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}”

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}”

A look back at 2019 {my life, a personal post}

Well, that’s it kids. 2019 was something. This is going to be a super personal post for me, I’m not gonna lie. This was a tough one for me. The first five months of the year were just like, 10,000 kicks in the gut personally. Work was great, but man. This post is going toContinue reading “A look back at 2019 {my life, a personal post}”

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}”

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}”

The one about the Thing {cleveland writing photographer}

Just as a heads up, there won’t be a heck of a lot of photos in this, and it’s super personal (albeit a bit rambling). I have always thought that every person has a thing that they’re supposed to do with their lives. Some people are born knowing their thing- my sister wanted to beContinue reading “The one about the Thing {cleveland writing photographer}”

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 goContinue reading “It’s going to be better than you think {cleveland family photographer}”

Stylized session {cleveland kids photographer}

Earlier in the spring, my designer friend Natalie Gartner owner of Little Miss Party Planner put together the most amazing tea party. We had two beautiful little girls, who got to enjoy *real* macarons, cake, and treats! There were felted craft pieces to fill in some decor, and Natalie’s own real tea set. The details ofContinue reading “Stylized session {cleveland kids photographer}”

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 toContinue reading “When we met Cameron {cleveland newborn photographer}”
