Baby Evelyn (a Not-so-Newborn Session)

Baby Evelyn is the granddaughter of a sweet friend.  Her family came all the way from Michigan for their session!  (Well, not because I’m anything special to drive that far: they came because their session was a baby shower gift.  But it’s fun to say that they came all the way from Michigan. 😉 )  She had just turned a month old the week they came for a visit.

If you call to book a newborn session, I will suggest we aim for the session to occur between the ages of 4-10 days.  And that’s because it is the time frame when they sleep a lot and their little bodies are still super flexible and easily go into the curly poses that newborn photography is known for.  But even though Evelyn was already a month old, she did a marvelous job.

EvelynEvelynI never get tired of photographing newborn’s tiny features.  Evelyn had lashes for days!  Babies truly are a miracle from God – “fearfully and wonderfully made”!Evelyn

The nursery at Grandma’s house is decorated in shades of teal, cream and brown, so I wanted to incorporate those colors into at least one of the poses.

Thank you to Evelyn’s mommy and daddy for allowing me the privilege of photographing your sweet little family.  She is truly precious!

Christmas Mini Sessions – Now Booking

2016 Christmas Mini Sessions

I know, I know.  It’s not even Halloween yet.  Believe me, I totally get your frustration when Christmas decorations start popping up in stores in October.  I mean, can we have a little Thanksgiving first?  But, after planning our first ever Christmas minis, I realized that I was going to have to announce them early.  All to help you cross holiday cards off your lengthy Christmas To-Do list.  You’re welcome.

I had a some  kids come over this week to model for me.  You guys–this set is so much fun!!!  Your kids are going to have a blast!  And all I have to do is capture the smiles.  (Well, that and keep them from eating the faux snow, but I’m hoping you parents will help out with that part.) 😉Christmas Mini Sessions 2016 with Adrienne Zwart Photography

What’s included?

Your $150 (plus tax) includes a fun 20-minute session in my home studio, 25 custom cards, an 8×10, two 5x7s, and a set of 8 wallets.  You will be selecting your cards from the samples below, which were chosen to complement this set.  You are also welcome to purchase additional sets of cards or prints.

Christmas mini-session FAQs

  • How many kids can be in the picture?

    This set will easily accommodate up to three children. 

  • What ages do you photograph?

    Typically 6 months and up. Babies must be able to sit unassisted on this set (with you very close by, of course. Safety first!).

  • Can mom and dad be in the photo, too?    

     Kids only, this time, please.

  • How many pictures will we have to choose from?

    There are a couple of variables that effect the number of images you will see in your gallery.  The two biggest ones are your child’s personality and time.  That being said, my goal is to have 5 great photos for you to choose from.

  • We just had a baby, can we do a mini-session for our newborn portraits? 

    I adore newborns, but I need a full session to accommodate them.

  • What should we wear?

    This is an outdoor themed session with faux snow as seen in the sample photos above.  I recommend fun boots, hats and scarves to layer over a basic long-sleeved shirt or sweater.  There are lots of outfit ideas on Pinterest and you can check out my family style board there, too.

  • Can we bring our dog?

    As cute as that would be,  our schedule on these mini-session days is too tight with lots of people coming and going.  Please schedule a regular session if you want pet portraits.  Although, I might be persuaded to do an afternoon of dog-only minis if there is enough interest.

Holiday Card Styles

Even though we are calling this Christmas Minis 2016, the set is really versatile and can easily be used for Hanukkah cards as well.  You will be asked to choose a card style when you book your appointment.  Here are a few samples that go really well with our set, but if you don’t see one here that you like, just ask.  I’ve got lots of designs.

Massillon Outdoor Family Photo Session

I am always happy when families come back year after year for portraits–it is such an honor, truly!  This year, little Cassidy is three and a bundle of spunk and energy.  It was so much fun to watch her run and laugh and play!

Zimmerman Family Photos

This makes the third time I’ve had the privilege to photograph the Zimmerman family.  They were some of my very first clients when I opened for business, and so that makes them even more special because I’ve been able to watch the boys grow over the years.  (These boys are the absolute sweetest, by the way.)

Mom chose this lovely location because it is a spot where they spend a lot of time together.  It was such a perfect evening for photos!  Not too hot–which was a miracle for August– and the grounds at the winery were beautiful.

Riley’s at-Home Senior Photo Session

Riley is a fun, energetic, and talented young lady with a gorgeous smile!  She attends Cloverleaf High School where she is active on the cross country and track teams. When we met to discuss what she would like for her senior portrait session, she mentioned that she wanted to incorporate her piano, her medals and her backyard which she loves. So without further ado, I give you a sampling of her at-home senior photo session:

Thank you to Riley and her family for inviting me into their gorgeous home!  Best wishes, Riley, for a successful cross-country and track season and an awesome senior year all around!
