Even after all this time, its still a huge honor whenever someone asks me to capture their family photography. I’m always excited when Tanya tells me they wanna get on my books. And its not an easy task with three super busy boys, one of which just finished up his first year at Miami (I did Ryan’s senior photos about a year and a half ago). And let me tell ya, having three brothers of my own, its not always easy to get three teenage boys to cooperate or do what I want them to do.. but these three (4 if you count dad) humored me and did everything I asked of them with a smile on their faces. columbus-oh-family-photography-071columbus-oh-family-photography-049columbus-oh-family-photography-061columbus-oh-family-photography-027columbus-oh-family-photography-039columbus-oh-family-photography-088columbus-oh-family-photography-050I adore this one!!

Christie and Junior are having a sweet baby girl in July who they’ve named Lyla. This baby girl is already so loved, by so many. The minute I found out christie was expecting, I started talking about how her baby and savvy would be friends and started planning all her photo sessions already. I’m so excited to meet their sweet girl!

you guys.. this kid. I’m so obsessed with him. I wanted to sneak him in savvy’s car seat and take him home with me. He is an absolute doll. And he’s at that perfect, magical age where his personality is shining thru and he’s full of smiles and love. I adore his parents too which probably explains why I love Russ so much. He never stopped smiling at me the entire time I was with him. And in turn, my cheeks hurt when I left because I didn’t stop smiling the whole time. And his fuzzy hair! gah, he’s the best. If we have another baby, and its a boy, I want one just like him! columbus-ohio-family-photography-003columbus-ohio-family-photography-046columbus-ohio-family-photography-015columbus-ohio-family-photography-096columbus-ohio-family-photography-023columbus-ohio-family-photography-033columbus-ohio-family-photography-045columbus-ohio-family-photography-049those gummy smiles are my fave! I miss it so much with savvy. her little baby teeth are cute too but once they get teeth they seem so much more grown up! columbus-ohio-family-photography-089columbus-ohio-family-photography-059columbus-ohio-family-photography-066they have the BEST front porch.

Russ, you’re the best, kid. I adore you and so look forward to watching you grow and seeing who you turn into. h+a, you guys are doing such a great job, and you know I adore you too. see you soon. xxJBZ

Mary Ross - Jenny, Your photography skills are AMAZING!!!! Plus, it doesn’t hurt to have an adorable subject either! 😉 You captured little Russell being natural and brought out his happy disposition! Every picture is a “oh, I want that one”!!! You are a very talented lady! ❤️ To the Zink family! Mama Ross ☺️😍😘

You guys, you’re about to see one of the cutest couples ever. I’ve known Lindsay since she was in 6th or 7th grade when I was her cheerleading coach!! So many of my cheerleaders are getting married and having babies and I’m in serious denial about it! I was over the moon excited when I got the email asking about wedding photography from Lindsay. She’s one of the sweetest girls I’ve ever known and what a beautiful bride she’s going to be!! I loved getting to see her and Joe interact, because boy does he light up when he looks at her. columbus-oh-engagement-photography-010columbus-oh-engagement-photography-011columbus-oh-engagement-photography-057I love this image with our city in the background! columbus-oh-engagement-photography-029columbus-oh-engagement-photography-019columbus-oh-engagement-photography-014columbus-oh-engagement-photography-051lovvvvvve!!!!columbus-oh-engagement-photography-015how pretty is Lindsay’s blonde hair?! columbus-oh-engagement-photography-052columbus-oh-engagement-photography-028columbus-oh-engagement-photography-035another fave!!

Andrea+Doug | Columbus, Ohio Engagement Photography

Meet Andrea and Doug! Andrea has been following my blog for a long time waiting for her turn to be on it so I was so excited to get the message that they were engaged and hoping I could do their engagement and wedding photography! What an honor! I’ve actually known Andrea for a number of years, since she was little. Her family lived just around the corner from us, she used to play with my sister and I would babysit her and her little brother. They moved to Indiana and I haven’t seen her in a really long time, but she’s actually exactly like I remember. Sweet and sassy all rolled into one. And these two together, talk about cute! Doug is clearly smitten with her and very excited to get married. I’m really looking forward to their sweet wedding this summer down in Cincinnati.Columbus-OH-engagement-photography002014026034039051080054Ending things with my favorite!!!
