Samantha | Fall Senior Portrait Session

Fall Senior Portrait Session in Akron, Ohio

Talk about a girl that made my job easy – Samantha was absolutely incapable of taking a bad photo. I’m not kidding! I had such a hard time narrowing her gallery down because she looked great in all of them. I’m not sure how that is possible, but she is clearly a natural. We had so much fun during her fall senior portrait session!

Sam wanted a fall session, so we aimed for October. I was surprised at how green everything still was, but I’m really happy that we were able to get some really “fall” looking images.

Samantha is a senior at Copley High School, and participates in dance, track, and her young life group. She received her letter in track, and is a member of the National Honors Society. She’s looking forward to studying at either the University of Akron or Elon University, where she plans to study medicine. Her dream career would be as a missionary doctor helping those in need.

Although I’m sure she wasn’t prepared to spend the last half of her senior year being “homeschooled” due to COVID-19, I bet she’s enjoying the extra time with her family and their nine cats.

Wherever life takes her, I know she’ll forever be lighting up rooms with her smile and sweet personality! Wishing you the best, Samantha! I hope you enjoy these photos from your fall senior portrait session for the years to come. xo, Destinee
