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 ;)

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

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!

It’s finally starting to feel like spring and quickly turning into summer!! Congratulations to all of the Class of 2019 seniors that we just finished up shooting, you were an amazing class to get to know and I am so happy to see such great young adults entering the scary world ahead of you. Keep me updated, I like watching what my DRP seniors are up to!

With the end of a school year means it’s time to start thinking about the next crew of seniors. To me, that’s the most exciting part! Getting inquiries asking about pricing and info on senior sessions as well as meeting and getting to know the teens that are part of Class of 2020! Everyone knows I love my seniors, but what I love the most is the connections and friendships I make with not only them but their parents and families. It’s always a joy meeting newbies and learning their stories. Those stories have been kicked off by launching our new Senior Rep Program and my girls are the best. Ever. I can’t wait to meet more high school seniors from all over Nebraska!

We hosted our spring senior rep sesh night this past weekend and the girls and me froze our booties off but I’m thinking the girls could all agree it was totally worth it judging by these beautiful pictures! They look totally warm and happy, but in reality, the wind was blowing about 20 mph and the temps were about 50ish. Nebraska weather can be fun like that, it was in the 90’s a few days earlier and we had our heaters on the following week. Spring truly is a magical time of blooming flowers, allergies and tornadoes, but Nebraska always has it’s way of working magic into the mess. We choose a location around Wilber and Swanton, Nebraska area because I had the perfect spot filled with everything spring including flowers, barns, tall grass, a cute little pond (with my ducks I’ve named Bert and Ernie!) as well as the perfect sunset. The girls of course talked to the cows and goats while out on the farm that evening so I guess you could say it was perfect for everyone!

Our first location was a tiny hike but once we got down there, the girls loved the soft subtle look of the purple wildflowers that were growing near the pond. We zipped down there and each girl had the opportunity to pose and have fun while being photographed. What I love is that I literally sent off a short message and gave the girls full style options. I offered a direction and said bring what you want and it always works out the girls match so well without even planning on it. I like to make sure they can feel comfortable and expressive in their own outfits but as a whole, they all look great together.

What I love the most about my rep team is that the girls, while not getting their picture taken and are waiting, have small talk but make sure to include each other. While shooting I could hear them saying words of encouragement to the person getting theirs taken and it warms my heart. It’s tough being a teen, there’s so much judgement and to take the time to find women who lift each other up is extremely important to me. These girls will eventually be our community leaders! But, I think my favorite part of the day was watching them laugh and get to know each other! My whole intention of having a rep team is to find ways to bridge schools and bring girls together to empower and encourage each other.

Our next location was up on the yard. We choose an open area with these cute little white wildflowers growing and the perfect faded white painted barn. My favorite was the light leaking into the images but of course, no one besides a photographer truly notices those details. A couple of the girls did a quick wardrobe change and there was a sneak attack scare shenanigan going on behind the scenes then we were ready for more laughter, jokes and of course, pictures! Those Nebraska sunsets and my senior teens I just can’t brag about enough. I love the midwest!

And our final stop for the senior rep team girls was at the pond. We hiked around the back side and froze as the sun was almost down but the girls toughed it out and smiled like it was the best day ever! Between the crisp spring sunset and the beautiful fresh grass growing, the girls looked stunning. I swear i have the best of the best from local high schools and I am forever grateful for these girls who are willing to laugh at my bad dad jokes.

Match Your Personality!

The best advice I can give is don’t buy a bunch of clothes to dress like someone you’re not. Make sure you wear clothes that you’re comfortable in and your outfit selections should match your personality and your own personal style. If you don’t normally wear heels

Dress For The Season

You wouldn’t show up to a summer baseball game with Ugg boots and a CC Beanie would you? Of course not! So don’t show up for your summer session wearing a fall sweater and booties! You want to be comfortable and not sweating or freezing so just plan accordingly. It’ll look silly with your snow boots if there’s sunflowers blooming with bright green grass in the background.

Don’t Always Follow The Trends

As much as the cute crop top shirts are trending, trust me, you’ll thank yourself in twenty years when you look back and didn’t follow that trend. Choose outfits that are timeless and classic. Just remember, the things that are in style, don’t necessarily always photograph well and aren’t flattering on all body types. Find clothing items that you can move around and sit comfortably in.

Avoid Neon Colors (At All Costs!)

