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!
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
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
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!
I was thrilled to have Cher and her second son, Parker, in the studio again this year. Her oldest, Tyler, came to have his senior portraits last year and so I felt totally confident knowing that they loved my work and wanted more!
It’s so nice when you really start to know your client’s personal tastes. It makes everything so much easier and I can relax knowing what they expect and that I can provide them with images they will love.
Parker is just the cutest name. And he’s just the sweetest guy with good looks to match!
I’m wondering if it’s a requirement for quarterbacks to be handsome?
Remembering back to my high school days, it seemed like it was always one of the hottest guys in the class… and then look at the guys in the pros… Mmmmm! 😉
And here is Parker! Handsome little devil!
We also had fun shooting some on-location around Northwood, IA and just taking it easy since we had such a perfect day.
I hope they love these just as much as Tyler’s session… I have a pretty good feeling they will!
