Sunflower Mini Photography Sessions | Avon, Ohio | Maria's Field of Hope

Maria’s field of Hope is the Prayers from Maria Foundation first planted the Sunflower field in 2014 to gracefully draw attention to the lack of funding for childhood cancer.  The field was inspired by the memory and spirit of Maria McNamara, planted as a way to love and honor the courageous children who are battling cancer and those we have lost. The field is located in Avon, Ohio and is really a beautiful and heartbreaking atmosphere at the same time. The field itself is very beautiful with its acreage of sunflowers spreading for miles. However at the same time, each field is lined with yellow signs and pictures of precious children that have either lost there battle with cancer or currently in the middle of battling cancer.

I started offering mini photography session at Maria’s field for families to celebrate and take in the beauty of the field. I also am happy to donate 50% of my earning to Maria’s foundation in order to help find a cure for Childhood cancer. 2018 might have marked that last time the sunflower field will take place in Avon, Ohio.

I am hopefully Maria’s foundation will find another plot of land and continue this amazing foundation they have started.

A Beautiful Newborn and Lifestyle in home Session.


You may have heard the term "Lifestyle Family Session", but never fully understood what that meant or what it entails. I was excited to announce my Newborn sessions now have the option of adding on the Lifestyle Session at a clients home. So what is a "Lifestyle Session"? The at-home lifestyle newborn sessions are about the connection and love that family members already have for this new life. During these sessions my goal is to capture the special moments with each family member and the baby as well as the family all together. The siblings are involved as well with the session. The benefits of having the session in your home is to allow the siblings to run and play while the "newborn posed" pictures are taking place. These sessions are at a much more relaxed-casual pace and often times the youngest member of the family (aka, the newborn) will dictate how the session runs.  The session is usually 2-3 hours in length depending on how sleepy the baby is in order to achieve the newborn poses. I usually like to start the session with the Newborn. It is best to keep the baby awake 2-3 hours and fed prior to my arrival. Once I arrive I prefer to begin with the newborn photos. These photos usually consist of props and the use of my beanbag. If the baby is not cooperating, no worries, we may move to the nursery with some candid mom and baby photos. Its a very laid back session, and we all go with the flow.  If the baby is still not quite ready for their individual pictures this is a great time to photograph the baby with mom, dad and incorporate the siblings. After those pictures are complete, I will go back to the newborn photos. My newborn photos are a mixture of swaddling in a few "posed" positions but often times they may appear in a more relaxed newborn position. My goal isn't to turn your beautiful newborn into a "frog" pose but rather photograph all the unique and beautiful qualities the newborn has in a more natural way. This would include the baby's feet, eye lashes, and flaking skin. After all, time waits for no one, and we have a very small window of time to capture these beautiful newborn characteristics. If you are interested in my "Simply Beautiful Newborn" Sessions, please contact me for pricing and booking. It is best to book the newborn sessions prior to delivery. The best time period to photograph newborns is day 2-12 of life. Anytime before 2 weeks of life is best and helps to achieve the sleepy and newborn qualities.

First Communion Photography with a precious little lady

I have had the honor of watching this sweet little girl grow up through the eyes of my lens. I first began photographing her when she was only 4 years old. Its so hard to believe how quickly time escapes us and here she is making her First Holy Communion. I had the honer of photographing this sweet girl for her communion photos. I always have so much fun with her and she has become such a natural in front of the camera. Many blessings to you Madelyn!!

Easter Mini Sessions with Live Bunnies

I was so excited to announce my Easter Mini Sessions with Live Bunnies! These cute little bunnies belonged to a friend of mine and she was more than happy to loan them for a day. At first I was a little worried with bunnies and kids. Most people will tell you photographing kids and animals can be a challenge. Forget about photographing them together;) I was very happy to announce both the kids and the bunnies were a dream to photograph. I couldn't believe how laid back these bunnies were no matter how many times they were tugged, pulled and carried around. 

Overall, my first session of Easter Mini's with Live Bunnies was a success. This is something I would hope to offer again soon for my clients.
