Newborn Pictures

Oh how I have missed taking newborn pictures! It feels SO good to be back in the studio snuggling these sweet babies!

Little Miss’s family came in last week for her newborn pictures and let me tell you, they are the sweetest! Not a peep from this gorgeous little lady and big brother was so amazing! Talk about a proud grin!

Momma requested pinks and purples for this little lady’s newborn pictures. Oh, and a few floral sets, my favorite!

This froggie pose is usually hit or miss depending on the little one. But this little lady was so sleepy for her newborn pictures that Megan suggested we give this one a try. And of course Megan was right, she nailed it! (This pose is a composite, meaning we took two photos and put them together in photoshop. Megan’s hands never left the baby!)

Talk about a proud grin! My goodness, these babies were so good to us for this session!

This new prop from Luneberry was the perfect for a floral set up! A little boho set up for a summer baby.

This bunny is a favorite for newborn pictures! Who doesn’t love a little something to cuddle?

All the baby angles for newborn pictures! I love how these angles show off those delicious baby rolls and that sweet profile! Such a sweet baby girl she is. ❤️

Baby Studio

Y’all, the baby studio is back up and running! That’s why it’s been quiet here on the blog. The month of May has been a big catch up month for us, mostly of sessions that were scheduled during the COVID shut down. Not to worry, there will be plenty of goodness on the blog soon. I am in the homestretch of catching up!

Today I am taking a break from editing to show off the newest member of our family! I cannot claim him as my own but oh, how this little nephew of mine has stolen our hearts. So handsome if I do say so myself! The best part? I can snuggle him anytime AND get some sleep. He’s just the sweetest!

Upon the birth of this little guy, my girls quickly discovered my ‘baby voice’. You know, how I talk to the babies? Well, my oldest was horrified to learn that I do indeed talk like that to all babies that come into the baby studio. She told me that “the parents must think I’m crazy”. Maybe? At least they know I love snuggling their babies!

Is there anything better than teddy bear snuggles? So sweet! That bear looks pretty big right now but when he comes back to the baby studio for his sitter session, the bear will look much smaller. Isn’t it amazing how quickly babies grow??

My sister competed in Ironman Lake Placid while she was expecting. Not too many people can check an Ironman off their to do list while in utero. I went and rounded up her gear to honor her awesome accomplishment.

Thank you so much for stopping by the baby studio blog! Are you expecting a little one soon and considering having newborn photos taken? Please be sure to check out the newborn section of the blog. Right now I am taking limited sessions through the summer and fall months in order to allow for proper spacing.

Spring Maternity Session

Oh my heavens, what a better way to get back to work than with a spring maternity session?! I was absolutely thrilled this week that we were able to get in this soon to be family of three’s session this past weekend.

The weather was perfect for a spring maternity session in Northeast Ohio. We also caught the blooming trees at the Cleveland Museum of Art at their peak. Isn’t spring time amazing? Here in Cleveland, spring is a big deal. That is, until it snows again. 😉

Of course we love the warmer temperatures, but another thing spring brings us is new life. And I cannot wait to meet this little guy in a few more weeks. He is one lucky little guy, his parents are pretty spectacular people. ❤️

I love this floral dress that momma wore for her spring maternity session. Dad’s shirt coordinates perfectly with her dress as well!

These stone stairs at the Cleveland Art Museum might be my new favorite spot. I love the simple, clean look!

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog to check out this spring maternity session! If you love what you see, please check out the maternity portfolio and more maternity sessions on the blog. If you are interested in scheduling a maternity session, please contact me to learn more. Pregnancy is such an amazing time to document!

Right now, we are planning on slowly opening the studio for sessions on May 12. The month of May will be used to catch up on the sessions that were missed due to COVID19, but the online scheduling site is open for June and beyond.

We will continue to take every precaution possible to keep you and your family safe. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

A few personal photos

Today I wanted to share with you a few personal photos of this crazy time in our lives. I know that not everyone has had the same experience as us. This is just a glimpse into our lives.

After a month and a half of staying at home, we are starting to adjust to this new and hopefully temporary way of life. Virtual hangouts, Google Meets, longer hair, and A LOT of together time is starting to feel more normal than not.

I’m not going to lie, a few months ago, it felt like life was in high gear and it felt like a break might not ever happen. Never in my wildest dreams did I think this was going to happen. After we settled down from the ‘I cannot believe this” and “how will this affect our livelihoods” (and many more thoughts and anxiety), we have settled into the thought that this is the gift of time.

Our kids are only little once, and we have been given the gift of something you can never get back. Sure, life will eventually go on after this. But our kids are only little once. There will be a time when we can make more money, work longer hours, be more productive, etc.

And as rosy as I just made this time sound, we have had our fair share of messiness, battles over school work, and boredom. I mean we all have our moments right?

Our dogs, however have been living their best life. Other than bath time, it is a great time to be a dog. They are going to be so sad when we get on with our normal routines.

This last one was a fun double exposure done in camera. While I miss my clients, especially the babies, it has been fun to document my family and focus on our personal photos.

If you are interested in some quick tips on how to take better photos of your family, you can get the guide here. This guide will walk you through five simple steps to taking better photographs of your kids today. You can use your iPhone or DSLR camera that has been collecting dust.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope that you and your family are staying healthy and safe.

Photography Studio Update

After five weeks, I thought it would be a good time to give a photography studio update. As of right now, it looks like we have the possibility of opening the studio again in May. I am cautiously optimistic with the idea of opening in May so I wanted to take the time to outline some things that will be the same as always, how it will work, and some things that will defiantly be different.

photography studio update

If things go as planned and May is are opening date, there will be no new sessions scheduled in the month of May.

It is going to take at least a month for our photography studio to catch up on back logged sessions. Another reason for this is that I want to make sure there is enough time in between studio sessions to sanitize everything. There will be no more than 1 session per day to help cut down on the number of people in the studio.

photography studio update

Speaking of sanitizing, this is one thing that will not be different than before!

We have always thoroughly cleaned the photography studio before and after sessions. Hard surfaces, including door handles, tables, etc. have always been wiped down with disinfectant and will continue to be that way. All blankets, wraps, and clothing is washed after use as well to ensure the healthiest environment for your little ones. We have always been sensitive to germs!

A new addition to sessions will be masks.

This one goes without saying. Megan (the photography studio assistant) and I will be wearing masks to help protect you and your family. We have always worn gloves, that will not change. As of right now, you won’t need to wear one into the studio unless it is mandated.

For right now, only immediate family members will be allowed in the studio for the session.

Trust me, I know how exciting it is to watch a grandchild’s newborn session. And I know how special generational photos are. I hope that we can change this policy in the future but for right now, the fewer people that come into the photography studio, the better.

photography studio update

Photography studio sessions in the upcoming months are available on the booking website.

While you can book your session months in advance, I am currently leaving the appointments as unconfirmed. This way, you will not be charged until the month of your session. I know it is difficult to plan in advance right now and want you to know that while your session will be on the schedule, you will not have a financial commitment until it gets closer.

photography studio update

Outdoor family sessions are yet to be announced.

Hopefully in another month we will have the photography studio caught back up and a game plan for the outdoor family season. Once we have things back and rolling, we will put out an update. If you aren’t a VIP already, you can sign up here.

Thank you so much for stopping by for the photography studio update! I hope you and your family are staying healthy and safe!
