Alaina is so much fun and has tons of personality! She was ready to rock her session with an artsy feel. When we met to plan, we decided Akron, near Luigis would be perfect for her style.
We began in the studio with makeup (by the incredible Haley Litzinger) and captured a few with her music and acting props. One of my favorite shots from her session came from this. (In fact, you may just be able to see it now hanging in the studio if you stop by.)
Akron was a blast though too. I absolutely love shooting near Luigis because there are 1000 backdrops—literally something everywhere you turn. Check out the variety available.
Alaina left us this review and I have to share it: “I am just absolutely in love with how they came out. Like honestly. She captured every part of who I am. We had some studio time and then went to Akron for some outdoor urban stuff. Amy is so kind and fun, if you’re looking for someone to do your senior pictures, she is the person to do them.” Thanks Alayna. This literally makes my heart happy. I really do work hard to make every session amazing and when people LOVE their session I am thrilled.

Have you ever bought someone a present and you’re sooo excited about it you just can’t wait? So, you start dropping hints completely spill the beans about the gift? Yep. Me too. AND, that’s exactly how I feel today.
What We’ve Been up to Behind the Scenes
I’ve been working on something behind the scenes for months and months. Every week, we’ve planned and designed and photographed and I can’t wait one more minute to tell you what we’ve been up to! In just two months, we’re officially launching a stock photography site for any small (or large!) business to find stunning images for their business. They will be available to purchase individually or as collections. And, the best part? If you choose to subscribe, you’ll get the entire gallery–hundreds of images for your business use. And, every month, we’ll add at least 4 new collections (20 images each!)
Every week, my team and I have been gathering the prettiest props we can find. We work an entire day to produce images that I just know you’re going to love. You’ll find collections designed with office scenes, working from bed, mockups with stationary, seasonal images and so, so much more. Most of the images are fairly neutral with a slightly feminine feel. And, every single one, is gorgeous.
Each collection is fashioned to work well with the others to save you from hours and hours photographing for your social media. Simply download the images you choose, mix in a few of yourself and your products if needed, and boom–you’ve got your Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest images done! And, not only do we help you with your photographs, our monthly content creation guides, give you 20 suggestions for those days when you feel stuck and can’t write one more caption.

I’ve known Kaitlin for quite a long time now. My son and her brother are in the same grade and we all spend a lot of time at games together. She has always been a sweetheart. 🙂
I think she’d tell you that having her photos taken did not sound like her idea of a great time. She doesn’t love the spotlight but prefers quiet. When we met to decide on her locations though, I think we managed to find places and ideas she truly loves.
We started out in the Mogadore Library which is perfect for Kaitlin as she almost always has a book in her hands. Kaitlin brought some of her favorite books to make the session even more her own. We also went to Mogadore Reservoir—to a little spot that I know and love. And, last of all, we created “rain.” Kaitlin loves the rain and actually requested that we photograph her in the rain. This can obviously be tough due to the equipment, but with a few tricks, we made our own rain.
I loved this session and despite her reluctance I think Kaitlin even had a little fun too.
