Gus | Newborn Photography | Columbus, Ohio

I came to Columbus dragging my feet and complaining the whole way. And while I still won’t claim this town as my home in public, it’s my dear friends that make it so incredibly special to me. Adding this squishy newborn, Party Bus, to the roll call is par for the course.

For those not familiar with the Taylor’s and their nicknames, don’t be confused throughout this post. Trust that this sweet baby’s name is Gus on the birth certificate and not Party Bus. But I’ll refer to him as many things other than Gus. 😉 Enjoy a few of my favorites from our time together at our newborn session in their home.


Baby rolls. Tiny baby details. My absolute favorites.

Lauren, I love the photo on the left of you and Olivia. Look at how you are both sitting. Same! (And I did not encourage or suggest that. Promise.) And YEAH RIGHT you just had a baby. GAHHHH!!!!


There is no other guy in the world that makes me all teary like Nelson does. He’s just the BEST father. Your children are so, so blessed. Lauren is lucky to have you and Nels is lucky to have Lo. K, I’m done being mushy.



The First Born. This child melts me.


Bus!! Fist pumping! Lo and I were determined to get a cutie hat on him. He hated us.

Taylors! Party of FOUR!! (I love that sweet cry face Gus is making. He’s done.) Thank you for trusting me with your family photos, yet again. I love you guys. xoxo
