In the River
I said, "Bailey, our next session should be in the river." She didn't flinch. She just asked what she should wear. So here we are after an hour in the river. Waist deep. Stumbling over rocks. Fading summer light. Wondering if there are leeches in the water.
Nicole and Greg in Ohio City
I met Nicole and Greg in Ohio City for their portrait session. We started off with a beer on the patio at Market Garden Brewery before taking a walk down W. 25th Street and stopping here and there to take some great pictures. It's such a great part of town and one of their favorite places since their first date was at Nano Brew! ...
Dance Photography in Cleveland
I'm shooting more and more dance photography in Cleveland. Several weeks back when I rented the Fuji GFX50s, I also managed to get some time with Jeff and Chandler. We met in downtown Cleveland because I've been wanting to shoot somebody dancing in the fountain at the new Public Square since it opened last year. They said they ...
Susan for Portraits at Sunset
I met Susan for portraits at sunset in a very secluded field I tend to frequent. She had found my name through a friend and just wanted to try something different. We spent about an hour walking a nearby path and then venturing far off it into the tall grass and wildflowers just as the light got magical.
Jessica and Kevin’s Engagement Photos
Jessica and Kevin's Engagement photos were taken a brisk Spring afternoon not that long ago. We met up at their house so they could have their pooches take part in the pictures before heading downtown to get close to the lake at Edgewater Park. We had a great time and the portraits turned out great. Already looking forward to t ...
One Afternoon with Candice
I spent one afternoon with Candice about a month ago. She's been a client of mine for many years and I always look forward to having her in front of my camera. It's been a few years since we've seen each other but she's always thought about doing a session like this and finally she got up the courage to go for it. I'm glad she d ...
Being Beautiful in the Studio
Haleigh spent an afternoon being beautiful in the studio. Really not much else to say about this except to get in touch if you'd like to have a session like this for yourself or to share with that special someone in your lift!
Hanna at the Beach
I met Hanna at beach and my studio for her Class of 2017 Senior portraits. We were going to do some more formal things inside but the weather was so perfect that we just worked around the outdoor space at my studio and then headed to Edgewater park to play a bit on beach and in waves. It was a great session. Hanna's huge smile l ...
Going to the River
"We're going to the river to dance", I said.
I'll try not to go on and on about these photos. Not that I'm all that verbose anyhow, but these are a little different. They are portraits of my daughter. She loves to dance. It's probably the only thing she knows how to do. By that I mean, if you asked her what she would do if ...
Lennox is Six Months Old
Lennox is six months old. Six. Months.
It's hard to believe it was six months ago that I was taking his newborn photos. Or a few months before that I was inside at the Cleveland Museum of Art taking maternity photos with his parents.
We went back to the Cleveland Museum of Art for this portrait session. Par ...
Danielle is Back
Danielle is back. She has been on the blog before. She's somebody I call to help my test out new gear - a new camera, a new lens, a new light. This time around it was a new light. Spent the better part of an hour goofing around and trying a couple different things. We made some great pictures and had a lot of fun.
Rachel is a ballerina. A dancer. It's what she does and she does it well. I see get to watch her every week because she is also one of the senior students at the studio my daughter dances at. She's a Senior at Lake Catholic too. A while back we met at my studio to make a series of photos that would be her High School Senior Po ...
Family Portrait Session
I met up with my old friend Chef James for a family portrait session with his beautiful wife and children back in December. The Chef and I go way back - like kindergarten days. A few years back he relocate to the Cincinnati area but comes home to visit every now and then. This time was for the holidays. We caught up at my studi ...
Maternity Session at the Cleveland Museum of Art
I met Lee and Danielle for their Maternity Session at the Cleveland Museum of Art. It was intended to be our back up location in case the weather was poor but we lucked out and were able to use the atrium for some pictures and make it outside for some shots around the beautiful museum grounds.
We had a great time and since thes ...
