Olivia’s Senior Portraits

We recently completed the process of shooting Olivia’s senior portraits, and we’re thrilled with how they all turned out.

Our friend Jana was the photographer, but hiring her for the job wasn’t just a case of nepotism. She’s a legitimate professional, and she made this an incredibly positive experience for all of us.

We took pictures in in downtown Kent and at Tallmadge Meadows, with each location featuring a wardrobe change.

I love that Olivia wanted to use one of our old Amsterdam bicycles as a prop for several of her portraits in downtown Kent. But really, each scene and each photograph captured a different aspect of Olivia. She’s beautiful in a dress. At the same time, she also loves to hike, and bike, and go thrifting. She’s a truly lovely young woman, both inside and out.

She’s a good kid, and we’re proud of the way she’s turning out. Honestly, that’s never been in question. Still, it takes some skill and luck to reveal a person’s inner qualities through portraiture.

When I was getting ready to graduate from high school, it was customary to print out a few dozen wallet-sized photographs to include with graduation announcements and hand out to friends in one’s graduating class. But that doesn’t seem to be as common these days.

Even if the pictures are just for us, though, I’m glad we took the time and paid the money to capture this season of transition in our daughter’s life. In case you do want to see more pictures, though, you can see the full gallery of Olivia’s senior portraits at Jana’s site.
