I’m so excited to have had the opportunity to photograph this darling family again a couple weeks back. This was our third session together (well, third and forth, since this was technically two sessions smooshed into one). I always love spending time with these guys and our time together in the Cuyahoga Valley was no exception. We took a different approach to part of our session this time around and created a more stylized, posed session for beautiful mama, Shayne’s, maternity photos. It was so much fun to help her bring the romantic vision she had for these photos to life. All of the dads during my sessions are amazing, but the way Daniel is always up for anything and didn’t hesitate when it came to bringing Shayne’s vision to life is really special. They both just adore each other and I was so happy to be able to capture a glimpse of their love for them. After the maternity portion of our session was over, we relaxed and all eyes were on little Elijah, who was just about to celebrate his second birthday. We moved from the river over to Indigo Lake nearby so that E could run around and explore the surroundings. I absolutely loved watching him climb up the yellow boarding steps for the train and zip up and down the path around the lake, stopping only to get himself into the most glorious poses ever for me to photograph him. We laughed so much and had such a wonderful time. In just a few short months, these guys will be welcoming a new little lady into their lives, and I can’t wait to see all the marvelous things to come for them. Thank you, Shayne, Daniel, and E for having me out to capture this beautiful time in your lives. I’ll see you in a few months!
