Dover New Philadelphia OH Photographer | Project 52 | imagination

Oh my word!!! This is a FUN theme!!! You’re for sure going to want to check out ALL of our blogs this week!!! 🙂

I really hadn’t messed around with this type of Photoshopping images so this took some playing and learning on my part. I love that it really pushed me out of my comfort zone!!

The first image I attempted was my oldest daughter, Emma, and her books. She LOVES to read so we wanted to document her in this stage. Her composite was fairly simple. I took a shot of the books stacked up and then I photographed her sitting on a stool and I combined the 2 with some behind the scenes Photoshop magic. 😉 She is so excited about her finished photo that she’s asked if I could print it as a poster for her bedroom. How fun!

First off, he’s 3 and he’s very much not a fan of my camera. He refused to wear the clothes I chose for him. And we ended up changing up the entire idea and instead went with whatever he decided to do. Isn’t that the typical life with a toddler? LOL I do love the end result though!! Don’t you? He giggles every time that he sees it too and says “Oh I’m small Liam! Look Mommy! That dolphin’s gonna gobble my fishie! Stay awayyyyyy shark! Oh no!” And then all of that is typically followed by “Let’s go! I want a bubble bath please!!!” Love this little boy and his fun imagination!!New Philadelphia Ohio childrens photographer 44663 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.com | Project 52: ImaginationIzzy Grace’s chalkboard image was the last one we got around to finishing. She and I discussed what we wanted to do at the beginning of the week but things kept happening and we would put it off another day for one reason or another. (Kind of like the same reason I have yet to call the Preschool up again to set up another date for a tour for Liam?! OOPS!). Isabella’s photo was a lot of fun to execute!! I knew that I didn’t want a generic chalkboard stock image in the background. I wanted it to be HER drawing. So she set to work on that this morning. Then immediately following a studio session on Saturday morning, I told her we would photograph her “flying”. And of course we needed to add in her beloved Duffy Bear who goes everywhere else with her. It’s only natural he would go on a flying adventure through her chalkboard drawing wonderland too!!! 😛Dover Ohio 44622 New Philadelphia Ohio childrens photographer 44663 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.com | Project 52: Imagination

Tuscarawas County Ohio baby + child photographer | Dover New Philadelphia OH | Mack + Hudson

We all know that 6 month baby sessions are high on my favorite things to photograph list. 🙂 Add in a sweet 3 year old brother and it’s a big win in my book! 🙂 Meet Mack (3 years old) and Hudson (6 months old). These adorable brothers recently moved to Ohio from Virgina along with their big sister and Mom & Dad. I get to see big sister again in just a few short weeks for her 6 year old studio session and Hudson’s 9 month milestone as well. 😀

I cannot get over Hudson’s flyaway hair-do! Can he be any more precious?! And Mack & his tie? I die. ❤

Fun tidbit: Mack has had his photo taken with the same tie for every milestone session beginning with his newborn shoot. The photographer they used in Virginia can be found here. She is pretty amazing. And that makes me feel even more special and happy that these little one’s Momma chose *ME* as their new Ohio photographer. ❤ Thank you Natisha!Dover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.comDover New Philadelphia Tuscarawas County Ohio baby and toddler photographer 44663 44622 | © Brandi Williamson Photography | www.brandiwilliamsonphotography.com

Dover New Philadelphia OH Photographer | Project 52 | selfie!

week 5 | selfie

It arrived. The week I was dreading. This week’s Finding Me: Project 52 theme is “YOU: selfie”. Don’t get me wrong, I love cell phone selfies. I take selfies with my kids or husband (does that count?), selfies with coffee, selfies with sunshine, selfies with new hair color or a cute style and whatever other random selfie mood might take over. But to take a selfie with my big girl camera… AND post it to my blog for everyone to see?! That’s different for some reason. It just IS! Thoughts ran through my mind…. “Be careful with the angle! Don’t show your double chin!” “Should I put more make-up on?” “Um I’m still holding my coffee cup….” “What about those dark circles and my scars?! Maybe I should edit those out…”

In the end I left all of it. I didn’t add anymore make-up than what I normally wear on a typical day. I left my dark circles because they tell a story of my life right now. Yes I have sleepless nights. I work late. I have 3 kids. I still have nightmares of my past. I have nightmares of what my mind makes up and the “what if….” takes over. Sometimes I just want to sit with my husband on the couch and mindlessly stare at the TV late into the night. Then I wake up early to start the day and get the kids dressed, fed and out the door to school. I left my scars because they tell a story of my past and what has helped shape me into who I am today. Do I feel beautiful? No. Do I feel like I look how I want to look? Absolutely not. Am I okay with all of this? Yes. I am more than okay with it. I am happy. I am blessed. I am loved. And that is beautiful. That is me.

Don’t forget this is our Finding Me: Project 52 blog circle. Visit Sarah Jastre Photography and see her take on this week’s theme. Please click through all of our links and leave us some love by liking and commenting on our posts, especially this week as it turns out selfie week was a difficult one for ALL of us to go through with. In discussing this week’s theme with each-other, we laughed, we cringed, we lifted each-other up, we cried, we criticized our bodies and we boosted each-other’s confidence. Why is it that we can so easily see the beauty in someone else but not ourselves? We, as a society, need to work on this. Let’s begin today.

New Philadelphia Dover OH Twin Newborn & Baby Photographer | twin blessings

While one baby can be difficult at times to pose and photograph, imagine photographing 2 babies! 😛 These twin babies are so gorgeous and snugly that I didn’t mind one bit. My approach to a twin newborn session is more simple and sweet. I aim to photograph the babies in natural and organic poses to keep the babies peaceful and comfortable. I call this shoot a win! Thank you Ashley for bringing in your precious babies and letting me play, snuggle and photograph them!!!

Dover New Philadelphia OH Extended Family Photographer | the family’s all here!

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!!

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.

Take a peek at some of my favorite images from Grayson’s 6 month milestone session. You can view his newborn here and his 4 month here.

Dover New Philadelphia OH Photographer | project 52 | up close

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.
