Leia’s Lincoln Nebraska senior pictures

When I met up with Leia and her mom to talk about taking her senior pictures, I knew we were going to get along. First off, I’m a massive Star Wars fan, so just knowing that there’s someone out there named Leia was pretty awesome in itself (and yes, she is named after the movie character). She has a contagious smile, a great attitude, and is open to try just about anything. Those traits make for a perfect storm of amazingness when it comes to a person for me to photograph. Anyone who’s willing and enthusiastic to take some photos inside a bar that smells like sweat and stale beer, just to get some great shots is pretty much my favorite.

Sammy’s fall Lincoln Nebraska senior pictures

Sammy really loves the mountains, which was a bit of a challenge shooting her senior pictures in Lincoln Nebraska. I wanted the session to be as close to what she wanted as possible though, so I scoured Google Earth for a while looking for something that would resemble raised terrain. I found a place that worked very well outside of Omaha, so we took a little road trip, and met up at one of Iowa’s state parks. It was gorgeous! It wasn’t sunny, but we still got some really great shots, and we had a lot of fun trekking through the woods.

We did a second day of shooting, to get some more formal pictures, as well as sneaking a little sunshine into the set, and those also turned out amazing. Working with Sammy was a total joy, and I’d do it again in a heartbeat!

Lauren’s spring Lincoln Nebraska senior pictures

Scheduling Lauren’s Lincoln Nebraska senior pictures was difficult because of all of her activities, but we managed to get them in before graduation! Whew! It was totally worth the wait though. She absolutely killed it, and her photos show it. I really enjoyed working with her, and her amazing smile.

Lauren and Anthony’s Omaha Nebraska engagement pictures

Lauren and Anthony’s Omaha Nebraska engagement pictures were some of my favorites of last year. I’m absolutely ecstatic to be photographing their wedding in a few months!
They’re the kind of people that are up for anything. It really didn’t take much to get them to smile and laugh together. If I had to describe these two as a couple in a single word, it would easily be “happiness”.
