An Adorable Pregnancy Announcement in Hudson, Ohio http://www.jennielennonphotography.com/blog/2017/7/an-adorable-pregnancy-announcement-in-hudson-ohio Several years ago, I had the honor of being able to photograph a surprise proposal in Mexico for my very good friends Brian and Megan.  Now I am so excited that they are expecting their first baby, and I was thrilled that they asked me to photograph a pregnancy announcement for them!  From a teeny tiny pair of baby Sperrys to an adorable ultrasound photo, they had some great ideas on how to share the news with their friends and family.  I could not be happier for them- they are going to be the best parents!  Congrats Brian and Megan!

Quick Tips for Organizing Digital Photos http://www.jennielennonphotography.com/blog/2017/5/quick-tips-for-organizing-digital-photos Do you remember your parents having shoe boxes full of unorganized photos- or worse yet, your grandparents having boxes of slides stacked up in their basement?  Years and years of family memories longing for someone to take on the daunting task of organizing them.  Sadly, in the digital age we now live in, this problem has not gone away.  It may have even gotten worse.  

Ask yourself this- when was the last time you did anything with the hundreds of photos on your iPhone?  Printed them?  Transferred them to your computer?  Made sure they are backed up? Professional family portraitsProfessional family portraitsProfessional family portraits by Jennie Lennon Photography, a professional newborn and family portrait photographer in Hudson, Ohio

And those images on your computer- are they organized in a way that allows you to find what you are looking for?  Do you have photos in multiple places on your computer?  Are you hoping they are all magically backed up in "The Cloud" if your computer were to ever crash?

As a professional photographer, you may assume I am great at this- but I am guilty, too.  With two young children and thousands of memories I never want to lose- I am trying to be better.  Here are some ways I am trying to be more organized, and hopefully these tips will help you too.

1. Make one folder on your computer that holds all of your family photos.  No more guessing if those vacation pictures are in iPhoto, some random place on your desktop, or in some hidden subfolder that you don't even know about.

2. Within the main folder, create a folder for each event and label each folder with a date and a description.  Start with the year to ensure that everything stays in order.  Example: 2017-4-2 Grace's 3rd Birthday.  If you are taking photos on a DSLR- name your files this way too.

3. Make sure you are regularly transferring photos from your phone to your computer.  I'm not going to lie, "The Cloud" confuses me.  I am technologically challenged.  I really was just hoping that all my photos on my phone were magically being backed up.  Turns out, they weren't.  Make sure you check!

4. Back everything up. It's not a question of IF your phone or computer will die, it is when.  I back my computer up with an external hard drive and I also store all photos online as well.

5. Print your photos!  I design a professional album of our best photos for each year.  These are the heirlooms I know my children will be fighting over someday.  In fact, I've recently been thinking that I should actually print two copies of each album so that they can each have one.  My 3 year old already LOVES looking at the albums and is always requesting to look at the "Baby Gracie Book."  I hope that many of you will invest in professional portraits and quality albums, but even if you don't- please still print your photos.  Someday (when that CD is as obsolete as a floppy disk) your children will be so glad that you did.

I realize that going back through all of your old photos and trying to organize them is a daunting task.  It is for me, too.  And while I have gotten through a ton of them- I am still not finished.  The best thing you can do is start being more organized going forward, and chip away at the old photos little by little.  I hope these tips help you, and if you have other methods that have helped you keep your digital photos organized, I would love to hear them!

If you are overdue for updated professional family portraits, I would love to help!  I still have some availability this summer and fall, so contact me now to get your session booked :)

