Mia loves horseback riding, loves taking photographs of nature and still life, and doing make up. Mia loves spending time with her mom and poodle, Harper, taking Harper to the dog park. “I love watching scary movies with friends and eating food. Even though I don’t look it, I can eat more than my dad! Especially steak!”

Mia has big plans and dreams for college and beyond for her life. “After I graduate I really hope to go to Berea College in Kentucky. I want to study in nursing and psychology.” After college she wants to work as a psychiatric nurse that works inpatient with teens that are going through depression, anxiety or trauma.

When asked where she sees herself in 5 years, Mia shares that she will still be a college student but independent. She knows it won’t be easy, but the good days will make the tough days of college worth it. 

 Although Mia is excited to spread her wings, she will miss all the amazing people she has met throughout the years in high school. She has had the influence of amazing teachers that have helped to mold her into being the best she can while pushing her towards her goals.

After college Mia has plenty of dreams. “Since I want to be a psychiatric nurse, my one true accomplishment would be to know that I saved someone’s life and turned their life around. I’d love to someday live in an old house with no debt to my name. I want to go to Italy with my dad, because he was stationed there while he was in the navy and lived there for 4 years.”

Mia is looking forward to all the college tours this upcoming year. She also is excited for the opportunity to make her senior year her best year yet. “I’ve had a couple hard years in the past but I have made it through the storm and I am so thankful for everyone that has stood by my side. I love the self-confidence I have and the love I have for life. You have to live everyday as if there is no tomorrow. So I make sure to tell everyone I love them and that I do what makes ME happy.”

Savoring Your Senior Photography Experience

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

Sam Williams, Senior - Class of 2019, Moeller High School 

Sam Williams, Senior - Class of 2019, Moeller High School 

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!

Sam Williams High School Senior Moeller High School

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!

Moeller High School Senior Sam Williams 2019

 

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!

Sam Williams Class of 2018 Senior Moeller High School

Remember When Portraits offers a full service experience that it customizable to your working budget. All of our products are available al a carte´ and there is no minimum purchase. We sleep well at night knowing you are only purchasing what you LOVE and NEED!

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 by Karie Michelle located at 383 S. Main Street South Lebanon, Ohio 45065

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. 

Gussied Up by Karie Michelle in South Lebanon, Ohio Hours of Operation

Gussied Up offers very convienent hours, same day appointment options, free parking with little to no stairs, a snack bar and online booking. Here is a link to schedule your appointment online:    https://www.vagaro.com/gussiedupsalonandboutique

Here is a photo of Karie’s new space, but you can see the entire new space make over on her facebook page https://www.facebook.com/gussiedupsalon/ or by stopping in during normal business hours to check it out in person!

Currently Karie is looking to bring on another stylist through a booth rental opportunity. If you or someone you know is looking to branch out into a self-employment opportunity, please contact Karie directly by phone: 513-403-7943.

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!

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?
