Mary is heading off to Capital University in just a few short weeks! She will be earning her degree in social work and art therapy :) Which I KNOW she will be amazing at because she is one of the sweetest girls I've ever met ♥ I photographed Mary's senior photos last fall and she had so much fun she came back for more ;) The first go around we had a ton more serious images (which were awesome) so this time we decided to focus on the happiness she just naturally has glowing from within.
Mary have an amazing first year at college making new friends and memories! You're going to have a blast ♥
Meet Dallas, the last of my student representatives! I met Dallas, his mom and girlfriend at his high school to take pictures of him representing his favorite sport, wrestling. After experiencing the boys locker room (let's just say it's definitely different than a girls locker room) and trying to figure out how to turn the lights out in the gym we headed out in the gloomy November weather to the football field. Dallas and his girlfriend are so stinkin' cute and photogenic I could take pictures of them all day long :) They showed me downtown Wapak and I'm totally in love with it's charm. Dallas thanks for being my rep and a breeze to photograph!
Mary is not only one of my student representatives but also my neighbor! We had a really cloudy day for her picture. You never know what you are going to get in Ohio in the fall so we went with it. I just want to say that I LOVE the contrast of her porcelain skin and her dark hair! It is so dramatic and beautiful! It was a little damp from rain and when I had her sit on the ground instead of a blanket we discovered a bit of a mud problem :( Then I had her shimmy over a fence and during the process she got something all over the front of her jeans! I felt so bad! Thankfully we were close to home so we made a little pit stop. I had an awesome time chatting away with her in the car in between locations, I truly enjoy getting to know my clients!
Savannah is one of my student representatives. She has a sparkling personality to match her beauty and is super motivated. This girl is working 2 jobs while finishing her senior year! I had a great time exploring downtown with her and I think her pictures are stunning! She was so sweet and gave me some of the best compliments ♥ Let me tell you folks, your words of affirmation are more valuable to me then any physical payment. Thank you Savannah for warming my heart with your kind words and giving me such a beautiful canvas to work with!
This is Alexis. She is a senior at Liberty-Benton. What an awesome girl! Both her parents came to her session so I put them to work as my assistants :) they did a wonderful job keeping track of my keys and phone, as well as holding the reflector. Thanks guys!! I will lay my stuff down and walk away and get caught up in my creative flow and don’t realize it till I don’t remember where they are! I was REALLY forgetful with my stuff that day. Alexis claimed she couldn’t do a serious face…I’ll let you be the judge :)
Meet Logan, one of my student representatives! I know you won’t believe this but…he’s a football player! Just kidding, I think anyone that looks at him would guess that! :) Pink isn't a color you think of when imaging a big tough football player, but Logan’s family has been touched by breast cancer, so they are big about breast cancer awareness, and I think that is REALLY cool! We started out his shoot exploring the family land which is full of country goodies. We walked through a horse pasture for some photos and with me prancing around trying to doge horse piles, and constantly looking over my shoulder to make sure the horses were still eating in the barn and not coming to visit me, I bet I looked like a real city slicker. (I know I've mentioned in other blogs that I’m allergic to anything with fur…ya, horses are the top of that list making my eyes swell shut and I can’t breathe…so I have an excuse people lol) All is well and I came out unscathed. Logan was game for anything I asked him and light on his toes. He was climbing wiggly gates, jumping over the pretty foliage in front of a pile of wood, and he even shimmied up the football goal post (his idea…not mine). I had to turn around for the goal post I thought he was going to break his neck!! I had a lot of fun with Logan and his mom and he is a very nice young man. Good luck your senior year Logan, I hope it is AWESOME!
