Valentine's Day Mini Sessions - Cincinnati Family Photographer

I love themed mini sessions! These Valentines Day Mini Sessions were the first of 2014 for me. And they were a huge success. 

Can't wait for my Easter Mini sessions at the end of March!

Photo Booth - Cincinnati Wedding Photographer

I love photographing photo booths! They are so easy and add great entertainment to any event! 

I have done photo booths at high school graduations, weddings, one year old birthdays, and anniversaries. 

I try to mix things up with each photo booth... New props or a different kind of backdrop. Sometimes clients add to props but at this point I have a pretty big collection of random props!

All full day wedding coverages get a free photo booth for their reception!

Here are a few of my favorites.

Erin & Dave's Wedding - Cincinnati Wedding Photographer

Erin and Dave's wedding was beautiful! A few days before Christmas, on a cold and rainy day. The ceremony was lovely and Erin's dress was stunning! The reception site was amazing (I wish it didn't rain so we could explore it a little more) and the whole reception was simple but elegant!

So Dear - Cincinnati Family Photographer - Sonja B Photography

This family is so dear to me! I met them about 4 years ago at a Starbucks, they answered an ad and here we were discussing their upcoming birth. 
Not only did I capture their first sons birth, I did maternity pictures, three months, six months, 9 months and one year pictures. All of the above not once but twice... Well Porter (their youngest) decided to come early so I missed his birth. But I photographed him in the NICU, his coming home pictures. On top of all that I did Christmas Pictures, Birthday Parties, new offices.... Getting dizzy? Me too! I love this family. I feel like I am part of their family (I am there for every major event). So this session was extra special to me and I think the outcome is special too. 

One of my favorite sessions in 2013. 

And here is one of the first pictures I have ever done for them... When it was just the two of them!

Thanks Ehryn & Danny!

Happy Birthday Finny!

Someone had his Fourth Birthday! Yes, my Finny turned 4! Can't believe he made it to 4!!! Haha 
The week before his birthday we hosted a backyard movie. We played Charlie Brown and Casper. We had popcorn, hot dogs, candy and hot apple cider. It was a blast and everyone loved it. The easiest party to pull off too!
On his actual party we surprised him with a kitten! A friend of ours told us that her Dad has 10 week old kittens in his barn. They are wild but we could try to catch one. It was actually easier to catch a kitten then we thought. I think this kitten is very happy it got out of the cold barn and get rid of its fleas!
Hopefully this will be a great year for Finn and for us! We are really proud of him as he is doing so well in preschool and at Speech! We love his imagination and just pure joy in life!!!

Red, White & Boom

Happy Birthday USA! Not my first Fourth of July but my first as a US citizen! The day was a wash out. Plans got canceled... Some got changed, but all over it was a good one! We celebrated with some hot dogs and blue berry cream tart! The Pops concert and the fireworks were amazing (as usual). The kids ran around in the rain and at the end of the night we had some soaking wet but happy kids!

Mr. Ian - NICU - Cincinnati Child Photographer

I don't even know how many times I have photographed this little guy. But every single time is special. This was the first time I have ever seen him in his clothes and the first time I watched his mother pick him up carefree, like a mother should be. No nurses helping her, no 10 wires and tubes... I have never seen my friend this happy.
Ian - you amaze me every single time I see you. You are truly a miracle and I am so thankful that I get the opportunity capture this miracle.
Eli - you are the reason I hug my children a little tighter, or read them another bed time story after I already read 10. Thank you for giving me back a little more patience with my children. Miss you.

30 in January - Cincinnati Family Photographer

Last year I tried to put together a calendar of my children for Christmas and I realized I didn;t have pictures of my kids in some months. It made me sad. I photographed 130 families last year, documented important milestones in their lives, such as births, birthdays and weddings but I failed photogaphing my children in day to day activities. I knew I had to change this and so I have decided to do a 365 this year. 365 pictures of my children in 2013. Every day a picture.

I have done this before... many times, but have always failed. What is different this time? Nothing! No expectations at all. I actuatlly missed day 3. Totally forgot. No excuse, but I decided not to give up but move on.

So far I am loving it. I made it to the end of January and I have more picture (including the take outs) of my children this month than in the entire 2012!

Here are some of my favorites from January.

Another Photobomb - Cincinnati Family Photographer

Remember I said Finn tried anything to get in the picture with his godparents on the bed?

He did!
