Breauna Hughes Photography 2016 Seniors – Year in Review

Looking back at 2016 I wanted to take a moment to reflect on all the wonderful seniors and their families I’ve had the privilege of working with. As always, at the end of every session I was feel very blessed with each and everyone of my seniors and their families. The very best part of my job getting to build a relationship so many incredible families.

Senior sessions is always get a little emotional. While parents watch their child’s session they tend to reminisce about them as a small child and without fail tell me to enjoy every moment with my kids as they, “Grow up way too fast!” It is a very special moment that I get to witness and share with these families.

Without further ado, here are some of my favorite senior images for the past year….

Molly’s Senior Photo Session – Zoar, OH Senior Photographer

This is Molly Maxin.  She is a senior at Perry High School.  Her interest include fashion and beauty. She is following in her mom’s footsteps as a hairstylist. She is attending vocational beauty school at Perry. She also loves all things Aubrey Hepburn, as you can tell by her classic personal style. She is a very sweet young lady and is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.

I met the Maxin family through our church. Her mother is now the head of our women’s ministry. Her father Greg is the founder of  The Uniform Guy  in Canton. It was so fun getting to know this family a little better.

We wanted to pick a location that was unique to Molly’s personal style. We wanted somewhere classy and beautiful. I suggested Zoar Gardens in Zoar, OH. I  have visited there a few times but never shot there. I will definitely be back. The garden’s and surrounding historic village are a perfect, quiet location for sessions. And the flowers were in full bloom when we went last month.

We had a great time and the Maxin’s loved their photos.  It was such a privilege to be chosen as Molly’s senior photographer.  I was so happy they were pleased with their session.

Jordan’s Senior Photography Session – Alliance, OH Senior Photography

Meet Jordan. He is a high school senior at Malvern High School. He is a talented golf and basketball player. He is a quite, serious and sweet young man. His mother Debbie and father Chad were also very sweet. It was such a pleasure working with this family. Debbie was referred to me for Jordan’s senior photography session by one of my senior photography ambassador’s Alexis.

We decided on Glamorgan Castle in Alliance for Jordan’s senior photography session. It was a perfect backdrop for a guy’s session. I love shooting at the castle because it is so beautiful and secluded usually. Although it was a very hot evening we made it though and it turned out great. Debbie was very pleased.

Alex’s Senior Session – Hartville OH Senior Photographer

Meet Alex. She’s sweet, smart and talented.  I was very excited when I was asked to be Alex’s senior photographer. I met Alex several years ago at our church when I met her father Ryan Thompson. Ryan and his wife Marie are the creators of Vegas Website Design . I would like to give them a HUGE shout out for the amazing work they do. They have been keeping my website looking fabulous for several years now.

For Alex’s senior photography session she wanted a mix of location styles. She wanted to feature her skill as a flute player in the band at Lake Local High School. So we chose an urban location behind a few buildings in downtown Hartville. Alex also has a love for all things vintages. So we took a short walk over to Modern Vintage  in the downtown area. the outside of the shop is so cute and colorful. The ladies at Modern Vintage were so sweet, offering to bring out extra furniture for us to use. I you’ve never been there it is a very cute little shop with all kinds of fun things to look at.

Finally we ended Alex’s Senior Photography Session at Quail Hollow State Park. Quail Hollow is one of my favorite locations this time of year. The light is gorgeous in the evening and the garden is spectacular.

I had such a fun time with Alex and her family during her senior photography session. I’m so glad they chose me to be her photographer. I wish Alex the very best as she has some major life changes happening soon.  After graduation Alex has plans of attending college in Las Vegas with her family. This is such an exciting time and I wish her the very best!

I love getting feedback from my clients after a session. Alex told me she loved her images, she really liked working with me and I helped make her feel very comfortable. Thank you Alex! I loved working with you as well!

