Christmas Portrait Marathon Session

Looking to get Christmas pictures done? We are going to do a marathon session of Christmas pictures on Sunday, November 18th. The sessions will be scheduled in 15 minute blocks and will be done on a snowy tree background. This session marathon is meant to just be a quick professional picture of your family, your kids or even your pets that you can send in Christmas cards. We have many different Christmas card styles to choose from or you can just purchase prints to include in your own cards.

The session fee is $25 regardless of how many people you have and includes your 15 minute session. Greeting cards are available for $37 for 20 cards and includes overnight shipping directly to you so you don't have to come back in and pick them up. If you would prefer to purchase prints to include in your own greeting cards, 4x6 prints will be available for $35 for 20 and 5x7 prints will be $70 for 20. All print package pricing will include overnight shipping. These print prices are a significant discount from our retail price, so don't miss out on this special!

Sunday, November 18, 2007 from 12pm-5pm.

To reserve your session, call us today at (330) 753-8703 or drop us an e-mail at and let us know what times would work best for you. Since available spots are limited, a non-refundable deposit of the $25 session fee is required to hold your session time.

Giving Costumes their own Post

So I posted about my love of Fall, but I also can't help but be a proud Mom and share my boys in their Halloween costumes.

Ian, my 4 year old, decided that he was going to be Buzz Lightyear this year. Thank goodness! (We had to talk him into NOT being Clifford the Big Red Dog for the 3rd year in a row.)
Christian, my 1 year old, didn't really have a choice and didn't care what we made him. I found the cutest Frog costume, so that was his this year.Hope you enjoy the pictures!

PS: Christian didn't last long in his costume and the only pictures I have of him in it are from Boo at the Zoo. Ian, on the other hand, would live in his if I let him. (In fact, he wore it to Wal-Mart last night. Oh well...pick your battles! LOL)

I love Fall!!!

Fall is my favorite season of the year. The changing of the leaves, the return to crisp, cool weather and Halloween! Now that I have kids, Halloween is a lot more fun. We have always had the tradition of going to get pumpkins and then carving them as a family. (Which essentially means Shan and I carve the pumpkins, Ian runs around like a wild man continually asking if we are done yet, and Christian trying to to get in the pumpkin when my back is turned and proceeding to melt down in tears when I take him away from it. LOL

Just thought I would share some pictures of my boys and our pumpkins. I just shoot these on my little point and shoot camera since it is faster and easier when I am chasing the boys, but I think it does an okay job.

Lynsey's Newborn Pictures!

Many of you might remember that I did a Prelude to a Life session for the Deidrick Family back in August. After a bout with illness, I was finally able to do Lynsey's Newborn Pictures! She is such a happy baby! I couldn't believe how smiley she was at only 1 month old! Anyway, enjoy this little cutie!

Congratulations Scott and Alyssa!

Scott and Alyssa were married at Manakiki in Willoughby Hills on October 14th. They had a beautiful ketubah ceremony that was also very emotional. It was followed by a traditional Jewish ceremony under a beautiful chuppah. They were so sweet and wonderful to work with. And Manakiki was a beautiful location.

Congratulations Warren and Christine!

Warren and Christine were married at Zion Lutheran Church in Doylestown on October 13th. We took pictures at Memorial Park in Wadsworth and the reception was at The Eagles in Wadsworth. The weather was beautiful and I couldn't have asked for better people to work with. Christine and Warren were so warm and friendly that I felt like a part of the family. Their family and friends were a blast to be around and I felt very lucky that they chose me to capture their day.

Congratulations Meredith and Anthony!

Meredith and Anthony were married at the Cleveland Yachting Club in Rocky River on October 6th. The wedding was very beautiful and the weather (although unseasonably hot!) was beautiful as well! I also had the privilege of riding with Meredith and her Dad, Al, in a vintage Rolls Royce! (My first ride in a Rolls!)
