Outdoor Cake Smash & Family Photo Session / Jillian Renee Photography

Jillian Rollins

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.   

Summer Nights / Columbus Ohio Family Photographer

Jillian Rollins

I always say that my heart is newborn photography, but then summer hits and all these amazing families allow me the opportunity to capture these images for them and I'm all caught up in the family photographer feels.

I just can NOT with watching families look into each others eyes, give snuggles, hold hands, giggle and just be.  There is something so magical about it all.  

My only hope is that these families actually
PRINT THESE PHOTOS and get them up and displayed.  
(pretty please?!?)

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.....

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

 

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
