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!

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!

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-christmas photos | cleveland, ohio lifestyle photographer

I met this great family on a gorgeous November Saturday in Shaker Heights near Cleveland, Ohio for my first round of Christmas photography mini sessions. I have to admit, I was getting a little nervous when my Christmas sign didn't want to stay up on the fireplace mantel (next time I was ready with duct tape!). It turned out to be a gorgeous evening! We really couldn't have been luckier with the weather and amazing sunlight! This lovely bunch came with their best smiles and attitude making for a really fun time. Don't they look great in their awesome outfits?! I was told by other photographers that I need to pin their pictures on Pinterest to serve as an example of "what to wear for christmas photos". It was so nice to meet this family and capture some quick but forever family photo moments! 

I will be sharing many more Christmas mini session photographs from other awesome families I got to work with! I feel so lucky!! This is awesome!! Thank you all for choosing me to capture your memories!!!

headshot for fellow photographer-portrait session | cleveland, ohio photography

A few weeks ago my friend Justyna, also a Cleveland photographer asked me to take some portrait shots for her website. I was already doing a shoot prior to hers at the Cleveland Museum of Art. It was a cloudy day and I thought it was going to start raining on us any minute but we got lucky! 

The art museum never disappoints with its variety of possible compositions. There is some greenery and florals for the nature like photos. There is plenty of beautiful architecture for a more elegant atmosphere. So many options for a photographer! 

Take a look on Justyna Walker's website to view her amazing work!