I honestly don’t think people realize how horribly these photography. Neons cast colors, not flattering colors, onto your skin. As a photographer, we try our best to keep the colors as natural as possible when we’re editing but sometimes we adjust things to highlight you or the background, with neons, that not only makes it difficult but next to impossible to change your skin tones if you’ve got bright pink gleaming up onto your face and neck. If you take one piece of advice, take away that you should avoid neon colors in your clothing choices!

Bring Options & Accessories

This may seem obvious, but don’t forget to pack extras! I highly recommend doing a consultation before your session where you send us your outfit choices and we can tell you if there’s small tweaks or changes to amp up the looks but if that’s not possible, just bring a few extra options and we can choose the day of your session. We like to see what you all have in mind so we can choose locations based upon outfits ahead of time and it’s helps tremendously to keep the day of your session running smoothly.

New Outfits

It’s always fun to go out and get new clothes but be mindful of your budget. Remember that if you pair your basics with just a couple new accessories you can really dress up what you might already have! Bring something you’re comfy in and then of course if you feel obligated to, go get yourself a new fancy outfit. That way you can feel fabulous and ready to rock your senior sesh!

Solid Colors

Solids are always in style. Just remember a simple white tee and jeans are super classic and timeless. Dress up the look with a kimono, necklace, fun shoes and BAM! We can work with prints but try to keep the patterns less bold, we want you to stand out and not be hidden with busy clothes. ;)

Props

For sure think of fun props! Highly recommended to bring something, anything to your senior photo session. If you’re into sports, bring a basketball. If you’re into video games, bring a controller and teach me all about the newest games! If you’re into farm life, we’d love you to bring a tractor of your favorite horse out to see us. The options to elevate your senior session truly are worth the extra effort to make your session unique for you.

Rep Your High School Or College Team

Everyone needs at least one picture of them reppin their alma mater! Let’s snap one quick shot repping your high school or maybe even the college you plan on attending. Hoodies or tee’s your closet is filled with I’m sure so grab one! You’ll love to look back at it someday!

Don’t Have large Logos

We recommend not to wear clothing with name brand tags or logos and nothing with large pictures. You’ll want these images to be classic and stand the test of time. These images with their personality outfit will get you the most sincere smiles and they will probably be the ones they brag about, the ones that make their cover photo on Facebook or Instagram.

I hope some of those tips help! If you have questions or want more information about booking please reach out to us. We’re always open to answer questions and help make the process easier on you guys, we cannot wait to make your senior session amazing for you!

Elizabeth Kubicek of Wilber, Nebraska

Lizzie Kubicek is a high school senior at Wilber-Clatonia High School here in Wilber, Nebraska who is the sweetest most kind girl I’ve gotten to know through the years. She is such a determined and hard worker and I am so proud of her for overcoming everything that is thrown her way. She is always smiling, for sure is the type of person that walks into a room and can brighten everyone’s day and the one thing I love the most about Lizzie, is that she’s always willing to volunteer and lend a hand if someone needs something.

Lizzie is active in FBLA, is in National Honor Society, Student Council, Legion Auxiliary, VFW Auxiliary, is an elementary teacher’s aide, and is active in volleyball as well as so many other things.

Lizzie was one of my Class of 2019 senior reps and did an awesome job helping me out when I needed something. She for sure brought laughter to our sessions and I absolutely adore her sense of style. She planned out all her own outfits and clearly I wish I could keep her around just to help style myself and my future seniors!

At Lizzie’s session we choose one of our farms located near Dorchester, Nebraska and went with a super earthy vibe. Not over the top “farm” feel but more nature and just boho vibes. She wore some amazing outfits like the jean skirt with the perfect yellow floral shirt that coordinated perfectly with the wild flowers we found in late summer. The sun was setting so perfectly that evening and I swear it’s what us photographers dream of! ;)

She also wore a beautiful white flowy long sleeved shirt that had dainty lace details in it. Paired it up with some cute Steve Madden wedge sandals and distressed denim jeans it was amazing for the white flowers we found and ideal with tall grass. I’m totally serious when I say she did amazing with the outfits.

I always suggest to my seniors to grab a few tops to swap out during your session for a quick change and that’s exactly what Lizzie did. She also brought the most pretty soft green tank again, with great lace details, that flowed and looked gorgeous when we put her with that rustic car.

For senior sessions I love clothes that all flow together and give off the same vibes. I like that Lizzie went with flowing and neutrals. When we mix all the final images together in an album, they look stunning together! If you have too many different styles mixed in, sometimes it can get overwhelming and the overall feel of the session doesn’t flow as nicely. Lizzie did perfect combining all the outfits to function together.

