Maternity Photography | Cleveland, Ohio | Mentor, Ohio | Concord Township, Ohio

Soon a sweet little baby will make a family of 3. One of my most popular packages that I offer families is my bump to baby package. This is such a new, fun and exciting time in a person’s life. It really should be documented the best it can. My bump to baby package is there to photograph your growing belly with a Maternity session, Newborn Session and finally a milestone session with the baby. This package can be purchased and booked with tentative dates, depending on when the baby is born. It is best to have your maternity photos taken in the 3rd trimester but not close to your due date. Moms usually feel their best during the beginning or middle of the 3rd trimester and you now have a belly to show off!

After the maternity session, I recommend the Newborn photos taken during days 4-15 of life. They are usually a quick 1 hour session taken in my studio. Finally the milestone session can be done anytime during the baby’s first year. Or you can have their first birthday smash cake session done.

I greatly enjoyed my time with the Sabol family and we documented their maternity session. Mom is feeling great and we are all anticipating the arrival of her baby girl. I will be photographing her Newborn pictures as well.

Please contact me for more information regarding my bump to baby photography package.

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.

Fresh 48 Photography | Cleveland, Ohio | Lake County, Ohio

Fresh 48 photography is becoming one of my favorite newborn sessions with my families. They are so special because these special moments are captured shortly after delivery. Fresh 48 is a unique opportunity to photograph the baby with their immediate family within 48 hours of entering this world.

The photos are more documented and relaxed in fashion without any posing or staging the photos. They are as natural as they can be. They take the stress out of photography because my whole goal is to capture the moment and the interactions between mom, dad and siblings. The major images I also try and capture are the baby’s skin, tiny hand, hospital bassinet and cuddling with mom & dad.

I offer two different options for the Fresh 48. They can be purchased individually or as an add on to any maternity or newborn package.

Now Offering Fresh 48 Photography Sessions | Cleveland, Ohio | Mentor, Ohio

I am so very excited to announce the addition of the “Fresh 48 Photography Sessions” to my packages. This is something I have been working towards offering but wanted to make sure I was fully qualified and safety certified before I began entering the hospitals. You may ask, what exactly is the Fresh 48?

This type of photography is a special session for the those families who want the first few hours of their Newborn’s life captured without the labor or birth documented. The sessions take place at the hospital or birthing center within the first 24-48 hours of life. This session is also known more as a lifestyle and documentary approach of the the newborn and their immediate family. Please note this is not a traditional Newborn Session and I will not pose the baby or bring any props.  

This is what you can expect during the Fresh 48. Once the baby is born and you are settled in your room, I will come to the hospital for your session.  This is typically on day 2.  Since I use natural light, I come during daylight hours.  Between doctors, nurses, and visitors, we don’t have a large window of time for pictures.  Sessions typically last about 45-60 minutes.  This allows time for individual pictures of baby, pictures with parents, and meeting siblings. This will be my chance to capture your baby’s sweet new moments in a fresh natural way!

Most recently I also completed my safety certification for Newborn Photography. With this new certification along with my Bachelors of Science in Nursing (RN) I can ensure your precious little one will be in great care.

For a limited time, I am offering discounted session prices for my Fresh 48 and will only take limited sessions per month. Please contact me for more information and specific pricing.

The benefits of Newborn Lifestyle Photography | Cleveland, Ohio | Lake County, Ohio

Those tiny toes, the fluttering eyelashes, the way they grasp their parents’ fingers. These are the moments that parents want to record and keep forever.  There really is two different types of Newborn Photography today. There is the traditional Newborn Photography which is the type of photos you see with babies in baskets, bowls and backdrops. I currently offer this type of photography and is done at all of my newborn sessions. I also have a variety of “high-end” wraps, headbands and accessories to choose from while customizing your session.

The second type of Newborn photography is known as Lifestyle photography. So what exactly is this? This is more like photojournalism in that it is designed to tell a story, and document the baby with their new surroundings. These tend to be shots that are more real and less staged, designed to capture the essence of having a newborn. This is truly my favorite since it allows poses to be natural, unposed and artistic all at the same time. The true benefit of Lifestyle photography is the session takes place in the comforts of your OWN home! How great is that! Especially after coming home from the hospital, who really wants to leave to go get pictures taken. I am happy to bring everything to you! At my Lifestyle sessions, I bring all of my props, swaddles and accessories with me. I do a combination of traditional newborn poses so you don’t miss out on those plus lifestyle photography throughout your home. No worries if you have high energy toddlers at home too. I will capture those true smiles and laughs all while incorporating the newest member of your family:)

I currently blend in a 3rd option with all of my newborn sessions. I have become known as the “unposed” Newborn photography style. This typically is a white sheet with a white wrap flowing around the baby. I love this new unique style that looks as it should. Unposed and 100% natural at the same time. Please look below for examples of my most recent lifestyle session that took place.

My spring calendar is filling up, Contact me today if your interested in booking your Newborn Session today!

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.

A very special newborn session

I have no doubt some people come into our lives for a special purpose or meaning. They may come in to our lives to teach us a lesson whether it be good or sometimes bad. I have no doubt 7 years ago my beautiful friend Alyssa came into our lives with nothing but the BEST. It was 7 years ago we made the move from Erie, PA to Northeast Ohio where we knew NO ONE, not one familiar face. Not to mention I had 3 boys age 4 years and under with my youngest being 3 months old. To say that was the hardest point in my life was an understatement. To pack up, leave all of your familiar surroundings, friends and family you have known for decades-hard, very hard. It wasn't all roses and rainbows once we were settled and moved in either. I still didn't have those familiar streets to drive on or friendly faces to chat with. I missed running into my old neighbors at the grocery store. Its these little things many people don't even realize are very special to us, until they are gone.

Moving is not for the faint of heart, but I then I was so happy to have Alyssa walk into our life. I was looking for a babysitter to help out so Jason and I could have a date night here and there. We so needed some occasional nights out. Even though I never wanted to leave my kids, I knew it was best for us to get a break. I didn't have Grandma down the street to watch my boys or my newborn. I found Alyssa and after talking with her we clicked and for the first time I felt like I could leave my kids with her while Jason and I went our for dinner.

The years past and Alyssa would continue to watch our kids so we could have our "date nights" together. Not only did she watch my kids grow, I watch her grow as well. From the single 20 something year old girl working on her masters to finding her future husband. I watched as she found her now husband Jason to the announcement she was expecting her very own baby! What?! The very own young lady that watched my kids would know be having one of her own. Life has a funny thing of coming full circle and it sure did. She then asked me to photograph her very own precious baby boy! To say I was honored is an understatement and couldn't have been more thrilled to document this special time for them.

I wish nothing but the best for the A. Family! I know you both are terrific parents and baby Jase is so lucky to have you as his parents! I look forward to now watching him grow into a special little boy:)
