There are high school seniors that are talented and then there are high school seniors that are TALENTED!!! Emma would fall into the second category. 🙂 After seeing her in Gahanna Lincoln High School’s AMAZING rendition of Hairspray  it was understandable that she wanted to be sure to incorporate her passion for music and performance into her portrait session. She can sing, dance and act and do it all with a gigantic smile on her face. I feel honored to have gotten to know this beautiful young lady and I can’t wait to be watching her on a much larger stage while I am saying “I remember when…”!

I loved my time with Emma and I love that she and her parents wanted to include her sister, Grace,  in her portraits.  We made some gorgeous lifelong treasures that afternoon!

A little more about Emma:

My dream job is: Being on Broadway <——— I’ll be there to watch! 

Greatest high school accomplishment:  Getting the lead in Hairspray, as it was a dream of mine!

Favorite place to shop:  Forever 21

Starbucks order: Grande vanilla bean frappuccino with 3 pumps of raspberry

A high school highlight:  I’d have to say my entire senior year was a highlight. I got to be a part of Chorale and PS, which I’ve wanted since basically elementary school, and the people in those groups are my best friends. I also got to play Tracy Turnblad in Hairspray, which is my absolute dream role, so that was an indescribable experience.

I loved working with Fran because:  She cared so much more than just about my senior pictures. She was interested about my personal life, how school was going, and wanted to know what interested me, which is I think the reason her pictures are so amazing and personal.

Emma, congratulations on your high school accomplishments! Always remember that they sky’s the limit!!

Several weeks prior to Cassidy’s senior portrait session I had the pleasure of working with a few of her friends from Gahanna. I kept hearing how sweet and lovable Cassidy was and how I was going to love working with her, so much so that I couldn’t wait to meet this lovely young lady.  I instantly found that the hype was true. She has a great spirit about her, such an infectious smile, and happens to have the most humorous twitter hashtags ever!

We had the most gorgeous fall day for Cassidy’s senior portraits. She looked stunning and had the perfect variety of looks. The only thing more enjoyable was seeing her fall in love with her portraits at her ordering session. <3

Have you ever met a teenager whom is wise beyond their years, more mature than the average, and such a methodical thinker that you’re in amazement? Bethany is one of those girls! She is as intelligent as she is beautiful!  She was so natural in front of the camera and SUCH a pleasure to work with!

You will notice her sparkly green dress. As pretty as the dress may be, there is more behind it than just a fashion statement. You see, that dress is worn only by the girls that have the honor of being chosen to perform in Chorale, a special choir show group. For Bethany, wearing that dress meant that one of her high school dreams had been realized, and I could not have been more thrilled to help capture such a momentous accomplishment.

Bethany is headed to the Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University. As amazing as that accomplishment is, I know it is merely the beginning of her incredible furture!

A little more about Bethany:

High school highlight:  …the rush of performing for the elementary school students our Chorale Holiday show. I’ve waited 10 years to do that, and it was a blend of excitement, panic, and euphoria. Also, becoming Editor-In-Chief of the Gahanna newspaper staff, and traveling to Washington DC on two consecutive Honor Flight Columbus trips.

My guilty pleasure is: One Direction, the Olympics  (Bethany, you surprised me with One Direction 🙂 )

One Day I will: …let travel experiences change my perspective on life.

In 5 years I see myself:  In 5 years, I see myself as a passionate journalist, roving the world for untold stories, promoting environmental sustainability, and honing my skills in writing, photography, and videography.

Who makes you laugh: My best friend, Sam

Do you have a hidden talent: Making canvas art

Greatest high school accomplishment:  Making the 2013-2014 Chorale show-choir

I loved working with Fran because:  …she is such a down-to-earth, kind-hearted person. She really has an eye for photography, and invests herself into your photo shoot. I love that she doesn’t just take all of her clients to the same locations – she selects out-of-the-way places for a reason. Soon, that spot becomes YOUR spot, where you had your senior pictures done. She’s incredible with her camera, and she made the process quite enjoyable – it was a dream-come-true experience. Thank you, Fran.      <—– Bethany, this gave me goosebumps!

Caroline’s session was such a blast! We enjoyed so many laughs, locations, outfit changes and even hair styling changes; Go big or go home, right? I know she has had an incredible year but with her poise, hard work, intelligence and spirit the future will be even brighter.

A little more about Caroline:

Greatest high school accomplishment:   Sharing my testimony in front of a couple hundred people.   <——– That is a lifetime highlight right there, my friend! So proud of you!

If I had $500 I would buy:  Clothes, clothes, and more clothes

One Day I will:  Start my own cupcake bakery and name it “Sweet Caroline’s”  (I adore this, Caroline!!)

High Heels or Running shoes:  This is a tough one… High heels

My guilty pleasure is: Justin Beiber!!!    (Caroline, I’m feeling so guilty for you!!)

Three things I will miss about high school:  My friends I’ve grown up with, football games, and getting all dolled up to dance the night away at prom and homecoming 🙂

In 5 years I see myself:  Working for a company until I earn enough to start my own 🙂 and hopefully settling down with the man God has chosen for me.

I loved working with Fran because:  She knew how to capture more than just a smile in a picture. She portrayed my personality and character through her work, which is what made my senior pictures so different from everyone else’s!
