Class of 2024 Seniors, congratulations! You’ve made it!

We are so happy to have captured some special senior portraits of some of the greatest kids in Northeast Ohio. (and beyond, thanks Ben!) While we mainly focus on younger kiddos day to day, we absolutely love photographing high school seniors!

Early in my career, I photographed seniors pretty much every day and then went on to focus on weddings and eventually babies and toddlers when I created Black Dog Photo Co and then Blush. Now that my children are getting older, I love interacting with the seniors again because they are often older siblings of our kiddo’s friends or amazing returning family portrait clients who have grown up in front of my eyes. This year, I even had the absolute pleasure of photographing my sweet nephew Ben. (and yes, of course, there were tears from the world’s proudest Aunt Sissy)

I love to chat about their dreams, after-school plans, and current high school activities. Wow, these kids are busy these days! So many of these talented kids balance multiple sports, more than one musical instrument, an impressive school load, and part-time jobs. With this dedication, I know they will all go far in the real world.

It’s really fun to find interesting spots for senior portraits based on the student’s personalities. Whether they were looking for a city feel in Downtown Cleveland, the Riverfront area in Cuyahoga Falls, or the beautiful fall colors in Peninsula, we were able to find a special spot for everyone. We always welcome anything that helps the seniors show off their personalities, whether it is incorporating pets, instruments, or even the occasional younger sibling!

Spring is coming, and I am excited to announce our Easter Mini Sessions! Welcome warmer weather and the joy of the Easter season with one or all of our whimsical sets.

Easter Mini Photoshoot Cuyahoga Falls

I have created three one-of-a-kind sets for this year here in our Cuyahoga Falls studio. No worrying about spring showers or unpredictable weather interfering with your session date! I will have two dates this year: April 1st and 2nd with morning and afternoon appointments.

Click here to book your spot today!

Set #1 Floral Spring

This light and airy set is perfect for the whole family or children in their beautiful spring attire. Soft floral accents accent our brick wall for a timeless look.

Set #2 Garland Wall

This sweet and simple greenery wall is perfect for an adorable Easter portrait of your little ones. Due to the size, this is recommended for children only under the age of 10.

Set #3 Easter Kitchen

By special request, we will have a cooking making set! This interactive set is a great way to capture sugar cookie baking fun that is a beloved Smas family Easter tradition. This light and airy set is perfect for whole families or children on their own. While we will not use frosting with this set, children are encouraged to play with flour, rolling pins, etc. *If you prefer that your children do not get messy or come into contact with food, please reach out to Ashley prior to the session so that she can plan alternative items for the set.

Our Easter Mini sessions includes a 20 minute appointment and includes a private gallery with print copyrights to print and share as you wish. Not sure what to wear for your portraits? Check out this blog with ideas on what to wear for your session!

Is it time to update your business headshots?

Updated professional business headshots on your website are an important tool. A great business headshot ensures you’re making the best first impression possible. You should feel good about your personal brand and what potential clients or employers are thinking when they see your image. A quality headshot will make you more appealing online, and you’ll be able to present yourself in a professional manner. I am hosting a special business headshot session day to help busy professionals get their portraits scheduled.

 This is the perfect opportunity to update your LinkedIn profile photo, add a new look to your portfolio for speaking engagements, or simply update your professional headshot. You will love the ease of posing and the different looks you can get in one quick session.

Our February 18th sessions include a 20 Minute Photo Session and one final edited high res image of your choice. This session includes print and usage releases for personal and professional use. Additional photos are available for purchase. The spots are limited, please book a spot today!
