Happy Saturday friends! Hopefully you're staying warm with all this snow we just got! Lola just came in from playing outside and probably will now sleep for 14 hours. She loves the snow and could probably run around for forever in it! :) We always end up luring her back inside with treats. I brought my camera outside with me for a minute and ended up catching these two. Every other photo was just a running blur.
After that, I decided my time outside was done for the day. Now I'm sitting here nice and cozy with a homemade latte! :)
ANYWAYS -- back to the original point and the title of this post which is 'Spijkers Family Photos'. These photos are from a few months ago when one of my oldest friends asked me to take photos of her and her husband and their ADORABLE 3 month old puppy. I love when clients bring pets to their sessions, and Lucy was no exception. She is the CUTEST ever, as you will see in the photos below.
I just realized this kind of turned into a puppy/dog post, but I'm not mad about it! Here are my favorites from their session! :)
Aaaand for my favorite of all...
THAT LITTLE FACE! I mean...come on. Dying over here over all the cuteness!! :D
Once again, hope everyone is staying warm!! Let me know your favorite from this session in the comments! :)
One of the perks of this profession is that it reconnects me with people who I haven't seen in awhile. It was so great seeing Natalie, another sorority sister from my Ohio University days again. Her little family is the cutest! All of the girls did such a great job and were adorable in their coordinating outfits. :) Enjoy a few of my favorites below!
I've known Meggie & Mike since my college days, and it's so fun to now see them as parents. :) We ventured to a new part of Cuyahoga Valley National Park that I hadn't seen before, and discovered a gorgeous waterfall. I was somewhat nervous about navigating these hiking paths with the little ones, but these two were pros! Enjoy a few of my favorites from the session below. :)
I loved visiting Cuyahoga Valley National Park last weekend with the Murphy family! Over the past few months, I've had the chance to explore different areas of this vast park. It is definitely the hidden gem of Northeast Ohio; with 33,000 acres of hiking trails, waterfalls, and gorgeous photo spots! If you haven't been there, or maybe haven't been in awhile, I definitely recommend checking it out. Our session involved bright fall colors, silly faces, and lots of laughs. Enjoy a few of my favorites below! :)
I'm so happy I got to take these photos for the Stratigakos Family. I used to work with Jessica two years ago and miss seeing her every day/gossiping during our lunch hour. ;) So, it was great to be able to get together and capture her and the kiddos. We met at Headlands State Park in Mentor. I had never been before, so it was a treat just getting a chance to see it!
Along with Jessica's family - her cousin's family joined in for the photo shoot. Enjoy some of my favorites below!
These next two shots were right after I told Demetri and Violet to "jump on Mommy, and hug her really hard!" Needless to say, they were happy to cooperate.
