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 through our session and must have been having sweet dreams; check out that little

Yep, newborn smiles happen! Right place, right time ❤ Look at that little baby fuzz!

 

We laid Bodhi in his crib and Andrew made sure he wasn’t lonely… Bodhi settled right in and snoozed ❤ bgn-57wmbgn-67wm

Yep, more smiles! love love love…

Being able to work in my client’s home is really awesome. It allows everyone to relax, not stress out about bringing all the baby things (and momma things) anywhere! My families never need to worry about picking up or making sure the house is tidy– I’m a mom, too. I am 100% not judging. I often times tell clients who make apologies for their home that I have been there, times two as a twin mom! I am a master at moving whatever needs to be moved out of frame 😉

If you or someone you know is expecting in 2019, make sure you give them my info (wendy@wboycephotos.com : Session Information Here! ) When your friend books, you BOTH earn a little bonus!

Mighton Family {cleveland family photographer}

In usual Cleveland fall fashion for 2018, our scheduled session date was a total washout. Luckily, Tammie, Adam and the girls were able to scoot out during a few good hours for a reschedule! 

The family had recently lost their sweet kitty, so when Mila wanted her kitty Smokey to be part of the session, I was happy to oblige ❤ 

Beauties…

Elena had broken her arm, but I had no idea! She is such a natural with posing, I didn’t realize until we had begun shooting. Tammie, her mom let me know that she was in a cast! I could photograph light through that gorgeous hair every single day… you know, if Cleveland had sunshine more than 1x a month. 

Sister snuggle and a moody black and white ❤ Aren’t they adorable?
It’s never too soon to book your family session, and if you go under contract prior to 12.30.18, you’ll lock in 2018 session fee. There is a significant price increase coming in January of 2019, so it may behoove you to book early 😉

Space for everyone {cleveland family photographer}

Every year for the last five years, I have done family sessions for Jackie and her husband Greg, and Greg’s sister Leanne and her family. This year, Leanne moved away (all the sad faces, but happy that she’s happy!) and Jackie asked if we could do a family session… but with all the Fryz women! 

Extended family sessions are so special. They make the family tree a visual. When your kids are growing, they’ll look at these pictures and say, “That’s Aunt Missy! That’s Aunt Jackie!” They’ll see themselves as part of a bigger whole. They’ll see their cousins….

They’ll see the smiles and laughter while playing with their Papa

They’ll see the funny faces Mommy made, the time Daddy held on for dear life, because they wanted to run and play, they’ll see aunts, uncles, Gigi and Papa…and they’ll know these are their people, and their people are love.

Schedule your own extended family session for the 2019 year, by emailing wendy@wboycephotos.com 
Show your babies, the legacy they are part of.

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 go well. No doubt, previous attempts at photos elsewhere hadn’t gone well.
I am very pleased to say, Dan left with a smile on his face, as did his handsome little fellas and his lovely wife ❤

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 a pre-digital era. There are so many fun things I’ve already waxed poetic about when it comes to film- I just wanted to share some of my personal photos, all taken on film. I’ve been using a Nikon FG and a Nikon F100 lately. My daughter Lilly has commandeered my much loved Vivitar v3000s and she has been shooting with it ❤ I’ll include a photo or two of hers, as well! I buy film on Amazon, and have it developed with Old School Photo Lab  If you have any questions about working with film, leave a comment!

So far, my favorite picture of Lilly’s. This is her twin sister Molly, just running and playing. Sun star? Check. Light and shadow? Check. Both of my babies? CHECK!

When we met Cameron {cleveland newborn photographer}

They say there are very few mysteries in life. Kristen and Chris decided that learning the sex of their baby would be a mystery they hung on to ❤  When their precious little one was born in early May, they found out together, that it was a little boy.
I packed up and headed to their home in the Cleveland suburbs to photograph their new little family.  I love doing in-home sessions. They are my #1 favorite session to shoot.

If you’re pregnant and expecting in September 2018 or later (yes, 2019 dates included!) please email me today to book your in-home newborn session.  Let’s get your due date on my calendar! wendy@wboycephotos.com

“Hey, I just met you… and this is crazy. But I’m your baby, so call me maybe…”
