Cleveland family photography: A Summer Evening with the Holder Family

Earlier this summer, I photographed this beautiful family at their home. They hung out in their backyard for a bit, grilling food and listening to music, and then walked to their favorite corner playground. Sometimes, upon arrival, you just know when it’s going to be a good one. When I arrived at their home, Miles Davis was playing on the record player in the garage, Dad was setting up the grill with a cold beer in hand, Mom gave me a huge hug, the kids flashed me wide smiles, and a vibrant late day light and energy took over the home. They were genuine, comfortable, and full of life. Here is their story:

Jo - Beautiful session, Aimee! So glad to see you back where you belong! <3

renee - This is such a beautiful family! Girl looks so much like her mama and the boy like his dad. I see all the trademark emotion and sweetness that is so your style, Aimee. Love this set, and welcome back! xxoo

Kat Williams - This is the most beautiful, inspiring family session I’ve seen in ages. What a sweet spot of happy, lovely people and golden summer light! And that adorable, elderly chihuahua and the vinyl shots are the perfect icing on the cake. Superb!

February Favorites

My 2016 365 Project rolls on. February always feels like a month that I could do without, but we have been very lucky with a mild winter and some really beautiful days. However, I am more than ready for Spring and longer days filled with lingering after dinner light. I had to dig my heels in deep this month to find what inspired me every day and sometimes, it was just that, the every day. Our quiet routines. Life was very quiet this past month, but good, and I’ll happily take that. Here are some February favorites.


I continue to share my 365 on my Instagram account found here. For my photographer friends/readers, I’m also sharing on Flickr. Come find me there! xo

January Favorites

2016 marks the beginning of another Project 365, a commitment to daily shooting. I’ve been sharing my 365 on my Instagram account which is here in an effort to lessen my time on FB, which has been a great breather. Winter, for me, is a time to dive deeper, reflect over the past year’s work, and dig into personal shooting.  I may or may not start sharing on my business Facebook page again. I haven’t decided. I do plan on sharing each month here. Here are a handful of favorites from my daily shooting in January.
