Seniors guys versus senior girls. I have learned over the last few years that guys and girls differ when it comes time for senior portraits. For the most part, girls are over the moon that THEIR time in front of the camera has finally arrived! Guys, on the other hand, reluctantly agree to a senior session because their mom wants to document this special milestone (ahem...AND they have been promised food following our time together).
However, every now and then I get a fella on my schedule who is genuinely excited for their senior portrait session. Meet Jake, a 2018 Bellevue High School Senior, who happened to be one of the few guys I just mentioned! Not only was Jake looking forward to his session, but he had ideas when it came to both poses and locations as well. With the added help of his sister and mom, Jake's outfit selections were perfectly styled for our chosen locations during his summer session.
During the summer months I like to schedule my sessions to take place in the evening with a start time of an hour or two before sunset. The lighting during this time of day is flattering and I am always hopeful we will be blessed with a beautiful sunset as well! Jake and his family are members of Bay Point Resort and Mariana in Marblehead, Ohio. Both Jake and mom desired for a portion of Jake's summer session to take place at Bay Point Resort, a location special to them holding many memories; therefore, we started our session at the gorgeous resort that is located along the shores of the great Lake Erie. Following our time at Bay Point we made the short drive to the ever popular Marblehead Lighthouse to finish up our evening. After the need to reschedule our initial session due to weather, we could not have asked for a better summer night the evening of Jake's senior session! Enjoy some of my favorite images from my time with this 2018 Bellevue High School Senior. Does anyone else LOVE the plaid, button down shirt that Jake brought along as much as I do? Guys...you can never go wrong with a classic button down and a fun pop of color during the summer months is fantastic!
Thank you Jake and family for selecting Kelly Lindsay Photography for your senior portrait needs! It was a pleasure meeting all of you and I thank you for sharing your little slice of heaven along Lake Erie with me! Jake, wishing you the very best during your remaining time at Bellevue High School and much success in your future endeavors!
