Alex’s Senior Portrait Session

I had such a great time with Alex and his mom, Teresa, for Alex’s senior portrait session in Chagrin Falls. I first met Teresa when I photographed her older son, Nick for his senior photos, so I knew we were going to have a fun time for this shoot. Alex is a super laid-back, easy-going guy with a great smile. An accomplished cross-country runner, we decided to start at Beartown Lakes, where Alex often runs, and went to downtown Chagrin Falls to get the iconic waterfall shot. Thanks so much for a great session, Alex and Teresa! Here are my favorites:

Elizabeth and Matt’s Wedding Celebration

Matt and Elizabeth celebrated a beautiful wedding earlier this summer at Parkside Church in Bainbridge, Ohio, with a super fun reception at Roses Run Country Club in Stow. We ended up with a beautiful day with some very dramatic clouds that threatened rain, and Elizabeth’s great bridesmaids came prepared with some cute umbrellas, but luckily the rain held off. We did a “first look” prior to the ceremony and had a few cute and curious spectators from the bridal party! The entire day was filled with beautiful details including Matt and Elizabeth’s first dance song which Matt had written and was performed by one of Matt’s groomsmen. It was a heartfelt and blessed day and it was a privilege to be a part of it. Thank you so much, Elizabeth and Matt!

Danielle’s Senior Portrait

A late-season senior portrait session can be so hit-or-miss in terms of the weather in Northeastern Ohio, and of course, the day I met Danielle and her mother was somewhat of a miss. It was rainy and cold, but Danielle was totally willing to try for some outdoor shots on the golf course at Chagrin Valley Country Club. Poor thing was freezing! We ventured out onto the golf course, but called the session for weather and headed back to the club house to finish up inside. Luckily, Dad wasn’t too far away and was able to bring Danielle’s flat iron to help with the waves that came back to Danielle’s hair in the rain! Danielle rolled with it all and we ended up with a great shoot! Here are my favorites:

Ben’s Senior Portraits

When Ben’s mom contacted me for her son’s senior photos, I was so excited and flattered. Kim is quite an accomplished painter and I was honored that she chose me to take Ben’s portraits. Ben is a quiet guy and has a very comfortable, confident air about him. We started with some photos at their newly built house and then moved on to nearby Chagrin Falls. We had a beautiful day and I really enjoyed my time with both Ben and his mom. Thanks so much for the opportunity, Kim!

Sarah’s Senior Portraits

Sarah’s session was a two-parter because it decided to rain, heavily, during our first meeting in Chagrin Falls. The sky was angry, my friends, and we before things opened up on us, we quickly decided to reschedule the second half of the session. Day two of the shoot was at the Cleveland Museum of Art and Wade Oval. Combined, we had two great days of shooting. Thanks so much for a fun session, Sarah! I had a great time with everyone!

Grant’s Senior Portraits

Grant was super fun to photograph. Most guys are shy and many don’t really look forward to having their photos taken, but Grant was a trooper and did a great job in front of the camera. We walked all over downtown Chagrin Falls and ended up in the Metro Parks. Thanks for being a trooper, Grant!

Great, great senior portrait session with Jessi in Chagrin Falls! I thought I had a great session with her older sister, Abby, last year, and this one was equally fantastic!
