Baby C : 9.29.15

As I emailed the link to Mom this morning, I realized I never posted a preview!

I have been absolutely slammed with work and editing, it has been fun and rewarding at the same time. If you’re still waiting on pictures from me, know that they are coming!

I went through grade and high school with both Mom and Dad. I shot their wedding and now here I am capturing more important moments for them, I couldn’t be more excited!

Here are some highlights from their in home session last week!

The V Family : 9.20.15

It was a pleasure meeting this family and working with them for the first time! They were so loving and wonderful with each other, I barely gave any direction…it was so nice!

This was a quick mini shoot in the Old River area in Rocky River.

Baby R : 7.21.15

VERY excited to meet this little one! He was born to VERY deserving parents who are wonderful people. It always fills my heart with joy to see loving people welcome a baby. This is such a special time for all of them and I was very happy to capture these moments for them.

The new parents were handling this time like pros. Seriously. You would never guess that this was their first time around. It was so fun to watch them interact with him, they were both so calm and collected. I still have not reached a point of being calm and collected, my children are 7 and almost 2. Totally jealous of how relaxed they are!

I was so happy to incorporate their dog into these photos!

Carrie looks so great, she was only a few days post partum here and looked beautiful! This is such a special time for new families and I always make sure to incorporate them in the photos, even if they are basically zombies!

The M Family : 7.13.15

Been meaning to add a couple shoots I did last week!

This mama happens to be a photographer and was kind enough to hire me to do her family’s photos! Its always flattering when this happens and it always reminds me that I really need someone to do our photos (haven’t done them in 4 years, oops)

The little ladies in this family were not dishing out their smiles, but I find candid and natural photos to be best anyway! The smiles I did get were both beautiful and genuine!

The Pryor Family : 6.26.15

I was super excited to do this shoot because I used to work with this beautiful mama at my first job in high school at Malley’s Chocolates. We hadn’t seen each other since the days of hustling ice cream in our little green aprons and black mini skirts. Now we are both married with kids and she recently added another little bundle of joy to her family and was kind of enough to ask me to come photograph him.

He is beautiful. This is not surprising because his mama is stunning!

The little guys brother and sister were hysterical. Kept me on my toes the whole shoot and I really enjoyed being around them. They are so much fun!

I always tell parents to just let things be, let kids be kids and just relax. I cannot stress this enough. Some of the best images come from kids just being themselves. These are memories you can’t get back and memories your kids will cherish as adults. I just adore these family shots!

I did a quick mini shoot for a friend of mine last week, here are a couple examples!
