Taking the Photo is Only Half the Job

We know that when you make the decision to invest in your family photography it means a lot to you… we take that seriously.  But what are we doing?  Why is it an “investment” at all, when you could so easily hand a friend your iPhone on a pretty day and get the “same thing” for a simple thank you or a glass of wine as payment?  The same reason we discuss the session before hand, discuss your plans, wants/needs & preferences during & after the session, and spend the days or weeks following your order processing your images… Because the actual act of capturing the image is only the beginning.  We want the images… the final product… to perfectly fit into your life.  You didn’t hire us to simply post to Facebook and flip through images on your phone.  You wanted something more, and that’s what we continually strive to deliver.  While the pictures are of your children… the images themselves are our babies.  We want them heading out into the world looking their best, performing to their potential, and impressing everyone they come in contact with.  In order to achieve that, we spend hours… (yes, hours!) retouching, tweaking, and finishing each photo until they are each just right.  Presenting them as a grouping? Then it’s up to us to make sure that the sizing, cropping, color and contrast blends seamlessly from piece to piece.  We all absolutely adore what we get to do… and we take it seriously.  And we take it seriously because we know it is important to you.

These photos of this crew of brothers is an example of how the image right out of the camera wasn’t the finished product.  Dressed in sweaters, vests, and baby suspenders, how could I not bring out an old-world feel to the images??  I don’t know if the boys’ mom will select these images, or even this finishing… but to me, these images are all grown up, and ready for the world.

It’s Not Too Late for Fall Photos

Even though the leaves are falling from the trees, they are blanketing the ground, making yet another incredible setting for photos.  In Cleveland, we may have to suffer through snow, ice, and freezing temperatures, but the trade-off is getting this unbeatable season… and as a photographer, I’ll take it!  Check out how stunning this seasonal backdrop made Arabella’s fall photo shoot.  It was cold, but dressed warm enough, kids can be tougher than us grown-ups, and we can keep them moving to warm them up!  But while you’re not too late to get your own piece of the action, don’t wait to call us to book your outdoor fall photo shoot– Our schedule is booking up fast, and the snow is lurking around the corner…!

Sprinkler Sessions – July 25

Mini-sessions are back, and with a SPLASH!  What’s more fun than running through a sprinkler on a beautiful summer day?  Why not capture that fun, joy, the expressions and the silliness that comes along with this quintessential summertime activity?

The mini-sessions are just $20, and as always, includes a 5×7 print of our favorite image.  Additional images may be purchased that day, or after seeing the rest of the shots on an online gallery.  The prints will be available for pickup at our studio in just 2 weeks (shipping is also available).

The location will be shared when you book, so call the studio to book your Sprinkler Session now!  216.229.7427

The Odd Man Out

When getting to know the families I photograph, I often find myself relating to them in some way… Maybe it’s their personality, fashion style, sense of humor, style of images they prefer, or in this case… the number of kids.  Not only do families with four kids hit home for me, but being the only girl with three brothers, I could totally relate to this lone fella!  I’m not sure who has it worse!!  Just kidding, bros.  Another thing that I love about larger families, is the kids often seem to be so well behaved.  Used to not always getting their way, these kids are often great listeners, and more cooperative… things that make for a smooth photo session!  Check out how well these kiddos get along, and what cute group photos we got at our outdoor photo session last week at Squire’s Castle._DSC2318_ _DSC2743 _DSC2870
