Meet Baby "P" / Columbus Ohio Newborn Photographer

Jillian Rollins

This little guy and his family traveled all the way from out of state for this session.  
When that happens, you absolutely feel like it's "now or never" as you can't exactly just have them come back if baby decides to party like a rockstar instead of sleep.  
LOL
Luckily for me, baby P did not disappoint.  His whole family was so sweet and his big sister was totally model material.  
She was SO GOOD with him guys!  SO GOOD!
 I'm so honored they chose JRP.  I hope mama loves them as much as I do.

Enjoy....

 

My favorite age...the six month session / Columbus Ohio Baby Photographer

Jillian Rollins

I say "my favorite age", but who am I kidding?!?  
I love all dem' babies!  
Newborns, Six Months, One Year olds....then skip ages 2 and 3 and head right for four.  LOL!  
Can I get an amen?  
(All those mamas out there know just what I'm talking about) 
They go from sweet as pie to little rot-pots around 2 & 3.  
...and the man above, being the genius that he is, makes them so chubby and delicious and adorable that we don't even mind when they do go through their rotten stages!  

Seriously though, month six is so great. 
They are full of smiles and love to play but still love snuggles.
AND THEY STILL NAP TWO TIMES A DAY!  (again, amen from all the mamas out there!)  

Here's a little PRECIOUS PLAN member, half way through her first year with JRP. 
I may be obsessed.  She seriously is beyond sweet.  
To top it off her mom and grandmother are amazingly sweet.  
She couldn't ask for better women to look up too. 
Happy Half Birthday Dollbaby!

...and a little flashback to six short months ago.....

First Birthday Session / Columbus Ohio Childrens Photographer

Jillian Rollins

This little guy just turned one!
It's one of the best "perks" of the job!  
No, not the leftover smash cake (although that's a pretty good one too...lol!)  
But watching these tiny little babies grow into these full-of-personality 12month olds!  

Happy Birthday Landon!

Newborn Twin Boys / Columbus Ohio Newborn Photography

Jillian Rollins

Being a mommy of twins myself, I'm always so excited to have twin in the studio.  It's so crazy to think back to that chaotic time when your hands are full, the house is a mess (let's be real, mine is still a mess!), and you're just trying to keep your head above water.  I honestly have no idea how mamas of newborn twins do it!  And that is coming from a mamma of twins!  
I can hardly remember balancing a baby on each hip, pushing two shopping carts around the grocery store, or navigating the crowded aisles of a mall with a double stroller.  
I say that to give all of you mamas who are out there living it hour by hour hope.  For real, you just get through it and then one day look back and you're on the other side of it.  
Babies are such a blessing.  Oh my goodness.  There is NOTHING better in the entire world that to meet your little one(s) for the first time, but babies are WORK!  
We all know it's true!  
So hats off to all the mamas out there with their hands full and their hearts even fuller.....

xoxo, Jillian

Spring is finally here and I love being able to use light and airy
colors during my newborn session.  
This sleepy girl was so sweet!  

Enjoy!

Glitter Mini Sessions / Columbus Ohio Child Photographer

Jillian Rollins

Last month, I offered a special mini session event.  Glitter Mini Sessions.
Every little girls dream...tutu dresses and glitter.  I couldn't be more pleased with the way they turned out.  I also couldn't have been happier with the fun these girls had.  Each one walked into the studio reserved and a bit unsure of what to expect...but by the end, they were full of giggles while dancing to the Trolls soundtrack!  
Special thanks to all of the mamas who came out and make their little girl feel like she was the most important little princess in the world.  
Toe nails were painted.   Hair was curled.  Lipgloss was applied.
And it meant the world to them.  So thanks mamas...for making this day so special.
xo, Jillian

Emma turns one! / Columbus Ohio Baby Photographer

Jillian Rollins

Emma.  Sweet Girl.  Happy,Happy Birthday!  

I've had such a great time watching you grow this year.  
From sleepy baby to serious six-monther to smiley & silly twelve month old!  
Here's a look back at your first year....

 

Worth the Wait / Columbus Ohio Newborn Photographer

Jillian Rollins

After many storms...comes the rainbow.  This little guy was hoped and wished for and I'm so honored to be able to capture these memories for this family.  

They've waited so long to hold their sweet boy in their arms.

 

Look who's TWO / Columbus Ohio Child Photographer

Jillian Rollins

This guy.  He wanted NOTHING to do with pics.  He wanted snuggles.  More specifically, he wanted snuggles from daddy.  He wanted daddy to hold him and play with him and he wanted NO CAMERAS in the area while he got his snuggle on.  So, we made the best of it!  If there is one thing I've learned as a mom and now as a child photographer it's that you DO NOT pick fights with two year olds.  You just don't do it.  You'd have better luck wrestling a herd of cats into a cardboard box!  LOL!  In all seriousness, we did what we do at every session.  Went at the little ones pace.  Let him do his thing.  And caught some amazing memories along the way.
I included a cute outtake, hope mama and daddy don't mind.  It was too adorable not too!
 

Baby Charlotte / Columbus Ohio Newborn Photographer

Jillian Rollins

This sweet little girl was a dreamboat for her newborn session!  I think that her family images might be some of my most favorite ever!  She already has daddy wrapped around her finger.  He couldn't get enough of little Charlotte and her mama.  
I am so blessed to be able to share in these special moments with so many families!

