Creekside Senior Session | Columbus Ohio Senior Photographer

Meet Jayden!! I LOVED working with Jayden for her senior pictures! Jayden is a Varsity Football cheer leader as well as a Competitive Allstar Cheerleader. We started her session at her high school with a few cheer photos and then headed to Creekside for more casual looks. After high school Jayden plans to go to one of her Top 3 schools (UC, OU, or BGSU) to study Early Childhood Education to become a Kindergarten teacher.

Here are a few of her favorite images from her session.

Franklin Park Senior Pictures | Columbus Ohio Senior Photographer

I'm so excited to show off Emma's senior pictures! When she told me she wanted to include her dog Linus in her senior session, I was so excited! I LOVE dogs! So Emma's senior session was originally scheduled for the last week in August. There was a 30-40% chance of rain, so I thought we could beat the rain. After getting her hair and makeup done, we headed to Franklin Park Conservatory. About 15 minutes into her session, the rain starts. We weren't a huge fan of my backup plan location so we rescheduled. I'm so glad we did! I love the photos from Emma's session! 

Here a a few of her favorite images!

Bexley Ohio Senior Session | Columbus Ohio Senior Pictures

I'm so excited to introduce Hannah! Hannah is one of my senior models for the Class of 2019! Hannah plays tennis at her high school and at a local tennis club. She is also a member of the marching band. 

For her first session we had planned to go to Jeffrey Park Mansion in Bexley but due to the rain and grey sky, we decided to do a studio session and go outside when the rain stopped. I'm so glad we just went with the flow. We took several photos inside and then went outside and got some amazing shots! I also got to try a new lighting setup outside and I think it really helped the photos pop!

Yellow Styled Session with Anna

I've been wanting to do more studio portraits. So I teamed up with Anna and Hanna again for a fun summer session! The theme for the shoot was yellow. Anna selected several cute outfits from Forever 21 for the session. 

For hair and makeup, I wanted something bold and fun. We went with yellow and orange tones for the eyes and a nude lip. For the hair we did Micky Mouse buns with loose curls!

My Shoot and Share Contest Results & What's Next!

This year I entered 15 photos into the Shoot and Share contest for the first time. The Shoot and Share contest is an annual contest where anyone can enter and vote, also its completely free. You can enter up to 50 photos in 25 categories. You won't know who took the photos until after voting ends. 

Since this was my first year entering, I didn't know what to expect. So I only enter 15 images into the Teens & Senior category. Next year I will enter 50 images and spread it across several of the categories. 

This year there were over 1.1 million photos submitted overall and 29,460 in the teens & senior category. I was very excited to learn that 2 of my photos placed in the Top 20% and another in the Top 30%.

Styled Session - Anna's Winter Wonderland

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of working with the lovely Anna again for a winter snow inspired session! I had never really done a styled session outside of workshops that I've attended & was really excited to try something new and different. I knew Anna would be the perfect person for this! Here are Anna's favorite images from her session!

2018 Words of the Year | Columbus Ohio Senior Photographer

Happy New Year! 2018 is officially here and I'm really excited to see what God has in store for me this year! 2017 was full of so many blessings both personal and business wise. I want to start this year off right so I set a few goals for my business and also decided to add a few words to live by! I narrowed it down to 4 words that I want to focus on throughout the year!

 quote: done is better than perfect

1. DONE!

One thing that I struggle with is procrastination. I will put things off and end up not following through. I believe this is because I want things to be perfect, which hurts me more than it helps me, especially in business. So this year I'm going to get things DONE, even if it's not exactly what I envisioned.

2. Intentional 

I want everything I do this year in my business to be done with purpose. From social media post to senior sessions. One thing I want to do more of this year is styled sessions. I want each styled session to have a purpose and not be something that I just threw together. I want to challenge myself to be more creative and open to new experiences.

 quote: once you become fearless, life becomes limitless.

3. Fearless

I am launching my senior model program this month. This is something that I have been on the fence about since starting my business. I decided to give it a try and I feel like it's better to try and fail then to not try at all. I also want to submit more of my work for publication. One thing that I've been afraid to enter is the Senior Style Guide's Hot 100. This is a list of some of the best senior photographers from all over the country. Every year I make up an excuse not to enter so this year I am going to enter no matter what!

 

4. Content

I know this is something all women do. We love to compare ourselves, our businesses, our relationships, the list goes on! So this year I want to be content with where I am in my senior photography business and in life. I will continue to strive and grow, but I will be more grateful for the portion God has already given me.
