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

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!

Welcome To The World Little Bean ...

Welcome To The World Little Bean ...

The day may have been cold and rainy but spending a couple hours with this sweet family you would never have known.  This beautiful babe was a mere six days old and teeny as she was she filled a big space. I walked into her gorgeous nursery, blankets in tow, and watched these new parents as they doted on their sweet girl.  As a parent with older children it is easy to forget how amazing new babies are.  The moment I held this girl I felt as if I was holding something incredibly precious and I was.  Each teeny baby is a huge reminder of our short time here, of how quickly they grow and how wonderfully inexplicable loving them is.  This small addition squeaked and stretched her way through our morning together, more contented than I would have thought.  Her delicate arms stretching out her clenched fists as she'd gather her head in wrinkles with big yawns and knees pulled in tight, sleeping through most transitions.  Her chubby, soft cheeks and her tulip shaped lips puckered as she dreamt.  I couldn't help but step back and envy the season for this couple, though it's a convoluted, sleep deprived, worry filled one, it is also one filled with a flooding of love that like water seeping into cracks, can cast great light on even the hardest to reach of corners.  B & A, your E is absolutely perfect and I wish you many, many blessings in life.  Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be a part of these treasured moments with you!  ~ B

Joy is Evident ...

What amazing weather we had for the end of November with this beautiful family of 6.  They were troopers as their brood ventured through downed trees, dry creeks and steep inclines as we sought the sun in open spaces.  I was genuinely impressed with the love that they exuded for one another as these siblings not only joked with one another but even spoke of being inspired by one another.  As I inquired to the "secret" of their warmth for each other, both parents joked, but in truth it was obvious that there is an inner joy residing in this family of 6 and that joy works to develop a love and respect that seems ten fold.  These sweet kiddos and their wonderful parents were a fun crew to wander with.  I am so thankful you, A & M, allowed me the absolute privilege of photographing your beautiful family! ~ B Gallery

 

Sometimes there is beautiful sass ...

Sometimes there is beautiful sass ...

One beautiful Sunday night, I got to meet this gorgeous senior and her talented & humble Momma.  As she made her way to me with a great big grin, her beautiful blonde locks bounced as she walked. I had looked forward to meeting this girl for awhile because she knew exactly what she wanted and was truly excited about the time, which makes my job just that much easier.  We chose a favorite, Ault Park and spoke about our plans and as the sun began to lower in the sky we walked about talking of swimming, jobs, growing up in the area, and the legacy of her Mom's business and what it naturally teaches her.  This girly has a smile that is unmatched because it is easy to catch a glimpse of her personality with one look.  You can't miss the raised eyebrow telling you that she means business in her all-the-time approach because there is serious sass behind that checkmark of a brow.  She moved quickly and spoke kindly of her friends and her extensive family, of which you can hear her love of and loyalty to.  She has a natural artisticness behind her great beauty and it is evident in the way she carried herself, spoke, what she wore and her pursed lip grins.  This girl is going to pave ways, I don't doubt that even in just this meeting.  She embodied a confidence that is rare in seniors and approached ideas with zest.  The time with this beauty and her beautiful Momma was such a pleasure.  Thank you for gifting me the time to spend with you two, capturing this time for you and allowing me the privilege, I truly relished the opportunity! ~ B Gallery

Green eyes & Gracefulness ...

Green eyes & Gracefulness ...

