expecting baby girl | cleveland, OH maternity photographer

Maternity sessions are one of may favorites. This one took place in a beautiful Beachwood, OH park setting. I remember being so giddy with excitement when I started this session! Mommy to be looked so gorgeous in her off white dress with lace detail from Wren and Ivory . I just knew these images would be amazing since the sun was setting in the most perfect way giving us a dream golden hour session!! The couple also brought big sister along (doggy) for the shoot! I love when my clients bring their pets since they are also part of the family. They did ask a friend to help out with keeping the dog safe while not being photographed which was a great idea because they were able to focus on each other!

Pregnancy is not amazing for everyone but when it is and even if it’s not, I encourage you to capture these days in a memorable way. Make yourself feel special all day, let your husband or partner pamper you, take some pictures together and end the day with delicious dinner! You’ll remember how special this day was! :) And I promise, I will photograph you in a beautiful way!

Thank you for choosing me as you maternity photographer! It’s always an honor and I am so grateful.

Fall in the park with family of four in Beachwood | Cleveland, OH Lifestyle Photographer

I met this family in Beachwood, Ohio for a family lifestyle photography session. Let me just tell you. These parents have their hands full! These two little boys are full of energy, curiosity and adventure but only the good kind! Boys being boys at their best! This session started off really smooth but somewhere 3-5 minutes in, one was in complete tears. Can you tell?! Probably not. I kept telling the mom and dad not to worry-we are fine! Seriously, just let them do what they want to do and in between all that, I promise I’ll get at least a few good family photos!! This is one of my top favorite family sessions from this past year. I just love all the natural smiles and so, so much love between this fun loving family! Plus, not to mention the perfect fall evening with the most golden light a photographer could only wish for! Everything turned out beautifully and I can not wait to see these two boys the following year!

two week old infant boy from shaker hts | cleveland, OH newborn photographer

Just a few weeks before the holidays I was invited into this gorgeous Shaker Heights home. I met a adorable baby boy and his wonderful parents for a family newborn photography session. Shortly before the baby was born, the parents moved into this house and there was still some unpacked boxes laying around. Both sets of grandparents were also visiting and the house was full of love and maybe some chaos that comes with a new baby in the house (which I didn't notice at all! In the midst of all of this, Aurea the mother reached out to me and scheduled this newborn session. I'm always amazed when your life might be a little hectic, sleep-deprived and full of emotions, many of us still make the time to capture it! We want to remember all of this, the newness, the love, the tiny hands and fingers, the way we felt. That makes me so happy to know that and that is why I love lifestyle newborn photography because it's more natural, real and most of all, it's more YOU.

Family of Four with Two Daughters | Cleveland, OH Lifestyle Photographer

Family photography is my favorite for sure because it matters, it is important. We met at Acacia Reservation in Pepper Pike, Ohio on a gorgeous, really warm fall day! This family looked so good and their girls were extra sweet and ready for some pictures! We had a lot fun jumping, dancing and playing games! The light was just perfect! Just look at all the golden bokeh (the blurry speckles) illuminating this family! Everything looked so, so beautiful! I think these golden warm days are over for now in Cleveland and I seriously cannot wait for 2018 Fall Pictures!! I have big goals and plans! Till then! 

It was so nice to meet all of you! Thank you all for choosing me as your family photographer!

Family of Three-Baby Boy-Mayfield Hts | Cleveland Newborn Photographer

Newborn babies are so precious! I met this kind family of three in their Mayfield Heights home for a natural lifestyle newborn session. I love seeing the family so happy beyond words to welcome their tiny little babies into their lives. It really makes my job so easy because I am just capturing their love which comes so effortlessly in these sessions. This little guy is four weeks old in the pictures. For most of the time I was there, he was alert and so curious! His big interested eyes wanted to see everything that was happening! I really love the first photo below showing so much connection and love between the three of them, a priceless and classic moment. 

It was such an honor to be invited into your homes. Thank you for allowing me to photograph your special and very memorable life moments!
