Emily is a Senior in the Class of 2022 at Hoover High School and we held her October senior portrait session at Quail Hollow Park in Hartville. She and her bright and shiny personality met me in the parking lot to create our plan for the evening. She made some great color choices for this lovely October backdrop and we jumped in to start creating portraits. With that endearing smile and her easy-going demeanor, I knew this was going to be a fun session.
It is no surprise that Emilee's friends describe her as kind-hearted, strong, independent, and active. As we moved on to Emilee's second outfit, I had to capture those shoes. So cute! I always love it when the wind cooperates and gives us a little movement in the right direction for a flattering frame to her face.
That beautiful smile was coming so naturally in every shot. That made me happy because it meant that we had established a level of comfort that is conducive to authentic portraits. She stands out so beautifully in this lush arbor with a little backlighting.
We moved on to Emilee's third outfit just in time for the perfect angle of light to be hitting the field where we planned to capture her in this soft flannel. I wanted to create an ethereal atmosphere as if she were enjoying a warm sun bath. This pose and her lovely soft smile completed the look.
Emilee plans to attend Akron University where she will pursue her nursing degree. She says that she will not miss high school as she is ready to further her career as a nurse and take care of as many people as she can. She is ready to start a new chapter in her life and to live everyday to the fullest. That sounds like a fabulous plan!
We were ready to wind down our session, so Emilee changed into her final outfit. This blanket scarf is so beautiful. Not only is it incredibly soft, but it inspired lots of cute poses as we really had fun with it.
"I'm glad I chose Laura for the amazing locations and the fun experience. It was different in a good way. It truly showed the image of how I am. Laura was so kind and made me feel so good about myself. She picked the best outfits and really made my session unique to the image I wanted to show."
Emilee, you are an absolute delight! The nursing profession will be so fortunate to have you. You will be touching so many lives. That reassuring smile will be part of your healing touch. I wish you all the best as you embark on this next chapter and live everyday to its fullest.
