I’m blogging!!!! I am so far behind on my blog, but my goal this winter is to get all caught up and keep my website up to date. My 2015 professional goal is to blog each session before I send of their gallery. Think I can do it? I sure hope so! I bought a super awesome program to help me with blogging photos called BlogStomp. So far I’m loving it! It is so easy to use and make prepping images for my blog a breeze.

So her is Alison and Geoff’s maternity session. I met up with them at Schiller Park for their session this summer to document the preparation for their little boy arriving soon. Little Leland’s newborn session is next up on the blog!

This was an extra special session for me to do. Beckett’s mama, Katie, was my son Landon’s preschool teacher 2 years ago. I also have known her my whole life. Our moms have been friends for ages and our dads used to play rugby together back in the day. In fact, Katie’s mom introduced my parents to each other! How cool is that? Katie is an amazing special needs teacher and played a big role in our lives as we started our journey navigating the special needs world. She was Landon’s advocate and helped us be his advocate in ways we never knew. You could just tell how much she loves the children she works with, including Landon. I will forever be grateful for all that she has done for him. She is amazing.

So, when Katie announced she was pregnant with Mr. Beckett, I knew I needed to photograph her baby. Boy, is he a cutie-pie! The poor bubs broke his collar bone during delivery, so we were a little limited on the poses I could do with him. But we still got some amazing images from his session. This session was also pretty special because he was the first newborn for me to photograph in my new studio space! I was so excited to use my new barn wood I have working hard on prepping. It turned out amazing and I’m really looking forward to using this space. My sister-in-law came over during his session and took some behind the scenes pictures and videos, which I’m looking forward to putting together a little project with. Come check out sweet little Beckett’s session!

Sweet little Chase was a dream for his session… well the beginning of his session. He slept like a champ, was easily soothed and let me do lots of setups. By the end of his session he was ready to eat and snuggle with his mama. But who can blame him? There is no greater place than in your parent’s arms.

There’s going to be some big changes with Leah Harms Photography this year. The biggest change is that I am switching to working out of my home studio! I am so excited! All my supplies will be on hand as I need them and my lighting will be able to be consistent (which is a huge benefit!) I’m also working on a fun video project with my sister-in-law for my business. Be on the lookout for it in the next month or so. I can’t wait! In the meantime, check out Chase’s session below. You won’t be disappointed you did:)

Duck Creek Log Jam | Columbus Family Photographer

We spent the weekend at the Duck Creek Log Jam music festival down in Hocking Hills over Memorial Day weekend. Boy did we have a blast! My husband and I took our 4 year old son Landon to the festival for his very first camping trip. Despite waking up to a very leaky tent (clearly the rain fly is no longer waterproof) we all had tons of fun sleeping in a tent. We took some time to go hiking in the beautiful Hocking Hills. Landon enjoyed climbing around the rocks and into the caves. But, the best part about the weekend was the music and the incredibly yummy food. They brought in some of the best food trucks I’ve ever eaten from: Paddy Wagon, Smok’n Cantina, and Chelsea’s Real Food. My favorite of the weekend was the brisket sandwich from Paddy Wagon’s. We will definitely be visiting their food truck again when we go downtown. Smok’n Cantina’s quesadillas and their basil lemonade were a hit with Landon.

Our favorite band of the weekend is probably the Hocking River String Band. We bought their CD and Landon has been requesting to listen to “Duck Creek music” ever since:)The lead singer of the band as well as one of the gals from Salty Caramels (Molly Winters) did a music jam with the kids too. That was a big hit with all the kids, and Landon thought it was so fun to hear kids songs that he was familiar with. He had brought along his ukulele and was rocking out to the music all weekend long. He also had to have on his headphones while we were listening to music. He was able to take them off when we were at the campsite, but the music was too much for his sensitive ears and nerves. Landon has sensory processing issues, so loud and unexpected noises are overwhelming for him. He loves to be around things that make loud noises like garbage trucks, lawn mowers, leaf blowers, and construction vehicles, but can only do so with his headphones on. Once they are on, they block enough noise out that he is able to relax and feel comfortable in his surroundings. I’m thankful he’s still able to participate in things he enjoys (with some accommodations) even though the noises are overwhelming for him.

There will be another Duck Creek Log Jam this fall, and we are hoping to be able to make it for another weekend of camping, music, food and fun! Check out the pictures I took at the festival below!
