| Schriner Family |

This family holds a special place in my heart! Having grown up with Sarah and Cindy, has been wonderful to watch their families grow! Our morning was much warmer than we had anticipated, making it a bit easier on the little ones to be outside longer. And how cute are the three girls! Those smiles on Emma and Morgan, loving on little Alayna, too adorable! Thank you for a wonderful Sunday morning session Schriner Family!

| 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! ūüėČ

| Archbold Bands |

This fall I have had the great privileged and honor to be a part of my high school once again!  From capturing the new Alumni Band and the AHS final marching show to a new logo, it has been wonderful to be a part of this great tradition again.  Archbold bands have had a tradition of excellence that has reached back over 40 years, and the current director of bands is not about to let that disappear.  She has taken on the challenge of continually pushing her students to reach a potential that she knows is there and that she knows they can achieve.  This is not only obvious in the classroom, but on the field as well.  Just watching these high schoolers march you can see discipline and pride in every step.  We wanted to create a fresh and new look for the band program that shows their past and present.  Creating a logo can be a daunting task for some, but we start out with a look, then build and edit from there.  Sometimes logos need detail and lots going on, others like this one, need to be less complex to really stand out and catch your attention.  You will notice the Streak in the background, this has been the logo for Archbold for many many years, while the specific A that has been used has changed a little over the years.  The A seen in this logo is the current A that the school uses, so we have incorporated the past, present, and future into a logo that the band program can be proud to call theirs.  I have had a wonderful time working with the director, whom also happens to be a fellow classmate and AHS Alumni, getting to know her family, and seeing her continue the proud Archbold Band traditions!  Congrats to the staff and members of the AHS Marching Bluestreak sand Archbold Bands on a wonderful fall season!

 

 

 

| AHS Marching Bluestreaks & Alumni |

I was honored to be asked to photograph my high school’s first ever Alumni Band! I was originally unable to march with them due to work, but when my schedule happened to change, I was honored to be asked to capture this fantastic evening! It was an night full of sharing memories, laughter, the alumni getting to know the current band members, the return of two legendary AHS Marching Band directors, and lots of emotions! To some this may look like just any other band, but to those of us whom were lucky enough to march under the direction of Mr. Ehrman and Mr. Hoverman, there is a tradition that exists far deeper than the eye can see! Congrats to everyone involved on a great evening and looking forward to next year when I can march along with all of you!
