Avon Lake Prom 2016 – Avon Lake Class of 2016 Senior Photographer

Wow. I just can’t believe it. My little baby girl went to prom for the last time! She graduates in a few short weeks. I had a ball shooting her getting ready. When last Saturday took a turn to rain showers,  we had an impromptu photo shoot for friends and their parents in my living room. Special thanks to my honey for moving out all of the furniture and decorations in 20 minutes! With some tears in our eyes, we watched her head down the driveway  to her last prom. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!

Special thank you to Mademoiselle Boutique for helping Genevieve find the perfect dress!

 

I loved having her friends over… Since when do seniors looks so sophisticated and beautiful?

Nugget was not impressed with the Prom photoshoot, and he turned down Genevieve’s invitation to come with.

 

What a fine upstanding young man, flashing his credentials before they hit the road…. :)

Genevieve, Avon Lake Class of 2016, Cleveland Senior Photographer

Its no secret that Genevieve is the most amazing assistant Karen Menyhart Photography has. This year is Genevieve’s senior year.   Genevieve helps with all of the senior shoots we do. Genevieve works every wedding schlepping gear, helping with lighting, and shooting a camera on her own. When It came time to do Genevieve’s senior pics, we knew they had to be different .

We wanted a shoot that said something about her and her passion. Presenting to you dear blog reader, Genevieve’s senior year in working pictures.

I have been documenting Genevieve and her passion for years through my lens. Every shoot she is a light model, or a focus tester, an ice light ninja, or the reflector stuntwomen, and always the punchline of my corny jokes. She faces everything I throw at her with a smile.

During downtime, she’s the creative pose test group. As soon as a shiny new lens  comes out of the box, she’s my go to model.

For every shoot, test run, and candid moments caught this year, I am so grateful and privileged to work with her. I can’t wait to see what she will do with her future through her own lens. I am so proud of my Genevieve, Momma loves you so.

ps- stay tuned for her portrait session in the spring…..

 

Jenna, Avon Lake Class of 2015, May senior shoot, Cleveland Senior Photographer

Sometimes Seniors wait until May before graduation to have their senior portraits taken. I always think this is a fab idea. There are gorgeous flowering trees out in May, and you can only have the flowering trees in your session at that time of year. I had a ball meeting up with Jenna and her Mom , shooting a fun session at the Miller Road Conservatory, Bay Arts and Hunington Beach. Jenna is probably packing up her stuff soon and heading out to Bowling Green. As an alumni of BG, I can tell you Jenna, that you will love it! Best of luck, Go Falcons!

Zoe, Avon Lake High School, Cleveland senior photographer

 

The first thing I noticed about Zoe is her sweet smile. She has a groovy vibe about her. Totally laid back and fun, I had a ball shooting Zoe in her element. Zoe is a true artist. You can tell by the way she dresses and by her creative spirit that she dances to her own inner music. Zoe and her mom contacted me about senior pictures after she graduated from high school.  We created this fab shoot for her in a studio space, across from where she takes art classes in Cleveland. Zoe was at home in this creative space. I took one long look at the huge sunny loft window, and I was in love! The space, the light, and my artsy gal inspired me to create something special for my little artsy muse.
