experience

I’ve been photographing high school seniors for more than ten years. Working with teens inspired me so much that I decided to specialize in senior photography. I consider it an honor and privilege to be a part of this special time in your life and strive to capture who YOU are, in this moment. 

I love learning about each and every one of my clients! I want to know all about your interests, hobbies, personal style, passions, and 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!

About 

I’ve been photographing seniors for over 10 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 try 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-pup, Tasha, 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 am shopaholic and love everything related to fashion! I also love home decorating. Tiffany blue is my favorite color, which you can tell by my company colors and literally almost everything I own. My favorites include Starbucks, Broadway Musicals and all sports - especially the Cleveland Indians!

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!

"Sharon Holy took both my girls senior pictures and we couldn't have been happier. She took the time to really get to know both my girls. They have very different personalities and she captured that in all the pictures. She made it so fun for all of us- with my one daughter I think it might have been one of the hottest days, but you would have never known looking at all the pictures. We were super impressed and we will definitely be using her for our other children's senior pictures. Sharon Holy is truly amazing and so talented."

Melissa Reigle - parent

"Working with Sharon during Taylor’s senior picture experience was nothing short of wonderful! She made the whole process simple and transparent. The actual day of the photo shoot, Sharon and her beautiful assistant (daughter!) went out of their way to get every shot that Taylor was hoping for. The weather during the shoot let loose with torrential rain, and they still made it work. And they made it fun! The final pictures are really just amazing. We are in deep gratitude to what Sharon brought out of Taylor for her senior experience."
