Ian ’13 – Burlington Central High School

Published by Jan under senior,studio,teen

Ian’s session was held at Muirhead’s Farm in rural Plato Center and studio session in Burlington.  The weather couldn’t decide if it was going to rain or not – it was a light rain which was fine, but then started raining harder so we decided we would go to the studio but by the time we got to the cars to leave it had stopped so then we just continued on with the outdoor part and boy am I glad we did.  We got a wide variety for Ian’s gallery of both outdoor and indoor shots.  Thanks Ian for being so flexible!

Here are some favorites from his session:

and then a fun “Surreal”

Thanks for choosing Jan Nohling Photography for your senior portraits Ian!

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!
