I wish I could put into words how much I absolutely love and adore this family. This was an extra special session for me because I got to hang out with this sweet and sassy little nugget, miss Timber Rose, my niece! I am so grateful for this family, they’ve been there through everything with me and we’ve created some pretty fun memories out on my parents farm near Wilber, Nebraska. From cruising the country side on four wheelers to having family night and playing croquet until the sun sets over the barn, we’ve made lots of memories!! For those, I’m forever grateful that I’m surrounded with those who love me and trust me with taking their photos.

Chrissy and Aaron got married this past year and I was so over the moon about it. Aaron farms near Wilber and my sister works in town for the county. Timber entered our lives January 1st and has been the highlight of our family ever since. She’s full of smiles, sass and attitude but she’s also a sweetheart that can light up any room with just a simple quick grin.

I love that they wore matching cute plaid scarves with orange colors for their session. The pop of color combined with their fun black shirts was amazing with the background of brown trees and green grass. We choose a farm that has beautiful sun shining through the trees and grass that was shorter so Timber could sit in it. The fall weather was great that evening so that of course added to the family session we had planned. Timber was happy once she got warmed up to the location and even hung out and giggled at us making faces at her while she sat with her little fall pumpkins. I love that her favorite thing is when mommy or daddy whisper silly words to her. I’m so grateful to be a photographer who gets to use my skills and talent to take pictures for my own family. This hands down is my favorite thing and getting to combine my passion along with my family, well, that’s the perfect combo!! Thank you again so much Niederklein crew for trust me, it means the world and I’m so proud of you three!

Fall Family Mini Session // Wilber, Nebraska // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

What a whirlwind of a day, but it was intentionally perfect. We invited twelve family’s out to the farm near Wilber, Nebraska for our annual fall family mini sessions and it everything went smooth with less than three tiny humans in tears. We quickly turned those tears into smiles with candy surprises at the end so no worries about casualties. ;) I was so worried we wouldn’t have nice weather since the week before we had snow falling but the day was amazing with sunshine, a slight breeze and 60 degree temps. With just the right amount of rich fall colored leaves but still touches of green in the grass.

The thing I love most about my fall family mini’s is getting to see and catch up with a lot of clients once a year. Every single year it’s crazy how much their kiddos have grown but I love establishing a friendship and building trust with the littles. This year, we had families from Milford, Crete, Hallam, Wilber, Clatonia, and even Beatrice area! It’s incredible to see how much of a distance everyone is willing to come to meet me!

It’s such an honor that parents invite me back into their lives and getting family pictures is something I always encourage everyone to do. Sometimes life gets cut short, and you struggle with the thought of not having a family picture to reminiscence over, let’s take those thoughts away and schedule some family memories of your own!!

Huge thank you again to all the families that visited us. You make me love small town Nebraska life so much more when I see all the amazing people involved in our communities! I cannot wait to watch all these kids become the future leaders and I know I’ve met so many amazing parents that are fantastic role models for them. ;)

High School Senior Session - Nebraska Photographer

Home girl Bre Zoubek of Wilber, Nebraska is killing it when it came to repping the Class of 2019! We had so much fun celebrating her senior year of high school at Wilber-Clatonia High School through her senior pictures. From the beautiful sunsets to the buggy stream pictures, we took so many gorgeous images and I cannot wait to share more! Also, HUGE thank you for participating in our Senior Model Rep Team, you literally are amazing girlfriend! We’ve got so many different images to share that we’ll be slowly releasing more images throughout the rest of the year.


High School Senior Session // Chase Wittenhagen // Pius X High School // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

I was over the moon excited when I got a call from the Wittenhagen family letting me know that Chase wanted to book his senior session with me. But once the excitement wore off, I realized it was such a bittersweet feeling for me to see the final kiddo graduating high school. I’ve know the Wittenhagen crew for going on almost five years now and they’ve been there the first few years I was growing and learning as a business. I remember when Chase’s brother Layne was a senior and their first visit out to the farm we chatted about his future plans. Then, a short year later, his sister, Haeley came out. We also chatted about future plans, and even included siblings and grandma in some photos as well that year. Then, a year passed, I kept track of the family through social media, and I missed seeing them. Hearing updates and thrills on new kiddos accomplishments. It’s been such a fun time working with them.

