April 2017.

What a great spring day we had for Ian's senior pictures.  We took these just a few short days before his graduation.  Some seniors find that they are just super busy in the fall and find spring to be a nice option for getting those senior portraits taken. For Ian, playing football consumed his time in the fall and so this spring session was the perfect option.

Jasper National Park http://kimkozlowski.com/blog/2017/3/jasper-national-park Pyramid Lake. Jasper National Park. Alberta, Canada.   "Evening Storm" | Pyramid Lake | Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada

After our time in Banff, Kootenay and Yoho, it was time to move further north to Jasper National Park. One evening, near sunset, I ventured to Pyramid Lake.  It had been a very stormy day so I wasn't sure I'd get any sunset light at all. Fortunately, a few of the heavy clouds opened up over the mountain letting some of the setting sun through.  It lit up the still waters of the lake beautifully.  

Athabasca Falls. Jasper National Park. Alberta, Canada.

"Might" | Athabasca River and Falls | Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada

Early one morning I stopped to see the Upper Athabasca River thunder down into the canyon at Athabasca Falls. The falls is so powerful it throws off an unbelievable amount of mist making it a challenge to photograph. 

ElkElkAlong the Yellowhead Highway. Jasper National Park. Alberta, Canada.

"Just Browsing" | Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada

The hot springs are a definite "don't miss" in the Canadian Rockies. Banff, Radium and Miette all have fantastic hot springs that feel amazing after a few days on the trail. After a nice soak in the hot springs in Miette one afternoon, we encountered a few elk grazing as we headed back to camp. 

Valley of the Five Lakes. Jasper National Park. Alberta, Canada.

"Transparent" | Valley of the Five Lakes | Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada

The hike to or around the Valley of the Five Lakes is one of the more popular hikes in Jasper.  Although you're bound to see quite a few other people on the trail, the beauty of these lakes is more than worth it.

 

Rainy Lake AnnetteRainy Lake AnnetteLake Annette. Jasper National Park. Alberta, Canada. "Sunshine and Rain" | Lake Annette | Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada

On my final day in Jasper, I headed to Lake Annette at sunrise.  Heavy clouds once again prevented any dramatic sunrises, but as I neared the end of my hike around the lake, it started to rain at the same time a break in the clouds let a little morning sun through.  A rainbow formed over the mountains.  The perfect way to end my time in the Canadian Rockies.

Marble Canyon | Kootenay National Park, British Columbia, Canada

We knew that during our time in Banff National Park, we also wanted to venture to neighboring parks Yoho and Kootenay.

A cloudy or rainy day makes a perfect day to photograph waterfalls and narrow canyons, and this particular rainy day seemed just the right time to venture to Kootenay National Park to enjoy Marble Canyon. The walls of this canyon are beautiful, with layers of white and grey marble coursing through limestone. The turquoise waters of Tokumm Creek rush through the narrow walls in their effort to meet up with the Vermilion River. An easy, short hike with 9 bridges that criss-cross the canyon, let's you explore this unique place.

Takakkaw Falls | Yoho National Park, British Columbia, Canada

Another day's adventure had us once again leaving Alberta and crossing into British Columbia, this time to visit Yoho National Park and stunning Takakkaw Falls. Falling a total of 1,260 ft., including 830 ft. in a single drop, they are one of the highest falls in Canada.  Some gorgeous hiking trails begin in this area as well.

Emerald Lake. Yoho National Park. British Columbia, Canada. Emerald Lake | Yoho National Park, British Columbia, Canada

Emerald Lake is another of Yoho's treasures. We were enjoying a very pleasant hike around Emerald Lake when suddenly the winds that had been blowing all day suddenly subsided and for a few brief moments the lake became mirror still.  We stood in amazement looking at the crystal clear waters reflecting the surrounding mountains and listened as a loon called out.  After only a few moments of stillness, the wind once again resumed and choppy waves again picked up on the lake. The moment had passed, and so we once again resumed our trek around the lake.

Next up...Jasper National Park.

Moraine Lake | Banff National Park http://kimkozlowski.com/blog/2017/2/moraine-lake-banff-national-park Moraine Lake. Banff National Park. Alberta, Canada

"Moraine's Mirror" | Moraine Lake, Banff National Park, Alberta Canada

On our second night in Banff, I set out to scout out the famed Moraine Lake. Heavy rain clouds loomed overhead, and a brisk wind causing chop on the lake made any sunset shots an impossibility, but I made my plans for a sunrise shoot.  

Early the next morning, I made my way in the darkness to the top of the rock pile at the end of the lake. The turquoise waters below were still and mirror like in the darkness. Low clouds drifted past the tops of the rugged peaks surrounding the lake. Behind me, to the east, heavy clouds covered the horizon. It didn't seem likely that the sun would be able to break through at sunrise. Time to settle in and wait.

