I seriously LOVE my job!! I mean, who doesn't love a new baby? This handsome stud already knows what he wants and he wasn't afraid to share his opinions with me from the start. I love a challenge and he had me on my toes with every turn. What a thrilling time I had designing his one of a kind session with help from his mother Kristi. We worked together to create the session of our dreams. It will be a pleasure to watch this sweet boy grow over the next number of years. To Kristi and Hal, what a darling family you have and thank you for trusting in me, to deliver such precious moments!
This past weekend, I had the pleasure of photographing my very first wedding ALONE! I have been a second shooter for a Cleveland wedding Photographer for some time but I hadn't been given the chance to do my own thing until now. I will be honest, in no means I am ready to tackle the average large wedding. When my friend contacted me early this spring and offered me the chance to capture her intimate backyard wedding, I jumped at the opportunity! I generally accept any opportunity that comes my way especially when I am confident I can deliver a quality product and gain valuable experience while doing so. What a treat it was to be the head photographer and to photograph the shots I have been pondering for months. Their wedding had the most perfect backdrop. Set on a beautiful rural landscape with gorgeous mature trees and an endless field of corn! My mind went wild with ideas as soon as I arrived. Thank you Nicole and Marcos for giving me this wonderful honor and I hope you love your photos as much as I do! Now, back to editing :)
It had been quite some time since I've had a newborn BOY session. Most of this past year has been all about girls. That being said, I was very excited for this session! When his mom contacted me earlier this summer, she told me about all the fun crochet items she had for me to use. Being creative and designing sets is definitely one of my strong points. I love the challenge and I got to work right away personalizing his one of a kind photographs. I am very lucky to have a Dad that collects antiques. I often go "shopping" at my parents home and their many barns for fun props. I also have a very talented husband who is able to build me whatever I dream up!
This little man was very cooperative and posed well for the majority of our time together. He did although, have a very big opinion of the "baby on the shelf" segment and gave me a run for my money. It was a valuable learning experience to work with an uncooperative baby and it taught me what I need to do the next time I plan that style of pose. Below are a couple of my favorite photographs from his session!
Happy Birthday (soon) to one of New Arrivals star models! What a pleasure it has been watching you grow up this past year. I really cherish all the families that let me snuggle their babies and get to know them over the years. I can hardly believe that I met you just a year ago and what this year has brought me! A fantastic friendship, one of a kind photo sessions to create the masterpieces of my dreams and priceless practice and experience with a kiddo who decides the pace of our session! You never know when someone will come into your life and change you forever. This little girl has done just that! The happy tears that have been shed for my own growth and accomplishments are many. I am forever grateful for the day she arrived in my studio, which at the time was our dining room while my real studio was under construction. I very much look forward to making more memories with her and I cannot imagine what other exciting adventures she will bring my way!
