It's that time of year again: Senior Spotlight Season and we are rolling right into our next MGP Senior!

Every year we recognize MGP Seniors and their accomplishments over their last year of high school while also enjoying looking at some of their images from their session(s).

 

_________________________________________________________
 

 

This week's spotlight is on Miss. Haylee from Montezuma High School in Montezuma, Iowa!

 

Haylee has also been around for a few years, too.  She joined the Underclassmen Project Team and moved on up to the Senior Model team for this year!  Setting all of this up and looking back, it's incredible to watch her grow.  I remember the first time I met her; she was SO nervous but she took the plunge and decided to join on to the program(s)!

 

Haylee has been kind, compassionate and understanding around me.  I will always have a soft spot in my heart for her and her family and I always knew there would be a good laugh or two when they were all around!  I could definitely see (and feel) her personality shine during her senior sessions, too, especially having her family near!  I have enjoyed getting to know her more these last few years than she will ever know!

 

Here are Haylee's responses to the spotlight questionnaire:

 

_________________________________________________________

 

 

What are your major accomplishments your senior year? What are you most proud of?:

 "Stepping out of my comfort zone and auditioning for the school musical. I also joined speech and drama, I did choral reading and radio broadcasting. Choral reading received a non-performing all state recognition."

 

I know the year isn't quite over just yet; do you have any big plans to finish out the year? Is there something you are looking forward to before graduation?:

"I am looking forward to the Coe College Honor Band in April!"
 

 

Were you involved in any sports or extra curricular activities? If yes, please list them:

 "I played softball my freshman and sophomore years. I’ve been in band all through high school. Also Musical, Speech and Drama."
 

 

What's your plan for this summer?:

"I plan on working and saving up money, and also making time for myself and my family and friends."

 

What does the future have in store for you? Have you already picked your school? If so, what major? (Or explain whatever future plans you have):

"I’m going to be attending William Penn University and I am doing the online program majoring in Elementary Education."

 

Do you have any advice for your underclassmen?:

"It goes by faster than you think, be confident and try new things!"

 

What are your absolute favorite images/sets from your senior session?:

"All of them 😍 especially the Hunter (the horse) and I."

 

Is there anything else you would like shared?:

"I am so glad I applied for the Underclassman project. It was the absolute best decision, really got me out of my comfort zone!! Thank you Alley!!"

Let's look over the last few years!

MGP Album StampMGP Album Stamp

 

It's that time of year again: Senior Spotlight Season and we are rolling right into our next MGP Senior!

Every year we recognize MGP Seniors and their accomplishments over their last year of high school while also enjoying looking at some of their images from their session(s).

 

Our next center of attention is Miss. Jordan from Iowa Valley High School in Marengo, Iowa.

 

Jordan has been around for a few years now; starting on the Underclassmen Project Team and then bumping up to the Senior Model Team.  So far, we've had 7 shoots together (both big and small) and still have one more to finish out the year!  I love Jordan's go-with-the-flow and laid-back personality.  While she may be pretty chill, she always shows up knowing what she wants and how to get it!  I think my favorite shoot with her was her senior session but I also REALLY loved the energy she just brought to our last styled shoot (hopefully I can sneak a few of those in here at the end)!

 

Enough of my chatting though, let's see what Jordan has going on as she finishes up the last few weeks of high school!

 

What are your major accomplishments your senior year? What are you most proud of?: "I believe I have had many things to be proud of throughout my senior year. Some of those things include; making hoco court, earning my Microsoft certification, having the highest score in the state of Iowa on my Microsoft Word certification test, and earning my Iowa Degree for FFA!"

 

I know the year isn't quite over just yet; do you have any big plans to finish out the year? Is there something you are looking forward to before graduation?: "I would say that I'm looking forward to senior skip day and pulling our senior prank but since we already did those I'd have to say that I'm looking forward to attending my final State FFA Convention."
 

 

Were you involved in any sports or extra curricular activities? If yes, please list them: "Oh yes I was involved in a bunch of them! Volleyball, Basketball, Golf, Softball, FFA, Speech, Year Book and Student Council"
 

 

What's your plan for this summer?:  "This summer I plan on having a bunch of fun with my friends before we all go our separate ways!"

