Portraits: victoria’s 15th birthday session, beach and preserve

After setting up Luis’s senior photo session and planning for photos at Voyageur Park and downtown Green Bay, Matilde had an idea to celebrate her daughter’s 15th birthday: her own portrait session. Victoria loves natural, artistic photos that have fashion photography influences, which is a perfect fit for our style. Together we looked at some source images to pick the perfect locations – one with blue water and a sandy beach, and the other with rustic fields of wildflowers and warm sunlight. We got exactly what we were hoping for, and Victoria chose outfits that complimented her boho vision for the session. Victoria celebrated her 15th birthday away from her extended family, and we hope that this session helps her feel extra special on this big milestone! Happy Birthday, Victoria!

Seniors: kasey, de pere nature preserve

When Kasey and her family got in touch about a senior session, I had to do a double-take on her name. I’ve only met two other Kaseys who spell their names like mine, so it’s a rarity to say the least. Kasey was looking for a location that was wild and rustic for her senior photos, and we found the perfect spot just outside of De Pere. I love the intense greens, endless fields, and soft line of trees at the nature preserve, and they were complimented nicely by Kasey’s blush dress and lace up boots.

We ended up with a great day – clouds covered the sky providing even light, and soft breezes were just enough to add movement to our photos. Congratulations, Kasey! Enjoy your senior year!

Seniors: greta, botanical gardens and de pere waterfront

I have always loved bold fashion choices. I may not have been savvy enough to figure out what I could (and could not) pull off when I was a senior in high school, but seniors like Greta already know exactly how to put an outfit together. When Greta showed up at the Green Bay Botanical Gardens in a yellow floral jumpsuit, I may have made the heart eyes emoji with my actual face. I love the vibrant color choice and it was a perfect fit for a summer evening (especially with those boho platforms!)

Greta is a senior at Green Bay East High School in the class of 2018. She is involved in soccer, cross-country, and yoga and loves art and painting. She spent the summer as a lifeguard and is currently thinking about a path in medicine for her future. We wish her the best of luck on all her future endeavors!

Seniors: luis, downtown green bay & voyageur park

Luis’s senior session was planned for the rainy month of July and needed to be rescheduled due to a storm that passed through. Happily, we ended up with a gorgeous afternoon with golden sun going down over the water and tree line at Voyageur Park on the De Pere waterfront. Before heading into De Pere, we spent time in downtown Green Bay capturing photos inspired by urban lines and architecture – something Luis plans to study in the future. There are so many we love from this session and we had a hard time narrowing them down for sharing! Enjoy your senior year, Luis!

Seniors: cassidy, botanical gardens, green bay

Years ago Cassidy’s cousin, Jenessa, was one of the very first high school seniors we photographed. Since then we’ve photographed Jenessa’s brother’s senior photos, Cassidy’s sister’s senior photos, and even Jenessa’s wedding day last summer. We love this fun-loving down-to-earth family!

Cassidy chose Green Bay Botanical Gardens for her senior session in mid-June, which is one of our favorite times to be at the garden (especially because the peonies are in bloom!) We had beautiful weather and a fun afternoon exploring the garden together while talking about school, summer plans, and Cassidy’s Converse collection. Best wishes on your senior year, Cassidy!

Seniors: cassidy, heritage hill historical park, green bay

heritage-hill-senior-photos-log-cabin-winter-green-bay-wisconsin-photographer-yearbook-pictures-ashwaubenon-high-schoolUsually once the leaves have fallen and the days get shorter, senior season has ended. Most sessions take place on warm afternoons in summer with a few individuals waiting until early October. So when we get a call about winter senior photos, it’s a rare opportunity! Cassidy’s session took place at Heritage Hill State Historical Park in Green Bay. It was the perfect location for a winter session, with barns, cabins, and wood piles all around. The day was chilly and windy (just a few short weeks before Christmas), but Cassidy was in good spirits and the session was fast moving and fun. Cassidy is into video games and good books, and she is looking forward to graduation in June when she can start on her next adventure. Congratulations, Cassidy!

Seniors: kirsten, bairds creek & de pere preserve

I love the crisp air, the bright colors, the crunch of leaves underfoot – all of it. This fall arrived later than usual, which was perfect for photographers like us, because we got a chance to capture it well into November. Kirsten’s session was on a cool late October day and involved cute clothes, playing in leaves, and a few photos with her brother and sister. The entire session was relaxed as we chatted with Kirsten and her family, and she demonstrated a few tennis and soccer skills for us. Kirsten is down-to-earth and fun to be around. She participates in sports at school and enjoys water activities, being outside, and painting. We adored all the little session details and can’t wait to deliver their album and wall art. Congratulations! Enjoy your senior year, Kirsten!

Senior Session: paige, botanical gardens & downtown green bay

We meet fun people in cute clothes and spend the afternoon making beautiful images. Paige’s session at Green Bay Botanical Gardens and downtown Green Bay in the Broadway District was especially fun because she brought along her best friend, Hanna. The day was filled with warm fall light balanced by rough urban textures – a perfect combination for vibrant images. Paige is a student at Notre Dame High School where she is involved in sports and attends many school sporting events with friends. She is enjoying her senior year and looking forward to everything that comes after. Congratulations, Paige (Hanna too!)

Senior Session: isabelle, door county beach & downtown de pere

Isabelle attends East De Pere High School where she is heavily involved in clubs, Spanish, and athletics. Outside of school she is a talented figure skater and teaches figure skating on the side in addition to her hostessing job. Her variety of interests and fashionable sense of style made for a fun and dynamic session (including a late August dip in Lake Michigan for some splashing and twirling!) The family beach house was lovely and we adored photographing on the Door County waterfront. Downtown De Pere gave us the perfect balance with some richer colors, rougher textures, and some great urban vibes. Congratulations, Isabelle, enjoy your senior year!
