I met Monai and her mom over at Wade Park by University Circle for a mid-week photoshoot and it was a surprisingly, GORGEOUS Cleveland May day! I forget how much I love this part of Cleveland and we found lots of fun little nooks and crannies to take some fun images of the beautiful Monai.  I swear she must have been keeping up with her America’s Next Top Model, because I barely had to even direct her.  I loved it!  This Horizon Science Academy grad knew how to work the “smize”! haha.  So here are a few of my favorites from the afternoon.  Enjoy!

See? She knew what she was doing! haha

 

Stunning!

 

Loved these doors that we found

 

We lucked out when we found this cute little alcove for some fun shots

 

We stopped by the Peter B. Lewis building for some pics too. Love her smile here.

 

I loved the contrast of the bright green against her white, navy, and red clothing choices.

 

Working the model walk. 😉

 

The next Ms. Tyra Banks?? You all heard it here first! Haha.

 

One last shot with some pretty backlight. 🙂

Congrats Monai!

When you think senior portraits, you typically start to think about taking some summertime photos.  Not the case for EJ!  His mom held off on getting his portraits in hopes of finding someone that would truly catch her son’s character.  When she contacted me about setting up a December date to take EJ’s photos, I was more than happy to oblige. 

We ended up heading over to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park to take some photos around the Peninsula Depot of the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad , a few shots by the Winking Lizard Tavern, then we made a quick trip over to Camp Butler and to the old abandoned Players Barn off of Route 303.  Here are some of my favorites from our brisk December session.

Santa's new assistant?

 

Hmm...contemplating one of their juicy burgers for dinner later?

EJ enjoys taking photos too, and I'm betting he's good at it just based on his ease and ability in front of the camera

 

Such a dashingly handsome young man.

At my fav location of the day - Players Barn

 

So many fun shots here

 

EJ would totally fit in with all those Abercrombie boys

 

Would you ever believe that it was around 30 degrees that day? Yeah, he made it look effortless with his posing!

 It was great spending the day finding all kinds of fun locations around Peninsula, EJ.  Best of luck in the remainder of your senior year!

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to meet up with Jackie at Coulby Park in Wickliffe, Ohio.  What a cool park and some great photo opportunities (we saw a few other seniors getting photos taken there as well!)

It's funny how the 1st shot of the day always seems to be one of my favorites!

She didn't think she could pull of a good serious face.  I think she nailed it here.
