The Starman Family | A Richfield, Ohio Family Photo Session

This season has been so full of wonderful clients + gorgeous weddings that I haven’t had a chance to share much with you. We’ve got a lot to catch up on.

In case this blog is the only way you keep up with what’s going on in my life, I’m having a baby! Navigating a summer / fall full of work and pregnancy has been a new experience but honestly not nearly as difficult as I had prepared myself for. Slowly becoming a mom myself has given me a whole new perspective on the importance of photos not just in the milestone moments, but in all the in betweens, too. I’m already thinking about how important it’s going to be to capture each little phase of our sweet baby’s life, and I’m so excited that I get to give that to other people.

My business looks a lot different than it did when I began. For the first few years, I only worked with couples but I’m so glad that’s changed. Weddings + Engagements are still my jam, but the opportunity to work with people in all different phases of life has been such a pleasure. Many of my weeks look like nothing but babies and little kids and I’m loving it.

I’ve known the beautiful girl in these photos since I was probably 12 years old. Life has changed drastically for both of us since then, but I was so excited when she reached out for photos of her + her husband, along with their 4 gorgeous children.

When I take family photos, we let the kids run around. They pick flowers and find rocks. Let them explore and the smiles will come.

Shilpi + Nanak – A Cleveland Museum of Art Maternity Session

When I started taking photos so very long ago, I wasn’t sure where I wanted to spend my time, but maternity + newborn photos weren’t even on my radar.

Years later, and countless new families under my belt, I’m just really glad things worked out the way they have, because I get to meet people like Shilpi + Nanak during some of the most special times of their lives.

I can’t wait to meet another little one.

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 to meet her husband Dan & their sweet daughter, Hailee.

We, along with the rest of the West side of Cleveland, spent this gorgeous evening at Rocky River park. If I had to pick my favorite thing about Cleveland, it would 100% be Lake Erie. There are so many unexpected spots along the lake that are perfect for these warm evening sunsets. Hailee loved the sand, and I loved her little smile. It was a win all around. : )

With Mother’s Day coming up, I thought I’d show you a few of my favorite images of Lauren & Hailee.

Baby Gideon – A Cleveland Newborn Session

You’ve actually already met baby Gideon – sort of. Remember these maternity photos I took this fall? That was this little guy just a couple months ago. This weekend I got to spend some precious time with Liz and her sweet family again. Big sister is adjusting to having two tiny little hands to hold and she’s loving every second of it.

These are the first couple weeks of a lifetime as brother & sister. That’s so special. & I feel so lucky to be a small part of it all.

If you’ve got little ones running around, or a new addition to your family, I’d love to help you capture these special & fleeting times.
