Colt Lee

Western, Nebraska

Every time I get to see mister Colt it’s a good day. This little guy has grown so quick and it’s incredible to think just a few short months ago we celebrated his half birthday at his six month old milestone session!

Sweet Colt came wearing the most cute little knit button up onesie in a perfect charcoal color that went fantastic with the cream seamless paper backdrop we had set-up. One thing I love the most about these short milestone mini sessions is that it’s all about baby. We will toss in a few small props, maybe some fur or a wooden box but it’s mainly a session less focused on elaborate set-ups and more focused on the celebration of seeing our babies grow.

Cassidy Kowalski of Wilber, Nebraska

Sweet girl Cassidy. I’ve known her for years. I used to help “coach” her and it makes me so sad looking back five plus years ago when her tiny sweet voice said to me. “Kelsey, when I become a senior, you’re taking my pictures.” Ahh! It seemed so long ago!! But it’s bittersweet. I was honored and THRILLED to be trusted all these years later to take her senior pictures. Girlfriend, you have the brightest smile and personality that can light up any room and it’s a joy seeing you.

Cassidy is part of the Class of 2020 at Tri-County High School located near DeWitt, Nebraska and might be one of our most hilarious senior reps on our crew. She brings laughter to every single session I’ve ever had with her and I just adore her pretty curly hair that gives her personality that much more “oomph.” Cassidy did a summer session and surprisingly the Nebraska summer night wasn’t that hot considering during the day the temps were above ninty degrees outside.

Cassidy is active in 4-H, FFA, spanish club, and letter club in between all of her busy sports activities. She loves showing cows, working on the farm, and (my fav answer!) czech dancing with friends in what little free time she has. She is always so busy working as well, this girl is what I’d call a true Nebraska farm girl! Busy working with her cattle in between hanging out with friends and those activities. I don’t know how we had time to even squeeze in pictures ;)

For Cassidy’s pictures we mixed it up a little. Did some on the farm near Wilber, while others we did at a few other farm locations. We choose the local famous red barn (which I’m obsessed with!) for a few images as well as a fun bean field. I think it really pulls out the farm roots in her family! Then we found some grain bins and old rustic sheds to snap a few images before traveling to our favorite spot. The dirt road!! Her outfit choices went perfectly with the locations and it all pulled together really well I feel like.

I love getting to know my clients and one of the questions I always ask is what is one thing people would never know about you and her reply was that she loves running. That caught even me off guard but it’s a great activity to enjoy!

Thanks again Cassidy for trusting me to capture your senior portrait images. It is always a blast seeing you and sending you best of luck vibes for your senior year. Go make memories girlfriend!! XOXO

Waylon

Lincoln, Nebraska

When mama comes up with a theme and mentions it to me. I get over the moon excited and start the hunt for the best little props! Mindy came to me and mentioned she’d been looking into the theme Mr. OneDerful, and I think it might be one of the cutest ideas ever!!

Little Waylon was too busy playing to really care about us setting up such an elaborate set-up but when it came time for his cake. He knew what to do! And shout out to ____ cakes for the cutest little cake that even included mustaches and “little man” written on it in creams, golds and blacks to go with the overall theme. It was absolutely stunning. If you’re in the Lincoln, Nebraska area for sure look them up for your own cakes and desserts.

For his Mr. Onederful themed sesh we pulled out all the stops. Cream backdrop, black seamless paper for flooring, glitter gold and stripes paper chains, gold confetti, white and black striped curtains, gold, white and silver tissue paper puffs, fold, silver first birthday bunting banner, gold, white and black baloons, suspenders, black bow tie, and even the cutest little diaper cover covered in gold letters on the booty. Waylon celebrated it all for his birthday in style!!

As you can see, Waylon was busy with his first birthday photos playing and loved his balloons so much! We didn’t get many smiles in front of the camera but he was so busy behind the scenes chasing balloons and giggling that he made up for the lack of smiles with a big personality shining through his images.

I’ve gotten to know Mister Waylon, and his mommy and daddy throughout this past year and it’s been such a joy meeting this family and now considering them friends whom I welcome into my home. From their maternity sesh all the way through their first birthday session, it’s been so much fun learning and connecting with them. They’re such a great family and they truly love their little buddy so much! Huge thank you for making the drive from Lincoln, Nebraska down to us, I hope we made it worth your drive!!

Southeast Nebraska Family Photographer // Fairbanks Family // Group Generation Family Portrait Session // Wilber, Nebraska

NEBRASKA FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER | FAIRBANKS FAMILY | GROUP GENERATION FAMILY PORTRAIT SESSION | WILBER, NEBRASKA

images of fairbanks family, three generations, from fairbury nebraska, beatrice nebraska, lincoln nebraska and omaha nebraska. photos taken in southeast rural area near wilber nebraska on a gravel road at sunset with family walking towards camera. family is dressed in navy, coral, light blue, cream, white, stripes and blue jeans with sandals. surrounded by tall grass in early spring with short corn and soybeans starting to grow. grandparents are looking at camera while kids looking at parents. photo taken by dirt road photography and photographer is kelsey (homolka) nerud.

