This sweet family of five just returned from living in Geneva, Switzerland for a few years. They are now back in Cincinnati living in temporary housing while their gorgeous new home is being built, and just couldn’t wait to squeeze in a session before their baby turns one year old. I’m so glad they didn’t hesitate! We had the most fun session, and I adore the images we documented of all three kids. This first photo is the very first one I took of our summer evening session. Yes, this baby was simply tickled pink to be placed in the thick soft grass. Of course at that moment, I knew we’d have a good time together and hit it off.


The older brother and sister had fun running around playing together too. This whole family was so good to each other, it was a joy to be around them all. I just love their happy little faces!



Here are some sweet black and white ones of the littlest sister. She was all over the place exploring the grass, my camera, mulch, and anything she could get her tiny hands on. I loved her energy and spunk and go-with-the-flow attitude. What a sweetheart! I am so glad we got these baby portraits in before she starts walking and becomes a full-fledged toddler. There’s nothing quite like the first year of life.



We ended the night with a splash in the baby blow-up pool and a few cool treats of popsicles. And, it was mommy’s birthday, which made it all extra special. Thanks L family for having me over. Your full gallery will be finished this weekend!
