Marissa’s Senior Photography Session
A recent trip back east gave me an opportunity to do another senior photography session. Although this was a trip to visit family, I was excited to mix a little work with pleasure. This time my subject was my lovely grandniece, Marissa. Marissa’s easy going personality was so refreshing and her patience for “one more shot” was too. Her beautiful red hair was a striking contrast to the lush greenery all around. It really was more fun than work to photograph her.
Ohio is always green in the summer – especially compared to the dry western summers in Colorado. However, a particularly wet summer provided even more greenery than usual and it ensured some beautiful backdrops for this High School senior photography session. Finding a dry day to do this session was a bit of a challenge, however. Constant rain dampened my two week visit, but we were determined to find a break in the clouds and take advantage of the lush greenery and abundant flowers that Ohio has to offer. Between raindrops, we were able to do the shoot in two sessions and only get a little damp. Oglebay Park in Wheeling, WVA was the location for many of the photographs as well as surrounding areas in Ohio.
