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!

Family of Four on Lake Erie | Cleveland OH Beach Portrait Session Photographer

This was the first time I did beach sessions in Cleveland and this location for sure will become a yearly event! Lake Erie is so beautiful with gorgeous beaches all along the coast line. It was a sweltering hot kind of day with full sun and not a cloud in the sky! To be honest I was a bit nervous how these would turn out. Would the kids be okay in the hot weather? Will the pictures look good in the full sun? But, everything was perfect! I couldn't be happier with how these turned out! The kiddos had a blast looking for sharks in the water ;), playing with the sand and climbing on the rocks. It was like a adventure with pictures along the way! 

I've photographed this family for the third time and every time they are a pleasure!! I especially love how Mom really does a great job dressing everyone in awesome outfits. They look comfortable and relaxed! I always encourage families to wear clothes that are easy to move around in because a family sessions with small kids are quick, fun and require a good amount of movement. They pulled it off so well! 

Thank you guys for another great session! Looking forward to the next one! 

welcome baby sister-chagrin falls | cleveland, ohio newborn photographer

I met this wonderful family at their Chagrin Falls home for a lifestyle newborn session a few weeks ago on a beautiful summer day. The moment I walked in their house, I felt so welcome and at ease. The love and happiness every single time a new baby is welcomed, can not be hidden. It radiates through everyone, despite the sleep deprivation and extra dose of exhaustion! The two little girls were so sweet. Big sister could not be any more tender with her tiny 10 day old baby sister. She gently stroked her head, delicately counted her little toes and held her in her arms so protectively! 

I have to say this felt like a easy, pleasant Sunday morning. Most of my newborn sessions are scheduled around 10 to 11 AM. Babies and siblings are rested, calmer and most patient during those early day hours. When I arrive, mom is usually getting ready or nursing her baby. Dad is trying to get things in order. Everything is just how it should be. 

There are no rules and no expectations from me. We follow what the newborn baby wants to do. If she or he needs to be nursed, we let it happen as many times as we need to. Along the way, I take photographs of amazing sweet memories! 

Thank you so much for inviting me into your home! It was such a pleasure meeting all of you. What an honor to do this for you and all, always.

family of nine-cleveland museum of art | ohio family portrait photographer

This family photography session was absolutely fantastic! We met in the evening at Cleveland Museum of Art Wade Lagoon in the evening when the sun was just coming down giving us amazing light! Christina, one of the daughters of these lovely parents reached out to me when we still had snow outside and finally we met! Since there are seven siblings, it was a little hard getting everyone available at the same time but they did it and the results are beautiful! Everyone looked so good! The light pastel colors all the ladies were wearing looked so feminine and really enhanced their beauty. The guys dressed extremely well and all had big smiles and good humor to share which sometimes can be a little challenging for men during photo sessions. 

I have to mention these amazing parents. As a  parent myself, I know how challenging it can be to raise children but I only have two and will probably keep it at two. This family has seven children and from the short time I was able to spend with them, everyone was such a pleasure! This is a very kind and truly loving family! I don't have to go on about that because its all visible in the photos! 

It was such an honor to capture these memories for all of you! Thank you so much for choosing me as your family photographer!! Hope to do this again! :) 

extended family portrait session in lyndhurst | cleveland, ohio lifestyle photographer

These two,  still very in love, can be extra proud of the family they created. I met this wonderful family in their Lyndhurst home a few weekends ago for a extended family photography session. Everyone is a little spread out all over the country, some still live here in Ohio, some in Illinois and some in Michigan. It's been a long time since everyone was TOGETHER. So, I agree that this session was a must! Plus the grandparents will be celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary soon and what a great idea it is to capture some beautiful memories. Everyone looked so good in their coordinating and thought out outfits. The photos look sharp and free of any distractions! I was so impressed with how great the grandmother looks. I'm not going to reveal how old she is, but lets just say she looks very good for her age! Also, if you feel discouraged and think this is too hard to do with your family-don't. This particular session took only 20 minutes and there are plenty of great photographs! 

It was such an honor to do this for all of you!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for choosing me as your family photographer for such a special family event!
