Best of 2019, Cincinnati Family Photographer

So it’s mid-February and I’m finally ready to share some of my personal favorites from the past year. This has been a landmark year for Mischief and Laughs Photography. It was my first full year back in the Cincinnati, OH area and I was blessed to be able to reconnect with long time clients and meet many new ones as well. This year I photographed over 75 families and a whopping 32 dogs! Not too shabby considering I took about 3 months off to work on restarting my business here in our new city – things really got off on the right foot, and I’m energized for the year to come.

Beyond the sheer numbers, I’ve grown in so many ways this year. I’ve focused my efforts more on telling the stories of families through play and emotion, and less on simply documenting what people look like. I’m looking forward to offering more experience-based portrait sessions, that will give new life to my work… and make the whole process exponentially more fun for my clients! Yes, of course we can get portraits along the way, but we’ll do it through a meaningful experience that produces memories for your family.

So what did I find when I pulled all of my favorites into one folder to review and sort? Well, first off, I loved way too many pictures. 162 to be exact – way too long for a blog post! So I had to be very selective. What did I see beyond that? Pretty light, lots of color, and dogs. But more importantly, I saw connection, love and laughter. I saw photos that maybe weren’t perfect but had so much emotion in them that they were absolute perfection. I saw moms snuggling their kids, siblings cracking up together, kids caught in moments of belly laughter. I saw confidence and pride in a high school senior, and I saw the silliness of dads.

So going forward? I’m going to challenge all of my clients to be a little more connected and a little less stiff. I’m going to challenge my clients to not worry about the perfect outfits or if your hair is getting messed up. I’m going to challenge myself to keep the session fun and engaging for everyone involved. I’m going to find some awesome little spots off the beaten path where we can have fun and not worry about waiting our turn in line at the most popular parks in the city (I’m looking at you, Eden Park.) I’m going to help each of my clients come up with something super personal for their session, a way that we can really make memories for your famsibling photo session, Cincinnati family photographer toddler girl pictures, cincinnati OH family photographer couples pose for a portrait at Ault Park in Cincinnati OH Cincinnati pet photographer, pet and children's portraits Spring Grove wedding portrait at columns in Cincinnati OH Large family pictures in Cincinnati OH Siblings pictures together Cincinnati OH Young girl portrait by Cincinnati Photographer Cara Harrison Newborn baby portraits, Cincinnati newborn photographer fun family pictures with happy children, Montgomery OH Catholic church wedding in Cincinnati OH, St Clare Church Spring Grove wedding portraits in the fall in Cincinnati oh Senior boy portrait session Dad holding a baby by Cincinnati baby photographer Cara Harrison At home session with Dog Newborn baby portraits, Cincinnati newborn photographer Mischief and Laughs Photogrpahy, Cincinnati OH mom and baby girl posing in the fall leaves mariemont Ohio Parks, Photographer session in mariemont extended family pictures with dogs, Blue Ash Summit Park in Cincinnati OH siblings portrait, child photography, Cincinnati family photographer cincinnati family portrait session, cincinnati OH family photographer dad with twin baby girls, Loveland OH family portrait photographer Sisters portrait, Cincinnati family photographer Mom and newborn, Cincinnati newborn photographer mom and baby portraits, Cincinnati family photographer Baby picture with butterfly, Cincinnati first birthday photographer first birthday pictures, cincinnati OH baby photographer Cincinnati wedding photographer, portraits outdoors Cincinnati nature center portraits mom kissing little boy on forehead, Cincinnati OH children's photographer little boys sibling pictures, Cincinnati child photographer maternity session indoors studio pregnancy pictures in Cincinnati dad holding and newborn, Cincinnati newborn photographer Puppy newborn portraits, Cincinnati newborn photographer Senior boy portraits in Loveland Oh Outdoor family pictures with spring flowers Mom and newborn, Cincinnati newborn photographer Newborn baby portraits, Cincinnati newborn photographer outdoor family pictures, Cincinnati OH two girls jumping during their family photo session in Blue Ash Spring blooms pictures with dog in Cincinnati OH Sharon Woods senior portrait session Cincinnati OH portraits outdoors, Cincinnati newborn photographer Wedding pictures after the ceremony in Blue Ash Ohio by Cincinnati Photographer sunflower pictures in Mason Ohio Newborn baby portraits, Cincinnati newborn photographer Cincinnati Ohio photographer takes outdoor family pictures with flowers Fun family pictures outdoors at a park in Montgomery Oh Mom and newborn, Cincinnati newborn photographer Holiday pictures, fun photo session Outdoor family portraits with toddlers in cincinnati Dog portrait photographer in Cincinnati, Snow Photo Session with dog dog and family portraits in Cincinnati Large family with six kids posing for a portrait in Cincinnati OH toddler boy pictures, cincinnati OH family photographer family pictures at a christmas tree farm, Cincinnati OH family photographer at home session with Mom and newborn, Cincinnati newborn photographer children portraits outdoors in Cincinnati OH family pictures laughing, Cincinnati OH family photographerily.
