Baby Emma | Lorain Ohio Lifestyle Newborn Photos

This little one was so pretty in pink during her summer newborn session. Even her new baby skin was pink. Her parents were pretty rosy and smitten too.

Baby Ben | Cleveland Lifestyle Baby Photos

Ben and his big brother, Jake, melted my heart during this session. Jake is just about the most animated little kid I've ever been around. He's going to be an awesome (and hilarious) brother to Ben. And there will never be a dull moment for mom and dad! ;)

Baby Mary | Tremont Lifestyle Baby Photos

Oh my goodness. This sweet, peaceful newborn session has a soft spot in my heart. At six weeks old, little Mary was technically not a newborn when we took these photos, and that's because she and her mom (and dad!) went through some trying times at the beginning of her life. Some complications after her birth left her mom, Caitlin, in the hospital for a lot longer than anyone anticipated, and it was hard all around.

During the session, I commented on how sweet and easy Mary was, and Caitlin said she thinks it's because she's had to deal with lots of ups and downs already. Whether or not that's true, this little girl is an angel. Her entire family is home now, and one thing is certain: They love each other!

Baby Parker | Chagrin Falls Lifestyle Newborn Photos

This family is one of my favorites. They have so much love and patience and respect for each other. It's the best thing to photograph. I captured big brother Leo's newborn session last year and I was crossing my fingers that I'd get to photograph another of Del and Andrea's babies. My wish came true and Miss Parker was just as much of a dream as her brother. I allllmost shared every photo from this session but decided to go with my favorites or my favorites. Enjoy the sweetness!