I haven’t met a family quite as spunky as fun as the Fairbanks crew in quite some time! With the crew living in Fairbury, Beatrice, Lincoln and Omaha I commend them for finding a time that worked for everyone to get together and schedule an evening for pictures. I only have one sister and between our schedules plus our parents it’s quite a feat to get us together for some quick shots ;)

The Fairbanks family session was the most beautiful evening, minimal bugs, a bit windy at first (I’m blaming the girls for that one) otherwise the sun was warm and the littles were in a great mood. It’s basically what us photographers call a dream session! ;)

The whole crew met me near Wilber and we went to one of my farm locations near the Turkey Creek river bottom ground that we farm and we hung out and captured some pretty epic pictures. We started with all the formal “pretty” pictures that mom’s and grandma’s want. I always recommend we get those out of the way in the chance we lose interest of the kiddos and smiles aren’t cool anymore. Those we absolutely flew through, everyone smiled on command and we even got a few giggles out of grandma.

Once all the formals were over, we got busy having fun. The kids were my personal golf ball hunters and we went out in search of some around the yard. We did find some in the mud and I promised once we got through more of the session we could continue to search for more because let’s be honest, that was truly the highlight of the entire session for the kids. Way more fun than giggles and tickles with your mommies.

The kiddos took a break from searching just long enough for us to squeeze in a few shots by the grain bins and then posed for some pictures by the barn again with the whole family. I love doing generation family sessions because it’s so neat to see grandparents interact with their grandkids as well as siblings and in-laws getting together to laugh and give each other lots of jokes. This family made me feel so welcomed in and I secretly thought their Christmas get-togethers were probably something I’ve been missing out on my entire life, I knew I’d totally fit in with them ;)

We then zipped over to a gravel road right at sunset because the lighting was stunning and sunsets with gravel or dirt roads are of course my favorites!! We ran up and down that road, danced and spinned in circles. We had races, we collected rocks in our pockets, it truly is my favorite part of my sessions is just interacting and getting those little engaged and having a good time. Then, at the end of the session, after promise after promise of “last picture” we ended with a surprise gift of the kids each earning their own golf ball since we couldn’t find the others we were hunting for earlier. Their little eyes lit up and they all took off proudly with their favorite souvenir of the entire week. I love the simplicity of life as a little!!

Huge thank you to the Fairbanks family. You guys are such amazing people and have the most beautiful family. Wishing you many many years of health and laughter. Don’t stop searching for those hidden golf balls ;)

Atalie

Wilber, Nebraska

Eek! Atalie it one and ready to celebrate!! Sweet baby girl, it feels like just yesterday we were anxiously trying find flower fields to go take your mama’s maternity pictures and now here you are, a year later happy and ready to clap and dance your way through your first birthday photo session!!

Sweet Atalie you are more precious and prayed for than you’ll ever know. When mommy and daddy asked me to surprise them with the gender of you I felt so happy and giddy to be trusted with the secret to surprise them with! Once we knew you were a girl I was over the moon because I knew mommy would make you the most stylish girl in town with all things floral, lace, pink and precious. You are filled with a spunky attitude and have always given us a run for our money when it comes to picture days. I think we could consider you the sour patch kiddo, sour and grumpy if it’s not your idea, but oh so sweet when you decide to have fun while playing with us. As you can tell, your first birthday session was filled with so much sweetness!!

We shot at a farm near Wilber, Nebraska on a beautiful spring afternoon in between rainy days. The grass was just getting tall and vivid green and you got the best nap in that day mommy said. You arrived with a inquisitive look but quickly warmed up once daddy pulled you out and gave you some snacks to pep you up. We then oodled over some of the cutest outfits mommy had picked (literally clothes baskets full to choose from!) and picked a few favorites to start with. Once we set you down, you knew exactly what to do and stole the show. You stood there posing, showing off how well you can smile and giggle.

Amazon Women's & Teens Summer Outfits

Amazon Summer Dresses, Shirts, and Accessories for Women & High School Seniors Styled Photo Session

best of Amazon summer women’s outfits for high school senior photo session with dresses, rompers, sandals, wedges, summer shorts, tank tops and other accessories.

It’s summer! Which also means fun rompers, dresses, tanks and shorts. Layer things on for those bonfire nights and wear the least amount during the 90 degree Nebraska heat. We love summer sessions at sunset when the sun dips ever so slowly into the horizon and we thought it’d be great to create a fun style inspo post for our high school senior girls or even just for those wanting some fun summer looks for concerts or county fairs!

This posts theme is boho yellows, oranges, and pinks mixed with neutral toned creams, tans and browns. We went with colors that will stand out with green summer grasses and rich sun tan skinned. We felt this would be great for everyone to mix in with what they already might have in their own closet which is what we love about helping style our clients. Show us a few things that you already have and we can send you ideas to build off that. You don’t need an entire new wardrobe to create a magical session, just a few additional pieces to dress it up and freshen up your look! Our biggest suggestion is to pick a couple pieces with patterns and then keep the rest simplistic and focus on the textures instead of the fabrics.

