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!

Senior Session: tanner, citydeck & downtown green bay

He is smart, easygoing, and a natural in front of the camera. We spent his session wandering downtown Green Bay and along the Fox River waterfront. I love the rich textures of the city: brick, iron, boardwalk, and I enjoy getting to know seniors like Tanner and everything that they’re planning for their respective futures. Tanner is still deciding between colleges (although if his sister has anything to say about it, he will join the family at UW-Oshkosh). Either way, one thing is for sure, Tanner has a bright future in front of him. Congratulations and enjoy your senior year, Tanner!

Senior Session: ashley, green bay botanical gardens

botanical-gardens-senior-portraits-oconto-falls-high-school-yearbook-pictures-garden-flowers-park-session-green-bayThe best part about late summer (for photographers) is the way the light changes from pale and bright, to warm and vibrant. August evenings are full of golden, tree-filtered sunbeams that are absolutely wonderful to photograph, especially with a location like Green Bay Botanical Gardens and a beautiful subject like Ashley. Ashley is super involved at Oconto Falls High School from running cross country and track to participating in student council and FFA. She is making the most of her last year of high school. We enjoyed spending the evening photographing her and soaking up that summer light! Cheers to one last year, Ashley!

Senior Session: anthony, lambeau field & anderson dock, door county

Door-County-Senior-Photos-Anderson-Dock-Senior-Portraits-Pictures-Ephraim-Photographer-1 Lambeau-Field-Senior-Photos-Green-Bay-Packers-Senior-Portraits-Pictures-Photographer-2When you have a passion for something as great as Anthony’s passion for the Green Bay Packers, distance is no obstacle. Anthony and his father, Michael, planned Anthony’s senior photos as a destination session from their home in Minnesota. Each year the two of them travel to Lambeau for a game, and it was obvious to the two of them that Lambeau Field would be the perfect location for Anthony’s class photos. I loved the idea of a destination senior session, and we began planning for the two day event with part of the session on the waterfront in Ephraim. Both days had gorgeous, warm weather and we loved getting to know Anthony and his family! Congratulations, Anthony, enjoy your senior year!

Senior Session: bryan, downtown sturgeon bay, door county

Door-County-Senior-Photos-Sturgeon-Bay-Downtown-Urban-Photographer-Pictures-Portraits-High-School-Green-Bay-Pics-NauticalWe snuck Bryan’s senior portrait session in just in time to make the yearbook cut-off. This made for a chilly day outside in early March, but it also created fun and original images. Bryan is a senior at Gibraltar High School in Fish Creek, although he and his family are originally from Arizona. He is thinking about attending UW-Whitewater and studying medical translating, and possibly playing soccer (he plays forward for Gibraltar’s soccer team). We photographed his session in downtown Sturgeon Bay for a fresh, urban feel. Bryan was very easy to get to know, and we loved his sense of style!

As a funny session note, since it was such a windy afternoon, we ducked into business alcoves between shots to keep warm. While in front of a jewelry store, the Sturgeon Bay Police Department showed up investigating a possible break in at that business. We explained why we were there, and they checked the doors to make sure they were secure. I’m guessing wind gusts must have triggered it, but it was a funny little moment that Bryan will get to remember his session by. (Also, we would have been pretty terrible burglars just standing casually outside the door wearing cameras and watching the police with interest.) Congratulations, Bryan, enjoy the rest of your senior year!
