Feels Like Family | Britt Lakin Photography Dublin Ohio Family Photographer

I know it’s late.  I know I should be editing.  But I’m so busy, creating all this gorgeous stuff for some amazing people, and I want to share it!  I want to tell about these incredible people I get to meet!  I love this family so much.  I spend so much time with them, heck, I feel like a part of the family when I’m with them.  These are the kind of people that are hidden gems in our world.  They shine their hearts and they shine their love to others.  They want nothing, but to give.  Love them!  Seriously, I love my job so much.  I love getting to meet such beautiful souls in this world.  And I mean, how stinking adorable is this family!  Tiffany has such an eye for fashion & photography.  Someday, we shall be such good friends when life isn’t so busy.  We have SOOO much in common it’s kind of strange.  Anytime we are together we just want to talk, and talk, and talk.  About design, and gardening, and plants, and photography, and crafts for the kids, and ANYTHING because we have such similar interests!  We keep saying we’re going to have a day date to Oakland and shop for a couple hours.  Life gets so busy though.  It’s rush, rush, rush…from here to there.  And sometimes we don’t really get to stop, disconnect from “robot mom life”, and “plug in “ to what is happening RIGHT HERE.  RIGHT NOW.  And that’s what I want my images to do.  When you look at them, they take you back to that feeling.  Motherhood is SOOOO beautiful, and messy, and wonderful, and aggravating, and nourishing, all at once. BREATHE IT IN!

Love you, R Family!  And Tiffany, Oakland IS happening!

Grant | Dublin Jerome High School Senior Portraits

What a fun night with Grant for his High School Senior Portraits!   Grant’s mother, Kim, has some friends that are clients of mine, so I was honored that she trusted me to document Grant’s Senior year!  Not only did his mom join for his session, but so did his dad! I love how family centered this amazing family is!  You could really feel the love.  🙂 Having a son myself (also named Grant!) I could see myself in Kim’s shoes and I might have started to get a little teary eyed after this session…it’s only six years away!  Time really does fly.  I can tell his family is really going to miss him when he goes off to College, but what a great support team he has!  It’s so amazing to watch our kids grow and become strong, independent, individual souls with so many dreams!  Enjoy your senior year at Dublin Jerome High School, Grant!  Thanks for letting me document this special time in your life!


Anya | Dublin Jerome High School Senior Portraits

Anya was so excited for her Senior Session, and from the minute I met her, she captivated me with her glowing smile and sweet personality.  Her smile can light up a room!  We had such a great time finding spots for the rustic country style she wanted.  What style and grace she has!  We chased the light, maybe got in trouble from a park ranger (oops, sorry!), and even had her mom “break” into my house to find the perfect color hat.  What an amazing session with an amazing young woman!  Enjoy your senior year at Dublin Jerome, Anya!

Hannah | Hilliard Senior Portraits

I have been photographing Hannah’s family since 2010, so when her mom asked me to do her Senior Portraits I:

1) Couldn’t believe how fast time has flown and that Hannah was a Senior

2) Was so excited to photograph this independent, smart, beautiful young woman!

We met at Park of Roses after a beautiful sunny day, however as we pulled in, dark storm clouds were looming overhead.  So we did half of her shoot and then came back another night for round two.  Thanks for taking the time to do a second round with me Hannah!  I had fun getting to know you and wish you all the best for your bright future!

Jane | The Wellington School Senior Portraits

When Jane’s mom emailed me to photograph her youngest daughter, Jane, I was so excited!  I created senior portraits for her older sister Kate and I know how sweet and fun this family is!  We had fun exploring Powell and creating these beautiful portraits for Jane’s high schools memories!  Jane is such a sweetheart!