 

What does the future have in store for you? Have you already picked your school? If so, what major? (Or explain whatever future plans you have):  "In the fall I will be attending Iowa State to major in Animal Science!"

 

Do you have any advice for your underclassmen?: "My advice to underclassmen is to always have fun no matter what you're doing or where you're at! With the right mindset you can make the best out of any situation!"

 

What are your absolute favorite images/sets from your senior session?:  "My favorite images from my senior session are the ones where I'm wearing the navy blue dress. All of those pictures are amazing."

 

Is there anything else you would like shared?: "Mother nature can be crazy so make sure you have a  back up date (or 3) in mind when choosing your senior session date!" 

^^ She's not wrong there!  We were definitely on the struggle bus when it came time to actually have her session and coordinating around the weather!

 

Shall we look at the last few years, then?

 

Her very first shoot, the Underclassmen Sign Up shoot:

That year we did a fun roof-top session that she was a part of, too!

We definitely had a great (ang BIG) group that year!

Then we were supposed to have her session.  And it got rescheduled.  And then it got rescheduled again..

But it FINALLY happened!  And it was great!  Never mind the flat tire I got while shooting..

MGP Album StampMGP Album Stamp

 

It's that time of year again: Senior Spotlight Season and it's time to kick the year off!

Every year we recognize MGP Seniors and their accomplishments over their last year of high school!

 

Our first up is the very beautiful and talented Miss. Amelia from North Mahaska High School in New Sharon, Iowa!

Amelia has been a part of MGP's Senior Model program and I have enjoyed having her fun and take-charge spirit on the team!  This girl definitely knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go after it!  We had a few different shoots together and each of them were just as fun as the others.  I am super excited for you to look through the last year with her!

 

But first, let's learn a little about Amelia!

 

What are your major accomplishments your senior year? What are you most proud of: "I’m very proud of all the relationships I’ve made with underclassmen at my school and that I’ve been able to help grow the next group of leaders at NM!"  

 

Were you involved in any sports or extra curricular activities? If yes, please list them: "Basketball, football athletic training, FFA (chapter officer), all-school musical, choir and the school newspaper."

 

What's your plan for this summer?:  "I’m going to work an internship to better develop my career skills before college starts."

 

What does the future have in store for you? Have you already picked your school? If so, what major? (Or explain whatever future plans you have):  "I’m going to attend Iowa State to major in Agricultural Education and I plan to be a high school Ag Ed teacher after college."

 

Do you have any advice for your underclassmen?:  "Just treasure your time during high school. You don’t have to fill all of it with activities to be successful. Remember to take time for yourself too! :)"

 

What are your absolute favorite images/sets from your senior session?:  "The ones where I’m drinking coffee are definitely some of my favorite! Also any of the green top and jeans outfit pictures!"

 


Let's look back at all of the sessions she's been involved in!

Senior Spotlight: Miss Abby; Oskaloosa Iowa Photography

MGP Album StampMGP Album Stamp

 

It's that time of year again: Senior Spotlight Season!

Every year we recognize MGP Seniors and their accomplishments over their last year of high school!

 

Next up is another new face around here, Miss. Abby from Oskaloosa High School  in Osakloosa, Iowa!

Abby also elected to have two separate sessions, one that focused on her love for flying in the summer and the second was more of a relaxed fall session.  

 

Let me tell you.. as soon as I booked Abby I was PUMPED.  I don't even care if it's not cool to say pumped anymore.  I was!  Her mom stressed how important flying was to her and that we would definitely be focusing on that for her session.  Also let me tell you.. I had NO idea how darn windy it is at the Oskaloosa Airport!  We fought that wind pretty hard, had to move a little here and there but in the end we came up with some amazing shots!  

Now, I don't know about all of you that know this girl well, but Abby was probably the most "know what she wants but go-with-the-flow" student I've ever worked with.  You'll have to let me know if that description is true!  I loved the ideas she had for her different locations and that she was also willing to go along with my different ideas.  I also was a fan how we did a good part of both of her sessions around her family land and properties!  You really can't beat the personal touch that will last forever in her portraits!

