Karla, Magnificat Class of 2016, Late Summer Senior Shoot

Meet Karla, she’s one of my daughter’s dearest friends. Over the years, I have watched her grow up into a beautiful young woman, inside and out. Karla, Gen and I went out to take some after senior photographs of her.

We has so much fun running around downtown Cleveland . One surprise we didn’t plan on was the weather on the Cleveland water front. High winds did not stop the shoot! We had a ton of fun shooting through then. I m glad the winds hit, because you get to see some genuine smiles and the lovely personality that is Karla!

When I graduated from High School, I had photos taken with my best friend in our caps and gowns. I thought Gen and Karla might like that as well.

Gen and Karla brought theirs along as well. The wind was so strong, it was blowing Gen over! I was laughing so hard I was crying during this part of the shoot….

We finished up this fun shoot in Downtown Cleveland, on East. 4th street and the House of Blues.

Best of Luck at Ohio State this fall! I love you like my own! I can’t wait to see the amazing things you will accomplish Karls!
