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!

Welcome baby boy-Shaker Heights | Cleveland, OH Newborn Photographer

A few weeks ago I was invited to do newborn photographs for a sweet family of three in Shaker Heights. They just welcomed their first baby and he couldn’t be any cuter. He was born after his parents waited 41 weeks for his arrival. The wait was so worth it!

These four (because we even had the fur baby is in the shots) were a dream to photograph! Little Gerard was the calmest, sleepiest newborn baby boy I have met. He pretty much slept through the entire session except for a short diaper change. Gerards nursery was in the brightest room of the house which gave us the prettiest natural light. I’m really curious how this little one will be in two years-still laid back and go with the flow how he was for this session or will the “terrible twos” kick in?! Either way, these new parents are so happy to welcome the little gent into their lives.

Thank you both for choosing me to photograph these beautiful first days with your son. Enjoy him!

Baby girl on the way - Pregnancy Photography | Cleveland, OH Maternity Photographer

I hope you enjoy looking through these wonderful maternity session images. We captured these memories at the Cleveland Museum of Art at the end of May. Right now this gorgeous mommy-to-be already has her little girl at home and she's two months old! The quote "the days are long but the years are short" is not a lie. My oldest started Kindergarten yesterday and I am a basket full of emotions. Where has my little baby girl gone, when did this happen, her baby book is officially complete, she's wearing a school uniform, she needs her mommy a little less and I could go on and on. The point is that these moments with a newborn, infant, toddler and then preschooler are so brief and so special!!! Take it all in and don't for a minute wish she was older already, sitting already, walking already, talking etc because it will happen with a blink of an eye! I promise you, it will. 

Maggie and I met while we both worked as Registered Nurses at University Hospitals almost 10 years ago! I am so happy for both of the new parents and wish them all the happiness as they walk through this awesome adventure together. Thank you both for choosing me as your maternity photographer!

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!
