There is something so special about those first few months when your newborn is brought home. Everything is so very fresh, new, exciting and precious all wrapped up together. Its these little moments you wish you could stop time and soak it all in. It all happens so fast from the moment you bring them home you blink and they are riding their bike. This is why hitting the pause button with photography is so important for any new family. Doing the in home lifestyle photography sessions have become a new favorite of mine. These are not posed, unpractical and stiff images. More like natural, candid and breath taking is a better way to describe lifestyle photography. I had so much fun with the H family and their new baby girl. We were able to capture so many beautiful shots throughout the home while working on the baby's timetable. If you are considering newborn photography it is best to book prior to delivery. Please contact me for more information on my newborn packages.
This winter might possibly seem like the winter that never ends. However, the day we decided to shoot at the Cleveland Botanical Garden it was 50 degrees!! The grounds were still recovering from the harsh winter, but the gardens to proved to be a beautiful backdrop for our Maternity Session. If you are interested in a Family, Child or Maternity session please contact me to reserve your spot! Summer sessions are filling up quickly.
Just wrapped up my first Senior Photography session in Cleveland, Ohio. Luckily the rain decided to stay away but the 40 mph wind was hard enough to deal with. I felt very honored when a friend approached me to shoot her daughter's Senior photos. I must say at first I felt a little overwhelmed but then I figured she must be easier than a 3 year old girl, right?! The setting was perfect at Trattoria in Little Italy, which held a special meaning to the family. This quaint little place is boasting with character and beautiful brick walls. Oh how I do love the leading lines with beautiful brick walls!! I really wished it would not have been so windy though. That is the one downfall of shooting outside and on location but we made the best of it!
The second location was at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens and it was breathtaking. I even had to make a stop and take a few pictures at the Glidden house. The Cleveland Botanical Gardens was a dream to photograph a young lady in. The green gardens, Ivy and rose gardens are just a few of the backdrops that completed our session together. In the end I realized how much I enjoyed photographing a Senior and hope to add many more in the future.
The Summer Mini Sessions for July 2017 were held at Headlands Beach. It may not be known as one of the most beautiful places in all of Ohio for swimming. However, it continues to be my favorite places in Ohio for family portraits. The natural sandy beach, tall grasses, blue water and golden light all come together and make a beautiful backdrop for photography. I was lucky enough to have 6 families join me in my Summer Minis and capture some beautiful images. Headlands beach is and will always be a favorite place to photograph many families to come!
