Laurich Family – Elgin Area Photographer

Published by Jan under family

Up next on the blog is the Laurich Family from Elgin.  I did their oldest son’s senior pictures a couple of years ago and will be doing Joe’s senior pictures this spring.  But we got the family session – including their adorable dog Rocky – this fall at Burnidge Forest preserve.  And since they have their Christmas card mailed out, I get to share that also!  Enjoy!

And a couple of storyboard collages:

Kylie ’13 – South Elgin High School

Published by Jan under senior,teen

Kylie’s session was held at Lords Park in Elgin.  I LOVE her outfits and accessories!!!  She has got a gorgeous smile but man can she rock the serious look – don’t you agree?  Here is a glimpse into Kylie’s world…

3 things people wouold be surprised to learn about you

- I am actually shy

- I would much rather hang out with guys than girls

- I hate people that constantly complain yet I want to be a psychologist for a living.

3 things you couldn’t live without:

I couldn’t live without my music, my friends, or my family

Fav movie or book

My favorite movie would have to be Shutter Island

I have NEVER…

I have never seen the Wizard of Oz

3 pet peeves:

- when people act like something they are not

- when people stop talking to you out of nowhere

- when people lie.

3 foods for a year, what would they be?

Pasta, Pizza, and chicken fingers.

If you won the lottery, what would you buy first?

I would buy my dad the new truck he has been wanting forever.

If you could ask one person (dead or alive) 1 question – who would you ask and what would you ask them?

I would ask Blake Shelton if I could do a duet with him.

If I had 24 hours to live, I would…

I would probably go run barefoot through the country just to be relaxed.

Fav class or teacher in HS. Why?

My favorite teacher in High School is by far my BEACON teacher Mr. Erickson. He is the most fun and understanding man I have every known and he treats us like his friends rather than just his students. He has been our teacher for three years and we all give him the utmost respect.

What are your after graduation plans?

I plan to go to Benedictine University to study psychology. I want to be a clinical psychologist and diagnose those with critical mental disorders.

And then a couple “would you rather” just because they are fun!

Would you rather

never use the internet again

X never watch TV again

Would you rather

- never play

X always lose

Would you rather

X get caught singing in the car

- get caught with your fly unzipped

Would you rather

X be able to read everyone’s mind

always know the future

And some of her favorite images!

I LOVE this one in both color and b&w!

Thanks for choosing Jan Nohling Photography for your senior portraits!

Adam ’13 – Burlington Central High School

Published by Jan under senior,studio,teen

Adam’s session was held at Lord’s Park in Elgin and then at my studio for the indoor images.  Adam is a fun-loving guy who is very talented and smart (he is at the top of his class).  He  was the lead in the high school musical “The Music Man” and is planning on continue acting and dancing in college.  No doubt he will be on Broadway some day!  He is very fashion minded and had some creative clothing for the shoot.  I LOVED all the variety!  Here is some trivia about Adam:
