10.22.17 Baird Family

The Baird family asked for golden hour candids of three generations for their family. It was a humid fall day, but we made it work. The oldest grandchild, Arlo, was fascinated by my lens. I’m not sure why, but I love it. I got a few nice shots of him staring directly into the void. Ian, the youngest of the Baird children, was so loving … Continue reading 10.22.17 Baird Family

10.15.17 Cleveland, Ohio

I’ve never really been much of a birthday person. Last year, I took portraits for the Lins then worked Simple Plan at House of Blues. This year, I took Haley downtown to the art museum and such. Grabbed a few portraits along the way. I always like taking portraits when I’m not actually working because I can mess around with editing. I’ve been fucking hard with … Continue reading 10.15.17 Cleveland, Ohio

09.30.17 Matteo – Cleveland

I did Matteo’s portraits around the usual Cleveland spots. His teen angst wanted to be shown in all of them. I delivered just that. As I’m slowly shifting my focus from concert photography to portrait/fashion photography, I’m blessed to know such a talented designer like Matteo. I did all the portraits in color, but made a few copies in black and white. I just love … Continue reading 09.30.17 Matteo – Cleveland

09.16.17 Lake Chautauqua

I was #blessed to be invited to Matteo’s family’s lake house in upstate New York. I’ve never been to Lake Chautauqua and I didn’t realize how big the lake is. Even though it was the last week of boating season, it was still so beautiful out. Somewhere along the way, my camera was passed around. So, enjoy pics of me. \\ Sophie Sand: Twitter | Instagram | Tumblr Continue reading 09.16.17 Lake Chautauqua

09.03.17 CVNP The Ledges

My brother came home for the weekend, so Matteo and I took his sister and my brother out for an afternoon hike. Isn’t he beautiful? I made Seth carry my bag after a while because he’s my brother, that’s what he’s supposed to do. He was cranky that it was “unmanly”. God forbid I threaten his masculinity. \\ Sophie Sand: Twitter | Instagram | Tumblr   Continue reading 09.03.17 CVNP The Ledges

08.18.17 Megan, Julia, Shreya – Cleveland

I did a group senior photo session with Megan, Julia, and Shreya. It was a lot of stress to make sure that their individual photos didn’t all look the same. I’ll start with Megan. We began in University Circle, I was looking for some ~*~city vibes. We were shooting for golden hour at the lake, but missed it by about 5 minutes because 1.) we … Continue reading 08.18.17 Megan, Julia, Shreya – Cleveland

08.12.17 Cleveland, Ohio

Celebrating one of the last weekends of summer, I took Julia and Megan out to the zoo. Pause for some brief stick-and-poke tattoos. One of my favorite memories from this summer has been Aisha giving me my first tattoos. It’s a memory I’ll never forget with one of my dearest friends. Ending this post with a nice hike with Sophie. We drove around for an … Continue reading 08.12.17 Cleveland, Ohio
