Baby Finn | In-Home Akron Ohio Newborn Photos

And I, will hold you tight, like the moon in the arms of the sky
And I, will keep you warm, I will build a fire in this house

Sons and Daughters, Allman Brown

Finn was so longed for and is the luckiest little guy to have been born to Melanie and Matt. I can't wait to watch this sweet baby grow. :)

Baby Elly | At-Home Shaker Heights Ohio Baby Photos

Nathan and I are so thankful to have friends going through this stage of life with us. David and Amy live down the street from us and go to our church, and they just recently welcomed their first baby into the world too!

Elly was long awaited and is so, so loved. Photographing this family of three was incredibly touching and made me ready to meet Nolan!

Enjoy my favorites from this sweet session. And check out the grip Elly has on her dad's finger! She grabbed on to his hand not long after her birth, so it was fun to document that little detail. :)

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 Remi | Cleveland Newborn Photos

There are few things I love more than photographing a past bride and groom with their first baby. Kelly and Steve are going to be the best parents! Welcome to the world, Remi!
