jonathan + samantha + mattea {a family session}

Despite the cold and the snow this sweet little family traveled from Indianapolis to Cincinnati for a family session.  We were so happy and flattered that they did!  It was so wonderful that they were able to have gorgeous snow falling during their entire session.  It was beautiful!

Just look at this precious family……

Since it was so chilly, we shot some of the session inside the Krohn’s Conservatory near downtown Cincinnati.

Meet little Mattea…the star of the show. :)

We instantly loved how lovey they were with one another.

Mattea just turned one, and she is so STINKIN CUTE!!  I could eat her up!

There was a little train going around, and she was growling at it as it went by. :)  I love this age.

A few upside down kisses…..

And then back outside we went!  I love how her little bear is in her photos.  That will probably be so precious to look back on.:)

A smile while walking with Daddy.

A family sqqquueeezzze!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE.  I think Mattea knows she is LOVED, and that is awesome.

After a while Mattea was almost finished modeling…so this is her “I’m done” face. I don’t blame her, it was COLD!

I took Mattea to see the ducks and  Brett got some of just Jon + Sam.  They are adorably in love.

They told us the story of how they met….on a school trip in Italy.  (Che romantico! Sorry if I botched that.)

So sweet.

One of my absolute favorites of the session.  Moments like this are what make our jobs the best ever.  (Mattea’s hair and all!!)

While I was taking photos of mom and dad alone, Brett was getting a few pointers from the expert.

Thanks Samantha, Jonathan and Mattea for traveling to Cincy and braving the weather to have us do your session!  We really enjoyed getting to know you guys, and you are such an adorable little family.  :)

SamandJon - Jess & Brett. Thanks so much for making what could have been an intimidating experience so much fun! We know it isn’t easy to get great photos of two not-so-photogenic people and a baby, but we absolutely love these photos. Thanks again for spending the day with us.

Amanda - Siding with Jess on this one–what a BEAUTIFUL family! The snow is just too perfect too. The couples shots are also very sweet; once a little one comes along, those seem to be a rarity. ;)

Barb - I just found you two tonight ~ holy smokes, I love your work! You make Cincinnati look so chic. I’d love to know where you do some of your more urban shoots. Cheers from another Cinci photographer (I do mostly commercial non-profit work, but love taking shots like you two are doing!).
