Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Senior Photographer || KCCC 2020: Taylyn

You’d never know it, but when Taylyn arrived to her session, her words were ‘I’m just here.’ and she was unsure of what her senior portrait experience was going to be. About 15 minutes into the session, Taylyn was giggling and started to show her true self. After a few more minutes, I asked Taylyn to ‘freestyle’ it for a minute and that’s when I called her a liar. (In the best way!) She was not just there. She was KILLING the poses and she was starting to enjoy what I wanted her and every human being who steps in front of my camera to experience: A moment where they can be their truest self.

By the end of the session, Taylyn had been goofy, sarcastic, laughed hard and loud…. She flipped her hair and walked with confidence and sass. She didn’t water herself down or guard herself. I think what was more enjoyable than watching Taylyn be herself was watching her mother literally GLOW with a huge smile on her face because her daughter was having a good time. That was the best!

I get to hang out with Taylyn again in a few months and I can’t wait to catch up with her on life and meet her cow! Until then, we have these images to love on.

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Senior Photographer || Mount Vernon 2020: Kimberly

The third and youngest of the Trapp ladies have stepped in front of my camera. It’s not Kimberly’s turn to celebrate her senior year. She has worked tirelessly and committed tons of her time to soccer. I really loved getting to know her and listen to all the things she’s looking forward to in the coming year and beyond.

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Senior Photographer || Danville 2020: Vivian

Vivian is living her best life! She has a full schedule these days and has been traveling too! Vivian was recently apart of local theater production, The Wizard of Oz and has also been spending the summer scouting colleges! She shared with me how much she enjoys a moment instead of a place. I thought that was so wise. She further explained that she enjoys a place because of the people and moments created there instead of just the place. I felt that was SO soulful and mature.

In her downtime, she loves to do her nails and GIRL CAN DO SOME NICE NAILS! She’s so talented, sweet and was so fun to work with! I’m wishing Vivian the BEST senior year ever! <3

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Senior Photographer || Mount Vernon 2019: Corrick

Corrick has DAYS until he is a high school graduate! I’ve known Corrick for a few years now through various family sessions I’ve gotten to do for his family. To see that he is a senior makes me feel like time has passed too quickly but I’m sure for Corrick, it needs to move faster with graduation just in reach!

Oh my goodness! Cynthia is graduating in WEEKS! I’m so happy I got to meet her and her mama and they made sure to get these senior portraits done. It’s a once in a lifetime moment that CAN’T be missed!

Cynthia is such a sweet, kind person! Did you know this girl GOLFS?! I loved learning that about her and her plans for after school. I think that she is going to be such a positive force, wherever she goes!

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Senior Photographer || Highland 2019: Isaiah

Isaiah really surprised me when he showed up to the studio. He immediately introduced himself and shook my hand. This typically isn’t the norm. Seniors sometimes arrive to sessions nervous and unsure of what a session entails so the parent is typically the one doing most of the talking at first. This was not the case and I was thrilled that Isaiah was so excited for his session.

Isaiah’s outfits are incredible. Believe me when I chuckled a bit at the fanny pack. Heads up: Their making a comeback! During Isaiah’s session, he, his dad, and I spoke about life, college, and sports. Isaiah is passionate about football and lifting. I really enjoyed Isaiah’s energy and personality that I think shines through in his images. I am so happy I got to meet him and his father. They are really great people!

Going on nine years in business, I have never photographed a pageant queen until now! Lora contacted me after she was recently crowned and titled Ohio Fairs’ Queen! She and her friend came to the studio and I was so happy to meet them. Lora is absolutely lovely! I am so thankful she gave me this opportunity. I truly look forward to seeing all she accomplishes in the future.

Last year, I photographed his sister’s senior portraits but now it’s Zach’s turn! Zach is a busy senior in many activities including working on his Eagle Scout project!

