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!
Parents of big families are always apologizing to me for their kids… the noise, the fights, the crying, whatever! I love it! I love big families! I’m the youngest of four, so that chaos is what I grew up with, and I love to photograph it! This family came in recently and they were so great to work with! The kids were soooo sweet! This first picture cracks me up though– How perfect are each of those expressions!! Probably not what the parents will want to hang over the fireplace, but definitely worth a post on this blog!
Exactly where they all want to be...
I love how big families fill up the frame!
My sister-in-law & her sister asked me to take family photos as a great Mother’s Day gift to their Mom! The weather was amazing, and the Shaker Heights setting was incredible! We had so much fun! We yelled out so many fun kinds of food to get her 4-year-old niece to smile, that my pregnant sister-in-law told me that she left the session starving! Haha! Here is a peek at some of the fun family photos from their Mother’s Day photo session…
Some great Mother's Day Pix
Happy Mother's Day!
