Headlands Beach Summer Mini Sessions - Cleveland, Ohio Family Portraits

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!

The Magic in the Golden Hour

The magic of the golden hour... Even though I don't live in the beautiful Outer banks  area of the Carolinas, this place can create some magical photos. Plan a visit to the Headlands beach during the late summer months, an hour before sunset and you will find some breathtaking backdrops. Headlands is located in Mentor, OH Lake County and is the longest natural beach along Lake Erie in Ohio. What exactly is the "Golden Hour"? It is typically the period shortly after sunrise or before sunset during which daylight is redder and softer. Its during this time that creates a beautiful golden glow in your images. The beach boasts natural sandy, golden rod beach grass and beautiful lighthouse. This is the perfect package to create stunning family photos.
