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!

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!

Pregnancy Photography Session

Fall is officially here! And now that it is starting to look and feel like it, what is more gorgeous than fall? Pregnancy. Growing a tiny human is pretty amazing. And just to add to the beauty is this couple, beautiful on the inside and out. I cannot wait to meet this sweet little one in a few more weeks!

Now, before we continue on, I just want to touch on the importance of documenting your pregnancy. I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but you guys, it is so important! Don’t be a dummy like me and not get these photos done. It’s a major regret of mine. I don’t care if you feel like a beached whale. Just do it! This is the session that will only feel more special as time goes on. Trust me. (And for the record, you are not a whale despite how you feel). Okay, enough of my rant, onward. 😉

Aside from snuggling babies, another major perk of my job is the families I met. I LOVED meeting this sweet couple. They were so amazing to work with for their pregnancy session and I am quite positive they will be equally awesome parents. This little one won the parent jackpot.

Fall is such a gorgeous time of year of year to be outdoors for a pregnancy session! But what if you are due in the winter or spring when the weather isn’t so picture perfect? Y’all know that if you live in Northeast Ohio, winter is coming.

Studio sessions are equally as fun and timeless way to document your pregnancy. Sure, you might not have the gorgeous fall landscape as your backdrop, but the simplicity and elegance that the studio sessions brings is just as great.

Scheduling your studio pregnancy session is as easy as pie. Simply visit the booking site and select a date and time that works for your schedule. How easy is that?

Baby L’s Fall First Birthday

Welcome Baby L’s fall first birthday session to the blog! My goodness, it seems like just yesterday I was meeting her momma for maternity photos. Her first year flew by! I was so honored to document her first year! She is such a sweetheart and a happy girl!

For her newborn photos we used pumpkins so it seems fitting that we use pumpkins for her fall first birthday photos! My goodness, just looking at her newborn photos gives me all the feels! I get so sad when the first year is over!

Momma brought her Cinderella costume to the fall first birthday session. Is there anything more adorable that a baby in her first Halloween costume? I think not! Halloween is going to be so much fun for her!

I will admit that this may be one of my favorite cake smashes to date. It’s girly and fall all in one. Pink pumpkins? Yes please! Of course we have the most adorable baby as well! The light was divine that evening as a cold front blew in. No worries, she was nice and warm. 🙂 Fall first birthday sessions can be tricky with the weather but we certainly lucked out that night! Happy first birthday, baby girl. You are a joy!

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog! If you are interested in a cake smash session for a fall first birthday session, read on.

Did you know that all outfits are provided for your baby’s photo session? It’s true! Some of my favorite outfits provided are from Cora and Violet and Baby Bliss Props. All we need is your baby!

Is your little one celebrating a first birthday soon? I would love to help you celebrate! All cake smash sessions include a custom set and cake, done to your theme and color preferences. Please contact me today for more information.

Why you need to get in the photos. Yes, you, momma!

So often we as moms are the ones taking the photos rather than being in them. It’s usually because we take on the roll of documenting every moment of our children’s life with enthusiasm. But perhaps more importantly because we are most comfortable with being behind the lens rather than in front of the lens. I fall into both of those categories!

Women often struggle with body image, which only becomes amplified after having children. After all, our body only undergoes what feels like a million changes during and after pregnancy. There is no doubt that the end result of a human life is the most beautiful creation and that it is all worth it in the end! But what I have experienced myself and witness almost every day, is that the end result is a women feeling rather uncomfortable with these changes.

Okay, so you are probably thinking right now, YES! This is exactly why I don’t want to be photographed. Especially right after having a baby! I’m exhausted. I still look 5 months pregnant. I have acne. And who has time for makeup?

Fast forward a few months, even years later. Those feelings last, momma! So does that baby weight! And the exhaustion! I get it!

Let’s not even talk about how awkward it is to have that huge camera and lens pointed your way. Go ahead, try to act completely natural. I dare you. (insert sarcasm here, it’s totally awkward)

So why on earth do you get in front of that camera anyway? Why hand your husband your phone to take a picture? Let’s face it, if he’s anything like mine (I love him unconditionally, don’t get me wrong), he’s not exactly taking a bunch of photos.

Let me ask you this, when you look at a photos of your own parents, do you think, boy, mom really should have lost that weight? Do you think she looks so tired?

Absolutely not.

In fact, I’m going to guess you love and cherish those few photos they are in. You remember your childhood with them and fond moments.

Guess what?

So will your children!

It’s true!

So, if you do not get in front of the camera for yourself, do it for them. These photos are what they will hold onto long after you are gone. This is what they cherish for years to come. I promise you, your kids will love these photos when they are grown.

These photos were taken by my dear friend and talented photographer, Lauren of Little Bear Photography. ❤️
