Savoring Your Senior Photography Experience

Treasure every moment. They only stay little for a little while. Some day you will miss this.

As parents we have all heard these clichés a time or two. However, none of them ever ring so true as they do when your baby starts their senior year of high school. The whirlwind of emotions and "busy work" in preparation of this final year in high school leaves both you and your senior ready for it to end yet praying it won't all at the same time. 

One of the biggest parts of senior year is coordinating senior photos. There are so many questions: When is the yearbook deadline? What should I wear? Can I hide all these teenager battle scars? I am so scared to be in front of the camera, do I really have to? Do I really need them? What will they cost? - The questions are endless and rightfully so!

Remember When Portraits is here to help you navigate through all of these questions! Even more importantly, we are here to help you remember to slow down and enjoy the process. Part of our process is to purposely meet with you before scheduling your session to assure you are comfortable with working with us before we even pull out the camera. We want you and your baby to actually enjoy this experience as these are the memories of one of their biggest life accomplishments so far!

We help you put into perspective how quickly (or not) you will need to book to assure you have plenty of time to hit your school's yearbook deadline. We talk with you about outfit ideas and ways to assure you will look timeless instead of trendy in retrospect in your photos. Our studio takes the time to remove any blemishes or marks on the skin that you won't see on any other given day. We understand how frustrating being a teenager is and we assure when you look back in 30 years on your senior photos you won't see any of those teenage battle scars!

Do you need senior photos? Honestly that is up to you. No one can make that choice for you. However, once the time passes you can't get a re-do. When in doubt it is better to have them done than to always wonder if you should have. Should of's and could of's never win ball games!

Gussied Up Has Moved!

Over the past year and a half I have had the pleasure to get to know a local small business owner, both as a client and as a peer. Karie Lacy came to the Maineville area with a dream of bringing hair designs and styles to life in our community.

Gussied Up by Karie Michelle came to life right across the hall from our studio in the Maineville Professional Building. Together we have co-marketed with back to school photos and hair cuts, worked side by side at the Maineville 4th of July Parade and most recent at the Shop the Village Event in December with the LMIS PTO. Gussied Up has grown leaps and bounds since coming to our community. It has grown so much that Karie shifted gears last month by announcing she was moving 5 minutes up the road to a new location - one big enough to expand her service offerings to give her clients (including me!) a full luxury experience.

Gussied Up is now located at 383 S. Main Street South Lebanon, Ohio 45065. It is right next to the bike trail and just minutes away from Target, Lowes, Kohls and Starbucks right off of 71. Karie’s new space offers a snack bar and a front porch for those coming for an appointment, doing a walk-in appointment or just taking a break from being out on the bike trail exercising.

Karie, I have enjoyed watching your business grow since we first met. I cannot wait to see the new space in person and experience the excellent customer service and styling in your new location that you have always given me! I am seriously so happy for you and the grow Gussied Up has experienced. We will miss you at the professional building, but I cannot wait to see how much your business will thrive in its new location! Cheers to a job well done!

Welcome 2018!

Maineville Ohio Photography Studio 2018

Happy New Year! Can you believe it is 2018 already? I cannot believe we are almost already at mid month. It is going by so quickly! 

I wanted to share some exciting news that we have going on at the studio for 2018. First and foremost, I want to THANK YOU for continuing to support our photography studio. We are approaching our 3rd year in business this year and we know it wouldn’t be possible without you! 

Last year we photographed over 80 different sessions that included individuals, families, newborns, model calls and corporate clients. Our goal this year is to photograph over 120 different sessions in 2018 by offering you a full service experience that allows you to enjoy being in front of the camera.

Jayelyn, Class of 2017, Georgetown High School

Welcome to Seniors Week!

Today I want to introduce you to Jayelyn. She is an upcoming senior at Georgetown High School in Ohio. On the day of her session it was raining and simply not so pretty outside. However, she made the best of it. We were able to capture images both inside the studio and out around the downtown Maineville area in between rain showers. It was so much fun being able to try different outfits and get an assortment of different looks. Jayelyn, you were a blast to work with! We wish you well on your upcoming Senior Year!

 

Currently in High School Jayelyn is active in basketball, soccer and drama club. She also enjoys learning and serving other. 

What are your aspirations in the future?

Nursing School

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

What is most important for you to be able to look back on your senior year/senior photos and be reminded of or see?

Just to see how I was in high school

What has been (or will be) your most memorable experience during your high school career?
