Damian Jacobsen of Wilber, Nebraska

Oh my heck Damian what a great evening we had!!! It’s always a joy to shoot senior guys, they’re just funny and ready to roll through pictures as quickly as possible to please their mom’s. They aren’t worried about their hair, they’re more concerned with if they can do stunts or climb things. My senior boys are always up for adventures and typically are more than willing to try pushing the boundaries for me. Guy senior sessions are slowly becoming my favorite thing and it’s great to catch up and learn a few things about video games and football, so it’s actually a bonus when I get to learn stuff!

Damian is part of the Class of 2020 at Wilber-Clatonia High School located here in Wilber, Nebraska. I got to know his family last year when his brother Noah came to me for his senior pictures so for me, it was exciting to meet his brother and see how the two boys are so different yet look so much alike!

Damian wasn’t too picky with his images. He was actually extremely laid back! He brought just two outfit changes and that was it. We went to his grandparents farm near Clatonia to shoot some of the images and then took a little roadtrip to find a beautiful bridge for the rest of his session. I loved that we kept it short and simple and instead focused on capturing his personality instead of elaborate scenery or outfits.

Ellie Jean

Lincoln, Nebraska

Oh sweet little Ellie Jean you are an absolute joy to be around. Getting to meet your mommy and daddy I honestly felt so connected to them from the get-go at your maternity shoot. We talked about you and all the exciting plans we had for you and then when I finally got to meet you I just couldn’t stop adoring you! Your perfect little nose and cute little lips, you have all of the beautiful features every newborn photographer loves about brand new babies. You must have loved taking pictures because you were pretty proud and smiled often, especially when mommy and daddy held you for their images.

When someone mentions the Andelt crew I always just smile and think back to quite a few years ago when I met all the boys and remember how tiny they were and thinking to myself, “gee, Angie sure does her hands full with all those boys.” But then, as I watched them grow, it warmed my heart seeing how much love their family has and how much they adore and take care of their momma. These boys are all hard workers and it feels like such a feat to get them all together and smiling in one picture. I kid you not, they’re so nice to each other when the camera is up but those smiles quickly turn into jokes and jabs once it falls down. We stood there talking and giggling about whose in trouble the most, who is the most athletic and whose the smartest out of the crew but at the end of the day, I’d agree that they’re ALL good kids with hearts full of love for each other who’d be there and have each others backs no matter what.

The Andelts are from the Crete, Nebraska area and like I mentioned, I’ve known them for years. It’s fun meeting up but I rarely get to see all the boys together. I took Zane’s senior pictures a few years ago and this year I was lucky enough to get to know his brother Ames. Oh boy, they’re totally different kids but they’re both so quiet unless you get them on the subject of trap shooting!

For their session we decided to meet at a farm, because of course, they’re farm boys! I knew I’d have better luck and more natural smiles if we did pictures of them in their favorite environment so we just went with it. After the camera got put away we tried pulling apart tall grass (it’s at thing, and it’s tough, trust me!) and just chatted while we watched the sun set on a nice late fall evening in Nebraska. Honestly, it’s my favorite thing and one of the many reason’s I went into photography. Because dusk is my favorite time of day and watching the earth slowly fade into the night and all the animals settle for the evening is just magical.

Shelby Timmerman of Clatonia, Nebraska

I think one of my favorite things about senior photo sessions is getting to brag and share all of the beautiful images we create. And Shelby’s session is a prime example of how beautiful my seniors are and how much fun we have during a session. I don’t want this to be an awkward few hours of smiles, I want this to be an experience that you’ll remember as fun and memorable! Shelby, I think the time we spent together was filled with the perfect balance of laughter and gave us results of images you’ll forever cherish!

Shelby is part of the Class of 2020 at Wilber-Clatonia High School located in Wilber, Nebraska. She’s such a sweetheart and is also one of our Senior Reps! I love that she’s always smiling and filled with joy.

Shelby is active in cheerleading, show choir and track for school activities and she also shows horses for fun. She’s also on a competition cheer team (Cheer Xpress!). I’m telling you, she’s a busy girl!! I love asking me seniors what is one thing people wouldn’t know about you and she responded “I love my cats!”

For Shelby’s pictures we wanted to mix it up, do something fun and still include her favorite things. So we started out with a fun summer sesh that included her cute horse. Let me tell you, he was a handful but oh so much fun to get lots of head scratches too! I’ve worked with plenty of horses and it truly is an art so if you’re ever wanting to book a senior session, make sure the photographer is comfortable with livestock because knowledge is key for safety and creating beautiful images. A piece of advice I like to give if you’re considering adding livestock (horses, cattle, etc) into your session is let’s start off with them. That way the most stressful part of the session is done first and then if dad’s come they can load up the animals and get them back home while we soak up the rest of the fun. Also, running some energy off of them first always helps them give us more attention ;)

After we finished up all the horse play (hehe) we took off for another farm where we did more senior pictures and changed up outfits. It’s so much fun learning more about the teens and watching their personality come to life during their sessions. I like giving some posed guidance but then asking them to help get creative, it helps show what they want included in their sessions. Shelby is simply stunning and we captured the most beautiful images of her. I honestly get so blown away with the final images and pulling together some highlights for blog posts always make me so happy!

Tia Kreshel of Wilber, Nebraska

Short and sweet sneak peek of a beautiful senior portrait session we held in mid-summer to get in some shots before school started. I love getting to meet my seniors for a short mini to get to know them and it gets all of our jitters out before the real senior sesh. It’s like a mini test run for both of us to get to know each other!! We did the short senior portrait session near Wilber, Nebraska on a farm that has beautiful tall grass with some white wildflowers and then zipped over to the grain bin to sit and chat. Literally, the entire session was less than an hour and we got so many pretty images!

Special thanks again Tia for stopping out. The bugs weren’t our friends but this short mini resulted in some gorgeous images. Focusing less on outfit changes and more on poses/content really can work wonders on my workflow ;)

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

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!

Families also hold a near and dear piece of our heart as we love documenting the milestones of children and parents connecting throughout their childhood laughter and fuzzy snuggles in timeless portraits to keep and cherish through tangible artwork and printed products.
