Food before photos.  On the rare occasion a session falls during mealtime, you better believe I am coming with food for you!  Moms and dads of newborns have enough on their plates (especially if there are other kids in the house), and they are always the last to eat!  “Full photographs well,” as I always… Read More

Elyena

August 23, 2017

Elyena’s older brother, Thomas, spent a good deal of time in the NICU after his birth (See Thomas’ NICU session HERE).  Elyena decided she wanted to see what all the NICU hype was about and spent some time with extra care as well.  Thankfully, this punkin’ pants had a much shorter stay and soon made her… Read More

Few things bring me more joy in this business than capturing images for those who are fellow picture lovers like myself…buuuuut are always the ones BEHIND the camera.  (That is my life, people!)  Michelle and I have that photographer eye that you can NEVER seem to turn off.  We constantly see beautiful moments worthy of… Read More

T.J. and Michelle found me through a March of Dimes social media auction, but the ease at which we hit it off instantly made them feel like they have been part of the SimplyTold family for years!  Within minutes of stepping into their home, they felt like longtime friends and we had a comfort level that made me… Read More

Davis | 8-Months | Milestone Session

May 01, 2017

A short and sweet backyard Milestone Session to show how much Davis is growing and changing!  The stool with his name on it is one of his FAVORITE toys and it was clear during this session that Davis is looking more and more like his big brother!  Seeing how much my tiny clients grow and change in… Read More

Alejandro

March 30, 2017

I kid you not.  The night before these pictures were taken, I saw Alejandro wearing the outfit I first photographed his big brother, Rafa, in when Rafa was almost 10 months old.  10 MONTHS.  Alejandro?  Just turned 1 month.  The picture here of Rafa holding Alejandro looks like a toddler holding a toddler!  Heehee.  Beeeeg boy! We… Read More

Penelope

March 15, 2017

Newborn sessions with older siblings in the mix offer a different dynamic than having only one tiny burrito in the house.  Big siblings, Evan and Rosie, desired to be right where the action was and present for all of our time together.  Even during their “breaks” where it was Penelope’s turn for the spotlight, big bro and big sis had snacktime right… Read More

Aidan | 11 Days New | Akron Children’s Hospital NICU

March 10, 2017

Sweetie pie, Aidan, is getting stronger by the day and nearing the end of his NICU stay at Akron Children’s Hospital.  His two big sisters, Aubrey and Junia, have been waiting almost two weeks to meet their new baby brother.  FaceTime sessions with brother have held them over somewhat, but you can tell they are itching… Read More

Cole | 3 Weeks New

December 24, 2016

Babies just make the stresses of life melt away, am I right?!  If you are holding a baby and your day is not instantly a bit brighter, there is no hope for you.  Ha!  When I arrived and Robin was finishing up getting ready, I felt it was my *duty* to snuggle baby Cole while we waited.… Read More

Rocco | 12 Days New

October 31, 2016

I walked through their side garage door and was quickly greeted by an eager Adriana…Rocco’s big sister.  It is always fun for me to “feel out the siblings.”  You know.  See how they are *adjusting* to the new arrival without Mom or Dad listening in.  I asked her, “So.  What do you think of your new… Read More
