Ballet in the Flats
I met Jessica through North Pointe Ballet and this Spring we met up to do a session away from the performance stage and in the streets of downtown Cleveland. It was a pretty chilly evening when we met on the East Bank of the Flats for our session but the sun was shining! We managed to only shiver in between photos!
Cleveland Contemporary Dance
Bryant is a dancer relatively new to the Cleveland area. He reached out to me about updating some shots for his portfolio after seeing some images I made for a friend of his. We met earlier this year on a day that we thought was warm, but really, how warm is it in March?
The Nutcracker Ballet
I was very fortunate to get the opportunity to photography the Nutcracker Ballet as performed by North Pointe Ballet. I started early during their warm-ups and then was given access to go anywhere on stage as they ran a full costume dress rehearsal of the show from beginning to end. Here are just a few of my favorite images! ...
Wedding in Vermillion
I went to a wedding in Vermillion. The rain came and went the night before and it turned into a beautiful late summer day. Since my nephew was the groom it was the rare opportunity to spend a day "working" with my family! Things started out unlike they always do. This wild card on this morning was the requirement of stage for ...
Trevor Dancing in Cleveland
I came across a social media post that mentioned Trevor dancing in Cleveland a few weekends ago. A couple messages later and we had scheduled a session in downtown. With a new dancer, I also took a new direction and walked west for a change from Public Square. It was a great night and the photos are really solid.
There have been a lot of city sessions lately so how about some beach dancing? Jessica is a dance major getting ready to finish up her academic career and move into the entertainment industry. I'm sure she'll be very successful! For this session we met at Mentor Headlands State Park. Lake Erie was a little too rough to get in b ...
Ballerina in Cleveland
This is what you get when you put a ballerina in Cleveland! Leah is an amazing dancer and is only 13 years old! I can't wait to see what she does with her art as she grows.
Taylor Dances in Cleveland
Taylor dances in Cleveland in this post of images. She is another of the fantastic instructors at Dance Studio M. As usual for me, it was a just a walk through the city and picking out the spots that looked interesting in the moment. Made a lot of great images!
Jen is another instructor that I worked with to create some great dance photography. We got together in downtown Cleveland and walked a few blocks. Ducking into some interesting alleys and side streets to make some great ph otos!
High School Senior
Matt is a high school senior at St Ignatius in Cleveland. I met up with him on campus and we took a walk around the school and over onto W. 25th street to get some great photos.
Dance in Cleveland
Michelle is the owner and one of the instructors at Dance Studio M in Solon and I met with her and a few others from her studio to dance in Cleveland a few weeks ago. I never have much of a plan for these sessions. It's a bit of seeing how people dance then playing off the landscape around us - the buildings, alleys - and blendin ...
Ballet Photography in Cleveland
If there is one thing I want to do as much of as possible, it would be ballet photography in Cleveland. Taking talented dancers into the city and making wonderful images with them like I did a few weeks ago with Abby.
I met Abby when she danced the Nutcracker with the Cleveland Ballet Company. After a taking her picture in cos ...
Katlyn and Brian’s Cleveland Wedding
Katlyn and Brian's Cleveland Wedding took place on a beautiful fall day this September. The ladies and gentlemen both spent the morning getting ready at the Arcade in downtown Cleveland before heading to Tremont for the ceremony. A few stops around Cleveland for some fun pictures the followed the wedding vows and then the group r ...
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 ...
