Robert was the first of my Class of 2018 Seniors to have his session this season. I really didn’t expect him to be to excited or want anything crazy. Anyone that knows Robert, knows that just isn’t his style.
I was pleasantly surprised to find Robert was very cooperative and willing to do what was asked. He even brought along his Varsity jacket in the 85 degree weather, never complaining once about the heat. This made not only me happy, but his mother as well. You see Robert is a very sports oriented guy, especially when it comes to Soccer and Swimming. As you can see on his arm, his Swim team has won their Sectionals just a few times. What you can’t tell is that Robert has been one of the members of their team that made States! Having this included in his session was a great way to capture a big part of who Robert is. I think we were all happy that it wasn’t too hot so we could still capture it.
If you aren’t from Avon you won’t notice that the three locations we visited are all apart of our small town. While close together they were still able to give Robert and his family different looks to their gallery all while representing the place that Robert grew up and where he learned how to play the sports he is now so passionate about.
It was an honor to be a part of this milestone with Robert and his family. I hope that Senior year is amazing and I wish him all the luck in this next journey!
Mychael is a student at Avon High School, one that I hadn’t had the pleasure of meeting until this year. Normally when I have a Senior Session we get right down to business. Mychael and I had a little bit to talk and walk the area. I was so honored to have this time to talk to him and share stories as well. I had such a delightful morning just discussing with Mychael the things I had learned growing up that I felt changed my life once I left school. I remember thinking how surprised I was to have these discussions with someone I didn’t even know. But by the end of the session, it made total sense. Much like a friend of mine has always said, “sometimes you meet someone that was placed on your path for a purpose, or sometimes they were placed on yours, either way you were destined to meet for someone to learn something.”
Meet Ryan! Another soon to be graduate of HFL and hockey player too! He came ready to do whatever was necessary to kill his session. We hadn’t actually met until his session and to say that we were laughing through it all is an understatement. I had a great time with him and his mother- who was a complete riot by the way! I always love to meet parents who are as goofy as I am. 🙂 I am so thankful to Trevor for sending his Best Friend to me, these guys were so much fun to shoot!
Meet Trevor! This guy was totally unexpected. After talking with Mom, I really thought I would have a Senior guy on my hands that DID NOT enjoy having his photos taken. Much to both Mom & I’s surprise, Trevor was awesome. Not only did totally cooperate but he had some ideas of his own and even entertained his mother and I being goofy. We hit a few different spots to get all that we wanted covered for Trevor, as you can see we have a variety! Unfortunately this guy had to miss his Senior Hockey Season due to hip surgery but rumor has it that Golf Season is going to be on FIRE! Go get ’em Trevor!
Meet Jake, I think it is safe to bet that one day he will be known as Dr. Jake, or Dr. Mesi, not kidding! I have known this guy since he was so young and to see him grow into this amazing young man is beyond words. He not only is sweet, kind and compassionate, he is so smart and has humongous dreams! Jake he wants to be a Neurosurgeon and he wants to go into Research and make a difference for others. Some day I will be able to say I took Senior photos for Dr. Mesi, changer of life as we know it! 😉
This session had to be the most fun yet! If you have never been to the George Eastman House and visited their gardens- it is a must! Add it to your list, seriously. We had Amy’s session there and it was fantastic! Not only was the scenery amazing, but she just killed it- EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. She came prepared with 4 outfit changes complete with shoes and accessories and each one suited a side of her. I was so honored to get to know Amy and capture these moments for her. Bonus: She comes with a Momma that knows her stuff. I see where Amy gets it, she knew just how to help and made the session that much more fun. This session will go down in the books for sure!
