Dickinson Senior Pictures – complete sessions

Mikaela made the trip from Dickinson to Hazen for her senior pictures session.  She chose the Complete Senior Session, which includes both time in the studio and outdoor locations.  I like to tell the girls to pack up everything – we may not be able to use it all, but at least you have it.   If you’re not sure, just bring it anyway.   I have collected a huge variety of backdrops and props as well as have several indoor sets.  Sometimes something you may not be sure about will looks great with something I have, or we’ll get a great idea while browsing through the stack of backdrops.  Bring things you love and know you look great in.  But also be sure to bring along tops that are somewhat simple – solid colors paired with textures (lace, gauze, chunky sweaters, etc.) look fabulous and offer more choices of backgrounds.  Its much easier to blend together a solid colored top with a more colorful, patterned backdrop.  You can add interest to your outfits with accessories, scarves, hats, jewelry, headbands, and shoes.  I have backgrounds that range from vintage feeling to bright and colorful, and from rustic to contemporary.  Whatever you bring we are sure to find something perfect to go with it!

After finishing up in the studio we pack up everything and head out to some of the great locations we have around Hazen.  We have lots of great places right here, all within a few minutes driving – an old alley, town streets, wheat fields, tree lines, river, bridges, old buildings and more.  Again, its easiest to pair up busy backgrounds with simpler outfits, but the best outfit is certainly the one you feel great in!  I will help you pick the best outfit with the best location – you just need to bring lots of choices!

A complete session does not have an limitations on clothing changes…so, again, bring it all.  Plan on approximately 3 hours of time and we’ll come up with a variety of looks for your senior pictures – both in the studio and out and about!

Making your senior pictures unique to you is as simple as bringing along some of your favorite things….like your pet!  Taylor brought along her adorable little dog to join her in a few poses, which turned out to be absolutely the cutest photos!  Other things to think of bringing to your session include sports items, including balls, jerseys, equipment, warm-ups, etc.  Music, instruments, books or collectibles are also fun personal props to consider.

After finishing up in the studio, we loaded up the cars and went to some great locations right around town in Hazen, North Dakota.  I have spent quite a bit of time searching out great places all within driving distance to the studio.  We can get to various places, each with a unique look within just a few minutes of each other, creating a great variety of senior photos for you to choose from.  Choose places such as train tracks, old alleys, fields, gravel roads, riverside, downtown sidewalk and a pretty park.  It’s up to you and what you like!

We then chose to spend another day in some special places close to Tayler’s home town. Places she knew and liked and felt would make her photos more personal.  She had some great spots!  Sunflower fields are gorgeous, but challenging!  Be prepared to encounter some bugs.  Along the way to the field she picked out, we came across an abandoned farm with a great old fence.

We pulled over and grabbed a few photos there, which turned out to be some of my favorites from her senior photos session. Killdeer Senior Pictures   North Dakota senior photos photo

Stylish Senior Pictures – Hazen, North Dakota

Laci had some pretty specific ideas about her senior pictures.  As she was browsing the internet she came across Delanie’s Audrey Hepburn photos, which in turn prompted her to give me a call and share her vision.   She wanted something a little more stylized, a little glamorous and quite contemporary looking.  Laci arrived with her hair done in an almost 40′s style curl, make-up done to accent her fabulous cheekbones complete with striking red lipstick and an awesome wardrobe!  We kept the backgrounds and props very  minimal, concentrating on striking poses that played up her angels and unique look. As the sun sank, we took a few steps out the front door and, as the snow lightly fell, captured some great outdoor shots.

Don’t be shy to ask a lot of questions when you talk with potential photographers.  Tell them what you vision is and what your ideas are.  Browse the internet and find what stands out to you, what feels like “you”.

Here’s an blog post  I wrote quite a few years ago about choosing your senior photographer….it all still applies today.

Give me a call….I love coming up with new ideas and the best way to do that is together!

Senior pictures couldn’t be prettier than at sunset.  But it does take some planning, so if a beautiful sunset is part of your wish list for your senior pictures, be sure to let me know in advance.  And not only sunset, we can also do some night photos – I will post some night photos to the blog soon.

creating senior photos that reflect who you are and give you memories to last a life time.

After you set you date, you will receive a complete guide to preparing for your session.  It will include information such as clothing choices, make-up preparation, how to pack and suggestions for items to bring along

that will help you express the real you.

Don’t be shy to let me know what your ideas are…I love to try new things, locations, etc.
