This little boy could not be more loved. Kannan's family followed him around Huntington Beach for an hour, pausing to pick him up and swing him around, showing him the sand and water, kissing his (adorable) cheeks. And I got to follow them around and document all of it. This is why I love family sessions; my style is very photojournalistic and my goal is always to show what it's really like to be a kid. It's always nice to have a posed family photo, but it's also nice to remember what being 1 year old is like. So here's Kannan at 1. (And have you seen his hair??)
It was a BEAUTIFUL night to spend on the beach. Cleveland really does have some of the most gorgeous scenery, and that includes Lake Erie. I was so glad Sarah and Anthony picked Huntington Beach for their session because it's one of my favorite places to shoot!
These two knew right away that they were going to be together forever. After a chance meeting at a car dealership ... here they are, ready to get married! I just love stories like theirs. One moment could have changed everything, but obviously Sarah and Anthony are meant to be.
You two are ridiculously good looking.
Love these shots ...
Such a perfect hazy Cleveland sunset.
It was an absolutely perfect day all around when I met Melissa and Mike in Bay Village. These two are the most laid back, go-with-the-flow couple and were up for anything I asked them to do (read: getting wet; see below). I'm pretty sure this says it all: Mike gave up a basketball game to do these photos. If that's not love I don't know what is. Haha. :) Look for Melissa and Mike on the blog again next month. They'll be tying the knot at the end of September!
