After years of photographing children and families, Kim has decided to pack up her studio and take a completely new direction… Landscape Photography. Yup, for those of you that know Kim she is a huge fan of all things Ansel Adams. She is really looking forward to capturing Cleveland’s scenic parks and city views. Her decision came after a long day of newborn session mishaps. The first session left Kim covered in baby pee, the second left her with a smudge of poop on her favorite cashmere sweater, and when things couldn’t possibly get worse… they did. The third and final session was a slightly older, teething baby boy and he might have gently nibbled and scared Kim’s arm. Long story short, Kim is ready for a switch up.
Kim wants you to all know that she has truly enjoyed spending time with your family and watching your children grow. She has set up a referral hotline to help your family find their new photographer, the number is 1-800-April-Fools!
For the fourth year, I got the treat of spending an afternoon taking outdoor family photos with Mr. R and Miss E (and their parents, of course)! These kids are definitely some of my favorite people around! They are so cute, and so sweet– and always excited to play and take pictures! Taking advantage of the extraordinary beauty of the autumn leaves, we explored areas of Chagrin were every turn provided a new picturesque backdrop! You just need to watch out for Mr. Water Snake, right guys?!?
So much fun playing in the leaves!
Miss E treated me to an original song she composed for me. I think it should be #1!!!
During a recent pregnancy session in our studio, where the baby is going to be named for his Dad, I came up with a cool idea for a shot– After I took it, I said to the couple with glee: “Oooh! Regardless of what other shots we take today, I know that’s going to be my favorite!” … I was right! We got tons of other great traditional and fine-art portraits, but this one was definitely my top pick! Between the positioning, perspective, and the dramatic lighting, it looks like an image of the Solar System!
