| Erin Reichert Senior 2021 |

Heart, kindness, determination, and beauty, just a few of the words that describe 2021 Senior, Erin!   We spent a cool, crisp fall evening at their home, downtown, and off to our local campground for her session.  There wasn’t one place that Erin didn’t rock and knock it out of the park; with cloudy skies and soft golden light, we had a wonderful time, choosing just a few to sneak was no easy task!  While school looks different for everyone this year, that hasn’t stopped this senior from making the best of things and loving every minute of it.  Erin is bound for great things and it has been a pleasure to be able to capture just a small part of it.  Best of luck this year Erin, can’t wait to see what your future holds!

| Zoe Castillo AHS Senior 2021 |

The leaves are changing, the weather is cooling, and signs of fall are all around us.  This also means getting to spend time with area seniors as we capture their senior photos!  Last weekend I had the pleasure of meeting up with Zoe and walking a local downtown to find the perfect spots for her before we headed out to hit the trails of a Goll Woods, a state nature preserve.  It was a beautiful day, with gorgeous evening light and a dramatic golden hour!  I’ve been lucky to work with Zoe each fall through the AHS Marching Band and their numerous activities.  Her beautiful smile lit up every picture; from brick wall to a wildflower patch, she was stunning!  Thank you Zoe for a wonderful evening, best of luck in your Senior Year!

| Graicen Siler 2021 Senior, Summer |

Senior sessions are some of my favorites.  Every senior brings an individuality to their session in their locations, outfits, and props.  We started planning Graicen’s senior session last fall and she knew that she wanted to do some in each season; what a great idea to capture your senior year as the seasons change!  Last Friday we got together for her summer session and had a wonderful time finding unique spots at the local reservoir. Stay tuned for more of Graicen as the seasons change!

| Dana Voll AHS Senior 2020 Fall Session |

Dana’s late summer session was stunning, from the football field to a wonderful grassy field; but her fall session last weekend was just as gorgeous!  We had beautiful weather for the second part of her 2020 AHS Senior session, with sunshine and warm temperatures, we were able to enjoy many of our local downtown areas.  So many great brick buildings, shutters, cinder blocks, and great wood siding, Dana shined just a bright this fall as she did in the summer!  Being around her amazing personality and sweet smile, you can’t help but be happy and enjoy the moment!  She worked the camera flawlessly in her relaxed, urban outfit, ready to take on anything life as to throw at her.  Dana has a bright future ahead and I can’t wait to hear all about her fall plans as they fall into place!  Thank you for two amazing sessions and so much beautiful images!

| Hailie Philpot MHS Senior 2020 |

This year’s senior’s have chosen some absolutely amazing locations for their sessions, and Hailie, a Monroe Ohio High School 2020 Senior, was no exception last Saturday!  We headed out to a local metropark and were lucky enough to find a small hint of fall color in one of their amazing grassy fields and a few colored leaves filtering the trails and bridges.  Hailie is such a sweet, kind young woman from with a bright future ahead!  She brought lots of great ideas to her session and a fabulous chair!  I love when seniors bring something personal to help customize their session, and this chair was amazing; the perfect amount of unique mixed with personality and style!  We started off at just one of the many great locations in the metropark, then headed to a gorgeous trail, the main hub was next where we found the perfect bridge, and off to finish in the stunning grassy field!  We couldn’t have asked for a better day and great weather for this fantastic senior, thank you Hailie for such a wonderful Saturday evening!  Best of luck this next fall!

| Riah Short AHS Senior 2020 |

Fall colors are still hiding here in Northwest Ohio, but that didn’t stop Riah from bringing beautiful fall color to her senior session last weekend!  This girl is stunning, hilarious, exuberant, smart, and we had an amazing time with her!  It would have been much easier to share her entire session than to choose a few sneak peeks, they are all so beautiful!  To give her session a personal spin, we started in the high school auditorium to showcase her love of music, she’s a fabulous singer and plays two instruments in band; she had such a great idea on how she wanted to pose these shots, so we put our heads together, found the best way to make it happen, and I love how they turned out.  We then headed out to our local nature preserve where the sun snuck behind the clouds at the perfect time and allowed us to use some amazing grassy spots and even the road through the woods!  Riah worked the camera like no other, her smile and laughter were contagious, and we couldn’t have asked for a better Sunday afternoon!  I can’t wait to see where the future takes Riah, thank you all for such a wonderful time, best of luck this next fall!

| Tyler Smith PHS Senior 2020 |

Senior year is a busy time for today’s seniors, so many activities, ball games, programs, college visits, and job opportunities!  Within the hustle and bustle are also many lasts; the last first day of school, the last first game, the last first club meeting, and even that last exam.  I had the honor of spending last Sunday with Pettisville High School Senior Tyler and his family and what a beautiful day we had!  The rain held off, we had sunshine, clouds, and wonderful locations.  We started off at Franker Mill Bridge, then to the school, and our last stop was the always wonderful Sauder Village!  We took advantage of the many great buildings and even ventured into their newest addition, The 1920’s!  We were able to capture so many wonderful images of Tyler, it was no easy task to find just a few sneaks!  Thank you Tyler and Family for a wonderful Sunday afternoon, best of luck this year and in the coming fall!

| Dana Voll AHS Senior 2020 |

Fall is quickly approaching, our nights are cooler and our days are getting shorter, summer has come and gone so quickly!  Schools are now back in session and that means senior sessions are in full swing!  Last Friday night I met up with Dana and her sweet family to capture the first part of her senior session!  Dana is one of the field commander’s for the school’s marching band and it was so much fun to head out to the football field to capture that important part of her senior year!  After wrapping up there we headed out to a gorgeous field across the road from her house for some golden hour magic!  Nothing can beat that beautiful light and our night was capped off by a stunning sunset!  Dana brought so many wonderful ideas to her session, we had some great helpers in her brothers, and I had a great time with her!  Best of luck this year Dana, I can’t wait for part two of your session!

| 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!

| Felicia Jones AHS Senior 2019 |

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!
