Textures of the Fall Photos


It’s often hard to look past the incredible colors of autumn in Ohio… and why would you ever want to?!?  But this transitional season brings out more changes in nature than just the color of the leaves… As they dry out, the leaves become more crinkly (that’s a word, right?), and when they fall and carpet the ground, you have images that not only provide a textured foreground and background; but the additional light that is let through the thinning leaves of the trees creates a play of tones and a spottiness that enhances photographs beautifully.  This family’s outdoor Fall photo shoot in the South Chagrin Reservation demonstrates everything I’m talking about.  For fun, I took away the color, and finished these photos in an antiqued tone that allows the light and texture to perfectly play off of one another and makes these images just as striking as if they were in full color– just in a different way.

Family Photo Shoot in Shaker Lakes


The sun is shining and the leaves are turning! The peak of fall has officially arrived in Cleveland and what a perfect time to have outdoor family photos taken. Not only is everything more colorful, but it also seems as though the sunlight takes on more of a golden tone this time of year. And when you combine that with 70 degree weather in mid-October, you have the perfect ingredients for a photo shoot. Here are a few of my favorites from a session in Shaker Lakes, enjoy!

Perfect Time for Senior Photos


My babies are 5 months old… and I’m already having anxiety about them going off to college!!!  When the time comes when your baby makes this grown-up move, doing a commemorative photo shoot is a great way to freeze time.

Whether the school requires you take them, or you just want your own keepsakes to commemorate your kids’ Senior year, the Fall is the perfect time to capture senior photos!  The backdrop of the changing leaves and the cooler weather makes this season pretty unbeatable photography.

We do a ton of Senior Photos, and help our clients design their order to best fit their wants & needs– be it a canvas for the wall that showcases the passage of time, an album holding a collection of Mom’s favorites for her to cry over when the house is a little too empty, or a stack of wallets for the soon-to-be graduate to pass out to friends… the possibilities are endless.

Jayden is FIVE!


I’m sorry that I haven’t gotten around to posting this until now… I’m late, and missed the big day… but I just blame the babies :)

I’ve had the privilege of photographing Jayden since he was one… been in my studio?  Well that handsome guy, shirtless with a sport coat and fedora featured in the five-image composite was him on our first photo “date.”  And it was love at first sight!  Since then we’ve played in urban settings, in our studio, and most recently on the grounds of Hillbrook Club.  Jayden is just such a character… cool to the bone, and rocks the air guitar like I’ve never seen.

Here are a few of his mom’s favorites from our most recent session… Sorry again for the delay in posting these, but hey, he’s still 5!  :)

Happy Birthday, J…
