| 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!

| 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!

As fall sports seasons are winding down, it frees up time for some of my late fall seniors!  I had a wonderful time with Brandon last Sunday morning in the chilly fall weather as we walked our small hometown and found the last of the fall colors!  He had some great ideas, so we put our heads together for some great shots; trying to choose just a few for sneak peeks was no easy task!  Brandon is just coming off a fantastic golf season where he and his team mates headed down to state for a back to back appearance and he was named to the NWOAL All League First Team and Golfer of the Year!  He will soon be kicking off his senior baseball season and I’m so excited to capture some more senior moments for him this spring!  Congrats Brandon!

| Archbold Bluestreak Alumni Marching Band 2015 |

Covering events are always a nice change of pace, but they are even more special when the event is one with great meaning to me.  Last year I was thrilled to get to capture my high school’s Alumni band!  The staff and Alumni group have now made it an annual event at homecoming and I was once again honored to capture the evening yet again!  I was hoping to march along with them, but with the arrival of our little one only a few weeks off, I opted to stay behind the camera rather than dusting off my trumpet.  This year’s Alumni band was even larger than last year’s and when combined with the current HS band, they sounded great!  Hopefully next year the Alumni & HS band numbers continue to grow and the combined bands will stretch even further across the field!

| AHS Bluestreak Marching Band | Sights & Sounds 2014

I once again had the opportunity to capture a very important event for my high school! The AHS Band recently purchased new uniforms and I was honored when the director asked if I would be the first professional to photograph the group in the new uniforms as they revealed them to the public at their annual Sights & Sounds Concert to wrap up the marching season. The AHS band is one of great pride, tradition, and excellence, always striving to be the best and continuing to learn and grow. I can speak from experience of these things, there is, and was, no greater feeling than wearing the blue and gold on Friday nights and representing our school. Working with this group and their staff this year has been even more special for me, as the current director is also an AHS Alum and former classmate; it has been wonderful to see the tradition continue! Congrats to the AHS Marching Band and staff on a wonderful 2014 season!

And yes, I can admit that I was a sophomore in high school when the previous uniforms were purchased! 😉
