Baby Kolbe | Cuyahoga Falls Ohio Newborn Photos

It only makes sense to follow up Mary and Steven's maternity photos with their cute baby boy, Kolbe! Come on. Look at that face in that first photo down there. What an alert little guy! He loved being held and swaddled and was the perfect mix of asleep and awake for his photos. 

Mary and Steven, you make wonderful parents! 

Mary & Steven | John Carroll University Maternity Photos

Mary and Steven were the most joyful parents-to-be (past tense because their son has arrived!). As a newly pregnant lady myself, it was inspiring to watch.

They started dating while Mary was in college at John Carroll, so this setting was the perfect spot for them. JCU is in my backyard and I had NEVER done a shoot there. The gorgeous evening we got coupled with the stunning architecture around campus made me want to come back again and again. Any takers? :)

Janean & Brendan | The Club at Hillbrook Chagrin Falls Wedding

One thing about getting behind on blogging ... I get to relive all these gorgeous wedding days months later! :)

Janean and Brendan had a beautiful summer wedding at one of my very favorite Cleveland venues: The Club at Hillbrook. That place is so dreamy and it was the perfect setting for them to start their lives together. Officially! These two had been long distance for years and their favorite thing about their wedding day finally arriving was that they'd get to live in the same place together for the first time since college. I'd say that's reason to celebrate!

Acacia Reservation Lifestyle Family Photos

Another goody from last summer. Peyton is about to have a little sister, so I'd say it's time I share these solo photos of her. That blonde hair and those bloomers get me just as much as her sweet personality. What a cutie!
