Every once in a while you get a friend who consistently comes alongside you in support and care. Hayley has been that friend to me. When I was first leaning into photography, Hayley was so sweet to step in front of my camera so I could practice. A few years ago, I photographed her wedding to James. Now they are parents to a beautiful little girl named Eleanor. It seemed only right to give them portraits of this next stage of their family.
We went to Old Slate Farm, a sheep and flower farm outside of Columbus to document them as new parents. The owner of Old Slate, Katie, is a talented flower farmer and floral designer. She makes gorgeous bouquets and centerpieces for brides in the Columbus area. You’ll spot a stunning custom bouquet she made for this portrait session in some of the photographs as you scroll down.
I knew any baby with Hayley and James’ DNA would be adorable, but there’s no doubt Eleanor is even cuter than I imagined! Her long wild hair and perfect smiles will just melt you. Get ready to fall head over heels for this little one!!
