Towering Beauty in Over-The-Rhine ...

Towering Beauty in Over-The-Rhine ...

City shoots are always a fun sort.  For this one, we found ourselves in Over-The-Rhine and Washington Park.  They aways lend themselves well to great images.  The old German architecture, the towering buildings and brick paved alley ways are amazing, even the graffiti is awesome in it's own right!  There is always so much life in these spots and it can easily add a nice twist to our vision.  This gorgeous Senior and her beautiful Momma were a lot of fun to stroll the city with and they were so open to venturing into different territory; walking into the middle of streets, under posted signage, sitting on private doorsteps, laying down in grimy alleys and even running through the fountains.  It is easy to find a new perspective on a shot in a place like this.  And if you can't find it, it's natural for passerby's to offer their personal thoughts on the composition.  One person sharing his concern over our choice of ragged old door frame versus the next one that was covered in beautiful flowers and fresh, colorful paint.  His statement along the lines of, "She's too pretty to be in that place" ... what he didn't understand is, that with this girl, that "pretty" begins internally and the radiance that comes from that can brighten the darkest and gloomiest doorstep on their own.  This beauty walked with a fantastic confidence that towered like the gorgeous buildings we stood between and when she kicked off her shoes and freely wandered barefoot, her joyfulness and contentedness were contagious.  Hanna & Michelle, it was a joy spending the evening with you two.  Thank you for the time, I wish you all the best for your Senior year! ~ B

Misty Morning Walk About ...

Misty Morning Walk About ...

This was an early morning shoot, which isn't something I have often but I am reminded every time why I love them.  Each time, I receive remarkable greetings from a rising sun as I wind my way to locations and this morning was no different.  I drove the back roads to get to the Cincinnati Nature Center to meet this Senior and her beautiful Momma bright and early.  When we arrived, few other people were there and it felt that we had the entire place to ourselves, the only other inhabits being the Nature Center staff and the array of little critters that sang some sweet music on our way.  The air was fresh and mist still adorned the ponds.  The effects of the week's rain could be felt as we maneuvered our way through tall grasses, the wild Ohio botanicals and the the paths layed out for us.  This stunning girl, graceful as she was, was easy to shoot.  My camera loved her and those bewitching eyes of hers appeared as if they owned the light.  There wasn't a spot in Rowe Woods that wasn't illuminated by them or by her genuinely soft nature.  Spending the early morning hours, wandering a magnificent place with this lovely and her wonderful Momma was a perfect way to start the day.  Sarah and Maria, I am so thankful to have met you.  Thank you for allowing me the time to collect a few moments in this season for you.  Documenting these seasons is a genuine love for me and spending time with you two made it truly enjoyable.  I can not thank you enough! ~ B
