I have two goals for my photo sessions: get great photographs and have fun taking them. I wasn’t too worried about the first goal because I always overshoot. That way I know for sure that there will be some great photographs. I knew that I had accomplished the second goal when Skylar’s mom kept saying how much fun she had. I will say that this vibrant and beautiful, young lady made my job very easy. I ended up taking way too many photos which made it really difficult to choose the best ones. This is when overshooting gets me in trouble.
We ended up going to two different locations. Pine Tree Pond Park was our first location. I have a close connection with this park. My backyard leads right to it and I spent many of my teenage and adult years going to it. It is a beautiful park and has many great spots for backgrounds.
Our second location was at the Cottage Grove Ravine. This state park has lots of fun and interesting backgrounds so I was pretty excited when Skylar and her mom chose this place.
It’s always fun to see how the shot was taken so I love when my clients take pictures while I am shooting. Photo credit goes to Skylar’s mom, Jess.

My 2 biggest challenges for photo sessions are unknown territory and bright, sunny days. Sam’s session was on her parents property in River Falls, WI (a place I had never been) and it was a bright, sunny day. The property was beautiful and we had many options for backgrounds. Sam loves nature. She had me crawling deep into the woods but it was worth it for the photos we were able to get.
Sam also loves animals and I do too. I also love any excuse to incorporate an animal into a photo session. The dog and cat were planned but I don’t think her mom thought I would try and incorporate chickens too. I love chickens and just couldn’t resist. Are they not the cutest?

Harriet Island, one of my favorite places to do photo sessions. It has a wide variety of backgrounds and my friend Liz lets me take clients on her steamboat, Covington Inn Bed and Breakfast, for a few photographs. You must check it out if you have never been
Jamie is a new client who found me on Google. We had a fantastic session and got some really great photographs. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday to this beautiful, young lady. Adriana turns 18 today. I have been taking her pictures for many years so I have to put up some of the early ones too….sorry Adri. This fall she will be joining the Nursing program at North Dakota State University. Good luck on all your future life journeys. Can’t wait to see what you do!
For her senior photos, we went to 3 different locations. The first one was on my sisters property on Grey Cloud Island.
The second location was at Harriet Island. We did some photos around the river and then went on my friends steamboat located right on the river. It is a Bed and Breakfast so check it out if you are looking for a fun place to stay. https://www.covingtoninn.com/
The last location was on Adriana’s parents property right around sunset. I’m not a big fan of direct sunlight during the day for lighting but I LOVE sunset. The bright light from the day turns magical towards the evening hours.
