Benjamin | Columbus Ohio First Year Photography

I was sooooooo excited to return to this GORGEOUS home for another in-home lifestyle shoot. Sweet baby Benjamin is one year old (I know, I can’t believe it either.) And Amy is the best interior decorator. The glorious light that floods their home makes it a photographer’s dream setting. Enjoy my favorites!Barker-3Barker-1

Perfect Weekend :: Benjo would wake after 7 and come to the big bed for cuddles followed by a lazy breakfast at home. We would spend the morning at COSI and the afternoon in the park. BB loves to be out and about so maybe a happy hour dinner on a patio followed bath play time which is his favourite part of the day. He would then be soundly a sleep by 7 and we would would be on our own patio with wine!

Justina - I love the family portraits, especially the ones with mama. This little boy has such a big personality! And since benjamin’s zig zag sweater is so cool, I’m inspired to go find a grown adult sized one now!
