Peyton . Senior Photos . Cleveland, OH

We’ve been waiting almost 10 years for these pictures.  We’ve talked about them during family sessions and over the phone.  I stayed with Peyton’s family when I travelled to Washington DC for the women’s March and I’ve sent letters (two) to her mom overseas serving our country. 

So when last month I finally got in the car to drive to Cleveland and meet Peyton and her Dad for photos downtown I was pretty excited. 

What an amazing young woman you have grown up to be Peyton.  Your smile and your astute awareness of things around you showed me you are ready to take on the world and enjoy doing it!  I am so so looking forward to watching you take off and of course, I’ll be there to photograph your wedding!! 

Loving every wind blown hair and every laughing smile! We even had to duck into a shelter to avoid a quick sprinkle and we got some with Dad as well!

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
