Morgan | Columbus Ohio Newborn Photographer

Baby #3 | Columbus Ohio Newborn Photographer

One of my dearest friends welcomed her sweet baby girl into the world and I was honored to photograph her a few days later. I always enjoy photographing newborns, but it is extra special when I get to photograph my friends and family members. Morgan has two older brothers to protect her and take care of her. My friend is one blessed momma!

Qualified Newborn Photographer | Columbus Ohio Newborn Photographer

It’s Official!

In July of this year I applied to become a qualified newborn photographer (QNP) through the Accredited Professional Newborn Photographers International (APNPI). I’m going to be honest, I didn’t think I would pass the first time I tried.

The application process included answering questions and submitting over two full galleries worth of images. I had to display skills in lighting techniques, camera functions, and artistic composition. I also had to show that I was able to consistently produce high quality images through a variety of circumstances.

Over the past few weeks, I have been periodically checking in on the status of my submission. This past Thursday, I was surprised to see “Congratulations on a successful QNP submission!”. I couldn’t believe my eyes. It didn’t seem real. How could I have actually passed?

From the official press release:

“The Accredited Professional Newborn Photographers International (APNPI) is proud to
announce Brittany Lytle of Joyful Moments Photography, Galloway, OH, US, as a Qualified Newborn
Photographer certificate recipient. Brittany Lytle’s successful submission was chosen along with a select
number of others deserving of the QNP title placing them amongst an elite group of photographers
worldwide who currently hold QNP certifications.”

Brielle | Columbus Ohio Newborn Photographer

Brielle | Columbus Ohio Newborn Pictures

I always enjoy photographing newborn babies. However, photographing this little girl was extra special because Brielle is my cousin’s little girl. Born on August 8th, weighing just 6 lbs and 13 ounces, she is already very loved.

Will | Columbus Ohio Newborn Photographer

Will | Columbus Ohio Newborn Photography

I have had the honor of working with this family since before big sister was born and have photographed them more times than any other family. When they told me they were expecting baby #2 and they wanted me to photograph these special moments, I was beyond excited! I can’t wait to continue working with them as I photograph all of Will’s first year milestones.

Will is named after his great grandfather on his dad’s side. What an honor! I am certain he has some big shoes to fill. No doubt this little man is meant for great things. He was a champ for his newborn session and slept through the entire thing.

London | Columbus Ohio Newborn Photographer

Sweet little One | Joyful Moments Photography – Columbus Ohio Newborn Photographer

This cute little man weighed in at 8 lbs and 10 oz when he arrived on May 4th, 2018. A week later I was blessed to have him and his parents in my Galloway, Ohio studio for his newborn session. In an email mom later commented, “you handled him so well and he just slept through the session!” I always give my clients a newborn session guide to help them best prepare for their session and this family followed it so well. Because of that, little London snoozed the entire time and let me take lots of pictures. He even gave me a smile! This ended up being mom and dad’s favorite picture… and mine too.

I always love when mom and dad decide to jump in for a few pictures. Long after your baby is too big to hold in your arms, you still have these pictures to look back on. These are such sweet moments to cherish.

Asher

This little guy’s momma is a dear friend of mine. I was blessed to photograph him when he was just a few days old. He is already growing so much and has turned into quite the chubby little man.

Paxton

I had a new babe scheduled for a photo shoot but unfortunately mom had to cancel due to health reasons. So, I decided since I already had everything all set up anyway, I would do a model call. Paxton’s mommy volunteered her sweet little boy and I am so glad she did.

Our Newborn Pictures | Columbus Ohio Photographer

Josiah James | Our Newborn Pictures | Columbus Ohio Photographer

During the second week of my son’s life, he hit a growth spurt that caused him to want to eat almost constantly. Due to his desire to eat every time I got near him and because of my own recovery, I was unfortunately unable to photograph my own son’s newborn pictures. Thankfully, I was able to find a local photographer with an opening. Christa of Gable Photography was kind enough to squeeze us in for a last minute newborn session. Here are a few of my favorite images from his session.

Surviving the First Two Weeks | Columbus Ohio Photographer

Newborn baby | Surviving the First Two Weeks | Columbus Ohio Photographer

During the first two weeks as new parents, we learned a lot. For example, we learned that we can go a lot longer without sleep than we ever thought possible. We also learned how blessed we are to have each other. I have fallen even more in love with my husband since sharing the experience of becoming parents. There is no way I could have done this without him.

In the first two weeks while I was still recovering from child birth, Jay helped me in more ways than I can count. From warming up meals and running errands to feeding me while I fed our son, there was nothing he wouldn’t do. He was also a wonderful emotional support while I adjusted to being a mom. If I had to describe my husband in just one word, it would be selfless. My favorite part of those first two weeks was watching how amazing my husband was with our son. He loved taking photos of him, holding him while he slept, and simply watching everything he did. It was clear that he was completely in love with him.

Below is a collage of several of the cell phone pictures Jay took of Josiah. Note: not all photos were taken in the first two weeks.