I think what I love most about photographing high school seniors is getting to talk with them. Learn about their future plans and goals. Talk about all of their accomplishments throughout school and what they’re doing to make the most of time during their senior year. Laugh about the funny memories with friends or even jokes they’ve played. I love getting to compare each school system and what rules they have. Sometimes I find myself amazed with certain things they can get away with now (cough, phones in class).

Chase is attending Pius X High School located in Lincoln, Nebraska and is part of the Class of 2019. I love that he isn’t afraid to be spontaneous and go trekking to go find new locations that are unique for his session out on the farm. We tried our best to go to different spots than his siblings so everything would be new. While talking to Chase, I learned he plans on going on after school to join the Navy. And I am so proud of him for that.

It has been an absolute pleasure getting to know Chase and his family and I wish him nothing but the best in life after high school. Thank you so much for choosing me to be your senior photographer! I hope your family enjoys the pictures as much as I do! Thanks again!

Oh. My. Gosh. Destiny is stunning and absolutely gorgeous! I went straight home and started sorting images from her senior session that we held on the farm near Dorchester, Nebraska and couldn’t stop!! Destiny goes to Fairbury High School and I’m so grateful she decided to venture out and come visit to mix it up and get a different look than everyone else from her school. She’s supppper cute, mega kind and looked absolutely amazing! Literally, so excited to share more, but for now, the sneak will tide you guys over ;)

Conner has made me laugh and is such a fantastic kid who goes to Wilber-Clatonia High School and is active in so many activities. From Cross Country to Swing Choir, he’s constantly busy and I totally admire how much effort he puts into the community. At his senior session we got busy having fun on the farm, practically going “mudding” getting to a location for some fishing pictures and even pulling his four wheeler out! There’s nothing more exciting than hanging out with kiddos and learning what their future plans are. I have no doubt Conner will do magical things in the future, he is such a great leader!

High School Senior Session // Tara Schroeder // Fairbury High School // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

When Tara Schroeder contacted me planning out her senior session I knew we would create something magical. Little did I know, she’d invite me down to Fairbury, Nebaska and we’d have so much fun and she’d show me so many unique and beautiful locations! From totally urban buildings, to pretty brick alleys and even the Fairbury High School football stadium. All of it was so pretty and a fantastic change up for me so I wasn’t shooting my same old farm looks.

Tara is a senior at Fairbury High School and is active in softball and cheerleading. When I asked her what she does for fun she said her and her friends enjoy hanging out down at the river, going shopping and spending time around bonfires. I love that she enjoys the country life and also likes horses so that’s always an easy way for me to connect with my seniors. I found it hilarious when I asked what is one thing that people might not know about you and she said she doesn’t like cats. Girlfriend, so much me too (allergies can do that to ya)! Thanks again for trusting me to capture your most precious high school memories of your senior year. I cannot wait to meet the rest of your family here shortly for your family session!

Fall Outfit Inspiration

It’s finally fall! And with fall comes the exciting family picture planning but the dreaded searching for the perfect outfit. Look no further and let us take the stress away from it! We’ve created the perfect mix and match stylized board for you to check out with outfits for your whole family.

We tried to create outfits that can easily be dressed up with accessories or dressed down for a more relaxed, laid back feel. We also included plenty of outfits that can be re-worn for daily use do you don’t feel guilty purchasing all new outfits for your session. ;)

Think Patterns.

When picking out your outfits consider choosing one or two patterns and try to keep everything else fairly basic. Think less patterns more textures. What that means is choose maybe one floral shirt or even maybe a little dress for your baby and then pick some textures to mix in. Dad in half zip pullover sweater, brother in a waffle knit shirt with potentially a puffy vest. Mom could toss on a flowy top and a cardigan. Toss in some accessories, (check out Madison + Barrett Jewelry, they’re always my go to for accessories!) and you have yourself outfits that are picture perfect!!!

