Mystery Film is Mysterious {cleveland film photographer}

Last week, my cousin and her girlfriend brought me a BAG FULL of mystery film. I’m talking about 30 rolls of film. As best we know, it was just kept in a drawer. There were two rolls of a Fujifilm I can’t find anything about, and like 28 rolls of this other brand which apparentlyContinue reading “Mystery Film is Mysterious {cleveland film 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 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}”

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 IContinue reading “wendy b photos roundup {cleveland family photographer}”

Mason {cleveland newborn} a TBT post

Oh, Mason Detail collages get me in all the feels. I love seeing those newborn lips, and those mushy cheeks, and the little noses, and those itty bitty ear folds. When I can, I like to create a little birth announcement for my newborn clients.  Even if you don’t purchase 150 and mail them, it’s alwaysContinue reading “Mason {cleveland newborn} a TBT post”

Why you should just take the picture :life:

I noticed that I had taken fewer shots of my own kids than “usual”. I was working a lot more, and blabla life stuff, but I love taking pictures of my girls. I looked through the pictures I had and realized—they’re all very “posed”. Not terribly much in the way of our daily life orContinue reading “Why you should just take the picture :life:”

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. I’ll actually hire someone else to take photos of us because I won’t be working every minute!Continue reading “A really HUGE fall catch-up post”

Trying new things {editing with wendy b photos}

I shared on my Facebook page that I had been experimenting with some different editing styles and a friend suggested seeing the side by side which is a great idea 🙂 The newer edits are more matte, slightly film like. In this first example, you can see how vivid the fall colors are. A lotContinue reading “Trying new things {editing with wendy b photos}”

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’m sure there’s a long and delightful history about why we Americans light up the skies with fireworks and you’re welcome to Google that informationContinue reading “Photography HOW TO: photograph fireworks!”

Cassy + Jason {fall family photos}

I wrapped up my nephew’s birthday and dove face first into my incredibly packed fall family schedule. I was lucky enough to shoot baby Alison when she was newborn, and getting to see her as a toddler was such a treat. Her big brothers are so much fun. They’re the perfect combination of silly and sweet.Continue reading “Cassy + Jason {fall family photos}”
