The Jones's Spring Family Portraits {Ohio Portrait Photographer}

For those of you who read my blog on a regular basis, you’ll recognize this clan. I met Melissa when I was in search of someone to split a box of paper with for my black and white film photography class at Columbus State. We’ve pretty much been partners in crime ever since. At least once a year (sometime more) we get together so I can take her family photos. Melissa started planning outfits when we scheduled her session. And as you can see, she did a great job down to the shoes and accessories! We went to Downtown Columbus and out to Ft. Hayes for this round of family photographs.

Melissa just blogged about how she prepared for her session and selecting what to wear for the whole family. I highly suggest stopping by her blog and reading it to assist you in planning your family’s portrait session. Check it out over to

Melissa brought her funky white chaise along for this first photo.

Little Brody lost interest quickly, so he didn’t make though the outfit change for this family photo.

I just love the old door behind them in this image, the older and more worn-out the better!
