Fresh 48 Session Fairview Park Hospital | Cleveland, OH Newborn Photographer

I am so thrilled to show you this Fresh 48 Session which took place in Fairview Hospital. These are my absolute favorite to photograph because to me as a mom of two, those photographs are so, so precious, raw and just overflowing with effortless love!!! 

This little baby girl kept us waiting for her arrival for quite some time. I've been checking my phone eagerly waiting for the text "she's here!". She was most definitely worth the wait! When I photographed this Mom's maternity session, I remember her saying we still have so much to do before she gets here, including move into our new house! Well, she let Mommy and Daddy get ready just in time to move in! When I arrived at the hospital they have been parents for a good 48 hours already and they were so perfect at it! It always amazes me how natural parenting becomes once the baby is born. After all, all a baby needs is love and she has that in abundance! I am so glad I was able to photograph such timeless memories for them and I know these photographs will be treasured forever and will take them back to these moments whenever they look at them in the future.

Than you so much new parents and baby girl Laila for allowing me to photograph one of the best  moments of your life! Your beautiful little girl is so precious and you as parents are already so great! I am so excited for this new chapter in your lives! Your life has just begun and it will be such an awesome journey! I wish you many more wonderful and happy days and I hope I can be there to photograph even more of your amazing new life moments as a family of three!

a baby boy is born in lyndhurst, ohio | cleveland lifestyle newborn photographer

No too long ago I did this families Fresh 48 session and now the lifestyle newborn photography session. I met them in their adorable and cozy Lyndhurst home along with their energetic sweet dogs. This new mom really wanted to get some pictures taken on the front porch since they love to hang out and relax there. The day we had originally scheduled was cold, rainy and very gloomy so we rescheduled for the next day and the weather was so much better! 

We then moved inside the house and captured some beautiful natural moments on the couch in the living room. Grandma was there to help but of course I invited her in to make these photos even more memorable. We then went up to the little boys nursery. I was instantly smitten with his room. These parents put a lot of love and time to make his little corner extra special. I adored the handmade details such as the bookshelf made by dad, the letter "L" for Liam was also made by dad. The furniture was painted a beautiful blue color adding just the right amount of bold contrast! Even the baby mobile was made by one of the uncles with our awesome Cleveland sports team pendants! They did such a great job! 

I love many of these photos! The one with Liam's head visible and one of the dogs next to him sitting calmly and so obediently is a winner for sure! Porch pictures are so sweet and personal to the family. I really like the one dad holding a beer and looking happily at his son. The first few weeks, months with a baby can be overwhelming but these two were so calm and relaxed! 

Thank you both for inviting me to capture these very special moment of your newborn baby boy! It was truly an honor. Can't wait to watch Liam grow!

a baby boy is born, university hospitals | cleveland fresh 48 newborn photographer

Not everyone knows about fresh 48 photography. This particular session took place at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies in Cleveland, Ohio. A Fresh 48 is done in the first 48 hours of a babies life most likely in the hospital. The photographer captures all the details surrounding the new family addition and tries to tell a story of what it was like during the first couple days of the newborn babies life. 

I was so happy to capture these memories for dear friends of mine. I know this new mommy since high school but we really connected in Ursuline College where we both studied nursing. It was so wonderful to see them so happy and completely in love with their adorable son. This couple is usually always happy, fun and full of laughs but this was different and I'm sure they know what I mean. The love you feel for your newborn baby is really indescribable and it's impossible to conceal and this is exactly why I am in love with this type of photography! I am so happy for them and cannot wait to watch this little boy grow! 

It was an honor to capture these memories for a special couple. Thank you guys for allowing me into your first moments of parenthood! Congratulations!

big sister meets little brother | cleveland, ohio fresh 48 newborn photographer

As a photographer, I have many images which are frame worthy and portrait perfect. This image was taken in the hospital when Elena first met her little brother, what we photographers call a fresh 48 session. Yes, I love a nice "look at the camera portrait" but this image is so much more than that. This is such a special memory that would have become a blur if not photographed. This is it guys, this is life! Our beautiful life which changes and evolves so quickly. 

It would be an honor to capture moments like these for you. You may think that there won't be time, that you may be too exhausted, that you can just snap some pictures with your phone. Trust me, I will be quick, I will capture beautiful and extremely special moments and you will be SO glad you booked a fresh 48 photography session! I promise, this is so good!
