We all go through ups and downs in life. I feel as though I have had my fair share of downs to last me a few decades these past few years. If you know me, you know that I am a very optimistic person – but life seems to have tested my limits lately. Let me catch you up with what’s going on with me: my personal life and my business life….
After 8 years of marriage and bringing in a child into the world together, my husband and I decided it would be best to get a divorce. We just weren’t happy: with each other, with our life, with his job & family, with the curve balls we were thrown when all our parents passed away in a short time from each other. The only 3 things that brought me joy were: our son, our dog and my passion for photography/art. It wasn’t enough! I missed “Yvonne”and it was affecting my health (mental & physical). It was time to cut our losses and go our separate ways and BE HAPPY.
I left the martial home and the 5 acre photo studio. It was pretty painful but it had to be done to make room for happier times and kinder people. I bought a house in Lambertville, MI for my son, dog & myself. We are all settled in and I’m all set up for head shots, babies and boudoir sessions. I am also collaborating with Liberty Farms here in Lambertville as my outdoor studio for families, kids and engagement sessions. Liberty Farms sits on 3 acres and SO darling – I can’t wait for you to see it! It will be my “go to” place for sessions but I am also open to travel to various photo spots for your sessions as well.
I’ve also restructured Photos by Yvonne as an LLC and I hired an office manager to help me handle the day to day office end of the business. Her name is Amy and she’s super fun to be around. She’s smart, funny and SO down to earth! I think she’s a great asset to Photos by Yvonne, LLC!
Introducing Amy and my newly found happy self 🙂

Maddie is a St. Ursula Academy student and is going to be a 2017 graduate. She is caring, laid back, edgy, sarcastic, compassionate, dorky and chill all wrapped up into a beautiful young lady. Maddy enjoys playing water polo and volunteering for the Toledo Area Humane Society. She worked for the Toledo Zoo Teen program and that is where she wanted to set the backdrop for her senior pictures. Maddie wanted to incorporate some pretty cool animals into her photos such as an opossum and a bearded dragon, which definitely got my creative thinking cap on since it is was such an unusual request! She also wanted to incorporate her brother and sister into her photos – so we used the new aquarium at the Toledo Zoo.
One of the things Maddie is most proud of is her mission trip to Nicaragua this past year – she traveled there with an amazing group to help build homes for the poor and she claims it was an experience of a lifetime! I have a feeling that it’s just the beginning of this incredible lady’s legacy!!! She plans to study pre-vet and environmental studies in college and plans to go to medical school to become a vet for exotic animals. I can see her helping & caring for animals in countries all of the world in her future… can’t you?
Maddie: You are such an inspiration and SO beautiful!!! I’m looking forward to seeing more of the fascinating gifts you give this world 🙂

Every now and then, I have the pleasure to photograph an uber cool event. Schedello! Fine Arts and Music Festival at Schedel Gardens is the coolest event I have photographed to date! When I arrived I was greeted with a Classic Corvette, then I came upon glass flowers made out of vintage entertaining ware. Next, I had the pleasure to meet some awesome artists from other states, view their work and later I had to buy some Larry Lee & Back in the Day started off the Music Festival, followed by Urban Jazz Coalition & Annabell Road. The headliner was Martha Reeves & the Vandellas! Wowowowow! She was AMAZING!!!! The Motown Diva performed hits like Heat Wave, Nowehere to Run, and Jimmy Mack. This was the 1st year for the Fine Arts & Music Festival at Schedel Gardens and I seriously hope they continue to put together this awesome festival! The acoustics were amazing, the surroundings were beautiful, and Extra Virgin provided the food – which was awesome!!!
Enjoy the photos! All of the photos are available here to view and purchase: http://photosbyyvonne.zenfolio.com/schedello
Janette Weinstein of Parent Connect was in The Studio for her head shot. She is an awesome parent coach who helped us BIG TIME with our son. I’m a lot calmer when handling the sass of an adorable 5 year old! Every parent can definitely benefit from having Janette’s coaching services. http://www.parentconnectcoaching.com/
