CI Photo & Design by Chelsea Irons-Light
I am a Toledo based on-location photographer serving the Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan areas. My sessions are lifestyle-based & loosely posed, and I pride myself on making them a very laid back and even fun experience. This means that during your session, we will also be walking around, joking, playing and laughing to capture photos that are not only beautiful, but also catch real pieces of your life. My goal is to give you photos that show an authentic side of you or your family, that you can cherish forever. My images depict the beauty of each moment, big or small, so, along with the classically posed shots, you can expect images from moments you may not have even noticed happening. Whatever your concern: you feel you aren’t photogenic; photos feel awkward; you’re worried that your kids might act up; you just don’t feel comfortable “posing” – don’t let it stop you. I get it; I’m a wife, mom of 3, and someone with 5 sisters, so I’ve pretty much been around it all. I love to get a beautiful shot of everyone looking and smiling; but I really love catching my clients unaware, looking at each other, laughing, exploring, teasing & snuggling, even more. I work with natural light whenever possible, but will bring along lights to use if weather or location does not have optimal light. All portrait sessions include a personal print release and digital download of final images – portrait sessions include a proofing gallery for choosing your final images with option for adding on additional images. Travel is available upon request; I look forward to hearing from you!
