Last week I had the opportunity to photograph this lovely lady at her home snuggled up with mom and dad. In home newborn sessions hold a special place in my heart. It’s such an honor to be trusted to enter someone’s home and document the way they are caring for the newest member of their family, capturing the chaos, sheer exhaustion, excitement and beauty of this special time in life. Mom and Dad are doing a beautiful job.
It’s been a whirlwind of a summer. I went from fearing I would never photograph families again to having a completely booked summer. I am beyond thankful to the families who have trusted me with their memories, children, and safety. I think times of crisis remind us how fleeting and precious life is, and we want to hold on to these moments as tightly as possible. Here are a few photos from a session I did one lovely morning in June at Jeffrey Mansion.
*****UPDATE: After a month of fundraising I am ending my front steps project. Thank you so much to all who have participated – together we have raised nearly $2000 for the Columbus arts community, well beyond my initial goal of $1000!!***** I’m so excited to announce that SEE Studio Photography will be raising money for Columbus-based artists whose incomes and lives have been negatively affected by COVID-19 by offering “Front Steps” mini photography sessions.

A recap of 2019.
I recently had the opportunity to photograph one of my favorite families just before and immediately after the birth of their third child.

They asked me to visit one morning and capture the raw moments of life with a new little one.
I’ve been dipping my toes into newborn photography lately, and it is a whole other art form. Thankfully I had a lovely, sleepy model to practice on for this in-home session. Happy birth day sweet baby E, welcome to the world!
I couldn’t resist putting my three year old in this amazing flower girl dress the moment it was in my possession. I love her post-nap grumpiness in juxtaposition with the grandeur of the dress. This was a completely candid session, taken on a whim, hence the disorder of her bedroom in the background. She is practicing to be a flower girl in her uncle’s wedding this summer.