It is time.  Sunrise.  As I watch the clouds shift, I see an opening in the clouds coming.  The sun comes up over the horizon in just the right spot. For ten glorious minutes, the sun illuminates the tops of the peaks and the clearing storm clouds.  It's almost ridiculous how beautiful it is.  I work quickly knowing the light won't last.  After a few shots of the lake with the open view (above), I take the risk to move to my second location framing the lake with the pines in front.  I manage a few shots and then, as quickly as it began, it is over. The sun is gone, the light goes flat and a light breeze picks up and begins to ripple the lake.  This sunrise, as brief as it is, feels like a gift.

Hiking in Heaven | Banff National Park http://kimkozlowski.com/blog/2017/1/hiking-banff-national-park Emerald Lake. Yoho National Park. British Columbia, Canada. Boom Lake | Banff National Park, Alberta Canada

After that first beautiful sunset at the Vermilion Lakes welcomed us to Banff, we were off and running to pack in as many miles on the trails as we could. With beautiful destinations like Boom Lake, how can you go wrong? 

Our trip to Banff fell during a particularly rainy July (I think I heard some murmurings about record rainfall) but it rarely slowed us down.

An afternoon hiking at Sunshine Meadows is not to be missed.  We hopped the shuttle bus up to the alpine air of the meadow and enjoyed a quiet afternoon with the lakes, wildflowers and stunning views to be found along the trails. The image above shows Rock Isle, Larynx and Grizzly Lakes from Mount Standish as well as an approaching rain storm in the distance.

So many trails take off from the popular Lake Lousie area. It's easy to link a few together to make your own loop. We spent a great day hiking to Lake Agnes and the Beehives, a classic Banff hike. 

Peyto Lake. Banff National Park. Alberta, Canada. Peyto Lake |  Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada

We loved every minute of our time driving along the Icefields Parkway which stretches between Banff and Jasper.  It offers such stunning scenery around every bend as well as a wonderful variety of hikes. Peyto Lake is definitely not to be missed. Its unbelievable turquoise color comes from the glacial rock flour that flows into the lake. 

Next up...an unforgettable morning at Moraine Lake.

Rarely does one get this fortunate on a first night out in a new location.  After a couple of long days of travel, followed by setting up camp, we were finally in Banff National Park. Although it was getting late, I decided to hustle over to the Vermilion Lakes to try to catch the sunset.  I'd done my research on this string of lovely small lakes but had never set foot there and the light was fading fast on this cloudy evening.  It didn't seem likely that I'd be able to scout the location quickly enough to capture much, but at least I'd be ready for the following night.  

Every now and then, things work out in your favor, and this was definitely one of those times. I found this lovely spot at the very end of this string of lakes just in time to catch the setting sun as it managed to get a few rays out from behind the clouds.  What a fantastic way to begin our time in the Canadian Rockies.

I truly enjoy creating custom portrait sessions for all of my clients. The process starts with a pre-session consultation that takes place a few weeks before the session. During the pre-session consultation, we'll talk about the things that make you unique and how we can incorporate these personality traits and interests into your portrait session.  

Brandon's senior portrait session is a great example of this.  We started with an outdoor session to take advantage of this beautiful fall we're enjoying and included Brandon's family members in several of the images.  We then moved to the Novi Ice Arena and Varsity locker room to capture images in a place where he's spent hours competing over the years.

This fall has been just spectacular.  We've had such mild sunny weather and gorgeous color on the trees.  It's been much too nice to be inside creating blog posts, so I'm behind!  But that's OK, we all need to take time to get outside and enjoy some time in nature.  This session with Jack was a real pleasure.  The beautiful day, gorgeous light and his easy going spirit made our time together fly by.

Professional Headshots http://kimkozlowski.com/blog/2016/2/novi-metro-detroit-professional-headshots

I had the pleasure of creating a set of professional headshots for Dr. Kasmikha the other day here in the studio.  She is joining a local dental practice and needed a headshot that worked well with existing headshots already in use on the practice's website.  When creating a set of professional headshots it is always important to consider how the portraits will be used and in this case we created a portrait that suited her well, would help her patients connect with her and at the same time had a background and overall look that worked with a number of existing images on the website.

Is it time to update your professional headshots?  Working with an experienced professional photographer is essential to creating a set of professional headshots that meet your needs, communicate your brand and are of the highest quality.  Be sure the images you use on your website and in your marketing materials truly communicate your message to your clients. 

Contact me today and we'll plan a session to meet your needs.  We'll talk about how the images will be used and ways to communicate your brand through professional photography. Together we'll work out the details for your custom session including the best location, styling and overall look.

Big Beach | Maui, Hawaii

Our time in Hawaii had been amazing. But all too soon, every trip comes to an end.  I decided to spend my last morning in Hawaii on Big Beach listening to the crashing waves and watching the sun begin it's journey again.

The end of every trip is bitter sweet.  So many good memories and experiences stored up to take home, but always some sadness at leaving, so instead of saying goodbye to Hawaii, I've titled this collection A Hui Hou which Hawaiians use to say "goodbye until we meet again".

Road to Hana | Maui, Hawaii

If it's your first trip to Maui, you'll probably find yourself travelling the Road to Hana.  It's a beautiful stretch of winding road that's on everyone's Maui "to do" list.  Along the way you'll find waterfalls, beaches and stunning views.

