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!

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!

christmas family session, chagrin falls | cleveland, ohio photographer

You can't tell by these sunny pictures but this was a chilly December afternoon in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. Little Sophie was all smiles and full of energy for me to capture! The Chagrin Falls square was beautifully decorated for Christmas abundant with garlands, christmas trees and red accents. Soon these parents are going to have bigger handful once Sophie becomes a big sister!! I am sure it will be one very happy and full of love family! It was a fantastic afternoon full of wonderful memories especially since this couple had their engagement pictures taken in the same location only this time with the addition of their cute daughter Sophie!

newborn baby girl | cleveland, ohio children photographer

Newborn photography sessions are so precious. Yes, they are challenging on a totally different level but with a extra reserve of patience and time the photographs are beautiful memories forever! I loved getting these sweet images of Cora. Her little fingers, tiny toes and sleepy face made my heart melt. I hope to do many more of these wonderful newborn shoots in the future!
