Over the weekend I had the pleasure of working with Kenzi a 2019 senior from Reynoldsburg High School for a fun photoshoot at a local coffee shop here in Columbus. I had never been to The Roosevelt Coffeehouse but had seen that a lot of people go there to work, hangout & study. I also love that they are supporting the efforts to help those who are affected by unclean water, hunger and human trafficking.
There were a few things I noticed during my time there. First it was PACKED! I didn't take into consideration that it was finals week & there are two local colleges in the area. Even though it was crowded we were still able to find a table & even got a window seat soon after to take some cool shots. Second the staff was AMAZING! I had contacted someone from their Instagram a few days before to get permission to take pictures there. They were so friendly and welcoming. Ordering was fast and easy! I will definitely be going back soon for hot chocolate since I'm not a coffee drinker.
We started Kenzi's shoot in the coffeehouse and finished outside. I'd been wanting to try shooting through a window for a while so I'm glad I got the opportunity to do so. Next time I will try to time it so there are no cars parked in front, but I am pleased with the results.
We decided to try an impromptu Ugly Location Challenge. I definitely want to try this again with a senior model! It was a lot of fun and challenged me to be creative and look at things differently.
