Rainbow Cake Smash | Medina Ohio Photographer

Welcome this gorgeous girl’s rainbow cake smash to the Medina Ohio photographer blog today! Oh my heavens, this little sweetie was such a ray of sunshine for her first birthday session! SO many smiles! Like, do we even have one where she isn’t smiling??

We always do a few non birthday sets during a cake smash session. Little Miss was all smiles for me! It is so nice to see, especially since stranger danger is a real thing around the first birthday. My goodness, I could just gobble her up! So sweet!

Momma requested a pastel rainbow cake smash for her first birthday. Oh how fun is this theme? Pastel colors make my heart so happy! As do whimsical sets like this.

Baby girl sure did come to shine! I could have photographed her all day! She was so happy to play with her cake. 💕

How beautiful is this cake from Honey Bee Bakery in Medina? They do a beautiful job decorating cakes!

What better way to clean up from some cake than a bath? Oh those baby rolls don’t last nearly long enough! Isn’t she divine??

Baby Boy Newborn Photos | Akron Photographer

Welcome these sweet baby boy newborn newborn photos to the Akron photographer blog! My goodness, this handsome man stole our hearts in a BIG way!

I had so much fun getting know his mom and dad at their maternity session. Not only are they absolutely gorgeous, but so sweet and adorable together. Seriously, meeting families like this make my heart so happy. It truly is the best part of what we *get* to do.

This little guy came in at six pounds and was oh so sleepy for his photo debut. We kept the colors neutral and simple. Sessions like these are gorgeous and timeless. Always a favorite for me!

Simple bean bag poses like these always bring the attention right where we want it to be! Baby boy newborn newborn photos are all about remembering those tiny details that change so quickly. The newborn stage is fleeting, we want you to be able to savor it long after they have grown.

Baby toes are a must have for every baby boy newborn photos. Ten tiny toes bring a whole lot of love to this family.

Family photos are such an important part of every newborn session. That new parent feeling is just as beautiful as it is overwhelming. At a time when almost everything seems like a blur, it is great to pause for a little celebration of this next stage of life. This sweet couple is going to make the best of parents, I’m so excited to watch their family grow.

A New Experience

I wanted to make an update here on the blog as to the new experience we are rolling out here at the studio! This change is aimed at serving you better, from start to finish.

A little back story as to why the change. A few months back, one of my dearest families came back in for their daughter’s first birthday session. The dad confessed to me that he was so in love with the photos from their first session with me but they had yet to print them and hang them in the home. The mom agreed and said that she was stuck on what would look best in the home.

This struck a cord with me that I had really dropped the ball with giving clients a finished product. What a waste of their resources! They went through all that time, energy, and money to have beautiful photos taken only for those photos to collect dust on a hard drive. See, they weren’t getting the joy of looking at their newborn daughter on their walls. Or giving their daughter the opportunity to flip through the pages of an album in wonder. It made me realize how I was actually failing them at giving them that experience.

Well, this might have been an isolated incident because after all, prints are available in your online gallery and I really thought I was giving you the best service by delivering a gallery of digital images. However, the next session was a client who has been coming in for years. She also confessed that she hasn’t done anything with the digital images and now feels overwhelmed at the thought of how to display them in her home or make albums of them. Even my own sister, who I did her son’s first year, has yet to do anything with her files. Yikes!

I hate to think that the work we are doing here is going to end up in the digital wasteland. After all, the purpose of photography is to preserve a moment. A digital files is about as good as a bitcoin. It’s worth something only if you know what to do with it. How to properly print it and display it. Imagine spending hundreds of dollars on something, only to have the end result not be an actual quality, physical product.

Time for change! Why? No one is going to find these digital files on your computer or hard drive that is obsolete in 5, 10, 20 years. When your grand children are going through your belongings someday, they won’t know how to access your cloud. I hope they have the same joy in discovering an album of their grandmother from childhood that we had when we found my own grandmother’s album. These heirlooms and the legacy you leave behind. Let the quality match the digital file that you seek.

Moving forward, you will not be just getting an email with a link to your gallery. We will finish this process together.

After your session, you will have another appointment with me where you can view your gallery of images. We will talk about the options of what you want to do with them- album? wall art? both? Think of it as shopping with your best friend who has the best possible style. (Okay, I’m not actually that stylish but I sure do know what to do with your photos!) I’m here to help you!

There is nothing more emotionally satisfying than seeing your gorgeous family hanging on the wall. It’s what takes a house and transforms it into your home. Let’s take the time to finish this process correctly. You deserve a professional product adoring the walls of your home with the people you love most.

Airplane Cake Smash | Akron Cake Smash Photographer

Welcome my adorable nephew’s airplane cake smash to the Akron Cake Smash photographer blog! Today is his first birthday and what better way to celebrate than with cake? Seriously, you guys, I cannot believe he is one already! Time really does fly! It seems like just yesterday we were waiting to find out if he was a boy or a girl.

I love looking back at his newborn photos. He was the first baby I photographed post lockdown and my goodness, was he a welcome little ray of sunshine. My girls are obsessed with him! And why wouldn’t they be? He’s their very own, real life baby doll.

When we were discussing his first birthday theme, my husband suggested an airplane cake smash. Since his dad is a pilot, it is not only made sense, but is super adorable as well. Maybe I should keep that husband of mine with his good ideas. 😉

How adorable is this airplane smash cake by Honey Bee Bakery? They do such a fabulous job decorating cakes and they are just as tasty as they are adorable!

Studio Pregnancy Session | Cleveland Maternity Photographer

Holy moly, welcome this stunning momma’s studio pregnancy session to the Cleveland maternity photographer blog today! I had SO much fun meeting and photographing this sweet couple! It’s always an honor to photograph pregnancy but this momma is also a photographer. Talk about a huge compliment to be trusting with such a special time in their lives!

Isn’t she gorgeous? She was also up for anything and loves the glam studio look. Yessssss, I’m all in! I do believe she looks stunning in black for a slightly modern look.

Silhouettes are a must for every studio pregnancy session. That gorgeous outline of your baby bump is something that you will love for years to come.

Okay, I have to admit, I am a sucker for tulle. These gowns from Lemon and Pearl Design have given me all the heart eyes! Momma rocked them so well! Did you know that all gowns are provided for your maternity session? It’s true! All you need to do is show up for your session and play dress up- who doesn’t love that?

Well, golly, this session is making me kick myself for not having maternity photos. I know most women are hesitant but in a few years, these photos will be so special to have. Even my own kids have asked to see my pregnancy photos and I have nothing to share with them. Don’t have regrets like me!
