welcome to

As a parent and a photographer, there are moments that hold a special place in our hearts—none more so than capturing the one-year milestone session of our little ones. Recently, I had the joy of photographing my son’s first-year celebration, opting for the comfort of home to create timeless memories that will be treasured for a lifetime.

The day was nothing simple. The weather was a beautiful 60 degrees in the winter with the sun shining. I just had to take the opportunity to grab some quick portraits of my littlest to remember him at 12 months.

One Year Milestone Session

The simplicity of the backyard setting allowed my son to shine, with each photograph capturing the purity of his joy and curiosity. The goal was to create images that wouldn’t just be beautiful now but could be proudly displayed for years to come. By choosing a neutral palette, the resulting photographs are classic heirlooms. These images will stand the test of time, blending seamlessly with any décor or style, and serving as a visual representation of the love and joy that surrounds our family.

The session began with capturing individual portraits of my son, focusing on his charming expressions, tiny fingers, and the innocence that defines the first year of life. Whether he was sitting, crawling, or taking those wobbly steps, every moment was a precious memory frozen in time.

In the heart of a Cleveland suburb, amidst the whispering pines and the crisp winter air, I recently had the pleasure of capturing a unique blend of joy and milestones. This Cleveland Tree Farm Milestone session unfolded early in the morning at a charming tree farm, where the magic of a first birthday seamlessly intertwined with the warmth of a family portrait session. The rows of evergreens created a picturesque scene, framing the family in a winter wonderland that perfectly mirrored the festive season.

With the family’s love for the outdoors, the decision to photography both the first birthday milestone photography & family christmas portraits at a tree farm was a natural choice. The lush evergreen backdrop not only complemented their outdoor lifestyle but also added a touch of holiday enchantment, given that baby girl’s birthday fell close to Christmas.

Mom’s loving touch was evident in every detail, including the homemade smash cake she crafted for her precious baby girl. The joy on the little one’s face as she dove into her cake added an extra layer of sweetness to the photographs, capturing the essence of a first birthday celebration.

Timing is crucial when photographing little ones, and the early morning session proved to be a strategic choice. Before the morning naps were beckoning, we navigated through the tree farm, capturing moments of laughter, exploration, and genuine family connection. Milestone sessions, typically lasting 20 to 30 minutes, are a perfect window to hold a toddler’s attention. The fleeting nature of these sessions allows for the genuine, unscripted moments that define a family’s unique story.

As the sun cast its golden hue on the tree farm, I couldn’t help but reflect on the magic of the moment. Combining a first birthday celebration and family photography at the tree farm encapsulated the essence of this outdoor-loving family and created timeless memories that will be cherished for years to come.

As a parent, there’s nothing quite like witnessing the growth and uniqueness of each of your children. Recently, I had tested a “new to me” photography adventure that aimed to capture the essence of my two boys, despite their six-year age gap. This session was a celebration of my youngest son’s six-month milestone and an opportunity to try out a trending photography style known as “personality portraits.” Set in the picturesque Lake Arts Studio, we had the perfect canvas to showcase the beauty, charm, and individuality of my children, free from distracting elements.

Photography has the remarkable power to capture not just the faces but the very souls of its subjects. My goal for these portraits were to go beyond traditional portraits and delve into the world of “personality portraits.” These unique photos, often in black and white, focus on showcasing a child’s individuality and charm by eliminating any distractions from the background. The studio’s serene and unadorned backdrop allowed my boys to take center stage. This clean and simple canvas was the perfect backdrop to highlight their personalities, expressions, and unique features. It was all about them, unencumbered by any distractions.

Cleveland Personality Portraits

The session was not just about capturing their physical features but also celebrating my youngest son’s six-month milestone. Each gurgle, gummy grin, and thoughtful expression was beautifully immortalized in these photos. The journey from babyhood to childhood is a remarkable one, and it’s a privilege getting to document my own sweet boys. Despite the age gap, my boys are distinct individuals with their own unique traits and charms. The personality portraits captured their essence—my eldest’s silly and charming spirit and my youngest’s endearing innocence. These portraits are a testament to their individuality and the love that binds them together.

The first year of your baby’s life goes by ever so quickly. Our little T, is currently 9 months old and I promise you, I blinked after I had him at the hospital and here we are.

I’ve been trying to figure out how to bottle up & freeze time – if I figure it out, I promise I will let you know!

This sweet little one, I have had the joy of photographing when his mama was pregnant with him, when he was a newborn and now, for his first birthday! (Plus I photographed his mom & dad’s wedding day too! This family is so special to me!) It has been such a thrill getting to watch him grow in his first year!

I know how precious this time is and how as a mother, I wish that I could keep my babies little for a little while longer.

Just recently I have been photographing so many milestone sessions and it is so sweet to be able to photograph newborns and come back at their one year milestone to see how they have grown! And I had the sweet pleasure of getting to do that with little guy, M, here! M’s first birthday milestone session was held at home which proved to be a perfect backdrop using some fun leftover decor from his birthday party the day before! His mama loves neutrals as much as I do and I was just in awe of his sweet little romper! The cutest!!

S & J were one of my past wedding couples who wed back in 2020! I was SO thrilled for them when I heard they were growing their family! S & J were just one of the kindest couples that I have had the pleasure of photographing and their families were so wonderful too!

We chose to photograph their sweet baby M’s newborn session at their home! Mom has such a knack for decorating and the house was just a beautiful spot for their portraits! Their home has so much character & light in every corner of the house, I had a hard time choosing one spot to stay in! I wanted to photograph it all everywhere! (I think that is a great problem to have!) 🙂

Baby M was getting ready to turn 3 months old before we were able to photograph his newborn session and S & J invited Mom’s parents along for some portraits too and I really, really loved that! It was just such a happy time and I loved getting to see these two start this wonderful chapter in their lives!
