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}”

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}”

Welcoming Calvin {cleveland newborn photographer}

There is nothing better than when your friends have a baby! This summer, I got to meet Calvin who was born to Brandon and Leah. I made the trip over to their home for some lifestyle photos, followed by some lightly posed newborns. The first few weeks after a baby is born can be soContinue reading “Welcoming Calvin {cleveland newborn photographer}”

Oh film… how I love it {cleveland film photographer}

These are all personal shots I’ve grabbed with either my Nikon F100, my Nikon FG, or my Vivitar v3000s 35mm film cameras. I feel so much more relaxed shooting my everyday minutes. Clearly, I photograph my kitties often and a lot. We took some time at the Cleveland Museum of Art and played in theContinue reading “Oh film… how I love it {cleveland film photographer}”

The one about the Thing {cleveland writing photographer}

Just as a heads up, there won’t be a heck of a lot of photos in this, and it’s super personal (albeit a bit rambling). I have always thought that every person has a thing that they’re supposed to do with their lives. Some people are born knowing their thing- my sister wanted to beContinue reading “The one about the Thing {cleveland writing photographer}”

Welcoming Bodhi {cleveland newborn photographer}

Winter newborns in full effect 😉 Spending time with Heather, Andrew, and precious Bodhi was wonderful. They were such naturals. Their clothing was perfect, natural and neutral without being fussy. If you ever have questions about what to wear for your session, let me know! I’m happy to help with selections. Sweet Bodhi snoozed throughContinue reading “Welcoming Bodhi {cleveland newborn photographer}”

Photography how to: create star bursts

Oooooh, bright shiny lights. I love how the tree is glowing and the lights are bursting, don’t you? I’m going to talk you through how you can take a picture of your family’s tree (if you have one). You will need a basic understanding of photography, you’ll need to understand shutter speed, but that’s notContinue reading “Photography how to: create star bursts”

It’s going to be better than you think {cleveland family photographer}

Corynn and Dan found their way to me, via referrals from two (!!) happy clients and I’m so glad they did. Their sweet boys, Dominic and Leo were a joy to photograph. Dan, like most men, came into the session with ideas about how it would go– and he was thinking it would not goContinue reading “It’s going to be better than you think {cleveland family photographer}”

Film snapshots {cleveland film photographer}

Early today, in a photography group I belong to on Facebook, we were talking about “going back to film”. I’ve mentioned before that there was no “going back” to film- I didn’t ever really shoot film, except for little point and shoot pictures like was the only thing available to most of us in aContinue reading “Film snapshots {cleveland film photographer}”
