A Summer Maternity Beach Session at the Mentor Headlands with Stephanie & Ryan

While we may not have the ocean, us Ohioans will always have Lake Erie! No, it's not the saltwater and white sand we all enjoy on our vacations, but when it comes to photos I must admit, Lake Erie looks pretty damn good. Especially up at the Headlands beach in Mentor! I swear I've taken photos here that people didn't even know weren't at a real beach! How cool is that? 

I did photos here in the spring for Mother's Day, but I really wanted to make it back during the warmer months before summer ended. So, I did a few sessions here again in August. This was actually my first official night back to work from maternity leave, and while it's a bit of a hike for me from Akron, I'm so glad this was my first night back! I had excellent sessions with fun loving clients who were so relaxed and willing to walk in the water and get wet and pose for great photos.

Stephanie and Ryan are expecting their first little baby next month and I so hope they love their maternity photos as much as I do! If these two are as calm about parenthood as they are about having their photos taken, I think they'll do just fine :)
