| 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!

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!

| AHS & RHS Alumni Band 2018 |

Homecoming season is here and with that comes special halftime shows and activities for all of our local schools and bands.  I once again had the honor of capturing my alama mater’s alumni band this year!  The AHS/RHS Alumni Band was strong with many members returning to help celebrate homecoming and to pick up their instruments one more time!  Having been a member of the Marching Bluestreaks in high school, I know that the traditions run deep, the pride is strong, and there’s nothing like the sound of the drum cadences while marching!  It was amazing to see so many alumni standing next to current marching band students and to hear all of them together made you proud.  What a wonderful job by all alumni, students, and those whom helped to bring the evening together, looking forward to next year!  Thank you AHS/RHS members for an amazing evening, you sounded great!

| Brock Ranzau 2019 AHS Senior |

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!

| 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!

| Brandon Miller AHS 2018 |

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!

| Kenzie Short 2017 Graduation Invitations |

I have had an absolute blast working with Kenzie!  Her senior session was one of my favorites last year and getting to create these 5×7 graduation invitations was just as fun!  She choose one of her favorite images from the session and we added a unique script font mixed with a traditional serif font to highlight her name and the details of where she and her family will be celebrating!  Kenzie will be off to the University of Cincinnati this coming fall majoring in Engineering.  The University of Cincinnati holds a special place in her family’s heart and I’m sure that she will be right at home there!  Congrats Kenzie and the AHS Class of 2017!

| 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! 😉
