Senior year is a memorable time for most high school students, and capturing those special moments through senior pictures is a cherished tradition. There are countless ways to make your senior pictures unique and memorable. In the case of Ben, a senior at Heartland High School in Henderson, Nebraska, his passion for farm life was the inspiration for his stunning senior pictures.
The farm life is deeply ingrained in Ben’s heart. So we decided to take his senior pictures surrounded by the things he loves most. We were lucky enough to shoot at sunset on a beautiful bean field with a pivot in the background, creating a perfect backdrop for his senior pictures. The rustic environment gave us the perfect opportunity to capture Ben in his element. And those pictures are still some of my favorites to date.
We started out at his farm filled with grain bins and beautiful white barns. A photographers dream for shooting with neutral colors! Although, often times my favorite part is just meeting all the cute little farm kittens when we’re shooting senior pictures.
The highlight of the shoot was capturing Ben’s beautiful classic orange Ford truck. We couldn’t pass up the opportunity of including it in his senior pictures. It was such a special moment to see him surrounded by the beauty that the farm life offers. We also made sure to include his FFA jacket in some of the pictures, as we know how important this organization is to Ben and to many others (including myself!)
As we continued shooting, it was evident how much the farm life meant to him. And I was reminded of how much I love sharing these beautiful moments and experiences with everyone. The farm life is often overlooked in today’s society, but it’s something that is vastly important to our small town communities here in Nebraska.
Ben’s senior picture session is a perfect example of how capturing a person’s passions and hobbies can make their senior pictures unique and special. We captured Ben’s love of the farm life, and the result was stunning. Celebrating seniors’ passions makes the pictures memorable and tailored specifically to that individual. Overall, shooting senior pictures on a farm is a great way to showcase beautiful scenery. And some of the best memories that one has made throughout their high school years.
