Play Ball, Cincinnati Newborn Photographer

Here's another amazing at-home newborn session! I love giving this option to parents, as it's so easy to coordinate. You just let me know when to come, I do the rest! I'll bring all the props we need, a beanbag, soft blankets, and lights (if needed, sometimes I use window light.) The at-home sessions are perfect for families with older siblings because lets [...]

Jessi, Loveland OH Senior Portraits

Senior season is officially here! Every summer, the rising seniors turn to celebrate their upcoming senior year. We still don't know what that senior year will look like for the class of 2021, but we can certainly get a jump start on celebrating them! Senior portraits are a great way to kick off a teen's high school senior year. Sessions are completely custo[...]

Iris, Cincinnati Newborn Photographer

With a name like Iris, we simply had to use purple during this sweet baby's newborn photo session. Lots of purple. Little miss Iris was a dream to photograph and I know that she's absolutely cherished by her family. Mischief and Laughs Photography offers newborn photos both in your home and in my home studio - your choice! Studio sessions (like this one) [...]

I AM CHEESE DIP. (And so are you!)

I saw a meme. It was an uplifting thing declaring each and every person's worth. You know that free salsa at the table of nearly every mexican restaurant? Yup that stuff that you just can't help mindlessly eating until you really just aren't hungry for your entree anymore? Yeah, that stuff is fun to snack on, but honestly it's nothing to write home about. Bu[...]

COVID-19 Policies (This is hard, I'm a hugger.)

Guys, this whole virus thing is not fun. I'm missing my clients! I'm missing the creative process. I'm missing the hustle and the routine of work. And I'm missing the hugs. (But I guess that will have to be missed a little longer.) After consulting with medical professionals and listening to Governor DeWine's recommendations for best practices, I'm ready [...]

Little Brother, Cincinnati OH Newborn Photographer

I'm so happy this little guy got his session in before the virus-related shutdowns (I'm also heartbroken for my mommas who delivered just a few days later, as they didn't have the same chance.) As a Cincinnati OH newborn photographer, I'm subject to the stay-at-home order which forbids non-essential business from operating. It breaks my heart to cancel or re[...]

Quiet Morning in Home, Newborn Photographer

Adding a second baby to a young family is challenging. The toddler isn't much more than a baby himself. He just doesn't understand who this new little creature really is and why he's suddenly the center of attention. I know, I've been there. My oldest two are less than two years apart and while I loved their closeness, I appreciate the challenges of having t[...]

Wedding at the Sanctuary, Cincinnati Photographer

So you know that moment when the beat drops and the party goes from elegant and subdued to fun and vibrant? Yeah that happened shortly after the first dance ended during Carolyn and Robert's super fun wedding reception at the Sanctuary in Cincinnati OH. There's something super special about a wedding that can go from a beautiful heartfelt Catholic ceremony t[...]

Is a Documentary Wedding Photographer Right for You?

Wedding photographers run the gamut from beautiful airy posed portraiture that looks like it was pulled straight from a magazine to gritty, raw, unfiltered imagery of a candid-only reportage photographer with a truly streetworthy style. And I'm not judging ANY of that, because just like there's true love out there for everyone, there's also a perfect photogr[...]
