Baby Bump {Cincinnati Maternity Photographer}

What a fun night! These two are just adorable and mom to be has the cutest little baby bump. You would never know that she is due in just 3 weeks. We weren’t sure if we were going to be able to get this session in, but the rain held off. I can’t wait to meet your little girl in a few weeks.

I love walking into homes that from the moment I step into their home I sense their love. Their love for one another, their love for today, their love for each other, and their love for the precious miracle they will meet in a few months. Thank you for inviting me into your home to capture your final weeks as a family of 3, I can’t wait to meet your little one in May.

I love this..

Already one? {Mason Child Photographer}

Miss Claire is certainly a special little girl to me.. she is my God Daughter and her mommy is one of my best friends. So when given the opportunity to take her one year old pictures.. of course I was thrilled! I just can’t believe she is already a year old. She had a blast and I most certainly did as well. Hugs to you sweet baby girl.. luv ya!:)

Mine {Cincinnati Family Photographer}

several weeks without a camera, I was having some problems. BUT FINALLY my new camera arrived and I shipped my old one off to its new happy owner.. and lucky me we actually had a few really nice days to go outside with it. Jacob is now 4 and just sweet as always. He is certainly my sensitive one. Bella is going to be two in a few short weeks and I seriously just can not believe it. She is such a little spit fire, but at the same time loves sitting and reading with her mommy and sneaking into bed with me for cuddles. Anyway.. here are a few recent pics.. hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

This first one.. our way to the park.. I just love this one!:)(oh and the extra kid is our very sweet neighbor Isabelle.. my kids adore her!)

Jacob ran the Shamrock shuffle this weekend. I was so proud of him.. and he was so proud of himself as well!:)

Trip and Family {Cincinnati Newborn Photographer}

Back in September I photographed this adorable family. Lucky for me .. I got to photograph them again to welcome the newest member of their family, Trip. This family is seriously gorgeous and they certainly make my job very easy. This is going to be a big blog share because, well.. this family is just too cute not to.:)

While mom was feeding Trip, the girls and I had some fun
