Maribel Caves Senior Photos, Wisconsin

Green Bay Senior Photographer Maribel Caves WisconsinWhen Will began planning for his senior session, there was no question on where it would be held. Will loves the outdoors and spends lots of time hiking and hanging out at Maribel Caves County Park in Maribel Wisconsin, just a short drive from his home in Denmark.

Aside from enjoying the outdoors, Will is a talented trumpet player and the captain of his soccer team at Denmark High School. We worked each of these things into the session including a few photos with the happiest pup ever.

Thanks for taking us on a hike with a side of photography on a beautiful early fall day. Enjoy your senior year, Will!

Green Bay Botanical Gardens Senior Photos

Green Bay Senior Photographer High School Senior PhotosWe love when families of high school seniors return! We get to find out what they’ve been up to in their new [grown-up] lives and meet the younger sibling whose turn it is to step into the spotlight. After photographing Ethan, it was Cara’s turn!

Cara is a fashion lover like myself, so planning her session was extra fun for me! We always discuss clothing during our consults and oftentimes seniors send me pictures of their wardrobe options with questions or seeking feedback. It’s the best. Cara chose a wide range of clothing from casual denim to a blue floral wrap dress (my favorite!)

Green Bay Botanical Gardens

We decided to do the entire session at Green Bay Botanical Gardens because of the great variety it offers — woods, brick, flowers, fountain — it’s got it all! Midway through the session, the clouds grew heavy and we ducked into shelter just in time for rain to fall. Luckily for us it was light and brief and we were able to step back out into a garden made even more vibrant by the rainfall. (I love when things work out like that!)

Rustic Senior Photos in Green Bay, Wisconsin

Green Bay Senior Photographer Green Bay High School Senior PhotographerWhen we planned for Bryce’s senior session, I knew a rustic location was a must! We always want to help seniors and their families select a location that feels like them. Senior photos should be unique and customized to the person in the photos. We sent some location options Bryce’s way and he selected a log cabin location in Green Bay and Fonferek Glen which we love for its rustic old granary and tall, grassy fields.

We had great weather for his session. The sun was warm and bright and the evening finished with pink skies. We even got to include photos with his dog and his truck which was extra fun! Congratulations on this milestone, Bryce, and best wishes on everything yet to come!

Anderson Dock Senior Photos, Door County

Door County PhotographerEphraim, Door CountyLauren contacted us looking for a photographer with bright, vibrant color for her destination senior session in Door County. She and her family were traveling into town over Labor Day to spend the weekend with her grandparents in Ephraim. We photograph destination Door County sessions all the time, but usually seniors are from the midwest; Lauren came all the way from Arizona!

As we planned her session she talked about how everyone in her yearbook would have neutral photos, photographed mostly in the desert, and she wanted something unique and popping with color. (You don’t have to tell us twice…chasing vibrant colors and creating interesting color relationships is kind of our jam!)

Unique Lifestyle Senior Photos

On the session day, the wind was strong and the waves crashed up and over the pier at Anderson Dock in the heart of Ephraim. Instead of fighting the wind, we used it to our advantage and captured some lifestyle candids of Lauren with glamorous blowing hair. We had gorgeous golden hour light and finished up the session with a sunset. Thanks to Lauren and her family for sharing a bit of their holiday weekend with us! I can’t wait to see your photo albums as they arrive and get packed for their long trip to the southwest. Enjoy your senior year, Lauren!

Downtown Green Bay Senior Session on the Citydeck

Downtown Green Bay Senior Photos Senior Portrait Photographer Green BaySometimes high school seniors are looking for something sweet and simple. They don’t want to travel across the city for different locations or have full wardrobe changes onsite. And that’s great. We want to give you a relaxed experience and beautiful images, however we can best make that happen. We love a simple golden hour session, especially when it involves the Green Bay Citydeck! I’m a waterfront lover myself (blame it on my Door County roots) so anytime we get to shoot along the river, I’m pleased.

Bryce’s session was on a hot August evening with lots of golden sunshine. We captured some photos along the water, then headed around the corner for some downtown shots with brick and a more urban look. Bryce is thoughtful, observant, independent, and easy to be around. We enjoyed photographing his session and wish him the best of luck in all that comes next!

Door County and Anderson Dock Senior Photos

Door County Senior Photo SessionDoor County Senior PhotographerMost of the time seniors come to us with a sense of what they want — they want fields or water or brick or flowers — but every now and then they come to us with specific ideas. For Brynn, that specific idea was this big bending willow tree in the back of her family’s home. It wasn’t so much a location as it was an object that connected her to childhood. What Brynn didn’t know, is that I’ve also always been obsessed with willows — their droopy leaves that form canopies and filter in warm, ambient light. There is just something so romantic about their beauty which was perfectly matched with Brynn’s lace dress and soft curls.

