At Home Family Photos | Shaker Heights, Ohio

When people ask us where to do a photo session there are so many possible answers. It really depends on so many factors. It depends who is being photographed, where the photographs will be displayed, what look you’re going for and so much more! There are so many beautiful locations around town but one of our favorite suggestions is an at-home photo session. It works for so many reasons. First, what could be more comfortable and easy then your own home? Especially for young children, photographing them in their natural environment can help them feel safe and lends to an enjoyable experience.  Another great reason to do photos at home is that the photos will definitely look great on display since the backgrounds are your home!  At home we can shoot indoors and out and it’s easy to change outfits too.  Have we convinced you to schedule an at-home photo session?  Now the only thing left is to find time on the calendar!  Give us a call today to secure your spot.  We look forward to seeing you soon!

Family photography is always amazing but there’s something extra special about large family photos that include different generations. We get such joy out of watching the different relationships and bonds between people and capturing it through our lense is both exciting and rewarding. We recently got to do a session with long-time clients who brought along extended family for this year’s shoot. We got a variety of shots, each more beautiful than the next. Photographing different generations and groupings of family members really differentiated this session from their past shoots where the focus was all on their immediate family. Here you can see the special bond between grandparents and grandchildren and the beauty and wisdom of the all female and all male generational photos. Lucky for this group they all live in town and get to see other often. Whether that’s the case for your family or you have an occasion coming up where you’ll all be together family photos are always a good idea!  We’re already booking up for Thanksgiving weekend but we have a few spots available.  If you’d like to get on the calendar for family photos please call our studio at 216.229.PICS (7427).

What to Wear for Fall Photos – Creams and Neutrals

Another great option for standing out against the colorful background of the autumn leaves, whether on or off the trees is to brighten you and your family up with soft but noticeable neutrals.  This option keeps it simple and traditional, but makes a statement that never gets old.  This family chose perfectly for their outdoor fall photo session and whether next to their classic car, or among the bed of fallen leaves, the clean simple look of their cream sweaters and neutral colors allowed them to stand out and look great!

Snow… it’s not too late!

Okay, I’m a pun-loving dork!  But no… the snow we’ve been graced with this week does NOT mean it’s too late for your autumn outdoor photos!!  If you look around, under the wetness and muddy mess we have now, the colorful leaves are holding strong to the trees, and the carpet of fallen leaves are still there.  Once it dries up, we’ll be back out there and back at it capturing this spectacular time of year with your families.  We do outdoor shoots well into December, but if you want one, don’t wait!  As this week reminded us, we need to leave room for rescheduling for bad weather.  So don’t wait until it’s too late– call for your fall photo shoot now!

A Man’s Best Friend

“The one absolutely unselfish friend that humans can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts them, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous is their dog.”

George Graham Vest, Senator of Missouri, 1855

I was considered lucky to be able to grow up with a dog. However, my first pet was a hamster named Bernie. He was the greatest little creature but he has never met the love I have for my dog Missy. We first got Missy when I was in 5th grade. She was 5 weeks old when we picked her out from the litter of puppies and took her home with us. Missy is now a little over 13 years old and in my eyes, has been the greatest dog. Growing up she was always by my side. She has always slept at the foot of the bed and kept my feet nice and warm :) As an only child, it was always nice to have someone there. Just to be there, nothing else. I feel like she has always known her purpose as probably most dogs do. Dogs know their owners and feel a sense of loyalty to them. Missy has been nothing short of a faithful companion, and has always been a fun and loving dog. She is currently very sick and will probably not be with us much longer. It is a fact that I’m learning to accept but I know that when the time comes it won’t be easy. She is truly a part of our family.

They say that the history of humans and dogs coexisting goes as far back as 15,000 years. Studies have shown that the co-evolution of dogs with humans created a set of cognitive abilities between the two that makes the bond between humans and dogs unique. Our connection with them is special and that is probably why they are the most common pet in the world. We take them into our homes and they naturally become part of the family. Many clients ask us if we are willing to photograph their dogs. Of course! After all, they are a part of the family! Their lives our much shorter than ours and so capturing them in photos is a great way to remember them. Unfortunately, I just met with a client of ours that recently had to put her beloved pet to sleep. It was completely unexpected. The dog’s health rapidly started to decline right after their photo shoot. But guess what? Both of their dogs were at the shoot that day. Ironically, they had decided to have photos taken just 2 weeks prior. As sad as it was to show her the photos, I was glad that we could capture their four legged best friend with the whole family. This is what makes photographing so rewarding, to help people remember their loved ones, including their dogs.
