Welcome Baby M!

Welcome Baby M to Cleveland newborn photography blog! My goodness, this tiny lady stole our hearts BIG time! Coming in at a whopping five pounds at birth with a head full of hair and the best lashes, she was a dainty dream.

This sweet girl’s newborn session was just under two hours at the studio. She was perfectly happy to sleep away while my assistant Megan and I posed her. I frequently get asked about how we achieve these poses. Quite honestly, it is a combination of a lot of things. A very warm studio, a well fed baby, and slow and gentle movements. Most of the time, they hardly notice that anything happened!

For your Cleveland newborn photography session, I always take into consideration your color preferences, desired props, and how your home is decorated. Baby M’s momma requested neutrals, pinks, and turquoise. She also brought with her the wedding veil and matching outfit. We are always happy to incorporate special items into your newborn session!

This bunny is always a client favorite. There is a teddy bear, lamb, heart and football for the boys as well. These stuffed loves always add a sweet touch to newborn photos. And of course, most the headbands in Baby M’s Cleveland newborn session are from Baby Bliss Props, my favorite!

Thank you so much for stopping by the Cleveland newborn photography blog! If you loved what you saw today, please consider checking out the newborn photography portfolio. If you are expecting a little one and would be interested in scheduling a session, you can contact me here. There are a few spots left in the February schedule.

Newborn sessions are typically done between six and fourteen days old. After that, babies are typically more alert, which is not a problem but your expectations would be adjusted in terms of the variety of photos.

Baby Sessions

Holy moly, it feels like forever since I have updated the blog. Pardon the silence! October, November, and December has been a flurry of baby sessions. So. Busy. We had fall family sessions, holiday sessions, Santa in the studio for a couple of weekends on top of regular sessions. No complaints here though! Over the winter months I will try to share some of the sessions that I’ve missed. Too much baby goodness to waste!

And since this will be my last post of 2019, I wanted to say thank you. This year has been one of the best years yet. I am so humbled by your support. I would not be where I am today without you. From booking sessions to just reading these blog posts, thank you from the bottom of my heart. It means more to me than you will ever know.

Now without further ado, please welcome Baby A to the blog! The sweet girl came to the studio at 12 days old and stole our hearts in a big way. So stinking sweet!

Often, I get a lot of questions about how I get these newborn photos and if the little ones are cooperative. 90% of the time, babies sleep through the sessions happily. We do some prep work before the session to set them up for a nice sleepy time.

Of course, babies are humans, so sometimes they have gas, reflux, or something that just isn’t quite making them feel like themselves. What you need to understand that you baby is the boss of the session, and what they like and makes them feel comfortable is what we go with. Their safety and comfort is our top priority.

We can take beautiful photos of you baby however they feel most comfortable. Please let go of the expectation that you little one will have an exact pose and focus on documenting this moment in time, as they are.

10 years from now, what will matter to you is having lovely photos of your little one to help you remember what they looked like when the world was new. Not anything else. I promise that these photos will only hold more value to you over time.

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog! If you would like to schedule a 2020 session, you can do so here. Interested in seeing the newborn portfolio? Here’s the link.

Cheers to 2020, may your new year be full of health and happiness!

Baby N’s Studio Newborn Session

Welcome Baby N to the newborn photographer blog! My goodness, this little love was so sweet! I loved my snuggles with her- she defiantly gave my assistant Megan and I baby fever! So stinking sweet!

Baby N came to the Medina Ohio photographer studio at 8 days old for her newborn session. This age gives us a great opportunity for sleepy baby photos! She happily snoozed away her entire session. Not a peep or a fuss from her. Your little one’s comfort and safety is our top priority!

Baby N’s momma choose soft pinks, green, and whites for her newborn session. I love the soft girly look!

How fun is the new moon prop from Woodsy Wonders Props? Baby N was the first little one to use it, I would say she modeled it perfectly! This new moon is the perfect size for little ones. ❤️

I super love a good family photo but this family was extra special. Mom and Dad were simply the nicest people. Baby N, you are so loved. And you won the parent lottery for sure!

How sweet is the photo of mom and dad holding baby’s hands? It really shows how tiny they are in those first weeks. Baby’s change so quickly! That first year is such a miraculous time.

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog! Are you looking for a Medina Ohio photographer or a northeast Ohio newborn photographer? Please check out the portfolio. If you like what you see, I would LOVE to hear from you!

Studio availability is currently booking about two months out. If you are interested in scheduling a session, please do not wait! Occasionally last minute spots are available but not often. If you have questions about scheduling, how to secure your spot, or investment, please contact me today.

Pregnancy Photography Session

Welcome B’s pregnancy photography session to the blog! My goodness, this expecting momma is gorgeous! Her session was so much fun, I love the simplicity of studio sessions. So clean and timeless. I cannot wait to meet this little guy in a few months!

B has a modern style and brought this black turtleneck for one of her outfits. I love the simplicity of this! I hope it fits perfectly on her walls.

Did you know that everything you need is provided for your pregnancy photography session? It’s true! All you need to do is complete a questionnaire for your preferences, I take care of the rest! Gowns and undergarments all are provided.

I know most people prefer outdoors for maternity sessions, but honestly, I think the studio is a pretty awesome option. Not only are you comfortable (no on lookers at the park), you have a place to change, all the gowns are there for you to go through, and most importantly, you are warm! You still get a good variety in studio- I love how clean the resulting images are! The focus of the session is right where it should be- on your growing miracle.

The best time for a pregnancy photography session is between 30-35 weeks. At this time, you are are still comfortable but showing. B was 30 weeks and my goodness, look at how adorable that bump is! If you go outside this range, it is no problem at all, it is simply suggested.

I’m so glad that mommas are documenting this special time in their lives. There is no excitement compared to the time in waiting for your first baby’s arrival! I did not have maternity photos done and really wish that I have something to remember this special time with. So don’t be regretful like me, get maternity photos done!

Interested in seeing more studio portraits like this? Please check out similar sessions on the blog! If you love what you see, I’d love to hear from you!

Fruit Bath Session

Lately I have had a few requests for fruit bath sessions and I have to admit, they are my new favorite! Fruit baths are a fun change up for your baby’s milestone session. Not only are they adorable, but they keep your little one entertained. I mean what baby doesn’t love a good splash in the tub with a little food playtime??

Little Miss K’s momma requested a lemon fruit bath. She had never tasted a lemon before and although she actually does not care for fruits, no sour faces here! Lemons must be her new favorite!

Also, word to the wise, don’t make your lemon bath with milk. In my moment of genius, I thought milk would be pretty and help cover pieces and parts. Which it did. And then it turned into a curdled buttermilk bath. Whoops! I totally knew that as I make buttermilk for my kiddo’s pancakes every week. Apparently I did not apply my cooking knowledge here. HA! Oh well! It was still cute. 😉

Here is what you need to consider for your kiddo’s fruit bath. Can they sit unsupported? Do they have any allergies? What colors do you want to use? If you love yellow like me, lemons are perfect. Seasonal fruit baths are also fun! Strawberries in June, apples in the fall, watermelon in the summer. You get the point! You can also opt for a flower milk bath as well!

If you are interested in scheduling a fruit bath or flower milk bath for your little one’s session, you can do so here. You can also check out another fruit bath session in this blog post.

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog! If you LOVE what you see, feel free to share, pin, or contact me to inquire. I’m happy to chat with you!
