Waking up early for sessions is always worth it when it means spending time with incredibly sweet seniors like Sydney! This lovely gal and I spent the morning around some of the most beautiful places around Youngstown and Niles for her senior session, and laughing the entire time!
I’m a huge goof ball, if you know me or have ever worked with me. And for what I do, that works very well because it means I get the best smiles out of my clients. Plus, Sydney already has the cutest little smile!!
We started her session at Fellows Riverside Gardens in Mill Creek. One thing about getting there in the morning is that absolutely no one is there!! I’m all for having the whole place myself! Sydney brought a photo of her grandma, who recently passed away, so she could surprise her dad with a photo of her with the photo for Father’s Day. How sweet is that!! I about cried, that’s for sure. I love when seniors bring meaningful things with them.
After adventuring all around the park, we made our way to the Mill Creek Suspension Bridge, not too far from the Mill. I had her hop on the sides of the bridge for a few shots, and it went so perfectly with her romper.
Our last stop was at The McKinley Memorial Library in Niles, Ohio. While it is usually a little longer of a drive than a lot of my locations, it is probably my favorite place to photograph. The white marble and natural light makes for insanely beautiful photos, and I never get tired of photographing there. We giggled, did some cute hair flips, and wandered around. I didn’t want the session to end!!
I think you can agree we got some pretty precious shots!
Have the best senior year, Sydney!! Your gentle heart and little giggle is going to bring everyone around you so much joy!!
