Water splashes and plane rides: a first year at home

columbus ohio newborn photographerOh…  I adore these guys.  That mama right there?  We’ve got some history.  Good pals since middle school.  I call her Rad (my kids call her “Aunt Rad”), and she calls me Vic – nicknames that we’ve had since middle school – made from our last names (maiden) because we share the same first name.  Seeing her marry the man she loves a few years back, and then watching them start this beautiful family of theirs… goodness.  These amazing moments in their lives have been highlights of my life as well.  I am so very happy to have shared in this first year with them.

Little man was born during a blizzard.  Like a full-on, cars-piling-up-on-the-side-of-the-road blizzard.  And just as content and happy as can be.  I was honored to be able to visit them at the hospital.   columbus ohio newborn photographer Then their newborn session was at home, like all their sessions were.  He was born just before Christmas, so they couldn’t help dressing him up as the cutest elf EVER.columbus ohio newborn photographer columbus ohio newborn photographer And the faces this kid makes.  They are awesome.  Since he was a newborn!columbus ohio newborn photographer columbus ohio newborn photographer columbus ohio newborn photographer columbus ohio newborn photographer columbus ohio newborn photographer columbus ohio newborn photographer His sitting up session was in the summer, and we were so happy to include their gentle, sweet dog.  columbus ohio baby photographer And.  We got to play in the water.  columbus ohio baby photographer columbus ohio baby photographer columbus ohio baby photographer columbus ohio baby photographer columbus ohio baby photographer columbus ohio baby photographerThe love!!!columbus ohio baby photographercolumbus ohio baby photographerIf you have hair and have ever been around a baby, you can relate to this next one.columbus ohio baby photographer columbus ohio baby photographer

Little man loves to sit on this bench and watch the cars go by.  This is his “CAR!” face.  columbus ohio baby photographer columbus ohio baby photographer columbus ohio baby photographer By this last session, he really had some big personality going.  He’s had plenty of great faces (since birth, really!), but at this last one, I got to see his soft side, his wild side, his laugh, his dimples, his angry face, and so much more.  I love this kid.columbus ohio baby photographer columbus ohio baby photographer columbus ohio baby photographer columbus ohio baby photographer columbus ohio baby photographer columbus ohio baby photographer columbus ohio baby photographer columbus ohio baby photographer columbus ohio baby photographer columbus ohio baby photographer columbus ohio baby photographer This next one went something like this (the stairs are just on the other side of that grey wall): “WHY?  Why can’t I plummet down the stairs, Mom?  WHYYYYYY????”columbus ohio baby photographer And then, on his way to Dad, “Do you see this?  This saving-of-my-life she does again and again and again?  WHY can’t a boy just fall down the stairs?”columbus ohio baby photographer

And the snuggle time.  The love that these guys all have for one another is so beautiful.columbus ohio baby photographerRad and Jeremy, thank you.  Thank you for letting me be a part of your amazing year.  I feel truly honored.  I loved watching you become parents and watching this little man of yours blaze through all these stages!  He’s incredible and so loved.  And so are you, friends.

  1. What a thoughtful series of work you’ve created documenting his first year. His parents must so treasure such moments together. You’re a gifted photographer and I wish you all the success you desire. Columbus, Ohio is lucky to have someone like you. Beautiful work! 🙂

    • thank you so much, joe! what a wonderful thing to say! and i love how you say, “i wish you all the success you desire.” that is perfect:) thank you.

  2. Wow! I’m not sure I am still friends with anyone from all the way back in middle school. Very cool that you are and that you’re able to document this for her!

    • right? i always say that my clients either start as clients and become friends or start as friends and become clients (that are still friends of course). this family is in the latter group:) i love them!
