big brother and little sister-sibling cuteness | cleveland heights, ohio family photographer

The Heights meaning Shaker Heights, Cleveland Heights and University Heights is full of charming parks for beautiful family photography! I met this family back in November on a gorgeous sunny day! They are no strangers to me because this is the third time I photographed them and this time with a sweet addition of a little sister! Big brother couldn't have been more handsome and loving! He spoiled his sister with hugs, kisses and so many smiles!! Instead of just the parents and kids at the session, even grandpa joined us for a few lovely captures! I always love when grandparents come because these photos are extra special and such wonderful memories for a lifetime! I know these parents are overflowing with gratitude and love for this cute bunch and I'm sure their house is always full of giggles and lots of laughter! So much joy to watch this family grow! Thank you again for entrusting as your family photographer!

family of five fall photos-two sisters and a brother | cleveland, ohio lifestyle portrait photographer

I am missing these beautiful sunny days in Cleveland so I dug up a family photo session I forgot to post from the fall with lots of sunshine! This wonderful happy family of five was so great to meet in Shaker Heights Parks! Can you believe the dresses these girls are wearing are hand-made by their mom?! I am still in awe of her talent and attention to detail! There is so much a photographer needs to keep on eye on when capturing family. The larger they are the harder it is especially with younger kids in families. Lifestyle photography makes this experience different. Perfect is boring! Sometimes if you worry too much about perfection, you miss the real authentic moments. This year as I reflect upon my photography in 2016, I want to take it to another level. To let go of expectations and shoot what feels right. I wonder where it will take me, but I believe it will be worth it! 

Thank you guys for the wonderful opportunity! It was such an honor.

a precious baby girl is born | cleveland heights, ohio newborn photographer

Newborn photography is so precious and I believe capturing newborns in their sweet, comfortable and honest state is the best approach. Not too long ago I had the pleasure of doing maternity pictures for this mom and here she is today, holding her precious little baby daughter in her arms and couldn't be happier! 

This little sweetie knew exactly when to arrive. Her dad came home from another country just two days before her due date! She slowly made her entrance right on the day she was due to be born. Even her loving grandmother suffering from cancer who passed away shortly after she was born was able to hold and kiss her first and only granddaughter. The love and strength little Alexandra is providing during a sad time for the whole family, is immeasurable. I'm sure her Grandma is watching from heaven smiling down. It was such an honor to capture these memories for an amazing family. I can not wait to watch this little girl grow since she is my newest neighbor! Thank you all for your trust.

family of five-fall photos | cleveland, ohio lifestyle photographer

I met this stunning family for a fall family photography session in Acacia Reservation near Cleveland, Ohio. We had a great time with the most amazing sunlight to end a perfect autumn evening! 

Okay, sometimes I admit, I take too many photos and share too many photos with my clients. But it's because I am in LOVE with what I do and when the circumstances are as perfect as they were during this session, it's hard not to! I love to show my clients that their families are beautiful and a true work of art! It's just amazing and when I'm capturing these memories, all I want, is to show them the real beauty of who they are right now! To me it would be unfair to only pick and choose certain images while there are so many other that speak so much beauty! So I give everything and run my photography business "all-inclusive" because all the details, moments matter. Just look at these and feast your eyes! I love how the baby brother grabs the big brothers hair and holds on for safety. The way their sweet daughter is so free, happy and shines with love. The parents after three gorgeous kids, their affection is so strong. 

It was such an honor to be chosen as their family photographer! Thank you guys and to all my clients from the bottom of my heart! This is so great and so important to be able to do this for all of you!!! Thank you!

family of three-beachwood | cleveland ohio kids lifestyle photographer

A continuation from the previous family photography session post but a slightly different setting. This photo session took place in a small local park in Beachwood, Ohio. The fall colors were already in full swing giving us gorgeous warm and vibrant tones. I really love the morning light in these fall photos. Since this shoot took place around eight in the morning, we were fortunate enough to catch the sunrise and it was spectacular! Although I do most of my sessions before sunset, I am very eager to do more early morning sessions as well because they are just as beautiful!
