We share the same name…so of course she is awesome! Meet Melissa:
Like the Allman Brothers sang, she truly is a sweet girl with GORGEOUS blue eyes! She is passionate about the color guard and is going to be an English major at OSU next year. She brought along her best friend Lauren for support as we took pictures at Homestead Park in Hilliard. This was a fantastic location that Melissa & her mother chose…which I loved! It is a park right in the middle of Hilliard that reminds me of the country. There are barns, a train car, tall grass, a pond, bridges…a photographer’s paradise!
They have the coolest playground…I will have to remember that for when Theo’s a little older:)
Of course she wanted a photo with Lauren:)
The light was gorgeous that day.
Even thought we battled the wind and at times the wind won, I think we got some absolutely beautiful shots of Melissa.
Thanks so much Melissa, it was a pleasure meeting you:)
I was so happy to get to visit with Reagan and her parents, Jen & Larry again. It has been 6 months since her last session, and boy has she grown!
We met at Goodale Park again on a lovely spring afternoon. Reagan was having so much fun running, dancing, feeding the ducks, exploring her mommy’s purse & going down the slide.
I think this is so adorable!
Reagan wasn’t the most cooperative when it came to posed family photos…but I think we got a few keepers!
Reagan earned a little slide time after all that hard picture taking!
Thanks Jen, Larry & Reagan, I love getting to see Reagan grow!
Gabe is another senior who just wasn’t into getting his pictures taken. We met at the North Market on a sunny afternoon for a half hour session (even though we probably only spent 10 minutes taking pictures:)).
I was so excited when Ally and Matt decided on the Spaghetti Warehouse area for their shoot. After one super windy and slightly rainy Saturday reschedule we were able to meet on a beautiful (but windy and cold) afternoon to take their engagement session. This area is so awesome to shoot at. It is urban, distressed and no one seems to care if you are around.
Poor Ally was freezing in her short sleeves but agreed to take a walk over the Broad St. bridge and explore a little of downtown as well. We ventured around the LeVeque tower and behind the Palace Theater. I learned that Matt is interested in photography and he gave me a few pose suggestions…they were fantastic! These two were up for anything, even a little smooching in a bus stop:) I love when couples allow me to be creative and go along with my craziness.
Ally & Matt met at work and have only known each other for about a year and half. I think it’s great that they know they want to be together and see no sense in a long relationship before marriage. That’s how my husband and I felt so I can definitely relate. They are great together, Ally laughs a lot and Matt is a quiet thinker.
Umm how cool is this abandoned building?
Matt had the idea for the Park and Tailor sign…awesome, right?
Ally said this is as close as she will be to being on stage:)
Thanks for spending your afternoon with me. I am so excited for August, and I’m sure you are too!
