I had the privilege of shooting Elena’s senior portraits last weekend. I’m always honored when new clients entrust me for monumental moments in their lives. Senior photos are something to be cherished forever – something to show your grandchildren one day. Elena is such a sweetheart, and she was a natural, as you can tell from the photos! I had such a tough time narrowing down the photos. These are just a handful of many of my favorites.
My sister started talking about me shooting my nephew’s senior photos back when he was in middle school. It seemed so far off. He was, after all, only six when I got married. But with the blink of an eye, here we are. His senior year. Last weekend, I had a great time visiting both recognizable and unique spots around Topeka to capture his senior photos. There are SO many images to choose from (over 600, to be exact). Here are a few of my favorites.
Do you have a student graduating high school this year? It’s not too late for portraits! I think fall is the best time for photos, and turnaround time is just a few weeks. Contact me if you’d like to discuss.
There is a lot going on in our country right now. And while it may seem trivial in the grand scheme of things, maybe a glimpse of something happy is just what we need. Most high school proms were cancelled this year due to COVID-19. But for a lot of the ladies, isn’t one of the best parts of prom dressing up, anyway? So why not get fancy and do a mini photoshoot with your prom date? That’s exactly what this couple did – and I was honored to be a part of it.
In addition to shooting Damon’s senior portraits yesterday, I got to take photos of his immediate and extended family! They had done their research and preparation on location, poses, and props – which made my job easy. Not to mention how photogenic they were. I loved shooting at Krug Park in St. Joe. You can hardly tell it’s a park from the cool stone backgrounds.
Yesterday afternoon I got to photograph Damon’s senior portraits in a unique new spot in St. Joe – and it was perfect! (Aside from record high temperatures.) If I lived closer I’d shoot there more often. I felt like I was visiting ancient ruins in a European country. Bonus: he did a great job posing, smiling, and being himself. I’m very happy with the results!

Last weekend I had the opportunity to shoot my first “official” senior portraits – and I loved it! There’s something different about getting to work with someone one-on-one that I really enjoyed. You can have fun with different poses, and you don’t have to worry about a lot of people looking good at the same time. Daniel was very receptive and photogenic, as you can see!
