at home with the baldi family | Westlake, Ohio family photographer

this family is awesome.  i spent an evening with them photographing the things they like to do together as a family.  We played legos, jumped on beds and the trampoline, swung on a tire swing, chalked on the sidewalk and went for a family walk.  I love how each kids personality shines through in these photos and that we got to document them as they are right now - from l's bookworm hobby to j's habit of carrying 4 blankies and a sippy cup.  thanks so much baldi family for allowing me to photograph you guys!

The Cassara Family

Last weekend I headed on over to Ann Arbor, Michigan for a newborn session.  I had a few extra butterflies for this session since mom is a talented photographer herself (check out her website here) but like most sessions, my butterflies disappeared once I walked in the door.   This family is fun, laid back, silly, caring, and most of all loving.  I feel very lucky to have been given the opportunity to photograph them as they expanded their crew by one.  Such a great dynamic going on this house.
