Cleveland Newborn Photography

Welcome to the World!

We have been photographing this family for a few years now.  It started at their gorgeous destination wedding and we’ve had the pleasure of watching their family grow.  We were so excited to meet the newest member of the family and watch how sweet they all are together.

We take great pride in our newborn photography.  We aim to create not only images but memories that will be cherished for years to come.  Here’s the scoop on our newborn sessions:

The best time to photograph a newborn is within the first two weeks—ideally between 7-10 days.  Newborn sessions are scheduled for 2 hours. Little ones need comfort, food, and potty clean-ups!  Because we often try to get the babies to sleep, there is a lot of waiting… they’re the bosses!  During this time our goal is to keep your baby as comfortable as possible. Special heaters are set up around the set and blankets are layered as cushions to ensure that your child is always warm and comfy.

Keep in mind that babies photograph better naked, in a diaper, or just a plain onesie. By keeping it simple we are able to keep more focus on your newborn. We can provide accessories such as hats and headbands but you’re more than welcome to bring your own props to add a personal touch to the photos.

Are you expecting or know someone that is?  Call us to schedule a newborn session 216.229.PICS (7427)

Brook’s At Home Newborn Shoot

This is one cuuuuuute baby boy!  We kept it simple for Brook’s newborn session… he was snuggled warm and cozy on a chaise in his mom & dad’s bedroom in front of a window that provided the perfect gentle light to compliment the photos.  We see, and sometimes even do very elaborate poses and props for newborn photos… the babies are so sleepy and bendy it’s hard to resist!  But sometimes, it’s nice to focus on the peacefulness, the simplicity, and the serenity of a brand new baby with images that are just that… This little guy’s newborn photos aren’t about showing off what we can do, they are about showing off this beautiful baby.

Sam’s Newborn Photos

Families come and go from our studio, and even if their session was the first time we met, they leave holding a piece of our hearts… Last week, however we had a new family come in who already had it’s place in my heart.  My lifelong friends and family, Brian & Tal… and their new addition, Baby Samuel.  This newborn shoot was especially heartwarming for me, since I introduced the couple that are now a family.  It was truly special for me to get to chronicle this monumental stage in their lives.

Here are some of my favorite photos from this newborn photo session…

Baby Harper and Her Big Brother

Harper came in for her newborn session last week, and while she was as pretty as could be, and the perfect model, it was her big brother, Tyler that stole the show.  Not for his handsome face, not for his cooperative demeanor, and not for his adorable laugh and silliness… those were all present in spades, but it was his love and adoration for his new baby sister that had us all swooning.  We do so many newborn shoots in our studio, but some leave impressions beyond others.  This was one of those cases.  I hope to get to continue to follow this pair’s relationship as Harper grows up and can interact with her loving bro– she’s a lucky girl… my brothers never liked me that much!  … and if they happen to be reading this, I’M KIDDING– don’t beat me up!  heehee

So, in honor of this display of affection, and Valentine’s Day around the corner… we’re feeling the love.  Keep reading our posts, and you’ll find some surprises inside that you won’t want to miss. We’re showing our love, so make sure you don’t miss out!
