Senior: Kaitlyn, Class of 2019

Forest of Pines and Prairie Oaks Fall Session

Shekinah Christian School

I LOVED Kaitlyn’s session! Prior to the session I learned that Kaitlyn is easy going, quiet, and artistic. When I know someone is artistically bent, it frees me a bit more to try unique shots…as you’ll see with the sunlight and her hair in a couple of the pictures! Kaitlyn wanted natural/wooded areas during the fall for her session. Technically, fall is very late in this part of Ohio and there wasn’t much fall colored foliage yet, BUT somehow all the colors, sunlight, and browns collided beautifully into a fall work of art! 

Senior: Ben, Class of 2019

Downtown Columbus Ohio

Shekinah Christian School

I’ve had the privilege of photographing all four of the Hershberger kids for their senior portraits, which means I was SUCH A NEWBIE when I photographed Ben’s oldest sister quite a few years ago…eeek! (Thank you to Ben’s mom, Sharla, for giving me the chance back then and NOW!! 😉 ) And now the youngest of the family, Ben, is graduating!!

Ben is tenacious, quiet, and yet has quite the sense of humor. He is currently doing both high school and college studies as he prepares to pursue Physical Therapy after graduation. He is also on the golf, basketball, and baseball teams at Shekinah Christian School, with his favorite sport being basketball. Many blessings, Ben, as you serve God in your future!

P.S. I just had to share a throw back picture that’s pretty special to me (be sure to see the pic at the end of the blog post!) When my youngest son was born Ben, his dad, Brian, who was the pastor of our church, and brother John Michael came to the hospital to visit me and AJ. How neat to watch Ben grow over the years!

Senior: Rachel, Class of 2019

Barnyard and Prairie Oaks Session

Jonathan Alder High School

This summer I had the privilege of meeting Rachel at a local ministry, DNA Community Center. She was giving of her time to interact with children to show them Christ’s love. What an amazing way to spend part of the summer!

Fast forward a few month…it was a privilege to take Rachel’s senior pictures! We started at a barn and while we were taking the pictures I asked Rachel, “Are you a cowgirl?” The answer was “yes!” She also wanted to use a creek, so I found myself almost up to my knees in the water! Haha!

Many blessings to you, Rachel, as you continue to serve the Lord with all of your talents and abilities!

Senior: Anthony, Class of 2019

Plain City, Ohio

Shekinah Christian School

One of the best things about outdoor sessions is they can be customized to fit the person’s personality, activities, and likes. Anthony’s session was exactly this! We started in the country with his four wheeler where he often rides. Then he wanted pictures with his car and chose a nearby covered bridge. We ended in Plain City with a bit of a brick-look. Anthony chose all of these location…just what he wanted!

Senior: Jessica, Class of 2019

The Short North and Scioto Mile, Columbus Ohio

Plainview Christian School

Jessica had such a fun and color-filled session in Columbus! She was a natural in front of the camera!

Thank you, Jessica, for allowing me to take your senior pictures! Many blessings as you serve the Lord…He has great plans for you!

Senior: Rachel, Class of 2019

Jeffrey Mansion and Scioto Mile, Columbus Ohio

West Liberty-Salem High School

Rachel has such a contagious smile! Her friends would describe her as goofy and energetic. She loves to play soccer and her favorite place to hang out is wherever her family is (can I say how much I love this and it warms my heart!!) After high school Rachel plans to attend West Liberty University and earn an undergraduate degree in Art Therapy. Her love for art showed up in her session as we tried to find art/graffiti walls in Columbus.

Blessings to you, Rachel, as you serve God in the adventures He has planned for you!

Senior: Jalee, Class of 2019

Downtown Columbus, Ohio

It’s my pleasure to introduce you to Jalee! First, let’s get the name straight…I’m not quite sure how to correctly insert the sound bits, but here’s a try…it sounds like “j-u-lee” not “j-A-lee.” Jalee is a french name and pretty cool, if you ask me! 🙂

Jalee loves to be around people. She’s athletic, friendly, and hard working. I haven’t been around Jalee much, but what little I’ve been privileged to be in her presence I get the feeling she add a spark to life and is a joy to be around!

Congrats on graduating, Jalee! Many blessings in the adventures God has ahead for you!
