A Christmas Portrait Surprise

I photographed Lainey for senior session at the end of the summer. We had a fun afternoon at Brecksville’s town square and the Cleveland Metroparks. After delivering her senior photo album, she dropped me an email. “Hey, I have an idea for a Christmas gift for my parents…” She went on to write that she would be going away to college and thought a portrait of her and her siblings would be an awesome surprise for mom and dad.

So a plan was hatched. Not only did Lainey book her photo session, but figured out an excuse to get everyone out of the house together, coordinated the sibling outfits and drove everyone to our shoot location at Coe Lake in Berea (Sorry, mom and dad Swings ‘N Things was just a diversion).

We scheduled her post consultation and she purchased her favorites for mom and dad. Lainey had worked all summer at Lumpy’s Ice Cream and saved her tips for Christmas presents. She wanted for her parents to have something special to mark this graduation year when all her and her siblings were all together. The photographs were presented in a slide show on Christmas Eve.

Here are a few of the favorites. sage-siblings-1014 sage-siblings-1042-2sage-siblings-1051 sage-siblings-1056-2 sage-siblings-1072-2 sage-siblings-1073-2sage-siblings-1053 sage-siblings-1083-2 sage-siblings-1086 sage-siblings-1094 sage-siblings-1100Outtake photos are sometimes the favorites.

Elizabeth’s Birthday at White Flower Cake

I was very excited for the opportunity to be White Flower Cake’s official photographer for their events happening in their new location in Solon, Ohio. Their beautiful new classroom is the perfect place for an event, especially for a lovely birthday girl who loves Frozen( And what 7 year-old doesn’t love Frozen?!) Time to break out the buttercream!

Jourdan and Jake (+ Jace)

When Jourdan mentioned that Jake proposed to her at Edgewater Beach, I knew that would be the perfect place for their engagement session. And of course they had to bring the new love in their lives, little Jace.

Stauffer Family

A few years back I became the official photographer for North Royalton Dance Academy . There I met an energetic owner/director, Amy, who loved kids and loved to teach. I was thrilled to shoot for her.  Along the way, I began to shoot her adorable kids and I became her official family photographer too.
