Baby Viviana – An Olmsted Falls Family Session

Being a mom has changed me, you guys! I’m going to be honest for a second. Family sessions haven’t always been my jam. It’s not because I don’t love children. It’s because I didn’t know anything about them. I didn’t know what age kids started to walk, or how breakable they are. I didn’t know...

The Bowen Family | A Berea Family Photo Session at Coe Lake

I’ve known Lauren for about 13 years now. We went to the same high school, and most of our time together was probably spent in the dark room. Over the years, we’ve kept in touch and I’m so glad we have. I’ve loved watching her sweet family grow (one perfect little one at a time),...

Making The Most of Your Family Photos

I bet if you think real hard about your life, you could tell me a weird story about an experience getting your photo taken. It might even involve some Old Navy flag tees. Family Photos can be strange and wonderful things. But my hope is to make them a little more wonderful and a whole...

The Solyntjes Family in the Avon Sunflower Field

When planning sessions, especially family sessions, I always recommend that clients choose outfits that “go together” without necessarily “matching” each other. And often times, I get asked to see examples. I’m not sure why because I’m always so great at explaining things. (sarcasm) From now on, when a clients wants to know what they should...

Little Jack – An Avon Portrait Session

When I was about 8 years old, I only wanted one thing for my life – to be tiny. I’m not talking lose-a-few-pounds tiny. I mean straight up fit-in-your-pocket tiny. Honey We Shrunk Ourselves was my favorite movie, and The Borrowers wasn’t far behind. The idea of being enveloped by my surroundings was the most...

The Bowen Family – A Rocky River Portrait Session

One of the things I’ve loved about starting this business has been connecting with people I haven’t seen in a while. Lauren and I went to high school together. Life took us both out of state for college, and 8 years later, we find ourselves back in the place it all began. I was so excited...
