Ryan, a 2017 graduate of Clyde High School, was easily one of my favorite Northwest Ohio Seniors to work with this past year! Why? This handsome, athletic Clyde Senior also happens to be my cousin. Truth be told, I am still in denial that my youngest cousin (and former ring bearer in my wedding who was cuuuuuute) is about to graduate; however, I am so excited for what the future holds for him! Ryan and his family were open to my suggestion of shooting in a handful of the areas in which he grew up. In doing so, I was given the opportunity to shoot in a variety of locations that were new to me.
The night of Ryan's session in his hometown of Green Springs I spotted these amazing red doors while in route to his house. When shooting high school seniors I am continuously looking for various textures and colors to photograph my clients in front of. I love making a location most would not think twice about into something creative and unique!
Along the same street as the rich red doors was an aged brick wall. Before hopping in our cars and heading to our next location, we captured the next set of images. Ryan stayed in his classic v-neck tee with jeans, but by quickly adding layering on a plaid shirt we had a new look for his gallery in no time at all!
From there we made the short drive to Clyde's Community Park. Photographing Ryan at this location was extra special as he played endless hours of baseball there during his youth. With lush green grass, covered bridges, and a large pond we easily came across beautiful views that we could incorporate into Ryan's images.
Ryan is a multi sport athlete at Clyde High School who has excelled in football, wrestling, and baseball during the last four years (let's be real...he was kicking butt prior to that as well ;) ). We captured some of his final images for the evening by photographing him in his Varsity Jacket and favorite Clyde Fliers pullover at his high school.
With very little light remaining we ended our evening on a small brick road that I had noticed earlier in the evening. Again, I am always eager to find alluring textures to work with and challenging myself to provide my clients with unique images.
Thank you Ryan, Aunt Barb, and Cheyenne for a fun filled evening! It was an honor documenting this special time in Ryan's life. Ryan, it has been a pleasure to watch you grow over the years. I pray that my 5 sons have the heart, drive, and determination that you show as they continue in their own lives. Thank you for being such an awesome role model! Wishing you the very best during this next phase in your life!
