Ohio Senior Photographer Thomas & Thomas Photography
Harry Strauss (Class of 2018 senior photography) was one of the last to be photographed in the old studio and his parents were one of the first to view his gallery in the new studio in Avon Lake, OH. Harry is from Shaker Heights and will be graduating with the class of 2018. His parents stayed and chatted at the new studio until later than I realized. This is not a rare occurence for me as I am somewhat of a chatty Cathy. I could see how proud they were of their son. This is one of the things I love best about my job. This is one of the last stops before parents are sending their “children” out into the world as adults to accomplish their dreams. We get to capture them in that in between stage. I can’t tell you how many Moms (and Dads) have cried in the viewing room. I can see them picturing their senior at my daughter’s age and wondering how it went by so fast. In Harry’s case, we were able recognize one of his major accomplishments that so few people even know he competes in and so few people get to be a part of. Harry is a gymnast.
For 10 years, Harry has competed Nationally (USA GYMNASTICS) as a level 10 Men’s gymnast. We got to see some of his amazing skills at the studio. These kind of sessions are so much fun. It really makes me want to add a trampoline to the new studio like my friend Ben Shirk, but we will take it one thing at a time (like walls and a roof) ;).
