Austin, oh Austin. My friends and loving, loyal clients Jackie and Greg mentioned to me that there was a very unique senior on Greg’s wrestling team for whom they wanted to do something special. He hadn’t had the royal treatment; hadn’t gotten personal senior photos. Greg asked if I could shoot for Austin and without hesitation I said heck yea, man! We got it set up and our little adventure began.
We met at Brecksville High School with intentions of photographing this track runner in his element, only to find that the keys we had to the track were wrong. And there was a 10 foot fence I was not about to climb over #nothankyou. We shot around the outside of the athletic building before heading over to a nearby park where I feel like Austin went full-on GQ. He was a total natural in front of the lens. I shared one of his photos in a photography group I belong to and it got over *1000* likes and had 130+ comments. You can guess why 😉
Austin will be running track at Mount Union in the fall and will be studying business management. He has been active in wrestling, track and field and in VOFT, and being awesome at pretty much every thing.
Austin, it was my absolute pleasure meeting and working with you. You are an incredible young man who has already shouldered more in your eighteen years than any one person should ever have to in a lifetime. Keep doing great things; I have no doubt you will.
**UPDATE! I got my physical copy and omg. I love it. It is available for purchase, and you can order one HERE!!
Ho boy… so exciting for me!! In early June, I was approached by the wonderful people at Pretty Presets for Lightroom and told that they wanted to feature me and a few other photographers in their brand-spankin-new photography magazine and resource guide called PRETTY. After I picked myself up off the floor and everyone’s ears had stopping ringing from all my screaming, I sent over three photos I love (absolutely the hardest decision I’ve had to make in a long time) and a bit of information about me and the wait began.
The first resource guide was published July 7th and you can get yours *FREE* for a limited time as a digital download. There is a boat-load of information in the magazine for photographers and mom-togs alike. You can order a hard copy as well, for a small fee. I downloaded the digital version and wow. I can’t wait for the physical version to get here! Download your copy HERE; you know you want to see what photos I chose 😉
I am so honored and my mind is 100% blown away by this. Thank you so much for the amazing feature and *awesome* resource guide Amy, Gayle, and Laura! I love what I get to do, I love the people I get to help in the “pretty” group, I love all the things I learn being active in the community. So lucky 😀
