Joey : High School Senior Portraits : Mason City Iowa

Today I’m sharing images from a recent photo shoot for a high school senior. This good-looking guy is a stepbrother to a girl I photographed a little earlier in the summer.  I was thrilled when we were wrapping up her session and her mom said she’d like to book her stepson’s portraits since his mom hadn’t arranged anything yet because they just had so much fun themselves.
Secretly, I wondered how the mood of the session would be when I found out both moms would be there… and it turned out we didn’t just have both moms, but also his sister and his girlfriend! Quite the entourage!
I was so happy to see how well his mom and his step-mom got along and the whole time we were laughing and the girls were teasing Joey. Everyone really had a fun experience. Even Joey! (Although I did kick them out of the camera room at first when they were all watching him like hawks over my shoulders, poor guy!)  I’ve gotta say I’m very impressed with how well Joey handled all the women he was surrounded with that day.  He’s definitely a great guy.
Looking at these photographs brings back so many awesome memories of that day, the beautiful weather, and the fun we shared.
Thanks for choosing Rebecca Lynne Photography!
Enjoy!

The Ebbings : Sioux Falls Area Family Portrait Photography

I’m excited to share some beautiful images from the Ebbing family’s portrait session. I recently had to head out to Sioux Falls to photograph my husband’s cousin’s son who is going to be a senior. They have a neighbor that had me take family portraits quite often when I’ve been out there in past years.  When I sent her a message to say I’d be out there again, she was happy to take advantage of the opportunity to have me capture their family once again.
It’s been a few years since our last session.
Here’s a throwback portrait for you… aren’t they cute??!RebeccaHoug-003

Now, their youngest daughter isn’t a baby anymore! Both of their girls are so lovely, and it almost feels like I’m visiting relatives when I take their pictures too, because I’ve known and photographed them for so long.

I was just giddy with excitement when I sent the email to share the gallery of images with their mom, and I got this lovely email in return this morning…
“I love the pictures! I realized I was showing coworkers and friends and I never let you know that they turned out great. The pictures of Allison with Mike & Anna with me are amazing.
Thank you!”
I love getting those messages in my inbox on Monday morning. Such a perfect way to start the week!
Enjoy!

Chloe – Mason City High School – Senior Portraits

Here’s another session I had scheduled for the day it rained. Chloe was also a great sport about trying to do a few outside that day, but she had a lot more outfits and had booked a session that included on-location photography. She had some specific locations in mind we were excited about that just wouldn’t work in the rain. She also planned on wearing her ballet leotard and ballet slippers and we did not want to ruin those in the muddy puddles!
So, what’s a girl to do?  We rescheduled some of the outfits for the next day I had available AND that the weather forecast was promising a beautiful day.
We struck gold! Not only did the in-studio shots turn out amazing, but we were able to do the outdoor on-location portraits in a town I never go to with Seniors because it’s usually a bit too far away to stick within the time frame I normally have allotted for the sessions… but since we were able to schedule it separate, it worked wonderfully. I was very inspired and my creativity just took flight. I love these images and have already heard from Chloe that she does too.
Hope your Thursday is great!
Enjoy!

Jacob : Mason City High School Senior Portraits

I’m bringing you some images today from a photo session I did in the rain. That’s right! I did a full indoor and outdoor studio session in the rain. And I’m not just talking about a mist!
Most high school senior guys aren’t really big into the whole “portrait experience”. I make it as enjoyable as I can, but if the weather isn’t cooperating that day … the idea of doing the indoor studio shots and then needing to come back another day for the outdoor portraits, just isn’t appealing to them. It’s especially hard this time of year now that school is in session, sports practices/games are in full force, and there’s only so much time in the day.
I appreciated the fact that Jacob and his mom were so laid back and relaxed about it all. His mom just enjoyed herself, hanging out in the lobby/gallery area of my studio while I photographed Jacob in the camera room and when that part was finished it was still raining but not down-pouring so I suggested trying to do some outdoor shots.
They both were on board so I grabbed my umbrella for Jacob and found the outdoor spots around the studio where he’d be able to stand and not have the rain falling on him.
If you have your settings with a shallow enough depth of field and you provide cover so your lens doesn’t get water drops on it then you can take beautiful portraits like these, even in the rain.
Sure, I got a little wet, but it was worth it to give Jacob and his mom the best experience I could and got one more item totally crossed off their to-do list.
Here’s a few of my favorites from that day.
Enjoy,

