Dover, New Philadelphia OH maternity photographer | promoted to big brother

This family is due for a baby any day now! I loved this maternity session out at Norma Johnson Center. We had a beautiful sunny evening for it too. My favorite. 🙂 I’d say big brother is pretty excited too!!! Momma was due on Mother’s Day so literally, I am just waiting for the baby message!!! And it makes it even more exciting that we don’t know if it’s a baby sister or a baby brother!! Either way, little one is truly loved already and will be welcomed with lots of love. ❤Dover, New Philadelphia, Green, Canton Ohio maternity and newborn photographer Dover, New Philadelphia, Green, Canton Ohio maternity and newborn photographerDover, New Philadelphia, Green, Canton Ohio maternity and newborn photographerDover, New Philadelphia, Green, Canton Ohio maternity and newborn photographerDover, New Philadelphia, Green, Canton Ohio maternity and newborn photographerDover, New Philadelphia, Green, Canton Ohio maternity and newborn photographerDover, New Philadelphia, Green, Canton Ohio maternity and newborn photographerDover, New Philadelphia, Green, Canton Ohio maternity and newborn photographerDover, New Philadelphia, Green, Canton Ohio maternity and newborn photographer Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio maternity + newborn photographer | maternity, family + couple | ©Brandi Williamson Photography

Dover, New Philadelphia OH family photographer | happy mother’s day weekend!

I recently saw this on a fellow photographer’s blog and absolutely loved the words she wrote. Breanna Peterson is a beautifully talented photographer and I wanted to give credit where credit is due. She is the one who wrote these amazing words and I know I couldn’t come up with anything to match it. Find her original blog post here on motherhood.

here I am, weaving a path between pride and exhaustion.
with sticky fingers, wrapped around my neck.
dirty kisses planted on my cheek.
bony bottoms softly wedged into my thigh.
laughter echoing between us.
curiosity glowing in six bright eyes.
confidence beaming in their strong steps.
amazement and awe wrapping its arms around me.

heavy eyelids sneaking an extended blink-
we balance.
arms out, one foot in front of the other,
we balance well.
& then we look at each other and we know.
I am here, children.
here I am, in motherhood.

happy mother’s day.
thank you, my three, for making me a mother.

In honor of Mother’s Day tomorrow, I am running a special on gift certificates. For every $50 spent you will receive an additional $15.

Dover, New Philadelphia OH photographer | my life | 10 on 10 (okay, 9th today)

Recently some photographer friends and I decided to start our blog circle. There aren’t any official rules or themes to it for the most part but I think for myself I am going to choose to make this into my own little 10 on 10 monthly post. 🙂 My goal is to post 10 images each month of the random goings-on of our own life. 😀

This month did sort of sneak up on me a bit so I’ll be honest and say I’m already cheating. 😉 I took a couple of photos from March but that’s okay. I love them and wanted to be sure to share. 🙂

Highlights of our recent life include:

playtime at the chalk table | a Spring concert with a 60s theme | a toothless grin | tablet time in a fort on a rainy day | a beautiful sunset on the evening of my Grandpa’s funeral | toddler goofiness | and the big 1-0 birthday for our oldest

If you like my daughter’s birthday cake, it’s from Sugarfuse, located in New Philadelphia Ohio. 🙂 It was just as yummy as it was pretty!!! 😉

Dover, New Philadelphia OH lifestyle newborn photographer | 11 days new leo

This family was referred to me by another local photographer, which I love so much and it makes me feel such happiness knowing they love my work enough to refer friends to me when it’s not in their genre of work.

I loved being invited to this family’s home for a lifestyle family session and to photograph their sweet newborn baby boy. Big brother was SO ADORABLE and I just wanted to hug on him and you can just feel the love he has for his new baby brother. I mean, look at him. 😉 So cute! Little Leo didn’t want to sleep much while I was there but I managed to get some sleepy shots in between his bright eyed expressions.