I arrived at this session a touch later than my norm due to a detour, so my senior and her Mom beat me there.  As I pulled into my space, I saw the two walking towards the car to meet me and I smiled, remembering how much I love what I do.  This senior carried herself with a natural grace enhanced only by her striking beauty.  We set about our direction and went to work walking in the midst of towering trees, listening to the crunch of heavy leaves beneath our feet.  The glow of Autumn's color complimented this beauty as if she was made for the season because with every spot we chose and every turn of light her large, green eyes shone like nobody's business and her smile glistened from ear to ear.  She and her beautiful Momma laughed together the entire time making this session one that put my senior at ease allowing me the opportunity to snap through beautiful candid moments and letting my lens see her so naturally.  She was easy to spend time with as we talked about family, friends, city and future.  It was clear to see the heart of this gal through her words and to learn that her level of kind and internal beauty is rare, just further explaining her outward beauty and charm.  Thank you two for allowing me the time to walk with you and to catch a glimpse of a sweet season for your family.  I genuinely enjoyed the evening with you two gorgeous ladies and loved laughing along side you as we strolled the center together.  Allowing me to capture these images is appreciated more than you know and I look forward to seeing what God has in store for you, K, as you walk like a beautiful light through this world! ~ B Gallery

A Quiet Strength ...

A Quiet Strength ...

The night with this lovely girl didn't feel like October at all.  The weather warm and the sun hung lightly as if it was late evening in Summer.  As we walked about the Nature Center the only clues to the season were the beautiful leaves underfoot and the trees ablaze with color.  This senior spoke delicately with a chuckle that resonated each word and I think that her inner strength was evident as she spoke of her hopes for a future abroad.  It was just the two of us as we slowly made our way through the trails and over the ponds.  It was an effortless walk as we listened to the rustling of trees and brush, standing near one rather heavy sound anticipating the arrival of a large bunny only to be surprised by the quick sprint of a teeny chipmunk.  Time with this gal was a pleasure and it is truly a hope of mine that she know her beauty, that it is uniquely and individually designed.  That she knows where ever she goes her wit and charm will serve well and her ability will surprise her.  Thank you for the opportunity E, you're one stunning girl! ~ B Gallery

Mommas & Daughters ...

Gallery Heavy rain and rolling clouds have a beautiful way about them.  The quick session with this gorgeous Momma and her stunning girlies wasn't going to be hindered by the weather.  So of course, parking garages being absolutely fantastic places, we defaulted to the perfect one for a change of venue!  These pictures just remind me how much I love a terrific grey and with these beauties it was just the pop on what would have been an otherwise dreary day! ~ B

Rainbows in Random Places ...

Rainbows in Random Places ...

What do you do when you're off for the weekend?  You grab your daughter and one of her friends and drag them out for impromptu pictures.  When we arrived T expressed that she felt as if she was in a giant's house with the large, expansive pillars and wide open spaces.  Likening it to a scene from "Jack and The Beanstalk".  The girls ran freely around this place, uncontained by the influence of an outside world that buzzed loudly by in passing vehicles, they sprinted and laughed throughout the garage, finding perfect echo spots and picking which color was their favorite.  The giggles echoing through these open walls rang sweetly across the cemented ground.  What a blast to just enjoy a unique space with these cheerful beauties, proving that anything, even parking garages, can lend itself well to photographs! ~ B

Crowned by Queen Anne's Lace ...

Crowned by Queen Anne's Lace ...

I am one lucky girl to get to spend my weekends wandering about beautiful places with some of the friendliest people you'd find.  I knew that would be the case for this shoot, what I didn't know is that it would be times 100.  We arrived at the Cincinnati Nature Center on what was their Hoots and Hops night.  There was the obvious fragrance of ale in the air and countless sweet smiles of staff and visitors roaming the trails along side my senior and her Momma.  As we maneuvered through the attending Cincinnati Observatory's incredible scopes set up for night viewing, we were greeted with kind words and laughing people the entire time. Good strangers jumped in for a quick game of photo bombing as they'd pass through, offering compliments and congratulatory accolades to my beautiful senior whose glowing eyes glistened & changed amazingly as the sun's dancing rays landed upon them in different places. This girly fit perfectly among this reserve, sitting amidst lace-y flowers enhanced by her smile, while the grasshoppers skittered about as if speaking a fitting "how do you do?" to this lively beaut.  It was my absolute pleasure spending the evening with this charming chica and her beautiful Mom.  Thank you so much for granting me the opportunity to record this ticket in time! ~ B Gallery
