Senior Session: nic, bairds creek green bay

Green-Bay-Bairds-Creek-Senior-Photos-Photographer-East-High-School-Senior-Portraits-Fall-Autumn-WoodsThis year’s late fall meant good things for us photographers, including beautiful color like this through the very last days of October. This worked out great for Nic’s senior session as he was looking for autumn photos in the woods. Nic is an avid hiker and he loves Baird’s Creek in Green Bay for the trails and scenery. We started out photographing a few places we were very familiar with, but then went on to explore extra trails that were new to us and known well by Nic. It felt more like a casual October hike (with camera gear of course!) than a typical senior session. Just another time I was grateful that being a photographer means spending time outside on the best days of the year.

I absolutely love the rich orange and brown tones we got a chance to capture for Nic’s session. I’ve always been a sucker for fall, and it might have something to do with the fact that days like this one – calm, warm, filled with bright color – only happen a few days out of the year. Enjoy your final year, Nic!

Senior Session: dana, green bay botanical gardens

Green-Bay-Botanical-Gardens-Senior-Photos-Photographer-Preble-High-School-Senior-PortraitsI live for late summer days like the one we had for Dana’s session. These are the days where it’s warm into the evening hours, and reaches that perfect golden hour light just before sunset. Days like this make me glad my job has me outside exploring, photographing, and getting to know cool people like Dana.

Dana goes to Preble High School in Green Bay where she is involved in everything music – jazz band, pep band, and head of props for school performances (to name a few). She is funny, fashionable (I mean, check out that blush romper), and easy to get along with. It was a great experience photographing her. Enjoy your final year, Dana, and cheers to an exciting future!

Senior Session: nicole, sturgeon bay waterfront

Door-County-Senior-Photos-Stone-Harbor-Photographer-Senior-Portraits-White-Lace-Inn-Steel-Bridge-Sturgeon-BayWe had the most beautiful overcast day for Nicole’s senior session in downtown Sturgeon Bay. For everyone wishing for sun on their session date, here’s a little secret: bright, cloudy days are the best! The clouds act as a natural softbox and give us beautiful, even light that could not be more flattering.

It’s always fun for me to have seniors with a great sense of style like Nicole has. Patterned high-waisted skirt (love), and a chambray shirt with leggings (which is the perfect outfit to walk that line between summer and fall). It was great getting to know Nicole and hear all about her future aspirations. Have a great final year, and best wishes for a bright future, Nicole!

Senior Session: hope, cave point and pebble beach

Cave-Point-Senior-Photos-Door-County-Photographer-Pebble-Beach-Senior-Portraits-Green-BaySo often we have these confusing Wisconsin weather days, where the percentage of rain jumps up and down, patchy showers are forecasted, and we’re not sure if we should call off our session. On lucky days, we make the drive anyway and are rewarded with dissipating clouds, warm, even light, and on the best days (like at this session) a dreamy pink sunset to finish things off.

Hope’s session took place in Door County, where she attends Gibraltar High School and excels in the arts. We started off at Cave Point for photos up in the woodsy escarpment, followed by a few dance themed shots as the waves crashed up on the shore around her (photos of this coming soon!) Part two of the session was at Pebble Beach in Sister Bay with a gorgeous view of the bay and an opportunity to snag a few sister shots.  Hope is incredibly creative, fun, and spontaneous. We are excited to see what she does with her many talents, and it was an absolute pleasure to photograph her senior session. Cheers to a great final year!

Senior Session: brittany, green bay botanical gardens

Green-Bay-Botanical-Gardens-Senior-Portraits-Pictures-Photos-Southern-Door-High-School-OutdoorsI can’t say enough about how much I loved the outfits Brittany chose for her senior portrait session at Green Bay Botanical Gardens – bright, summery colors, lots of texture, and cute accessories! We had the most gorgeous evening of warm, summer sun which was perfect for a girl who described her senior portrait style as chic and girly with lots of sunlight.

It was great talking with Brittany about school, programs she’s involved in (like Big Brothers Big Sisters) and her plans to take CNA courses this fall and graduate early. She is full of ambition (and some great stories that kept us entertained throughout her session!)  Only one semester left to go at Southern Door High School; I hope it’s a great one, Brittany!

Senior Session: cori, depere preserve

De_Pere_Nature_Preserve_Senior_Portraits_Golden_Light_OutdoorsI love fall; it has always been my favorite season.  It’s not just the leather boots, scarves, and pumpkin lattes though, it also has to do with the way the light begins to change. In autumn, as the sun begins to set earlier in the day, it creates a more dramatic golden hour – with light filtering through colored leaves and making this warm, glowing effect. This is the perfect light we had for Cori’s senior session.

Cori was so fun to work with; she is quick-witted, bold, and attentive.  Her entire session was filled with jokes and conversations about travel, future plans, family.  She was completely natural in front of the camera and photographing her made for a fun afternoon. Whatever Cori decides to do in the future, we know she will be doing it with gumption.  Enjoy your senior year, Cori!

 

Senior Session: maggie, cave point door county

Door_County_Senior_Photos_Golden_Light_Modeling_Cave_PointI have had the pleasure of knowing Maggie for years.  She is genuine, caring, and incredibly talented.  The world is a more beautiful place because of the way her curiosity delves into it, turns it over, and yearns to discover more.  Being asked to document Maggie’s senior year was special to Ben and I – showing this moment she is in, as she decides what she wants to do and where to go next.

We had beautiful light as we photographed at Cave Point and a field north of Sturgeon Bay.  Maggie and her sister Juliana played around, joked, and even did a little dancing, which kept the session fun and relaxed.  We ventured into tall grass and down rocky cliff edges all with the spirit of playfulness and the goal of creating beautiful images of someone special.  Enjoy your senior year, Maggie!

 

Senior Session: summer, downtown sturgeon bay, cave point

Door_County_Senior_Photos_Cave_Point

 

Senior photography is always such a blast for us; we get to explore new locations and meet some really cool people.  Summer is from Southern Door’s class of 2015, and looking forward to one last year before heading off to college.  We met in downtown Sturgeon Bay for her session, taking a few photos at urban spots we scouted earlier, as well as the iconic steel bridge.  Summer brought along her really cool Schwinn cruiser to use in her session (which being a bike lover myself, I was pretty excited for!)  We stopped off at Cave Point for a few more shots and climbed down to the water’s edge.  Summer’s session was so fun; we loved getting to know her, her family, and her sweet boyfriend Michael.  Enjoy your last year, Summer!

Senior Session: alyssa, crossroads at big creek, sturgeon bay

Dantoin-Sturgeon-Bay2Each year we choose a few soon-to-be seniors from local schools to be our senior reps.  We choose bold, fashionable, outgoing students who have something interesting to offer.  Alyssa is no exception; she is smart, sweet and involved in nearly everything in school and out including being a big sister for Big Brothers Big Sisters and being class president.  Somehow, with all of these commitments, she still manages to work on the side.  To say that Alyssa is hardworking and looking toward the future is an understatement.  For Alyssa’s session we chose a mix of downtown urban locations, and rustic fields at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay.  Alyssa and her family were wonderful to get to know and the session was a blast!  Glad to have you as our rep, Alyssa!
