Katelyn & Amy

2015-01-10_0001.jpg

This was a super fun session I did before Christmas with Amy & Katelyn. They wanted to surprise their mom with a portrait for Christmas. So we did the session before Christmas in their beautifully decorated log cabin home and then Christmas morning they were able to surprise her with a gallery of proofs and then she was able to pick out beautiful images for her home. What a truly priceless gift these college-age girls were able to give their mom!

Jacob ’14 Burlington Central High School

Published by Jan under pet,senior

Jacob’s session was held at his home and at Central’s soccer field and baseball diamond. He is a 3 sport varsity athlete (also basketball which I photographed for senior night in the winter). It was fun incorporating all the sports into his senior session. They also adopted a new puppy the day before the session so OF COURSE we had to get pictures with Buddy! He is so cute!

Jacob’s younger brother Zack just graduated 8th grade and is heading to the high school in the fall so I included some images with Zack too!

Jacob is heading to Iowa State in the fall to major in business – Best of luck Jacob!
