Winner of Best of 2023 Images and Silver Award Merit Images from Senior Year Magazine

I have another BIG announcement to share with you! Last week was seriously so exciting, I am still over here pinching myself! Senior YEAR Magazine announced that 2 of my images won the Gold Award, Best of 2023 and will be published in their Best of 2023 edition. In addition to that amazing news, I also have 5 images that won Silver Merit awards!

My Seniors this year were outstanding and I am so happy they are getting this recognition! A big congratulations to them! It is such an honor to be included in these coveted editions with such talented photographers that I follow and admire. When I started submitting my images one year ago, I never imagined that a year later I would be included in these prestigious categories! I am so thrilled and can’t wait to see what we will accomplish with my 2025 Seniors!

A little background about these photos:
Kenzie C.-Beach Photo
Mentor Headlands Beach
Gilmour Class of 2024

Senior Year Magazine Best of 2023 Page 30

Mentor Headlands is a popular choice for beach Senior Photos in the Cleveland area. The day of Kenzie’s shoot it was HOT! It was 90 degrees and humid and probably the last hottest day of the year. We were also attacked by tons of mosquitoes! They were relentless! Kenzie handled it all like a pro and you would never know that we had those obstacles. She was cool and calm! Mother Nature graced us with cotton candy skies that were absolutely gorgeous and was a perfect backdrop for beautiful Kenzie’s Senior Photos at Mentor Headlands Beach.

Josh P.-Street Photo
Cleveland street
St. Ignatius Class of 2024

Josh is the quarterback for St. Ignatius and wanted to do his photos on the beautiful campus of St. Ignatius. This cool street shot was taken behind the campus on one of the neighborhood streets. The golden light streaming in was so gorgeous and I knew we needed to get some photos on the street. Luckily the street wasn’t too busy and we were able to capture Josh looking so cool walking down the street. We also captured many cool shots of Josh on the football field. Check out this post.
