Thanks for visiting my website! My name is Z Kermani, and I'm a lifestyle photographer specializing in children's photography. "Lifestyle" photography means that I spend less time posing people and more time watching for and photographing the characteristics, relationships, interactions, and emotions that make your child, your family, or your relationship unique.
I came to professional photography fairly late in my career path(s). I was 40 years old, had a PhD in American Religious History from Harvard University, and was working part time as an adjunct college professor and full time as an editor when I realized that the thing that made me happiest was helping people make memories. Having the opportunity to witness and document some of the happiest moments in people's lives is the best job I've ever had and the best way I can think of to make myself (and the people I photograph) a tiny bit immortal. :)
Random things about me: I love coffee, rain, and sad alt-country songs. My five-year-old son Hank is my favorite photo subject and the funniest person I know. I lived in San Francisco & Sonoma County for 10 years, Boston/Cambridge for 5 years, Long Beach, CA for one year, and then moved back to Youngstown, Ohio, where I have the most amazing community of friends & extended family anyone could ask for. They make me feel lucky every single day. My husband Dev has been a stay-at-home dad for 5 years, giving me plenty of time to work my “real” jobs and get my photo business rolling!
I am primarily located in the Youngstown, Ohio area, but I'll travel about an hour in any direction for photo shoots. I also book a limited number of photo sessions throughout the year in Columbus, OH and during the summer in and around Charlotte, NC; Gainesville, FL; and Daytona Beach, FL.
