Mirjam and her hubby recently relocated to Ohio from Germany. If it were me and I moved to a new country and I was expecting my first child so far away from my family and friends, I’d be a little bit nervous. But not these two. They seem like they are so excited to take on this new experience in a new country and I’m so excited that they chose me to be there to help photograph these special moments and memories so they CAN share it with their loved ones that are a few thousand miles away. Sessions such as this always remind me why I love what I do so much.
It’s hard to believe that a year has past since I last saw Mr. Avi. This handsome little man has grown so much and I’m absolutely in love with his head of curls and bright blue eyes! We were lucky enough to get a beautiful March spring day in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and I had a blast playing and photographing with this little guy and his amazing parents. I also got news that Avi is going to be a big brother! Such exciting stuff! I look forward to getting to photograph again this soon to be family of 4!
And just a fun comparison to see how much Avi has grown over the last year! Craziness! I didn’t think he could get any cuter…but he managed.
Have I mentioned lately that I’ve been doing a lot of maternity and newborn sessions? (See last post for reference! Haha). This big boy (all 9.9 lbs of adorable baby chunk), aka Mr Emmett , made his appearance right after Saint Patty’s day! His mom and dad sure are LUCKY because he’s a cutie pie! Check out some favorites below!
It seems like lately I have been doing nothing but maternity and newborn photo sessions. You know what though? When I get to photograph adorable little bundles of joy as cute as little Miss Evelyn, I am in ABSOLUTELY okay and in love with this fact! Congrats to Shauna and Michael on the addition of this sweet, beautiful, little girl!
I had such a good time photographing little Mr. Casey. He was such a calm baby and had the most pinchable baby chub I’ve seen in a while! Love those baby cheeks! Haha. And you NEED to see just how handsome he looked in a denim vest and also his football knit cap! Check out a few of my favorite photos from spending the afternoon with the Yanko family.
Back in February, Chad and Jackie welcomed their beautiful baby girl, Miss Naomi, into the world. It was love at first sight for this new mom and dad team and I can see why. Naomi is definitely a cutie pie! Check out some of my favorite photos from their session below.
Miss A is seriously the sweetest little peanut around! Those adorable eyes and that beautiful smile of hers just won me over! And what better way to celebrate a first birthday with this sweat pea than with some pearls, pigtails, tutu’s and a super yummy smash cake! Happy first birthday, Miss A!
I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph the Taylor family since they welcomed their eldest daughter, Grier, 2 years ago. And this sweet little girl has definitely grabbed a good chunk of my heart over the past 2 years. And now, this past December, the family welcomed the newest addition, baby Kate. And she is just as adorable as her big sister. I think my heart might just burst from all the adorableness I see whenever I head over to their home. Here’s a peek as some of that cuteness…see what I mean?!
Remember those days when you and all your friends are off to college…some maybe just an hour or two drive, but others a few states away. It can be rough when you have a close knit group of friends that you grew up with and you used to see day in and day out. So when the holidays come and you get to head home and see them all again, it’s a pretty wonderful thing. Leigh contacted me because she wanted to capture some moments with her friends/family that are nearest and dearest to her during their holiday break. I thought this was an a-MAZ-ing idea! It actually got me thinking that maybe I, too, needed to get some professional photos done of me with some of those friends that mean the world to me.
So here are a few of my favorites below. I loved the carefree, fun, and goofiness of this group! And they were so awesome to deal with the frigid cold temps we had to work with that day!
Amanda & Cole welcomed their first born baby girl into the world at the beginning of this November. Life got a little hectic for this newly expanded family (as would be expected), so we actually ended up photographing baby Callista a little before she turned 2-months-old. So while these may not quite be “newborn” photos, it actually worked out in our favor as I think this sweet pea was a little more attentive and wide-eyed (with her gorgeous blue eyes) than she may have been at only a week old. So have no fear if you are running behind the eight ball! We can still make sure to capture some precious moments of your little one. Here are a few from my session with baby Callista!
An adorable baby, a ridiculous sailor hat, and a charming doggie. What else could you possibly ask for to make one of the CUTEST baby sessions ever?! Throw in baby Marco’s insanely beautiful parents (Carmela + Ben) and you will see why I was in heaven photographing this session. Check out some of my favorite images below (and believe me, it was hard to narrow them down to this many!)
Now that the December holidays have concluded, it’s time to do a little catch up with some of the holiday portrait sessions on the blog! I know it’s the new year and some of you may have already put your Christmas trees away (scrooges! Haha), but I held off on sharing these because I didn’t want to ruin the surprise for anyone’s holiday cards that they sent out to friends and family!
So here are a few of my favorites from these sessions. I’m so incredibly thankful to have such wonderful clients! I hope all of you enjoyed your holidays and that you have much love, wealth, & happiness in 2013!
