family of three with baby girl in fairview park | cleveland, OH newborn photographer

Newborn photography is one of those events that may seem impossible to plan and coordinate but it doesn't have to be.  I met this family in their Fairview Park home and when I arrived, dad was still ironing moms blouse and I smelled coffee in the air. It was like hanging out around their house and simply taking some pictures here and there. It was so effortless and I came home with so many beautiful portraits of a new family of three. Baby girl was the sweetest little doll with her pretty head ties and fluffy tutu! She was all smiles and contentment. When she needed a break, we stopped to fill her up and all was good! Not every newborn session has to be done right away. This one was photographed at two months old. Parents are more accustomed, more relaxed and comfortable with their new role. 

So, if you want to wait to capture those precious newborn memories a little bit later than the recommended two weeks, it is a great idea!!

Two month old newborn-Lakefront Nature Preserve | Cleveland, OH Baby Photographer

Before it was cold, I had the pleasure of capturing sweet photographs for a family and their newborn son that was two months old at the time. We met at the Cleveland Lakefront Nature Preserve on a gorgeous fall evening. Many of you may be under the impression that a newborn session needs to be done as soon as possible, preferably before the baby turns two weeks old. This may be the case for studio posed newborn photography. My style is more natural also know as lifestyle photography. There is no need to hurry. I don't need the baby to sleep so I can achieve those newborn posed shots. All I want is your family, your love and YOU. Those tender moments, details, feelings that you want to remember forever. 

I love that this family chose to wait until their son was a little older to have their newborn photos taken. We were able to have this session done in a beautiful location of Cleveland, Lakefront Nature Preserve. (BTW if you have not been there, you need to check it out! It's a gem!) I have so many favorites from their gallery of images but I was able to somehow narrow it down! So, a newborn photo session can be done in the comfort of your own home or if the weather allows, in the beauty of nature. Cleveland has many amazing locations to choose from!

family of three in pepper pike acacia reservation | cleveland, OH photographer

I met up with this family of three for a photography family session in Pepper Pike Acacia Reservation near Cleveland, OH. It was a gorgeous, warm, sunny fall afternoon. It felt like a easy, slow, full of laughter evening in the park. The little boy, a bit over one year old was in the best happy mood. He just kept smiling, exploring and being super cute! The mother and I know each other from our childhood years and it felt so good to catch up as adults, mothers and parents. We shared stories, advice and laughs. In the midst of moving to a new house which is full of renovations. these three made it a priority to capture these memories! I am so glad they did because I personally am in awe of these images, this light and this love. 

Thank you guys for choosing me as your family photographer. I hope we do this again!
