Baby Lucy | Newborn Photography | Columbus, Oh.

Earlier this week I had the privilege of taking photos of little Lucy. She’s so tiny! She was 6 lbs. 9 oz. when she was born and weighed less than 6 when she left the hospital a few days later!

Lucy’s mother and I know each other from church and some of our mutual friends went in to give her a newborn photo session as her shower gift. Can I just say, when I have kids, I hope someone does the same for me? *hint hint*

Such tiny fingers and toes!

Ella is Lucy’s big sister. Do you see the resemblance?

Their mom, Rachel, said Lu slept all day the day before our session, but she was wide awake almost the whole time I was there! We spent a lot of time trying to get her to sleep. Eventually, the soft noise of Rachel’s humming and Ella’s playing knocked her out.

Night, night, Lu!

Know someone who’d love newborn pics? Give me a call at 614-507-1135 or e-mail and we’ll set it up!:)

Amy + Matt | Wedding Reception | Ft. Wayne, Ind.

So, if you know much about me, you may know that my love affair with weddings began when I was planning my own a few years ago. I started reading wedding blogs, and one in particular caught my eye. The girls who blogged there just seemed so REAL. It was like they were your best friends who would always listen to you and would talk about flower arrangements and music and dresses forever and ever and never get bored. All my bridesmaids were out of town for the six months before my wedding, so it seemed like the perfect outlet.

I started to blog and eventually got accepted as a featured blogger only 38 days before my wedding. Little did I know that the fun was just beginning…

To tell the long version of this story would take another post entirely, but I’ll skip ahead to the good part. About 10 months later, I flew to Las Vegas for a wedding photography conference — oh yeah, and a giant meet up with about 50 of the Weddingbee bloggers! We had a blast.

Amy, aka Mrs. Pretzel, was the first of the bloggers I met that trip. We shared a cab on the way from the airport and became fast friends. She is one of the most positive, friendly, fun people you will ever meet!

Those blue chucks are her dancing shoes.:)When we figured out that I live only a few hours away from her “hometown” reception location in Ft. Wayne, I practically begged her to let me shoot it. Just kidding, of course … but if she hadn’t asked before we left Vegas I might have resorted to begging …

Speaking of begging, these were tiny boxes of maple sugar candies, Amy’s favorites when she was growing up in New Hampshire (Ft. Wayne is actually Matt’s hometown). They fit in perfectly as double-duty favors and escort cards at their Thanksgiving-weekend reception.

That’s Matt in the middle with Amy’s Dad. What handsome fellas!

The fully-stocked bar led to some of the most awesome dance floor pictures I’ve ever taken (sorry to brag, but it’s true! Amy and Matt and their guests are wicked dancers!). I’ll shut up now and let the photos do the talking.

Just gotta interject for a second — here they’re playing the shoe game where they have to answer questions like “Who is the better cook?” or “Who is better with money?” For a fun spin, they had guests hand in questions to the DJ beforehand.

The last question? Who is ready to dance?! MEMEMEMEME!

Electric slide, anyone?

Sing us a song; you’re the piano man!

So. Much. Energy. How does she do it?

Ah yes, fueled by love.

Matt’s brother bears an uncanny resemblance to Andy Samberg, so we had to jam out to I’m On a Boat (uncensored version, FYI). He rocked it.

Need more Amy and Matt? Check the slideshow!

I should mention that inquiries and bookings for 2011 are picking up, so if you are interested in a particular date for your wedding (or birth), you should contact me as soon as possible.

Baby Tate | Birth Photography | Worthington, Oh.

The pictures you are about to see were taken on one of the most amazing nights of my life.

I got the call around 6:20 p.m. on Thanksgiving Eve. Corey’s voice was high and strained. It was time.

It was so cool to see all the herbs that the midwife brought to help Stacia with her labor and recovery.

The way Corey helped Stacia through labor was so beautiful. There’s no more supportive husband in the entire world, I’m sure of it (I just pray that Lin is this awesome when it’s my turn, someday!).

Here he comes!

In that second picture above, Corey tried to pull back after the kiss, but Stacia resisted and said “More!” He obliged.

Checking the time of the birth …

Kalista meets her baby brother for the first time.

Welcome, little Tate. You are loved.

P.S. Slideshow here.

P.P.S. I love photographing births. If you think you might like to have your memories captured this way, please contact me —!

Happy Monday!

Just wanted to post a little note letting you know that some pics from Alex and Alex’s engagement session were featured on Landlocked Bride a few days ago.:)

And here’s a little sneak peek at what I’ve been working on lately. Recognize these lovely ladies?

There’s more where that came from, so stick around!

Courtney | Portrait Photography | Tallahassee, Fla.

Courtney, the beautiful bride, celebrated her third wedding anniversary with some bridal portraits.

She and her husband, my in-laws, moved to Florida from Ohio. The heat was oppressive during the week we spent there in September, but it was SO worth it for this scenery!

You make a beautiful bride, Courtney. I’m so happy to have you as my sister, and I wish I could have been there for your wedding day!*


*Courtney and her husband got married two months before Lin and I started dating. It’s so frustrating sometimes that I was just a few months too late to see it in person!