Newborn Photography in Sagamore Hills, Ohio {Baby Wyatt} http://www.jennielennonphotography.com/blog/2017/3/newborn-photography-in-sagamore-hills-ohio-baby-wyatt I first had the pleasure of working with this family for Emmett's first birthday shoot last summer, and I was so excited that they chose me to be their newborn photographer as well once Baby Wyatt arrived.  Wyatt was the most perfect baby model for his newborn session and slept like a dream through every pose we did.  I'm not going to lie- sometimes I am nervous about getting a great sibling shot, especially when the siblings are so close together in age.  But Emmett loves his baby brother did a great job posing with him for a photo.  These are some of my favorite newborn portraits to date!   Sagamore Hills Ohio Newborn PhotographySagamore Hills Ohio Newborn PhotographyA beautiful professional newborn portrait of a baby boy sleeping while photographed in his Sagamore Hills, Ohio home Sagamore Hills Ohio photographerSagamore Hills Ohio photographerSagamore Hills Ohio photographer Newborn photographer Sagamore Hills OhioNewborn photographer Sagamore Hills OhioNewborn photographer Sagamore Hills Ohio Professional newborn photographyProfessional newborn photographyProfessional newborn photography Baby photography Sagamore Hills OHBaby photography Sagamore Hills OHBaby photography Sagamore Hills OH Macedonia OH newborn photographerMacedonia OH newborn photographerMacedonia OH newborn photographer Creative newborn photographyCreative newborn photographyCreative newborn photography Professional newborn photographerProfessional newborn photographerA beautiful photo of a newborn baby smiling Family and baby photographer in Sagamore Hills OHFamily and baby photographer in Sagamore Hills OHFamily and baby photographer in Sagamore Hills OH Macedonia and Sagamore Hills OH photographerMacedonia and Sagamore Hills OH photographerMacedonia and Sagamore Hills OH photographer Cleveland newborn photographerCleveland newborn photographerCleveland newborn photographer Baby photographer near Macedonia and Sagamore Hills OHBaby photographer near Macedonia and Sagamore Hills OHBaby photographer near Macedonia and Sagamore Hills OH Professional family and newborn photographyProfessional family and newborn photographyProfessional family and newborn photography

Promoting Happiness Through Family Photos- Advice From Guest Blogger "Self Care Bestie" http://www.jennielennonphotography.com/blog/2017/2/promoting-happiness-through-family-photos--advice-from-guest-blogger-self-care-bestie As much as I know you all love looking at adorable photos of babies... I am so excited to share something different with you today, thanks to my beautiful friend and guest blogger, Cathleen Bearse from Self Care Bestie!  Cathleen's goal in creating her blog is that everyone who visits will leave feeling refreshed, lighthearted, and loved.  She believes that most people need help figuring out how to love the life they live, and she is here to help!  

I asked Cathleen to share some thoughts on the psychological effects of displaying family photos in your home.  As you know, I am a huge advocate of PRINTING those beautiful family portraits you spend so much time, effort, and money creating, and hanging them in your home so that you can enjoy them daily.  Did you know that studies have shown that family portraits can actually boost a child's self esteem?  Children are able to see themselves as a valued and important part of their family unit- learning who they are and how they fit.  How awesome is that?!  And it's not just kids who benefit from those prominently displayed family portraits.  Read on as Cathleen talks about how family photos can increase happiness in your home!

Family photos in your home promote happiness and have positive psychological effects on childrenFamily photos in your home promote happiness and have positive psychological effects on childrenFamily photos in your home promote happiness and have positive psychological effects on children

And without further ado, here is your Self Care Bestie (pictured above with her gorgeous family!):

As a licensed clinical social worker, I have worked with people of all ages who struggle with all sorts of issues from anxiety and depression to marital issues, stress and trauma.  But there's one thing all my clients have in common:  they want to be happier.

I'm convinced if I had a "happy" button I could simply push on behalf of my clients, I would be a billionaire...well, either that or out of a job.

The thing many people don't realize is there are SO many ways to make our days and ultimately our lives happier.  Yet a lot of people have trouble coming up with things they can do to add happiness to their everyday lives.  Why?  Most often it is because when asked to think of things that would make them happy, people typically reply with something along the lines of: "Moving to Hawaii and living on the beach" or "Quitting my job and buying a boat."  I mean, those are great things to aspire to, but they do little to make us feel happier right now, today.

One of the ways I help people come up with ways to add joy to their everyday lives is to ask them questions like these:

When was the last time you laughed so hard you cried?  When was the last time you felt completely relaxed?  When was the last time your heart was filled with genuine joy?  Who were you with?

