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 the cherry blossoms, I experimented with light leaks… all fun, cool things ❤

I am like insanely behind posting client sessions, which is awful… someday I’ll get on that. I just get so excited to share film! I get to shoot a super amazing session partially on film this week and I CaNNoTTT WaiiTTT!!!

As a heads up, my July Saturdays are spoken for, but I have plenty of weeknights available for all kinds of sessions ❤

wendy b photos roundup {cleveland family photographer}

2018 seems to have gone by really quickly- I remember being freaked out about going to Costa Rica with my husband for a weekend trip he earned at his place of business. I get scared to travel anywhere (I’m mid mental breakdown about a trip to Maui, HI I’m taking very shortly). Even though I like going to these cool new places, I get totally freaked out. Leaving my kids, my responsibilities… shouldn’t I be trying to book work rather than take time off? Ugh. This Maui trip is messing with my head pretty badly, especially when I look back and see I didn’t book a single thing for January but to be fair, my daughters have been out of school until the 7th, I have to be back home in PA on the 12th for an event, and I leave on the 15th, almost all of my weekends are spoken for.

I tried to set focus, and handed my camera to my husband. One shot came out.

I got to shoot some really great newborns, and I’m looking forward to meeting even more babies this year (it’s never too early to book your newborn session, please PLEASE do not wait until the last minute).

I shot so.much.film; I loved every freaking second of it. There hasn’t been a single shot that I was like, “Oh dang, missed it,” because even the shots that don’t come out perfectly, are perfect. Photography has always been about the moment, right? So sometimes, what matters isn’t what is “in focus” but what’s going on around the focus. Maybe that’s too meta. IDK. So many pictures of 2/3rds of our cats (the tuxedo cat is Fiffen/ Olive, the orange and white one is Beep)…

Best Tummy of 2018 ^^

I don’t have any idea what 2019 will bring. If we’ve worked together, I’d love to see you again. I’d love for you to tell a friend about your experience, I’d love to give you both referral credits 😉 I’d love for you to ask for a film session (yes, I am offering film for client work now). I’d love to keep growing this business. I really would. Every year it gets harder and harder, but you guys keep me going and I thank you for that. On to 2019 friends. Let’s see what we can create together. Check out https://www.wboycephotos.com and when you’re ready, email me: wendy@wboycephotos.com. Whatever you want, we can make it happen.

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.

Extended Family session {CLE Family Photographer}

If you’re lucky enough to have your family nearby, you’re lucky enough.
Getting to meet the Pienta clan this summer was a treat. I’ve been shooting for Joey and Mandi for nearly two years now and I recently got to meet Joey’s side of the family 😀 I have a feeling we’ll need to update this extended family photo next year 😉

Ben, Mandi, Joey, Joe, Jack, Karen, Mary Kay

Mary Kay asked for a special photo of she and Mandi together, noting the last photo she had of the two of them, was from Mandi and Joey’s wedding! Happy to oblige, lovelies! Love Mary Kay’s floral top.KJP-30wmThe Pienta ladies ❤ KJP-43wm

Baby Ben wasn’t really feeling posed photos, but he was TOTALLY down for throwing rocks into the creek! Karen and Joe climbed to the creek edge and the three of them played. I shot for a bit on a bridge above the creek….KJP-48wmbut quickly realized that I wanted to be down in the watery action! I love Karen’s face, and that Joe is collecting more rocks for Ben. They have set foundations for such a loving family. Totally worth a couple splashes. I enjoy shooting posed portraits, but I also really love that everyone was totally cool with abandoning the idea and just taking time to play together. KJP-50wmInterested in booking your own extended family session? Email me today at wendy@wboycephotos.com ; I’m currently taking bookings for September! Fall in our area is beautiful, but in my humble opinion, there is *nothing* like summer. The greens, the life, the warmth. I’m having my own family photos taken later this month 😉 Summer fans unite!
