Cleveland Photographer: The Duenas Family in Bay Village

Can I just say how much I truly LOVE photographing this family? Some people with big families think that it would be hard to do a photography session or that a photographer may be intimidated to photograph them, but I couldn’t be more opposite! Bring on all the kiddos! Bring on all the chaos! Maybe it’s because I love doing lifestyle photography and even a bit of documentary photography as well and big families always seem to have so many stories to tell. Whatever the reason, I get excited about it!

I first photographed this family during a Fall Mini Session and I am so glad they booked with me again. This evening I had them all to myself (no back to back sessions) and for longer too (yesssss!!!)! Thankful, thankful, thankful. I think it’s evident to see when you look through these images, but they are so fun! Every time I’m around this family I am having a great time as well! Everyone feels they can be them self and they are do so well living in the moment in front of my lens. Not to mention – they are stunning too! Their love, connections, moments, and stories make them so – not just how they look. Families like this are my dream – I just want to photograph you loving on each other, laughing together, playing, snuggling up, and making memories. These make for the most beautiful keepsake photographs and the best time for everyone as well.

Lastly, I feel the need to mention that one of my favorite locations to do a session around Cleveland is AT THE BEACH! I’m so glad we have Lake Erie and beautiful beaches (my go-to’s are in Bay Village (Huntington), Rocky River, and Edgecliff) around Northeast Ohio. If you are interested in a beach session (this summer) please let me know because I think you can see how much I love to do these! Now go enjoy all the beauty that is this family, Huntington Beach in Bay Village, and more below.
