I've known Miranda since her freshman year of high school. I became good friends with her brother my first year at Saint Albert & quickly became acquainted with her during our time together in yearbook. This girl is bound to do great things one day & I'm so fortunate to have been given the opportunity to capture just the beginning of it.
If you get the opportunity to shoot a girl with copious amounts of freckles on her face- you take it & run with it.
Mia said she wanted something a little different than the average senior shoot. I think this fit her perfectly.
Jocelyn is a firecracker & a force to be reckoned with. I couldn't have asked for a better senior to allow me to test out some new techniques.
If you're willing to climb precarious ladders to reach a location- I think we'll get along just fine.
Lately I've been forgetting halfway through shoots that the person in front of me is a senior in high school. Annika blew me away with her infectious smile & positive outlook on life. Nothing beats the freedom to create some art with amazing people like this.
I had the greatest experience shooting Sarah's senior portraits. We were able to forget that we've only known each other for a few weeks & sing out hearts out to Cherub, Miley & The Strokes. This girl was all for jumping into Lake Cunningham during a thunderstorm & for that- I am forever grateful.
I guarantee you Mylinh has the bubbliest personality in Omaha. When I first met her at a band practice at her church she was so open & ready to get creative with her photos & I think it shows.
Monica & I share a love for all things neutral-toned & floral. Can you blame us?
The reality of shooting with seniors you've never met before is being okay with getting nervous. you're nervous, they're nervous- trust is all you really have within the first hours of shoot. I'm a strong believer in showing subjects how beautiful they are & filling them with confidence is the most important thing.
Anna lit up during our second session. She saw herself during the final minutes of golden hour said "YES!" That's the only reaction I needed to know she truly enjoyed her time with me & I'm so grateful for her trust.
This shoot was a long time coming with Brianna. After months of planning & dodging unsavory weather- we finally got the chance to shoot together & the results were out of this world. She's a real gem.
I love when seniors allow me artistic freedom & just let a session flow naturally. Thank you, Natalie.
