On Location Family Photographer

Time & time again one of my favorite parts of my business are the people I meet.  I get to work with some wonderful people and many become life friends.  Julie is one of these.  If you follow the blog, you may remember Julie and her family from last year.  I was thrilled when she called again to set up another session.  And, not surprisingly, just like last year the photos were gorgeous.

Check out the adorableness.


Extended Family Sessions

I have had the pleasure of photographing several families lately…large families.  I wanted to share them with you and give you some tips as well if you are considering a family session of your own.

Coordinating a large family session can be a lot of work, but it doesn’t have to be.  Clothing choices can be made fairly simple by giving everyone a color scheme and encouraging them to coordinate without necessarily matching.  The other challenge is often the number of children involved.  It can be hard to get all of them smiling and looking at the same time.  I always work fast to try to keep boredom to a minimum.  Here are some of the recent “posed” family portraits I’ve captured.


Then, we break into smaller groups and capture siblings, all the boys, or other smaller family groups.  These can all hang together in a wall gallery and look amazing.


And, then I always try to capture some fun photos as well.  Here are a couple from the last few sessions.


I love to work with each family to design galleries or arrangements that can be hung in the home and cherished forever.


Jeff & Kelly’s Adorable Maternity Photographs in Cuyahoga Valley

I couldn’t have been more excited when Kelli contacted me to share that she was expecting and wanted me to photograph her maternity session.  Kelli and I went to high school together and have run into each other from time to time but it was so great to catch up and meet her husband and their little man to be.

Kelli has always been filled with enthusiasm and I was so glad to see that hasn’t changed.  I just know she and Jeff are going to be amazing parents to this little guy.  Jeff & Kelli, I wish you both so many blessings on your new family.  I can’t wait to meet him.


Beautiful Family Photography Session

I met Julie when she took the photography class I offer a few times a year.  I was thrilled when she called and asked me to photograph her family at their beautiful home.  Could this family be any more beautiful?
