Fall in the park with family of four in Beachwood | Cleveland, OH Lifestyle Photographer

I met this family in Beachwood, Ohio for a family lifestyle photography session. Let me just tell you. These parents have their hands full! These two little boys are full of energy, curiosity and adventure but only the good kind! Boys being boys at their best! This session started off really smooth but somewhere 3-5 minutes in, one was in complete tears. Can you tell?! Probably not. I kept telling the mom and dad not to worry-we are fine! Seriously, just let them do what they want to do and in between all that, I promise I’ll get at least a few good family photos!! This is one of my top favorite family sessions from this past year. I just love all the natural smiles and so, so much love between this fun loving family! Plus, not to mention the perfect fall evening with the most golden light a photographer could only wish for! Everything turned out beautifully and I can not wait to see these two boys the following year!

six month old milestone baby session | cleveland, OH lifestyle family photographer

It has been a long time since I did a blog post! October to be exact! January is usually a month a family photographer takes some time away from the camera after the busy fall season! It was truly a wonderful one for me-the busiest thus far. I met many new wonderful families and reconnected with previous clients. The weather cooperated for most of my sessions and many beautiful memories were captured! This month I caught up on some personal photo projects, took a photography workshop and the dreaded-preparing to file my taxes!

Let’s get down to a little about this happy, adorable family of three. I had the honor to visit them in their Edgewater home the beginning of this year. Their little girl just turned six months old and was doing all the sweet milestones she is supposed to be doing! Grabbing her feet, blowing bubbles, clapping, laughing at her reflection, sitting like a pro and just being super CUTE! Her parents are completely in love with her and so was I by the end of this session! I especially adored the way she instantly smiled from ear to ear when she saw her sweet face in a mirror! It was hilarious and I’m so glad we caught it on camera because that is one of the things that would probably be easily forgotten but now it’s captured and will be remembered. :) I loved being in their home. I felt so much love and warmth between this family, it was truly a pleasure to spend some time together.

Thank you for choosing me to document your family story during such a wonderful moment in your life. All the best to you and hope to watch this little peanut grow!

Family of Four on Lake Erie | Cleveland OH Beach Portrait Session Photographer

This was the first time I did beach sessions in Cleveland and this location for sure will become a yearly event! Lake Erie is so beautiful with gorgeous beaches all along the coast line. It was a sweltering hot kind of day with full sun and not a cloud in the sky! To be honest I was a bit nervous how these would turn out. Would the kids be okay in the hot weather? Will the pictures look good in the full sun? But, everything was perfect! I couldn't be happier with how these turned out! The kiddos had a blast looking for sharks in the water ;), playing with the sand and climbing on the rocks. It was like a adventure with pictures along the way! 

I've photographed this family for the third time and every time they are a pleasure!! I especially love how Mom really does a great job dressing everyone in awesome outfits. They look comfortable and relaxed! I always encourage families to wear clothes that are easy to move around in because a family sessions with small kids are quick, fun and require a good amount of movement. They pulled it off so well! 

Thank you guys for another great session! Looking forward to the next one! 

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.

Expecting Baby Brother-Wade Lagoon | Cleveland OH Maternity Photographer

I am so proud to show you these! This maternity photography session took place in Wade Lagoon of The Cleveland Art Museum. The evening was perfect, the flowers were blooming and this family looked so good and happy!! 

I am so honored to call these lovely people my really good friends. They are expecting their second son very soon but before Max arrives, Mom wanted some family pictures of just the three of them. I met Alecia and David at the hospital when I was a nurse at University Hospitals. This was way before we had kids, way before those two were married to each other. And now here we are, good friends, they are married and expecting their second little miracle! It's really amazing how life works out and somehow connects us in unexpected ways. We had a nice evening together during our session. Jackson was such a good assistant whenever I needed an extra hand :) Plus he looked like such a grown up big brother already. I can not wait to see him love and play with his sibling very soon. I am certain they will be a terrific duo! 

Thank you guys again for allowing me to capture these very special memories for you!! Love.
