Joanna Andres is a newborn, children and family photographer in Columbus, Ohio. Her studio is located in Upper Arlington and she serves clients within all of Central Ohio. Take a look at some of her previous newborn, milestone, and/or family session that showcase some of her favorite photos from her sessions.
I was so happy that Jurga and Zach chose me to photograph their maternity and newborn session. Jurga had reached out to the Upper Arlington Discussion Forum on Facebook asking for a referral for a newborn photographer. A few people had referred me, thank you to those of you who do that, I really appreciate it! Jurga contacted me and we met at my studio for a consultation so she could see my work. We hit it off immediately. Jurga was so sweet and you could tell how excited she was to become a new Mom. We scheduled her maternity session it was so fun as they brought their sweet dog who wore a little tie!
She finally had baby Liam, his due date was 8/26 but they had to get him induced in September as he was nice and snug in his Momma's belly. When she told me he was 9 pounds I got so excited because I knew I'd be able to capture those newborn baby back rolls which are my favorite thing to photograph on a newborn. He was such a sweet baby and we got a lot of great shots.
When they came back for their reveal, the slideshow brought Jurga in tears which meant that I did my job! ;) They loved all the images. I can't wait for them to get their gorgeous layflat keepsake album and canvas that they will be hanging on their fireplace. They brought me a photo of their wall and we were able to determine the best size to display their canvas for them. This is a service that I love providing for my clients. I don't want to just hand over the digitals and my job is done. I want to help my clients figure out what they want to do with their images that I worked so hard to create. I want to know the colors of their rooms so I can coordinate the baby's outfits so the portrait will look perfect with all their colors and decor. I know how overwhelming it can be when you have several images and you don't know which ones to print, which ones to hang, etc. I love sitting with my clients and figuring out what it is they want and envision. I've also found that when I spend more time with them I build a relationship with them which I love getting to know my clients even better. Thank you Jurga and Zach for being wonderful clients. Congratulations on your new bundle of joy! It was such a pleasure work with you and your new little little family. I hope to continue to work with Baby Liam again for future milestone sessions.
It was such a pleasure meeting the Pizzino Family from Westerville, Ohio. They were referred to me by a previous client and I am so grateful they chose me to photograph their adorable baby girl, Emma Grace. She was a dream to work with and did amazing for her session. We were able to get such a nice variety of shots. I am so excited to put a gorgeous layflat album together for them! She will love looking back at her newborn photos in her book to see how tiny she was! They grow too fast!
Thank you Pizzino family and thank you for the amazing review, I really appreciate it.
"We went to Joanna for our newborn pics last week and it was a wonderful experience!! We were a little nervous knowing how newborns are so unpredictable with their behaviors:)
Joanna made this the most stress-free experience, and as parents of a newborn we actually had time to relax and unwind during the session. I was amazed by Joanna's ability to calm my baby for a 2+ hours photo shoot while my husband and I relaxed and watched a movie with our 5 year old:) Definitely worth the investment and so excited to see the rest of the pics!!"
I recently captured Baby Ella's newborn photos. Her parents, Racheal and Alex, from Pataskala, were so very nice. You could see how much happiness Ella brings to them. Ella was a great baby, too! I enjoyed working with this family and hope to get to capture baby Ella again for future milestone sessions. Thank you for the great review, too! I love it when my clients can see that I have a true passion for what I do. I am so fortunate to have some amazing clients. Thank you for allowing me to capture Ella Marie for you!
"We decided to work with Joanna for our first newborn, Ella Marie. From the very beginning she was wonderful. She responded quickly to any questions we had about the session and we were lucky enough to book her a week after Ella was born. During the session, she was not only great with Ella, but with us as well. We barely had to lift a finger while we were there...which is wonderful for first time, exhausted parents. You can tell that this is a passion for her. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone for a session! We cannot thank her enough for capturing memories of our first little one."
It was so great to work with The Wenker Family, from New Albany, Ohio. We started the session with some family and sibling shots. I knew these were important to Mom as she mentioned to me that they haven't had professional photos done of the entire family in a while. I'm so glad we got some awesome shots and the sibling shots are so adorable - the boys were so great and love their baby sister so much. Those bow ties were so cute, too! Baby Elise did great for her session. She was a sweet baby. I loved that Elise's Mom was able to relax the entire session. My goal for all my clients is to provide an awesome experience. Having two children myself, I know how tough those first few weeks are with a newborn. Mom was able to relax on the couch, reply to emails and texts and enjoy some peace and quiet for 2 hours. She also left me a great review which I really appreciate. Thank you Wenker Family for choosing me to capture your adorable baby girl, Elise.
"We recently had our infant daughter photographed and our experience was nothing short of amazing. Joanna was kind, gentle, patient and creative with handling and photographing our daughter. She literally had every detail covered which made me so grateful and relaxed. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her highly to anyone interested in infant photography. Thank you Joanna!"
Even though I specialize in newborn photography, I always like to get out of my comfort zone and dip my feet in Senior Photos. I love babies but I also enjoy doing senior sessions, too! I figure I should get the experience because all my newborns will become seniors one day, right!? Delaney, from Dublin, was so great to work with. We met at Innis Woods for her Senior Pictures and it was such a gorgeous backdrop for a beautiful girl. She's stunning so every image was so hard for me to narrow down because she photographs so well. Thank you for choosing me to be your senior photographer! Best of luck with all your endeavors! Enjoy your senior year!
