Urban Senior Pictures


      When this Twinsburg High School Senior said he wanted an urban setting for his senior pictures, I knew just the place! Downtown Akron Ohio has the perfect mix of industrial and natural backdrops. And while I love photographing senior sessions in open grassy fields, the modern twist an urban setting gives to the session is on point for guys!

      These first three images ended up being my favorites. And you may laugh when I tell you where they were taken. Any guesses? Jack was standing in front of urban metal door surrounded by dumpsters. And by the smell, I can only assume the doors we were using as a backdrop were holding more dumpsters of trash. But Jack was a great sport! He took a deep breath. Gave me his best smile. And then we got out of there as fast as we could!

      I love the industrial urban feel of those senior pictures. And think they are a perfect fit for Jack who works for his family’s construction company in the summers. But I have a feeling the softer and more nature inspired background of the next few pictures will end up being mom and dad’s favorites. And that’s exactly why I love photographing seniors pictures in an urban downtown setting like Akron Ohio. We can capture a ton of variety in one city block of walking!
