Raelynn's One Year Lemonade Stand Milestone Session

August 16, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I can't get over that sweet little Raelynn is turning ONE this month!  I remember when her Mom, who was also my sorority sister in college, told me that she was adopting a baby girl.  I was so thrilled for her and I had goosebumps as soon as she told me.  I have been capturing all of sweet Raelynn's milestone sessions and she never disappoints.  She is always so adorable for all her images. I just loved that their theme was a lemonade stand. They bought the custom sign from Etsy and made the stand themselves.  It's so adorable that I may need to make one like this for my clients! They also wanted to do a family session which we did and they turned out great!  Thanks Jodi, for choosing me to capture such a special time in your life.  I can see the joy that sweet Raelynn brings to you!

Maternity Session at The Park of Roses

August 16, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I was honored to capture The Wang's Maternity Session at The Columbus Park of Roses.  Pei was just glowing and I can tell they are both so excited to meet their baby girl soon!  Pei was a natural with the camera and I just loved how this maternity session came out.  The vibrant colors she chose for her maternity session just really popped in all the images.  Thank you for the wonderful review and I can't wait to meet and capture your new bundle of joy when shes arrives! 

"Definitely recommend!! Joanna is extremely professional and super easy to work with. You could see that she really thinks and cares a lot for her customers. She offers great selections of albums which are made with high quality. Looking forward to working with her again!"

Adorable One Year Cake Smash Mermaid Themed Columbus Ohio

August 03, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I was so happy to see Eleanor for her 1 year milestone session.  It's been so much fun capturing her newborn, six month and 1 year milestone.  I can't believe how quickly one year went by.  I remember her newborn session so well, her Mom and grandfather came to the session and she was a great baby.  I also remember incorporating the U of M helmet into the session, you can see HERE!

She is having a Mermaid themed party which I was so excited about.  My daughter recently had a Mermaid themed Party and I thought everything about this was so cute!  I also loved the crying shot of Eleanor on the stool, might be a favorite and I'm sure she'll get a good laugh at it when she's older and looks at all these images in her beautiful keepsake album! 

Thank you Quada Family for allowing me to capture the first year of your sweet baby girls life!  It's been fun and I hope to work with you again!

Wyatt's Construction Themed First Birthday Session

August 03, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

It was so great to see Wyatt for his One Year Milestone Session.  His Mom had mentioned the theme to his party was a construction theme with trucks,etc.  She opted to not do the cake smash but bring in his construction hat from the party.  It was adorable. He was such a happy little guy!  I hardly recognized him since I haven't seen him since his newborn session which you can see here!

Thank you to the McKenzie Family from Dublin Ohio for choosing me again to capture this special time for you!

Upper Arlington Infant Photographer

July 30, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I am so grateful the Kale Family, from Upper Arlington, chose me to capture their very first baby girl, Meera.  They were referred to me by another client.  They came to my studio for a pre-consultation which I always recommend for my clients.  It's so nice to meet my clients before the session and they can take a tour of my studio, look at my props/outfits/backdrops that I have to offer in my boutique studio. We discuss what they plan on doing with the images and what they're envisioning for their newborn portraits.


  One thing that I feel that sets me apart from other photographers is that I take the time to meet and speak with my clients on the phone so I can learn more about them.  I also take the extra step to meet with them again not only for the session, but after the session for their reveal so I can help determine what they want to do with their images.  So many photographers just send their digital copies and so they can move on to their next client, but I like to be a full service Photographer where I can  help you select the products to display in your home, and help with design aspect as well. I will style the session based on where you plan on hanging your portraits.  It is a lot more work on my part as we have to meet several times, take the time to take the orders, enter them with different vendors and then set up another appointment when the client can pick up their artwork.  It's so worth all the time and energy as I feel that I really am helping my clients.  So many people who get digital copies get so overwhelmed with so many images, which ones do they print, where do they print, what products and what sizes should they print.  I will help you through that entire process!  

The Kale Family knew they wanted to get a canvas above their couch in their living room.  I made sure to style the session so that when they would hang a canvas it would coordinate with the colors in their room.  Meera did an amazing job at her session.  She shot me several smiles and was so good that we got a ton of great shots! They also purchased a gorgeous layflat album as a keepsake.  I hope to work with Meera and her family again for future milestone sessions.
