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!

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!
I am the night.
I walk in shadows and I sing in solitude,
My eyes are closed but my ears hear every movement,
I bring rains of starlight and waterfalls of moon beams.
I do not sleep but I shroud the world in a breathing death,
For most, a temporary state of escape.
No Disney princess; I am a warrior queen.
My hair is the color of the tropical sea, hemmed in by a crown of lost life.
My arms wear strength like golden cords, infused with the energy of roaring waves.
My body moves with agility and speed, like the currents of the laughing deep.
My gown shimmers and shifts, as the sun casting a broad arm over a calm horizon.
My tale would push me further and faster, ever moving to explore every ravine of the ocean floor.
Alas, my feet, keep me tethered to the shore.
These photos show our explorations of Waterfront Park where we visited the Fleur de Flea market. We also explored the neighborhood where our accommodations were located, the Old Historic Louisville. We wandered around downtown and ate at Feast BBQ. The last group of photos were from Cave Hill Cemetery, a historic burial ground covering over 300 acres and boasting of such famous occupants as Muhammed Ali and Colonel Sanders.
When I began organizing my first group photo shoot, I planned to invite a variety of models to join us. The main goal for the event was to give each of the photographers an opportunity for practice and an environment in which to be creative. It is so easy, as a business owner, to become caught up in the "work" and forget the "art" that initially drew us to our profession. I decided to facilitate this day to return to the art without the pressure and restrictions that sometimes accompany a paid session.
