Pillow Cases & Snuggled Faces

Sometimes, the most quintessential family time is spent in bed… napping, snuggling, watching a movie under the covers… I know that when my twins were born, my most precious moments were spent laying in bed with them, and looking at them against the clean white sheets while they were in nothing but a diaper.  It was pure.  It was simple.  It was the only place I wanted to be, and it became the theme of their newborn photo shoot because of that.

Well, not everyone has a simple clean bed or the right light to make great photos… so we have set the stage!

In honor of Father’s Day, our newest themed Sessionette event is aimed at letting you crawl under the covers of our deliciously inviting bed (yep! right smack in the middle of our studio), and let us capture your family together in the simplest and best way.

Our Father’s Day themed sessionette is about pausing time to be with the ones we love most. These photo shoots are the perfect way to capture your family being with each other. So, let’s unwind this Father’s Day by cuddling in bed, laughing out loud, and being who you really are. Pillow fights are welcome!

Tuesdays through Friday all of June and July.

Print, Digital & Combo packages are available starting at $75.  No session fees.

Max’s Newborn Photo Shoot

Anybody who’s been in our studio knows that one of the best photos on our walls is a little tutu’d tush walking away from the camera… Well, that famed bottom has some cute competition now with her little brother, Max!  This little man has some serious squish to squeeze, and boy did I have fun with him!! We folded him into little balls, played around outside with some “boy stuff,” and captured the little “Bable Aingies” (the words of a tired new mom translating to “Angle Babies”).

I’ve known this family for years (maternity photos, newborn photography, and various other ages and stages of life), and enjoy every time they come into the studio– mostly because they keep bringing these amazing kiddos!  Take a look at this sweet little bundle they brought in most recently, and check out some of the fun we had with him at his newborn photo shoot!

Makeover Mommy Mini Sessions were a hit!

We saw all kinds of “beautiful” in here over the course of the Makeover My Mommy Mini-Sessions! Some kids took mercy on their moms and did their best to make their moms look like princesses, while others flat out declared their intention of making mom “look like a clown” or “look soooo ugly!” We alternated between laughing hysterically at the antics and oohing & ahhhing in adoration of the adorable interactions that took place.
We couldn’t keep this much fabulous to ourselves… so check out some of our favorite shots from this mini-session set!
Watch out dads… Father’s Day is coming soon ;)

Rick’s Magical Headshots

I couldn’t help myself with that title… I mean, Rick’s a magician!  He’s THE magician, and he is as kind as he is talented.  We had a great time chatting about his work, his many endeavors in the entertainment industry, and everything else as we snapped away capturing updated headshots for his promotional materials.

Lately we’ve really been growing our corporate work, doing more headshots than in years past… and this session is a perfect example of why.  What we love about portraiture is the ability to translate the character, the personality, and overall essence of the subject in an image.  And while with kids, this provides an invaluable keepsake and memory, with corporate clients it allows the person to put in front of the world an image of themselves that portrays who they are, what they offer, and how they want to be seen.

Rick wears many hats in his professional life, and it was our goal to capture all of them during our photo shoot.  He runs a entertainment booking agency, Cleveland Entertainers, a non-profit that helps kids earn money for their school through selling tickets to his performances with Magic Gives Back, and then there is the way many of us were first exposed to Rick Smith, Jr’s talent in the first place… his work as a magician and Guinness Book of World Record holding card thrower.  So we took all of those facets of his work life, and provided as much variety in his images as he has in his career.

And a shout out to Gabriella, who held the dandelion while Rick threw cards at her!
