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 HEFFNER FAMILY | columbus, ohio family photographer

img_5461-blogLoved this family. Loved. I love my job. I am always nervous at first. Having 4 children can cause you to become a social outcast and fear adult conversations with real people:) But then I get to come out of my cage and meet great families with cool kids. The Heffner family just rolls with it. So nice and real with a little bit of…….

img_5467-blogCARAZY sprinkled in. And I am all about the crazy.

img_5555-blogLook at this little darling. I love the shape of his little chin. He has a ton of girlfriends. Speaking of which, I have the perfect girl for him in about 20 years:) Good luck – she’s hard!


img_5853-blogHumina! Humina! Check out the freckles, the squinty eyes when he smiles and the guns! Kyle was seriously one of the nicest big brothers I have ever met. In fact at the end it dawned on me that they didn’t get into a single squabble (miracle) and I asked if that was normal and mom said yes. Sigh. She better be lying.




img_5670-5667They still have it going ON!

I appreciate it so much when dad is on board – Jason was – and I love it when couples still want to smooch and laugh. I love the way Jason is looking at Gina in so many photos from this session.

img_5927-5922Seriously. They got along.  Have never seen anything like it.

img_5768-blogThis would be my giant canvas over the mantle. Needs to be a 20×20 square:)


Okay look away if you don’t appreciate pictures with heads missing. My personal favorite “artsy” shots from each session should have a name ….. like …. “all grandparents look away” .
