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.

Please contact me today if you would like to schedule your Fresh 48 Photography Session

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.

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.

An new precious boy now makes a family of 3

Its amazing how much newborn photography has really been invited and become and new icon in the world of photography. My oldest was born in 2006 so even just 12 years ago Newborn Photography and the classic newborn poses really didn't exist much. There were a few places that would photograph but nothing like today. I look back at my sons pictures and wish I knew then what I know now about newborn photography. Or even motherhood I'm sure that statement could be applied for:)

I am so grateful for all of the new parents that have turned to me and allowed me to photography their precious little ones. This is such an important and exciting time in a families life. They are technically only a newborn for about 1 month! The best time I recommend for parents to have the newborn pictures taken is Day 4- Day 12 of life. 

I greatly enjoyed my time with the J. Family who recently became a family of 3. This sweet little guy had to be one of my most laid back babies that came to visit me at my home-studio. The benefits of my Newborn Mini Sessions is the convenience of it only lasting for 1 hour. I understand and get it not everyone is up to the 2 hour family newborn session but definitely want to capture those newborn moments. My Newborn Mini Sessions are 1 hour and take place at my small in home studio. At these sessions we focus on the newborn with my simply beautiful poses and a few prop poses depending on the the what the client would prefer. My style is more relaxed and less fussy. I find more beautiful in the baby on bright white sheets and simple swaddles covering them. However if you were hoping for your little one to look like a turtle with a shell and hat as well, I would be more than happy to complete that look for you;)

Large Family Sessions | Mentor, Ohio Photographer

I was asked by a friend of mine to capture her parents with their kids and all the grandkids. Often time family sessions are great for the immediate family but we can't forget Grandma/Grandpa and all the cousins! Do you have someone celebrating a 50th Wedding Anniversary! The present to the would a picture of their kids with their own kids! When I do large family sessions not only do a shoot the large group and cousins, but also focus on each small family as well. Its a great time to get updated photos for the whole family.

If your interested in getting an Extended Family Session please contact me for specific pricing rates. My family sessions listed on the site are for families up to 6 people.

We were able to meet at a local park shortly after sunrise when had the most beautiful soft light. This again is a favorite of mine with the pond, bridge and open grass area.
