Happy Birthday M! / Columbus Ohio Child Photographer

Jillian Rollins

I have a confession to make. I have this horrible, embarrassing habit of taking on the accents of whomever I’m speaking too. Seriously. It’s beyond mortifying.

And it happens without me realizing until my husband tells me later in the evening that I started to talk like “so and so”. I die.

So when this sweet little southern drawl talking family walks into my studio, I have to stick a piece of gum into my mouth and call it a day. Mom and Dad have the cutest accents around and I’m sure that on more than one occasion, I’ve done it. I’ve started to get an accent myself. They probably think I’m crazy, but I’m so happy that they don’t mind it - so that I can watch not one , but TWO of their babies celebrate their birthday in style.
And boy oh boy, was this a cake smash for the books ya’ll ( see what I did there?!?!)

Outdoor Cake Smash & Family Photo Session / Jillian Renee Photography

I'm kind of wishing it wasn't almost fall here in Central Ohio...

...now don't get me wrong.  I love ALL things fall.  ALL OF THEM.  
But this outdoor cake smash session is giving me all the feels. It makes me want to hold onto the warm golden summer evenings just a little longer so I can capture more of these amazing outdoor birthday celebrations.   

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

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

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!

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....

 

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...)

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!
