Kayden is One!

Seems like only yesterday, I was capturing the birth of my cute little nephew, Kayden. Now, exactly one year later, we get to celebrate his first year of life! 

Happy 1st Birthday Kayden! Of course you would have a CARS themed party, as cars are your father is passionate about.

We had fun having you ride around in your new Lightning McQueen car at Wallace Lake park, in Berea. You are loved, handsome and blessed, my little one. What a great smile. Can't wait to see the young man you will grow into. Your cousins light up when they see you.

Fearless Devotion

Fearless Devotion pakage.jpg

Honored and thrilled at the opportunity of designing the Fearless Devotion for the #Fearless Women's Ministry of Church on the North Coast!

When Pastor Mary approached me with this project, I had several things in mind, but then I thought it best to feature my favorite nature photos, from my favorite place in CLE,  The Cleveland Botanical Garden

This beautiful devotional, features my most favorite photo that I captured, of a water drop on the cover, with a soft touch finish. Each day begins with a topic, scripture, story and prayer, and includes a devotional page, for participation in your daily reading. Each devotion page, with notes to fill in, includes a photo of a beautiful orchid (which are my favorite) a flower or a butterfly from the garden.

Each entry is written by a strong, fearless woman to encourage others. This is certainly a piece I am proud of!

If you are interested in purchasing a devotional for yourself, or as a gift to bless someone with, please feel free to order here

The Big UNO Party!

Baby Elliot turned One, and to celebrate his big first birthday, we threw him a big UNO party! 

Elliots 1st Birthday_-29.jpg

This momma had so much fun desiging and creating all of the decorations, cake and even matching family shirts. Every details of my boys parties well thought out and consistent... I guess party planning is definitely a thing of mine I truly enjoy. 

We enjoyed celebrating our little one and hope that my parties can inspire others. One doesn't have to go all out on decorations, but when you have a vision in mind, it is enjoyable seeing it become reality. 

A special shoutout to our favorite cake shop Three Girls Cake Shoppe for always creating my designs into a delicious birthday cake or smash cake! 



Elliot is UNO!!

Today we celebrate our baby boy Elliot! He turns the big UNO!

Capturing his first birthday, smash cake was so much fun. As a photographer mom, I let him get as messy as he wanted, and here were the results. I think he really enjoyed playing with the frosting. I also designed all the decor, including the banner, cake topper and tshirt. 

Enjoy the cuteness!


Merry Christmas from The Lotts!

2017 has been a great year, lots to be thankful for. Blessed with health, family, friends, and celebrating Baby Eliot's 1st Christmas!  

Merry Christmas from my family to yours. <3 Cheers to a new year!

Little Elves

Look at this cute little family in their Christmas Elf jammies!

Aileen, Josiah and Sophia Deville, These three are so fun and photogenic. The mother and son have the best relationship and kept me laughing the entire session. 

Even their cousin's got in on the pajama party by posing with their Titi Aileen and cousin Siah. I just love them all so much!

Merry Christmas Family!



Stonko Family Christmas!

When I met Mrs. Celia at a Judge Free Mom's event, where we talked all night long, I didn't imagine a new friendship would emerge. Soon i'd be at her kids birthday party and taking their Christmas photos!

The Stonko Family! So thankful for the opportunity to be welcomed into their home and capture their beautiful family. Here are a few of my favorites from the session...

Since Celia originally wanted outdoor winter photos, I let it snow (yes in their living room) to give a fun little element of Christmas winter photos.

Merry Christmas Stonko Family, and a blessed new year! 


Brothers Christmas story time

It's certainly the most wonderful time of the year! My two loves enjoying some Christmas story time. Love seeing these two interact and learn together. With all the snow out here in CLE, they certainly warm my heart. <3 

Christmas 2017 is going to be a blast! Can't wait to see the look on their faces Christmas morning. 

Merry Christmas from the Lott Boys!

Williams Family Blues

Those eyes though...

The Williams Family with those beautiful blue eyes... and Dakota, the prettiest, happiest girl you will meet. She waved at me the first time I met her. Loved capturing this beautiful family during my winter mini sessions, and though it was cold, we had fun with this little beauty! 

What a gorgeous family! Excited to capture more of them soon. 


McGrath Winter snow

The McGraths are a beautiful couple I had the privilege of meeting during my Winter Mini sessions this month. They were also chosen as my winners of a custom Christmas card from Lotts of Designs along with 5 photos from their session. When I chose this lovely couple, I didn't know they were going to use the photos for their card, and it worked out perfectly that I had the chance to officially design their Announcement Christmas card.

They were hoping for snow that day... and well, since I love to make my clients happy, I gave them snow! So thankful that they love their photos and Christmas card and I'm looking forward to capturing more special moments of this growing family. <3

A very Sterby Christmas!

Sterbys Christmas 2017-30.jpg

This beautiful family allowed me the privilege to enter their home and capture this special season in their life. The Sterby's are such a blessing and I can't wait to see this beautiful family continue to grow. You can feel the unconditional love in this home!

Malachi's First Christmas! What a doll. I can't get over how cute and sweet this little guy is. We had fun dressing him up as a sleepy reindeer. <3 

The Christmas jammies were the best, and my favorite moments were just the tender love of a mother for her son, and daddy reading "God gave us Christmas". This was quite a special session. Best way to start out the Holidays!

Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year Matt, Heather & Malachi. <3


Warmest Wishes,

Nick, Jenny & Rheya!

I had the privilege of capturing engagement photos for these two local Veterans, on Veterans Day this past weekend (11/11/17). Nick and Jenny are such a cute couple, and their dog Rheya... well, see for yourself. 

Moving from the beautiful tropical Island of Hawaii to the wavering Cleveland weather, these two came prepared with their winter coats. You never know how cold it will be, but the coats, and dog hat that their puppy Reya wore, made for an adorable outdoor winter photo shoot. 

I still can't get over what a sweet and well behaved puppy Rheya is, and I hope to get more opportunities to capture her cuteness. The love and simplicity of this cute little family is adorable and I am thankful for this opportunity. Can't wait to see their save-the-date Christmas cards. 

Oh... and Happy Birthday Rheya {11/16}!


Keith's 70th birthday, Game of Thrones Party!

I truly enjoy capturing memorable moments, whether its through family portraits, or lifestyle photos, but every once in a while I get invited to do events, where I get to show up to parties and walk around taking pictures. 

Keith's Surprise 70th Birthday, Game of Thrones themed Party was certainly one of my favorite moments this year. The simplicity, yet attention to detail about his favorite show was impressive. I enjoyed capturing his reaction, interaction between friends and family, and all the simply awesome detailed decorations. 

This crown... <3

The cake was a one of the best I've ever seen, the centerpieces were simple yet very fitting, and all the small dragons and and saying from GOT from tied everything together perfectly.

Here are some of my favorite photos of the night. 

Thank you Sullivan Family for allowing me to be a part of this special day and capture lasting memories of such a great celebration.
