Lifestyle Photographer Columbus Ohio

A Sweet In-Home Family Photo Session | Central Ohio Photographer - Erika Venci Photography

My beautiful cousin is also a photographer and has the most amazing, adorable family.. so I was more than honored when I got the chance to photograph them. We did a lifestyle and documentary session in their home on a Saturday morning. I just loved following them around the house as they went about their morning routine.

They made (and ate!) breakfast, got dressed and ready for their day, played, read a book, and little Minnie got a sink bath!

I cannot stress enough to everyone how awesome these sessions are. These are the kinds of photos that we all need. Real and authentic. True to the stage of life you are currently in. For young families, these sessions are especially amazing because they capture all the tiny details that life entails with young children and babies in the house. Details that will soon fade and change.

Demland Family - Thank you so much for the warm welcome into your home! I hope you will treasure these sweet photos forever.

Please check out my cousin’s gorgeous work here. She is my soul sister and one of the most kind people I know. If you are in need of a amazing, talented, great with kids photographer in NW Ohio, she is the one!

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 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 Winter Family Session in a Breathtaking Ohio Pine Forest

When Megan and I were planning her session, she sent me some location inspiration photos that she loved that were in a pine forest. I was not sure if I would be able to find a pine forest near Columbus, Ohio but decided I would sure do my best to find one! Thanks to instagram location tags and hashtags, I was able to find a gorgeous pine forest in Canal Winchester that was a part of Walnut Woods Metropark.

After a really long walk (in the freezing cold!), we were all SO excited when we saw the HUGE pine trees! It really was a breathtaking scene that you don't see too often here in Ohio. The scenic trees and wooded areas that were donning winter's plume were perfect for this family session. 

Thank you, Megan and Christopher for trusting my vision and braving the cold with me! I loved meeting your little guy and getting my baby cuddles in!
