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!

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!
