I did Stefan & his twin sister Nicole as a joint session.  We did the indoor session 1st and then had to reschedule the outdoor session due to rain.  The outdoor session was held on a very (and I mean very) windy day at Muirhead Farmhouse in rural Plato Center.  Stefan is very involved with Boy Scouts – in fact he is an EAGLE SCOUT! So naturally he wanted to incorporate his uniform in the pictures.  Here is some interesting info about Stefan:

Alex – ’13 South Elgin High School

Published by Jan under family,senior,teen

Love this brick wall! It is right outside the studio and it makes an awesome backdrop for images!
Love this family! Aren’t they gorgeous?

This family is a repeat client also. I did Sam’s senior pictures a couple of years ago so when Carrie called and said she wanted to combine Alex’s senior session with a family session I was elated! We had a chilly Saturday morning for the session, but everyone did great – the fall colors were beautiful and no one looked cold! We did studio shots and also walked across the street to Festival Park in Elgin.

Jake ’13 – Burlington Central High School

Published by Jan under senior,teen

I’ve definitely fallen behind in blogging this fall! But I’m able to catch my breath so look for a bunch of posts in the next couple of days!

First up is Jake – he is the 3rd in his family that I have done senior pictures for! LOVE repeat clients! As with most families, the siblings are VERY different in their interests. Max was a football player, Sara was a golfer and Jake is the actor/singer/dancer in the family. And believe me – he is amazing! He was in the Music Man as Tommy Djilas this past weekend and did a phenomenal job! He has also been in West Side Story, Little Shop of Horrors and Beauty & the Beast and also the competitive choir “Vocal Velocity”, Men of Note, & Chorale. Whew – a VERY talented young man!

Jake’s outdoor part of the session was held at Muirhead’s Farmhouse and the indoor part at the studio.

Best of luck Jake!
