Welcome baby Orla, Cleveland family photographer

Every once in awhile, I get to spend some time photographing a new baby in her home.  I was so honored to have Orla’s mommy ask me to stop by and document her sweet little.  Orla is Irish for “golden princess, and what a sweet little princess she is!  Snuggling with Orla is Aislinn ( Irish for Dream)  and Nolan . Its obvious that little Orla is the center of lots of love and  cuddles in this house!

Welcome to the world and a family full of love, Baby Orla! You are as gorgeous as your name!

These talented artists performed to a sold out show.  Thank you Ohio Burlesque for the fabulous evening!

MC Ken Schneck rocked the mic with Star wars Trivia and Jokes.

 

 

 

The Tease Awakens is the brain child of Bella Sin, Queen of Burlesque . Bella also heads up the Ohio Burlesque.

Genevieve, Avon Lake Class of 2016, Cleveland Senior Photographer

Its no secret that Genevieve is the most amazing assistant Karen Menyhart Photography has. This year is Genevieve’s senior year.   Genevieve helps with all of the senior shoots we do. Genevieve works every wedding schlepping gear, helping with lighting, and shooting a camera on her own. When It came time to do Genevieve’s senior pics, we knew they had to be different .

We wanted a shoot that said something about her and her passion. Presenting to you dear blog reader, Genevieve’s senior year in working pictures.

I have been documenting Genevieve and her passion for years through my lens. Every shoot she is a light model, or a focus tester, an ice light ninja, or the reflector stuntwomen, and always the punchline of my corny jokes. She faces everything I throw at her with a smile.

During downtime, she’s the creative pose test group. As soon as a shiny new lens  comes out of the box, she’s my go to model.

For every shoot, test run, and candid moments caught this year, I am so grateful and privileged to work with her. I can’t wait to see what she will do with her future through her own lens. I am so proud of my Genevieve, Momma loves you so.

ps- stay tuned for her portrait session in the spring…..
