• Welcome!

    My name is Jennifer Mott and I am a photographer in the Toledo, Ohio area.  I love to capture memories from sweet new babies to the wedding day you dreamed of as a little girl!  Life moves so fast, it's amazing to watch how much my own three children change all the time.

    Thanks for visiting, and I hope you enjoy my recent sessions! 

Some Very Anticipated Babies – Toledo Newborn Photographer

I know many of you know the story of the Savage family, after an embryo was switched during in vitro fertilization, Carolyn gave birth to a baby belonging to another family.  If you are familiar with the details, check out their web site to read about their amazing story:  http://inconceivablebook.com/

Having done family pictures for them before as well as a maternity shoot with their pregnancy, I followed their story and was so excited to hear that they were expecting twins through their surrogate.  I was even more thrilled to get to meet the girls and see how happy everyone was!  Truly a happy ending…

We did family shots too, but I wasn’t sure if the boys would be so excited to have their pictures online:)

Busy as ever here, with all my mini sessions booked up and the move to the Perrysburg studio done (although I still have tons of organizimg, decorating, and painting ahead!

Perrysburg Bound! Moving the Studio!

I know, it’s been really quiet on the blog for a long while… this time of year has always been my busiest with editing the tail end of the wedding season, working on wedding albums, and lots of sessions set up to catch the gorgeous fall color!  Well, this year, to add to that, I’m in the process of moving my studio from Grand Rapids to Perrysburg!  It’s been a year long process to find the perfect space and I think I have!

I’ve always had a focus on sessions in the comfort of your home, with natural settings, so it only feels appropriate to set up my studio in a home away from home!  I am in love with older homes with all their charm!  I’ll have super cute rooms set up throughout the house , a great little side yard, and the cutest garage doors too!

The house is at 126 West Front Street in Perrysburg, right across the street from the River and just around the corner from downtown and some favorite spots to shoot there!

I have some decorating and final set up to do yet, but it’s definitely functional for shooting in now!  And once I do get it just right, I’ll have an open house.  Watch here and my facebook page for details!  Here’s a quick peek inside…bright and airy with dark hardwood floors, I love it!!  Hope you will too!

A Heavy Heart Today – Toledo Family Photographer

Last fall I took family photos of one of the most love-filled families I have ever met.  As with all the sessions from the busy fall, I hadn’t had a chance to share the images yet.  Today, their as beautiful inside and out mom is laid to rest, I can think of nothing else but how much she loved her children and her husband.  I thought I would share her beauty and the gorgeous sweet children she leaves behind in her memory.  My thoughts are prayers are with her whole family and I’m sure will be for years to come.  I hope you all hug your family and tell them how much you love them constantly…with tears:

Jenn, these are beautiful! The joy and energy in these photos makes it hard to believe she passed. Your photographs of the family will be a lasting memory. I guess we never know the value of a good photo until its all we have left with its memories.

What a gift to her family. So sad that sometimes our happy job has sadness mixed in. I’m sure the family will treasure these beautiful images. Hugs to you.

Jennifer - August 3, 2011 - 9:44 pm

Jennifer, the pictures you took of this family are beautiful. They will always mean so much to this family. I started crying when I saw them, I heard about this woman from a friend earlier today. My heart goes out to them.

Brooke Lauber-Cobb - August 3, 2011 - 9:53 pm

Jennifer – I am so glad you shared these photos today!!!! I am sure the family will forever be looking at them with the most wonderful memories. You captured it perfectly. Thank you for sharing her sweet spirit. May she rest in peace.

Susan Markle - August 4, 2011 - 10:10 am

Oh Jenny, it must have been hard putting together these pictures now. You are so talented to capture the love and happiness of Jessica and her cuties. These pictures made me smile and tear up at the same time.

Angela Gerber - August 12, 2011 - 4:10 pm

Jennifer, what an awesome talent you have to be able to document beautiful pictures for families. My prayers and thoughts go out to this family, and I’m thankful that that they took the time to invest in such beautiful photography.

A Zoo Affair – Toledo Wedding Photographer

I wanted to post just a few preview pictures of this wedding May 29th between Heather and Darrell.  Heather is a friend from my O-I days and I was so excited when she asked me to capture her wedding day!  She is just the sweetest girl and it was wonderful to meet Darrell and see how much they love each other!

I felt so bad for them as they choose the zoo for the outdoor setting, and that day it was not only flooded a bit, but there were storms and even tornado warnings.  But the wonderful zoo staff moved everything inside and it was beautiful in the museum.

Darrell and his dad and brother have a “signature” picture they have to do at every wedding…love it!

Congrats again guys!!  I will have the rest to you as soon as I can:)
