Cincinnati Senior Portraits

Im not going to lie, once in a while I pop out my senior memories book for a night of reminiscing.   I was a senior in 1996, which for me was a year of great times I will always remember,  but also a year of  bad hair, high waisted jeans, scrunchies, and clod hopping military boots.

My senior pictures were taken at the "it" studio that everybody was going to at the time.  On picture day I gathered up all of my favorite outfits and my best friend and we headed to the studio.  I thought it was so cool to have my pictures taken by a professional photographer.  I felt so special that day.  In 1996 I loved my pictures and  I wanted everyone of them, today I cringe at my pictures and feel awful that my dad spent so much money on prints that are still in the box.  No CDS back in those days... The studio used cheesy gold studio lighting and metallic backdrops.  They had  ladders and a fake graffiti wall with '96 spray painted on it.  My pictures were just corny.  One day when I am brave enough I will post them...though I will say this, the zipper on my jeans was at least 12 inches long.  I was wearing "mom jeans" at 17. :)

When Adrienne's mother contacted me about setting up a Senior photo session, she said she wanted something personal and special for Adrienne.  She wanted to shoot in Devou Park and Mainstrasse.  I love that more and more seniors want to take their pictures outside of the studio.  It makes the experience so much more exciting and unique.  Senior pictures don't have to be corny studio pictures anymore.  They can actually be pretty creative and cool pictures, instead of pictures you want to hide from 15 years later. :) We ran all over Covington.  I honestly felt like a 17 year old in a 32 year olds body that day.  It was a lot of  fun.  Adrienne is very pretty and so, so sweet.  She was a natural in front of the camera.  She brought along her best friend, Polly to be our performing artist/comedian and she did a great job keeping us laughing all evening. :)  Thanks Polly!  And thank you Adrienne for choosing me to take your senior pictures! :)