I asked Lizzie what she thought of her experience and here are her words:

“Working with Kelsey was absolutely amazing!! She had so many great ideas and gorgeous locations! I was very comfortable and always laughing and LOVED how the pictures turned out! There was never a dull moment and Kelsey is such a genuine and hilarious person. :)”

So there you have it, even Lizzie LOVED spending time with me, almost as much fun as I had with her ;)

Thank you Lizzie for trusting me with your precious senior memories. You session for sure went down as a favorite and I am so proud of who you’ve became. I’ve known you forever, and watching you come to events with your mom as a pre-teen to seeing you bloom into a beautiful young lady, I have no doubt you’ll go on to become successful in any career path you choose. Lizzie is going to the University of Nebraska in Lincoln and will be studying elementary education. I know she’ll be fantastic being a future teacher! ;) Keep doing you girlfriend, you’re a true leader!

A few weeks ago in between the breaks of snow we kicked off the Class of 2020 Senior Rep Team party at Brew House in Crete, Nebraska. I met some pretty amazing girls from several local high schools in the southeast Nebraska area and invited them to join our rep team. We enjoyed some coffee, chit chatted about what perks are all included in the model program and then ended with a short and sweet photo shoot for the girls. We missed a few faces at the initial meeting but that’s ok, because the girls all got to meet later when we did a Snow Session for them.

At the meeting the girls talked about what activities they’re all involved in and we chatted about what they wanted to do through out this next year while repping the DRP team. From girls nights with pizza and popcorn to themed photoshoots with water or glitter, I have no doubt this next year will be filled with beautiful photos as well as inspiring girls that will be fantastic leaders in their local communities.

Our reps are from several schools located around the southeast Nebraska area. Janae is representing Milford High School, Cassidy represents Tri-County High School, Morgan represents Norris High School, for our Wilber-Clatonia High School reps we have Shelby, Lily, and Jackie (we love WCHS!) and rounding us out is Caitlin who goes to Friend High School.

I love that each girl took the time to style themselves based on a few simple insights that I suggested. I basically told them, jeans and pick a cream/white top. Dress it up or down however you’d like. Style yourself and make your personality shine. They literally did just that! From cute little brown booties to tennis shoes and converse, I loved see them all show up repping themselves.

I think my favorite part of this meet and greet was introducing the new girls to each other. Ironically, most of the girls knew of each other or found they all had a similar connection. Some knew each other from Trap Shooting while others competed in One Act Play or other sports activities. It’s my goal, to really bridge the gap and bring girls together to empower and encourage each other.

Keep an eye out for these girls through this next year, they’re going to move mountains! Check out how amazing they look in the photos!

These girls are amazing and I cannot explain how excited I am so watch their senior year unfold this next school year. My goal is to get into at least ONE picture with my girls every time we meet up. I want to build these friendships up and truly enjoy their company! XOXO

Colt Lee

Western, Nebraska

I absolutely LOVE getting to see babies and toddlers once in awhile during the cold months when we’re all cooped up inside impatiently awaiting the spring weather. Every January I host milestone mini sessions that are simplistic and focused on babies. The set-up is super basic and we invite clients to “shop” our wardrobe or baby outfits or bring their own. We even wrote up a post about The Best Of Amazon for Milestone Outfits to give clients inspiration!

One of my favorite little nuggets that stopped in was Mister Colt. I personally couldn’t wait to see him because my cousin’s (hey there Dustin & Amelia!) couldn’t make it to Christmas because Colt wasn’t feeling the best so it had been quite awhile since I’d seen him. Oh. My. Goodness. He has gotten so big and his laid back personality truly shined through! He was just all smiles and ready to talk to us from the minute he walked in the door.

At milestone sessions I try to go as simple as possible. The less time we spend setting up and taking down backdrops, the more time we get to spend playing with babies!! With these mini’s it was a basic, cream backdrop of seamless paper and we tossed in a few tiny props like the fur rug and box to help him sit up.

Colt did great and although he wasn’t quite sitting unassisted I’m willing to bet now he is! that’s why we’ve got plenty of buckets and basket’s to sit babies in. They always love getting to sit up and look around at us while we’re shooting.

Thank you Colt (and mommy and daddy) for visiting me. I cannot wait to watch you grow and see your personality change. You are such a handsome little dude and I have no doubt you’ll grow into loving the outdoors just like your daddy!!
