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!

Fresh 48 Session Fairview Park Hospital | Cleveland, OH Newborn Photographer

I am so thrilled to show you this Fresh 48 Session which took place in Fairview Hospital. These are my absolute favorite to photograph because to me as a mom of two, those photographs are so, so precious, raw and just overflowing with effortless love!!! 

This little baby girl kept us waiting for her arrival for quite some time. I've been checking my phone eagerly waiting for the text "she's here!". She was most definitely worth the wait! When I photographed this Mom's maternity session, I remember her saying we still have so much to do before she gets here, including move into our new house! Well, she let Mommy and Daddy get ready just in time to move in! When I arrived at the hospital they have been parents for a good 48 hours already and they were so perfect at it! It always amazes me how natural parenting becomes once the baby is born. After all, all a baby needs is love and she has that in abundance! I am so glad I was able to photograph such timeless memories for them and I know these photographs will be treasured forever and will take them back to these moments whenever they look at them in the future.

Than you so much new parents and baby girl Laila for allowing me to photograph one of the best  moments of your life! Your beautiful little girl is so precious and you as parents are already so great! I am so excited for this new chapter in your lives! Your life has just begun and it will be such an awesome journey! I wish you many more wonderful and happy days and I hope I can be there to photograph even more of your amazing new life moments as a family of three!

family of three with baby girl in fairview park | cleveland, OH newborn photographer

Newborn photography is one of those events that may seem impossible to plan and coordinate but it doesn't have to be.  I met this family in their Fairview Park home and when I arrived, dad was still ironing moms blouse and I smelled coffee in the air. It was like hanging out around their house and simply taking some pictures here and there. It was so effortless and I came home with so many beautiful portraits of a new family of three. Baby girl was the sweetest little doll with her pretty head ties and fluffy tutu! She was all smiles and contentment. When she needed a break, we stopped to fill her up and all was good! Not every newborn session has to be done right away. This one was photographed at two months old. Parents are more accustomed, more relaxed and comfortable with their new role. 

So, if you want to wait to capture those precious newborn memories a little bit later than the recommended two weeks, it is a great idea!!

expecting baby girl | acacia reservation pepper pike | cleveland, OH maternity photographer

Are you thinking of getting a professional maternity photography session? If so, please don't hesitate! These gorgeous expecting mommy images were taken in Pepper Pike near Cleveland at my favorite park Acacia Reservation. My goal as a photographer and artist is to capture the remarkable woman that is carrying a baby. I personally loved being pregnant. I loved how I looked, how I felt and wanted to remember those short nine months in a beautiful way. I know this is not the story for every woman, but if you are even considering getting maternity pictures, then just do them! You will not regret them and you will have beautiful photography of yourself while carrying your child! Pregnancy is a miracle, a gift which I do not forget and take lightly. I will make you feel like the breathtaking woman you truly are!!

Daria looked amazing in this simple yet stunning long off the shoulder gown.  When she reached out to me, she said she wanted her photos to be taken in the snow. At that time we had so much snow, it didn't seem possible that it would not be there in a couple weeks. Either way, the images came out just the way I envisioned them. The simple, subdued backdrop of winter softly framed her pregnant body. I could tell these two are so in love by the way they looked at each other and just had fun and seemed so comfortable with one another. They will be awesome parents! 

Thank you guys so much for trusting me and allowing me to capture these moments of just the two of you for a little longer! It's an honor.

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.
