It's hard for me to believe this young lady is a high school senior!  I've known Mikah and her family since she was very little and although I have three children of my own and have seen them grow, graduate and begin their adult lives, each time I photograph a senior I've known for a long time, it makes me take pause.  There's nothing like watching kids grow up to make you feel old!

Photographing Mikah was nothing short of spectacular!  Despite the heat, Mikah was calm and cool as we worked our way around Locust Hill Country Club.  Why the country club?  Mikah, who spends a lot of time there, is an incredibly talented golfer and has been at it since she was 8 years old.  Among her numerous awards are back to back titles as champion for Section Five, Monroe County and All-Greater Rochester (2017 and 2018), Mikah's work ethic on the course is exceptional and it shows.

She and her mom chose the Deluxe session for her senior portraits which allowed for several locations with a huge variety of backdrops.  After a brief stop at her salon to touch up her make-up and curl her hair, we met at her second destination, the George Eastman Museum. She continued to shine in and among the gorgeous architecture and foliage of this iconic Rochester landmark. 

Mikah's plans for the fall are to attend William & Mary College in Virginia where she will become part of the NCAA Division 1 women's golf team.  I have no doubt she will continue to work hard and thrive in both her golfing career and the rigorous academic program the college offers.  A big thank you to mom (Courtney) and Mikah for choosing Hayes Photography for her senior portraits and best of luck in the fall and beyond!

This is Ariana.  She knew, right from our first meeting, that she wanted to be photographed somewhere spectacular.  Rochester offers so many locations of that description, but when I showed her some images from senior sessions at the Eastman Museum, she knew that was the spot.  It was a beautiful afternoon with the gardens looking terrific and she brought her A model game with her.  

When I asked her what she liked to do to keep busy, I got the longest list!  She is involved in so much, from Key Club at school, volunteering at Cherry Ridge and RAIHN to the teen advisory board at the library, stage crew, temple youth group and working out.  I was exhausted just listening to this sweet, beautiful young lady.  

Ariana isn't the only family member I've photographed.  Her brother, Jordan, graduated a few years back and is involved in many theater productions.  I've done his senior portraits as well as head shots and we were lucky enough to catch him in a few shots before he headed off to NYC.

A big thanks to mom and dad for choosing Hayes Photography and to Ariana as she begins her senior year at Thomas!!!
