Fur babies are one of my favorite things to photograph! I love doing it because for little lives that fill SOOO much of our hearts we often forget to collect photos of them! You’ll cherish these forever that’s FUR sure ( LOL I know I know).
First off, every 2nd birthday photoshoot should involve a cutie with a sprout ponytail, in a little tutu and “Brilliant” shirt, and a room absolutely full of balloons. It doesn’t get any cuter than this!!!!!! I just love little Malina and capturing her personality for this session.
Everett is the sweetest little guy!!! 1 year old and would pose for me like he was an old pro! Maybe he remembered me from his newborn session…?
So many OKOTA couples will recognize Emme’s momma, Libby! To say that I’m obsessed with her unicorn themed first birthday is a total understatement. The decor, that tutu, those cheeks!!! I can’t even!
Little Everett could not be sweeter. I first met his dad from my days working in the corporate world when I was a designer and photographer for POSSIBLE based out of downtown Cincinnati. When I left POSSIBLE to grow OKOTA I was fortunate enough to stay in touch with some awesome people that worked with me there and photograph their sweet sweet babies!!
I don’t think I’ve ever laughed more than I did at Andy and Rebecca’s maternity session. These two are an absolute BLAST and couldn’t be more deserving of the miracle that is twins!!! I am just so excited for them! I remember watching their super cool Facebook Live gender reveal when both pink and blue popped up on my phone screen and I literally squealed with excitement for them!!
When Katie reached out about having her engagement session party photographed I knew it would be so fun. She was as sweet as can be and this adorable party was set in her mom’s home. You know how you can walk into a room and literally feel the love radiating through the air? This was one of those settings for sure!
Kim, this session’s awesome Mamma, is an ah-mazing designer. She was actually my manager back in my corporate days while OKOTA was still just a dream. I always say it’s so flattering to be asked by a follow designer or photographer to do a session because they know what they are looking at! :) Plus I knew this session would be great because 1 her babies are like model-status-cute AND I’m allllll about urban backdrops like this session we did around Newport.
Maria is a member of Newport Central Catholic’s Class of 2019! Maria is now headed to NKU to run division 1 track. BIG things are in store for her that’s for sure :)
Little Ellory is adorable! I photographed her parents wedding back when OKOTA was very first starting out. Even though it’s been years, I still remember their gorgeous wedding at Krippendorf Lodge like it was yesterday. And their Eden Park engagement photos that included their adorable puppy, Bailey, is still an absolute favorite session of mine! Bailey is like the OG fur baby captured in an OKOTA engagement session. I love it when we come full circle and I’m now photographing bailey with his new little sister, and their sweet growing family!
Baby Ashton was just as sweet as can be. I had the pleasure of photographing Myra and Charles on their wedding day and was so honored to capture this next major milestone in their lives! I’ll NEVER EVER forget as they were packing up little Ashton to leave and we were saying our goodbyes Myra said “You’ve been with us through all the major times in our lives… our engagement photos, our wedding day, and now our baby!” AHHH cue waterworks! I’m so honored to do what I do.
I was so excited when Stephanie let us all know she and Jesse were expecting! Little Skylar has some super awesome (and extremely photogenic) parents!
