Cleveland, Ohio Family Photographer | Squires Castle | Fall Photography

We couldn’t have asked for a better day to have this beautiful family’s fall session at Squires Castle located outside of Cleveland, Ohio. The weather was warm, the light was soft and we were able to shoot inside and outside of the castle. This place serves as the perfect backdrop for family photography sessions. Its nestled in the thick woods of the Cleveland Metroparks. It not only has a beautiful Castle that is rich in history but many walking and bridle trials in the woods. Squires Castle is located in the North Chagrin Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks in Willoughby Hills, Ohio. It was built in the 1890s by Feargus B. Squire for use as the gatekeeper's house for his future country estate, which was never built. Squire, an executive with the Standard Oil Company, bought the surrounding 525 acres (212 ha) of land but never completed the project. Squire sold the property in 1922 and the Cleveland Metroparks acquired it in 1925.

Please contact me today if you are interested in updating those family photos and have a photography session at Squires Castle.

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.

Simply Beautiful Newborn Session

I had the pleasure of this cute little guy to join me in my home studio today. He was so fun to photograph and the perfect little model. He also proved to be one of my best newborns thus far for sleeping for me;) Most people believe babies just sleep all the time and newborn photography should be easy peasy...Haha! I believe the opposite is true they can be challenge sometimes. But its the challenge and the rewards of getting that perfect tender shot that make everything worth while. That and I came up with a few tricks to help lull the babies back to sleep.

I am greatly enjoying this new adventure of Newborn Photography and even those at first I was hesitant and resistant it is proving to be my favorite..

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.
