baby girl turning one-family of three | cleveland, oh baby photographer

You need family photographs like this! Cleveland, OH has so many beautiful places with endless possibilities plus we have four seasons giving us even more options! These photos were captured in Rockefeller Park last fall. This little girl was just about to turn one! I know this adorable family very well because I’ve been friends with the mom for about 25 years! We are both Polish and came to the USA around the same time. Plus we both share a similar passion which is photography. So yes, we totally take pictures of each others families when we can!

I really love watching these two with their daughter. They are one of the most chill and relaxed parents I know and their girl is just like them! So cool, mellow and always smiling unless she’s sleepy or hungry! They are an outdoor family so she’s been on many, many hikes from very early on! Her dad even made her a balance bike since he is a biker! I can’t wait to see her take off on that bike maybe this summer!

Congrats guys on your beautiful little family!

a golden hour couples session | cleveland, ohio lifestyle photographer

Yes, my passion is family photography but lately I've been capturing a lot of love between couples and I adore it! So if you find me and want your love captured, contact me! These images are of my brother in law and his gorgeous girlfriend. Taken at my favorite time - the golden hour! Right when the sun begins to go down and there are not too many clouds, magic happens! Everything begins to glow and images take on a completely different mood. Visiting these two and so many others in Poland is always bittersweet. We love spending time with everyone but we also know our visit is always too short and tears will be shed when we leave. Also, these images are taken in Kobylniki Palace where we celebrated my father in laws 70th birthday. It was amazing to be there because it was where my husband and I married 11 years ago. The memories and emotions came flooding back into my heart. It was wonderful.

Jennifer + Greg's Wedding in Lakewood Park | Cleveland, OH photographer

Jennifer and Greg's Lakewood Park wedding ceremony was perfect. Once in a while I will take on a wedding to photograph and I am so glad I did with this one. Lakewood Park is gorgeous. There is plenty of green backdrops, beautiful lake Erie blues and the most charming gazebo for a marriage vow exchange. Jennifer and Greg arrived by themselves before their families. We spent some time alone strolling around the park and capturing pretty wedding photography. It was so nice to watch these two together because they are obviously so in love with each other. Greg could not stop smiling every time he looked at Jennifer. Jen had the happiest look in her eyes every time he did smile at her. When they kissed, it was real, sweet and gentle. Love is beautiful to watch. Their families arrived a short while later for a intimate and so romantic ceremony. Even I got a little teary eyed.  After all, there is nothing better than finding your second half to spend the rest of your life with. 

Jen and Greg, hope your marriage is full of sweet adventures, endless love and countless smiles. Thank you for choosing me as your wedding photographer. It was such an honor!

If you are planning a small and intimate wedding ceremony, I'd love to document your beautiful day in the most memorable and meaningful way! Let's chat!
