Sisters | Northeast Ohio Sibling Lifestyle Photographer

The C Family | Newborn Lifestyle Photographer | Cleveland, Ohio

Sweet baby Rowan was welcomed into one of the greatest families I've met in a long time. She has 3 big brothers and 2 big sisters to guide her through life. What an incredibly lucky little lady! All of her siblings are so fond of her and begged to be the next to hold her.
Being a mother of 3 myself,  I know what it's like to see my older children react to the baby of the family. It makes your heart feel so full. I'm a believer in big families. And small families. And I suppose families in general. I can't imagine a greater gift to give my children than a sibling and the fuel to build and maintain a lifelong bond to one another.
She is beautiful and such a blessing. Congratulations, C Family. You're family is incredible and I'm thankful to have grown so close to all of  you. I hope that sweet little Rowan enjoys her very first Christmas!

The K Family | Olmsted Falls Family Photographer

It's been awhile since I've had the chance to post some shots from my recent sessions. I've been so busy and I'm so thankful to have been able to provide for my own family but also to have been able to provide something meaningful for all of your families. The best part of my "job" is hearing your response after our session together. I've received countless emails, cards, and phone calls thanking me for my "work" but also for my time. I appreciate that everyone understands that after spending an afternoon together I go home and edit each photo individually. I'm blown away by the amazing compliments I'm given and I'm so thankful to be able to work with such incredible families. Thank you to all of my clients for being so great and for trusting me with your memories.

Another A Family| Lakewood Family Photographer

Take Flight

I adore this shot of my little guy. We attended a Halloween Party last week and he was dressed as a fighter pilot complete with a vintage fighter plane costume that strapped over his little man bomber jacket. He looked awesome. The boy loves to fly and adores anything with wings.

He's such a confident little man. Until he's in a brand new situation and he kinda clams up. We had just walked down those stiars behind him and he saw a big party with about a million kids running around. He was so scared and quietly asked if we could go back home.  My husband (also known as the most incredible man a girl could ask for) asked Jack for his airplane costume and attempted to slip it onto his adult body and proceeded to zoom around the crowd. The picture above is of Jack looking up to his dad being... well.... a pretty great dad.

 I love the men in my life.
