy with big bright eyes. All sorts of baby cuteness about him.
He was more interested in when his next meal was, but in between I’d get some images.
Andrew’s mom Jennifer wanted a similar photo taken of him as they had done with his big sister a few year’s ago, so she put this cute bow tie on him. He smiled away as he slept. Content.
Ten lil piggies……such long toes.
Andrew was a sweet and tolerable baby, so long as he got his food, all was well in the world. He’s just a laid back kind of dude. Congrats again on the baby!
It’s always a joy to see some of my past bride and groom’s when they enter into parenthood. Ryan and Lauren are expecting their bundle of joy in the next few weeks and are waiting till birth to find out what they are having.
There is a genuine love between these two. They would often loose themselves in the moment at the shoot. They are very cute together and make a great team. This baby is going to have very cool parents indeed. We photographed their wedding nearly four year’s ago in a beautiful garden themed wedding. It was a lot of fun and clever personal touches.
Before the session, there wasn’t any threat of rain. We had a quick shower and it cleared up. But shortly after there was thunder and lighting in the distance over downtown Columbus.
We made our way back up from the pond and within seconds the winds turned fierce and the rain began to pour. It was like a monsoon hit. We were protected under this little canopy from the storm around us. Looking through the building, you couldn’t even see downtown Columbus anymore. The storm clouds covered it entirely.
Finally the storm let up just enough for us to make way to our car’s. And there lie a beautiful rainbow over the city. Perfect ending to a perfect shoot! So great seeing you two again, so excited for your new arrival! Best Wishes Ryan and Lauren!
Justin just started his final first day of school at Newark Catholic. Counting down the days till graduation. He and his family are looking forward to celebrating.
Justin is hopeful to go to Wright State with the plan to study Computer Science.
I met Justin four year’s ago when we moved to our current home and have enjoyed having him and his family as neighbors. We have fun picking on each other, an he throws it right back. It’s hard to believe he’s at that point where things begin to change, leaving home for college. It’ll be a little less fun on this street without him around so much. They are like a part of our extended family, so it’s a little bitter sweet watching him fly the coop.
Justin has a close knit family and they all enjoy each other’s company.
Justin has his close friends that he holds dear and his beloved dog Maggie.
Enjoy the moments of your senior year, it’ll go by in the blink of an eye. Before you know it you will be putting on that cap and gown. Can’t wait to celebrate with you next spring!
Year’s ago, I scribbled down ideas, inspirations, creative outlet’s that I had to put down on paper. I never knew if I would get around to doing any of them, but at least it was a goal. I’d always had the idea of doing a GREASE inspired shoot. It was my favorite childhood movie growing up. My mom had taken me to see the movie several times while it was in theaters. Over the year’s of my career, I’ve been fortunate to work with a lot of great people. I started to pin together my thoughts and got a hold of a few of my mom’s I’ve worked with, and the inspiration became reality. I’d been a nervous wreck about this shoot, worrying it would rain. We planned this out on a date we knew everyone would be in town. I was giddy that it was such a beautiful evening.

Danny and Sandy having a bit of fun with each other. As each one of these kid’s walked up to the shoot, I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face. They all looked so good.
‘Tell Me About It Stud!’
This was such a fun shoot, the kid’s were enjoying themselves and I was caught up in the moment of how fitting each an every single kid did their part. One of the mom’s was kind enough to have songs from the GREASE soundtrack playing as we did the shoot. How fun!
Rizzo an the guys…
Ahh, teenage crushes……
I did a series of shots, an our youngest Greaser didn’t want to miss out on what was going on. Graham was too funny.
I give BIG props to these kids. They did AWESOME. I directed where I wanted them to go, but they did their part of acting. It was neat watching them come together and create these persona’s they were acting.
Who knew Sandy + Kenickie. Cambell and her brother Beckham got a shot together in the stands.
This shoot was held at New Albany High School. As some of them are students there, I wanted to incorporate that into the photos.
And that’s a wrap! You all did such a wonderful job and I am so pleased with the turn out. Each and every one of these kid’s played an important part of this shoot. Job well done to each of you. And I have to give a HUGE thank you to the parents. We started planning this shoot in May. Over the summer we had had many conversations about the shoot. The parents all helped each other and they did an incredible job dressing the kids. I could not have brought this inspiration to life without their help. And I’d like to thank Mr. McPeek for allowing us to use his awesome Hot Rod in the shoot. He was kind enough to drive it over to the school and let us borrow it. The kid’s enjoyed it too! So from the bottom of my heart, THANK ALL OF YOU for helping me these last few months, and for your help at the shoot. You all rock!
Nothing like getting the whole gang together for some family portraits. With family visiting from Tennessee, they wanted to get some updated shots, as well as a new addition to the fam. Davey and Mary Lou have been together for 60 year’s and have this growing legacy before them.
April, Justin, Janet an Joe are our neighbors up the road, so it’s been nice getting to know the extended family these last few year’s.
Sasha and her husband Jonathan an their kids, Dylan, Lana and Evie came up from Tennessee. Lana comes up to stay for the summers and entertains our boy, so it’s always a lil bitter sweet to see her go.
Wayne and Amber
April like’s to keep her family close by and makes the most of their times together.
Justin and Emma having a bit of fun with each other.
Evie looks a lot like her Mama and big sis.
Aww, melt my heart. Through the good and the bad times, Davey and Mary Lou have held on tight to one another. That is the true meaning of love.
Jonathan an his kid’s, he’s got a great family there. I think he knows it!
All I can say is these three are TROUBLE! Always keeping me on my toes. But it’s been nice having them as neighbor’s, we hang out with them a lot, playing games and rotten banter with one another. The good times.
Another summer is coming to a close and Lana an her family have returned home to Tennessee. They always enjoy their get together’s. And they anxiously await the next time they can just be…family.
