Cleveland may have the occasional (ok… frequent) crummy weather days, but when we do get those beautiful summer and fall days, we have a plethora of outdoor photo locations at our disposal! I had so much fun with Adeline and her two-month old baby brother, Henry this week– we climbed, played hide & seek, and chased countless squirrels… The biggest stunner of the day though, were the smiles we got from this baby boy while in his big sister’s arms– look at that face!
No matter the ages of the kids, or the location we pick, my favorite part of my job is just getting to capture beautiful portraits of the kids, document their interactions, and chronicle this particular time in each family’s life… and with the stunning backdrops this area has to offer, the results are definitely wall-worthy.
I have three brothers… it is one of the biggest defining aspects of my identity. For years I hated it… but as I grew up, I love it. I love the dynamic of the boys together. So when I get to photograph these brothers, I can’t help but laugh as their mom tears her hair out… the wrestling, the teasing, the punching, the boys being boys. I laugh, because while their mom sees the chaos, I see the cocmoradery… the best friendships forming. The brotherly bond that they will have the rest of their life. So while I could show you pictures of the madness, pictures of the chaos… I’m gonna show you my two favorite shots from Mason, Will & Nolan’s photo shoot this year. I don’t know how much longer they’ll put up with our annual outdoor family photo shoots, but while I get to have these boys in front of my camera, I’m going to love every second of it!
October has just begun, but we’re already nearly booked up for the month! Want some spectacular outdoor family photos? Don’t wait to call for your spot! At this point, weekends are nearly sold out with Kim… Gabriella and Sharon still have some available days. Weekdays have a lot more flexibility. November still looks good, but Cleveland weather is unpredictable… schedule early, and leave the wiggle-room for those nasty days that require us to reschedule…
Not sure where you want to do the session? We can help you decide! Inside is always an option, but we have all winter for that! Come to Eton and go outside our studio, like these sweet girls did last week… or have a chat with us and we’ll brainstorm to find the perfect location for you and your family.
Look around… Mother Nature is starting to show off… grab those cute kids and challenge her to a beauty/cute-off!

Photographing weddings in Cleveland, we have gotten familiar with the venues, venders and location options available to us… But for this couple’s wedding, we literally were shipped off to the middle of nowhere (a.k.a. Camp Pinewood in Muskegon, Michigan). But with the uncertainty surrounding the weather, the cell-reception, and quantity of mosquito bites came the fun, adventure, and absolute unparalleled certainty of the love between this couple. The rain may dampen (like that one?) the spirits of some brides, but not only did Noelle smile brightly through the touch-and-go weather patterns; but the rain provided us with some of the most incredible light a photographer could ask for! It’s not every wedding where we get to zip-line, shoot arrows at targets (yes, I got a bullseye!), but the thing that was the most memorable take-away for us after spending the weekend watching Dustin and Noelle through our lenses was the rare and magnificent way that this pair looks at each other, interacts, cares, laughs & of course… dances. Here are some of my favorites from this fabulous camp wedding!
