Strawberry Picking at Stokes Berry Farm | Cincinnati Documentary Photography

Stokes Berry Farm

I love being Cincinnati Documentary Photographer! Documenting my own family this year has been so fun! The Barrett’s started a new family tradition and headed out to Stokes Berry Farm. After seeing a post on Facebook from a friend, I knew we had  to go! We made the one hour trip north  first thing in the morning and practically had the place to ourselves. My plan loving son was in all his glory!

I think he ate his weight in delicious berries.He loved running the rows looking for the juiciest berries. Found one!My sweet boy ended up picking 9lbs total of delicious berries!  Plenty for strawberry ice cream, jam, pies, and of course, snacking on the way home!  What is your favorite thing to do with your haul from the berry farm? Share your favorite recipes in the comments! I would love to add them to my collection <3

Sitter Sessions, What Are They? | Cincinnati Baby Photographer

sitter-sessions-cincinnati-baby-photographer

What are sitter sessions?

This is a special time when your little one is learning new skills every day. They may just have discovered their toes, be learning to clap or blowing raspberries. They usually have big gummy smiles and plenty of giggles, sometimes they have 1 or 2 new teeth to show off. There’s also the chubby thighs and gorgeous chunky bottoms beg to be documented.

When should I schedule my sitter session?

The best time to schedule your sitter session with your Cincinnati Baby Photographer is once your baby is sitting unaided and before they can crawl or walk. The best time for these sessions is typically between 6-9 months.

I have a variety of outfits, hairbands, hats, bowls, baskets and blankets to choose from and use, all in my beautiful Norwood Studio. These sessions are short and sweet (about 20-30 minutes) and scheduled first thing in the morning when your baby is the happiest.

New Session Offering | A Day in the Life Documentary Sessions

Cincinnati Documentary Photographer | A Day in the Life Sessions

What are Day in the Life Sessions and why do I need this in my life?!

Easy! Summer is full of exciting adventures, why not have it documented in a beautiful and meaningful way. I have spent the last 18months documenting my family through my 365 project and these images have become some of my favorite images I have of my children. I have been getting a lot of interest for these sessions and am thrilled to be offering them for my clients!

I would love to tag along to your family trip to Kings Island, a day at the pool (hello underwater pictures!), a trip to the strawberry patch such as Stokes Berry Farm, or even just a lazy day at home playing in the backyard, making cookies, and bath time. Whatever it is that you want to remember forever, I want to be there to help you document it. Our children grow up so fast and if you are anything like me you would give anything to freeze that time. Pictures are one we we can do that!

Since these are a brand new offering, I am offering the first 5 people who book a documentary session a 50% discount with the code DOCUMENTUS

The Lights Fest | Cincinnati Family Photography

The Lights Fest

I love summer. Experiencing new things through my children’s eyes is why I enjoy documentary photography so much. Capturing the awe and wonder my children see in my camera fills my heart with so much delight! When I bought tickets for The Lights Fest this summer, I could hardly wait to see their reactions. I knew this would blow their minds. Goodness gracious, The Lights Fest did not disappoint!

Cincinnati Family PhotographyOur tickets were purchased as soon as they were released – hello discount! It had been raining the entire week before and I was so nervous we would have terrible weather and we would miss this opportunity. Turns out it was a beautiful and HOT day!

We arrived a little after 5pm, way too early if you have a two year old with you ;). We played & spun in the fairgrounds, chased bubbles (and our two year old runner), ate tons of snacks, and drank all the drinks lol. 
Our kids spent time decorating their lanterns. Isabel got creative and turned hers into a spin-off of Tangled. Eli wrote about all the people he loves on his, such a Eli thing to do. And, Sam, he punched a huge hole in his throwing a epic temper tantrum. Also, a very Sam thing to do. Two years old’s, yeash.
Her lantern looks great, doesn’t it? She is definitely the family artist!We grabbed a few family pictures too as the sun was setting. You know how much I love sun flare during the golden hour! By the time it was approaching lantern time, everyone seemed to be fading fast. The 9:45 lantern launch time really pushed their fatigue and patience.

As all the lanterns rose in the air, the MC played Hallelujah, and I was officially I was speechless. One of the most spectacular things I have ever seen. Eric was even awe struck and mentioned how cool it was to see all the lanterns floating in the air.

Sam could hardly contain his excitement.  (I am so glad I caught this on video!)

The Launch

The Lights Fest was a total win, even with a two year old! It was a one of a kind experience that I will treasure! Check out the lanterns for yourself!

Everette’s First Birthday Wild One Cake Smash

Cincinnati Cake Smash Photographer

Happy First Birthday, Everette!

Oh how I love cake smash sessions!  I first met this sweet family when they signed up for my Easter Bunny Mini Sessions. It wasn’t long after that session that Mom contacted me about setting up a Wild One cake smash for Everette. I have shot many other Wild One cake smashes in the past but wanted to do something a little different this time. I was thrilled when Mom said she had a tent and this adorable little Wild One banner to bring to the session. It tied my vision together perfectly, don’t you think?

Check out Everette’s cake smash below and let me know what you think!
