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!

spring mini session at cleveland museum of art | wade oval, family lifestyle photographer

More family photography from my spring mini sessions almost a month ago at Wade Lagoon in the Cleveland Museum of Art with this wonderful happy family of four! There was nothing but smiles (well maybe a little tiny bit of tears) but seriously, it was a fun family session! These two kiddos were too cute and their parents completely adore them and each other. We had a beautiful cherry blossom filled backdrop and this gorgeous family giving us amazing photos! Guys, sometimes I admit I get a little jealous of your family photos because I'd love to have some like this with my little kiddos and that's how I know a session was a success! It was a pleasure taking these for you and I hope to see you next year! Thank you again!

your story, your life, your memories | cleveland, ohio family photographer

Family photography is so important and my passion. It's not just about taking pretty pictures but about showing and preserving your story, your family memories, your love. Everyone is uniquely different and this is what makes us beautiful because we each have our OWN story.

Being photographed can feel a bit intimidating but don't worry, I have you covered. My number one goal is to capture YOU. So I want your kids to act silly and even "misbehave" a little. It's totally okay because that is you, the family you are right now. Do you have a favorite spot you like to hang out with the kids? Take me there and show me what it is you do. In fact, don't show me, just do what you do and I'll take the pictures. Yes, once in a while I will guide you and tell you where to stand but it will be so casual, you won't even notice the camera and sometimes you won't even notice me. Let's go to the park, to the playground, hang out at your house or backyard, or go have some delicious cupcakes in that neighborhood bakery! Whatever is meaningful to you, let's preserve it! 

So...

Do you want to capture your family the way you really are, the way all of you love each other? 

Are you attracted to more candid, lifestyle and a bit of portraiture photography? 

Do you want to see how beautiful your family really is? Because let's face it, we hardly have time to step back and notice the incredible love, authenticity and connection. I will. 

I will preserve your love. Your story. Your family. The way you are now.
