My session with this Senior was an a real blast, even if it did take two weeks to complete. Gotta love Cincinnati storms in the spring. Needless to say a down power line and hail didn’t derail our attempt to capture the spirit of this young lady. We started off shooting at International Friendship Park. After some time checking out the large Mirror sculpture and curved concrete benches, and a few weeks, we headed to Smale park. Smale Park is a great place to visit and an even better place to shoot portraits, especially later in the evening. She is active in her HS color guard and plays the cello so we made sure to utilize these props to accent who she is in 2016. I am grateful they allowed me to share in this special moment in their lives and want to wish her the best of luck in her senior year.
I wanted to enjoy one of the first warm days of spring so I decided to take a stroll across the Roebling Bridge. If you are interested in taking the nice walk you can either park at the entrance to the Bridge in KY at one of the many meters or at The Banks on the Cincinnati side. During your trip I recommend stopping at The Gruff in Covington. The Gruff has great food and a good Beer selection plus a nice Deli and is located at the entrance to the bridge. Here are a few of my favorite shots of the trip.
After a portrait workshop I did in Kentucky, I decided to stop down by one of my favorite places to shoot Cincinnati. I find the Great American Insurance building , with Great American Ball Park in the forefront makes for a visually nice Skyline. That particular night the Reds had something on their jumbo tron that was casting purple onto everything. The other image I posted is from the base of the Roebling bridge in Kentucky. The Roebling Bridge is a suspension bridge that opened in December of 1866. At that time it was the longest suspension bridge in the world.
