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}”

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.

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}”

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}”

Mother Nature got me again {Cleveland indoor Mini update}

On my Facebook page , I mentioned that Mother Nature had a way of throwing curve balls at me in the Spring, and wowie, I tell you what, I did NOT see “global pandemic” coming. I’ve reached out to everyone who had booked the indoor mini sessions I had scheduled in the next couple weeks, butContinue reading “Mother Nature got me again {Cleveland indoor Mini update}”

13 and changes… {cleveland teen photographer}

Milestones come at all points in life. We celebrate when our babies pick their heads up. We celebrate the first time they lock eyes with us and smile. We celebrate when they do that tri-pod sit. And then when they pull themselves up to stand… and toddle off. We celebrate their first days of school.Continue reading “13 and changes… {cleveland teen photographer}”

The P family {cleveland family photographer}

I love watching families grow and lucky for me, Bryce, Maria, and Dex-a-doo are friends! ❤ Dex was just about to turn three when we shot these family photos! He hilariously directed his mother, told me about helicopters, and motorcycles… and showed me his feet… I love working with kids of all ages. Toddlers areContinue reading “The P family {cleveland family photographer}”

Fall Fashion guide {cleveland family photographer}

You’ve done it! You’ve booked your FALL MINI SESSION, you’ve told the family they need to be on their best behavior for twenty minutes, you’re looking forward to making your holiday cards and it hits you… now you need to dress everyone. “What should we wear?” The first thing I do, is look inside ourContinue reading “Fall Fashion guide {cleveland family photographer}”

A little birthday love {cleveland family photographer}

My 40th birthday is fast approaching and the other night, my husband and daughters shocked the crap out of me– they gave me the lens I have been saving all year for :O There’s a cute story to go along with it. The three of them had gone out to shop for me last weekend.Continue reading “A little birthday love {cleveland family photographer}”

Oh the babies… {cleveland newborn photographer}

Instead of trying (and failing) to play catch up, I’m just going to fill this post with some of my babies from this year. It’s already July (holy smokes, 2019 is flying by) and I realized I have not made good use of this blog! I love to write, and I love to share myContinue reading “Oh the babies… {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}”
