Downtown Green Bay Senior Photos

Soren and Erik’s senior session was planned for downtown Green Bay to provide us with an urban landscape for their high school yearbook photos. Twin brothers, Erik and Soren attend Notre Dame Academy where they love to play music, participate in German club, and spend time skateboarding and mountain biking. They liked the idea of a downtown location and we love the clean lines, texture, and creamy neutral tones that photograph so well. With a final year filled with IB classes, their academics are keeping them busy, but will set them up well as they prepare to head off to college next year. Best wishes for the future, Soren and Erik!

Seniors: gonzalo, bairds creek, green bay

When planning for Gonzalo’s senior photos, he and his family knew they wanted two things: fall color and to incorporate his soccer jersey. We knew we could make that happen and gave suggestions for a few different locations, the family eventually settling on Bairds Creek in Green Bay. Gonzalo plays soccer for Preble High School and plans to play in college as well. His second outfit was a great choice for late fall with the rich crimson brining out the warm tones in the leaves. We had a fun session and can’t wait to share their prints and album with them!

Seniors: claire, downtown de pere & bairds creek

Before every session we sit down with clients to get to know them and what their session goals are. During this time we also chat about style, location, and wardrobe “dos and don’ts”. I love getting to  know seniors and their parents so we are all comfortable at the session and we can make images that show off their unique personalities and sense of style.

Claire and Pat were such a joy to work with from our very first meeting! They are fun, funny, and Claire is natural in front of the camera. When we got to our first location and she stepped out of the car in this vintage, linen romper, I was so excited! It was a bold, fun outfit choice, and it totally paid off. We started the session downtown for some urban shots and ended at Bairds Creek where the color was just starting to turn and had that dreamy, warm sun that only happens in September. Enjoy your senior year, Claire!

Seniors: alli, green bay botanical gardens & green bay beach

It’s so fun for us when seniors choose two locations that are completely different from one another. With our first stop at Green Bay Botanical Gardens, we had beautiful greens, flowers, and fountain with everything precise and perfect, and with our second beachy location we got the wind and water completely untamed and beautiful. As we got to the bay, the wind picked up along the shore and we were worried about how it would affect pictures, but we actually love Alli’s windblown hair and dress, especially as the sunset glows in the background! Alli is sporty, easygoing, and fun, and we loved getting to know her and her family. Best wishes on your senior year and beyond, Alli!

Seniors: karlie, downtown green bay & bairds creek

It’s no secret how much we love fall! This year, with the arrival of baby Juniper, I knew we were going to miss most of the gorgeous color and warm fall light. Lucky for us, we had a couple sessions right before our baby girl arrived, like this one with Karlie! Karlie’s session was one of our favorites because she chose two very different locations which gave us really different looks – downtown Green Bay was all about the modern lines and urban textures, and Bairds Creek was filtered light and natural spaces. I adored her outfit choices (I mean, plum suede boots? Yes please!) and we had a great time exploring different poses and expressions with her. Karlie is on the swim team and throws for Ashwaubenon High, so we ended the session with a few photos in her letter jacket with some of her sports paraphernalia. Enjoy your senior year, Karlie!

Seniors: kellen, voyageur park de pere

Kellen’s senior session was one of the last we photographed before going on maternity leave.   The leaves were just starting to change and the sky had the soft moody tone it gets in fall. It was the perfect day for portraits. We chose Voyageur Park in De Pere as our location because it offered greenery, waterfront, and more industrial looks. Diverse locations like that make for sessions with good variety. Kellen was a natural in front of the camera and we had a blast capturing his personality and making timeless images. Since it had been years since their last family portrait, the {K} Family decided to add on a mini family session and include Kellen’s brothers, Jamie and Reed. Enjoy your senior year, Kellen!

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!)
