Fresh 48 Session Fairview Park Hospital | Cleveland, OH Newborn Photographer

I am so thrilled to show you this Fresh 48 Session which took place in Fairview Hospital. These are my absolute favorite to photograph because to me as a mom of two, those photographs are so, so precious, raw and just overflowing with effortless love!!! 

This little baby girl kept us waiting for her arrival for quite some time. I've been checking my phone eagerly waiting for the text "she's here!". She was most definitely worth the wait! When I photographed this Mom's maternity session, I remember her saying we still have so much to do before she gets here, including move into our new house! Well, she let Mommy and Daddy get ready just in time to move in! When I arrived at the hospital they have been parents for a good 48 hours already and they were so perfect at it! It always amazes me how natural parenting becomes once the baby is born. After all, all a baby needs is love and she has that in abundance! I am so glad I was able to photograph such timeless memories for them and I know these photographs will be treasured forever and will take them back to these moments whenever they look at them in the future.

Than you so much new parents and baby girl Laila for allowing me to photograph one of the best  moments of your life! Your beautiful little girl is so precious and you as parents are already so great! I am so excited for this new chapter in your lives! Your life has just begun and it will be such an awesome journey! I wish you many more wonderful and happy days and I hope I can be there to photograph even more of your amazing new life moments as a family of three!

a baby boy is born, university hospitals | cleveland fresh 48 newborn photographer

Not everyone knows about fresh 48 photography. This particular session took place at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies in Cleveland, Ohio. A Fresh 48 is done in the first 48 hours of a babies life most likely in the hospital. The photographer captures all the details surrounding the new family addition and tries to tell a story of what it was like during the first couple days of the newborn babies life. 

I was so happy to capture these memories for dear friends of mine. I know this new mommy since high school but we really connected in Ursuline College where we both studied nursing. It was so wonderful to see them so happy and completely in love with their adorable son. This couple is usually always happy, fun and full of laughs but this was different and I'm sure they know what I mean. The love you feel for your newborn baby is really indescribable and it's impossible to conceal and this is exactly why I am in love with this type of photography! I am so happy for them and cannot wait to watch this little boy grow! 

It was an honor to capture these memories for a special couple. Thank you guys for allowing me into your first moments of parenthood! Congratulations!

big sister meets little brother | cleveland, ohio fresh 48 newborn photographer

As a photographer, I have many images which are frame worthy and portrait perfect. This image was taken in the hospital when Elena first met her little brother, what we photographers call a fresh 48 session. Yes, I love a nice "look at the camera portrait" but this image is so much more than that. This is such a special memory that would have become a blur if not photographed. This is it guys, this is life! Our beautiful life which changes and evolves so quickly. 

It would be an honor to capture moments like these for you. You may think that there won't be time, that you may be too exhausted, that you can just snap some pictures with your phone. Trust me, I will be quick, I will capture beautiful and extremely special moments and you will be SO glad you booked a fresh 48 photography session! I promise, this is so good!

a little sister is born | cleveland, ohio newborn and sibling photography

Newborn photography is slowly evolving from very posed pictures of the baby to a more natural approach of rather capturing the new family and their new sweet addition. I met this wonderful family from Cleveland Heights back in early November. As a mom of two kids myself, I know capturing photos of our family together is nearly impossible. Therefore I realize hiring a photographer is almost a must! Of course I have higher expectations as well. I really love the way newborn photography has moved away from photos with babies in baskets, decorated with bows and ribbons that almost always look silly and unnatural and even more silly on the walls of your home. Capturing families in a natural setting which more than likely the setting is their home, is so much more beautiful and meaningful! Everyone is more comfortable and relaxed. In return the photos looks pure and raw, full of authentic love between a family and their precious newborn daughter or son. Capturing newborn sibling pictures becomes so much easier and more fun for everyone! I can guarantee you, I will capture many sweet moments between all of you even when life seems crazy and hectic! That's the beauty of it anyways!

mommy and me portraits | cleveland, ohio lifestyle motherhood photographer

Motherhood photography is becoming a growing request amongst mothers. Mommy and me portraits are precious in so many ways! I hope to offer this new portrait session to many Cleveland, Ohio area moms! 

Motherhood. Nothing prepares you enough for this awesome yet extremely demanding job. I will always remember when I looked into my kids eyes for the first time, their first cry. Adoring their little tiny hands while they are nursing. Those late nights seem like eternity but knowing from my firstborn, they quickly pass. The early mornings, I was never an early bird till now! Their full of pure happiness giggles. The cries. The way they look at you with complete trust. Oh and when they finally fall asleep at the end of the day, the way they look so peaceful and angelic. And there are so, so many moments in between. Let me capture memories for you to have forever.
