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!

Most of the time I am shooting for my job. I take portraits or I am documenting a commercial business. While all of my paid shoots involve my personal creativity, there are definitely expectations to get certain poses, light styles, a specific look. I am very happy to accommodate all of these things and often I also get to play a little for myself, but there is something truly refreshing about creating something just for yourself. No expectations except your own.
Autumn is nearly upon us. I have seen memes flooding the internet, counting the days to cooler weather, crunchy leaves, trick-or-treat, and, of course, the return of pumpkin spice EVERYTHING. People in the midwest really love the Fall!
I am the day, the sun, the light,
I am the giver of life,
My eyes burn with bright passion,
And my skin glows with great love.
I always ask my clients how they feel in front of the camera before I start a photography shoot. Are you nervous? Are you comfortable? This helps me to know how to lead their session and how to help them enjoy their experience.
I asked Emily how they were preparing Maci for the baby and she said, "We let her sniff the baby things and play with the things we will be using for her and leaving them out for her to get comfortable around". It sounds like they have a good plan to make the transition comfortable for everyone!
We are glad to see Emily and Damon happy, with a healthy baby on the way! Best of luck to you both in this new adventure! Enjoy these photos from their Maternity Session at Providence Park in Grand Rapids, Ohio!
