I’ve been photographing high school seniors for more than 13 years. I love learning about your interests, hobbies, style, & dreams. My goal is to capture your personality and individuality with my camera and showcase who you are through beautiful imagery. Throughout the entire process, I will be there every step of the way to help you select the best outfits and locations for your senior portrait session.

Rachel Zoe said, “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.” I want to create images that say who YOU are without words!

Let's do this!

You are capable of

I’ve been photographing seniors for over 13 years and I love it just as much today as I did when I started it. I love learning about each senior and creating images that are authentically YOU. I strive to make each senior portrait experience fun and unique from start to finish.

A little about me... I was born and raised in Northeast Ohio. When I’m not taking pictures, I love spending time with my family. I married my high school sweetheart almost 30 years ago. Our two children who, along with their significant others, and my grand-pups, Lulu, Tasha & Tippy, are my pride and joy. Whether we're going on family vacations or just watching movies or playing games, I’m happiest when I’m spending time with them.

I try not to take life too seriously and I love to make people laugh. The Kate Spade quote above is one of my favorites, as it perfectly describes my personality. I love dreaming and creating and truly believe that anything is possible!

MODEL TEAM details

Sarah Underwood

My experience being a SHP model was absolutely amazing. I was able to make new friendships with girls from surrounding schools which I am so thankful for. I loved having my senior session with Sharon, as well as getting to have my own personal styled session that represented me and what I love. Sharon is amazing at what she does and treats all her girls like her own. I was so thankful to have this experience!

Lauren Lexenburg

Applying for the Sharon Holy Model Team was the best decision I made for my senior year. Sharon is truly the sweetest. She made me feel so special all year long, and gave me beautiful photographs that I will cherish forever. Being on the team introduced me to the most amazing girls, some of who I would have never met if it wasn’t for her, and one of them now being my bestest friend. This was one of the most special and unique experiences that I’ve ever had, and I’m so glad I got to experience it with such an amazing group of girls.

Jamie Graham

I enjoyed being on the senior model team so much! I got to know so many amazing girls from different schools that I have formed friendships with. I also love having so many different photos with different outfits, whether it be my actual grad shoot or my styled shoot.

Working with sharon was so fun because not only is she a friend of the family, but I got to personally connect with her which allowed all of my photos to really and truly represent me. Looking at my photos from the first shoot to the last shoot also shows me how much I have grown to know myself from the beginning of my senior year to the end.

Caitlyn Cvitkovic

Choosing to apply and be a part of the modeling team was one of the best decisions I’ve made. Being on the model team not only made me feel beautiful on the outside, but the overwhelming amount of support I’ve seen from Sharon and my other models made me feel beautiful on the inside too. I cannot express in words how grateful I am to have met Sharon and the amazing friends I’ve made through the modeling team.

Chloe Bower

Being on the SHP Model Team was an amazing experience and opportunity. All the girls were incredibly nice and sweet. Everyone that Sharon picked to be on the team was different in such a beautiful way. The girls that were in my team embodied the meaning of kind and beautiful.

Sharon is one of the most kind-heartened people I have met. Her main focus on all the sessions was making sure we were comfortable and felt beautiful. She was just as excited as we were every single shoot. Her passion for what she does rubs off on us in such a positive way. Positivity radiates off of her. The way my photos made me feel and how this whole experience made me feel is unexplainable. I truly felt so supportive and beautiful. This experience is something I am so grateful to have done my senior year.
