Senior pictures New Albany Ohio

I was on vacation in Hilton Head when Lydia’s mom first contacted me. She told me that Lydia was about to begin her senior year at New Albany High School. She shared that Lydia has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair. She said “She doesn’t have great head control, but has a smile that would stop a freight train.”  She cautioned that it would take some patience to get good portraits. Little did her mom know that my very active boys had spent YEARS training my patience. 😉  I was eager to meet both Lydia and her mom because I loved that her mom saw the value in doing something so very special for her, and I was honored to be considered to take part in the process.

I can easily say that Lydia’s senior portrait experience was just that… an experience.  However, this time the experience, the rewards, and the enjoyment were all mine. When she smiled, I smiled bigger. When her eyes lit up, mine did the same. When she changed into her next outfit, I played horse with her younger brother (well, ok, maybe that wasn’t as fun for me as it was for him).  My point is that Lydia and her family gave me an experience that I won’t ever forget.

Fall senior pictures on the New Albany Country Club golf course? Yes, please!!! Fall senior pictures in downtown Columbus, Ohio? Yes, please!! Fall senior pictures with a stylish young man with a personality that is just as cool as his hair? YES, please!! Why not combine it all?!! 

I swear, when I look back at these portraits (and all of my Class of 2017 high school seniors) I wonder how in the world I get so lucky to be able to work with such incredible young adults and their amazing families?

Senior pictures New Albany

Just as the year at New Albany High school was beginning, we celebrated McKenzie’s senior year by shooting her senior portraits in downtown Columbus. It was a gorgeous August day. We paired her incredible style with unique locations. And we laughed. And laughed. And laughed.

As luck would have it, ALL of my high school seniors are destined for greatness. For some that greatness may be in the form of becoming a medical doctor. For some it may be in the form of leading high school students to Christ as a Young Life leader.  For others, it may come in the form of an executive, an elementary school teacher or an engineer. As for McKenzie, better known as Muggie, that destiny will be on stage as a New York City Rockette. Well, maybe that hasn’t actually been determined just yet, but let’s just say I won’t be surprised when it does in fact happen.

I can’t share her senior portraits without mentioning that McKenzie is so much more than her school accolades, dance competition wins, and striking beauty. She is a dedicated daughter and a loving sister; and I am so glad we were able to capture that in the form of family portraits! <3!  Senior pictures new albany, best new albany photographer, coolest senior pictures in columbus ohio.

Fall is by far the time of year when senior pictures in Columbus are in peak demand. By that time, school has started and the students genuinely feel like they are seniors. They’ve scored the best parking spaces in the lot, the best bleachers at the football games, the right to leave school for lunch; and if all goes well, they’ve even scored an early release class schedule. But beyond all that, the weather has begun to change. So my senior girls can change up their dresses and heels with jeans and boots and add in some fall colors. It really is a great balance and a great way to kick off that senior year, in addition to that awesome parking space of course. 😉

Introducing Laura, a GRADUATE of Dublin Coffman High School Class of 2016. I loved how Laura NAILED each and every one of her styles. We were able to use so many parts of Columbus for her portraits yet get distinct looks in each location and style. <3!!!

I’m certainly not proud to say it but admit that it has been nearly two years since I have shared senior portraits sessions here on my blog. The only excuse I have isn’t really an excuse, it’s the truth.  I’m a one woman show, and honestly, something has to be the low priority on the list. For me, blogging falls into that spot most often.  I doubt I’ll ever want to be anything other than a one woman show. My business is built on relationships, and if I wasn’t involved in every aspect of the process it wouldn’t be the same. So ultimately, my Instagram, blog, and Facebook go a bit idle more often than not. This week, I am thinking I’ll give them a little TLC,  but I am not making any long term promises here. You understand, right?! <3!!

On to the beautiful reason that I am here…. Courtney! Now a GRADUATE of Olentangy Orange High School. Wowza, right? Those eyes. That style. but honestly, none of compares to how sweet was. I adored working with her and her mom. They picked her looks and I coordinated our locations, I’d say we were quite the match! Congratulations Courtney and best wishes as you follow in the footsteps of the family before you at Ohio University!
