Family Session and a beautiful sunset at Blendon Woods | Columbus Ohio Photographer - Erika Venci Photography

I had so much fun with this family in the pretty glowing sunset a couple weeks ago. They are so sweet and I feel so lucky that they wanted me to capture them!

Family Session at Oakland Nursery | Columbus Ohio Photographer

I had such a fun time following this family around Oakland Nursery for some spring photos! It was a cold day but we ended the session in the green house and the boys loved it. I remember when we did this session, we felt like we would never ever see summer because it was such a cold spring! I'm so glad summer is finally here and we can soak up the sunshine!

Thank you so much, Nicole and Ryan, for allowing me to document your sweet family. 

Family Session at Glenn Echo Park | Columbus Ohio

This is my beautiful cousin's family. Kelsey and I have known each other since birth (literally!) and have remained close through the years. She has always been such a great friend and support that I know I can always reach out to. She is a strong and beautiful momma with admirable hustle and dedication to her family. I was so happy when she asked me to take their family photos again this year!

Seeing our kids play together while they were in town that weekend was the best thing. I think it is so special when you get to watch your children grow up together with your friend's children. It brings back childhood memories of Kelsey and I being inseparable when we were little and those are memories I will always cherish! Our boys really had a great time and I will always remember this weekend!

Thank you so much, Kelsey for the memories this weekend! I love you!

Newborn days. 

Every time I visit a family in their home for a newborn session it takes me back to the newborn days. These are days filled to the brim with love, awe, sleep deprivation, laundry, newborn squeaks and snuggles. There is nothing else like these days. You think you won't make it through one more night with two hours of sleep but then each newborn snuggle is like a second wind to keep going. These days are short-lived and despite how hard raising a tiny human can be, you will long for them again.

Thank you so much, Charles and Manuela for asking me to document this very sweet and special time in your lives. You are already amazing parents and I cannot wait to watch little Juniper grow.
