Cleveland Lifestyle Photographer: The Breckbill Family

I was so excited to get to photograph this family, as we have mutual close friends and I have always heard such wonderful things about them. They are also my first family to photography that had TWIN babies, which made it super fun as well! I loved that they wanted a lifestyle photography session and that they were in Hudson, not too far from Cleveland. They are actually doing cross cultural work overseas, but when Covid hit they came back to the Cleveland area (home away from home) for what they thought would be shorter, but ended up being quite longer. This beautiful family has been staying here so I was able to basically do a backyard session for them, which when this gorgeous space is your backyard, became extra special!

I loved that this family wanted a genuine, loving, and fun photography session – which is the goal of all of my family, couple, and newborn sessions! I think when you scroll through the images you’ll see that those words definitely define them as well. We opted for a sunrise session as most youngsters are better in the morning than the late golden hour times during the summer. It worked out really well and we had such beautiful skies for their session too!

I’m taking part in another fun blog circle with some photographer friends of mine. We’re linking to each other’s posts, so you can check out what they’re up to. This month, I’m linking to a fabulous photographer in San Diego, who’s sharing images and info about her beautiful Fatherhood Photo Sessions!

It was such an honor capturing these fun and sweet moments for this family. Now here is my favorite part! Scroll down to see some of my favorite images from their session OR you can also watch the slideshow I made (above) of some of my favorites as well!

Thank you so much for taking the time to look through these! I always have the hardest time choosing favorites!