Another entry on that "to do" list is to watch the sun come up from a top Haleakala Crater.  We had a painfully early start to get to the top in time and temperatures where super cold at the top, but it's always amazing to watch a new day begin.

Hokeo | To Secretly Love |  Kauai'i, Hawaii

Hanalei Bay is quite simply one of the most peaceful and beautiful places you'll ever find on the planet.  If I'm fortunate to make my way back to the islands some day, you'll find me parked right here.

I had only one opportunity to photograph the sunset on Hanalei Bay and things started out rather perfectly.  As the sun was setting, a few clouds started rolling in, just right for a sunset with some spectacular color.  But Mother Nature had something else in mind entirely.  Just moments after the photograph above was taken, rain started in the distance.  You can see it in the photograph below.  And within moments, it was pouring.  So much for the grand finale I thought was in the bag.  But that's landscape photography for you, you never know what surprises are in store.

Dawn on the Na Pali Coast  |  Kauai'i, Hawaii

Our time on Kauai'i was magical.  The island is filled with so much of nature's beauty, particularly the spectacular Na Pali coast.  This image was taken just before dawn.  It was amazing to watch night turn to day as the waves crashed in on this beautiful stretch of coastline. Nearby hiking trails allowed us to spend the day exploring.

So much of Kauai'i is undeveloped that a helicopter ride is the perfect way to see the rugged interior of the island and the true beauty of the coastline. The ride was an experience that we won't soon forget.

Until We Meet Again | Hawaii http://kimkozlowski.com/blog/2015/12/oahu-hawaii

Sunrise Surfer  | Waikiki Beach |  Oahu, Hawaii

Last summer our travels took us to Hawaii.  It almost always takes me a few months to edit my landscape work after a trip.  I need the emotional separation that time provides in order to be a little more objective throughout the editing process. For me every image I create represents a very memorable moment in my life, a very early alarm or maybe a very special sunset, having frozen fingers in the early morning cold or being eaten alive by mosquitos, enjoying the wilderness alone or standing side by side with my daughters, or maybe simply having nature take your breath away. 

However, all these moments that are special for me, don't necessarily always result in images that are worthy.  And so, with a little passing of time, I can edit them a little more objectively. 

That was particularly important for this set of images.  This trip was a celebration of our 20th wedding anniversary, and so family, fun and adventure came before photography for the first time in a very long time.  We swam, surfed, snorkeled, hiked, paddled and soaked up the sun.  It was a trip to remember.

In between all that adventure, I did manage to create a few images to share. I've titled the collection Hawaii: A Hui Hou. Hawaiians use the words "a hui hou" to say "goodbye until we meet again", and it seemed appropriate for a special place we were all reluctant to say goodbye to.  I'm putting together the last few images in the collection, so stay tuned...

The Beaudoin Family | Novi Child and Family Photographer Kim Kozlowski http://kimkozlowski.com/blog/2015/9/novi-child-and-family-photographer-kim-kozlowski August 2015

I just love the outdoor portrait season! Every month, from early spring to late fall, brings something special.  This late August session was filled with lush grasses and gorgeous flowers providing some beautiful backdrops for the Beaudoin family. We had perfect weather, just enough clouds to provide stunning light, and so many options for fabulous shots we kept going till well past sunset.  As we begin to move from summer into fall, I am really looking forward to what this fall brings. If you've been thinking you're overdue for a family portrait, contact me today and we'll get you on the fall schedule.  A Michigan fall never disappoints.

Grand Haven | Michigan http://kimkozlowski.com/blog/2015/8/grand-haven-michigan Grand Haven, Michigan.

The Pier  | Grand Haven State Park  |  Michigan

Summertime means it's time to head to Michigan's Sunset Coast.  You really can't go wrong with any of the many beautiful beaches that stretch along the coast of Lake Michigan. South Haven, Holland, Ludington...so many choices. One of my personal favs is Grand Haven.  The beach is fantastic and there is plenty of ice cream to be found along the boardwalk.  Not to mention the very photogenic pier.

On this particular summer evening we had a beautiful sunset show on the beach at Grand Haven.  To kick things off I decided to line up the setting sun with the Inner Light (see image above).

Grand Haven, Michigan.

Then, I scooted down the beach to position the sun above the Pierhead lighthouse. Once the sun goes below the horizon a lot of folks call it a night. But for me, that's when things really start to get good.  Just after the sun goes below the horizon, the lights come on and the sky starts to work its magic.

The Koneru Family | Novi Child and Family Photographer Kim Kozlowski http://kimkozlowski.com/blog/2015/6/koneru-family-novi-child-and-family-photographer-kim-kozlowski May 2015

What a lovely spring night for a portrait session with the Koneru family.  Such a privilege to be able to photograph three generations of this beautiful family. Mrs. K had contacted me with something special in mind.  These saris had been specially created for a special family event and she wanted to capture her girls in them in a family portrait session.  These images will be an heirloom the family will treasure for a very long time.
