| Kyle Ordway THS Senior 2019 |

Every senior session is special and unique, but this one was a little extra special!  Kyle happens to be a cousin of mine and he had some fabulous ideas for his session!  We started off in downtown Defiance, headed out to the THS & football field, and back to the woods for a little fun with some colored smoke bombs!  Trying to decide just which images to sneak has been no easy task, there are so many wonderful ones.  From brick alleyways and side streets, to the stadium bleachers and a little smoke bomb fun, help me in wishing Kyle best of luck next year as he attends The Ohio State University!

Rain has kept many farmers in our area out of the fields lately, but that didn’t stop us from heading out to the always beautiful Sauder Village Campground for Felicia’s Senior Session last weekend!  The trees were showing hints of leaves and the grass showing more greens than browns as our spring has taken a back seat to colder weather!  We started at the Heritage Inn and made our way to the campground, the ground was a bit soggy but that didn’t stop us from capturing this gorgeous senior!  With graduation just a few weeks away, seniors are planning parties with family and friends and getting ready to take that next step, be it collage, trade schools, or the work force, the class of 2019 is almost ready!  Best of luck after graduation Felicia, thank you for a wonderful Sunday evening!

Hints of spring color are popping up, the grass is greening, and the trees are finally budding!  Though finding that beautiful spring green color is still tough around here, we had a great Saturday evening for Eric’s senior session!  We started at his home with their gorgeous barns and his adorable pup and then headed out in his VW Cabriolet for some fun!  He took us to a gorgeous secluded spot with amazing grasses, paths, and trees, add in that gorgeous golden light, and we had a perfect evening!  Eric is a such a sweet young man with a great smile that makes everyone around him smile too!  Congratulations Eric and best of luck after graduation!

| Reese Knapp AHS Senior 2019 |

Ice and snow is blanketing northwest Ohio today as schools close and many are heading for the warm indoors!  As sessions begin to wrap for the year and graphics projects and logo design are picking up, it was fun to spend one of my last 2018 sessions with Reese last weekend!  We headed south a little ways to his mom’s home town and were able to find some wonderful spots!  We had access to some amazing old barns, a gorgeous old ’39 John Deere B tractor, and when your grandpa is the fire chief for the local department, you head into the warm fire station after being out in the chilly for some indoor fun!  Thank you Reese for a fun Sunday afternoon, best of luck this year and in the coming fall!

Every senior session is unique and special, Hunter’s was no exception!  We roamed our high school’s downtown and found some great locations, then headed out to two of his favorite places, and even had a helper who was amazing!  Thanks Mya!  Hunter’s smile was so sweet and you could tell he is enjoying his senior year, it goes fast and he is making the most of it!  He has a very bright future ahead after high school and I know that he is going to do so well!  Congrats Hunter and best of luck after graduation!

| Katie Short 2019 AHS Senior |

Summer is quickly coming to a close and schools are back in session, warm nights are quickly fading, and the days are starting to get a little shorter.  Luckily I got to spend one of the last few days before school with now AHS Senior Katie!  We had so much fun finding grassy spots, which are some of her favorite places, adventuring, and coming accross a great old barn!  From great smiles and serious faces we had so many laughs and even dodged a few mosquitoes!  She is sure to stay busy with school, being an FC, and playing soccer, best of luck this year Katie!

Now that August is here, that means school is just around the corner and seniors are getting ready for their final year of high school!  Last Saturday I spent the evening in our small town with Brock, an upcoming Archbold High School Senior!  We found some great spots downtown and then took a short walked to his house and used their amazing old barn!  Not only was it perfect, but I learned a little bit of our town’s history and Brock’s family’s history!  As golden hour approached we took a quick drive to a local woods and took advantage of the warm summer evening, a great location, and a beautiful sunset!  Thank you Brock and family for a fun evening and best of luck this coming year Brock!

| Lydia Wachtman NHS Senior 2019 |

Happy 4th of July!  What a great way to kick of the Holiday with some sneaks from this amazing 2019 summer senior session!  I headed to Napoleon last week and found some great places with the gorgeous Lydia!  From old barns and alley ways in between brick buildings, to grungy doorways and chalk on the bricks, it was a beautiful start to the evening.  We then head out to her family’s farm just a few miles down the road!  This time of year is wheat harvest for our area, and those golden fields of wheat are amazing.  I was so excited to find out Lydia’s family had several wheat fields on their farm, and we took full advantage of it!  We were able to capture so many amazing images during golden hour through sunset!  Choosing just a few sneaks from her session was not an easy task, but so much fun!  Thank you Lydia for an incredible evening and good luck this upcoming year!

| Brandon Miller AHS Senior 2018, Baseball |

We hit the baseball field last Sunday to finish up Brandon’s Senior Session!  You saw sneaks from the first half last fall from our downtown and golf session, and now that spring is here we had great weather to head outside!  Brandon even took to the mound for a few pitches to throw some heat!  It’s been so much fun getting to capture Brandon this year, Congratulations and Best of Luck this Fall!

| Nic Rodriguez AHS Senior 2018 |

Archbold’s football season wrapped up just a few weeks ago after a great season!  I spent this last Sunday with Nic, the football team’s safety and wide receiver and also the baseball team’s left fielder; he may look warm, but it was a very chilly day!  Nic braved the weather for short sleeves, all while I was layered and bundled!  My favorite thing about seniors is learning about their activities in school and seeing their personality shine through, Nic was no exception!  The moment we hit the football field you could see the love he has for the sport and that he will greatly miss it, and his teammates, next fall.  Baseball was the same, he looked ready to take the field and that spring can’t come quick enough!  It was a pleasure to spend the afternoon with Nic, congrats on a great football season, good luck with the upcoming baseball season, and most of all good luck next year!  Congrats Nic!
