Little Kenzie is turning one this month! Amber, Kenzie's mom, decided to get some photos taken to celebrate Kenzie's birthday and to use on the party invitations. It was a very last minute thing thing, but it worked out perfectly. Amber had to get the photos finished right away so she could order the invites, and somehow we were able to schedule this session for the very next day! I guess she caught me at just the right time!
We agreed to meet at the park in the evening and spend just a few minutes getting some cute shots of Kenzie. Everything went exactly as we planned! The weather was gorgeous, Kenzie looked adorable, and Amber provided a couple fun props! Of course one-year-olds do not always take direction as well as adults, but this little lady did quite well.
Kenzie looked cute as a button in her polka dots and giant bow! She ran around chasing her mom and her brother, hardly ever letting go of her ball. I was kept on my toes trying to anticipate her movements! We tried all the tricks to make her smile and laugh, but she was going to do it when she wanted to do it. Like when she saw a dog! How excited she was! Kenzie loved playing in the grass and very much enjoyed pulling it out of the ground and spreading it all over her blanket. She was happy and having so much fun playing with her family.
Family photography is not always about posed, proper portraits of your whole clan at a get together. Family photography is about documenting moments and milestones. Which is exactly what a one-year session does! This Toledo family photographer wants to be able to capture all your moments!
Please enjoy these photos of lovely Kenzie!
All photos taken by Rebecca Trumbull at Wildwood Metropark in Toledo, Ohio.

Jay and Cassandra were attending the fundraiser and placed the winning bid on my photo session! Jay introduced himself to me and explained they were hoping to have family photos done in the fall as it is such a nice time of year. Jay and Cassandra have three young daughters and were looking forward to updating their family portraits!
Our first stop was Middlegrounds Metropark. Middlegrounds is a fairly new addition to the riverfront in Toledo, combining the urban with the natural. After Middlegrounds, we headed to Adams Street to view some of the amazing murals painted there. We also stopped at the Toledo Lucas County Main Library for a few great shots outside the building. Cameron's session truly displays the diversity that can be found in Downtown Toledo.
It was a pretty piece left over from a gilded age. The young girl's mother had found it in the attic and thought it would look nice in her little bedroom. It hung unobtrusively on the wall waiting for the tot to be tall enough to see into its shiny mercurial depths.
Branding your business might sound like something that just happens. When you start your shop, your service, your product, branding and public image will just fall into place right? Wrong. Branding is something purposeful that every successful business has done. Branding has to do with logos, color schemes, names and aesthetic. But it is even more than that. From the way you speak about your business on your website to the smell your clients associate with your company, everything you do can impact your branding.
Jennifer proposed that we exchange portrait sessions and I just had to say yes! She and her husband, Jeremy, have a spaniel mix named Lucy. Lucy is an important part of their family so had to be included in their photos. My husband and I also brought our dog, Beatrice, who is a mastiff mix. Despite the size difference, Bea and Lucy got along perfectly. They both posed... kind of... and mostly paid attention to our directions. We got many precious shots of both of our little families!
