I am a Columbus based photographer and welcome to my blog.

I love to photograph babies in the tummy, babies out of the tummy, kids being good, kids being bad, kids with special needs, kids with fur, couples in love, families being themselves and seniors in between text messages :)

I have a fun and carefree style that I think you will be very comfortable with. Of course I love to take the classic picture where everyone is looking at the camera with a perfect smile but what I really love to catch is the real "in between" moments. The candid moments that you will cherish forever.

This is my photo blog where I will share favorite images from recent sessions and blab about my interests and family.

Thanks for visiting my site and taking a look. I really appreciate it. 

THE WEST FAMILY | columbus, ohio family photographer





Good people. The kind of family that restores your faith that people are good in this world. Great parents. Great dad. There is nothing more attractive than a great dad is there? We found each other through Moose (our furry child). Pat owns and operates Dogwatch Hidden Fence company. Moose is now contained – I enjoyed talking to Emily – his wife – setting things up. It was our only adult conversation of the day so sometimes what could have been a 5 minute conversation turned into a 30 minute conversation, lol. They were so excited to have their pictures taken. Photographers love that. They also were so appreciative and complimentary and their girls were darling. Maggie is in the “yackity yack yack yack NO yackity yack yack NO” stage and Genna is in the “I’m going to sit here and smile because I’m so stinking cute” phase. I could totally just shoot only 9 month olds and be really really good at it!

My favorite …… love the sun, how candid it is, the look on Genna’s face
