Fun with Brooklyn & Nathan

It’s so important for me to talk with my clients before a session to ask lots of questions about location options, what their space looks like and whether or not a session in the studio makes most sense for their wants and needs. This session became a mix of a traditional portrait session and lifestyle/storytelling session with the addition of a bubble bath! Not only was this a great way to end the session, millions of bubbles are a great bribe for smiles and cooperation during the session to get great posing for portraits.

Guys, I love your new space and I can’t wait to see these images on the walls! There’s so many more where these came from but here’s some of my favorites!! Thanks for having me over and sharing your new home with me!!

xoxo - Natalie

One Day Only!!! Saturday, December 1st! Last Minute Holiday Studio Mini Sessions $150!!!

The Holidays are HERE and I’m opening up ONE DAY ONLY of Studio Mini sessions one Saturday, December 1st. These sessions are for those of you who weren’t prepared for how fast this year went (like me) and didn’t get a session scheduled! We have only a 3 weeks until all sessions commence for this Holiday Season! I usually don’t take sessions into December with guaranteed delivery for Holiday gift giving but since the 1st falls on a Saturday I figured let’s give it a go this year!

These sessions are great for last minute Holiday portrait gifts, grabbing a family photo for your Holiday card or just commemorating another year around the sun! Here’s how this will work, since this is the very last day to get a session delivered in time for Holiday Gift Giving there’s some important information and details for these sessions. See below and please email or call with any questions!

These studio Mini Sessions are 15 minutes long. That means only ONE GROUPING of up to 6 people. A “Grouping” means if you are coming in with the family, we will photograph the entire family in that 15 minutes on one set. This gives us just enough time to get the best pose, smiles and a few great images!

If you are interested in doing photos of the Family and then of just the kiddos, you will need to book another 15 minute slot right after. If you want to do individuals of the kids also, more 15 minute time slots. For the individuals, please contact the studio to see how many you will need to book based on the age of your children.

$150 includes a 15 minute session for up to 6 subjects and 3 digital files with reprinting rights that will be available for Digital Download only! NO PRINTS WILL BE SOLD FROM THESE SESSIONS, unless you are ok with no guarantees on Holiday delivery. I also have 20% off discount codes for my clients if you would like to order Holiday cards on www.minted.com Here is the discount code in case you need it! HOLPHOTO4595

Each time slot you book will be $150 and come with your choice of 3 digital files with reprinting rights for Download. So if you book two time slots, you will get 6 digital files with reprinting rights. If you love more than 3 images from one 15 minute session, additional files can be purchased as well. All viewing and ordering will be done online.

You will have your choice of three studio sets:

Classic Ivory Family/children set

White Vintage Christmas set

Zoe & Lucy

Broad Ripple is such a fun neighborhood in Indianapolis, IN and the perfect location for this fun sister session on a beautiful day! These girls are a great example of how important it is to capture this Tween stage of life! Lucy is teetering on that fine line of kiddo or teen and her big sis Zoe is sprinting towards her teen-dom! The first time I photographed Zoe was in a tutu, same long beautiful hair, spunk and owning the camera. I love watching my littlest clients grow. But ok now, you can stop!! Always a great time catching up and photographing these beauties! Thanks for such a fun session and I hope your bubble tea was delish!

Emma Class of 2019

Emma is ready to take on her Senior year and killed it for her senior Portraits! We had to reschedule a few times because it was just. too. hot! But we managed to grab a cooler evening finally for her urban senior session in Camp Washington. You look amazing and so grown up! I feel like just yesterday I was photographing you and your cousins on that fire truck at Cole’s Birthday party…chubby faced and no where near senior year!! I’m so happy I could capture these for you and I wish you the best of everything your last year of High School and beyond!!

The Morelands

OH how the time passes so quickly! My trip to Indianapolis included an updated Family session for some of my favorite people on the planet! Somehow the girls are growing older quickly and their parents seem to be aging in reverse!! Thank you for the hospitality and the wonderful visit while I was in town! Spending more than just a meal with you all to catch up was wonderful! I love your new house and can’t wait to see where you put these and all the sessions to come! Girls, you can stop growing up now…you are both so beautiful and hilarious!! I loved spending time with you!

Sophia & Sebastian

Sometimes the best locations are right where you least expect them. As a photographer it’s my job to find those places, find the perfect light and to have a vision for your session. This session couldn’t have come together more perfectly! I won’t say too much on this post and let the images speak for themselves. Also they are a surprise for Christmas cards so no tagging or sharing :) I have permission to post here though! Enjoy…these are some of my favorite new images!

