Mother’s Day portraits are here! Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, and there is no better way to celebrate Mama than getting photos of her with her babies. Moms are typically behind the camera, wrangling the kiddos and planning the photoshoot for families. Come to the studio for a relaxing and fun photography session and leave the planning to me.

These sessions are all about the mom’s connection with her babies. (no matter the age!) We will have kisses, snuggles, and all things sweet. Instead of heavily posed photos, I will prompt and gently guide you to have fun and connect with your children. Feel free to incorporate your child’s favorite book or stuffed animal into this session.

Dads…this is the perfect Mother’s Day gift. Moms…go ahead and treat yourself, you deserve it! Please note that this session is Mom & Kiddos only this time. (if you are looking to include the whole family, please book two back-to-back sessions or book a traditional session here)

The $250 session fee includes a 20-minute appointment and a private gallery with print copyrights to print and share as you wish. We will also have print packages available to add on.

I can’t wait to see you soon!



Fall is officially here! When it comes to capturing beautiful family moments, fall portraits are so special. The colors of Northeast Ohio are so gorgeous this time of year, so it is the opportunity to bring your whole family together! Whether you are looking for one of our fall mini session dates or an extended family portrait session, we have you covered.

Understanding the Fall Aesthetic

Capturing the essence of the season

Fall is a season of vibrant colors and cozy vibes; your family’s outfits should reflect that. Embrace the warm tones and earthy colors that embody autumn’s charm. Think rusty oranges, deep burgundies, mustard yellows, and rich browns.

Incorporating autumn-inspired patterns and textures

To elevate your family’s fall looks for fall family portraits, consider incorporating patterns and textures inspired by the season. Choose comfortable materials that keep your family cozy during the photoshoot, such as soft knits, flannels, or brushed cotton. To add depth and visual interest to your outfits, experiment with textures. For instance, pair a cable-knit sweater with corduroy pants, or a silk scarf with a tweed blazer for a touch of sophistication. Prefer something more casual? Think flannel shirts, chunky cable-knit sweaters, and leather boots. These cozy textures add dimension to your outfits and create visual interest, making them picture-perfect.

Planning the Wardrobe for Fall Family Portraits

Setting a color palette

To achieve a cohesive and visually appealing look, consider setting a color palette for your family’s outfits. Instead of matching everyone identically, opt for coordinating colors that work together. This allows each family member to express their individuality while maintaining an overall sense of unity in the photos. Be sure to mix solids with patterns to ensure that the photographs don’t look too busy and the focus can remain on your family.

Dressing for Different Ages and Personalities

Dressing infants and toddlers

When it comes to dressing the youngest members of your family, comfort and flexibility are key. Opt for soft, breathable fabrics that allow them to move freely. Add adorable accessories and props like a cute hat or a plush toy to make the photos even more endearing.

Styling young children and preteens

Finding the right balance between age-appropriate outfits and personal style is crucial for young children and preteens. Let them have a say in their outfits while offering gentle guidance. Incorporate their favorite colors or patterns in subtle ways, like a statement hair bow or a graphic t-shirt under a stylish jacket.

Dressing teenagers and older family members

When dressing teenagers and older family members, aim for a cohesive look across generations while still allowing individuals to express their unique style. Consider using a common color or pattern that ties the outfits together. Emphasize individuality by incorporating different accessories or small details that reflect each person’s personality, without clashing with the overall aesthetic.

Considering Body Types and Complexions

Selecting the right clothing styles for Fall Family Portraits

Flattering cuts and styles are a crucial aspect of dressing your family for fall family portraits. Consider the body shapes of each family member and choose outfits that enhance their features so everyone feels great and confident for their portrait session. For example, empire waistlines for pear-shaped bodies or belted dresses for hourglass figures. Accessorize strategically to enhance their best features and create a polished look. Layering is a great option during the fall season, allowing you to add or remove pieces for a versatile look that suits changing weather conditions.

Complementing different complexions

Take into consideration the varied complexions within your family. Determine whether warm or cool undertones prevail and choose colors accordingly. Warm-toned individuals often look stunning in earthy shades like burnt orange or mustard yellow, while cool undertones tend to complement jewel tones like emerald green or rich plum.

Accessorizing for Added Style

Coordinating accessories

Accessories can elevate your family’s fall outfits from good to great. Choose matching jewelry or accessories that complement the chosen color palette. For instance, consider adding a statement pendant necklace that incorporates the same hues present in the outfits. If you’re looking to add a touch of color, accessorize with scarves, belts, or even socks in complementary shades.

We are so excited to see you soon. If you have specific questions or would like to brainstorm outfits or looks together, please do not hesitate to reach out!

Thank you,



Spring is on the way and our spots are starting to fill up for family sessions! You’ve booked your family portrait session and now have to figure out how to dress your sweet family. I’ve compiled a session guide with tips on what to wear for your family portraits. Please read on for a few of my favorite tips and tricks for family portrait sessions. With a bit of planning, your session will be fun and relaxing.

Summer Family Portrait Session

Where to begin?

The days of “everyone in khakis and a white shirt” are gone. Instead of all matching outfits, choose a palette of coordinating colors that are represented across all of the family’s outfits. I like to start the process by choosing an outfit that Mom feels great in, and then build the style of the rest of the family around that. Choose comfortable outfits that will allow freedom to move and play with your family. Many poses during a session involve holding or carrying your children, so it is important to choose clothing that allows you to do so without wrinkling easily or slipping off of your shoulders, etc.

Your photos should look timeless, so start with one or two neutral shades (think white, cream, gray, or beige), and then add some pops of color. While it is great to embrace colors and small prints as accents, be sure to stay away from large and mixed patterns when possible.

When thinking about what to wear for your family portraits, be sure to consider:

The session location – You don’t want to blend into the background, so consider looking at colors that will stand out against greenery.

The season – Deeper hues for fall/winter, lighter colors for spring/summer. Check out our full family guide for detailed instructions and examples.

Your home decor – Your wall art should fit the room where it is displayed. Think about the finished products that you are envisioning and how you’d like the portraits to be displayed. If your home is filled with all muted tones, perhaps a session with bright and bold colors is not the best choice.

It’s all in the details

Now that you have chosen your clothing for your family portraits, it is time to consider all of the little details.

Layers + Textures

Layers like jackets, cardigans, and vests provide depth. Textures such as knits, lace, and denim add interest. When used together, it’s a winning combination!


Complete your look by adding headbands, jewelry, or a colorful scarf for some of your portraits. It’s a great way to show off your personality, without taking over the focus of the photoshoot.

Hands and nails

Your hands will be holding, hugging, and snuggling your children in many of your photos, so make sure everyone has clean and trimmed nails with no chipped nail polish.
