Jamie and Dan’s Downtown Medina Maternity Session

Oh my goodness, y’all!  Something different just in time for fall!  (I totally rhymed there, whoops!)

One of my favorite parts of being a photographer is meeting new people and creating sessions and photographs to capture them and their story.  Jamie and Dan are the sweetest, most adorable couple and I am so honored to be able to document this special time in their lives while they wait for their son’s arrival.

Jamie said on her questionnaire that she is not a flower child and the more earthy maternity photos isn’t really her style.  She loves a more modern look and wanted a casual, more urban setting for their couple maternity photos.  Sign me up!  I love a good change of scenery, and what better location that my hometown and theirs, than Medina, Ohio!

Our quaint square has plenty of awesome locations!  It isn’t my usual spot, as I don’t get many requests for it, but it was just so much fun.  The bricks, the ivory, even the scarecrows that the local business have put out for fall just give the whole session a fun, nostalgic feel. Our little town has the quintessential midwestern feel, and the people here make it feel like home.

I loved getting to know Jamie and Dan during our time together.  They are so easy going- I’m positive they will be amazing parents and I cannot wait to meet this guy in a few more weeks.  Watching families and babies grow is such an amazing experience, no matter how many times I witness it, it really is an amazing thing!

Even though we did almost all couple maternity photos, a good up close belly bump is always a must for maternity sessions.  My girls love seeing what they looked like inside my belly and I am sure this little guy will too!

Lily and Sienna’s Floral Farm Themed Cake Smash

Did someone say farm and florals for a cake smash session?  Sign me up! I had SO much fun creating this adorable set for these sweet twin girls!

Although the day of their cake smash session was hot (like, smoking hot), Lily and Sienna were still happy.  What little troopers!

I LOVE a good floral crown and this one from Cora Violet suited the bill for the theme of this session. Oh those little grins are just so precious!

Since we went with all neutrals for their six month session, we added some color for their cake smash session. I love monochromotic color schemes, especially with soft colors! The added pop of soft colors just adds a little whimsical touch.

I know Photoshop gets a bad rap sometimes, but it can come in super handy when you have two super active toddlers and a big sister!  When you can’t get everyone to look at the same time, sometimes you just have to use a little magic to make it happen.  Which let’s be honest, is SO much better than trying for an hour and torturing everyone involved.  Can I get an Amen??

The inspiration for this cake smash session set came from walking down farm house aisle at Hobby Lobby, which if you know my love for everything farm house, it was my dream come true! This slightly rustic, floral set is busier than my usual cake smash set, but I love it so! Add in two adorable little girls, cakes from A Cupcake A Day- I don’t think it gets much better than that!

Happy first birthday!

Oh Brady!  Happy first birthday, little man! How I have loved watching you grow over this last year!  I’ve loved getting to know his momma, daddy, and his sweet little personality.  It’s crazy to think that it’s been over a year since we first met for their maternity session!

And to finish this year off in style, with one of my favorite cake smashes to date.  What do y0u get when you combine a gorgeous sunset, an adorable baby, and a few white decorations?  First birthday magic, my friends. So if you are in need of some serious cuteness today, keep scrolling down.  It only gets better from here!

We went to a new location for Brady’s first birthday session.  Safe to say it’s now my favorite.  I discovered this park when I was out with my sister for an early morning bike ride.  The sun was rising over Chippewa Lake here and it was just stunning.  In fact, I made her turn around and ride into the parking lot with me so I could scope it out.  When I returned in the evening, I found the sunsets here are just as gorgeous.  So it turns out my triathlon hobby helps my professional side as well!

I love how his little rolls are peeking out of this onesie from Baby Bliss Props. Oh how quickly those go away!  I sound like a broken record, but I will say it again, it’s all about those details!

These family photos just melt my heart.  I know that their family will grow and change over the years, but this first birthday is so special.  The mommy and me photos get me every time.  Love, love, love!

Welcome Baby Zane!

Medina Ohio Photographer | Baby Zane’s Session

Oh my goodness, y’all!  Baby Zane stole my heart this week! Not only was he so handsome, but so incredibly sweet!  I could have snuggled him all day long!  His parents wanted him back, so I guess that was not an option.

I am so thankful for each and every one of my clients trusting me with their newborn babies.  I really do have the best job in the world, being surrounded by these miracles everyday and creating artwork for families to cherish long after they have grown.  I know that my own girls’ newborn photos are one of my favorite keepsakes.  All those little tiny detail are so incredible to look back on now that they are older.  I know someday I will feel the same way about their photos from today.

Zane was the first little one to try out my new baby bear outfit from Ada Photo Props.  *Insert squeal!!* Not only did he rock it, but it could have gobbled him up!  How adorable is this?? Love me some baby bear!

This pose is quickly becoming my most requested newborn family pose! I. LOVE. IT.  It’s so simple and brings out all those sweet little details.  Just check out that yawn and those toes.  My heart is melting! I do believe we need to name this pose, what do ya think??

Medina Ohio

Monochromatic sets are my absolute favorites!  Colors are great but I love using them in a way that draws the attention right to the baby. How sweet is his little face?? So smoochable!  I know that’s not even a word, but it should be.  Add it to the dictionary please!

A lesson learned 10 years later.

Pregnancy is SUCH and exciting time!

The anticipation of meeting your little one is unlike anything else!

I remember rubbing my belly and wondering what this little miracle growing inside of me would be like.  Would the little nugget be a boy or girl? Blue eyes or hazel?  Maybe she would get my husband’s dark lashes and my red hair.

Hopefully she would get his athleticism and my creativity.   I hope she is kind and thoughtful. Patient and understanding.

It’s endless! I could go on all day!

Then, there’s that never ending to do list.

Decorate the nursery.

Take a breastfeeding and birthing class.

Register for baby gear. Buy Buy Baby here we come!

Figure out what kind of bottle to get in an endless aisle of options.

Choose a stroller.  Car seats.  This is when you really need that forbidden glass of wine!

Find something to wear that is stretchy, comfortable, and hopefully cute to your baby shower.

Are maternity photos on your to due list?

Maybe.  Maybe not.  It depends on how much weight you gain and how swollen you get….

Let’s fast forward 10 years from now.

When your little one is 9 years old.  Yikes!

How will you remember this time in waiting?

If you are anything like me, you might have a few bad photos that your husband took with his crummy camera and photography skills.

They aren’t photos that you love.  In fact, they are blurry and downright terrible.

It doesn’t have to be like this though.  Learn from my mistakes!

Why?

My girls LOVE seeing what they looked like inside my belly.  It’s the beginning of their story, how they came to life.  I only have a few crummy photos to show them.  I wish I had better ones. More of them.

It doesn’t matter to them how big I felt or how swollen I was.  They LOVE them!

My kids see their mom and dad, back when they were a little bit younger. They see themselves growing and how much they are loved.

How will your pregnancy be remembered?

I hope you remember how excited you were.

I hope your kids can see and feel that.

I hope you remember how much you loved your significant other.

I hope your kids still know that.

I hope Erin and Jeremy’s little one knows that when they look at their maternity photos. <3
