Erin is a senior at Oberlin High School. She is also literally the tiniest girl I think I have ever seen.

Alyssa's Oberlin High Senior Session

September 10, 2009 | Seniors

Alyssa is amazing. She is this pint-sized girl who just believes in herself and it really shines through. She is gorgeous, no doubt, but she has a whole lot more going for her that looks alone. I had a great time getting to know her and capturing some incredible images of this important time in her life. Alyssa wanted to start her session at Cascade Park in Elyria because it holds a special place in her heart because it has been an important place for her family for years. We found all kinds of great spots there and then headed back to my studio. On the way back to town, I suggested we stop in a field and do some softball shots.

Rachel's Grad Session

August 19, 2009 | Seniors

Rachel is a recent graduate of Oberlin College and she is leaving town soon to move off into the world. She contacted me because she had never had a senior portrait taken in highschool because her choices had been the traditional cheesy background shots that you see at the generic photography studios. That hadn't appealed to her at all. But Rachel is smart enough to realize how important it is to document yourself at a young age and what better way than to commemorate the important moment of graduating from college.

Hannah J.'s Senior Session

May 12, 2009 | Seniors

I was happy to create images of Hannah. She is fun and free-spirited and has a great sense of style. She wanted something classic, but was willing to play around with some of my ideas. I think we hit it out of the park. The images I got in my studio (which was my first official session in my new space, btw) are gorgeous and remind me of Brigette Bardot on the one hand, and Doris Day on the other. Just classy and gorgeous.
