At Dirt Road Photography, we specialize in capturing photos of your senior year. We like to take the time to enjoy the sunsets on one of our farms near Wilber, Nebraska and take pictures of you doing what you love best. Sometimes that includes football, volleyball or other sports. Sometimes it includes your band or music career. Whatever it is that sets you apart, we’re ready to highlight it and celebrate your last year of high school.

Your ultimate senior experience starts here!

inquiry & Booking

The Senior Portrait Experience begins right here – with communication and connection! It's important that I connect with you to ensure we're a great fit to work together, chat about the vision for your senior pictures, and so more! It's also crucial that you are informed of any and all costs associated with your session. I don't want you to feel like you aren't making decisions based upon not knowing what's all involved. We are always willing to work within budgets to give you exactly what you want so please reach out if/when needed.

PLAN AND PREp

Once you've booked your session we will send over a client lounge packed with information including location, style guide, links to purchase specific outfits and more. This is the best time to tell me exactly what you want with your session! Start thinking ahead of time what your ideal location and style is. A week or so before we'll follow up with discussing finalized clothing options to ensure we're on the same page with everything. I'll keep an eye on the weather as well to make sure we have beautiful skies and perfect sunsets.

YOUR SESSION day

It's shooting day! Just relax and be ready to have fun! I will give you tons of ideas and direction throughout your session so no prior modeling needed. ;) I find that the best photos are the candid ones that happen between the posed ones, we'll make sure you're comfortable and relaxed, even if it means me making fun of myself. If there is something specific you want, make sure you let me know ahead of time so we can arrange it. Parents are of course welcome and are actually encouraged to help you feel more comfortable and we want them to feel included in the process as well!

viewing & ordering

Your viewing and ordering session typically takes place 1-2 weeks after your session and is held at our home located in Wilber, Nebraska. During your ordering session you will view all of your edited and re-touched images as well as the different prints and products that we can create with your images. I will help walk you through the process and collections as well as give you descriptions of products and suggest what fits best for your session style. We can work with a variety of budgets to accommodate and make your session memorable. This is the perfect time to purchase gifts to cherish for a lifetime!

“Kelsey took the Best Senior pictures of my son!! All of our pictures, photo album and canvas turned out perfect!! So excited to share with family and friends on Graduation day!” - KELLY S.

“Was happy with the pictures taken of our daughter for her senior year. She was willing to drive to Fairbury to capture this special time and then had the joy of getting another last minute session early fall up in Crete! As we planned for ordering products, putting together the book with senior pictures, we visited about making a book from an old CD of images I had, of our old family farm before it was sold and the buildings torn down. She was able to do this and ended up being a breath-taking, speechless response when this book/gift was given to my Dad on Father's day! Kelsey, thank you for capturing so many memories this last year of special times in our family's life, from young to old, you touched it all!” - KRYSTAL S.

"Kelsey has been our photographer for both of our youngest boys' Senior pics. I wish she could have done our oldest son's...but she would have been, like...2 years old then. Even so - I'm pretty sure she could have toddled through and been just as amazing at it as she is now! Hahah. She has a gift that must be shared. Kelsey has given everything and then gone the extra mile to give even more. I don't know what we would have done without her!" - SOFIA B.

“My boys are always comfortable with Kelsey and is shows in the photos she has taken of them! She shows a true interest in the individual during the session.” - ANGIE A.

“Awesome to work with. Always takes the time to get the perfect picture. Even if it’s freezing cold always has a smile on her face and plenty of patients to deal with a senior that wants to get the perfect shot. Great job though love our pictures!” - GINA S.

We've got an entire client lounge dedicated to things like this! There's a page specifically filled with local locations and example images from those locations. Before your session you will receive a  questionnaire that will help us learn more about you and your vision.

08. HOW DO WE CHOOSE LOCATIONS?

Hair and makeup is not included, but it is highly recommended. We'd rather you book with someone you're comfortable with and already have a relationship with. Your personal hair dresser knows you best and will make you look fabulous on picture day!

07. IS HAIR AND MAKEUP INCLUDED?

Just bring yourself! We our course love when you decide to include props but they aren't necessary. We love to encourage you to think of incorporating anything that has sentimental value to your crew, if that means bringing along grandpa's antique tractor or maybe a vintage car, please do! 

06. DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING TO my SESSION?

Of course! Your senior session should always have a behind the scenes hype team! Better yet, have them join in the fun, book a mini sesh add-on and get some pics taken with them!

05. CAN I BRING SOMEONE WITH ME?

We do not give my clients raw (unedited) images simply because its not a true representation of our work. We spend a great deal of time during the editing process to ensure you receive the highest quality images.

Senior sessions are held on week nights. Please note we highly recommend booking at minimum a month in advance for your session as we do fill up fairly quickly.
