Something I’ve been really focusing on that’s been on my heart is shooting MORE seniors all across the state of Nebraska. My absolute passion is being a Nebraska High School Senior Photographer and my goal is to expand further and further to meet seniors from across the state. So, when I was contacted and asked if I’d travel to Hastings, I jumped at the opportunity to come meet Oaklyn and visit his favorite places around the area!
There are a lot of things to consider when booking your outdoor photo shoot. Many people book their shoot thinking that the afternoon would be the best time to shoot since there is plenty of sunlight, but this is actually one of the worst times to do an outdoor shoot.
When asked what’s the number one thing you should do to get ready for your senior sesh my answer is always the same. Relax, binge a few episodes of your favorite tv show and chug water. The rest will fall into place! Nebraska will always throw us a curveball with weather, or landscape or bugs while shooting pictures, but we can do our best to walk in with fun attitudes and that alone will make any senior session a success!
Katie came to me with the idea of ice cream and tall “white” buildings. I nodded questioning it at first, but I love giving my high school seniors what they want. So, I jumped in ready to tackle something new and different than my normal sessions. Little did I know, it wouldn’t disappoint!! Katie created the most gorgeous images and I LOVED the combo we came up with!

My favorite thing about senior sessions is getting to know my seniors. When you live in Nebraska, you can almost bet by talking to someone you have something in common or know some who knows the same person as you. It’s my favorite part of my job! And when I meet seniors from Crete, Nebraska I know we’ll have a TON in common with each other!
Being a photographer near Lincoln, Nebraska I sometimes dip into a new client genre. Most of my senior sessions are held with farm or nature as the scenery so when I get a request for downtown Lincoln, I’m totally down for it! Lincoln, Nebraska sunsets are equally as magnificent as our sunsets out here in small town Nebraska.
