Baby Tenley – 8 Days Old {Akron, OH Newborn Photography}

Tenley - 8 Day Old Newborn Session by  Adrienne Zwart Photography, newborn photographer in Akron and Canton Ohio

Little Miss Tenley came to see me last May.  She was such a tiny and sweet baby!  How could I have missed sharing her newborn session with you all?  Well, I blame graduation party preparation!  I think when my next child graduates (which is fortunately still three and a half years away) I will take the month of May off.  And maybe the first week of June, too. 😉

But without further delay, here are some of my favorites from Tenley’s newborn photo session.

Since it was spring, I wanted to incorporate some beautiful soft colors into this session.  Most of my props and backdrops are neutral, so adding color with wraps and hats or headbands is really easy.  (I prefer to use the wraps rather than store-purchased clothing which usually a little too big and doesn’t fit well.  I also have some handmade outfits that are perfect for newborns.)Tenley - 8 Day Old Newborn Session by  Adrienne Zwart Photography, newborn photographer in Akron and Canton Ohio

Mallory – Waterloo Class of 2016

Mallory was so excited for her outdoor senior pictures!  And since she wanted to do her hair two different ways, we did two sessions at locations that are special to her.  Quail Hollow and her lovely home.Mallory - Waterloo Class of 2016 - Akron Outdoor Senior Pictures

Announcing Limited Edition Valentine Photo Sessions

Announcing Limited Edition Valentine Themed Photo Sessions by Adrienne Zwart PhotographyI don’t know about you, but I always feel a little gloomy once the Christmas decorations are put away, and it makes me happy to have the Valentine’s Day holiday to look forward to.  Valentine’s Day was always one of my favorite holidays as a child.  I loved all of the hearts and doilies and the cute little cards. Oh! Do art teachers still have kids wrap little squares of tissue paper on their pencil erasers, dip them in glue and make fluffy heart decorations?  That was my favorite! And for some reason, sugar cookie cut-outs just taste better when they are heart-shaped!  Am I right?

When my kids came along, I got to enjoy the fun of Valentine’s Day all over again.  My kids are older now, and I think the days of decorating shoe boxes are sadly behind me.  But I’m not giving up the fun!  I’m just channeling my love for the heart-filled holiday into you, my clients.

Limited Edition Valentine Sessions are coming on January 22 and 23!

So what is a Limited Edition session?  Well, it is a 20-minute session in my home studio area that I have decorated in a specific theme.  In this case, I have outfitted two sets for Valentine’s Day.   Think “short and sweet”.  This is something I’ve been wanting to offer my clients who have younger children that just can’t sit for an hour-long basic session.  Their attention span has limits and this type of session fits that perfectly.

Limited edition sessions (sometimes referred to as mini-sessions) are also perfect when you just want a couple of photos to celebrate an occasion.  Just think how fun it would be for your child to pass out unique Valentines to their classmates!  I am always happy to customize something for you.Pink and Cream Valentine Photo Session in Uniontown, OH by Adrienne Zwart Photography

What to Wear?

Neutrals are perfect for the cream and gold set.  And as you can see from the photos above, soft pink is adorable with the sparkly heart banner.  Any pastels would be pretty, for that matter.  With rustic set,  pretty much anything will work.  But it’s super cute with jeans and a red, white or pink top!

Meet Olivia – Green High School Class of 2016

Olivia has the most gorgeous smile.  It lights up her whole face, and her happy spirit is contagious, I tell you!  I had a blast working with her!

My favorite photo from her senior photo session?  This one! She was posing in her felt hat.  We were trying to do some serious shots and her mom made her giggle about something.  She closed her eyes and broke into that gorgeous smile of hers.  I just love this photo–it speaks to me!

Olivia loves fashion and make-up and this just seems so very “her”.   Fun and stylish and perfectly adorable!

Holiday Fun – I Heart Faces

When I first saw this month’s theme, I thought “Oh, fun!  I’m sure I have a photo from one of the holidays to enter.”  Then I started opening my photo files and I realized that I have not been very good about taking out the camera with my own family.  I have decided to tell myself that it’s because I was just so present in the moment that I didn’t think to grab the camera.  I hope that’s what it was.  I hope I wasn’t playing Candy Crush or checking Instagram.  More likely, I was relying on my iPhone camera so I didn’t have to lug around the big one.  Whatever.  I need to do better this holiday season.

I do have one of Ethan dressed up for Halloween as a soldier from Call of Duty.  Missing a shoe. It’s a good shot for the scrapbook, I guess, but not really photo-challenge-worthy.

This morning I decided to check the images from the day we decorated the tree last Christmas.  Well, there’s a whole lot of silliness going on in all of the shots.  Most of them were crooked or blurry because I was laughing so hard at their dancing and silly faces.  Some of them, like this photo below, one kid is focusing on the task.  The other is very clearly determined to “ruin” the shot with his silliness.  There’s not a single “pretty” photo in the bunch.  (Except for the cat sleeping under the tree after they were all done.  That won’t work for this challenge since the photo has to have people faces in it.)  But this IS an authentic Zwart family holiday moment.  Full of fun. Full of memories.  Most definitely holiday.

Christmas, Easter, Valentines Day, Halloween–What do holidays look like at your house?  The Holiday Fun photo challenge at I Heart Faces ends tonight, but if you hurry, you still have time to enter.

This is beautiful because it is real! I never wantbto take real pictures on the holidays since I am usually sick of editing by the time they roll around. I hope you have a great weekend, Adrienne.

Kara Abbey - October 9, 2015 - 6:41 pm

I love it! It’s so authentic & genuine & REAL – sometimes those photos are the best because they tell the truest story 🙂

Kelly Sturzenegger Turnbull - October 14, 2015 - 4:48 pm

What a great capture. I love these kind of moments!
