Baby girl on the way - Pregnancy Photography | Cleveland, OH Maternity Photographer

I hope you enjoy looking through these wonderful maternity session images. We captured these memories at the Cleveland Museum of Art at the end of May. Right now this gorgeous mommy-to-be already has her little girl at home and she's two months old! The quote "the days are long but the years are short" is not a lie. My oldest started Kindergarten yesterday and I am a basket full of emotions. Where has my little baby girl gone, when did this happen, her baby book is officially complete, she's wearing a school uniform, she needs her mommy a little less and I could go on and on. The point is that these moments with a newborn, infant, toddler and then preschooler are so brief and so special!!! Take it all in and don't for a minute wish she was older already, sitting already, walking already, talking etc because it will happen with a blink of an eye! I promise you, it will. 

Maggie and I met while we both worked as Registered Nurses at University Hospitals almost 10 years ago! I am so happy for both of the new parents and wish them all the happiness as they walk through this awesome adventure together. Thank you both for choosing me as your maternity photographer!

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! 

Family of Four-Two Sisters-Fall Session | Cleveland OH Family Photographer

Hello! Thanks so much for taking a look at my work! I had the pleasure of photographing this wonderful family in Acacia Reservation on a gorgeous sunny fall afternoon. I was so smitten with these two sweet sisters. They were full of smiles and ready for a fun adventure in the park. The matching dresses they were wearing coordinated perfectly with the tall yellow grass and wildflowers in the park. They had fun making pretty bouquets, throwing leaves in the air and gifting their beautiful Mom pretty flowers. I love when Grandparents join the session because it makes it even more meaningful and memorable. The love in this family is so beautiful. I just love how everyone is cuddling on the blanket and simply enjoying each other. 

Thank you so much for a wonderful session and hope to see you again soon! Thank you all.

family of five with three beautiful daughters | cleveland, oh lifestyle portrait photographer

This gorgeous family photography session took place in Pepper Pike near Cleveland in one of my favorite locations. I am so honored to do this for families and every time a friend or co-worker asks me to capture their family as well, I admit it makes me thrilled and a little nervous at the same time. For some reason the pressure to do well is even stronger. But in the back of my mind, I remind myself they would not ask me to photograph them if something in my work didn't speak to them. Photography is very personal, it's a glimpse into my heart and my mind. This is how I see the world around me, this is how I see you. 

I used to work this mom in the hospital. Every time she worked and was the charge nurse, you knew the day would be pretty smooth. She is detail oriented, focused and confident plus a really sweet and kind person. Meeting her three beautiful little girls was a pleasure and I couldn't help but smile to myself by noticing so much happiness between all of them. It was really great to hang out with them for a short while and catch up. Because in a way, it kind of is like hanging out and taking some pictures along the way.

Thank you so much guys for choosing me to capture these wonderful moments of your family. It truly is an honor and pleasure every. single. time!

a baby boy is born in lyndhurst, ohio | cleveland lifestyle newborn photographer

No too long ago I did this families Fresh 48 session and now the lifestyle newborn photography session. I met them in their adorable and cozy Lyndhurst home along with their energetic sweet dogs. This new mom really wanted to get some pictures taken on the front porch since they love to hang out and relax there. The day we had originally scheduled was cold, rainy and very gloomy so we rescheduled for the next day and the weather was so much better! 

We then moved inside the house and captured some beautiful natural moments on the couch in the living room. Grandma was there to help but of course I invited her in to make these photos even more memorable. We then went up to the little boys nursery. I was instantly smitten with his room. These parents put a lot of love and time to make his little corner extra special. I adored the handmade details such as the bookshelf made by dad, the letter "L" for Liam was also made by dad. The furniture was painted a beautiful blue color adding just the right amount of bold contrast! Even the baby mobile was made by one of the uncles with our awesome Cleveland sports team pendants! They did such a great job! 

I love many of these photos! The one with Liam's head visible and one of the dogs next to him sitting calmly and so obediently is a winner for sure! Porch pictures are so sweet and personal to the family. I really like the one dad holding a beer and looking happily at his son. The first few weeks, months with a baby can be overwhelming but these two were so calm and relaxed! 

Thank you both for inviting me to capture these very special moment of your newborn baby boy! It was truly an honor. Can't wait to watch Liam grow!
