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!

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

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!

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

Bluegrass bands and busy streets ....

Bluegrass bands and busy streets ....

If there are two things Cincinnati folk love for certain, it's the parks and restaurants here.  Put that and restaurant week together and it is going to make for one busy week.  This was evident as we wandered the streets of Over-The-Rhine and through Washington Park Thursday.  A city with life; real, genuine, walk about life, is a fantastic thing to see and while it altered our angle of this senior session a bit, we went with it. We followed the sun and enjoyed the sounds of a brilliant bluegrass band in the pavilion on a perfect Summer's night.  We weaved our way through the busy streets and the teams of kickball in the park as we made our way around Music Hall and over to Vine St.  And when the sun was settling in the sky just so, we wound our way over to Eden Park and Twin Lakes for a little change of scenery.  The entire time enjoying the great company of this incredibly kind, humble and beautiful senior, along with her sweet Momma.  So incredibly grateful for the privilege of documenting the beginning of a life changing year for this stunning gal. ~ B Gallery

Beauty In and Out ...

Beauty In and Out ...

Walking a new place with this creative and talented beauty, who was full of laughs, fearless over water and free to run as she pleased, reminded me that although senior year creeps up in an instant and these kids will be off in no time, they are still sweet kids at heart.  I have no doubt that this tender-hearted, intelligent beaut will have great success as she carves a path uniquely hers in this great world! ~ B Gallery

Radiant ...

Radiant ...

There are just some evenings that the fleeting sun lands upon one wherever they are in a unique way each time that just illuminates a really sweet & beautiful spirit.  This shoot was one of those evenings.  Walking through French Park as a gentle breeze fluttered about, like a butterfly in a garden, with this beauty was a night well spent.  I've included a few of my favorites of this wonderful model, but must admit, it was tough to narrow it down! ~ B Gallery
