Lake Erie Senior Pictures

Merissa came to me from Port Clinton, Ohio with some specific ideas about what she wanted to do for her senior portraits.  Growing up on Lake Erie, a series at the shore was a must.  At her consultation, we talked about the available options, and settled on the beach at East Harbor State Park because of it’s perfect orientation for sunset backlighting.  Merissa had ordered this amazing black floral maxi dress and it was the perfect touch of drama in this gorgeous sunset beach setting.

Great Variety at a Single Location

To economize on time, we shot all of our outdoor sets within close proximity of each other. Knowing that Merissa wanted to incorporate her local beach setting in her senior portraits, we chose a location (East Harbor State Park) that had both a beach AND green spaces.  Minimizing the amount of travel between sets gave us more shooting time, and more variety in Merissa’s final gallery.

As a long-time school and club volleyball player, it was important to Merissa to include her favorite sport in her senior portraits.  We arranged to meet at her school, Port Clinton High School, to capture this quick set.

Highlight Your Interests: Piano Senior Pictures

Merissa is an accomplished pianist as well as an athlete.  To make her session more personalized, we included this short series at Merissa’s church, where we set up some lighting and captured her love of piano.

I am beyond thankful to have had the opportunity to photograph this beautiful young woman.  Many thanks to Merissa and her mom, Dani, for allowing me to play a small part in this exciting time in your lives.
