Anna is One!

So recently, I made a visit to go meet little miss Anna who just celebrated her first birthday in January.  The adorable little munchkin was so full of energy and silly expressions (a photographer’s dream!) that it made it hard to just pick “a few favorites”, but here they are!

Are you taking a photo of cute, ol' me?


Hmmm...not sure what I think of this photo taking.


I suppose it's not so bad if I get to play with you and act silly!


Smiling Anna


Is a "tongue out" like a "thumbs up" when it comes to rating kisses?

Hmm....do I trust the walking, talking kitty toy??


If I could put all my photo subjects in fun hats, I would.


Look at my teeth!


And last but not least, a serious moment with Mr. Pony. (makes me giggle every time I see this!)

 Thank you Galina for letting me spend the morning with you and your gorgeous family!

Last weekend marked the start of the Chinese New Year and beginning of the year of the Tiger.  I had the oppportunity a few weeks back to celebrate it with the Greater Cleveland Family and Children of China (FCC) group.  Here are a few photos of the kids as they performed the lion dance around the Baby Grand Restaurant in hopes to bring good luck into the New Year.

Feed the Lion's tummy with money and you will be sure to have good luck in the new year.

Welcome Baby Collin!

On February 9th, Erin and Aaron welcomed their first born son, little Collin into the world and they honored me with the privilege of letting me stop by their home to take photos of this handsome new addition!  At just 4 days old, baby Collin brought his A-game and gaving me some images of adorable, wrinkly-newborn perfection!  Here are some favorites!

I think Momma's in love!


I "puffy heart" newborn wrinkles! This expression is priceless!


*yawn* It's hard work being this cute!


Nothing says happy baby like a nice warm swaddle!


Baby Collin, snug as a bug in a rug! 🙂


I think Dad's in love too!


I think he's a keeper! haha


Baby Collin told me he's really a Brown's fan, but Shhh. Don't tell his Dad!


All tuckered out after his first photo shoot!

 Aaron & Erin – It was an absolute delight to spend the afternoon with you and sweet newborn son!  Thank you for having me over. 🙂

On December 21st, the Tucci family got an early Christmas present.   At around 4pm that day, they welcomed baby Jillian into the world!  Having known Jillian’s mom Karen since I was a little girl, I was honored when she contacted me to take pictures of the new little girl in her life.    Baby Jillian was an absolute delight to take photos of.  Here are some of my favorites from the day.

A perfect little angel

The secret with this photo is she took a little tinkle on her changing pad right as I snapped this! Shhh... 😉

I think someone already has daddy wrapped around her pinky!

"Whoa! That's a silly face, Daddy!"

Loving her mama!

What a BEAUTIFUL family!

Looking absolutely adorable in her pretty pink tutu!

Perfect little feet!

I'm thinking that they are smitten, what do you think?

 It was a pleasure meeting your beautiful, little girl!
