I photographed Lainey for senior session at the end of the summer. We had a fun afternoon at Brecksville’s town square and the Cleveland Metroparks. After delivering her senior photo album, she dropped me an email. “Hey, I have an idea for a Christmas gift for my parents…” She went on to write that she would be going away to college and thought a portrait of her and her siblings would be an awesome surprise for mom and dad.
So a plan was hatched. Not only did Lainey book her photo session, but figured out an excuse to get everyone out of the house together, coordinated the sibling outfits and drove everyone to our shoot location at Coe Lake in Berea (Sorry, mom and dad Swings ‘N Things was just a diversion).
We scheduled her post consultation and she purchased her favorites for mom and dad. Lainey had worked all summer at Lumpy’s Ice Cream and saved her tips for Christmas presents. She wanted for her parents to have something special to mark this graduation year when all her and her siblings were all together. The photographs were presented in a slide show on Christmas Eve.