*Keep in mind, A LOT of the links shared do have other color options so make sure to click the links if you see something you love! ;) Amazon is accessible to everyone so this is a fantastic way to share links with lots of options in sizing and colors. Please of course read reviews on sizing to make sure you’re getting quality items!


Amazon Dresses & Rompers

Alright our top ten inspo for dresses and rompers includes a lot of boho styled goodies. We like to recommend flowy types of outfits that don’t cling too tightly to the body. This enables us to shoot some fun, more candid and careful style shots. Those mixed with the more posed images are what give you the beautiful look for a styled session. So choose a few favorites, pair them up with fun bralettes (for modesty), stack on a few accessories or bracelets and necklaces and slip on a kimono or cardi towards the end of the evening. You’ll have a full beautiful look that you can wear even after your photo session!

Amazon-Womens-Clothing-Nebraska-High-School-Senior-Photographer-Kelsey-Nerud-1.jpg

Amazon Women’s Tanks & Shirts

We realize that not everyone is a fan of rompers or dresses and we actually recommend you mix it up and do a few different options. Sometimes we like to do sitting poses and dresses aren’t lady like for those things so here are a few cute shirt options! We usually recommend to think less patterns and more textures. That gives us depth and draws attention to the details but doesn’t pull away focus of you during the session. By choosing some basic colors you can really dress them up with accessories to bring out your personality!

Amazon-Womens-Clothing-Nebraska-High-School-Senior-Photographer-Kelsey-Nerud-2.jpg

Amazon Women’s Shorts

Shorts were a little tough to find more styles but we assumed you’d have some simple jean shorts or other shorts in your wardrobe already. Of course if you have something similar absolutely use that instead of buying new! If you’re going with a print on your shorts, we’d recommend a very simple plain white tank or tee shirt to go with it! ;)

Amazon-Womens-Clothing-Nebraska-High-School-Senior-Photographer-Kelsey-Nerud-3.jpg

Amazon Accessories

Accessories are so fun! We tossed in a few kimono’s to layer with as well as a couple of bralettes that have cute lace details in case those straps show. The second row is a couple different styles of earrings that are fun to dress up your whole style a little bit and the last row is some layered necklace options. Of course use what you’ve got at home too! ;)


Amazon Women’s Heels & Wedges Sandals

Can you tell I like shoes?! Also, can you tell that the espadrille is really my style right now? Yup. Wedges are grand when walking on uneven ground at a session so heads up, bring the cute shoes for flat surfaces and bring flip flops for walking in the tall grass areas! We won’t see your feet for those shots so no need to get those cute heels dirty!

Meet Our Reps: Shelby Timmerman from Clatonia, Nebraska

Hey! My name is Shelby Timmerman and I’m a Dirt Road Photography Senior Model Rep! One of the reasons I became a Senior Rep is because I have always been uncomfortable when it came to taking pictures, so when I heard about the Rep team, I thought it would be a great opportunity to get out of my comfort zone! Kelsey is such a amazing photographer and she makes it so much fun! I’m involved in cheerleading and track at my high school in Wilber, Nebraska. I’m also in lots of other clubs at school like show choir, student council, TCBY and more! In the summer I show miniature horses with my family and in the winter I do competitive cheerleading! I plan to further my education, and hopefully cheer in college! I would love to become a Radiologist or something in the medical field. I definitely recommend Dirt Road Photography, Kelsey makes it so much fun and she’s super talented!

Bre Zoubek of Wilber, Nebraska

Bre Zoubek graduated high school from Wilber-Clatonia High School here in Wilber, Nebraska this past month. We’re excited she was one of our senior reps the previous year and wanted to share all about her beautiful fall session! It turned out gorgeous and we always love sharing some fun session throw backs from the fall that we didn’t have time to catch up on.

Bre was part of the Class of 2019 at WCHS here in Nebraska and is one of those girls that is filled with the best smile that can warm up any room. She is such a social butterfly and it’s so much fun watching her laugh and play with all the small kiddos whenever she’s out and about. The thing I love most about Bre is that she’s always willing to help those around her.

For Bre’s fall senior session we decided to do a little bit of everything. We started off at Doane University Campus in Crete, Nebraska where we did some more urban style shots. I used to shoot on the campus all the time, they have so many beautiful spots to stop and take pictures from flowers that bloom nearly all year to fun archaeological stops along the way. The bridges are beautiful but be careful near the pond, for some reason those swans are never a fan of me! ;) I think her style is always so perfect and her striped pants went perfectly with her yellow tank and denim jacket. Hands down my favorite outfit was her white dress with floral embroidery on it. It was just so whimsical and cute.

Thanks again Bre, it was a joy getting to know you this past year. Wishing you all the best in college and have a great summer girl!