Grayson is 6 months / Columbus Ohio Baby Photographer / Six Month Photo Session

Jillian Rollins

One of my favorite things about my business is that I get to watch all these tiny humans grow.  Seriously, JRP is like one big happy family and every time a client comes in for one of their baby plan sessions, it's like a family member walking in that I haven't seen in a while.  I love seeing how baby's legs are now hanging off of the carseat, when they were just a tiny little bobblehead the first time I saw them! lol!  Mom and dad have eased into their roles and since we've already spent time together at the newborn session, it's more like friends getting together for coffee and playdate versus a stuffy, rushed photo session.  It's so much fun.

I remember Grayson's full head of hair from his newborn session and little man did NOT disappoint when he came in for his six month photo session.  I might have to get him one of those shirts from Etsy that says #crazyhairdontcare !  He rocks it too!  He's so adorable, I asked his momma not to cut it ( like NEVER EVER!) but I guess we'll have to see what his 12month session brings!  Stay tuned!

(sidetone: love the first pic when he's staring at the bucket in denial that he ever fit into that when he was a newborn...) 

Introducing Harper Marilyn / 6 days old / Columbus Ohio Baby & Newborn Photographer

This sweet little bundle of lovin was sooooo super squishy and super sleepy!  
I'm not sure she even opened her eyes once now that I think back on it.  
...and can we just talk about those rolls!  
I'm in love
 

Glitter Mini Sessions / Columbus Ohio Childrens Photographer / Jillian Renee Photography

Jillian Rollins

They're back! 

GLITTER MINI SESSIONS will be held at Jillian Renee Photography on Saturday, March 4th 2017.
Now, I've included some photos below from past sessions, BUT this years sessions will be a tad different.  The background will be a lighter color and not the dark grey.  This will change it up a bit for my returning clients and will also allow me to add a few new dresses/accessories I recently purchased.  Dresses will be provided for everyone!  You are more than welcome to wear your own outfit - the fancier the better!  Go for sparkly or simple....just keep the colors very light and airy.  Keep in mind, these are for girls ages 2 and older only
( no worries, I have some CRAZY adorable minis coming up for the little ones as well!)

I hope to see EVERYONE at these sessions.  They always turn out so amazing!
FYI: Each session includes digital images with print release and additional add-ons will be available at the session for purchase as well! 

In the next week or two, I plan to do a test session with the new color scheme, so keep an eye out on my FACEBOOK page for that!  Be sure to click  > HERE < to check it out!

Introducing Wyatt Beatrice / Newborn Photography Columbus Ohio / Jillian Renee Photography

Jillian Rollins

I love it when newbies come to the studio flaunting a full head of hair.  And this lady did NOT disappoint!  She was so pretty and so sleepy (once we got her to sleep...).  I also need to mention how amazing mama looks.  Right?  I am so happy that these two ladies spent an afternoon with me.  And I'm kind of loving the blanket and bow mama brought along
(see first pic...)

All boy / Jillian Renee Photography Columbus Ohio Newborn Photographer

Jillian Rollins

Momma and I bonded right away.  Sitting in my tiny loft turned newborn studio on the second floor of my home.  She had twins...I had twins.  We both understood the chaos and delicate balancing act of caring for two newborns at the same time.  I recognized the bags under her eyes and remembered all too well the days I longed for more than two hours of sleep at a time.  Fast forward to  my next photo studio.  A small pink building nestled in downtown Canal Winchester.  Two toddlers and now a third baby boy.  Glowing but also overwhelmed, this mama gracefully cared for her three boys.  It was great to reconnect.  Now we both had three boys and shared "war" stories of being a mom to all boys.  Another couple of years, she enters my much larger studio and it's a good thing I decided to "upgrade".  In walk two little men.  Dressed to kill.  Then comes another one.  Dressed just like the other two and finally in walks dad carrying a new baby. A fourth boy.  And their family is complete.  It's so great to see the smiles on their faces.  These five guys are so lucky.  This mama bear is so strong and loving.  I'm honored to be a part of their story......

baby's first year / jillian renee photography columbus ohio baby photographer

Jillian Rollins

 

One of my favorite things about being a newborn photographer is being able to capture all of the milestones of baby's first year.  When clients first walk in with their tiny babe tucked into the carseat, it's so fun to pull back the blanket and see this precious little angel all nestled in.  The carseat is 10 times their size.  When they walk back into the studio just six short months later it's the biggest transformation in the world.  They pull back the blanket and there is the same baby but now their feet go all the way to the edge of the carseat.  
They have a head full of hair, a toothy grin and are full of personality.  

Capturing Baby's First Year is so special!

I'm so fortunate to have such amazing clients.  I've had the privilege of photographing this sweet family for all of their newborn sessions.  This little sweetheart makes baby number THREE for them (truth be told, I hope they have 6 or 7 babies because they make the cutest kiddos around!).  This session proved to be a bit of a challenge with a 2 yr old and 1 year old "big" brother and sister.  We manage to get everyone settled though and as you can see, baby sis was able to catch a few zzzz's in the midst of the chaos.

 

Cake Smash Session - Woodland Theme / Columbus Ohio Baby Photographer

Jillian Rollins

Be still my heart with this smiley little dude.  I hadn't seen him since his newborn session so I was blown away when I saw how big he had gotten.  He was all smiles and didn't mind our countless outfit changes since we promised him cake when it was all done!  lol!  

I snuck in a few flashback photos at the end of his maternity and newborn session....I love a good before/after don't you!?
