Class of 2023 – Skylar

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.

Class of 2023 – Samantha

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?

Class of 2023: Jamie

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!