Note: this is a fully custom Creative Session. That means date, time and location are chosen for a specific look. These sessions are given priority for those golden light hours everyone loves! It’s Ohio so we don’t always luck out with sun when we want it but we always have a back up plan! If this is the style you love and want for your family portraits call early to make sure the right time and dates are available for your session.

The Giles Family

It’s been almost 10 years I’ve been photographing this family! Hard to believe it was only Missy and Josh and what seems like yesterday! They introduced me to Mt. Airy forest with a request for the treehouse for their engagement session and I’ve been smitten with the location ever since! The light was just perfect, albeit a little humid and the kids were happy to be outside! The Fall color is starting to creep in even if the Fall temps are a little far behind! Thank you for always choosing me to be a part of capturing your family milestones! I love watching your little family grow!

STN_3019 copy.jpg

Perfect outfits all the time! Missy has the best style…you should see their house!

Emanuel, Julian & Stella

These little cuties came down from Columbus for a Summer Session with me here in Cincinnati! I know their mommy from High School where we cheered together and caused a ruckus with our other Cheer Pals. I remember all of the fun like it was yesterday! The last time I saw Mom in person though (thanks Facebook for keeping us all so close and up to date these days) was in Venice, Italy in 1999.

What was so amazing about the last time I saw her was that it wasn't planned! See Allison was stationed overseas and I hadn't talked to her since High School, let's say in 1995, when she graduated. I was in Italy for the Summer studying and visiting family and we decided to take a trip to Venice on a Sunday. It was going to be so much fun. However, my friends and I were on a 1:00 train from Florence and didn't realize, until we were halfway there, that the last train out of Venice was at 7:00. That wouldn't be nearly enough time to see the sights and experience Venice the way we wanted to. It was also the middle of Summer and we didn't bring a change of clothes. But we decided to get a hotel room, stay the night, and leave instead the next day. It was such a great idea because there was a huge fireworks display that night on the banks of the Arno celebrating one of the churches and we really got to experience the culture of the city.

So we were beat, we were sweaty and stinky, and we were ready to get back to Florence the next morning. We plopped down on some steps outside the train station to wait for our trains arrival in a few hours because our feet were done. Low and behold I hear "Natalie?!, Oh my gawdddd!" I looked up and there she was! Randomly in Venice with friends for the day! My cousin was with me and had her trusty disposable camera out and snapped the interaction as it happened! So cool! I posted the photos at the end of this post if you'd like to see. It was such an amazing memory that we still talk about to this day! I can't believe we have pictures to remember it!

Ok so on to seeing each other again for the first time in person in OMG 19 years!!! Almost to the day at that! I got to hug her again and meet her 3 beautiful children and play in the park with them! Dad couldn't make it but I was able to sneak mom in for some of the fun! These kids are adorable and I am so thankful she asked me to capture their portraits!

I made sure to tell mom to bring snacks for the kids for after the long drive and they were chowing down on these plums. Look at this baby's eyes! LOVE!

Thanks so much for coming down and catching up! You don't look a day older than the last time I saw you and exactly the way I remember you! I had so much fun looking at your babies while editing and noticing all of their little features that remind me of you! Next time I hope to get to meet dad and so much time won't have passed before we can catch up again!!

"OMG what?"

"OMG what?"

"Are you serious?"

"Are you serious?"

Cheer pic for good measure (she's gonna kill me ;)). That's me front row on the left - I had Mono for what felt like 3 months before they diagnosed what was wrong with me, so the start of my Sophomore year was a little rocky. That's Allison on the right, front row. This photo is great! Also, I've photographed 5 of these girl's families over the years...how awesome is that?&nbsp;

Steph & Jordon | waiting for baby

Living in our loft the last 3 years we have made some really amazing friends that we now consider family. As we started the home buying process we knew we wouldn't be moving far and our friends still living at the lofts would only be 2 blocks away! However, we got to keep two of our pals just as close as living in the same building since they moved onto the same street as our new house! Jordon and Steph are expecting a sweet baby at the end of August and I'm over the moon excited that I will be only a few houses away for all the baby snuggles I can handle at any given time I choose! We are so excited for you guys and can't wait to meet that little bug! Steph you look stunning! Ok Jordon you look pretty ok yourself ;)

These images were taken in what we have dubbed the neighborhood photo garden! I noticed shortly after we bought the house at the end of the street (literally maybe 50 feet from our house) there is a field with wildflowers and tall grasses. It's like it was made just for me to photograph in! I called Steph and told her we HAD to photograph there before the flowers were gone. So we waited for the perfect light and walked down the street!

The light in their house is pretty gorgeous too! We were taking a break from the heat when I saw the light coming through the dining room and had to do a few shots there. Jordon and my husband got in on the action for their own "belly photos" but I'll let them post at their discretion elsewhere :)
