holiday mini session at sugar pines farm | cleveland, family photographer

These holiday mini sessions at Sugar Pines Farm in Chesterland, OH were just amazing! A gorgeous backdrop of pine trees covering a huge amount of land, the fresh brisk air, perfect sunshine! No props needed at all, except for these wonderful people!! Stella is one hard to get cookie but with this being my third time photographing her, I think we are on solid ground! Check out our previous sessions from one year ago and a half a year later. Her Daddy especially, one day will appreciate her independent and inquisitive nature! We had a lot of fun creating these memories. This family never disappoints in outfit selection because why not, you should look glam, fancy and gorgeous! Your photographs will look even more amazing! 

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Guys! Thank you again!!!!

Holiday Mini Session at Sugar Pines Farm | Cleveland, OH Family Photographer

Yes! It is finally December and we are all waiting for snow around here in Cleveland, OH! My Holiday Mini Sessions at Sugar Pines Farm were such a success! We've purchased our Christmas tree there once and since I have been in awe at how gorgeous the farm is! We had a spectacular day and even got lucky with some sunlight! It was a bit chilly, in the upper 30's but you can probably hardly tell! The jolly, merry mood was in the air and a little brisk air didn't stop anyone from sharing a few smiles and tender family moments. 

I've had the pleasure of photographing this sweet family last year and again this year. Their little boy is two years old. At first he wasn't sure about me and my camera but quickly that hesitation went away! I was happy to see lots of smiles from this sweet little boy and his wonderful parents. 

Thank you guys for choosing me again and Merry Christmas to all of you!!!

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!

family of 4- two brothers | cleveland, ohio kids lifestyle photographer

I met this family of four for a holiday photo mini session in November. Cleveland has so many unique and beautiful parks and this one is a treasure with an outside fireplace and many other lovely spots around as well! I went to high school with the mom in these pictures. We have not seen each other since we both graduated in the year of 2000! It was great to see her and meet her husband along with their handsome, smiley and very fun boys! 

I am in love with their golden hour family photography session! The light was soooo amazing and gorgeous and made these images truly magical. I know, I talk about light way too much but this is what makes an amazing photo! They are all glowing in these photographs! The yellow leaf foliage looked great with the red plaid they were all wearing. 

During all my family sessions, I try to make it a strong point to get a few pictures of just the parents. Chances are, they have not had a good photo together since their wedding day. It's important to capture them as parents, still strongly in love. Even more in love now, than before. I really love the third image in this gallery. It's such a real, authentic and happy moment both laughing as if I wasn't even there. To me, even though I hardly know these two, that image is a strong representation of who they are as people. I had a great time with them and hope to do this again! Thank you guys for the opportunity!!
