Baby A - In Home Newborn Lifestyle Photography | Cleveland, Ohio

Welcome Baby A!  This little lady made her entrance a few weeks earlier than expected so even though she is almost 2 months old in these photos she is still like a tiny newborn - and sleeps like one too!  She slept 95% of the time I was there and the session went by so fast - I think it was the quickest newborn session I've ever done.  I'm so glad I got to meet this family, they are so nice and laid back and were a lot of fun to work with. 

I shot this entire session with the new Sigma Art 24mm 1.4 lens - I'm in LOVE with this lens.  It has not come off my camera since I got it and it rarely misses a shot.  I highly recommend it!

Val and Elliot - Married!

Last weekend I had the pleasure of photographing my cousin-in-law's wedding.  This may seem way off base from what you usually see from me, but for the past two years I have been second shooting weddings and have fallen in love with documenting a day so full of happiness and love. So when Val and I talked about me acting as the solo photographer I was nervous but because they are so laid back and I was also very excited.   As you can hopefully see from the photos, the wedding was awesome.  These two are so in love with each other and are surrounded by so much love from their families.  Thanks for trusting me to capture your day!

As a little announcement, I am really excited that I am now an associate photographer for Full Bloom Photography.  Kayla is nothing short of amazing and I have learned (and am still learning) so much from being her second shooter.  I have no plans to launch into the wedding world on my own since my kids are my first priority for my time and let's face it, both weddings and kids take up huge amounts of time!  As an associate I will shoot small, intimate weddings under FBP and Kayla will handle all the emailing, scheduling, editing, designing, ordering, etc.  I'm really excited about this opportunity so spread the word!

Happy Moms Day Little Sis - Rocky River, OH Newborn Photography

Happy first mother's day little sis!  I am so proud of you and am amazed at how well you have adapted into your new role as 'mom', as if being a mom is just something that you were meant to be.   I love that we have motherhood in common now, that I can give you advice when you ask and that I can be your cheerleader.    I feel that when this little man was born,  a new and stronger friendship was born for us as well and I am so thankful for that.  I'm so happy our kids can grow up together and I'm looking forward to all the wonderful experiences we will have as a family.  You are already an incredible mother and I hope you have a wonderful first Mother's Day!