What I typically do (and let’s be honest, it’s because I always over-shop) is I like to purchase 2-3 options for each person. I then bring it all home and lay it out. I pick my favorite outfit for each person and lay them all together to see what they look like. If something looks off, I go to the second option that I purchased for them. Sometimes that means swapping out dad’s shirt so we don’t have two button up shirts or maybe switching the babies vest so we aren’t all wearing vests. Then I pull accessories and shoes. Boys are fairly easy but us girls always have too many options. ;) Think cute wedges for yourself, maybe your little girl have some taller boots and the babies always look cute in moccasins. Once you’ve got what you think finalized, put them aside for a few days and then pull it out to look again. You’ll have a fresh eye for them and really it’ll help you decide for sure that you love it.

So that’s it. Now you can stop stressing about outfits! Focus instead of then fun you’ll have during your session. And as always, send us your outfit choices! The more we plan ahead, the less you’ll have to prepare the day of. We love taking a look at outfits, it truly helps us feel inspired to scout locations that’ll flow with your theme and colors. Reach out if you want help with specific styling, we’re all about using what you already might have so you don’t need to purchase all new outfits either of course!

(*We tried our best to create only links of clothing that will stay in stock for awhile. While boutiques have super cute and stylish options, sometimes the stock doesnt stay for very long but we always recommend shopping local and supporting the small business’ around you!)

Little sneak peek inside Seth’s senior portrait session! His dad brought this classic Ford out and we couldn’t help but snap a few (ok a lot) of shots with it! Seth, you truly are a fantastic kiddo and it’s been great getting to know you. Can’t wait to dig into your session to work on editing more of these. Southeast Nebraska sure does have some amazing locations including this one outside of Clatonia, Nebraska where we took some his senior photos.

Senior Photo Session // Maddie Schnase // Pius X High School // Southeast Nebraska High School Senior Photographer

Farm. Horses. Sunsets. Trucks. And American Flags.

These are the things that all were included during Maddie's senior session. These are also some of my top fav things about getting to meet and style a senior session specifically tailored to each and every senior I get to meet.

Maddie came down from Lincoln Nebraska to visit me and brought lots of ideas and props as well. Her hobbies include anything country, and outdoors along with her favorite thing, everything equine. What I loved learning the most about her, she barrel races! I find it so neat when I learn what unique hobbies my seniors have, and I love keeping track of them after they graduate. I like seeing them succeed in college and check in often to see what they're up to. To me, it's not just about capturing your senior pictures, it's about making a connection and friendship that I get to continuously check in on and cheer my seniors (and their families) on from the sidelines for years to come!

Maddie brought her horse out to the farm where we had so much fun playing in the tall grass, avoiding bugs and just talking about all things high school. She told me how she loves to go to Plamor (something I once used to do over ten years ago back when I was in high school) and explained how she loves driving her truck up and down O Street with her American Flags on the back of it.

Thank you Maddie and Jenny for coming down to visit, I truly enjoyed getting to know you both and wish you all the best luck after high school!

Child Portrait Session // Cooper // York, Nebraska // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

Child Portrait Session // Cooper // York, Nebraska // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

The one thing I absolutely love to do is get to know clients. What I love the most about getting to meet Cooper and his mom, was that they were so. much. fun. 

They came down from York to visit the farm near Dorchester, Nebraska to play football and check out the corn fields. I am so grateful for my clients who refer their friends so we actually talked about how we both knew Jill and how wonderful she is. Mister Cooper told me all about school, how excited he was to be turning four and then told me all about tractors and green combines. Not going to lie, I have a love for all things farm and agriculture so when I see kiddos show enthusiasm for those things, I of course set my camera down to listen. Sometimes, it actually benefits kiddos if I stop a session and just play for a little bit, it reminds them I'm a "fun" person and I'm there to not just take pictures but also to show them around and let them just be kids and play.

My favorite part about doing child sessions is that we can make it whatever we want to fit your kiddos personalities and your budget. You have the option to purchase all digitals or just order a canvas to display. If you're interested in creating unique gifts to give to families, we've got plenty of products for that as well. My personal favorite option, I love encouraging people to order albums to include all the images from their session in a nice little package that they can then show to family and hand down for generations to come!

Thank you Cooper for stopping to talk to me all about combines, tractors, trucks and four wheelers. I might not love football as much as you, but I sure do enjoy seeing you giggle and "kick dust" out here on the farm!

