| Abbie Short AHS Senior 2022 |

Senior sessions, we never know just what we will do or where we will go, but it’s always exciting to find out how they each want to personalize their time!  We were looking forward to spending time with Abbie and knew she would have some great ideas!  Having captured her two older sisters, she was ready to mix it up and we did just that!  From downtown and the tennis courts, to the football field and stage, Abbie rocked the entire evening and it was a great way to showcase the activities that are most important to her; trying to pick just a few to favorites to sneak was no easy task.  Seeing her step onto the courts and field she lit up and you knew these were her happy places.  The Short Family is one we always look forward to spending time with and we are ready to capture their whole family soon!  Thank you Abbie for a wonderful evening, best of luck in your senior year!

| 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!

| 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!

| 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!

| AHS & RHS Alumni Band 2017 |

Fall, the smell of falling leaves, cool rains, pumpkins, mums, it’s my favorite time of the year! October also means it’s Archbold High School & Ridgeville High School Alumni Band night! I am honored to be able to capture this evening each year, to see faces I don’t see often, catch up with them, and reminisce! What started out as a rainy morning and afternoon, turned into a gorgeous night for everyone. Events are such a fun thing to capture, you never know what’s going to happen, a drummer could break out into dancing to James Brown or the flag girls could lift trumpet player! A huge thank you to all involved for making this evening happen for the Alumni, the 2017 AHS Marching Band, the speaker Mr. Hoverman, current AHS Band Director Beth Voll & her amazing staff, it was a fun night to be a part of! Looking forward to next year already! Go Streaks & Falcons!

Once again this year I have been lucky enough to work with the wonderful staff and students at of the AHS Marching Band!  As an alumni it has been a great pleasure to be able to give back to a school and program that I was a part of!  It was a warm picture night and start to the football and marching band seasons, but everyone looked great and it was a great halftime show.  Best of luck this year to the AHS Marching Band!

| 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! 😉
