Cleveland Family Photographer, The Ridenour Family

One of the things about being a family photographer in Cleveland, Ohio is that you only really get a few great months out of the year to enjoy time outdoors. While fall is a popular time for family photos here in Northeast Ohio, I am personally a huge fan of summer!

In the Cleveland area, summer means warmer weather and later sunsets. Which means we have until 9:00 PM to take some amazing sunset photographs of your family mid summer! Kids aren’t in school, and this gives you plenty of time to have dinner, get ready and head out for some time outdoors with me!

The last few years the leaves haven’t been as amazing and colorful here in Cleveland for fall family sessions, I think it’s a bit of the weird weather we’ve had! Later falls, and later springs for that matter, tons of rain and temperatures that fluctuate like crazy! But, the summers always come through for me here in lovely old Cleveland, Ohio for amazing family photos. I love the tall grass, the wildflowers and the seriously killer sunsets we get during this time of year! The last few summers I swear, I’ve seen some of the best sunsets of my life!

Here is the Ridenour family for their summer family outdoor portrait session with me this past June! Originally, Mom had scheduled to have a Motherhood Session with me in the spring, but one of these feisty girls woke up with an eye that was all red and swollen the day of photos! So, we went over a few ideas and options, and settled on switching to an outdoor family photo session once things got a little warmer! I of course am always sad whenever we have to change plans or reschedule, but these photos are SO worth it and I think in the end it all turned out beautifully and we were able to get photos of Mom and her girls together, the girls AND some with Dad too!

Mom and girls dresses were provided by me via the client closet.
