C Family - Maternity Session - Cleveland, OH

To say I am ready for this baby is an UNDERSTATEMENT! This baby is going to be my next niece or nephew- the family's first surprise!! I'm afraid if it's not a girl my daughter will try to put it back where it came from until it is a girl (jk, kinda). But seriously, the amount of love that is waiting for this little addition on the outside of the womb is outstanding. I feel so lucky to be in a family that cherishes each and every member and anxiously awaits each and every arrival!

C Family - Maternity Session - Cleveland, OH

This sweet boy was born ten weeks early and came to see me at 8 weeks old. This is a lot "older" than I typically see newborns, but his adjusted age was still only "two weeks early" by the time I saw him so he was still just like having a newborn even though he was a little older. He was still teeny tiny, but had grown so much since he was born at 2 lbs. 14 ozs. The pride was written all over his Papa's  face and Mama had some of the sweetest feedback I have ever heard, "You deserve the stars!! Your gift is such a blessing You actually capture the smallest memories and allow us the opportunity to gaze forever. {This is} exactly how your made me feel during our session!!!" Enjoy ...

Sometimes life really surprises you and this sweet family is anxiously waiting the arrival of twins girls!! Like any other curveball life has thrown them they have caught it and taken it with stride prepping and preparing as best as possible. They joy they get from each other as a family is overflowing and contagious and I can only assume that twins will be double the exhaustion, but also double the joy in the long game.

When I first talked to Kaitie about maternity pictures she really wasn't interested and even though I loved being pregnant, I love other people being pregnant, I can totally respect that not everyone feels exactly that same way. I know that we don't feel ourselves or look ourselves, the future is suddenly uncertain and exciting, but also unknown, which can be so scary. I started thinking about the mama's I come across that don't want maternity sessions for one reason or another and then started down the road of thinking about motherhood in general. I approached Kaitie again and asked what if her session wasn't focused around her and being pregnant, but about Kit. The first, the baby that ...

C Family - Maternity Session - Cleveland, OH

The fog in this session was so Cleveland; it reminded me of how this city has grit, attitude and a mind of its own. We are often at mercy of the lake with the winds, rains, blizzards (and in this case fog) that it brings to the city, just like as parents we are at the mercy of our toddlers. The H family had pretty specific requests when they reached out to me about updating a wall gallery in their home, but of course, as is the way with toddlers, they have a mind of their own. On my way to the lake for their session I saw the fog and knew it wasn't what they originally had in mind for a glowy, golden hour session. I contacted them to let them know of the weather conditions, but they were ...