After capturing some favorites at the willow tree, we headed farther north from Fish Creek into Ephraim for a stop at Anderson Dock, a Door County icon. The clouds covered most of our sunset, but we got a light breeze that blew Brynn’s hair beautifully, and the heavy blue of the sky made the oranges that peeked out all more dramatic. Such a fun and beautiful session!

Anderson Dock and Door County Beach Senior Photos

Whitefish Dunes Door County Anderson Dock Whitefish Dunes Door County Sunset Photos Senior PicturesGrace planned her senior photos for a “destination Door County session”. For she and her family, Door County is a little place they like to escape to, and she knew it would be the perfect location to document her final year of high school.

For Grace’s first location, she knew she wanted Whitefish Dunes, a Wisconsin state park that has lots of good family memories for her. We never get to shoot here for two reasons, the first that it’s on the lake side (so no sunset opportunities) and the second that it’s just a short walk from Cave Point County Park which is one of the most popular locations in Door County because of the escarpment. That means this beachy, woodsy gem always gets overlooked. We were so happy to take a little hike with Grace and her mom down to the beach and capture that soft, flattering, lakefront light. We did a few photos cozied up in the sand, then made our way down to the white stones and briefly into the water.

After Whitefish Dunes, we crossed the peninsula to Anderson Dock in Ephraim. Anderson Dock has some family history for me and also happens to be an epic sunset spot in Door County! The building is iconic and the view is unbeatable…what more could we want? We got there just at the start of golden hour for warm light around the building and docks, then waded out to the end of the slippery pier for the perfect Door County sunset. What a dream session! Congratulations, Grace!

Retro Arcade & Bowling Alley Senior Photos, Door County, Wisconsin

When Liam and his mom arrived to discuss senior photos, before we even got chatting, Liam explained that he was not looking for traditional senior photos in a nature or urban setting. Liam is an artist, set to attend MIAD in fall, and he wanted his photos to be more than a documentation of his graduation. He wanted them to speak to who he is and function as half portrait, half art statement. As many of you know, my background is a bachelors in studio arts, so this spoke to my roots.

Retro 80s Arcade and Bowling Alley

When we got talking about Liam’s vision, he saw a retro bowling alley and abstract lighting. I knew the perfect location immediately: Cherry Lanes arcade and bowling alley in Sturgeon Bay. Liam and his family are not from Door County and weren’t familiar, but as I described the teal and orange seats, vintage arcade games, and our strategy for adding flash gels to create colored lighting, they knew we were on the right track.

Cherry Lanes, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin

At Cherry Lanes we started in the bowling alley with editorial posing and playful lighting. Once in the arcade we added more flash gels to mimic ambient game lighting and got fun with lifestyle shots. Liam was up for everything we wanted to try, even when Ben suggested Liam climb under a pinball machine to catch the green rope lighting. (It was worth it!)

Thanks for trusting us with your vision, Liam, we see lots of great things coming in your future. And special thanks to Cherry Lanes for hosting us!

Having attended a small, country high school myself, I always have a soft spot for seniors from rural schools coming into Green Bay for their senior photos. I remember what it was like to graduate with 86 people and want to find a way to set myself apart.

When we began planning for Morgan’s senior session she knew one thing she for sure did not want, and one things she for sure did want. She didn’t want anything downtown or urban. Bucking the trends of brick and city scenes, Morgan is a country girl at heart with a love for hunting, sports, and working with her hands. The thing she knew she did want was variety. Because of that, we recommended two locations that would make it look like we made four separate stops — field, woods, granary at Fonferek Glen in Green Bay and limestone escarpment and sunset beach photos in New Franken.

Sunset Beach Photos

Morgan is a do it all kind of girl. She rocked the dress and lipstick in a warm, glowy field, showed her badass side in her Shiocton High School letter jacket, then switched into camo and hiked into the woods with her bow. The bright yellow leaves remind us that it was the last week of October, but if you saw her wading into the waterfall or walking along the beach in shorts, you would have no idea that she was the least bit cold. We know Morgan will be able to take on anything!

 

Fall Citydeck Senior Photos, Downtown Green Bay

Green Bay Senior Photographer Downtown Citydeck PhotosI cannot express how excited I am to share these images! Miranda’s session had all the things I love best: golden sunlight, fall color, and cute clothes. It was such a pleasure to get to know her, hear about her life, and enjoy the October weather.

Fall Senior Photos in Green Bay, Wisconsin

When Miranda called to start planning her senior session, we were immediately struck by how independent and decisive she is. This girl knows what she wants and chases after it; we have no doubt that she will achieve anything she puts her mind to. Planning a session in fall, she knew she wanted a place that was woodsy enough to have fall color but still had a meadow area with long grasses. We had the perfect location in mind! Following that up, she was hoping for a waterfront locale, and after a few different options, we chose the Citydeck which worked perfect with her outfit.

We got to share Miranda’s images with she and her loved ones earlier this week and I can’t wait to see them when they arrive! (We’ll share on our Instagram so you can enjoy too!) Best wishes on all your future endeavors, Miranda! It was such a pleasure photographing your session!
