Dinner in the City
Several weeks ago I had the opportunity to have dinner in the city.  Well, just outside the city in one of the largest urban farms in the US.  My good friends at Spice of Life Catering were having one of their Plated Landscape dinners there.  A wonderfully prepared meal using produce from the gardens in Cleveland's Ohio City and a ...

Mother’s Day
It's fitting that today is Mother's Day since this is Katie's first Mother's Day with little Phil.  Of course, he's not so little anymore.  He's six months old.  It doesn't seem like it's been that long since I met them at their home to take his newborn photos.  Can't wait to see them in another six months to take his first birthda ...

Dance Ballet in the City
I had a free morning in Washington, DC about a week ago and put out a blast on social media to see if I could find someone to dance ballet in the city for me.  My calls were answered and on a brisk Spring morning I met up with Barri to explore a bit.  We started at the City Center shopping area and found this wonderful background o ...

Wedding at the Lake Erie Building
When I first met with Beth and Mike, they told me they were having their wedding  at the Lake Erie Building.  That's when I knew I wanted to be a part of their wedding.  I'd had studio space in the building for a couple of years so I understood the potential for great pictures there.  Then they told me that Spice of Life was cateri ...
Jessica and Kevin’s Engagement Photos

One Afternoon with Candice
I spent one afternoon with Candice about a month ago.  She's been a client of mine for many years and I always look forward to having her in front of my camera.  It's been a few years since we've seen each other but she's always thought about doing a session like this and finally she got up the courage to go for it.  I'm glad she d ...

Let It Snow
It might be a little more like Spring in Northeast Ohio this week, but back in early December, I was ready to let it snow - a lot.  On one of the first heavy snowfalls of the season I got my favorite model, Bailey, to head out into the snow with me for a morning a making beautiful portraits.  We walked a local park stopping here an ...

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!

Family Portraits
I met John, Noreen and their children for a family portrait session late last fall, just around Thanksgiving.  We took advantage of the warm weather Ohio was still fortunate enough to be having and worked around an old farm near their home for some fantastic outdoor shots.
South High Senior Dino
Willoughby South High Senior Dino and I met up in Downtown CLE last fall.  We started down around the Rock Hall but made our way to the place where he really feels at home.  The Cleveland State Natatorium.  Dino is made to swim.  He lives to be in the pool.  He wins races.  He sets records.  He has enough medals to cover his outstr ...

Welcome Baby Phil to the World
A couple months back Katie and Michael had the amazing experience of being able to welcome baby Phil to the world.  Their young family has begun to grow.  I was fortunate to meet Phil just a few days after he was born.  Today he is two months old and growing fast.  His parents love him more every day.

Fall Lifestyle Session
I look forward to seeing Laura, RP and their girls every fall for their lifestyle session of photos.  Once again, I met them on a beautiful Autumn morning that had the trees full of fantastic colored leaves and a sky of puffy clouds on bright blue.  We played in the yard, climbed rocks, threw leaves and drove around in our Jeeps!   ...

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 ...
