welcome baby girl | cleveland, OH lifestyle newborn photographer

At home lifestyle newborn photography is so special for so many ways. I’ve already met so many families in the Cleveland area which I was honored to photograph. I don’t take this responsibility lightly one bit, in fact every single time someone books me without any outside influence, I am still floored by your trust. So, please know I will do my best to capture your story, your love and your new life in a beautiful natural organic way. All you have to do is show me the love and that is always beyond easy for parents during newborn sessions!

You may recognize these parents from my previous post. Take a look at their maternity session here. Now, they are holding their baby girl in their arms. To be able to photograph both of these stories-maternity and new parenthood is amazing. I especially love putting their album together with both of the sessions! Isn’t she the sweetest in her white bow cuddled between her parents?! She was one sleepy peanut for most of our session. When I arrived, the house was nice and warm and that is exactly how babies like it! It makes things run much more smoothly. Even their dog got in some shots which I love!

Thank you both for inviting me into your home and for choosing me as your newborn photographer!! Congrats!

six month old milestone baby session | cleveland, OH lifestyle family photographer

It has been a long time since I did a blog post! October to be exact! January is usually a month a family photographer takes some time away from the camera after the busy fall season! It was truly a wonderful one for me-the busiest thus far. I met many new wonderful families and reconnected with previous clients. The weather cooperated for most of my sessions and many beautiful memories were captured! This month I caught up on some personal photo projects, took a photography workshop and the dreaded-preparing to file my taxes!

Let’s get down to a little about this happy, adorable family of three. I had the honor to visit them in their Edgewater home the beginning of this year. Their little girl just turned six months old and was doing all the sweet milestones she is supposed to be doing! Grabbing her feet, blowing bubbles, clapping, laughing at her reflection, sitting like a pro and just being super CUTE! Her parents are completely in love with her and so was I by the end of this session! I especially adored the way she instantly smiled from ear to ear when she saw her sweet face in a mirror! It was hilarious and I’m so glad we caught it on camera because that is one of the things that would probably be easily forgotten but now it’s captured and will be remembered. :) I loved being in their home. I felt so much love and warmth between this family, it was truly a pleasure to spend some time together.

Thank you for choosing me to document your family story during such a wonderful moment in your life. All the best to you and hope to watch this little peanut grow!

Welcome baby boy-Shaker Heights | Cleveland, OH Newborn Photographer

A few weeks ago I was invited to do newborn photographs for a sweet family of three in Shaker Heights. They just welcomed their first baby and he couldn’t be any cuter. He was born after his parents waited 41 weeks for his arrival. The wait was so worth it!

These four (because we even had the fur baby is in the shots) were a dream to photograph! Little Gerard was the calmest, sleepiest newborn baby boy I have met. He pretty much slept through the entire session except for a short diaper change. Gerards nursery was in the brightest room of the house which gave us the prettiest natural light. I’m really curious how this little one will be in two years-still laid back and go with the flow how he was for this session or will the “terrible twos” kick in?! Either way, these new parents are so happy to welcome the little gent into their lives.

Thank you both for choosing me to photograph these beautiful first days with your son. Enjoy him!

two week old baby boy newborn session | cleveland, OH baby photographer

Having a newborn baby in the house is crazy enough to worry about other things such as  photography. A newborn photo session at home takes away some worries. It is in the comfort of your own home, the place where you and your new baby know most. It is personal and sentimental to the growing family. 

I was invited into this lovely families home in Shaker Heights a few weeks ago. In the beginning the parents were worried about the success of the session since little Thomas was uncomfortable and crying more than usual. Although this doesn't happen all the time, it happens quite often! The main reason why home lifestyle newborn session last up to two hours, is because of little surprises like that. You need time to change diapers, to breastfeed without hurry, to simply relax and calm down so you can enjoy those moments. Baby Thomas was snoozing halfway through our session and we were able to capture many sweet, loving memories. 

It was such a pleasure meeting all of you and thank you so much for inviting me into your home and trusting me with these moments!!

Family of Three-Baby Boy-Mayfield Hts | Cleveland Newborn Photographer

Newborn babies are so precious! I met this kind family of three in their Mayfield Heights home for a natural lifestyle newborn session. I love seeing the family so happy beyond words to welcome their tiny little babies into their lives. It really makes my job so easy because I am just capturing their love which comes so effortlessly in these sessions. This little guy is four weeks old in the pictures. For most of the time I was there, he was alert and so curious! His big interested eyes wanted to see everything that was happening! I really love the first photo below showing so much connection and love between the three of them, a priceless and classic moment. 

It was such an honor to be invited into your homes. Thank you for allowing me to photograph your special and very memorable life moments!
