family of five at the museum of art | cleveland, oh lifestyle family photographer

The Cleveland Museum of Art Wade Lagoon is one of my favorite spots for family photography. This is the second time I'm photographing this family of five and this time their little boy was on the run! One of the best parts of working with families is the pleasure of watching everyones kids grow and change. Luckily the parents tend to stay the same :)! I loved the way Raechel looked in the long blue dress, if I could make all my Mamas wear dresses, I would!! The way I see it, is every day we mothers tend to our children with endless needs, sometimes we hardly have a minute to ourselves. A family session is an opportunity to feel special and to feel beautiful surrounded by the ones you love the most. You are the engines that make a family and home function and you deserve to feel and look like a goddess because you are!! 

We had a wonderful time capturing these memories. Surrounded by spring cherry blossoms and sunshine! Everyone was in a terrific mood which made this gallery full of smiles and tender moments. Thank you again for choosing me as your family photographer!!! It's always a pleasure and honor to photograph your family.

holiday mini session at sugar pines farm | cleveland, family photographer

These holiday mini sessions at Sugar Pines Farm in Chesterland, OH were just amazing! A gorgeous backdrop of pine trees covering a huge amount of land, the fresh brisk air, perfect sunshine! No props needed at all, except for these wonderful people!! Stella is one hard to get cookie but with this being my third time photographing her, I think we are on solid ground! Check out our previous sessions from one year ago and a half a year later. Her Daddy especially, one day will appreciate her independent and inquisitive nature! We had a lot of fun creating these memories. This family never disappoints in outfit selection because why not, you should look glam, fancy and gorgeous! Your photographs will look even more amazing! 

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Guys! Thank you again!!!!

Family of Four-Two Sisters-Fall Session | Cleveland OH Family Photographer

Hello! Thanks so much for taking a look at my work! I had the pleasure of photographing this wonderful family in Acacia Reservation on a gorgeous sunny fall afternoon. I was so smitten with these two sweet sisters. They were full of smiles and ready for a fun adventure in the park. The matching dresses they were wearing coordinated perfectly with the tall yellow grass and wildflowers in the park. They had fun making pretty bouquets, throwing leaves in the air and gifting their beautiful Mom pretty flowers. I love when Grandparents join the session because it makes it even more meaningful and memorable. The love in this family is so beautiful. I just love how everyone is cuddling on the blanket and simply enjoying each other. 

Thank you so much for a wonderful session and hope to see you again soon! Thank you all.

extended family portrait session in lyndhurst | cleveland, ohio lifestyle photographer

These two,  still very in love, can be extra proud of the family they created. I met this wonderful family in their Lyndhurst home a few weekends ago for a extended family photography session. Everyone is a little spread out all over the country, some still live here in Ohio, some in Illinois and some in Michigan. It's been a long time since everyone was TOGETHER. So, I agree that this session was a must! Plus the grandparents will be celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary soon and what a great idea it is to capture some beautiful memories. Everyone looked so good in their coordinating and thought out outfits. The photos look sharp and free of any distractions! I was so impressed with how great the grandmother looks. I'm not going to reveal how old she is, but lets just say she looks very good for her age! Also, if you feel discouraged and think this is too hard to do with your family-don't. This particular session took only 20 minutes and there are plenty of great photographs! 

It was such an honor to do this for all of you!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for choosing me as your family photographer for such a special family event!

a little sister is born | cleveland, ohio newborn and sibling photography

Newborn photography is slowly evolving from very posed pictures of the baby to a more natural approach of rather capturing the new family and their new sweet addition. I met this wonderful family from Cleveland Heights back in early November. As a mom of two kids myself, I know capturing photos of our family together is nearly impossible. Therefore I realize hiring a photographer is almost a must! Of course I have higher expectations as well. I really love the way newborn photography has moved away from photos with babies in baskets, decorated with bows and ribbons that almost always look silly and unnatural and even more silly on the walls of your home. Capturing families in a natural setting which more than likely the setting is their home, is so much more beautiful and meaningful! Everyone is more comfortable and relaxed. In return the photos looks pure and raw, full of authentic love between a family and their precious newborn daughter or son. Capturing newborn sibling pictures becomes so much easier and more fun for everyone! I can guarantee you, I will capture many sweet moments between all of you even when life seems crazy and hectic! That's the beauty of it anyways!
