Kaity and Justin:: Columbus, Ohio Wedding Photographer

This Saturday I had the honor of documenting a BEAUTIFUL wedding. Kaity and Justin were such a beautiful and FUN couple! The bridal party were great sports, and the whole day went really smooth.

The ceremony and reception both took place at the Dublin Golf Club. We were all a little nervous in the morning, because it was raining...HARD. However, around noon, the sun started coming up, and the rest of the day was PERFECT. We had to deal with a little mud, but if that is the worst thing to happen on a wedding day, I would consider them very blessed! I wish Kaity and Justin all the happiness in the world, and a lifetime of success and joy.

ANNND here are a TON of photos:-) Enjoy!!!

Journey of Life Photography and Videography Product: Columbus, Ohio Maternity and Newborn Photography

About 9 months ago Adam (my videographer) and I decided we wanted to collaborate and produce a unique project for my expectant clients. One thing I always wished when we lost Rosalynn in 2010, is that we had her pregnancy documented. There were so many things I forgot about it, and memories were slipping away. After her death, I started to document as much as I could on my blog, "The Journey of Life and Love". I wanted to remember all I could before every memory slipped away. I proceeded to document everything about my "Rainbow baby", Avaleen's pregnancy. MULTIPLE times a week I would write. I am forever thankful and grateful for these written accounts of the journey of carrying my precious daughter.

Adam and I started talking, and I told him I would like to offer something similar to my clients....but through photography and video. I wanted every mother to be able to look back and hear, see, and remember. I want dad to be able to go back and watch their DVD 18 yrs from now, and remember the hopes, dreams, and aspirations he had for his son or daughter. This is when he came up with the idea of "The Journey of Life". I was THRILLED!!! We were on the same page, and together we could produce something beautiful, unique, and PRICELESS.

Jessika and Matt were more than HAPPY to stand in as our first pilot family. After losing her mother, Jeanie,  to pancreatic cancer in June of 2010, Jessika became pregnant a year later, and had to face going through her first pregnancy without her mother. I cannot EVEN imagine. Cole was born, and has blessed their lives everyday since!!!

SURPRISE: 10 months later they found out they were expecting again!!! This time it was a little princess!!! This little girl Jessika can carry on the mother-daughter relationship that her and Jeanie shared. And now I present the sneak peak to Taylor Jean Marie's Journey of Life:





So, now those of you interested, I KNOW you are wondering what a project like this will cost. There is a basic package that includes 1 interview/event (shower, sprinkle, gender reveal), maternity and newborn photos with behind the scenes video taken during the session, and a hospital visit w/in the first 24-48 hours. All of this will be beautifully edited to music on a 30-45 minute video delivered on HD DVDs, and will also include all high resolution files from your photo shoots. This basic package is debuting at $1500. You will have the option for add-ons including the actual birth, extra events, a maternity timeline (baby bump pics 4-5 times throughout your pregnancy), etc. Please email info@irisheyesphotography.net for the full price list.

Special Family:: Columbus, Ohio Family Photographer

This family holds a very special place in my heart! Their son is adopted, and his mom contacted me to do an "anticipation session". However, before we were able to schedule it, they were blessed with their new bundle of joy. His newborn session was awesome, and they decided to come back to me for both his 3 month, and his 6 month session. During his 6 month session, we were excited to include his biological sister in the session as well.

They are such an amazing and blessed family.

Mini Milestone Session:: Columbus Ohio Children's Photography

Often, parents don't have the need for a full session. They have already committed to  a Baby's First Year package, but want in-between mini sessions. I have a family that purchased the 3 session package (Newborn, 6 month, and 1 yr), but they wanted a mini session in between each milestone, but they were not in need of an ENTIRE 1.5 hr long time slot. So I came up with a great idea. I extended them a special offer: 30 mins in studio or on location and 5 full resolution digital images of their choice for $200.

There are a few rules that go along with these mini sessions:

-You must have purchased a Baby's First year package, OR a "Watch me grow" (yrs 2, 3, 4, and 5) Or had a full, regular session at some point in the last 12 months.
-The session is scheduled the same day I have another session scheduled so I am not making a 1 hr round trip drive to the studio for 30 mins.
-The entire $200 must be paid at booking
-The session will be held at the studio or on location
-These sessions are for 1 child. each additional child is $25 or an entire family is $50 extra.
-The images will be delivered digitally
-This offer can also be applied to a 30 min mini-maternity session:-)

Here is the entire gallery from the last mini  9 month session I did. As you can see, they had a lot to choose from and could not decide. With that being said, there is the option to upgrade to all the images.
