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!

Hopefully you got to experience a little bit of Abby's personality in these images!

 

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!

Senior Spotlight: Mr Ian; East High School, Iowa

January 23, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

 

 

 

 

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!

 

First up is a new face around here, Mr. Ian from East High School in Waterloo, Iowa!

Ian was actually my very last senior I worked with before winter hit this busy season and boy did we end the year on a bang!  I typically do not work with many students from the Waterloo area, but if they're anything like this young fella (and his momma & aunt), bring them on!  This last fall's busy season hung on for the longest in my photography career because of the nice weather.  So shooting Ian's session late-November really was a breeze!

We started our day up in his neck of the woods (ok, city) and then ended back in the studio for some specialized lighting work.  He even got in the "rain" set when it was 30*.  What a CHAMP!  Ian was more than willing to try anything I had asked him to, which from what I understand, has been pretty common for him growing up in front of his mom's and aunt's camera!  And BONUS, he sang for us not once, but TWICE!  The guy just gave the whole day his everything!

It really is fun meeting clients on their home turf and letting them show us around.  There are so many hidden gems in the Waterloo area and thanks to their local insight, I have a few ideas going forward!

 

Every year I send a questionnaire to graduating seniors for them to fill out.  Before we get going too far into his images, let's get to know Ian just a little more:

 

What are your major accomplishments your senior year? What are you most proud of: "I was on homecoming court and finished three fall sports seasons."

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 will be running track in the spring, hoping to qualify for the state track meet and Drake Relays. I will also be playing baseball this summer."

Were you involved in any sports or extra curricular activities? If yes, please list them:  "I ran track and cross country, played football, baseball, and travel volleyball."

What's your plan for this summer?:  "Play baseball and do as many trips and fun things with friends as possible."

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 planning on going to an undecided college to run track and get my undergrad in kinesiology before I eventually become a chiropractor."

Do you have any advice for your underclassmen?:  "Have as much fun during high school as you can. Hang with friends, go to school events and dances, and try some different sports or clubs!"

What are your absolute favorite images/sets from your senior session?:  "I really, really loved how the photos under the rain with the blue and purple lighting turned out! I also thought the pictures on the track turned out really cool too!"

 

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

Senior Spotlight: Miss Dylan; Montezuma Iowa Photography

March 15, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

 

 

 

 

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!

 

First up is none other than Miss. Dylan from Montezuma High School!

 

I first met Dylan when she tagged along with Katie (an MGP Senior Model) for a BFF shoot!  I am sure our confusion on the correct date for this shoot really set the tone and made Dylan instantly fall in love with the business!  The shoot went off without a hitch though and it really was a lot of fun!  I'll throw in a few images from that shoot so you can enjoy them, too!

 

Dylan's senior session was way back in August of 2020; right before school opened back up.  The colors were vibrant, the air was warm (ok really it was hot) and Dylan was a champ through it all!  We had a great mix of country/urban and sports for her session, and I really love how some of her personality really shows in these!

 

But before we get to her images, let's read a little more about Dylan from her questionnaire!

 

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

Dylan: "The year is only a little over half way over and there are still so many great things that have happened. Some major accomplishments for me this year have been being on homecoming court and crowned queen, being runner up conference champions in volleyball and conference champions in basketball. Over all I’m super proud of how my school and friends have adapted to make this year seem more normal even through all the hard times."

 

Me: "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?"

Dylan: "I don’t have any major plans to finish out the year. I’m just hoping that we get to have the rest of basketball season, prom and graduation and normal as possible."

 

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

Dylan: "I have been involved in volleyball, basketball, track, student council, FFA, and National Honor Society."

 

Me: "What's your plan for this summer?"

Dylan: "This summer I plan to work and earn money for college in the fall. I also plan on spending time with my friends and family."

 

Me: "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 below."

Dylan: "Next year I plan on going to Simpson College and to play basketball. I’m not sure in my major and will most likely be going in undecided."

 

Me: "Do you have any advice for your underclassmen?"

Dylan: "My advice for the underclassmen would be to be thankful for every moment. High school really does go faster than you think and after all it is only 4 years of your life. High school can bring some of the best moments and you never know what can be taken away from you. Never talk anything for granted and live life to the fullest."

 

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

Dylan: "I absolutely loved all of my pictures but some of my favorites would have to be in my jeans with the black see-though cardigan."

 

And now let's see some of all of our favorite images:

Senior Spotlight: Miss. Jenna; Oskaloosa Iowa Photography

June 15, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

 

 

 

 

LogoLogo

 

Last but not at all the least, there's Jenna.

Where do I even start?

 

Jenna's soul is deep.  I knew it from the moment I first worked with her.  I didn't know why, but I saw it.

I learned why over time.

 

When we first worked together Jenna was very quiet.  She was an observer.  She watched and took it all in.  But as the year progressed, she grew and bloomed.  Her guard has dropped little by little every time I've seen her, and I will treasure the opportunity I've had to earn her trust and to get to know her.

 

The very first time I got to work with Jenna was waaaaaay back in the winter months of early 2019.  She was one of the models for the Bridal Dreams prom dress styled shoot in the snow.  It was COLD.  Very, very cold!  But all three girls, including Jenna took it in stride!

From there Jenna decided she wanted to be a part of the Class of 2020 MGP Senior Model team and it made my heart so happy that she wanted to be apart of it!  From there we had multiple shoots together from styled shoots to group shoots with the rest of the team.

 

For now, let's learn a little bit more about Jenna from her questionnaire!

 

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

Jenna: "I am most proud of receiving a huge scholarship that I dreamed of. I’m also proud of getting to work with a local interior designer so I get an inside look of what it will look like for me."

 

Me: 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?

Jenna: "Well I was really looking forward to prom this year and I’m crossing my fingers it will still happen."

 

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

Jenna: "I was involved in dance my freshmen year and I managed the girls swim team my junior and senior year. I also decided to play tennis this year but that has been put on hold for now."

 

Me: What's your plan for this summer?

Jenna: "I plan on working a lot to save up money for college but I am holding to have an amazing summer with my friends before we all go off to college."

 

Me: 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 below).

Jenna: "I plan on going to Iowa State University for Interior Design."

 

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

Jenna: "I love all of the picture but some of my favorite have to be worth my niece and the ones in the sunflowers."

 

Me: Is there anything else you would like shared?

Jenna: "It has been so fun to be a senior model for MGP and I would encourage everyone to do so if they have the chance."

 

And now let's look back at the very best year (and a half) ...

 

At the beginning there was the Bridal Dreams Snow Session.

Jenna; I cannot thank you enough for giving me the chance to get to know you.  You are incredibly strong and smart.  You are a light, whether you see it or not.  I believe so much that you were put in my life for a very big reason.  You, my dear, are meant for big things.

 

I wish you all of the very best luck as you head off to Iowa State this fall!
