Home for Christmas. Columbus Family Photography

The Rowe Family.


They seriously couldn’t be any cuter!


Kendall and Kinley.


We did this for Kinley’s Christmas session when she was about the same age as Kendall.  columbus_photography-5

This was Kinley a couple of years ago….

And we headed outside to a nearby tree “farm”.  Aka, the trees that were for sale in front of the local K-Mart.

Tell us a little about your family dynamic.  How you met your husband, how long you’ve been married, names and ages of the children.

We met at Coaches in Gahanna in 2008. We got married in 2012 and have since had 2 beautiful girls, Kinley is 2 1/2, Kendall is 8 months old.

If you had a $100 bill in your back pocket to spend on whatever you’d like, you’d buy…

Probably something for the kids 🙂

What are you looking forward to the most this holiday season?

The magic of Christmas now that Kinley is old enough to get excited for presents. Spending time with family and friends.

Are you more like your mom or your dad?

Haha! We have a joke in our house, if one of the kids do something rotten we always say “that’s your kid,” referring to the opposite spouse. And of course, when one of them does something nice or brilliant, we take total credit for that trait!

Do you have a funny story or something that happened with your girls that you’d like to share?

We haven’t had too many funny stories yet but we are so amazed at how their bond has already been established. Kendall laughs the most when Kinley is dancing around or playing with her. The first thing Kinley asks about every morning is “where’s Kendall?” 

What age/month has been your favorite for each child and why?

Kinley – Now. Even though behavior is challenging at this age, there is nothing more precious than cuddles when they actually have a choice. Kinley LOVES to cuddle. She will cuddle all day long. Also, the words and phrases that come out of her mouth crack us up. I love to listen to her “pretend play.”

Kendall – Now. Life just keeps getting better with her. She could start sleeping through the night though haha. She always has smiles for us and is so sweet. She rarely gets frustrated and is so patient. She says “dada” and her face lights up when mommy comes in the room. She loves finger food. This girl would eat all day long.

One word to describe each of your children is…

Kinley – determined

Kendall – calm
