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!

Kris + Katie : Wedding Photography

My brother-in-law, Kris, got on April 13th to the loveliest gal. Her name is Katie and her mom owns Addie’s Floral in Albert Lea, Minnesota. So I knew their wedding flowers were going to be beautiful for sure!
(Funny fact: I chose Addie for my wedding flowers when I got married to Andy over 10 years ago!)
After quite a bit of thought over having an outdoor wedding at their place in a rustic barn setting, wedding was held in Albert Lea, MN at the Methodist Church. Which was a good thing because there was quite the crowd for this beautiful couple!
I had the honor of being chose as their photographer, Andy was an usher, and our son, Collin was ring bearer! He looked so handsome in his suit!!! I was so excited to see him and Andy all dressed up for the wedding.
I’ll admit there are quite a few extra pictures of Collin mixed in the proofs.
*insert guilty grin*
After the wedding, the couple stopped at Pub 69 in Twin Lakes for a quick drink before heading to Diamond Jo Casino in Northwood, IA for the reception.
I was thrilled with their reception choice. #1 because it’s a very photogenic venue inside. #2 the food is awesome and served very fast! #3 it’s only 7 miles from my studio/home!
(Another fun fact: My younger brother also had his wedding reception there.)
They had me take portraits from “getting ready” until their first dance and the father-daughter/mother-son dance. Which is just right for designing a storybook wedding album. I can’t wait to get to work on it! Although I must say, I’m going to be a little jealous since my own wedding portraits aren’t this good!
Enjoy!

P.S. I apologize (sort of) for sharing so many images. Usually I can narrow it down a bit more, but it’s hard when it’s your own family!!!

Megan : Austin High School : Senior Portraits

I’m trucking right along with my senior portrait season, here at the studio! It’s Megan’s turn in the spotlight today, and boy, can this girl shine!

I loved working with Megan and her mom because they are super sweet people. Megan is just as beautiful on the outside as well! Look at all her amazing images in the slideshow below!
The clothes she chose really worked well and enhanced her natural beauty. I loved all the dresses! I was hoping she’d forget the cute dress we photographed in the water in the dressing room! 😉 Just kidding! I’m sure she wears it better than I would.
Well, back to the grind stone! Have more sessions to proof and another senior this afternoon at 1pm!
Enjoy!

Jordan : Mason City HS : Senior Portraits

Well, ladies and gentlemen. It’s full scale, high school senior portrait season around here at the Rebecca Lynne Photography studio!!! I’m pleased to share my first ’13 Senior blog post.
I know, I know… some OTHER photographers have already been posting seniors for a month now… well, I say poo! 🙂 I believe all good things are worth the wait, and who really wants to be the first kid to get their portraits taken?
I mean, when I was a senior… I wanted to hang out with my friends for a month, have time to go shopping, get a tan… just relax for a while.
Plus, usually it’s still kind of rainy and windy the first half of June. (Although we haven’t seen much rain this year!) I don’t know about you, but I think rescheduling is a pain in the rear end.
*sigh* If only I could control the weather! *another long sigh*

Fortunately, the senior girls I have gotten so far seem to be women of steel! I admire them for looking ever-so-glamorous as I fan them and warn them not to glisten too much! He,hee. Just kidding! (except about the fanning part… I do that! Full-service studio, you know!)
Now, Jordan was no exception to this rule. She was ready for the heat, and I think she made that summer day even hotter! Gotta love this girl’s exotic features. She reminds me of a young Eva Longoria.

We also had a great time taking some shots in her volleyball uniform. She has such a fun personality!

Enjoy!
Becca
P.S. When I asked Jordan ahead of time, what outfits she had planned, she mentioned an “incredibly beautiful grey crop top” and I figured it would be some embellished top… LOL! I guess sometimes the obvious is not so obvious! 😉

Erin : Senior Portraits : Albert Lea High School

Erin had a gorgeously sunny day to take her senior portraits. We sure have been blessed with some nice weather around here lately!
But to tell you the truth, I prefer a few clouds in the sky, it just takes away those harsh shadows that you get when you’re trying to do outdoor pictures at 3 o’clock in the afternoon.
Even with the bright sun, we got tons of amazing outdoor shots. Just look at these!

Naturally gorgeous girl! Love her!
Enjoy,
Becca
