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.

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.
If you observe Ruth and Priya interact for a few minutes, it is clear that they have a really special bond. Priya is definitely a strong personality, and sometimes she buts heads with her momma when she gets told "no" (what kid doesn't?). But Priya is totally smitten with Ruth and she loves her mom so much! The smiles that these two shared while singing songs together were priceless.
The mighty Great Dane is known as one of the largest breeds of dog. The American Kennel Club attributes the Danes with three main character traits. According to AKC, Great Danes are friendly, patient and dependable. You might think of the famous, dopy comic character, Marmaduke, when you think of a great dane. Or maybe you think of the mighty boar hunters as they were first bred to be.
These two were all smiles as we started their engagement session at Wildwood Metropark in Toledo. We picked a perfect day to show off the interesting Toledo weather. We had some snow on the ground, it was raining and very overcast. Such a contrast to their usual sunny Florida! But Ohio is where Grace was born and raised and it was nice to see the two of them experiencing Toledo together.
These photos were taken on a beautiful property just outside of Toledo in Whitehouse, Ohio. We were hoping for a snowy scene, but all we got were gray skies. I like to think that the pine trees still helped to convey the season. I truly enjoyed working with Tessa and Max again! I hope you enjoy their adorable collection of photos!
