Newborn Portraits
It's always excited when I get to take newborn portraits.  Especially for somebody that I've worked with before so I was very happy to get the call from Haleigh that she was going to be welcoming a little one into her world and that she wanted me to take the first portraits.  So say hello to sweet, little Evelyn!

Solon High School Senior
Cayla is a Solon High School Senior that met up with me for her Class of 2018 Senior Portraits at the Cleveland Museum of Art a few weeks ago.  We spent some time inside and then made it outside for a few shots in between the rain drops.
Westlake High School Class of 2018
This Westlake High School Class of 2018 Senior is a special one.  She's not only my niece but she is also a partner in crime with my two children whenever family gets together.  She done a lot.  She was a star soccer player.  Now she's a star book reader.  I imagine she's read a library's worth of books so it was fitting that we en ...

One Year with Phil
It's been one year with Phil!  That's right!  This little dude is one year old.  It's been so fun watching him grow up and staying in touch with his parents since first met them at their wedding.  Well, I actually first met Katie and her sister's wedding!  It's great to work with families and get to know them well. Phil's first ...

Willoughby South High Class of 2018
Ben is a Willoughby South High Class of 2018 Senior.  He played football there and has bigger plans after graduation.    The morning we met at the park was crisp and cool and a bit like a wildlife adventure.  I'm pretty sure there were more wild  turkey and deer walking around than people!

Class of 2018 Soccer
Nick is a Class of 2018 Soccer player so we met up at the local high school to start of his session.  Unfortunately, the main field was being used by the football team but we found some great light over on the practice field to make a few photos before moving onto a local park.

Class of 2018
Dani is a Class of 2018 Senior at Eastlake North High School.  I met up with her at the Chagrin River Reservation for some pictures before heading to a lake front location to wrap up her session as the sun was going down.  As always, if there is a chance to get wet, then I'll probably talk people into it!  Dani was no different! ...
In the River
I said, "Bailey, our next session should be in the river."  She didn't flinch.  She just asked what she should wear.  So here we are after an hour in the river.  Waist deep.  Stumbling over rocks.  Fading summer light.  Wondering if there are leeches in the water.

Nicole and Greg in Ohio City
I met Nicole and Greg in Ohio City for their portrait session.  We started off with a beer on the patio at Market Garden Brewery before taking a walk down W. 25th Street and stopping here and there to take some great pictures.  It's such a great part of town and one of their favorite places since their first date was at Nano Brew! ...

Susan for Portraits at Sunset
I met Susan for portraits at sunset in a very secluded field I tend to frequent.  She had found my name through a friend and just wanted to try something different.  We spent about an hour walking a nearby path and then venturing far off it into the tall grass and wildflowers just as the light got magical.

Being Beautiful in the Studio
Haleigh  spent an afternoon being beautiful in the studio. Really not much else to say about this except to get in touch if you'd like to have a session like this for yourself or to share with that special someone in your lift!

Hanna at the Beach
I met Hanna at beach and my studio for her Class of 2017 Senior portraits.  We were going to do some more formal things inside but the weather was so perfect that we just worked around the outdoor space at my studio and then headed to Edgewater park to play a bit on beach and in waves.  It was a great session.  Hanna's huge smile l ...

Family Portraits at Shaker Lakes
I met up with Dan, Lauren, Wes, and Addie on a fall morning for their Family Portraits at Shaker Lakes. Last time I saw the family was on their wedding day back a couple of years ago. Wes was the main man back then, but now he's busy being an awesome big brother to little Addie. We caught up a bit and strolled around the park. W ...
