Family Photographer Columbus Ohio

Downtown Dublin Family Session | Columbus Ohio Photographer

We had beautiful fall weather for this family session! It was my first session in Downtown Dublin and I am pretty sure it will no be my last. I just adore all the colorful storefronts and cute scenery there!

Thank you so much, Natassja and Ryan, for having me capture these sweet moments of your 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!

A Little About Me | Columbus Ohio Photographers | Erika Venci Photography

For those that do not know much about me, I wanted to share some fun facts about myself and why I love photography so much!

1. Small town roots

I grew up in a small farm town in Northwest Ohio called Wauseon.

2. Cheese and wine are my two favorite foods ... if you count wine as a food.

Give me a bottle of rosé or pinot noir and some good comté and I am set. Oh, and maybe some olives to munch on. I also love to put ice in my rosé in the summer. 

3. I believe in the power of positivity and positive visualization. 

My family has a vision board hanging in our kitchen.. Have you ever heard of a vision board? It is a collage of images of our family and also images and words about our goals and dreams. We have vacation goals, work goals, positive sayings, and uplifting messages included on it. I love seeing it every morning. I believe that if you have your goals and dreams in mind every day and work hard towards them, you can achieve them.

4. Je parle français. 

A Veterinarian is what I aspired to be when I was younger. The arts won over the sciences when I was in college and after studying in Nice, France, I changed my major to French Language and Culture. I also studied in Dijon, France. Nice is a city that will always have my heart.

5. My musical taste is pretty eclectic.

...and includes everything from old school country to hip hop. Alan Jackson, Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, The Beatles, Alison Kraus, Sam Smith, Nicki Minaj, Sean Lennon.. the list of artists that I love is long and makes for a huge music library on my computer!

6. Photography is my heart work..

Meaning this is what makes my heart sing. This is where my heart is. It is also my business but I feel so blessed to do what I love. I have always been artistic and had an eye for photography but to be able to accomplish starting and running a business, learning how to take better photographs, and persisting over the past two years has been an amazing and fulfilling experience. Helping others preserve precious moments together with my photography makes my heart SO happy and I am so grateful for each and every family that trusts my vision and appreciates my talents.

Sunset Family Session | Columbus Ohio Photographer - Erika Venci Photography

I have been SO blessed with adorable families and beautiful sunsets this fall! October really is a magical month for photographers.. especially when the sun is setting early enough that the little ones don't have to stay up too late for pictures!

This family is so special to me as I have known Stephanie since I was 12 and she is one of my best friends. She is the kind of friend who always calls to check in and is there when you need her. Although we are in a very hectic time of our lives raising toddlers, I am so happy she and I live in the same city once again and can get together for play dates and occasional dinner dates (aka mom's night out!) 

When I was editing these photos, I had the biggest smile on my face.. this family and their little girls are SO sweet and we created some really fun moments together! 

Enjoy the gallery! 

Love & Light,
