welcome baby girl | cleveland, OH lifestyle newborn photographer

At home lifestyle newborn photography is so special for so many ways. I’ve already met so many families in the Cleveland area which I was honored to photograph. I don’t take this responsibility lightly one bit, in fact every single time someone books me without any outside influence, I am still floored by your trust. So, please know I will do my best to capture your story, your love and your new life in a beautiful natural organic way. All you have to do is show me the love and that is always beyond easy for parents during newborn sessions!

You may recognize these parents from my previous post. Take a look at their maternity session here. Now, they are holding their baby girl in their arms. To be able to photograph both of these stories-maternity and new parenthood is amazing. I especially love putting their album together with both of the sessions! Isn’t she the sweetest in her white bow cuddled between her parents?! She was one sleepy peanut for most of our session. When I arrived, the house was nice and warm and that is exactly how babies like it! It makes things run much more smoothly. Even their dog got in some shots which I love!

Thank you both for inviting me into your home and for choosing me as your newborn photographer!! Congrats!

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.

Baby girl on the way - Pregnancy Photography | Cleveland, OH Maternity Photographer

I hope you enjoy looking through these wonderful maternity session images. We captured these memories at the Cleveland Museum of Art at the end of May. Right now this gorgeous mommy-to-be already has her little girl at home and she's two months old! The quote "the days are long but the years are short" is not a lie. My oldest started Kindergarten yesterday and I am a basket full of emotions. Where has my little baby girl gone, when did this happen, her baby book is officially complete, she's wearing a school uniform, she needs her mommy a little less and I could go on and on. The point is that these moments with a newborn, infant, toddler and then preschooler are so brief and so special!!! Take it all in and don't for a minute wish she was older already, sitting already, walking already, talking etc because it will happen with a blink of an eye! I promise you, it will. 

Maggie and I met while we both worked as Registered Nurses at University Hospitals almost 10 years ago! I am so happy for both of the new parents and wish them all the happiness as they walk through this awesome adventure together. Thank you both for choosing me as your maternity photographer!

Family of Four on Lake Erie | Cleveland OH Beach Portrait Session Photographer

This was the first time I did beach sessions in Cleveland and this location for sure will become a yearly event! Lake Erie is so beautiful with gorgeous beaches all along the coast line. It was a sweltering hot kind of day with full sun and not a cloud in the sky! To be honest I was a bit nervous how these would turn out. Would the kids be okay in the hot weather? Will the pictures look good in the full sun? But, everything was perfect! I couldn't be happier with how these turned out! The kiddos had a blast looking for sharks in the water ;), playing with the sand and climbing on the rocks. It was like a adventure with pictures along the way! 

I've photographed this family for the third time and every time they are a pleasure!! I especially love how Mom really does a great job dressing everyone in awesome outfits. They look comfortable and relaxed! I always encourage families to wear clothes that are easy to move around in because a family sessions with small kids are quick, fun and require a good amount of movement. They pulled it off so well! 

Thank you guys for another great session! Looking forward to the next one! 

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!
