I do love showcasing indoor sports outdoors or in unexpected habitats. It adds an element of “cool” to the photos to do something different with a sport typically played indoors or on a beach. I love to see how ideas look in a place unexpected, like a dancer in a back alleyway or a volleyball […]

Many seniors struggle with what to bring to their session as far as props & extras. I believe that there is a fine line between enough and too much. Start with the priorities. Are you in sports/activites? If so, make sure you have your uniforms, medals and all of your equipment. In this sense, I’d […]

I know, I know… sunrise is so early. However just check out Ella’s sunrise senior session. That gorgeous light on her face with all of the gorgeous flowers at Greenwood Nursery is absolute perfection. Sunsets are equally as amazing, but those session times go quick. If you want to take advantage of that glowy, summer […]

Murray County Central Senior, Camdyn, was literally one of the most fun sunrise sessions! It was an overcast morning, which gave us some of the most amazing light as the morning went on! The light cloud coverage gave off the most glowy light. Camdyn’s outgoing personality made for an extra easygoing, relaxed photoshoot! Time just […]

I freaking loved working with Aidyn, Canby MN senior! She chose to do her first session in the Madison MN area to have some different backgrounds than her classmates. Here where we explored grasslands, the golf course, downtown and more while capturing her beautiful, happy spirit! This session gave us all the feels too as […]

Canby High School Senior, RyAnn’s senior pictures were absolutely effortless. This girl is stunning. She had all of the poses I gave her and modeling vibes down. Her style was on point, hair and makeup was on point. It was seriously so perfect! This was the first senior that I ever photographed at McGrory Gardens […]

There is nothing that I love more than hanging out with a couple who love each other like these two. Ethan & McKenna met in high school and have been together ever since! I love that they are high school sweethearts. We had an incredible engagement session at Buffalo Ridge Resort in Gary SD. It […]

If sunshine was a person, it would be Bella! She is such a light in the world and we had an amazing time at her senior session in the Madison MN area! She is going to accomplish so many amazing things in her life! I have no doubt about it! LAC QUI PARLE HIGH SCHOOL […]

Meet Kylie! Such a smart, funny, sweet girl! I may also be biased because this beautiful senior is my niece. We had so much fun exploring Dawson MN for her senior session. Her style was on point and her location ideas were amazing as well! So happy I was able to spend this time with […]

There is just something about these two. It’s as simple as that. Jacob & Kelsey are just so special. Their wedding day was filled with an incredible and indescribable love, not just for each other and their families, but for God. Both of these two live a life made to honor Him and it was […]

The best piece of advice I can give to all of my seniors would be to relax. We’ve prepped for the session and prepared as best we could. Now it’s session time, we’ve met at our designated location and are ready to get started. Take a deep breath and know that all I want is […]

One of the biggest struggles I feel with planning your senior session is determining what you want from your locations. Do you like to be surrounded by trees, tall grass and flowers? Do you want to be surrounded by architecture, industrial settings and modern buildings? Sometimes you might have a specific location in mind, which […]

I don’t like there to be any surprises when it comes to the process so this is what to expect after your senior session. Once we’ve wrapped up shooting, your senior gallery will be delivered via email in about 6-8 weeks. That link will show you the best, edited photos taken from the session. From […]

What you don’t see are the moments in between. I think the best thing that happens during a senior session doesn’t have anything to do with the actual pictures. Don’t get me wrong, the priority is amazing photos. But to me, it’s the experience that each person on the other side of my camera has […]

Do you have a lot of locations that you want to take photos for your senior session? I love that you have places that you love picked out! I cannot wait to explore them with you. One thing I want you to keep in mind is that we want to be taking pictures more than […]

A lot goes into planning your senior session, but here are a few things to keep in mind to be prepared for your senior session! Planning on getting a tan? Your natural skin color is the very best tone for your eyes and hair color, but I completely understand wanting to be a little bit […]

Choosing professional hair and makeup or doing it yourself is a personal preference. Here are a few thoughts that may help your decision! Many seniors are skilled in DIY hair and makeup and know how they look and feel best. If this is the case, I’d plan to wear “slightly” heavier make-up than normal. This […]

Senior sessions have always held a special place in my heart. Looking back on high school senior myself, I really loved that time in my life. I loved my friends and classmates. I loved who I was, even when I didn’t feel confident or like I knew exactly who I was. Looking back on my […]

I would consider myself a subject focused photographer, not location focused. This simply means I believe that the subject (and lighting) are the most important part of the photo. The first thing we want to take into consideration about any location we shoot is the light. A beautiful background is great for sure, but proper […]

The key to any successful, beautiful senior session has less to do with clothes or props and everything to do with light. You may have heard that cloudy days are best for photography, which they have their pros, but it simply isn’t 100% true. Sunshine can help create some of the most magical images because […]
