August was a baby boom for Photography by Brea – while the summer is always filled with children and family sessions of chasing energetic toddlers around beaches and the beautiful Metroparks – it’s nice every once in a while to settle down into a calm, quiet newborn session and soak in the sweetness that IS a brand new life.

And this little man… oh my LORD he couldn’t have been more unbelievable.  Did he cry a couple of times? Sure. Did he want to eat?  Of course! What baby boy doesn’t.  And that’s why I give my clients three hours of my time to make sure that we’re not forcing anything with the babies because of time. Because as soon as this little man got what he needed – he settled in so beautifully to his sleepy state and we captured so many amazing photographs to document his first couple weeks into this world.





Some of my favorite moments were during the parents’ down time with the baby. Something so beautiful about watching new parents soak in this new part of their lives…






Thank you so much for welcoming me into your home that was already filled with love – and even more so now with the addition of your new little man.  Looks like the “other” babies of the house kind of like him too.  (Well, almost all of them.  We’ll blame the fact that the third furry baby wasn’t present because of camera shyness!)  Thank you so much and congratulations again on your newest little blessing!  Until next time… cleveland-oh-newborn-photographer-1-12
