Zimmerman Family Photos

This makes the third time I’ve had the privilege to photograph the Zimmerman family.  They were some of my very first clients when I opened for business, and so that makes them even more special because I’ve been able to watch the boys grow over the years.  (These boys are the absolute sweetest, by the way.)

Mom chose this lovely location because it is a spot where they spend a lot of time together.  It was such a perfect evening for photos!  Not too hot–which was a miracle for August– and the grounds at the winery were beautiful.

Riley’s at-Home Senior Photo Session

Riley is a fun, energetic, and talented young lady with a gorgeous smile!  She attends Cloverleaf High School where she is active on the cross country and track teams. When we met to discuss what she would like for her senior portrait session, she mentioned that she wanted to incorporate her piano, her medals and her backyard which she loves. So without further ado, I give you a sampling of her at-home senior photo session:

Thank you to Riley and her family for inviting me into their gorgeous home!  Best wishes, Riley, for a successful cross-country and track season and an awesome senior year all around!

Outdoor Maternity Photo Session in Akron, Ohio

Expecting mom sitting on blanket in a field

Trish drove down to Akron from Cleveland for her maternity photo session last Tuesday.  We had the most beautiful evening light to work with and she was absolutely glowing!  She is 37 weeks along in these photos, so her baby will be here soon.  But that didn’t stop her from changing into this beautiful pink maxi dress behind half of a cement wall.  (Thanks for being such a great sport, Trish!)

It was fun to focus on just her for the evening!

Baby Mason | Uniontown, OH Newborn Photography

Baby Mason in DaddyBaby Mason was 7 days new when his family came for their newborn portrait session.  His parents had opted to wait and learn their baby’s gender until the day of his birth, so planning this session was a fun challenge.  We had ideas ready for either a girl or a boy baby.

Mason’s middle name is in honor of his Grandpa and Great-Grandpa whose favorite hobby was fishing. His mom told me that if they were having a boy, she would love to incorporate fishing into the baby’s newborn session, somehow.  When I got the “It’s a boy!” message, I was excited to carry out this idea for her.

I sewed the little fishing hat and fish by hand with material I have been hoarding saving. We are fortunate to have lots of old trees out back, and there always seems to be plenty of sticks laying around out there.  Add a little jute twine and I had an instant fishing pole!  Isn’t he cute?!

Gone Fishing - Akron/Canton Ohio Newborn PhotographyI was thrilled that Mason’s big sister Claire wanted to have photos with her baby.  When they arrived for their session, I looked at Mason cuddled up in his carrier and said “Oh, he’s beautiful!” to his mom.  Claire piped up and corrected me.  “No, I’m beautiful.  He’s handsome!”  How right you are, little Miss Claire!