Katie : Northwood – Kensett High School Senior Portraits

Hi there!  Wow!  Where did August go?!  I can’t believe it’s September, my older son is in school and the thought of decorating with pumpkins is starting to creep into the edges of my mind.  I just have to say, I LOVE fall!  The cooler weather, beautiful colors, and more structured schedules make life more enjoyable for this country girl! I am heading out to Sioux Falls for a couple photo shoots this weekend for past customers and I am wishing the weather was a little more fallish and not so summer-y (is that a word? LOL. Probably not.) today.  It’s going to be roasty toasty warm from the sounds of it.

I have a new senior to share with you today, she is a stunner and totally down to earth and funny.  I just had a blast with her and her best friend while we captured these great senior portraits for her.  She just so happens to be another younger sibling to a senior guy I photographed a few years back.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I love my repeat customers!  Loyal to the core!  🙂

It was quite the session, about everything that could go wrong, did… somehow we managed to get locked out of the car a couple miles down the road from the studio… but luckily her mom had decided to stay back in the studio lobby and work on paperwork she had to do and so she was able to bring my van to come pick us up.  Then, we went over to their farm to take some portraits with her horse and what does the horse choose to do?  Whips his head and smacks poor Katie right in the mouth, splitting her bottom lip and so that was the end of his photos!  Bad boy!

But, we knew with mine and Katie’s schedules, finding time to re-shoot wasn’t a great option and the weather was perfect, so we pushed on quickly, before her lip got puffy.  I am in LOVE with the portraits we captured on the farm.  So many pinterest worthy images, if I do say so myself!

Katie, thanks for being such a great sport!  I appreciate your good-natured attitude through it all!

Enjoy!

McNaughton Family : Professional Family Portraits

Hello again!

I’m excited to share a few great images from my most recent session with you.  They are of the McNaughton family who has done several sessions with me over the last few years and it’s extra special because they come all the way from the Washington D.C. area!  They are just THAT loyal! … Oh, and her parents live about an hour from my studio so they stop by there for a visit since they’re in the area. 😉

This time around, we have the little guy who is 2 years old, almost 3… and little miss who is 5 years old now.  I laughed when I was taking these because for her 2 year old portraits, she was “challenging” my photo taking skills and her brother tried to follow suit, but in both cases I worked my magic and captured some of the family’s favorite portraits.

Carys now, after 5 years of working with me was amazing!  Last session I was so impressed by her willing and eager attitude, but this time she just blew me away.  I think she’s taken up watching America’s Next Top Model, judging from some of the poses this girl was giving me!  Love her so!

Here’s a sampling of a few of my favorites.  I really love the outdoor ones of Carys with the flowers and the family ones turned out great too!

Enjoy!

Jenni : Mason City High School Senior Portraits

I love welcoming old friends back to the studio. Jenni visited in 2011 when her brother, Taylor was getting his senior portraits taken. Here’s a cute picture of them together back in 2011… #tbt Siblings portrait

Well, since then, Jenni sure has grown up and is a gorgeous young lady who is very athletic like her older brother and very much interested in sports.
We actually did two full sessions in one day to capture all her cheerleading, track and softball images as well as all the more classic looks. She picked a wonderful variety of outfits so I felt like she opened a door for me and all my creativity just started flooding out.
I’m in love with these images. I had such a hard time narrowing it down but luckily since we did two sessions, I get to show twice as many for their proofs! LOL! Now they are faced with the hard part, choosing! (Yikes!)
But that reminds me to mention…. One of the best parts about choosing my studio is that I am there for my customers, every step of the way, with an amazing ordering experience where we work together, in my studio with their images and lots of samples and I’m able to show them different creative ideas for displaying their favorite images with my state of the art ordering software. It’s so great, why don’t you call and book your session today and see what it’s all about?!  507-383-2344

Enjoy!