Family Session // Zoubek's // Western, Nebraska // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

I never have enough good things to say about this crazy Zoubek crew! My favorite thing about them, they share my families last name! The Zoubek's I've known forever. I've watched the kiddos grow up and I absolutely LOVE watching them grow every year into these amazing, responsible, funny and kind hearted individuals. The kids are always out to make each other laugh (or just annoy each other) and do the most hilarious things! They invited me out to their farm near Western, Nebraska (the town not the side of the state for all those that are confused) and we literally just hung out. The kids ran wild, we went on a nature hike out to their pond, we captured some tickle fights. It was just a joyous evening capturing their family.

I am so grateful that I get the opportunity to be invited into families lives. To be trusted to capture personalities that quickly change as the teen years come into play. I love what I do, but more than that, I love the families I get to meet and get to know. I love keeping up with the kids and watch them change and grow.

I am so blessed to be able to create these magical memories to share with parents and capture these milestones!

Senior Session // Camryn Evans // Wilber-Clatonia High School // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

Something that always hits close to my heart is when I get senior girls who book a session that are into all things country. I myself was an FFA kiddo who loved farm life and could be girly if needed but felt so "at home" in my cowboy boots and a good pair of jeans.

High school seniors are always so nice to get out and go shoot a session with. Spencer was the most outgoing guy I've ever met! We laughed together, made jokes, took awkward pictures and all around just had a great evening with. He invited his mom and girlfriend to come along with and we all caught up about life and families.

Nebraska Photographer :: Kirsten Holle :: Beatrice, Nebraska :: Sneak Peek

There are so many beautiful things about Kirsten I cannot wait to share them! She goes to Beatrice High School and is into music, art and doing outdoor things like camping. It was so nice of her to come down to Dorchester, Nebraska to visit the farm for her senior session and get to know me. It was so funny when the cows paid so much attention to us and I'm so impressed with how well she handled the cold crisp fall evening.

Senior Session // Hannah Hennecke // Norris High School // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

I've never laughed this much at a session. What an amazing mother/daughter duo Kim and Hannah are! Sometimes when I meet parents/seniors they don't always see eye to eye but these two were so much fun and had such a fantastic connection.

Family Session // Bors Family // Dorchester, Nebraska // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

It's been so incredible getting to meet up with families I don't get to see often. The Bors family is one of them. When we were younger, I used to Czech dance with a couple of the kiddos, as we grew, I'd run into them on the streets at Czech Days and it was always a welcomed reunion of quickly catching up on each other's lives before we went to dance the night away with friends. Now, I get to watch grand kids and significant others join their family and it's such a joy to see everyone changing and happy in life. What an amazing family, they kept me laughing the entire time! I'm so glad they choose to do family pictures on their farm, their pond was perfect and all their kitties and puppies were so fun to play with. Thank you guys so much for inviting me out to the farm near Dorchester, Nebraska it's beautiful out there!! I know you'll soon have lots of bonfires with those littles and create so many fun memories with your family.

Senior Session // Madison Gregory // Fairbury High School // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

Meeting Maddy was so fun. She's been working so hard that she's graduating early from Fairbury High School. What a determined person, that's just so cool to see teens work so hard towards those types of things.

Madison is also a cheerleader and loves dancing, cheer and fitness. Finding a girl that is so like me was so great, but unlike her, I don't have that beautiful hair color that I've always secretly wished for! I love asking my seniors some questions and one that I asked her was what is one thing people wouldn't know about you and her response is that she's extremely motivated. I too, love staying motivated and once I put my mind to it, can accomplish anything. I have no doubt that Maddy will accomplish so many things in her future, she's an awesome person!

Nebraska Photographer :: The VanAsperen Family :: Kramer, Nebraska :: Sneak Peek

Take a chilly fall afternoon, add in some wind (cause that's how Nebraska rolls) and a cute little puppy and toss in the perfect family of four. The result? A beautiful session filled with laughter! The VanAsperen family was a joy to meet and hang out with on the farm in southeast Nebraska this past month. I'm playing catch up and trying to blog some of my favorite sessions so there will be more to come but here's a quick sneak of what the midwest is all about! I love small town life, especially when towns like Dorchester and Kramer have so many unique families.
