family of five at the museum of art | cleveland, oh lifestyle family photographer

The Cleveland Museum of Art Wade Lagoon is one of my favorite spots for family photography. This is the second time I'm photographing this family of five and this time their little boy was on the run! One of the best parts of working with families is the pleasure of watching everyones kids grow and change. Luckily the parents tend to stay the same :)! I loved the way Raechel looked in the long blue dress, if I could make all my Mamas wear dresses, I would!! The way I see it, is every day we mothers tend to our children with endless needs, sometimes we hardly have a minute to ourselves. A family session is an opportunity to feel special and to feel beautiful surrounded by the ones you love the most. You are the engines that make a family and home function and you deserve to feel and look like a goddess because you are!! 

We had a wonderful time capturing these memories. Surrounded by spring cherry blossoms and sunshine! Everyone was in a terrific mood which made this gallery full of smiles and tender moments. Thank you again for choosing me as your family photographer!!! It's always a pleasure and honor to photograph your family.

Expecting Baby Brother-Wade Lagoon | Cleveland OH Maternity Photographer

I am so proud to show you these! This maternity photography session took place in Wade Lagoon of The Cleveland Art Museum. The evening was perfect, the flowers were blooming and this family looked so good and happy!! 

I am so honored to call these lovely people my really good friends. They are expecting their second son very soon but before Max arrives, Mom wanted some family pictures of just the three of them. I met Alecia and David at the hospital when I was a nurse at University Hospitals. This was way before we had kids, way before those two were married to each other. And now here we are, good friends, they are married and expecting their second little miracle! It's really amazing how life works out and somehow connects us in unexpected ways. We had a nice evening together during our session. Jackson was such a good assistant whenever I needed an extra hand :) Plus he looked like such a grown up big brother already. I can not wait to see him love and play with his sibling very soon. I am certain they will be a terrific duo! 

Thank you guys again for allowing me to capture these very special memories for you!! Love.

Two month old newborn-Lakefront Nature Preserve | Cleveland, OH Baby Photographer

Before it was cold, I had the pleasure of capturing sweet photographs for a family and their newborn son that was two months old at the time. We met at the Cleveland Lakefront Nature Preserve on a gorgeous fall evening. Many of you may be under the impression that a newborn session needs to be done as soon as possible, preferably before the baby turns two weeks old. This may be the case for studio posed newborn photography. My style is more natural also know as lifestyle photography. There is no need to hurry. I don't need the baby to sleep so I can achieve those newborn posed shots. All I want is your family, your love and YOU. Those tender moments, details, feelings that you want to remember forever. 

I love that this family chose to wait until their son was a little older to have their newborn photos taken. We were able to have this session done in a beautiful location of Cleveland, Lakefront Nature Preserve. (BTW if you have not been there, you need to check it out! It's a gem!) I have so many favorites from their gallery of images but I was able to somehow narrow it down! So, a newborn photo session can be done in the comfort of your own home or if the weather allows, in the beauty of nature. Cleveland has many amazing locations to choose from!

holiday mini session at sugar pines farm | cleveland, family photographer

These holiday mini sessions at Sugar Pines Farm in Chesterland, OH were just amazing! A gorgeous backdrop of pine trees covering a huge amount of land, the fresh brisk air, perfect sunshine! No props needed at all, except for these wonderful people!! Stella is one hard to get cookie but with this being my third time photographing her, I think we are on solid ground! Check out our previous sessions from one year ago and a half a year later. Her Daddy especially, one day will appreciate her independent and inquisitive nature! We had a lot of fun creating these memories. This family never disappoints in outfit selection because why not, you should look glam, fancy and gorgeous! Your photographs will look even more amazing! 

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Guys! Thank you again!!!!

Holiday Mini Session at Sugar Pines Farm | Cleveland, OH Family Photographer

Yes! It is finally December and we are all waiting for snow around here in Cleveland, OH! My Holiday Mini Sessions at Sugar Pines Farm were such a success! We've purchased our Christmas tree there once and since I have been in awe at how gorgeous the farm is! We had a spectacular day and even got lucky with some sunlight! It was a bit chilly, in the upper 30's but you can probably hardly tell! The jolly, merry mood was in the air and a little brisk air didn't stop anyone from sharing a few smiles and tender family moments. 

I've had the pleasure of photographing this sweet family last year and again this year. Their little boy is two years old. At first he wasn't sure about me and my camera but quickly that hesitation went away! I was happy to see lots of smiles from this sweet little boy and his wonderful parents. 

Thank you guys for choosing me again and Merry Christmas to all of you!!!
