Sunshine, blue skies, wildflowers in tall grasses, sweaty faces….all the signs of a lifestyle family session in the summer months. Charlotte and Harper are both June birthday babies, and that’s always a perfect reason to do family photos! Ohio’s recent 90 degree weather was a real doozy, but all my families that had sessions that very hot week were absolute troopers! Having fun when it’s that hot out can be hard, but we just rolled with it and still captured the magic! The girls loved picking bouquets of daisies, and I will always always always include wildflowers in sessions if the opportun ..read more

Chelsea and Jonathan are the embodiment of “just roll with it” when it comes to taking photos! The Molnar fam just welcomed Baby Nash to their world, and this little guy really was thrust right into the craziness of life as a family of four! Big brother Alden was just days away from his second birthday when we did Nash’s lifestyle newborn session at their home in Austintown, and days with a wild toddler and newborn are never boring, ha! One reschedule, a delayed hair appointment, and three iced lattes later, I showed up at their home ready to capture all the beautiful chaos of newborn life ..read more

The idea of taking newborn portraits in your home with a rambunctious toddler and large dogs might sound overwhelming after coming home from the hospital with a tiny babe, but it does not have to be! This relaxed in home lifestyle newborn session with the Henderson family proves that you don’t need much, just a go with the flow attitude and some beautiful window light. And some espresso I loved the pockets of beautiful light tucked around Maggie and Zak’s home, and Maggie’s decor style is just so fun. She mixes family heirlooms with such lovely pieces of art around her home. Baby Lucy’s nur ..read more

Courtney and Brian welcomed their first child to their family in February, and invited me to their home in Pittsburgh PA to capture sweet Colin’s newborn portraits. This little guy was an absolute angel for his entire lifestyle newborn session, and made my job so easy! He was finishing a feeding as I walked in the door, and then was perfectly content to snooze in his parents’ arms for all of our photos. Talk about relaxed! From his button nose and full head of beautiful dark hair, to his perfect little toes, we captured every little baby detail. His daddy played him a song on the guitar, and ..read more

The shock! The tears! The surprise! Tessa had no clue what was happening when she turned around after putting a lock on the iconic Schenley Bridge in Pittsburgh to see Sal pulling a ring out of his pocket and going down on one knee. She was under the impression that she and her boyfriend were just spending the day in Pittsburgh with his sister and her husband, when in reality the whole thing was a cover to ask her to marry him! Sal’s sister Maria helped with the logistics of pulling off this surprise for her little brother, and everything went off without a hitch. From my spot on the Schenle ..read more

How quickly another year has gone by – it’s hard to wrap my mind around. But alas, Hazel is 5 years old, and I think she’s been counting down to this day since her 4th birthday! This girlie’s personality is just so fun, and it was a joy to watch her grow this past year. She loves baking and cooking, and always wants to whip something up in the kitchen. She discovered Disney princesses this year, and Elsa fever has taken over completely….our household can sing both the Frozen soundtracks in our sleep. She loves allll things worms and toads, and spent most of spring and summer digging in the di ..read more

They didn’t know gender ahead of time, and HE is a BOY and he’s HERE!! Welcome to the world, sweet James David! This little squish had quite an eventful arrival, but he is here and his parents already can’t imagine life without him. James’ due date was actually shared with my December birthday, so I was really rooting for us to be birthday twins! But he was just way too cozy in his mama’s belly and decided to take his good ol’ time arriving in January. Amanda and Jimmy are already the best parents despite a whirlwind entry to parenthood. This lifestyle newborn session at their home was so rel ..read more

Finding the perfect location and theme for my annual Christmas session tradition is something I honestly have on my radar 12 months out of the year! I am always on the lookout for a possibility for next year’s Christmas sessions! Well last year my family and I went on the Christmas in Salem House Tour, and one of the stops on the tour was Greenisen Farm. We toured the beautiful historic farmhouse rich in family history, and out behind the farmhouse I noticed the most charming little maple syrup building. This was in December, just a couple weeks after my Greenhouse Christmas sessions! I snapp ..read more

Fall here in Northeast Ohio was an absolute stunner this year, and photographers everywhere were in our glory photographing portraits in the peak foliage! Amanda and Jimmy are expecting their first babe right after Christmas, and we celebrated with some maternity portraits documenting their joy and excitement, and Amanda‘s cutest lil baby bump. They are keeping the gender a surprise, which I loooove! Not finding out if it’s a boy or girl is such fun, but I know not everyone can handle the anticipation. I personally loved having a pregnancy where we did not find out ahead of time. Amanda is th ..read more

When Ashley contacted me about planning a fall family session this year, I immediately loved her idea. Her husband Chris’s family has a property in Berlin Center that has been in the family for years, where they have made countless memories with their loved ones. Acres and acres of beautiful fields and farmland, and we hit peak October foliage that was so lovely. This is even where Chris proposed to Ashley over a decade ago! I just love a meaningful location for sessions, and this one was definitely a special one. The family will be selling the property soon, and so getting to go back here on ..read more
