Senior photography session | Olentangy Orange HS, class of 2021
This next school year will bring unique adventures for all of us – especially our seniors – as they navigate the ever-changing school landscape, while making the most of their last year of high school. As summer draws to an end, our upcoming class of 2021 graduates will begin to schedule many important milestones… and we can’t wait to kick off senior portrait season!
I’ve been lucky enough to know Leah for a few years now and was SO happy when we scheduled her senior pictures. Not only is she GORGEOUS (I mean, just look at her!), she is also kind, genuine and incredibly entertaining… she makes me laugh and always sees the brighter side of life. Our first attempt didn’t last long as the rain rolled in and our session was shortened, but our second night gave us perfect weather and beautiful light. Although it was nearly impossible to narrow down her gallery and choose my favorites, I finally managed to do so… check out some favorites from Leah’s summer senior session!
One of Leah’s besties joined us too, so of course I had to snap a few of these cuties together…
Looking forward to this school year and fingers crossed, it goes as smooth and “normal” as possible!
Olentangy Senior Photography Session | Lewis Center, Ohio
Here is our second senior for today’s two-part feature of some 2019 grads we couldn’t leave out! Lauren is just about the sweetest girl you may ever meet. Kind, compassionate, fun and full of life, she is a bright light with a gorgeous smile. Her flawless style along with a few personal touches – flowers and guitar included – perfectly personalized her session. The fall colors were in full effect and the golden sun came through strong as it set, my absolute favorite way to end any session. Wishing Lauren all the best this year as she heads out into our great big world!
Sidenote: I got to know Lauren and her sister through Orange HS over the years and it has been such a pleasure! I had to share some of these more “behind the scenes” memories… maybe not your typical gallery favorites, but ones I will always remember… Lauren’s love of yoga, life and laughter, the sisterly giggles and even the eye rolls. OOHS will miss you Lauren! And Sara you’d better come to visit next year! xo
When life gets hectic… we don’t always make time to blog! Now that we are moving into the most popular time of year for senior photos – late summer and early fall – we wanted to showcase two beautiful grads from 2019 that we adored working with.
This first senior is Maddy and although she’s a Dublin graduate, we met in old Worthington. Both her and mom wanted a short, simple and sweet senior session. We popped around to a few different spots, incorporated her passion for guitar and were even lucky enough to catch a beautiful sunset. Maddy made it easy to capture her natural beauty and the session was a short and simple success! Here are some favorites…
We’ve photographed this fun-loving family for years – since their oldest was just an itty bitty. I always enjoy seeing them and capturing their playful personalities! We got some traditional portraits, but my favorites will always be the candids. The moment when momma’s little girl cuddles into her a little closer. When dad carries the boys around on his back. When the oldest needs a moment to cheer up before the “click.” We had a blast giggling, playing, jumping, “squishing” each other in cuddles and soaking in the golden sunlight. Here are a few favorites from our sunset session…
I’m not sure what I loved most about this amazing session because so many things made my heart happy! The fact that the momma and I have been close friends for almost 30 years & playing with her littles gives me joy. The gorgeous farm setting full of lots of candid opportunities for the kids to play and spark genuine smiles. Or the golden sun that surprised us at the end of a cloudy day. I’m always honored when friends trust me with their family photos because hanging out at the session feels like just that… hanging out! Here are some favorites from our perfectly golden, perfectly joyful sunset session.
This session only lasted about 10 minutes. Not pictured are the in-between melt downs our youngest had every few minutes and my oldest asking when we’d be done so he could change out of his jeans. We rolled with it, did a lot of tickling and got them to cooperate just long enough to take advantage of the beautiful golden light. When you have kids between the ages of 0-5, you never know how a session will go!
These pictures literally make me tear up. For so many reasons. I’m thankful to have a sister who loves us enough to take our photos several times per year. She’s so good at getting the kids to laugh & she captures the little moments that I want to document forever. I’m blessed to have children who fill my heart with joy. I often wish I could freeze time and keep them little, but I know there are exciting memories to be made as they grow up. And even after several years of marriage, figuring out how to parent two little ones, juggling multiple jobs & schedules, surviving on very little sleep… the stress of life has only made me love my husband more. He sometimes makes me crazy, but he always makes me laugh. 🙂
As we move into the holiday season, we want all of our clients – many of whom have become friends – to know how thankful we are to have this business and be able to capture moments like this for you. Laughing as a family. And maybe sometimes crying. We hope you have a wonderful holiday, a Merry Christmas and in case we don’t see you, a Happy New Year!
The Robinson Family has been visiting us since their oldest was their tiniest. 🙂 We love working with them, laughing with them & just hanging out with them! The golden sun was perfect and this was another successful fall mini session at one of our favorite locations. Enjoy a peek!
This lovely family came to us from Texas, first doing little man’s one year cake smash session back in April. We were happy to see them again for a fall family lifestyle session! They were all over the idea of just playing and laughing. Smiles, looking for frogs & ducks, walks in the woods, throwing rocks, playing with sticks, running through mud & leaves… all the things that little boys are made of. 🙂 The sunset was perfectly golden and we had a wonderful session together!
Another fun family, another golden hour session. We’ve considered ONLY shooting at sunset… however, we know its sometimes hard to keep the little ones up that late. But it is oh-so-worth it! We had a blast hiking, twirling, playing freeze tag & laughing as the sun set on this gorgeous fall evening. Wish this weather would last forever!

We have been working with “miss Natalie” and her family since LBP started. We love seeing them each year, smiling and laughing our session away. Little Alex is a bit harder to chase around, but we do our best to capture his natural energy and big personality! Love how this session turned out and can’t wait to see them for years to come!
