Tree Lined Hills and History Lined Streets ....

Tree Lined Hills and History Lined Streets ....

This Handsome guy and his beautiful Momma met me at Devou Park on a warm Sunday evening.  The weather was beautiful and we were able to freely enjoy the park as we wandered into several spots from the Behringer-Crawford Museum to Rotary Grove.  The park was bustling with folks, many of whom were enjoying a good game of golf in the unseasonably warm weather.  From there we found ourselves on the old brick roads of downtown Covington, where we admired the gorgeous architecture and character that was around each corner.  We could hear Reds fans cheering across the river as they watched their favorite team in the last game of the season.  I genuinely enjoyed the great conversation and ease of our walk with these two.  It was easy to see with these genuinely kind and brilliant folks that "beauty and handsome" aren't only skin deep in this fantastic family.  Thank you, Tina and Mason, for the wonderful time and for the opportunity to photograph the start of this new season for you all.   I look forward to round two on the Soccer Field with you both! ~ B

Leaning Into A Legacy ....

Leaning Into A Legacy ....

Sharon Woods provided a shady backdrop for this gorgeous Senior and her beautiful Mom as we spent a couple of hours together the other night.  Many folks had the same idea and hovered around the water and bridges as we found our way wondering the open green-ways.  The weather was perfect for our long walks and this pair was up for the challenge.  It was easy to gather that this blonde beauty is a hard worker bent on doing well in her efforts, from tennis play to a heavy load of AP courses but she had an ease about her that made me feel what would be overwhelming for another is a cinch for this gal.  The ambition is evident when she speaks and the love of loyalty and family big as she speaks of the potential of heading to The University of Virginia for her college education, following in the footsteps of her parents and brothers, a genuine and very rare legacy.  P & S, I wish you great adventures in this new chapter of life and trust that the sky is the limit for you!  Thank you for allowing me to wander with you both and grab a few pictures in this wonderful season for you! ~ B

Dancing among the concrete daisies ...

What a beautiful Cincinnati night we had with this session.  The sun placed perfectly above the high rise buildings as we meandered through the city streets.  This girly was at ease in our wandering and moved gracefully in and out of each shot.  We were not short on spots because she brightened them all with her sunny disposition and positive outlook on life.  Walking with this senior and her beautiful Momma was a pleasure, Mom even willing to watch for oncoming traffic, scare the birds for a shot and wander for blocks on a hot Summer evening.  Penny and Mikayla, thank you so much for your time and support.  It was wonderful meeting you both and I genuinely look forward to more time with each of you!

Home ...

Another early morning shoot and I found myself in the beautiful backyard of this lovely senior. The grass still wet from the crazy weather we'd had the night prior and the sun peeked just around the corner of the house.  We moved about their landscaped haven of living stories, chasing the light as it stretched further and further into the day.  I could easily see why this was a sentimental place for Mom & Dad, despite the obvious comfort of "home", this gorgeous girl, their last, headed off to college in some short months.  We wandered the very yard she used to tip toe about in as a wee kid, climbing, racing and finding refuge in a treehouse formerly positioned in the exact tree we took pictures around.  We found ourselves in the chairs gathered around a fire pit that I am sure has seen many late night memories for this endearing family.  It was a calm morning, with a quiet that permeated everything as Mom stayed close and kept an attentive eye on her blue eyed beauty.  Such a bittersweet season for sure!  Kathy & Kirsten, thank you for welcoming me into your space and allowing me the opportunity to capture your portraits.  I greatly enjoyed the time at your wonderful home with you two and I wish you both great success in the coming year and beyond! ~ B

And so the adventure begins ...

And so the adventure begins ...

Alms Park, such a treasure in this beautiful city.  One side has sweeping views of Lunken and the other follows the curves of the great Ohio River.  We arrived on a day the clouds hung low with the crisp Summer sun dodging them like a quick game of peek-a-boo.  These five college bound friends laughed their way through a sweltering humidity in a sweet way.  Their interactions allowing one to see how genuine their love over one another.  Years together turned graduated and headed for college.  This bittersweet season hangs between the young girl in a prized twirly dress, catching lighting bugs on the breezes of Summer to a young lady lightly stepping from one side of the door to the other and into a great big world awaiting her greatness!  Jean de La Fontaine once said, "Rare as is true love, true friendship is rarer" ... I am sure these beauties, though they move beyond these days of friendship, understand their gift in each other and I don't think change, distance or adventure will change that.  I wish you beautiful ladies great success in your new endeavor, know that you are amazing and that this is only the beginning of something really beautiful! ~ B

Urban Summer Nights ....

Urban Summer Nights ....

One of the hottest evenings of the year had nothing on these beautiful gals. We enjoyed a leisurely stroll through a busy downtown Cincinnati alongside a few hundred other folks with the sound of salsa music echoing from Fountain Square.  Several spots I'd planned on were unavailable to us but it was nothing to find a new and great locale in this gorgeous city, even an empty  and dismal parking garage. These three were truly a lovely addition to the urban views.  Sincerely enjoyed another wonderful night with these gorgeous seniors!

First 2017 Senior Model Session of the Season ...

These two beauties met me on a hot evening in Glenwood Gardens.  We spent our time wandering the beautiful park, easily a favorite of mine, and admired the vast space as the sun lowered behind the trees and provided a minute by minute changing backdrop.  Genuinely looking forward to the model year with these talented, intelligent and soccer playing 2017 seniors.  Thanks for the time S & J!

Kentucky Charm ...

Kentucky Charm ...

Every once in awhile you meet a kid with a genuineness and hospitable way that has you thinking it impossible that he's just 18 ... that was the way with this guy.  This young man commanded the room with his glowing smile and kind charm.  In the short time we spent with him, I left impressed by his demeanor and stunned by his forward thinking from the way he greeted us as guests to the offer of something to drink while we were there ... Mom and Dad have managed to refine some intuitive and "others" centered focus with this guy.  A, I am confident that you will pave ways as you move forward into college and wish you many blessings on the way.  Thank you for allowing me a time, albeit it brief, to snap a few photos for the season's sake.
