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.

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.

How to: create a holiday silhouette

A year or so ago, I typed up a post about silhouettes but because Word Press is sort of the devil, it got eaten and is lost in the pits of internet mystery. So here goes with Take 2: Holiday Silhouette. Long story short– expose for your tree lights, focus on your people, under exposingContinue reading “How to: create a holiday silhouette”

A really HUGE fall catch-up post

If that isn’t a catchy title, I don’t know what is. It has been an absolute whirlwind fall. Every year I tell myself I’m not going to take on so much- I’ll spend more time with my family.

Photography HOW TO: photograph fireworks!

** originally published July 2016*** Ah, the Fourth of July. Picnics, parties, beer, and brats (that’s bratwurst, not BRATS, well… hopefully not brats 😉  ) And of course, there are fireworks.

I saw a really good post over on newbornphotography.com about taking safe photos during the holiday season. To most of us pros, they are common sensical but there are a lot of people who will try to take photos themselves (and hey man, more power to you if you want to give it a shot). One ofContinue reading “Safety in photography: holiday edition”
