Fall Sale is open! As I have taken a second job, dates in October are very limited. Peak fall color will likely begin October 9th and luckily, there is a space left on that date! If you’d like to book a morning session, or fall session not listed on the given dates, contact me ASAP.Continue reading “What time is it? FALL SALE TIME!”

Family photos… on film? {cleveland film photographer}

I love shooting with film. Don’t get me wrong, the digital film world is pretty cool, and it’s great for when you need something turned around quickly but for me there is nothing like film. I’ve talked before about how digital sessions seem to fly by, and photographers have the ability to “spray and pray”Continue reading “Family photos… on film? {cleveland film photographer}”

Brothers turn 13! {cleveland milestone photographer}

Being an identical twin cannot be easy. As a mother to identical girls, we have been asked every question under the sun, and at the one and only TwinsFest we attended we were asked for DNA swabs, to allow strangers to touch and hold the girls (who were two!), and a woman asked, “are thoseContinue reading “Brothers turn 13! {cleveland milestone photographer}”

Updates and rebuilds {cleveland family photographer}

I updated and rebuilt my website this winter! I had great help from my friend Kelli, who got the ball rolling for me. You’ll find clickable scheduling links, a simple, straightforward design, and easy to follow pages. More changes are coming, but I’m proud of the progress I was able to make with the helpContinue reading “Updates and rebuilds {cleveland family photographer}”

Film Year in Review {cleveland film photographer}

Should I be blogging a bunch of catch up sessions from fall? Yep. Am I going to blog a bunch of catch up sessions from fall? Outlook not good. Instead, I spent the last three days (t h r e e D A Y S) building collages for end of year reviews! This is goingContinue reading “Film Year in Review {cleveland film photographer}”

Well, I’ll be… {cleveland photographer}

This year has been. Well, you guys know. Closing down, reopening, and now closing my home studio for the rest of 2020 limiting my shooting/working options (RIP Christmas Minis 2020 : *( I’m not seeing my own family indoors, I can’t be indoors with someone else’s family without feeling like a hypocrite )…. it’s notContinue reading “Well, I’ll be… {cleveland photographer}”

Bringing the joy {cleveland family photographer}

This summer, I feel in love with tall grass shoot-through. It probably had nothing to do with the jungle my own yard becomes 😉 We had a beautiful summer evening and despite a quick detour for a bee sting and some sharing of bee war-wounds (I was stung just a couple days before our sessionContinue reading “Bringing the joy {cleveland family photographer}”

To say thanks… {cleveland gratitude photographer}

This summer, I read about a program that photographers all over the US were participating in. It was a way to say thank you, to the members of our communities who found themselves suddenly more “essential” than they had been prior to March. When a session was purchased at full price in the months ofContinue reading “To say thanks… {cleveland gratitude photographer}”

When Todd was born {cleveland newborn photographer}

This summer, I got to meet sweet little Todd and his momma AND daddy! Daddy had missed *everything* with covid restrictions, so Mommy asked if there was any way at all, Dad could come to the shoot. As it stands my studio space is *not* large enough to accommodate two adults and myself, so withContinue reading “When Todd was born {cleveland newborn photographer}”

Giving back {cleveland family photographer}

What a freaking wild ride 2020 has been, am I right? We learned so much about ourselves and the services we couldn’t live without, that prior to March weren’t even a blip on our radar. I have been trying to think of a way to express appreciation to the people who we maybe didn’t thinkContinue reading “Giving back {cleveland family photographer}”

Nothing but time {cleveland film photographer}

I didn’t shoot any film at all, in January in attempt to save a bit of money, but that all went out of the window in February and now March. I had mentioned earlier, that I have to rate my mystery film at 50 asa (sometimes I rate it at 25!) and what that meansContinue reading “Nothing but time {cleveland film photographer}”
