DAYTON, OHIO SENIOR PORTRAITS - DOROTHY - CLASS OF 2017, SPRINGBORO

THIS ONE. This girl and this session... both give me life. I met Dorothy once prior to her shoot and she was rocking this old jacket of her mother's that very few could pull off... and I immediately knew she was super cool and that we'd have a great time together. But she's one of those that I just connected with and we were immediately friends. She has incredible style but also has a carefree, FUN, and confident personality. She's the perfect example of how when you relax, trust me to capture YOU, and move for the camera, you'll end up with a ton of amazing images and all with a lot of variety (and an amazing wardrobe helps that, too!). Dorothy, I just love you and I'm still obsessed with everything about your shoot!

DAYTON, OHIO SENIOR PORTRAITS - LAUREN - CLASS OF 2017, BISHOP FENWICK

I had to post Lauren's session next because she's a perfect example of how to simply style and personalize your session! Confetti, balloons, tribute flag & tags, and an incredible floral crown made by (the best in the biz) Sherwood Florist, to go along with her Free People kaftan. It all made her session even more special and unique to her. Often when people mention bringing "props" it sounds posed or inauthentic, but incorporating meaningful/fun items actually adds to the shoot, in a simple, tasteful way. I LOVE all of these elements, and how they bring out Lauren's fun personality!