Michaiah’s Session – Canton OH Senior Photographer

This beauty is my precious sister Michaiah. I love this girl so much. She is so kind to pose for me on occasion.  We went to my grandparents for a few days last week. I recently bought a battery pack so that I can bring my studio lights outside. I am so excited to start using them for my client sessions. So while we were at my grandparent’s cabin I brought it all along for a little mini session. The set up was very easy and so reliable. But it was a bit challenging climbing down the raven and balancing all my equipment between rocks.  But we had fun together and  now Michaiah got a little more practice posing before her senior pictures next year! 😉

Sara’s Senior Portrait Session – Massillion OH Senior Photographer

This is Sara Loomis. She is a very beautiful and talented senior that I had to privilege of getting to know and photograph over that last few months. I say months because I had two sessions with Sara. She originally wanted photos at the Glamorgan Castle in Alliance, OH. Because of her busy basketball and track schedule we only had a few available dates. One of those was an early April morning when the temperature never went above 30! Needless to say we didn’t get very many good portraits between the shivers. So we waited a few weeks and rescheduled. We were blessed with a beautifully warm 75 degree evening at Sippo Lake where we finished her session.

Sara is a very amazing girl. She has dedicated herself to be the very best at basketball. And she also chose to run track so that she could stay in shape for basketball. All her hard work has paid off. She has received a full basketball scholarship to Ashland University. Her parents are so proud of her! I would also like to mention that I had so much pleasure photographing her. She is so incredibly sweet and beautiful! I think she could have an alternative career as a model.

Thank you Sara for allowing me to take your photos. I wish you the very best as you start this new adventure!

Michaiah and Brady’s Spring Formal Session – Minerva OH Photographer

Isn’t this the cutest couple ever? Although I may be a bit biased. This is my beautiful sixteen year old sister Michaiah and her boyfriend Brady. They attend Carrollton Baptist School where their Spring Formal was being held.  I had another prom session nearby earlier that day. So afterwards I stopped by my parents home and had a mini session for these two.  We were lucky because it stopped raining for about 15 minutes for us. We were also lucky because my parent’s apple tree was in full bloom and was absolutely gorgeous!

Now allow me to brag a little on my lil sis. Michaiah is number five in the birth order of our family having four older sisters and a younger brother. When she was born I was 12 years old. She and I were best buds from day one. We have continued to stay close even though I got married when she was in third grade. She is frequently at my house for the weekends and especially during the summer. Even though we are going though totally different stages in life we somehow still connect and love hanging out with each other. I especially love how much she loves my kiddos. She is so good to them.

I was a little unsure when I heard about Brady at first. (Being the protective older sister and all 😉 ). But after I met him and found how how polite and sweet he is to her, I am so glad they have each other to share this special time in life together. He is a senior this year and will be heading off to Geneva Bible Collage in the fall.

Note at the end of this post there is an outtake. While taking these photos my brother and his best friend decided to photobomb Michaiah and Brady in full air soft gun gear. Brady thought it was hilarious. Michaiah, not so much. But hey, that’s what younger brothers for right?

Cody’s Senior Session – Massillion OH Senior Photographer

This young man is Cody. He is another of my 2017 Senior Ambassadors. Cody is from Perry High School. We had perfect weather at Sippo Lake State Park for his session. And Cody did a great job! He is very easy going and funny. He is also a very hardworking young man.  He is on the football team and in the ROTC program. He has a great job as a supervisor and is planning to have a career in the Army after college.

I always like to ask the parents of the high school seniors who are at the session if they would like a picture with their son or daughter. Cody’s mother Kelly even planned ahead with matching jerseys. I love it!

After sending his gallery to his mother this is what she had to say:

Breauna,
These pictures are BEAUTIFUL! I opened them and it brought tears to me eyes at how great they turned out and how big my baby has gotten! You did a AWESOME job and I cannot wait to share these with everyone!!!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Alexis’ Senior Portrait Session – Hartville OH Senior Photographer

This beautiful young lady is Alexis from Louisville High School. She is a 2017 graduate and one of my senior ambassadors. I am so excited to have her on my team. She is very motivated, sweet and classy. I loved her personal style! Being in front of the camera for years as a Louisville Constitution Queen, Alexis was so easy to photograph! She has been a part of many clubs and programs including debate club. I’m sure Alexis has a very bright future ahead of her!

Alexis make was done by Stephanie Walkiewicz http://www.stephaniewalkiewicz.com/. This was my second time working with Stephanie. She did such a beautiful job giving Alexis the classic look for her portraits. Thank you so much Stephanie!
