Cleveland Family Photography – Holden Arboretum – Henry & Didi

At first, I thought I had arrived early, but I turned to noticed Henry and Didi pulling into a parking spot. It’s been a while since I have seen them and they look as good as always. A few years ago, I was lucky to capture their Cleveland engagement session. In the short time since, so much has changed.

Henry and Didi are now married and have a beautiful little boy. He’s growing so fast, and so are Henry and Didi. Henry is about to embark on the next phase of his career, which will take him out to the Pacific coast. Soon after, Didi and family will follow. So this might be the last I see of this fantastic family. When planning their Cleveland family photography session, we kept coming back to the same idea. The session had to take place at Holden Arboretum and it had to be at sunset. As luck would have it, their family photography session turned out perfectly.

The sun beamed strongly across Holden as we walked through the beautifully manicured gardens. The resulting colors are filled with pastels and bright highlights. More importantly, Henry & Didi’s little boy was so well behaved. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a young boy so calm and relaxed in front of the camera. By the end of the session, we had captured some wonderfully intimate moments between this young family. Below you can find just a few highlight from their family photography session, all captured on gorgeous film.

Lavender & Sage Styled Bridal Shower Photography Published by Showerbelle

I still get excited every time this happens, although I am not sure why. Maybe it’s akin to a child waiting for Christmas, knowing the excite that is just around the corner. I love sharing the wedding work I capture around Cleveland, so press features are always a welcome treat.

Last year, I worked with an amazing team of wedding professionals to capture a Lavender & Sage themed wedding elopement. Set amongst a real lavender farm near Cleveland, the session features some amazing scenery and design concepts. At the time, the team was thrilled to see it featured by another amazing blog.

Seeing that the style shoot also looked like an amazing bridal shower photography, Showerbelle just published the Lavender & Sage shoot as a new feature. I’m thrilled that Showerbelle included our work amongst some stunning work from other wedding professionals. You definitely have to stop by and check out the feature, as well as some of the other work Showerbelle has to show.

Just below you can enjoy a couple highlights from this shoot. Much more can be seen over at Showerbelle. Enjoy!

Food & Culture in New Orleans Published by Entouriste

Some surprises are certainly great surprises. I’ve been waiting patiently for news concerning our most recent publication. Today, the wait is finally over. Highlights from a recent trip to New Orleans focused on food and culture has just been published by Entouriste.com. In case you are unfamiliar with Entouriste.com, its a travel and photography blog with amazing content and insight shared from around the world. This happens to be my third feature on Entouriste.com and one I’m very excited to share. Definitely make the jump over to Entouriste.com to see the full story here.

Below I’ve included some additional highlights from our trip to New Orleans for you to enjoy. I can also offer some great travel tips if you are planning your own NOLA adventure soon. Devote a substantial amount of time to eating and drinking. Be a hedonist for a couple days and accept the associated weight-gain. The food and drink in New Orleans is stellar and unlike anything else around. Eat grilled oysters at Acme, beignets at Cafe du Monde, and have drinks at Cane & Table. Plan to shop a little while you are there. Trashy Diva has a well-appointed selection for smart ladies. Goorin Brothers has just the right hat for any gentlemen.

Also, enjoy the night life. If you view food as I do, like entertainment, then plan a special night out at John Besh’s Restaurant August. Take in tasty rum concoctions at aforementioned Cane & Table, or a live jazz show (followed by burlesque) at Irvin Mayfield’s Jazz Playhouse. In short – eat, drink and live well. The gym will be there when you get home. Enjoy the details below and many more tips at Entouriste.
