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!

Erin , Magnificat Class of 2016

Meet Erin, Magnificat Class of 2016. Ive known this beautiful young lady since Kindergarten! I had to pinch myself , while shooting her Senior photos. Where has the time gone?

I loved spending time with you Erin during our shoot, and Im so thankful we’ve known you forever! Good Luck at Ohio University next fall!

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…..

 

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.
