Dominick's High School Senior Portraits
A Cheerful Soul

Strongsville High School Senior Portraits Dominick was such a friendly, respectful young man during our late summer portrait session. I never once had to encourage him to smile, as he is just naturally happy, and loved every second of our walking tour of downtown Berea, Baldwin Wallace University and Coe Lake, in addition to Berea Falls. Dominick looked just as enthusiastic and sincere in the last picture as he did in the first picture. Upon...

Gianna's High School Senior Portraits
A Journalistic Approach

Berea-Midpark High School Senior Portraits I often hear from clients how much they prefer candids, but the fact remains that most people are simply not overly comfortable behind a camera, making candids quite challenging. It is my job as a photographer to direct, while my subject looks natural and not robotic, to lighten the mood and encourage fun. In many ways photography can be a psychological approach. However, I did not need this approach...

Chakira and Joshea's Engagement
Crisp Air and Brilliant Backgrounds
Event Date 11/04/2021
Categories Engagements

Berea, Ohio Engagement Pictures I was telling someone the other day how the weather has shifted over the years. As a child, I remember vibrant autumn colors by the second week of October, and often a light snowfall before Halloween. Fast forward, Octobers are getting warmer, and autumn waits until late October, and even early November to be on full display. Such was the case with Chakira and Joshea’s engagement session, on a crisp, but colorful,...

Brooke and Karl's Engagement
A Sentimental Favorite

Autumn Engagement Pictures in Berea, Ohio While conducting some offseason work, I came across great memories of a 2018 engagement session that truly makes me smile, and just had to show some highlights. Brooke and Karl became great friends of mine from Grace Church, Middleburg Hts. That year, we had an exceptionally late autumn, so this session was conducted on November 4th at Berea Falls Scenic Overlook and Coe Lake, packed full of fall colors. I...

Kat and Jason's Engagement
A Toast to October 28th

Engagement Pictures in Berea, Ohio After our initial meeting, I really bonded with Kat and Jason. So, I was excited to spend more time with them during their engagement session at Berea Falls Scenic Overlook and Coe Lake, on a comfortable October day. The fall colors were on full display both on the trees and the ground. I always encourage props, and Kat and Jason brought signage, Jason’s motorcycle, all capping with a champagne pop. I am so...

Katie's High School Senior Portraits
Going Legend in North Ridgeville

North Ridgeville High School Senior Portrait Session I have had the pleasure of befriending Scott and Kristin Barnhart, and photographing their daughter and son in a variety of sports activities for about 12-plus years now, while recently photographing Katie’s high school senior portraits in Berea, Ohio. When I say Katie is a superior athlete, read these many accomplishments: Two-time state champion for OGSO softball, 2015 and 2016. ...

Mallory and Michael's Engagement
Berea, Ohio…Nature’s Hidden Gem
Event Date 07/31/2019
Categories Engagements

Berea, Ohio Engagement Photoshoot I get asked many times about the best photography locations in Northeast Ohio, and without thinking, Berea would be on my top-3 list. For engagement sessions, I love starting at the Berea Falls Overlook. With its old stone train bridge, giant boulders, waterfalls and rapids, it resembles a mountain ravine. Follow that up with Coe Lake, a very clean and accessible park with pathways, bridges, and a spectacular...

Jessica and Tyler's Maternity Session
New Blossoms and a Baby Boy
Event Date 05/05/2019
Location Coe Lake, Berea, Ohio
Categories Family

Coe Lake Maternity Photoshoot When I think back to Jessica and Tyler’s wedding, I remember a warmhearted and fun-loving couple with a wonderful family, and will never forget their energetic and hysterical reception dance floor. What a celebration it was on November 3, 2018. So I was excited to keep the magic going when Jessica and Tyler called me in early spring of 2019 to capture a maternity session in anticipation of their baby boy, Levi....
