Megan is a senior in the Class of 2021 at North Canton Hoover High School and she certainly made her senior portrait session her own. We captured so many details to capture all sides of Megan in her portraits. Upon meeting each other on the University of Mount Union Campus in Alliance, we reviewed the outfits and props and goals for the session. That is when I knew that this was going to be fabulous. We start with a touching portrait of Megan holding a picture of herself holding a picture of herself. This is just priceless!
Our next set of portraits allowed us to highlight something very near and dear to Megan's heart. Megan has danced for about 14 years, so it has been a big part of her life. She brought her Canton Jazz Company hoodie so that she could incorporate this. Some actual dance pictures will happen later in the session.
Megan is currently Editor-in-Chief of the school newspaper, The Viking Views. In previous years, she was a copy editor and business manager. We found a way to include these important roles in her portraits, as well. As if dance and the newspaper aren't enough to keep her busy, she is also in French Club, Student Council, Link Crew, Garden Club, Bipartisan Club, and Chess Club.
Megan's friends would describe her as caring and friendly, as well as super outgoing once they get to know her. Her favorite movie is Pride and Prejudice. Niall Horan, as well as the rest of the members from One Direction are favorite music artists. Whenever there is a break from school, Megan will read at least one book from the series The Selection. As you can see, Megan is a multidimensional young lady. So, capturing multiple sides of Megan was certainly our priority. I think that we accomplished our goal!
In our conversations leading up to the session, I learned that Megan loves the rain. We talked about ways to make that part of the session and they were able to find this adorable umbrella which was the source of a lot of fun!
After another wardrobe change, we decided to lose the umbrella and focus on some flowers for inspiration. It really didn't matter where I placed Megan, she graced the setting and created beautiful portraits! These are actually among her favorites.
After a short drive down the road to Glamorgan Castle and an outfit change, we found some new inspiration. I knew this lovely flowered dress would stand out beautifully at the castle, and we were not disappointed.
And now... it was time to bring out the tutu! I am always amazed at the dedication and discipline that dancers are willing to dedicate to their craft. The results amaze me, too!
Megan, I just love who you are and everything about your session. So much thought went into every segment which is why your session is so totally you! The results are so lovely as a reflection of you, indeed. Your love of math and plans to major in math to become a math teacher are so admirable. I wish you all the best and will be cheering you on!
Love and Smiles,
What did Megan have to say about her senior portrait session?
I loved how natural the whole experience felt. Nothing felt forced, and I think the portraits really capture that! I think the portraits all really capture who I am and how I was feeling during the session. I absolutely love all of them!