I really did have a lot of fun following Abby and her mom around at both of her sessions.  It was truly great to get to know her throughout our time together and to admire her determination at such a young age!  It really is inspiring!  From her love and dedication to 4H, her sweet corn field to her love of being in the air; I am blown away by her eagerness to chase after what she wants.

 

Anyways, I could go on and on about this girl, but that's not why you all are here!  Before we see her portraits from her sessions, let's learn a little more about Abby from her questionnaire!

 

 

What are your major accomplishments your senior year? What are you most proud of: "High game and high series in bowling. It will also be getting my pilots license, but that hasn’t happened yet."  -- PS I'll be expecting an update on that!

 

I know the year isn't quite over just yet; do you have any big plans to finish out the year? Is there something you are looking forward to before graduation?: "Getting my private pilots license and building flight time before I go to college."

 

Were you involved in any sports or extra curricular activities? If yes, please list them: "Bowling, Tennis, concert band, jazz band, and marching band."

 

What's your plan for this summer?:  "Fly, fish, and sell sweet corn."

 

What does the future have in store for you? Have you already picked your school? If so, what major? (Or explain whatever future plans you have):  "I plan to attend the University of Dubuque to study Aviation Operations and Minor in Aviation Management. After college, I plan to become a corporate pilot."

 

Do you have any advice for your underclassmen?:  "Do what you want and don’t worry about other people."

 

What are your absolute favorite images/sets from your senior session?:  "The airplane ones, any of the black/white ones, the fishing ones."

 


Let's look back at her sessions!

Thank you so very much, Abby (and Kara) for letting us be a part of Abby's senior year!  Wishing you the very best as you fly off (see what I did there?!) to school next year!  I know you will be nothing short of amazing!

Senior Spotlight: Miss Alivia; Belle Plaine Iowa Photography

MGP Album StampMGP Album Stamp

 

It's that time of year again: Senior Spotlight Season!

Every year we recognize MGP Seniors and their accomplishments over their last year of high school!

 

Next up is another new face around here, Miss. Alivia from Belle Plaine High School in Belle Plaine, Iowa!

 

Alivia decided she wanted to have two separate sessions; one in the summer and one in the fall!  She wanted to go somewhere a little different than "around home" for her session so we took her to the sprawling town of What Cheer.  Little did I know that the Iowa DOT decided that that day they were going to do some work along the highway in town.  So Alivia got to learn how to pose with me over wonderful noises jackhammering and big trucks.  Lucky girl!

Her second session ended up being a little more quiet and peaceful (and super fun - just wait until you see that adorable little car)!  We were also able to show off who Alivia really is with her spots around her hometown and with her sports sets!

Overall, getting to know Alivia and her family over the last year has been nothing short of a blessing and it has been a blast!  

 

Before we take a look at the images from her session, let's learn a little bit about Alivia and her last year in high school!

 

What are your major accomplishments your senior year? What are you most proud of: "I am most proud of being on the high honor roll all throughout high school. I am also most proud of being the football and basketball cheerleading captain."

I know the year isn't quite over just yet; do you have any big plans to finish out the year? Is there something you are looking forward to before graduation?:  "I am most looking forward to finding a roommate for college next year. I am also looking forward to my senior prom!!"

Were you involved in any sports or extra curricular activities? If yes, please list them:  "I have been in softball and basketball cheerleading all 4 years of high school. I was captain of the basketball cheer team my junior and senior year. I have also been involved in football cheerleading since my sophomore year, I was captain my senior year."

What's your plan for this summer?:  "This summer I plan to finish off my senior year by playing softball and working at the Ice House in Belle Plaine."

What does the future have in store for you? Have you already picked your school? If so, what major? (Or explain whatever future plans you have):  "In the fall I will be attending the University of Northern Iowa. I plan to major in Pre-Physical Therpay."

Do you have any advice for your underclassmen?:  "Enjoy high school while you can, time really does fly. You don’t have to be involved in everything your school offers but being involved is important. Don’t bite off more then you can chew!"

What are your absolute favorite images/sets from your senior session?:  "Oh boy it’s hard to choose just one. I absolutely love all of the ones in the car and the ones after that at the grass park area with the same outfit. I am also in love with a lot of my softball pictures!"

 

Now, let's look back at some of our favorite portraits from her session!
 

First up: Her summer session!
