The past few weeks, I’ve had the opportunity of photographing some great seniors…from football players to a city girl, the best thing about these sessions is how unique they are to the individual.  Mike is a senior in Salem and an amazing athlete (I’ve been told).  So we headed to Reilly Field for a few shots in his jersey and then to the park for what I like to call the mom shots.  You know the guys…most want the “tough” shot, but mom is going to make them dress up for a few and why shouldn’t she.  It’s a parent’s last chance to get their child to take pictures the way they want them to look.  🙂  Both turned out great.  Thank you, Diana, for returning to me this year with your second graduating son.  It was a total pleasure!

The wall was painted white, so this worked out perfect!

I met with Sarah + Erik with the intent to shoot their engagement session at the Foxburg Inn – the gorgeous site of their wedding next year.  Only neither of us realized the Foxburg Festival was that weekend – scratch that.  Hundreds of people everywhere could make for some interesting photos, but not quite what they (or myself) had in mind.  We headed up the road to an old church I had been told about just weeks earlier.  It was perfect.

Loved this couple's style.

Sarah's black pearl engagement ring was very cool. 🙂

Looking forward to their vintage themed wedding in Fall, 2011!

 

These two cuties were perfect for an urban session in Youngstown.  I loved how their mom dressed them and they were so fun!  🙂

Gotta love their little chucks!

Ever meet a person that’s just so sweet, you immediately want to be their friend?  That’s how I would describe both Amy & Brian.  I think if you asked any of their friends or family, they will probably tell you the same.  And their love for each other?  Well, check out the images…I think you can see that sweetness for yourself.

Fall colors for three adorable little flower girls.

Love how Brian is checking out his ring here.

A lot of fun with this crew.

The lighting that night provided by Special Light was spectacular!

There were so many cookies - they took up two tables. Yum! 🙂

Brian & Amy heading to the floor for their 1st dance as husband and wife.

Check out the bubbles in the background. Although, I don't think these two noticed them. 😉

Amy & her proud father.

Both of Brian's grandmas were so cute and they were dancing all night long!

The House Band kept the dance floor full.

Congratulations, Amy & Brian!  It was a blast working with you and we wish you a lifetime of happiness.  🙂

When I met Dan and Megan initially, they were just coming back into town from vacation and they missed their Teddy.  After meeting Teddy, I can see why.  Teddy is a shar pei/boxer mix and completely adorable.  I love to mix it up for engagement sessions and was excited to have him along for the first part of theirs.  The  morning sun that day was amazing and the results were beautiful and so unique.  I had a great time with all three of them and am looking forward to the wedding next Spring!

I really love the light here.

They're such a cute family. 🙂

Megan threw a penny in here for good luck...

I'd rather be next to normal anyday. 🙂
