JC - Originals Photography


Hello and welcome to my blog!

This is where I share sneak peeks with my clients and tidbits of my family through photography. I'm very blessed to be doing what I've always wanted to do... stay at home with my 3 beautiful children and photograph those around me; all with the support of my loving husband. In the meantime, sit back, relax and enjoy a little bit of us and my photography! Oh and I love comments... Let me know you're reading and what you like about it!

Such a pretty face...

Yesterday I got the honor of photographing a new baby girl for some friends of ours that we have known for several years. It was such a nice and enjoyable experience too! The princess's grandparents were there and they were so nice... Then big brother was there--he was helping me with some of my things and talking to me about his baby sister (this is his 2nd baby sister). Big sister was at school, but I'm sure she's going to be a great big sister! So--onto the baby girl--kind of rambling here! She was so sweet--and really such a pretty face. She actually favors her big brother quite a bit!

Here she is... She's was pretty happy to meet me! Or she's just happy to be here with such a great family --this was literally the first picture I took!

Mom was telling me how long her fingers were, so I tried to capture that for them to remember...


Isn't her face just perfect?

Little back creases... And that lip!

A sweet blanket a loving relative made!

Then--how about this one! Another handmade ensemble. Loving the bright colors--goes perfect with that cute face!

She really is a happy baby! This was mom's bonnet and if I remember correctly, she carried it in her wedding too as a hankie.

In Daddy's arms...

Little Traveler...

Peaceful in momma's arms.

Perfect little toes!

Her very much adoring parents!

Thank you S family for having me out... Miss K is absolutely precious and I hope you enjoy your sneak as much as I enjoyed capturing this moment of her life for you.


Officially ONE Now!

Mr. L turned one last week and yesterday we did our final session of his Baby Plan. Wow! I cannot believe a whole year has passed. It's amazing to see this sweet little newborn has turned into this sweet little boy. I'm so glad to have been a part of it and love that I was able to capture this first year for his family... We started our session outdoors and then went back to the house to do the indoor stuff, cuz we have to do a cake smash for that first birthday!

One of my favs! Literally one of the first ones we took too!

He looks so little here, but he's actually gotten so big from a year ago!

A little break to eat some rocks...

There we go!

He even sampled the greenery (ha), but I'll just share the smiling one.

Such a little man!

Quick pit stop at an old garage for some birthday fun... Love my new '1'!

Finally--the car!

I think he liked it...

Love this! His little legs straight out...

Standing is so fun! I hear he's taking steps, but prefers to crawl since he's faster at it--just wait, he'll be running before you know it!

Then, the long awaited cake! Before...


And after!

I'd say that was a success! Thank you R family... I am more than honored to have been a part of Mr. L's first year and look forward to celebrating many more birthdays with you all!

*Oh and my neat 1... The husband of one of my closest friends made it for me. He does some pretty great work if you're looking for ironwork. Here is his info...

Absolutely stunning...

When I met this family yesterday I was absolutely amazed at how stunning Miss Ella is... Her eyes are the kind that draw you in--they just shine! She was a doll too, so laid back, several outfit changes, several different settings and she just went along with it all. She even took a catnap on daddy's shoulder, woke up for a few more pics and was good to go! Love it! I think I could have taken her home with me. ;-)

See--she was happy from the very beginning!

So pretty...

Even when she wasn't smiling, her face was just adorable...

She loved her Momma!

Her daddy too!

I try to get a walking pic at every session... I just like the serenity of them!

Close-up FAV! There's those eyes--not to mention the precious little lips.

The family.

And the princess!

Love the water falling behind her!

Tu-tu Cute!

Basket time... As I turned around after snapping these, I noticed Miss Ella had an audience (snapping her pic too)! They were oohing and ahhing over her...

Her faces were hilarious! The wind kept taking her breath away.

This was after her catnap while walking... Happy as can be again!

One last one--the flowers were just too perfect of a match for her outfit!

Thank you G family! I enjoyed meeting you all--you have a beautiful family.


A long awaited session...

Finally! Let's just say that probably a year ago this family contacted me for a session and weather/schedules were not on our side! Well, we finally gave it a break and decided to try for this Spring... And we did it! The rain came last weekend, we rescheduled for the 4th time, I think and today the blue skies prevailed and we were able to do our session. Woo-hoo! I think we can all breathe a sigh of relief, especially once you see the gems we got...

I really love all the neat architecture at the Arboretum... Not just the landscaping!

Love these--especially little brother looking up to his big brother!

Right after this, the boys immediately started saying, 'Ewww!' Ha!

Daddy and his Little Men

Handsome, huh?

This little guy liked to gross his brother out too, though!

A momma and her boys--nothing else like it!

Talk about fun!

Thank you C family! I hope you enjoy this sneak... There were so many great ones, I had a hard time choosing, so I just decided to share a bunch! I'll be in touch.

Anyone else interested in Arboretum shoots--let me know! I hear there is going to be a Peter Rabbit's Flower Village coming in May - July...
