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.

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.

Lindsey’s senior pictures were SO much fun! We laughed from the moment her makeup application started until we said goodbye. She chose 3 distinct styles that perfectly represented her life as a high school senior.  I selected three different downtown Columbus locations to compliment each look and ensure that her senior portraits would have great variety. We also incorporated Lindsey’s passion for beach volleyball. After she graduates from New Albany High School this year she will head to Tulane University and join their sand volleyball squad. Have I mentioned that her vertical jump is higher than my 5 year old stands? Lindsey, thank you for sharing your senior year with me. I can’t wait to see where your future leads. XOXO!

Contrary to popular belief, I don’t only photograph girls. Often times I am lucky enough to work with high school senior boys! Actually,  I am lucky enough to work with their moms. For senior guy sessions, the moms generally have a heavy hand in coordinating the session and then choosing the favorite products and portraits at the ordering session.  You see, I am a boy mom. My boys don’t pause for pictures, they hopefully probably won’t enjoy selfies in high school and taking off the athletic clothes to dress up for our own family portraits generally involves a great deal of bribery.  It should go without saying, I see the insurmountable importance of senior pictures for boys, and therefore, enjoy them more as much as photographing the girls!

Reid, a high school senior at New Albany,  was fantastic to photograph. We used three unique locations in Downtown Columbus which created great variety in his portraits.  Reid was so easy going, kind and tolerant of the fun that his mom and I were having throughout the entire process.  In my opinion, that is a true testament to the student and the young professional that he will become in the coming years. Congratulations Reid.
