Back in 2009, I photographed Lindsay for her senior portraits at Creekside in Gahanna. A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to photograph her “little” brother for his senior photos at the same location. I was happy to hear that mom, Kathy, was so pleased with her daughter’s portraits that they decided to return for her son’s portraits this year.
We stumbled upon the most amazing Indian Summer day in late October for his photos. It was over 80 degrees that day and it was amazing weather. We were lucky to get his senior portrait session in when we did, just two days later the Ohio weather changed and it dropped to the 50’s with rain kicking in too. Since everyone knows what a dog lover I am, they surprised me with a little four legged visitor for the session as well! Christian had wanted to include his dog in a few photographs. I enjoy the fact that more and more seniors that I photograph have been including their pets into their senior photos.
Christian plays baseball for the Gahanna Lincoln High School Lions and brought along his jersey and some baseball gear to include in his portraits. We also made a special stop after we were finished with photos at Creekside. We dropped in at the gym where he works out. The two big things in his life right now, are baseball and the gym. I captured some images of him in the weight room for some unique senior photos. It is always fun to include the different activities that are important to each of the seniors that I photograph for an original portrait experience.
Christian was so natural and relaxed for his session. We had a good time walking around the plaza and the park with his mom picking out different locations for variety in his pictures. It was a great time working with this family again and I am so glad that they are return clients!
