baby girl turning one-family of three | cleveland, oh baby photographer

You need family photographs like this! Cleveland, OH has so many beautiful places with endless possibilities plus we have four seasons giving us even more options! These photos were captured in Rockefeller Park last fall. This little girl was just about to turn one! I know this adorable family very well because I’ve been friends with the mom for about 25 years! We are both Polish and came to the USA around the same time. Plus we both share a similar passion which is photography. So yes, we totally take pictures of each others families when we can!

I really love watching these two with their daughter. They are one of the most chill and relaxed parents I know and their girl is just like them! So cool, mellow and always smiling unless she’s sleepy or hungry! They are an outdoor family so she’s been on many, many hikes from very early on! Her dad even made her a balance bike since he is a biker! I can’t wait to see her take off on that bike maybe this summer!

Congrats guys on your beautiful little family!

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!

Welcome baby boy-Shaker Heights | Cleveland, OH Newborn Photographer

A few weeks ago I was invited to do newborn photographs for a sweet family of three in Shaker Heights. They just welcomed their first baby and he couldn’t be any cuter. He was born after his parents waited 41 weeks for his arrival. The wait was so worth it!

These four (because we even had the fur baby is in the shots) were a dream to photograph! Little Gerard was the calmest, sleepiest newborn baby boy I have met. He pretty much slept through the entire session except for a short diaper change. Gerards nursery was in the brightest room of the house which gave us the prettiest natural light. I’m really curious how this little one will be in two years-still laid back and go with the flow how he was for this session or will the “terrible twos” kick in?! Either way, these new parents are so happy to welcome the little gent into their lives.

Thank you both for choosing me to photograph these beautiful first days with your son. Enjoy him!
