First "Pin"

at least I think that's what they call it. I have never been a fan of wrestling. It kind of DISGUSTS me. That was until it was MY son. I have to admit I've never actually watched anyone wrestle. If I had maybe I would have liked it, but now I am a huge fan! Those kids get to do what I really want to do (at least once a month). Oh well...for now I will live vicariously through Taylor. I can't wait to see the moves tomorrow at Northwood! Good Luck, Taylor!

Prego Pix

I loved being pregnant! It's such a miracle and it goes wwwaaayyy to fast (although it doesn't seem that way when it's you carrying around a beach ball ). I've been photographing so many belllies lately and the big question all the girls have is "when is the best time to schedule them?"

I usually recommend 7-8 months depending on how you feel. If you'd like to schedule an appointment, give me a call @ 216-973-0156.

Happy Thanksgiving!

not Noodle, not Taylor, not Trevor but me. Unless I have an appointment, session or wedding, I rarely get out of my pajamas. The neighbors seemed really excited to see the new black and white polka dot set from Sam's Club. It's also a great relief I'm sure that I will be covering up with a coat on Noodle's walks ( at least for a few months)

WELL...yesterday I actually did my hair AND wore make-up. Bill was so shocked that he wanted to take my picture. I think he was just hoping that seeing it in print would encourage me to do it more often. Probably not.

Trevor is about to turn 10 years old. Every child in our family has a special 10 year portrait. Trevor's happen to be taken a little early because we were out on a shoot ( he is my new assistant) and I loved this wall. There is also a shot of him showing off his quarterback skills and mowing the lawn at the studio.

Mr. Bones

This is my super silly, crazy cute, sssoooo smart nephew SAM! Aunt Becky loves you :-)

Well, Noodle is no longer a fertile puppy and Trevor is devastated as he wanted "little Noodles" running around. FYI for any of you yet to go through this...when they have your dog "under" they go ahead and trim their nails (since it's so easy, even thought they might not need it). Well, when I picked her up they failed to tell me that they did it AND...they trimmed the back right one WAAYYY too short. When I got out of the van after we got home I noticed little drips of blood on the van seat and thought "it must be from the surgery". I checked her out (it seemed fine), cleaned up the van and plopped myself down in photoshop with her on my left leg. About 10 minutes later someone came to the door and when we got up there was blood everywhere from her poor, little baby paw! Boy was Trevor angry!! After a couple pain pills and tranquilizers she seems fine now. They should definately send the parents home with tranquilizers too if they're going to cause such a mess!!! My favorite jeans, the carpet...
Not only did we go through this but I have been sick all week. Although I was able to reschedule appointments, unfortunately some of the production didn't get done as I had hoped. So if I have told any of you 1 might be 2. If I told you 2 might be 3. If you're getting anxious and haven't heard from me by Monday feel free to give me a call.
I'm looking forward to an awesome wedding at Kelly's Island this weekend. The weather looks great and the couple is awesome! Congratulations, Butch and Anne!
Gotta get back to work!
Have a great weekend!

Well, I have recovered and I'm feelin' free! Trevor and Alex headed off to 4th grade, Noodle and I took a run and I'm ready to tackle photography. For those of you that are waiting patientely for your pictures they should be ready soon!!




As I'm sitting here, tears dilluting my morning cup 'o joe, I am reminiscing the good 'ole days. The picture from the first day of kindergarten was taken by none other than "Ms. A", the best kindergarten teacher EVER from the Kindergarten Village.

In our family we regularly do "highs and lows". That is where, in the evening before we go to bed, we tell each other our "high" of the day and our "low" of the day. Watching Taylor ride his bike down the road on his way to his first day of jr. high was both my "high" and "low" of today. What a bittersweet feeling!! The worst part is that I know, in what feels like a year, he will be heading off to goes TOO FAST!

"Happy birthday to you, you live in a zoo..." Oh, never mind, that's not you that lives in a's me! Hope you have a wonderful day!

Molly & Sean

No...this isn't Molly and Sean. This is Vera and John and they were so much fun trying to make a heart with sparklers at Molly & Sean's wedding last night. They did a great job with the circle!!

Check the Gallery soon for a few more images from the wedding yesterday. It was beautiful! Off Broadway did the flowers and once again they were over the top!! Check out their website:

Chris & Jen Rock!!

We just finished shooting such a fun wedding. Chris and Jen were such good sports! I think if I had asked them to jump into the lake they would have. (Maybe next week, U 2?) Congratulations!

The Last Days of Summer Vacation

I had to run outside and grab a few pix of Trevor jumping his ramp so he would leave me alone to get my work done. On the very last pass, apparently I didn't put the 2nd ramp far enough away which caused him to smash his face into the handle bars (so he said). After the bleeding stopped, his Grandma informed him that he will probably get 2 black eyes.

Can anyone say "Children's Services"??

We're babysitting my nephew today and loving it!!! Check out how adorable he is...

Out of the mouths of babes...

On Thursday I snapped this pix of Trevor, my son, while on my way out of the house to photograph a high school senior in Westlake. I always worry that I am spending too much time on photography since I seem to be working about 12 hours a day this time of year.

Just today when we were having lunch a client called. When I came back to the table Trevor said, "Mom, I'm glad not more people know about you." When I asked him what he meant by that he said, "well, if more people knew about you, you wouldn't be able to take care of us and if less people knew about you, you wouldn't be able to take care of us either."

It's so funny he would say that because I just received an e-mail with a client questioning my prices and asking me to drop them. I can honestly say that we are not well-off and just as Trevor said things are in balance. With the time I put into EVERY client's work, I have to charge what I charge so that I can provide for my family. I know there are cheaper photographers out there but there are also much more expensive photographers out there as well.

I just want to thank everyone of you that have given me the opportunity to document your lives!! I truly appreciate you!

The Blog of Shame

My poor Grandma!! The boys and I gave her this camera for Christmas. I thought it would make a perfect gift for 4 reasons.
1) We are the only Grandkids that never give her a gift at Christmas (for years!).
2) She lost her camera in a flood and I miss the pictures that she took at all of our gatherings.
3) I don't want to take pictures at the family gatherings.
4) She is 87 years old and I really want to spend more time with her. I thought it would push me to get together with her more often. My goal was once a month...I even have her scheduled into my palm pilot on repeat every month.
WELL...These photos were taken on Mother's Day. She has yet to see them. And she won't even see them here since she can't download Micro Media Flash at the "Village".
My poor Grandma is like the kid in the commercials that's stuck diving off the diving board but never gets to see it in print because it's stuck on the camera or in the computer.
I am putting this in print as the "blog of shame" to motivate me. The next time you see me feel free to nag me about getting these 2 and 100 other pictures to my Grandma (unless your name is "Marilyn",you are also in these pictures and you're still bugging me for vacation pix from last year).

The Paintball Mom

Ouch! That just about sums it up! If you love baking in the heat and getting pelted with bullets that leaves welts, this is your game! I always said that if I had to choose between sons and daughters I would pick sons. Well...I think the daughters would be a little less painful!! There were about 40 boys playing today so I was affectionately referred to as "Mom" by all of them...too fun :-)
