baby girl turning one-family of three | cleveland, oh baby photographer

You need family photographs like this! Cleveland, OH has so many beautiful places with endless possibilities plus we have four seasons giving us even more options! These photos were captured in Rockefeller Park last fall. This little girl was just about to turn one! I know this adorable family very well because I’ve been friends with the mom for about 25 years! We are both Polish and came to the USA around the same time. Plus we both share a similar passion which is photography. So yes, we totally take pictures of each others families when we can!

I really love watching these two with their daughter. They are one of the most chill and relaxed parents I know and their girl is just like them! So cool, mellow and always smiling unless she’s sleepy or hungry! They are an outdoor family so she’s been on many, many hikes from very early on! Her dad even made her a balance bike since he is a biker! I can’t wait to see her take off on that bike maybe this summer!

Congrats guys on your beautiful little family!

a sister on the way-rockefeller park greenhouse | cleveland maternity photographer

Landon is getting a sister and by the looks of things, this family couldn't be happier! Even though this winter hasn't been too bad considering Cleveland has a history of harsh winters, this day was extra chilly. Rockefeller Park Greenhouse  in the University Circle area of Cleveland was warm, providing great light and interesting backdrops. Landon had a great time running down isles of plants and throwing pennies into the fountain water! 

Before I decided to temporally stay home with my daughter, I used to work as a Registered Nurse with the mom in these images. She is one heck of a nurse and now an amazing mother! Landon had a rocky start to his life but with the incredible dedication, love and faith this family has, he is stronger and smarter than all medical expectations- beating and exceeding all the odds! 

Thank you guys for reaching out to me and allowing me to capture these special memories for you! I can not wait to see Landon and little princess playing together!

rockefeller park greenhouse | cleveland, ohio family photographer

Last week we visited Rockefeller Park Greenhouse in Cleveland, Ohio and it happened to be decorated for Christmas! I was so excited to find this because this place will make a gorgeous location for holiday pictures in 2016! 

This location is also a perfect place for family photographs or maternity sessions around the cold months of the year. It has beautiful light, greenery and many amazing little corners for unique photography. Once the poinsettias are removed, it's left with beautiful shades of greens and stunning orchids!