Inevitably, people name those they are closest to:  family and close friends.  There's something amazing that comes alive in us when we are with people who really know us and really love us.  And while spending quality time with our squad brings us immense happiness, we can also increase our joy simply by reflecting on special time with loved ones, or practicing gratitude for what they add to our lives.  An easy way to do that?  Surround yourself with photos of your nearest and dearest.

As a mom, I know all too well how fast the years pass (even if the days can seem pretty long...ahem, potty training and sleep training!). While it's great to have zillions of photos on your phone, if you really want to add happiness to your day, those photos need to be in a place you will actually see them.  Even scrapbooks and photo albums can be great for this, but let's be honest...on the days you're just trying to make sure everyone has clean underwear on and their lunchbox makes it to school, you're going to be hard-pressed to find time to sit down and flip through those adorable baby books. Full disclosure:  my kids are 6 and 4 and I have yet to make an actual baby book for either of them. But they are currently both wearing clean underwear.  #winning

In the words of Ferris Bueller, "Life moves pretty fast.  If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."  If you have photos of your family that are special to you, for goodness' sake, stop and look around at them once in a while.  Better yet, if those photos are displayed on a beautiful gallery wall in your home, you don't even have to stop.  Perfect for snow days like today, when your kids are chasing each other around the house in said underwear, shouting at the top of their lungs.  On days like this, those beautifully displayed photos will do more than bring you happiness...they just might save a life, know what I mean?

Happy Birthday Anna! A look back at my baby's first year http://www.jennielennonphotography.com/blog/2017/2/annas-first-birthday-cake-smash-photo-session These are the fleeting moments I want to hold in my heart forever.  I can't believe my baby is already one year old!  We had a great celebration that lasted all weekend and involved a massive amount of cake which we are still enjoying and will be defrosting and enjoying for many weeks :)  Her birthday was on a Friday and we celebrated with dinner and a little indoor playground time at Chick-fil-a, followed by cupcakes and presents at home.  Saturday I picked up her official birthday cake and smash cake and did a little photo shoot with her smash cake.  She loved it!  Sunday we had her party and she had a great time seeing lots of family and friends, opening tons of fun presents, and eating MORE CAKE!  I have loved every minute of watching her grow and develop her sweet little personality over the past year.  She has brought so much love and happiness to our family and I am so lucky to be her mama!  Happy Birthday Anna!  Here's a look back on some of my favorite photos of her first year :) Newborn Photography in Macedonia OhioNewborn Photography in Macedonia OhioJennie Lennon's newborn baby photographed in her Macedonia Ohio home on a vintage handmade baby blanket and a bench made from birch logs This is probably my favorite newborn photo I have ever taken.  Not only do I love the baby and think she is adorable, but the blanket she is laying on was handmade by my great grandmother and the birch log bench was handmade by my husband.  So much to love!

Fall Family Photo Session- Macedonia, Ohio Family Photography {The Finlayson Family} http://www.jennielennonphotography.com/blog/2016/12/fall-family-photo-session--macedonia-ohio-family-photography-the-finlayson-family This was one of my favorite sessions of the year, so I am excited to finally get to share it with you!  This family could not be sweeter and their little girl is just so adorable!  I have a daughter her age and she has about a quarter the amount of hair- I am jealous!! :)  We had a gorgeous fall day- perfect for a family portrait session.  After having to reschedule due to rain, we were left with some mud to deal with but luckily my clients were totally laid back and didn't mind.  You kind of have to be flexible when it comes to the crazy Ohio weather ;)  Hudson Springs Park is one of my favorite locations for family photo sessions, and when you look at these pictures you will know why!  I wish there was a way I could show every one of you in person the STUNNING order I got to deliver to this family.  An amazing Heirloom Album, a framed print, Chroma Desk Art, and some gift prints that I know turned out to be well loved Christmas gifts.  That is what I love most about my job- knowing that I am able to not only capture the beautiful moments in my clients' lives, but providing them with heirloom quality products to showcase those images.  Thinking about them being around for decades for the next generation to enjoy always gives me goosebumps!  Any time I try to photograph products the pictures do no justice, so I really hope you all get to see them in person for yourselves some day!  Just beautiful! :)

