Lyla girl – 6 Months old | Columbus Ohio Baby Photography

This sweet baby. I was lucky enough to be there to photograph her entrance into this world and then again for her newborn session and this perfect little squish just keeps getting cuter!! She’s so cuddly and sweet and has the sweetest little smile. I wanted to keep her for myself. Baby photography seriously makes my heart sing. Especially these sitter sessions, before they can crawl. I love watching their little personalities come out. Baby smiles and giggles are the best! if you look closely in this one, you can see Lyla girl’s first little tooth that just recently broke thru. 

Christie, thank you again for trusting me to capture yet another precious milestone in your lives! it means the world to me. I love you to pieces. xxJBZ

Christmas 2017

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and holiday season. Christmas this year was so fun with Savvy girl. She loved getting to see all the Christmas lights on all our drives home to and from beavercreek. She loved our Christmas tree and putting her ornaments on her advent calendar every morning. She loved getting to see Santa and watching Christmas specials featuring him. She lovedddd opening presents! We had a wonderful time celebrating with both of our families. I stupidly forgot my camera when we had Christmas at my moms so family photos from that night are missing. I’m still kicking myself since we don’t have a recent family photo with everyone together but we definitely enjoyed the time spent together.

Lindsay - OMG I love all of these. They turned out great!!

jenna+sam | Columbus Ohio Wedding Photography

You guys might remember Jenna and Sam from their engagement session that I posted this summer. I had been sooo looking forward to their wedding and it did not disappoint. Everything about this day was amazing. From Jenna’s amaaaaaaazing dress to the super fun huge wedding party to the insane amount of dancing that lasted the entire reception. The way Jenna and Sam love each other is the stuff movies are made of. They are literally constantly laughing with each other. From the moment they saw each other, those smiles barely came off their faces. Even when I asked if they would brave the rain that came down almost immediately after the ceremony. And I know they are patiently awaiting this blog post, so without further ado, here are my faves from their day!oh Jen, you are so gorgeous!
Jenna’s dress fit her like a glove and was absolutely made for her! I couldn’t stop gushing about how much I loved it.they had my most favorite first look ever!
and thisssss little sweetie pie! I just wanted to take her home with me. she is absolutely perfect. You’re married!!!These next three of Jenna’s with two of her br

Jenna + Sam, you guys were made for each other. Thank you so much for trusting me to capture your day, it was truly an honor to be a part of it. I absolutely adore you guys! Have a wonderful first Thanksgiving as a married couple!! xxJBZ

hannah+andy+russell | Columbus Ohio Family Photography

Remember this adorable family!?! Being asked to do their family photography again and again makes my heart soar. Little Russell stole my heart from the minute I met him. We joke that he will marry my Savvy girl and he’ll be my son in law. And by joke, I mean, I totally wish this would really happen. lol I freaking love hannah and Andy as if they were my own siblings (along with the rest of the Ross family, as I’ve said multiple times). Little Russell is an absolute ham for me too, he lovessss the camera. I know that will change as he gets older but for now, I’m loving it. And we had some amazing weather and light for this session, its one of my faves this year!

Check out how adorable this little plane is from his Grampa Jack!
I think this is my fave from our entire time together. I love how it looks like fire behind them, I adore little Russ’s sweet face, hannah looks freaking stunning, ugh, I love it.his little tiny bottom teeth just get me, how cute?! oh fall in Ohio, how I love your colors!AND!! they went public last week- Russ is gonna be a big brother!!! I’m so excited for another Ross baby!!

hannah and Andy-congrats again you guys! I am so so happy for you. I cannot wait to meet and snuggle another of your little peanuts. You guys are totally rocking this parenting thing! I love yous!! xxJBZ
