In full bloom with this Newborn Photography Session | Cleveland, Ohio | Mentor, Ohio

Its always a pleasure meeting and talking with a family expecting a new little one on the way. This family not only trusted me with their newborn session but also their Fresh 48 session. The best part is non of us new if the family was going to have a baby boy or girl? They currently have a baby boy at home and we all were anticipating the news of the baby’s arrival. I will say I was a little excited to hear girl since for some reason 2018 and early 2019 was a year of newborn boys. I met the family in their hospital room for their fresh 48 session. Baby girl looked perfect and mom, dad and brother were thrilled for her to be here. The fresh 48 take place within 48 hours after delivery. I usually like to come in about day 2 of their stay. Once I wrapped up the fresh 48 session I was looking forward to them returning for their newborn sessions.

This session took place in my small studio. The newborn session entails more of the traditional poses of baby and adding in mom, dad and brother as well. I am so thrilled for the C. Family and their new family. I wish nothing but the best and creating sweet memories as they watch their children grow through the years.

Safety Accredited Newborn Professional Photographer | Cleveland, Ohio, | Mentor, Ohio

I am happy to announce I am a Safety Accredited Professional Newborn Photographer. What does this exactly mean? I took the time and extra course work, study and exams to complete over the last 6 months to ensure I am fully aware of the safety and qualifications needed to be a newborn photographer. This classification was designed to truly separate the Professionals from the “momtogophers” in the area. This certification along with my Bachelor’s in Science in Nursing ensures your precious little one is in the best hands while having Newborn Photography.

50% OFF all Professional Prints | Cleveland, Ohio | Mentor, Ohio

Professional Photography is an Investment. From start to finish there is a lot of time, thought, and cost involved while having professional photography done. The time is spent researching the perfect photographer, the outfit and finally the cost of the the photography package. You need to ask yourself after all the time and money has added up, why would you cut corners with printing the final product for your home? All of my photography packages include the “original resolution” images. That is an amazing offer since this allows the client to print poster size images without pixilation and as many times as they would like. The client now owns the digital rights to the images. However, when your end goal is to display a beautiful piece of artwork in your home, why would you settle with cheap prints. I can not stress enough the importance of high quality printing.

Many stores such as Walgreens and Target offer printing, but its low cost and low quality as well. Their colors are not always true, calibrated and will not equal professional quality. I am also not responsible for any printing errors that take place at 3rd party printing facilities. That is why I am happy to announce a savings for my customers with my professional print company who I collaborate with.

I am now offering 50% off on all prints, canvases and metal prints (excludes digital images) to all of my clients who purchase a regular priced photography session. While choosing to print with my lab, I can guarantee the colors are calibrated, true and will be high quality.

After all, if you are investing in Professional Photography you should not only start with the best but finish with a beautiful piece of artwork. Contact me today to get started on your next photography session.

Newborn Lifestyle Photography | Cuyahoga County, Ohio | Cleveland, Ohio

It was a couple weeks before Christmas when I heard the news that one of my January Newborn clients was close to delivering. I was surprised and excited to hear the news. This beautiful family was scheduled in mid January for a lifestyle session in their home and their little boy couldn’t wait to get here.

This sweet little guy was born 3 weeks early and was such a perfect little baby. He was small little guy but such a pleasure to photograph. He slept most of the time while doing some of the family posing and we quickly moved to the newborn shots. I had so much fun visiting this family in their home. I were able to capture many fun lifestyle photos for them as well. Traveling to clients home for the Newborn/Lifestyle photos have become a favorite of mine. It really is a special memory for the family the moments captured in their home. They are really some timeless keepsakes to treasure.

If you are interested in a Newborn in home lifestyle session please contact me today! I would love to chat with you and discuss many options.

xoxo

Lifestyle Newborn Photography | Cleveland, Ohio | Lake County, Ohio

You may have heard of Lifestyle photography and wondered what does that exactly mean? Lifestyle is essentially the candid moments created in an artistic manner. I am happy to announce I offer 2 different types of Newborn Photography Sessions. The first is a 1 -1 1/2 hour session in my home studio. At the studio I provide multiple headbands, wraps and props available to photograph the baby. Next we can take photos with mom, dad and siblings if needed with the options of backdrops and a beautiful white couch. The client also receives all the digital images taken from the session. On average around 40-50 images with copyright release.

The second option is my Newborn plus lifestyle session in the comforts of your own home. The benefit of this is I bring everything to you! I typically take all of the newborn photos with my wonderful props and wraps but then focus on unique candid photos throughout your home.

Lifestyle photography is the goal of capturing real-life events in more of an artistic manner. This could be the tickling of baby toes while up in the nursery. The mom sweetly rocking the baby in her rocking chair. These artistic photos not only capture more of the everyday but also help create a story. It is essentially telling the story of you and your new family days after leaving the hospital.

Please contact me for more specific pricing on my newborn sessions.

Simply Beautiful Newborn Session | Cleveland, Ohio | Mentor, Ohio

One of my favorites backdrops or props with my Newborns is the Simply White backdrop. It is so pure, classy and elegant that puts all the focus on your newborn. My goal when photographing a newborn in this pose is to allow the baby to look the most natural and pure as they can. I’m not trying to do some crazy “yoga” poses with your precious little newborn but rather that him/her decide where and how to lay. Then I place a white sheet around the baby to accent them.

Please contact me to book your 2019 Newborn Session. I offer a couple different options and please check back for more of my most recent and updated sessions.

Little Italy and Botanical Garden Senior Session - Cleveland High School Portraits

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.
