Daisy, a soon to be 2017 graduate of Danbury High School, was a joy to work with! With an amazing sense of style and personality to match, she helped to kick start what ended up being an amazing group of 2017 Northwest Ohio seniors I photographed over the summer and fall.
A long time resident of Danbury, Ohio Daisy grew up spending her summers at the ever popular and picturesque Lakeside, Ohio. Now as a teenager and high school student Daisy is employed at both the bike shop and fan favorite Sloopy's located within the community of Lakeside. When it came time to choose a location for her summer senior portraits, Lakeside was the undeniable choice!
During the summer months I shoot sunset sessions rather often along the shores of Lake Erie; therefore, I knew I wanted to end our session on the pier and alongside the rock lined beach. With that information, we started our session at the fun (and colorful) old school house.
After a quick outfit change into this flattering, short summer dress and we made great use of the abundant summer greenery before heading "downtown" where I had noticed some beautifully planted flower beds upon my arrival. Daisy's magenta colored dress was a lovely contrast to the yellow flowers!
With another outfit selection, the sun was beginning to set. Daisy's neutral, yet playful bib overalls were perfect for this location where brightly colored kayaks were gathered. The warm light here was just amazing. Not far from the kayaks (and right across from the bike shop where Daisy and Mom work in the summer) was a stunning red barn wall that just called out to us before Daisy changed into her final outfit.
Daisy selected a classic "little black dress" for her final outfit. Earlier during our session, Daisy made mention of a front porch she has always admired within the Lakeside community. She indicated that she also loved the American Flag that proudly hangs on the front of the home as well. After a quick knock on the door and approval from the home owner we captured a few beautiful images on the steps before moving on.
Working it ...
As the sun was setting we ended Daisy's senior session as I intended...on the pier with the waters of Lake Erie behind her before a final set of images among the grand rocks that line the beach shore. From start to finish this session was nothing short of perfect!
A huge thank you to Daisy and her mom for a fun session full of laughter! Daisy, I wish you the very best during the final months of your senior year at Danbury High School. You have already accomplished so much at a young age and I know greater things await you!
