Life's not about the breaths you take, but about the moments that take your breath away.
When Shari's mom called to schedule Shari's senior session, I have to admit I was a little excited. She had a ton of great ideas about where she wanted to go and the outfits and props she wanted to incorporate into her shoot. When the day of her session arrived, being that we live in Cleveland where the weather changes by the hour, the day was looking a little iffy with the possibility of rain a major factor. But, the rain stayed away and turned out to be one of those perfectly overcast days where the lighting is absolutely incredible. Perfect for portraits!
We started Shari's session out by the railroad tracks and were lucky enough to find these amazing piles of railroad ties along side which made for an amazing background. Next stop of the day was the old dilapidated barn. I don't know what it is, maybe growing up in Iowa and seeing them everywhere, but I just love old barns. The weathered wood siding with its incredible texture and colors, the overgrown greenery around them, and the unusual menagerie of items that you inevitably find in and around them are truly unique.
Yes, that horseshoe just happened to be there, see what I'm talking about with old barns. Shari has these amazing big brown eyes, along with both a killer smile and a serious look, her images turned absolutely amazing!
Next stop, and this is the best yet, as we were driving to the barn we noticed this really cool piece of old farm machinery in this front yard, so on our way back we stopped to ask if we could use it for her senior portraits, to which they absolutely agreed, plus they had a tire swing and honestly who doesn't love a tire swing!!
Shari, I had an amazing time documenting your Senior Year through portraits!! As you enter your Senior Year I wish you nothing but success and happiness in all of your future endeavors!!