Holiday Mini Sessions at Suburban Sit http://www.jennielennonphotography.com/blog/2016/12/holiday-mini-sessions-at-suburban-sit This year I was lucky enough to partner with an amazing local business, Suburban Sit, for my holiday mini sessions.  Like me, the owners are longtime residents of Hudson, Ohio and have a passion for supporting small local businesses.  Being able to use their amazingly decorated store for my mini sessions was such a fun collaboration.  Every time I visit the store, I come home with a new treasure- from adorable Christmas decor, to framed beer cap art made by a local artist, to a whole new bedroom set for my daughter (stay tuned on that... I can't wait to show you pictures when it arrives!).  It was also SO nice to not have to stress about the weather, because every time I plan mini sessions it never fails- I always have to worry about rain or snow!  We received some awesome feedback on the photos, and all in all the event was a great success!  Thanks again to the owners and staff at Suburban Sit for hosting us!

A Family Portrait Session at Western Reserve Academy in Hudson, Ohio {The McDowell Family} http://www.jennielennonphotography.com/blog/2016/6/a-family-portrait-session-at-western-reserve-academy-in-hudson-ohio-the-mcdowell-family This is one of my favorite family portrait sessions that I have done in a long time.  The kids were great and so much fun to photograph, and the results are just gorgeous!  This session will also always make me laugh a little.  You would never know by looking at the beautiful pictures, but we were practically swarmed with cicadas.  Live ones, dead ones, flying at our head ones... they were everywhere!!  I am fairly certain that Western Reserve Academy in Hudson was the epicenter of cicadas in 2016.  And I can't say that I will miss them or that I will be sad to be without them for another 17 years!  But I am thankful that the McDowell Family braved it out and smiled through their photos, and you can't even tell how grossed out they were unless I had told you :)  So long cicadas- you have already come and gone but this family will be enjoying their beautiful family photos for at least the next 17 years!

Fostering Love in Hopes of Adoption {Foster Announcement in Kent, Ohio} http://www.jennielennonphotography.com/blog/2016/5/fostering-love-in-hopes-of-adoption-foster-announcement-in-kent-ohio This is probably one of the most creative and fun photo sessions I have had the honor of shooting.  Leslie emailed me and explained that they were in the process of being approved to foster a teenage boy in hopes of later adopting him.  She and her husband Patrick wanted to enjoy the perks of expecting a child and have a photo session to announce his imminent arrival.  Not only are they one of the sweetest couples I have met, but they have a great sense of humor too and wanted to create some humorous images that are a play on pregnancy announcements.  Often children who are in foster care do not have family photos from their childhood, so Leslie and Patrick want their child to have a special keepsake to start out with.  We worked together to come up with some great ideas, and I think the results are just perfect!

Throughout the time I worked with Leslie and Patrick I just kept thinking about how awesome they are for fostering a teenager.  There is an urgent need in Northeast Ohio for foster parents, especially for sibling groups, teenagers, and physically, developmentally, or emotionally challenged children.  There are approximately 22,000 children in foster care in Ohio on any given day with nearly 9,000 new children entering foster care each year.  It takes a very loving and caring couple to open their hearts and their home to one of those children, and I think he is very lucky to be placed with this amazing couple!

Capturing Memories and Creating Heirlooms with Family Photos http://www.jennielennonphotography.com/blog/2016/5/capturing-memories-and-creating-heirlooms-with-family-photos This morning I read a Facebook post where a friend shared an article from Scary Mommy called "The Mom Who Wasn't There: The Ghost In Our Family Photos."  It's one of those articles that makes you think, reevaluate, and check your priorities in life.  The author was making a photo book for her mom's 60th birthday party and after searching through all of their old photo albums realized that there were only a handful of photos that had her mom in them.  "Sixty years of a life full of marriages and children, laughter and loss. She was the most important woman in the world to me, but the photographic evidence of her existence didn’t even exceed the maximum attachment file size of a single email."  My Facebook friend's post had a similar sentiment- her 2nd grader needed a photo of the two of them for a school project and the last one she could find was from the first day of school (and to put into context, we are now approaching the last day of school!).

