Family of Five + Baby Brother-Shaker Heights | Cleveland, OH Newborn Photographer

I met this awesome family of five and their almost four month old baby brother in their Shaker Heights home last week. This was their newborn photography session even though their little boy is not such a newborn anymore. I've mentioned before, a newborn session does not have to be done in the first weeks of life at all. Mostly because my style is very natural with little, if any posing at all and I don't need the little baby to sleep to capture posed newborn portraits. Therefore this family was able to adjust to being a family of five allowing me to capture some loving and very tender moments between all of them. 

When I arrived, Mom was taking a nap on the couch with her sleeping baby son. The siblings were  doing their own thing and Dad welcomed me at the door. Quickly the house turned from quiet to laughter, silliness, hugs, a little chaos but the good kind! I loved that this session was so natural and effortless. There was no pressure to be or look perfect. The kids did what kids do. Mom and Dad simply sat back and absorbed what was in front of them-their three amazing and very happy children! I feel like I got an honest glimpse into what their life looks like everyday. 

Thank you for inviting me into your home to capture these family memories. Thank you for being so real and raw and allowing me to photograph your moments, your story. It's an honor, always!

big brother and little sister-sibling cuteness | cleveland heights, ohio family photographer

The Heights meaning Shaker Heights, Cleveland Heights and University Heights is full of charming parks for beautiful family photography! I met this family back in November on a gorgeous sunny day! They are no strangers to me because this is the third time I photographed them and this time with a sweet addition of a little sister! Big brother couldn't have been more handsome and loving! He spoiled his sister with hugs, kisses and so many smiles!! Instead of just the parents and kids at the session, even grandpa joined us for a few lovely captures! I always love when grandparents come because these photos are extra special and such wonderful memories for a lifetime! I know these parents are overflowing with gratitude and love for this cute bunch and I'm sure their house is always full of giggles and lots of laughter! So much joy to watch this family grow! Thank you again for entrusting as your family photographer!

family of three-one year old boy | cleveland, ohio kids lifestyle photographer

As a family photographer, my number one goal is to create portraits that I believe have beautiful light but also that show real and genuine emotion and connection. Cleveland has so many options for great locations to capture family photography. This session took place towards the end of the day and we were loosing light quickly but what we had left, was amazing! It makes me feel so happy to hear my clients love their family portraits. When I shared a sneak peek with this mom, the first thing she said to me was "Where were you all my life" I giggled and wrote back "Luckily, the most important part of your life just started". This made me sooooo happy! 

This shoot almost didn't happen because I was too full to take them on but a last minute cancellation popped up and I wrote to Julie and asked her if she wants to take the spot. Her husband got pulled out of a Cleveland Browns game that day! He was not too upset because the Browns don't have that many winning games these days. I think what we did instead, was so much more fun and memorable!! It was a pleasure to meet you three and thank you guys for the wonderful opportunity!! Hope to do this again!
