Marlia + Manny's Wedding: Cleveland, OH
I love all of my couples, but there's something extra special about these two. I've known Manny for 8 years, back when we were both working for the same employer. We've seen each other grow in so many ways and I couldn't be happier for him than I am now. He's found his soulmate and life partner and she is AMAZING. Marlia is sweet, gentle, patient, and makes things happen. They keep each other motivated and push each other to be the best versions of themselves. Isn't that what
Ewart Family Maternity Session: Cleveland, OH
Mother's Day is this Sunday! A day to celebrate that special lady that brought you into this world (and possibly threatened to take you out of it at some point or another.) ;-) I know I definitely look forward to brunch with the family, hand made cards by my kids, and the perfect gift they (aka my husband) picked out for me. Oh, and flowers. I can't forget about the flowers. So today, I'd like to share a session of one of my favorite families and one of the best moms I know.

Engagement Session: Washington D.C.
Maria and Jordan's bright, outgoing, and happy personalities compliment each other so well. They really love making each other smile, and spent most of their session laughing.

And can you believe, their wedding will be this Sunday, July 3 at 78th Street Studios in Cleveland, OH. I cannot wait to celebrate with these two! Enjoy! #engagement #couple #washingtondc #cleveland
Family session/Gender reveal: Cleveland, OH
So, I was texting my good friend and one of my favorite clients, Eboni one day. Just in case you need a reminder of the amazingly adorable gender reveal session we did to prepare for baby Adrienne's arrival, please see below. Cuteness overload alert! Back to my story. Eboni casually lets me know that they need an updated family session and gender reveal. What?! Yes, that's how I found out she was expecting. I sent her back something like "AAAHHHHKSJOFEILCEKI!!!" cause I was j
Ayesha + Saud's Mehndi: Cleveland, OH
Ayesha and Saud started their wedding weekend festivities with their Mehndi. The beautiful bride was adorned with amazing henna artwork on her hands and feet. (If you look closely, you may even see her groom's name hiding among the patterns!) The evening was full of family blessing the couple, dancing, great food, and everyone just having a great time before the wedding day. It was nice to be a part of all the excitement of the day! Enjoy! Venue: 700 Beta Wedding and Banquet
Cleveland Entrepreneur Session: Joi
I love seeing someone living their passion. Joi is an amazingly talented wedding and floral stylist based in Dayton, Ohio, but works with brides all over Northeast Ohio. She traveled all the way to Cleveland for her session with little ol' me. And I'm so happy she did. You may have seen my post last week on Instagram about props. Joi was the beauty in that post. When done right, props can add an extra element of creativity to a shoot. But you DON'T want to over do it, and the
Cleveland Maternity Session: The Smith Family
The families I get to work with are just amazing. Shurrell originally contacted me for an in home newborn session as her little man was due to arrive very soon. I absolutely love the authentic feel of these types of sessions and I couldn't wait to do it. But why wait to meet her family until then? So we had to set up a maternity session. I have seriously never seen anyone look that AMAZING just a few short weeks before their due date. She was glowing and alllll belly. Love it
Engagement photos: Show your personality!
It's not every day that you get to get dolled up and take photos with your boo. In fact, for most of you, you have probably never taken professional photos with your significant other. So how are you supposed to know what to wear, where to shoot? The most important thing I tell my couples is to be yourself. Tiana and Cortez definitely had a relaxed and casual side, but they also had an elegant, chic side that they chose to highlight for their engagement session. Tiana wore a
Little Italy Family Session: Cleveland, OH
Marcia and Andie are two peas in a pod. Always laughing, these two have such vibrant, beautiful personalities. Andie is a fun, curious, opinionated, sweet little girl and Marcia is just so proud of her and everything she does. We were up early to explore beautiful Little Italy, just one of the many charming neighborhoods in the Cleveland area. Thank you, ladies for spending the morning with me!! Enjoy. #family #cleveland
