Furnished with love. Columbus Newborn Photography

Aubrey Nicole.  Newborn.


Born September 13th at 8:03 AM.  She was just a little bug weighing 5 pounds, 15 ounces and 19.5 inches long.


So I have to tell you the story behind this photo here.  Ashley and Dan just built their amazing dream house and are slowly furnishing the huge rooms with beautiful pieces.  This couch included.  As soon as I saw it, I wanted to use it for a pretty prop.  I mentioned a few times that this may not be the BEST idea with a newborn without a diaper but we thought she was asleep enough for a two second snap of the camera.  WE WERE TOTALLY WRONG.  Sorry, Kennedy’s.  But… isn’t this photo so worth the clean up?!  And I think you’ll forever remember the blow out when sitting on this beauty.  🙂

This was Momma’s bassinet when she was a newbie.


Behind the scenes with Crystal Jo Foto.  It isn’t always clean but we always make the magic with some pretty window light, a boppy pillow and a space heater.


How long have you been married and how did you meet? We have been married for little over 2 years. Dan and I met at work. We were both at that time working at the same hospital and we just so happened to hit it off and click, the rest was history!

Did you find out the gender? How did you come up with her name? No we wanted it to be a surprised and felt either way it was going to be a blessing and it didn’t matter to us what the gender was! I heard the name Aubrey before ever becoming pregnant and loved it and felt it was such a pretty name and liked it ever since! Daddy loved the idea of incorporating my middle name for our daughter, which is Nicole.

Is there a nursery or shower theme you’d like to share? As for nursery we are just getting around to decorating now since we now know we were blessed with a little girl. We are doing soft pinks and grays as the coloring and everything is now in the works!

A baby is here! What are you looking forward to the most? We are looking forward to watching her grow and teaching her everything we know and just loving her up! We are so excited to now be starting our family and can’t wait for it to grow!:)

You are a new parent. Give us the scoop. What has surprised you the most about parenthood? Any funny stories or first times, share with us. Considering Miss Aubrey is only 10 days old so far so good but I’m sure as time goes on there will be plenty of unexpected surprises and funny stories along the way! We are all adjusting well so far, just tired which I’m sure all new first time parents could relate!:)
