five high school senior pictures

As I’m double checking some back-ups of my past photography, I’ve noticed that there’s five senior portrait sessions that I’ve yet to write about! I can’t believe it! They were taken during the busiest time of my season last year from the end of September through October. Around that time, I was averaging a photo shoot of some sort – weddings, engagements, senior pictures, family portraits, even a 50th anniversary – every other day for a month!!

Here’s a photo from each of those “lost” sessions:

As this school year nears its end, it’s now a great time to plan ahead for high school senior portraits! Don’t wait until the last minute!! Most local high schools have early deadlines for submitting a picture for the school yearbook. I will be posting a senior portrait promotion soon for early bookings, so be sure to check back from time to time!!

High school senior portrait photographer in Red Wing, Minnesota

September 24th, 2008 – I met with a Rosemount High School senior and her mother for a senior portrait session in Red Wing, Minnesota. It was an awesome session and we had a lot of fun as well! She was a great subject to shoot. You could see this on her beautiful, wonderfully smiling face.

One thing that I mentioned to them was that I really wasn’t that familiar with any particular place to shoot. I’ve been to & through Red Wing many times but never really stopped to see the sights, other than being stopped at an intersection waiting for a green light. At the same time, I go through this basically every weekend at some of the weddings I photograph. Chances are likely that I haven’t been to the venue before. I make due with what I’m given for locations, combine that with willing subjects and we create wonderful imagery. You’d be surprised on how the simple locations can make for great photography. We found all these unique little locations in less than one block radius.

Here’s a little sampling of her senior portraits…

I totally love her expression on this next one and I feel the digital post-processing fits it well…

Even after the sun set, we still shot near this parking lot. Isn’t it amazing how simple locations combined with a willing participant can make for great photos??

I wish you the best during your senior year of high school!

Winona Minnesota HS senior portrait photographer

September 16th, 2008 – I met with a sweet, female senior & her father at a rural home at the top of the bluffs in Bluff Siding, Wisconsin for her high school senior portraits. The weather was beautiful and the location was perfect for a number of different looks. A few outfit changes and a bunch of different poses, we were able to create some outstanding senior pictures and had a great time as well. See for yourself!
