hello baby photos

First Day Earthside | Columbus Ohio Photographers | Fresh 48 Session

This fresh 48 session was so exciting! Not only did we get to capture this beautiful little girl's first day Earthside, but we were also there to document her meeting her big brother for the first time! It was so special and just pulled at my heart strings. 

Seeing siblings meet their new baby brother or sister is so adorable and fun because you never know how they will react. Sometimes there are tears, sometimes there are smiles and a lot of times it's a mix of both. This little guy was SO happy to hold his new baby sister.. the photos are priceless.

Little girl, you are so loved and I am so happy your family asked me to be there for your birth day! 

Welcome to the world! 

My 3 Favorite Things about Fresh 48 Sessions | Lifestyle Photographer Columbus Ohio


1. Family members interacting with baby

Is there anything sweeter than seeing a dad hold their new baby? These photos always get me. And siblings meeting their new baby brother or sister?! The best. I have been able to document these moments and nothing compares.


2. Tiny newborn feet

Here is the thing about Fresh 48 sessions.. they are FRESH! Your sweet baby has all these details that will change quickly over their first few days of life.. their wrinkled feet, cute squishy face, the way their hair is swirled, their umbilical cord or stump! I could go on and on.. we hear it all the time that these details are important to document because they are.


3. The love and excitement in the room

When I walk into a hospital room to document a fresh 48 session, I always notice so many emotions in the room. I can FEEL the love and excitement surrounding this new life. I am seeing people really in the moment and at the mercy of their emotions. Documenting real moments and emotions are the most precious photos to me. Yes, I still do a little posing with my clients, but the in between moments and candid photos are always my favorites and will likely be my client's favorites when they look back at their photos a few years from now.

Fresh 48 sessions are my favorite for a reason.. well, lots of reasons.. a baby being born is a lot like a wedding day! Why on earth wouldn't you hire a photographer to document this once-in-a-lifetime event? 


I am SO excited to announce that I am now opening my fall and winter calendar for fresh 48 sessions! I will only be taking 3 clients (according to due dates) each month From October to December. This allows me to ensure I can be there for each client when baby arrives.

My pricing for these sessions is $375 and includes 40 digital images

For more information or to reserve your session, please contact me. I would love to hear from you!


Love and Light,


Columbus, Ohio Photographer | Fresh 48 - Josephine

When I woke up to see a text message from my brother-in-law saying Josephine had made her appearance I was beyond happy and excited! I was even MORE excited when they invited me to the hospital to take her fresh 48 pictures that night! 

Josephine is the third grandchild in two years in my husband's family! She is also one of the few girls in a family full of boys! All three grand-babies have been born at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.. which is very close to a popular campus area pizza place called Adriatico's. So, there is a new tradition in the Venci family of the whole family visiting the hospital and bringing a huge Adriatico's pizza.

One of the many things that I love about our family is that we are very connected. My husband's parents and all FOUR of my husband's siblings live in Columbus and we are always getting together.. usually with a lot of food involved. :) So, it is no surprise that when a new baby is born, our tradition is pizza and being together. 


Josephine, you are such a beautiful and sweet little girl! Welcome to the family! Tita loves you so much already!
