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 Five with Newborn Baby Boy | Cleveland, OH Family Photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing this wonderful family for the second time. This time as a family of five because they just welcomed their newest tiny addition-a baby boy! As a family photographer, I always try to capture the essence of the family. I want to photograph them the way they really are, with each other, the kids, the parents and everyone together. I don't want a stiff portrait with everyone standing up straight and looking at my lens. I want emotion, love and connection. If I succeed, I know my families (clients) will love the outcome because it will touch them, they will feel connected to the images. They may even tear up. That is my goal. 

This family is so cheerful. Look at them, they are full of smiles! I really hope to watch these adorable kids grow as I hopefully photograph them again next year! Thank you guys for choosing me as your family photographer! It is such an honor! 

family welcomes baby girl-moreland hills | cleveland lifestyle family photographer

I had the pleasure of visiting this fun loving family in their Moreland Hills home a few weekends ago to capture some family photography as well as some lifestyle newborn photos. When I first arrived we started with the girls room. Cora is a little over two years old and not too long ago became a big sister to Nina. Becoming a sibling is tricky business because not only you no longer are the center of attention but you have to share so much, especially your parents! Cora is doing pretty good! As parents, with your first child you have to figure every thing out about taking care of a baby. With your second child, you know everything but man, oh man the word "tired" takes on a new meaning! Although no matter how tired you may be, at the end of the day, you wouldn't change a thing! Everything is perfect, your heart is full, life is the way it should be filled with smiles, joy, gratitude and true happiness. 

I was so smitten with the girls room. We had so much fun capturing many playful and sweet moments in this very cute bedroom. Later Grandma and Grandpa joined us for some fun outside in the yard. The weather was perfect and the sun was shining giving us beautifully warm images. Below are only a few of my favorites from this session! It was such an honor to be invited into this home. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for choosing me as your family photographer.

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!

spring mini session at cleveland museum of art | wade oval, family lifestyle photographer

More family photography from my spring mini sessions almost a month ago at Wade Lagoon in the Cleveland Museum of Art with this wonderful happy family of four! There was nothing but smiles (well maybe a little tiny bit of tears) but seriously, it was a fun family session! These two kiddos were too cute and their parents completely adore them and each other. We had a beautiful cherry blossom filled backdrop and this gorgeous family giving us amazing photos! Guys, sometimes I admit I get a little jealous of your family photos because I'd love to have some like this with my little kiddos and that's how I know a session was a success! It was a pleasure taking these for you and I hope to see you next year! Thank you again!
