Julie – High School Senior Photography

Julie is a Senior from Appleton.  We chose locations from downtown, to parks, by the river and her own back yard for her senior photography.

Having multiple outfits give your photos variety.  This also helps you express yourself and show your own personal style.  On occasion it also helps with the age old struggle between Moms and Seniors on what they each think looks good in photos.  You both can win.  Some rules of thumb for clothes selection.  Solid colors that are more of the earth tones work best, very bright bold colors tend to distract.  Generally we avoid stripes and prints and patterns, they tend to look busy and can be distracting.  You can never go wrong with black.  White looks great against very light colored backgrounds.  Now if your absolute favorite outfit has stripes and patterns and is bold colored, then by all means you should bring it with you.  We always feel great in our favorite outfit and that helps make for great senior photographs.

Appleton Engagement Photos @ Lawrence

Last Week I had the pleasure of photographing Lindsay and Tom’s engagement photos. We had a great time walking to the different areas and getting to know each other. They laughed at my bad jokes, they laughed with each other, all around a great shoot. I always enjoy seeing how my couples relate to each other and knowing this before the wedding helps me on the wedding day.

Appleton Engagement Photos

Here are a few engagement photos from last weekend. They loved the outdoors and wanted to do a little something with the colors. We were at a few places but ended up at Peabody park in Appleton. I love going to this park for it’s many areas to shoot. Many years ago with the help of my mentor this is where I learned to “see” light. It has been a while since I have been here and it needs to get back on my radar.


It is that time of year again. The summer before Senior year of High School. Hannah goes to Little Chute High School and is the last child and 3rd daughter of my best friend from High School. I photographed his other 2 daughters and if you search my blog you will find them here. Just like her 2 sisters we had a great time, also like her sisters it was extremely hot outside. It must be a family thing. Hannah held up great, I on the other hand, lets just say needed a shower when I was done.
