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 infant boy from shaker hts | cleveland, OH newborn photographer

Just a few weeks before the holidays I was invited into this gorgeous Shaker Heights home. I met a adorable baby boy and his wonderful parents for a family newborn photography session. Shortly before the baby was born, the parents moved into this house and there was still some unpacked boxes laying around. Both sets of grandparents were also visiting and the house was full of love and maybe some chaos that comes with a new baby in the house (which I didn't notice at all! In the midst of all of this, Aurea the mother reached out to me and scheduled this newborn session. I'm always amazed when your life might be a little hectic, sleep-deprived and full of emotions, many of us still make the time to capture it! We want to remember all of this, the newness, the love, the tiny hands and fingers, the way we felt. That makes me so happy to know that and that is why I love lifestyle newborn photography because it's more natural, real and most of all, it's more YOU.

family of four-winter pictures on a snowy day | cleveland, ohio lifestyle portrait photographer

In Cleveland you can bet that snow can fall as early as mid-Ocotber but not this year! This was the first snow of the year in mid-November. Family pictures look great against the snowy backdrop. The beautiful simple white color makes everyone stand out and look ahhhmazing! I love it plus its a natural reflector which photographers love! The only catch is you have to be brave enough to stand a little chill. So far, we've been having a unusually warm winter so no worries there! 

This adorable family was such a pleasure to meet. Kelly found me on Facebook via a friend. I love to hear peoples stories of how they came across my work. I couldn't get enough of the cute big brother and little sister, they were so sweet to each other and full of happy giggles. I personally love the first image the most. It's the most authentic and true to this family-so joyful and full of love. I think we captured some beautiful photos which I'm sure will be treasured for a lifetime. It was so nice to meet you guys and hope to do this again!

family of four - adorable siblings | cleveland heights - northeast ohio photographer

The lovely family pictured is no stranger to me, this is the third time we met for a in-home lifestyle photography. I had so much fun with this brother and sister in their beautiful Cleveland Heights home. It takes a lot of behind the scenes to get a family ready for a professional portrait session, especially if there are little kids involved. I have to give the mom of these siblings so much credit because they all look gorgeous every single time and are full of smiles and love! It is so wonderful to photograph a family every year. Watching the kids grow is very exciting and capturing their childhood is an honor. I am so happy to know this family and I'm looking forward to many more family photography sessions. Take a look at their previous family portrait session from last year and see for yourself how they've grown! And I think the parents might even look younger ;)

three of us | cleveland museum of art | northeast ohio lifestyle family photographer

I've had the pleasure of photographing this sweet family photo session once before when their son was about 4 months old at the time. The previous session was at Acacia Reservation in Pepper Pike, Ohio and this one was at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Now he is a little over one years old and couldn't be cuter!  

This mom told me all she wanted for her birthday was a photo session from me. I'm not the kind to brag but this made me incredibly happy! The love in this family is so alive and these images are proof of that! 

Thanks again guys and can't wait to the next time :)
