Rice Family Portraits. Wildwood Metropark. Toledo Ohio Photographer.

Wildwood Metropark was a perfect choice for this summer day. Teresa said that they DID NOT coordinate their outfits, but look how they all chose complimenting neutral tones. The Rice family is very laid back and they preferred not to make their portraits too formal. My goal as a Toledo family photographer is to make my client’s photos as genuine and comfortable as possible. I love to learn about each person’s goals and concerns regarding their session. Learn a little more about the Rice family.

During the session, Ted was about eaten alive by mosquitos but he played it cool and you would never know. Brinley loved exploring the park and walking with her daddy. We got to capture some really cute moments of these four interacting together. Secor Metropark is a place I have not shot at in a while. Since moving back to Sylvania, I am really enjoying exploring this park. It was the perfect location for this family session.

Style Guide for Family Portraits. Toledo Ohio Family Photography.

There are numerous things to consider when thinking about what to wear for your family pictures. Colors, patterns and styles are all part of the, don't mind my pun, picture, but don't just think about the externals, think about your family as a whole and what they are going to feel comfortable standing in front of the camera in. Some people have a hard enough time getting their picture taken and feel totally awkward in front of the lens, but then add to that trying to make them wear clothing that is not their style or color preference and the smiles are not going to be very natural.

Anna and Samuel ranked guest experiences on their wedding day highly. Many choices they made reflected a desire to accommodate their guests' comfort and enjoyment of the event. Samuel assigned a chain of command of coordinators and helpers. Each had specific tasks to ensure the day ran smoothly. Even when things got a little out of sorts, neither Anna nor Samuel let the mishaps disrupt their positive attitudes. This put guests and vendors at ease and allowed all to have a great time.

I am unfortunately out of practice,

I have given you into the hands of my laziness and neglectful nature.

They are unkind masters,

They like to make me forget that good things require attention,

Else good things grow tainted and tarnished.

Lindsay & Terry. Napoleon Ohio Wedding. Emanuel Lutheran Church. Ridgeville Legion.

Lindsay contacted me after buying her wedding dress at Blush A Bridal Boutique in Bowling Green, Ohio. Lee, the owner, happens to pass out my brochure to all of her brides! I met with Lindsay and Terry in downtown Bowling Green at one of my local favorites, Grounds for Thought. Lindsay explained that she and Terry have a little girl and they have been working very hard building a life together. Terry was working an opposite shift to Lindsay and I asked if they ever got to see each other. They both agreed that they do what it takes to make it work! Get to know Lindsay and Terry a little better:

  • How did you meet? We met at a party.
  • How would you describe your personal style? Very laid back.
  • What is the favorite/best date you’ve been on together? We went to Cabo San Lucas in mexico in 2013 for 5 days!
  • Who proposed? How? Terry proposed to me after work. One day I came home to a dark house and when I turned on the lights Terry was down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I said YES!

Can I just say how much I LOVE working with people who are kind and laid back? Terry and Lindsay were amazing to work with. No drama. They rolled with any issue that came up and kept their positive attitudes all day long. Lindsay even chased me out to my car to say goodbye at the end of the night when I couldn't find her. 

The bride and groom shared a first dance. The bride and her father shared a dance. And then, Terry and his sister danced together in memory of their mother who had passed away. There was not a dry eye to be found during that dance. At the end of the song, all of Terry's family and friends gathered around him and his sister in a giant embrace. The love and support shown in that moment was truly overwhelming and beautiful. This is what weddings are about. Love. Commitment. And weathering these storms of life together. 

Terry and Lindsay, it was an honor to document your wedding day. Congratulations!

What is one thing you could never live without? (Ian {boyfriend} says that it was be McDonald's for me haha!) I think it would have to be photos. Photos make it possible for generations to pass along to the next generation an idea of what it was like while they were growing up and they also help you to not forget someone and what they look or looked like. They are amazing little memories of life.

One of the things I loved most about working with these two was the fact that they were so full of joy. The happiness and excitement of the day was very clearly expressed on their faces. The smiles could not have been bigger. Grace and Gelmar just celebrated their one year anniversary and they are an amazing team and so in love!

Honestly, I had no idea what working with a snake would look like. I assumed that I would just let Spooky do her thing and we would hope for the best. She did not disappoint. Nicole was so gentle with Spooky, directing her but never forcing her to do anything she did not want to do. My priority when shooting with animals is to make sure they are treated with respect, in an ethical manner. Spooky's comfort and safety was more important to both of us, than having a successful shoot.

Anva is a very cute place. The decor is fun but relaxing and comfortable. I am a lover of textures and Anva is full of lovely ones to look at and feel. I felt like the whole place spoke to me saying, "just breathe and be". Val is one of the most positive people I have ever met. Every other word out of her mouth was a compliment. I am drawn to people like that because I highly value words of affirmation. What better place to get a self esteem boost than your stylist's chair? Val was very knowledgable about her business and her services. She has her client's well being in mind.

Marquita says, "I think the most remarkable thing about my pack is the fact that everyone of them loves home. I never have to worry about them running away (and that is EXTREMELY uncommon for huskies as a breed). They may get bored and find a way to escape, but the only reason I know they’ve gotten out is because they’re at the door smiling at their accomplishment."

The ceremony took place outside, with the couple exchanging their vows beneath a beautiful tree. It was short and sweet and the couple even shared a mimosa toast. Every aspect of their special day reflected who Jodi and Josh are.  A caricature artist was set up at the reception, for guests to enjoy, and also a photo booth, to document their attendance. The evening was filled with laughter and dancing. I admire couples who want to make their day enjoyable, not only for themselves, but for their guests.

"Family is family, whether it's the one you start out with, the one you end up with, or the family you gain along the way." One of my favorite things about working with families is that I get to see the diversity of what family looks like for each one of my clients. For some, family is just two. For others, family is furry. Some have big families, small families, blended families, single parent families. Some are family by blood, some family by choice. I enjoy celebrating all types of family!

Little did Josh and Alyssa know that their February wedding would not be cold and snow covered. It turned out that on their day, last year, the temperature reached over 60 degrees. I would be tempted to say it was one of the most beautiful days of the year. The sun was shining and everyone looked fabulous!

As a firm believer in Murphy's Law, I'll be the first to admit things can, and will, go wrong. Equipment malfunctions are not rare and miscommunication can cause mix ups. Special moments can happen without warning while a photographer is changing a lens. Having a second shooter means that even if a mishap occurs, there is an extra person working to document your day and keep your images safe.
