Family Pictures in Sunflower Fields // Cleveland Photographers

When Marianne contacted me about doing her family picture in a sunflower field I was excited and a little nervous. I work hard to be as original and creative as I can be with my photography. Family pictures in sunflower fields are extremely popular. I didn't want to be typical or cliché so the challenge was on. I photographed Ryan and Marianne's engagement pictures.

Friday Photography Flashback: Fitness Photo Session in Cleveland

Fitness Photo Session in Cleveland Today's post is a fitness photo session in Cleveland that I did some time ago. To this day, this is one of my favorite photo sessions in Cleveland for a variety of reasons. The first and most important is that the subject, Keri, was a good friend of mine and my next door neighbor for a period of time. She, literally, transformed her body and her life and wanted…

Do You Want to Be a Cheap Suit: The Importance of a Professional Business Portrait

If you met a person with a custom tailored suit, fitted perfectly with shoes that are cleaned and shined, what would your first impression of this person be? Most likely, you would think, “this person has their act together.” Contrast this to someone in a cheap, wrinkled, ill-fitting suit and dirty shoes.
