grandparents and family session at cleveland, museum of art | university circle, lifestyle portrait photographer

The Cleveland Museum of Art is a great spot for family photography especially when the weather is not the best outside. I met this great family a couple weekends ago to capture some photos of all of them together as a celebration of the grandparents 80th birthdays. Right when we met, everyone was full of smiles and eager to start. My main priority for this session was to focus on the grandparents and make them feel most at ease. It's not easy being photographed to begin with plus being older has some limitations. I wanted to make them feel special and capture some amazing memories I know this family will treasure. The session also included children  and grandchildren. The gorgeous young lady is studying to be a pediatric registered nurse and of course I had some tips for her since I'm also a RN. Her two brothers were nothing but fun! I imagine this household to be very welcoming and cheerful. Even auntie and uncle came all the way from Austin, Texas for this celebration! Lucky for them, we didn't have any snow! 

It was truly an honor to photograph all of you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for entrusting me with your photographic memories. You have a beautiful family!

your story, your life, your memories | cleveland, ohio family photographer

Family photography is so important and my passion. It's not just about taking pretty pictures but about showing and preserving your story, your family memories, your love. Everyone is uniquely different and this is what makes us beautiful because we each have our OWN story.

Being photographed can feel a bit intimidating but don't worry, I have you covered. My number one goal is to capture YOU. So I want your kids to act silly and even "misbehave" a little. It's totally okay because that is you, the family you are right now. Do you have a favorite spot you like to hang out with the kids? Take me there and show me what it is you do. In fact, don't show me, just do what you do and I'll take the pictures. Yes, once in a while I will guide you and tell you where to stand but it will be so casual, you won't even notice the camera and sometimes you won't even notice me. Let's go to the park, to the playground, hang out at your house or backyard, or go have some delicious cupcakes in that neighborhood bakery! Whatever is meaningful to you, let's preserve it! 

So...

Do you want to capture your family the way you really are, the way all of you love each other? 

Are you attracted to more candid, lifestyle and a bit of portraiture photography? 

Do you want to see how beautiful your family really is? Because let's face it, we hardly have time to step back and notice the incredible love, authenticity and connection. I will. 

I will preserve your love. Your story. Your family. The way you are now.
