Family of Four with Two Daughters | Cleveland, OH Lifestyle Photographer

Family photography is my favorite for sure because it matters, it is important. We met at Acacia Reservation in Pepper Pike, Ohio on a gorgeous, really warm fall day! This family looked so good and their girls were extra sweet and ready for some pictures! We had a lot fun jumping, dancing and playing games! The light was just perfect! Just look at all the golden bokeh (the blurry speckles) illuminating this family! Everything looked so, so beautiful! I think these golden warm days are over for now in Cleveland and I seriously cannot wait for 2018 Fall Pictures!! I have big goals and plans! Till then! 

It was so nice to meet all of you! Thank you all for choosing me as your family photographer!

Cleveland Heights In-Home Lifestyle Session | Northeast Ohio Photographer

This family is pretty awesome and so was this in-home lifestyle photo session. Not just because they are good friends of mine but because they took a leap, a risk and started a brand new adventure by moving to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Both of them work for the Cleveland Clinic and if some of you do not know, Abu Dhabi is also the home of a huge Cleveland Clinic luxury hospital. So they packed everything up and moved with their sweet two year old son. 

Before they left they wanted to catch a few more important memories. Cleveland Heights was their home for a couple short years but with big significance, they started a family here. We got lovely photographs on their porch and in their backyard which without a doubt hold many memories for them. Plus they all sported their awesome Cleveland gear! 

Remember guys, Cleveland is your home and we can not wait to have you back but in the meantime, have a great time and explore the world. It has so much to offer and wherever you will go, people will welcome you with open hearts because of your kind nature. Miss you!

two little sisters + parents | cleveland, ohio lifestyle family photographer

There is no doubt in my mind that family photography sessions are the most rewarding! Capturing the essence of a family is actually very intimate and very challenging but these are personally my favorite memories and I absolutely love this subject area. To truly capture a family is to capture their love and I think this session was spot on, especially the first image below. It is always such an honor when a family invites me to capture their love for each other. 

These sisters stole my heart right away! They looked so precious in their matching dresses and adorable smiles. Not to mention the love between these parents, so real. The Cleveland Museum of Art also did not disappoint. At this time of the year, the CMA looks better with each day as all the trees blossom with pretty flowers. This is for sure one of my favorite locations to shoot amazing photography!

rockefeller park greenhouse | cleveland, ohio family photographer

Last week we visited Rockefeller Park Greenhouse in Cleveland, Ohio and it happened to be decorated for Christmas! I was so excited to find this because this place will make a gorgeous location for holiday pictures in 2016! 

This location is also a perfect place for family photographs or maternity sessions around the cold months of the year. It has beautiful light, greenery and many amazing little corners for unique photography. Once the poinsettias are removed, it's left with beautiful shades of greens and stunning orchids!

fireplace photo session, shaker heights, cleveland, ohio photographer

There was a little preparation involved in this Christmas photo session. We had to make some calls regarding use of the fireplace in Horseshoe Park, the mom bought a beautiful decorative banner that fit the scene perfectly (belongs to Agnes' Studios now) and then we actually had to light the fireplace on a very chilly day! Plus the usual preparation which is involved in every shoot - making everyone look good! 

This was a very quick session lasting about 15-20 mins. Once a toddler decides the shoot is over, it's over. But despite the lack of time, I was able to capture some amazing photographs that this family will cherish forever. Awesome!!
