Every once in awhile I do extended family sessions and I usually get a little nervous beforehand because they can be a little chaotic. I feel like that impending chaos just makes the end result that much more satisfying. 🙂 This family was the sweetest! All of them. Some live here in Tuscarawas County and others were visiting over the Thanksgiving holiday. The visit was the reason for the photo this year. I was worrying a little due to the cold weather we were having but they were troopers! We arrived at Warther’s Museum & Gardens in Dover and got right to work. Lucky for me the kids were amazing too. Just look at that grin on their sweet baby girl!!! ❤ Plus they all looked amazing and that really helps as well!! Thanks Ellen for thinking of me to capture your beautiful family!!© Brandi Williamson Photography extended family photographer serving Dover (44622) New Philadelphia (44663) OH and surrounding areas in Tuscarawas County, Stark County and Northeast Ohio | To book your session contact me via my website’s contact page to reserve your appointment!
Cheeks. ❤ I just can’t even…. I am so thankful that Grayson’s family travels from the Canton Akron area to visit with me every few months while I photograph his milestone sessions in the studio. This baby boy always comes equipped with the perfect ‘melt your heart’ expressions. He’s going to be a little heart breaker one day with those puppy dog eyes.

week 4 | up close
This week’s theme was fun and allowed me to venture a bit out of typical portrait or lifestyle photography. I wracked my brain trying to come up with something super cool, but then I noticed how my plant looks with the afternoon sun coming in through the window. I kinda dig it (see what I did there?). 😛

Rider. ❤ Gosh, he is so darn cute! He was right from the start too of course. See for yourself and go look at his newborn session and his 6 month studio session too! See? Told you! Future heart breaker for sure. ❤ Now let’s talk about this awesome (and yummy!!!!) giant cupcake of his from New Philadelphia’s Sugarfuse. Have you been by their storefront in Bistro 131 yet? Try their buckeyes… Yummmmmm. Buckeyes are sort of my favorite everywhere though so I might be biased towards them. 😉Photographing studio and outdoor sessions in Dover, New Philadelphia, Bolivar, Canton Ohio and surrounding Tuscarawas & Stark County areas | 1st birthday smash cake studio session | © Brandi Williamson Photography
I love photographing 6 month studio sessions!!! Baby’s are always so happy at this age and their personality is really starting to show through. 😀 Grayson’s Mom went to the same school as me growing up in New Philadelphia. I am so happy her parents travel from Canton to my studio for each session and that I have the opportunity to reconnect with old friends through my photography. I mean, look at this chunky chubby sweetness here?! I couldn’t have a better job if I tried! ❤ ❤ ❤ This adorable-ness is part of my Baby’s First Year Plan which means I will get to see Gracie again at her 1 year session. I just know it will be here before we know it!Photographing studio and outdoor sessions in Dover, New Philadelphia, Bolivar, Canton Ohio and surrounding Tuscarawas & Stark County areas | 6 month studio session | © Brandi Williamson Photography
Week 3 | light
We haven’t had many sunny days lately with all of the cold and snow and ice so I jumped at the chance when I saw this gorgeous sunshine pouring in the window this week. My 3 old wasn’t exactly the perfect model I expected, but I like his take on the theme too. ❤
We’ve decided to turn our little project 52 into a blog circle too for fun and to help hold us accountable as the weeks go by. 🙂 Make sure you stop by Stacy Espinoza Photography next to view her take on this week’s theme. 🙂 After that, continue on through the circle until you get back to me! Don’t forget to leave us comments and “likes”. Thanks!!!© Brandi Williamson Photography | project 52 | light | Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio photographer
I miss Fall!!! The colors are so perfect for photos!!! I feel like we were deprived of a full Fall season this past year though. Lucky for myself and my clients, we did have a few perfect days for shooting, like this one for Zoey & Mitchell’s maternity session at the Norma Johnson Center located between Dover and Sugarcreek Ohio. If you think this a gorgeous couple… just wait until I blog their beautiful daughter’s studio newborn session. ❤

This little girl entered the world at just 4 lbs and has grown so much and is such a blessing to everyone around her. I can hardly believe she is one already! I’ve photographed her at newborn stage, 6 months and now 1 year! At this studio session we also grabbed a 3 generation picture with Anna, Mom & Grandma! How fun and great for her to have when she’s older to look back on. ❤
PS – Anna’s adorable pink ombre cake is from Kat at Camelot Cakes in New Philadelphia Ohio. Andddddddd…. DONE. 😉 ♪ It’s my party, and I’ll cry if I want to, cry if I want to, cry if I want to ♪I love doing these storyboard collages to document baby’s first year ❤ Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio first year photographer | studio photography | Tuscarawas County OH | © Brandi Williamson Photography
Anna’s parents chose to add a Smash Cake Mini to her regular 1 year session. If you’d like to book your own visit my website at www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.com or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Week 2 | white
We’ve had a lot of cold weather and some snow to go with it. Perfect timing for this week’s theme!!!! So the first day of snow, I went out to shovel snow but realized I didn’t have any boots…. It’s not every day you grab your 10 year old daughter’s boots to go shovel…. and they FIT. She is now officially too old for my comfort. She’s wearing women’s shoes and some clothes too. Oh my!The snow always looks so pretty and clean laying on top of plants and scenery. I’ve also been working on my composition this month in a workshop I am a part of this year. This month’s lesson is rule of thirds and general composition. The next 2 images follow the rule of thirds. 🙂 And this one is actually from last year, but I immediately thought of it when I learned of this week’s theme. 🙂 Isn’t he a cutie? © Brandi Williamson Photography | project 52 |white
This boy. He has all of us wrapped around his tiny skinny little fingers. ❤ The problem is, he knows it. 😉 He knows that we think he is just the funniest, cutest, silliest, smartest little boy in the world. And that, my friends, can be an issue. 😛 I mean, try saying no to him. It’s not easy. Don’t get me wrong, he hears the word plenty… PLENTY. He is just as rotten and ornery as he is adorable. 🙂 We wouldn’t trade him for the world! Liam James, you’ve completed our family and we all love you so much! Happy 3rd birthday baby! (okay, he turned 3 in September… but at least these photos were taken in October… that’s not too shabby for a photographer’s kid to have photos!) 😛
Oh and would you believe these photos were taken in approximately 3 minutes time (he had to pee LOL), and were at a random pull off on the side of the road that I deemed had appropriately pretty light? Well, it’s true. Sometimes they’re the best locations and shoots honestly! Quick and to the point!
The totally rockin’ awesome cool tee is from KATEKATIE. Please stop by and tell them I sent you!! 🙂
