This weekend, I was asked to photograph a benefit for Aaron Mazur and his family.  Aaron is currently awaiting his THIRD liver transplant.  Yes, that means that he’s already had one.  And then he had another.  Now he has to have yet another.  Crazy!

I don’t know Aaron.  I don’t know the Mazur family.  I was asked to participate through a friend of a friend of the family…and I’m so glad that I was!  This guy has support.  I mean, it was absolutely AWESOME to see the amount of people who came out for this benefit (the count was in the hundreds).  There was a spaghetti dinner, a silent auction, a bake sale, raffle drawings, a 50/50 raffle, T-shirt sales, a DJ, card-making tables for the kids to make Aaron get-well cards, a guest book and message poster…I’m sure that I’m even forgetting some things.  Wow.  Just Wow.

Here are just a few images from the event.  Please join me in saying a collective prayer for Aaron, his family, his friends, and his supporters!




Toledo and the surrounding areas have many scenic options for your photography session. Alley ways, downtown store fronts, or even an old brick building make for great backgrounds. Or even your local college campus or shopping center.  For example , this client is at the BGSU campus. It is fun to think outside the box!BGSU

MetroparkToledo and surrounding communities provide natural scenery in the many metro parks located in the area. With Wildwood located within the city limits and surrounding parks such as Oak Openings , Pearson, Farnsworth, etc. the possibilities for diverse backgrounds are limitless. In addition to the many parks, Toledo benefits from being situated on the lake shore . This provides us with additional scenic options such as beaches, marinas, and other Lake Erie amenities.

I prefer to work with natural light as much as possible, so whenever possible you should plan for your session to be outdoors. I have met clients in a variety of locations in and around Toledo.  As an example, today I’d like to highlight Historic Downtown Sylvania.  The BIG perk to shooting in Sylvania?  My studio is located right on Main Street.  If the weather is questionable, we can quickly move indoors.  Downtown Sylvania also offers a variety of photo opportunities, from the serene parks to the historical village to the urban scene.  Your session can be as unique as you!