Now I realize that as a photographer, photos are probably even more important to me than to the average person.  But last night I was watching a story on the news about the awful forest fires that are happening in Canada right now where nearly 80,000 people have been forced to evacuate their homes.  A woman cried as she said they were forced to leave in a instant and abandon their homes and all their belongings and now they had nothing.  So I ask- if there was one thing you could grab (besides, of course, your children and pets), what would it be?  I could venture a guess that it would be your family photo albums.  A lifetime of memories neatly bundled into a handful of books.  Those heirlooms are what your children will be fighting over when they are grown.

As Mother's Day approaches I find myself reading countless sappy articles about the importance of family, appreciating the season you are in (as crazy and exhausting as it may be), and counting your blessings.  And as your photographer, I just want to remind you the importance of two things:

1. Get in front of the camera and be in pictures with your children.  They will so appreciate it later.

2. Print your photos.  Those memories aren't going to be doing anybody any good sitting on a corrupt CD or a crashed hard drive.

I am glad I have taken my own advice and caught up on printing albums of my own family.  I have printed a newborn album for each of my girls and my plan is to print an album for every year going forward.  And I also hire a professional photographer several times a year so that I can be in pictures, too.  I challenge you to do the same, your children will thank you for it!

Harper's First Birthday Photo Session in Solon, Ohio http://www.jennielennonphotography.com/blog/2016/4/harpers-first-birthday-photo-session-in-solon-ohio

First birthday photo shoots are so much fun.  As a mom of two, I know how special of a celebration it is.  Your child has grown from a tiny newborn into an adorable toddler.  They change so much in that first year, and it is truly amazing to remember how they knew NOTHING when they were first born and to think about all the new things they have learned in a relatively short period of time.  And let's be honest, we as parents knew NOTHING either, so our child's first birthday is also a celebration that we were able to keep them alive for a whole year! ;) 

Today on the blog is a throwback to Miss Harper's first birthday photo session at her home in Solon.  I first met her when I photographed her as a newborn, and there's nothing I love more than getting to come back a year later to photograph my clients so that I can see the little people with big personalities that they have turned into.  Harper was perfectly adorable and made some pretty cute portraits to mark the occasion :)

I am looking forward to another great season of outdoor child and family photo sessions this year!

A Sunset Maternity Session in the Cuyahoga Valley http://www.jennielennonphotography.com/blog/2016/4/a-sunset-maternity-session-in-the-cuyahoga-valley I have been working with this family for over two years now and have had the pleasure of photographing them every few months.  I first met them when Lindsay was pregnant with her first baby and we did a gorgeous maternity session in the snow.  Then I had the honor of photographing Milania when she was a newborn and when she was 3, 6, 9, and 12 months.  They came to my fall mini sessions last year and told me they were pregnant again, and I could not be more excited for them!  Milania is a couple months older than my oldest daughter, and it has been really fun each time I see her to get a preview of what Grace is going to be learning next.  There's no greater compliment than having them hire me to capture all of their new baby's milestones.  Lindsay told me "It's a huge investment but we have had a great experience and definitely want to continue that for the next one!" which makes me so happy! 

We had a beautiful spring evening for their maternity session, so we headed to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park where I was able to capture some gorgeous sunset shots.  I absolutely love photographing pregnant women, and I so wish that every one of my newborn clients would also do a maternity session with me! Trust me, I know you are not always feeling your best when you are pregnant, but when your children are all grown up they will be SO glad to have beautiful photos of their pregnant mom to look back at!

Lindsay, you look stunning!  Congratulations to you and Carmelo, I can't wait to meet your baby girl!

It's A Boy! Sagamore Hills, Ohio Gender Reveal Photo Session http://www.jennielennonphotography.com/blog/2016/3/its-a-boy-sagamore-hills-ohio-gender-reveal-photo-session This is a shoot from last fall that I am finally getting a chance to share- I had to make sure to sneak it in before Baby Boy arrives!  I would love to photograph more gender reveals, what a fun way to celebrate such a special time.  The funny thing about this session is that the couple actually hadn't yet found out what they were having, so we photographed both pink and blue ;)  They had a fun party with their family where they cut into a cake to reveal blue frosting and found out they will be blessed with a little baby boy.  And then promptly let me know so that I could edit the baby boy photos :)

Hope you enjoy the photos from this fun shoot- can't wait to meet Baby Boy next month for his newborn session!
