Katie’s Summer Maternity Session

Katie’s Summer Maternity Session

Maternity Photography Northeast Ohio

Ah, sweet summertime! While the days are longer, they somehow fly by so much faster than winter.  Funny how that works, isn’t it?  Summer is the perfect time for maternity photography northeast Ohio!  The gorgeous sunsets and warm (okay, sometimes it’s just downright smoking hot!) evenings make for the perfect outdoor sessions.  Sweet Katie’s session was no exception.

Katie and her husband were so sweet, I love getting to know couples before they have their little one.  Despite rescheduling due to rain, we ended up have a beautiful evening for their session!  Katie requested Hubbard Valley Park, one of my favorite locations!  She loved the bridge, woods, and creek- all the reasons I love going there as well!

We also took advantage of the sunset over the lake that night, how glowing is Katie in this gown by Sew Trendy Accessories? Ah, that little guy in there is one lucky little man.  His momma is amazing!

This bridge and creek are my most requested location and for good reason.  It is always so gorgeous down there.  Most of my clients love the rustic, outdoors feel, and I agree! This is a favorite spot for maternity portraits!

Did you know that for your pregnancy photos a variety of gowns are available for your use?  It’s true!  No need to worry about outfits!  How easy is that?

Oh, how I cannot wait to meet this little one soon!  He is so loved already!

Thank you so much for stopping by the Northeast Ohio maternity photography blog!  Are you expecting and considering maternity portraits? Please check out the portfolio and similar posts on the blog.  Fall is quickly approaching and is the perfect time of year for outdoor photos!  Since autumn is our busiest time, I recommend scheduling your photos a few months in advance.

Norah’s Newborn Session

Welcome Baby Norah to the Wadsworth Ohio newborn photography blog!

My goodness, this little lady is simply divine!  She was so sweet and so laid back for her newborn session, Norah just snoozed the time away.  We were done with her three hour session in just an hour and a half! Easy peasy!

Most of you know, from reading the blog, how much I love neutrals and this bum up pose.  I love the simplicity and how it shows off all those sweet little features that you never want to forget!  Oh, those little back rolls are just delicious!

Being a summertime baby, flowers are a must!  And what better flower than sunflowers for summer?  I love the color yellow and think that it’s so undervalued.  (Hint hint, pick yellow on your questionnaire friends!) Babies love the potato sack pose too.  They are so comfortable being wrapped up and snuggly! This sweet bow is from Hello Miss Gorgeous.

It is all about those angles, y’all!  Baby rolls and profiles?  Yes, please!

I find myself doing this pose with parents almost every session.  I love how the light brings out all the little details and yet it is so simple.  Silhouettes in studio sessions are always a go to!

Our Anniversary Session With Kate Mannella Photography

Hey there friends!  Today I am sharing not my work, but our photos from our very own anniversary session!

I have to admit this summer has been super busy and the blog has fell quiet.  Instead of blogging, we have been having quality family time and enjoying the slower (or what should be the slower) days of summer.  We have traveled to amazing places, done a ton of swimming, gone for hikes, biked, and yes, even read.  These are the days I feel like savoring.  School will be starting in just two weeks (yikes!) and for the first time, everyone will be off.  Cue the momma tears.

I have, however, been still doing sessions.  Those sessions will be posted shortly!

Today is a personal blog post, unlike most of the others shared on here.  These photos are from the amazing Kate Mannella Photography.   While I have to admit, I am MUCH more comfortable on the other side of the camera, Kate and her husband Niko did an amazing job.

Trevor and I have been married for almost eleven years this fall.  I have a slight obsession with wedding photography (although I will never do it. Never.) and when Kate offered up an anniversary session I had to jump on it!

I love Kate’s natural, airy style as much as I love this guy.  We don’t have nearly enough photos of us together, like most parents.  Our walls are filled with photos of our children but none of us.  As must as I love having photos of our kids, we owe it to ourselves to have images like these.  After all, this guy is just as important as they are to me!

We choose to do this session in our yard, while it’s not a traditional choice, we love the sentimental spot.  We are homebodies and love being home.  On top of that, we built our home ourselves, on the farm that I grew up.  These are some of my all time favorite photos and I cannot wait to hang these in our bedroom.

Happy First Birthday!

Sunflower Cake Smash

By Mary Christine Photography

Happy first birthday to this little sweetie!  What better way to celebrate a birthday than with a sunflower cake smash? It is the perfect theme for a baby girl’s summer birthday!

This gorgeous little lady’s momma wanted a colorful and unique session.  She requested yellow and a tent for her cake set.  If you know me at all, my first thought was to go with flowers!

I love how twelve month old are all about the clapping and waving!  This sweet girl did not disappoint with the gestures.  So adorable! This outfit and wooden bench is from Baby Bliss Props, my favorite! 

Oh the sweetness!  Babies change and grow so quickly!  I love capturing the little details and personalities because in a blink of an eye it changes!  We often forget too quickly what they were doing when and these helps us remember.

I mean, just look at those rolls on the bottom right.  Baby rolls never get old!  Never!!

If you are happy and you know it clap your hands. 😉 Who is ready for a sunflower cake smash??

How gorgeous is this cake from A Cupcake A Day in Medina, Ohio?  The sunflowers are absolutely perfection! Shawna is my go to girl for all things cake!

There’s nothing more traditional and timeless than balloons for a birthday.  Her momma wanted this for her first birthday invitations and I love how it turned out.  Definitely my favorite!

Brylynn’s Outdoor Newborn Session

Brylynn’s Outdoor Newborn Photography Session

The first days of summer are finally here!  With the temperatures rising comes the opportunity for outdoor newborn photography sessions!  To keep these sessions safe and simple, this year my husband and I built a little garden outside the studio in the shade.  The days of shooting in the evening and worrying about bugs and harsh sun are over! Not to mention, who does not love a baby in flowers?  I know I definitely do!

Miss Brylynn was my first little one to use the outside garden.  She was an absolute dream for her newborn photography session at fourteen days old!  I just love how these outdoor shots turned out.  They are simple but beautiful! All my husband’s hard work with the construction of this defiantly paid off!

This bonnet from Wild Blossom Props tied in perfectly with the flower colors. Sweet, simple, and gorgeous all day,  every day. Add it a few different props and angles and this little lady had one beautiful gallery!

Brylynn’s momma requested pink, cream, and florals.  I think we accomplished all three for her newborn photography session!  I promise not to put your boys in flowers!
