| Caleb Ranzau AHS Senior 2021 |

Last weekend we wrapped up our 2020 photo season with AHS Senior Caleb!  It’s been a fantastic year with amazing clients and outstanding images!  We started out in our small hometown of Ridgeville Corners, added in some cute fur babies, and then headed to Archbold and the football field for some football and band photos.  Football has played a large part in not only Caleb’s life, but his whole family’s; he’s even had the opportunity to have his uncle on the sidelines as one of his coaches!  I first met Caleb several years ago as a first year 4-H member in our club, it’s hard to believe that he’s a senior already and I look forward to seeing what the future has in store for him!  Thank you Caleb and family for a great evening and helping us to finish up the 2020 season!

As we head into the Holiday Season after what can only be described as a year like no other, we look forward to enjoying the lights, music, and many festivities around the surrounding communities.  On a warm Friday after Thanksgiving we headed out to capture the Beaverson’s 2020 back to school session!  It’s been an honor to capture the Beaverson Family over the years from school photos to senior sessions; the kids have changed so much and it’s always exciting to see where life will take them next!  Thank you Beaverson’s for the honor of being a part of your family’s milestones!

| Jack Ordway THS Senior 2021 |

The weather has been great these last few weekends for sessions and Jack’s senior session was no exception!  We had a slight chill and beautiful golden hour!  From downtown Defiance to a dead end road, we found great spots perfect for his Jeep.  Jack has decided to join the Army after high school and will be heading out in the summer of 2021, joining his brother who is also a member of the military.  A great young man with a bright future!  Thank you Jack for a wonderful evening, best of luck this coming year, and thank you for your service!

| 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!

| 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!

| 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!

When you wear a hot dog shirt to your session, you know it’s going to be great!  Brok is hilarious, his personality matches his shirt perfectly!  We had beautiful weather the other day as we strolled through downtown Defiance for his session.  I love my yearly sessions with this handsome guy, they are always full of laughs, giggles, and scary expressions!  Brok started kindergarten this week and I’m sure is going to rock it!  Have fun this year buddy!

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!
