Cleveland Newborn and Family Lifestyle Session

Let me start off by saying I have always enjoyed my sessions with this family. They are open to having fun, going with the flow, NOT trying to look perfectly at the camera and smile for each image, and they let me do my thing by documenting them. It is truly a joy when I get to do sessions like these! I live for capturing beautiful family moments and when I just get to do it however I see it unfold in front of me is a wonderful thing.

This family had recently moved into their new Cleveland home so I was honored to be able to document some of their earliest memories there. The kids seemed to be well adjusted to the move and were fully ready to have fun! I was able to get some shots of the oldest two in their new bedrooms as well as the whole family in the parents’ bedroom as well. There was so much joy with this family, so much fun and I really appreciate how natural they are in front of my camera.

We had lots of time together so I was able to get the parents together, with each child, the brothers together and so on. That is a huge perk of choosing more time for sessions! Time is more relaxed and laid back without the pressure of trying to get a lot in during a short period. I will also add that the beauty of doing sessions in your home is access to all of your stuff – whatever you may need. This sweet baby had some major spit up on herself and Mom and they were easily able to do an outfit change in the middle of the session.

I’m taking part in a 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 Minneapolis, who’s sharing all about creating a pregnancy memory book!

I am going to warn you that the struggle was very real when I was trying to decide which images to share from this session. There are a lot, but keep in mind the session was longer as well. Scroll through to see wayyyy too many of my favorites from this family newborn lifestyle session in Cleveland!

Thank you so much for taking the time to scroll through this beautiful family’s in-home lifestyle session in Cleveland! I was so happy to document all of these moments in their new home!
