Senior Portraits of Strongsville High School’s Audrey O’Bryon Truly ROCK!

Every now-and-then, I have the privilege of creating senior portraits of a girl who just intuitively knows how to pose and offer just the right expression at the moment the photo is created.

Audrey O'Bryon, our class of 2017 SpokesModel at Strongsville High School, “rocked” her photoshoot with dozens of cool poses, a variety expressions and an amazing array of outfits that truly showcased her personality.

She displayed classic elegance in a formal dress, with and without her engaging smile.

Oh, and did I mention that Audrey is an avid photographer? She is already taking on commercial photography assignments. Pretty amazing for a high school girl!

With her “bubbly” personality, this seemed like a good fit! I couldn't resist doing a little “digital magic” for a few of Audrey's poses.

Audrey was completely at ease in front of the camera. Although I typically direct guys and gals into a variety of poses, (you know, these kids aren't professional models), Audrey enjoyed putting her own “spin” on some of them.

Once again, Audrey's fun-loving personality just shines in this pose.

I just love this pose of Audrey. Her beautiful, brown eyes are almost magnetic!

My favorite season is Spring. Creating this portrait of Audrey among the blossoms in our outdoor portrait park was amazing. As soon as I snapped this shot, I just had to show her how beautiful she looked on the camera’s LCD screen.

Fashion Photography from my Art Institute of Pittsburgh days

Lynn Agee was an amazing model during my college days at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh.

The route to my degree in Specialized Technology – majoring in Photography/Multi-Media allowed me to explore the field of fashion photography while at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh (AIP).

Two main challenges were finding models on a budget (Hey, I was a student paying for most of my education!) and finding unique locations to impress the profs.

I was fortunate to have a roommate who had an attractive girlfriend who was willing to pose for some of my class assignments.

Lynn Agee was an Interior Design student at AIP without formal modeling experience. She also had a car (which I didn't) so we were able to scout out some pretty cool locations around Pittsburgh.

The location for this particular assignment was Heinz Hall for the Performing Arts – a performing arts center and concert hall located in the Cultural District in downtown Pittsburgh. After all these years, I can't recall how I was able to finagle time at this prestigious location!

Lynn chose her outfit, I lugged in some tungsten lights to match the illumination on Lynn with the color temperature of the lighting in the hall and the result were some stunning photos of a beautiful subject – both the model and the building.

Not only did I get an “A” for this assignment, but I grew to love the challenge of fashion photography created on-location – one of many experiences that continues to serve me well as a portrait photographer creating glamour photos, high school senior portraits and family portraits throughout the U.S. today.

Here are some videos of high school senior girls that show how my portrait style has evolved since Lynn's photo shoot.
