Maternity Portraits at Mentor Headland’s Beach
This maternity portrait session took place a couple weeks ago and Mentor Headland Beach. That beach is on of Rev and Vijay's favorite places to visit so it was fitting to go there in the evening, stroll along the sand and take pictures as the sunset started.
Family Portraits at the Rock Hall
This family portrait session took place at the Rock Hall in downtown Cleveland. One of the best things I hear when I meet a new client is that they were a referral from somebody I worked with in the past. That means that a past client really likes what I'm doing and it also means that my new client is going to get what I do. Lis ...
Bridal Portraits – Film Session
Bridal Portrais on film is something I've wanted to do for a while. Not just any film though. I've been using my old 4x5 field camera for a lot of personal portrait. It's big. It's clunky. I only shoot black and white film with it. It makes beautiful images.
Kat seemed like a perfect bride to ask so we've worked together a ...
Plated Landscapes Hog Roast at Spice Acres
I had the pleasure of shooting (and eating) at the first Plated Landscapes dinner of 2015. This year's dinners kicked off with a hog roast at their Spice Acres Farm in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
Before we get to all the pictures, let's pause to remember Maxell. He was a good hog. Good and tasty.
Typically, these di ...
Supreme Court Legalizes Gay Marriage!
What a great day! Looking forward to being able to photograph all weddings - not just some!
Kat and Ricky – Our Lady of Peace and Tudor Arms
Kat and Ricky were married on a beautiful Saturday afternoon at Our Lady of Peace in Shaker Heights. The church is a special place for her family. It's the same one that her parents were married in. It's the church she grew up in.
That blessed ceremony was followed by a excellent party at the magnificent Tudor Arms. The ball ...
Ryan is a model and actor here in the Cleveland area. We connected after I put out a social media post looking for somebody to be interesting while I messed around with an old 4x5 camera and some expired film. There were no promises - old film, old chemistry and trusting me to develop it all in bathroom tub. Really, that's the d ...
Rose – Class of 2015
Rose is another Class of 2015 Senior that I had the pleasure of working with. We met on a damp afternoon at the Holden Arboretum for her portrait session and walked the grounds. It was late fall and there were some fantastics colors and fall grasses just waiting to be used as backdrops. Even though it was muddy, it was a great s ...
Beauty and the Beach
Bailey is the beauty on the beach. You might recognize her from other posts on the blog. She's become my "go to" model when I want to try something different. Different could be new gear - a new camera, a new lens. Different could also be old gear - in this case an old Canon film camera.
It was early and cold. That blanket ...
Lincoln is Six Months Old
Lincoln is six months old. Hard to believe he's getting so big already. Seems like it wasn't that long ago that I shared his newborn pictures, and it wasn't that long before that when Liz and Matt had there wedding featured here on the blog. Can't wait to what a good looking young man he is in six more months for his one year ol ...
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
I just wanted to say Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all the people that have let me be a part of their photographic world - making the memories of their weddings, families, senior years and more.
Looking forward to capture more fantastic memories and wonderful pictures in 2015!
I visited with Laura, RP, Morgan and Riley not too long ago to take pictures of their family Christmas. Earlier this year I took Riley's picture and it was great to see how much she has grown. She was a perfect little girl during this session and Morgan is a fantastic big sister. Looking forward to more sessions with them in the ...
Jackie – Class of 2015
Jackie is another of the great Class of 2015 Seniors that I worked with this year. It was a fantastic fall day when we got together in downtown Willoughby to take advantage of the some of the historic architecture around the square. Turns out the Jackie is a big fan of Christmas so we also lucked since the decorations were alread ...
Vince in Downtown
I met Vince in Downtown Cleveland for his Senior Portrait Session. He's another of the great Eastlake North Seniors I've had the pleasure to work with this year. He's one of the best dressed Seniors I've ever met. The kid looks sharp.
