Urban Turns 1 & His Promotion to Big Bro Status

In my time as a wedding and portrait photographer, I have been very blessed to meet so many incredible people. One of which is Markie. I first met Markie a few years ago during the first summer she and her husband, Drew, came to Columbus. Since then, they’ve come back to Columbus every summer for the Summer Sales season. Utah is quite a distance away from here, but I’ve loved following the both of them on social media and cheering for them a few hundred miles away. I always enjoy getting to see them when they come back to Columbus!

About a year ago, I was sharing my favorite images from Drew & Markie’s maternity session and now today I’m sharing my favorites from little Urban’s 1st birthday cake smash! Time flies, right?! And not only am I sharing photos of a cake smash, but I’m also sharing with you BABY GIRL OSTLER announcement photos! Markie shared this on Facebook not too long ago, but it’s always fun sharing more photos 🙂

And just in case you forgot how beautiful this couple is, let’s look back to their maternity session from last summer –

The picture perfect family right? Not only is this family good-looking, but they’re incredibly kind, generous, and amazing people. I’m so blessed to know them and consider them friends! It’s funny to say, but thank you, American Eagle, for introducing me and Markie that one summer a few years ago! Oh, the places  you’ll go …

Also, a huge shout out to ZURÏE for allowing us to use your studio for this session! I’ll definitely be bringing more of my clients to this cute, little industrial studio. If you’re interested in a session here, I’m so in!

Without further adieu, enjoy 🙂