Mount Vernon Ohio \ Columbus Ohio Senior Photographer || Mount Vernon 2019: Alec

Alec had me laughing his ENTIRE session. He is a really funny and nice guy! I was really excited when his mom told me he wanted pictures at the fire station where he is a cadet. Alec was inspired by a family friend to join and when he speaks about his time as a cadet, you can tell he is really passionate about it! Alec is also looking forward to voting in this upcoming election as he turns 18 RIGHT before election day! I loved getting to know him and his mom while photographing his senior portraits!

I also want to give a big thank you to Halle for referring us to Alec’s mom! We appreciate your support <3

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Senior Photographer || Centerburg 2019: Cate

Upon first meeting Cate, she seems like a normal girl. But in about 30 seconds of talking to her, she handles herself as an adult. Cate loves sports, she’s looking forward to college and wants to do something that incorporates engineering and some sort of humanitarian cause like the water crisis in third world countries and creating water systems.

Cate is brilliant! She has also played the piano since second grade. Her family welcomed me into her home to photograph Cate by the piano. I asked her to play for me to get some really genuine shots. While she played, I felt tears welling up in my eyes. I have never gotten emotional when anyone else has played for me. I watched Cate and she allowed herself to be so vulnerable in that moment. She just like the music be created from the tips of her fingers onto the keys of the piano. It was moving. I wasn’t the only one though, mom was getting misty eyed too.

Cate, thank you for allowing me to photograph you. For sharing your story and bits of your life with me. I hope you love your senior portraits.

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Fredericktown Ohio Photographer || Fredericktown 2019: Blake

Blake is one of a kind, I mean her name alone is different from the usual ‘Ashley’ or ‘Hannah’. She’s genuine, smiley, and loves twenty one pilots. (She’s so excited about an upcoming concert she’s going to!) I loved Blake’s style but even more so, her personality. I’m blessed to have met her, her mom and her sister.

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio High School Senior Photographer || Danville 2018: Nancy

Nancy has been busy but she still made time to get her senior portraits photographed RIGHT before the end of the year! 

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Senior Photographer || Mount Vernon 2018: Jasmine

My my, this sweet lady astounds me! Y'all, I'm not going to tell you EVERYTHING I know about her in the short time I've known her, but what I can tell you is that she is very mature for her age. The way she speaks about things, handles the things that are put on her plate are incredible. She has a wonderful work ethic, is sweet, and really loves her family. 

Jasmine and I bonded over so much. We are very much alike... we even got to talking about Grey's Anatomy too! I'm blessed to have gotten to meet her. She is beautiful, kind and has the power to move mountains. I hope this isn't year isn't the last time I photograph her because I can't wait to see her again and hear about all the amazing things she will be doing in life. 

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Senior Photographer || Grove City 2018: Haley

Haley is such a kind, unique and loving soul! She has art in her blood and the brain of a rocket scientist! Just being around her was inspiring. Watch out world, there is NO doubt in my mind that she is going to change the world. Just wait and see.

Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Senior Photography || East Knox 2018:

For years, I have heard senior clients and their parents say 'No, studio portraits for seniors are cheesy!'. I can agree that if done right, you can definitely get a 90's studio feel to images that are just not up to par. When Colleen came into my studio, I was determined to work with her to create a set of images that was more Vanity Fair, Rolling Stones, modern day celebrity photo shoot appeal. I wanted to show anyone in doubt of studio portraits that they do not have to be cheesy. 

When Colleen came into my studio yesterday for her reveal, her reaction left me speechless. She kept commenting on how happy she was, recording the slideshow I had made for her on her phone, and afterwards gave me the most heartwarming hug that I really did need over a few bad days I was experiencing!

I hope to get to do more sessions like these. Allowing anyone to come in and have their portraits taken and feel like it's celebrity grade results.

Colleen, thank you for trusting me. Allowing me to dress you, choose colors, style and poses without a single doubt or question. You have been such a blessing. I can't wait to see you do great things sweetheart! <3
