My husband and I have been close friends with Kevin & Lisa for a 20 years and we will easily remain friends for another 20. They have been there with us for all the fun stuff and have supported us through all the horrible stuff. So I hopped on the chance to photograph them and their three beautiful children, Lydia, Claire, and Russell.
We found a little hidden gem in Gahanna called Gahanna Woods for the location of our photo shoot. It was the perfect place to play in the woods with few other people around. Most of the paths were grass lined so the kids were able to kick off their shoes and play barefoot. At the end of my photo sessions with families everyone (especially Dad) are so surprised at how effortless and fun the whole process is. Save for a couple shots where I have everyone look at the camera I really just want you to snuggle, play, and just be with your children.
It is truly a passion of mine to photograph families with young children. I especially love the challenge of getting authentic portraits of children who don't want to be photographed. Portraits that their parents will love not only because they showed how they looked at a certain point in time but a part of who they were in their development. Enjoy!
