The Zerby Family.

Cute clothes alert!  Cute family alert!

SOOO much fun. Really. Just so full of energy and with the biggest hearts in the world. I love them!
Jack, Jill, Bob, Ruby and Sydney.  Perfect pretty family!
Loving little Ruby.  Doesn’t she just steal your heart!
Nothing like a Momma’s love.  
Bob and Jill did this thing with their arms all on their own.  I love it.  The girls on one side and the boys on the other.  
LOVE!  Fave from the day.

Jill owns a salon if anyone wants a makeover. zSalon is da bomb diggity!

Helen Noltemeyer - Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful photo session of my son and his family. These pictures are outstanding. You have really captured their spirit.

Tasha Braniff - Love their outfits! They did a great job on those.
That last image is my fav!! :)

1, 2, 3, 4 …our table numbers are NOT a bore!

Aaron and Britt.  Getting married real soon.  A creative couple to say the least!

1, 2, 3, 4…our table numbers are NOT a bore.

They wanted something different and fun for their reception table centerpieces.  So what are they going to do?  Frame the numbers…you know, table 1, table 2, table 3…with fun FABULOUS photos of them holding each number. FREAKING AWESOME!

Oh, I forgot to mention.  They are going to have a HUGE wedding with…get this…

…43 tables!  Now it’s time to get creative!

I think we were successful.  The guests are going to have a ball looking at these.  So much more fun and personable than just a piece of paper with the table number on it, eh?!

These photo numbers would be fun to use for other things, too…like their address, wedding date, other important dates.  The ideas are endless.

And I just had to share their save the date Christmas card.  Inside is a magnet with a photo from their engagement session.  Love it!

The day after we did this BLAST of a shoot, Aaron stopped by with a special prezzie for me.  Um, hello.  I told you they are AWESOME!  A whole bag full of props to load up my foto booth with FUN.  How thoughtful!  Thank you, Aaron and Britt.  You guys seriously rock my socks!

Little Lady Love Bug. Columbus Newborn Photography

Bentley Addison Walker.  Newborn.

Born at 8:21 AM on March 28th, 2012.  (A great day…my Mommy’s birthday too!)

She was a bit smaller than her big bubs, weighing in at 7 pounds, 5 ounces.  Mommy and Daddy didn’t know the gender.  What a pleasant surprise.  One boy and one girl.  Just a perfect little family!

It’s a girl! Introducing BENTLEY!!!

Look at this little lady love bug!  She’s posing on the same sock monkey her brother did when he was just a wee one.  Sock monkey’s are something special to this family as Mommy and grandma had these plush toys when they were little.

And here’s Blaze.  The BIG brother.  Although I’m sure he is such a proud big brother, he is a little frightened of his itty bitty sister and has never been this close to her.  A little trickery and some hidden gold fish next to Bentley’s head…worked like a charm.
Blaze on the left.  Bentley on the right.  Adorbs.

Some cell phone photos of me snuggling with this little lady bug. (Thanks Justin) Love her so much!

Baby Evie. Columbus Newborn Photography

Evelyn Rose. Newborn.

Born March 21, 2012 at 8:18 AM.

7 pounds, 10 ounces, 21 inches.

Evie is the sweetest little girl with seriously the PRETTIEST skin I’ve EVER seen on a newbie. I was sooo smitten, I didn’t want to let go of her when our session was over.

You may remember her big sister, Anabelle. I’ve photographed her milestones and family photos for years. And now, she proudly introduced me to her adorable baby sister.

Baby Evie.
Newborn session = daddy’s much needed break and perfect time to nap!
Evie on the left.  Anabelle on the right.  Identical!
I’m just so sure they will be the best of friends!
Thank you for your help, Light Girl.  You are the BEST swaddler EVER.  

Graham’s Birth Story

Tasha, a dear friend and photography buddy of mine, asked me to photograph the birth of her son. What an extreme honor! It was so very special to be asked to document such a momentous occasion for the Braniff family.

Graham Joshua Braniff. Born March 27th, 2012 at 7:58 AM.  A very special day for some very special people.  A day I will remember forever.

Watch the beautiful video slideshow HERE.

Grandma made Zoe a book about becoming a big sister.  She read it to her as little Graham was being born.  So precious!

Tash had a scheduled c-section as little guy was breech.
So daddy helped photograph his son taking his first breaths.  
Zoe is such a proud big sister.
And proud friend!

Tasha, thank you for letting me be there on such an intimate important day. Graham will always hold a special place in my heart. It’s hard to believe we used to be neighbors when we were just weeee wittle girls and now we are bringing were wittle babies into the world, isn’t it?! Big hugs!

Tasha Braniff - NO Idea how I missed this before!!
LOVE it :)
You will always hold a special place in our heart for being there and documenting it for us. We love you for that, and cannot thank you enough!
