Hi! I'm Naida!

I'm so glad you're here.  

I'm a photographer based in Cleveland, Ohio. 

 I love a really good cup of coffee with a pastry and will chose thrift stores over a mall any day. I take way too many pictures of my son and can usually be caught watching or reading a historical drama. 

Beyond that, I'm mama to the sweetest boy on earth (I'm biased) and wife to my best friend. 

What I love about Photography is the chance to slow the world down - if only for a split second. With very gentle direction, I try my best to capture people, places and things in their natural element by giving subtle cues to evoke emotion.

I put my heart and soul into my work and would love to hear from you!

If you choose me to record your memories, I promise to capture the smallest, most precious details - more emotion, and less posing.

 

I can't wait to meet you.

Good Vibes 

Naida is a professional and an artist. Not only was she more than timely with correspondence and our gallery, she also captured the love my family feels for one another. She even was able to keep our two year old happy while capturing magical pictures. I can’t recommend Naida enough!

Naida is amazing and has such a unique, documentary style. I absolutely adore the loving candid images she captured of myself with my daughters.

I am so thrilled with our maternity & newborn photos. Naida did an amazing job capturing the moments that you want to hold onto forever. Her eye for composition and detail is spot on, I can’t wait to work with her again!

Myself and my family had the pleasure of working with Naida this past weekend all because a couple of friends tagged me on her Instagram Giveaway post and I WON!! I couldn’t be more thankful! Although the weather was dreary and the waves were fierce the photos she captured were absolutely beautiful. She is a kind genuine soul, and is a true talent at what she does. She doesn’t pose you but instead captures the moments as they come naturally. It’s a gift. Looking forward to working with her in the future.

Milkshop Photography’s mini sessions where perfect for our family. With an infant we needed affordable, easy, and quick. Everything turned out perfect and Naida was so great and professional. Our family will definitely have Naida capture us again in the future and we will recommend her to family and friends :)
