Today's Senior Spotlight is for Mr. Brayden!

 

Brayden will will graduate from Tri-County Community School next month!

 

I had the privilege of meeting Brayden last year when he tagged along for a friend's session and then he had his session the next day!  I loved his personality and he was willing to go along with almost all of my ideas!  Although I feel like his choices in socks were a little questionable, I still enjoyed hanging out with him during his session!  He definitely has some of my favorite guy sport images, too!  Also, I need to note that he had THE BEST outtakes of any dude senior session I have ever taken.  Just wait until you see!

We stayed around the Keokuk County area for his session, using small town buildings for a lot of our backdrops.  I love how we have that option in our small communities!

 

Brayden had filled out his questionnaire pre-pandemic, so some of his answers may reflect that!

 

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

Brayden: "I’m very happy about how my football season went. I am also very happy about my grades and being accepted to ISU."

 

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?

Brayden: "I plan to go out for track and baseball hopefully we end the year strong in those. I’m looking forward to the senior class trip that is going to Tennessee."

 

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

Brayden: "Yes. Football, Basketball, Track, Baseball, National Honor Society, and Speech and Drama."

 

Me: What's your plan for this summer?

Brayden: "I plan to play baseball and get ready to move to college. Spend some time with my friends before I leave."

 

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).

Brayden: "I am going to ISU to major in Animal Ecology. I want to work at a national park."

 

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

Brayden: "My basketball ones for sure and also the ones by the lake."

 

Me: Is there anything else you would like shared?

Brayden: "I loved getting my pictures taken it was a wonderful time!!"

I ask almost every guy to do the neck scratch and almost every single reaction is looking at me like I'm crazy.  But I love how GQ it turns out to be!

Today's Senior Spotlight is for Miss. Hannah!

 

Hannah will be a graduate of Iowa Valley High School in Marengo, Iowa this spring!  She is also one of the Class of 2020 MGP Senior Models!  She has been a thrill to have on the team; I love her style and her personality so much!  Hannah isn't afraid to be herself and she has a take-charge mentality, which is so refreshing in this day-and-age (Do I sound old when I say that?  I feel like I sound old when I say that).

I could always count on Hannah having fun during photo shoots and she was always one to strike up conversation with the others, too!  Hannah is SO very smart and I am beyond excited to see what she does in the coming year(s)!

 

Let's learn a little bit more about Hannah from her Senior Spotlight!

 

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

Hannah: "This year I had the honor of portraying Mother Superior in the musical Sister Act. I have also been invited to Allstate as a non-performer for large group speech. My group entered our short film Daisy. I am excited that I have been excepted to the University of Iowa."

 

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?

Hannah: "This year I am looking forward to my senior year of high school soccer and individual speech. This year I am entered in the categories of story telling and acting."

 

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

Hannah: "Over my four years in high school I have been involved with soccer, choir, drama, small group and large group speech, student government, Speech Leadership Advisory Panel, FFA, FCS club, and silver cord."

 

Me: What's your plan for this summer?

Hannah: "This summer I plan to work in order to save for college. I would also like to do some traveling to different states with friends."

 

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).

Hannah: "This fall I will be attending the University of Iowa. I plan on majoring in Business and Theater. I would also like a minor in Spanish. I am not entirely sure what I will use my majors for, but I do know that I enjoy helping others and working with children."

 

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

Hannah: "I love the pictures from my main shoot. I would also love to see the pictures from the prom photo shoot."

 

Me: Is there anything else you would like shared?

Hannah: "I plan on studying abroad while in college, and I can’t wait to experience new things in college."

 

Ok, now I'm ready to look back at the last year with Miss. Hannah!

 

First up is from our very first shoot together!

Senior Spotlight: Mr. Adam; Cedar Rapids Iowa Photography

April 13, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

 

 

 

 

LogoLogo

 

Today's Senior Spotlight is focusing on Mr. Adam from Swisher, Iowa!  Adam will be a graduate of Prairie High School in the Cedar Rapids area this May!

 

Adam and his mom found me through another MGP senior (and his mom) and I am SO glad we had the opportunity to work with each other!  I LOVE Adam's personality and how he wasn't afraid to have some fun with his session!  Like, for example, when I was just joking and asked him to go down a slide!  Those images became some of our favorites!

It did end up being pretty chilly for Adam's session.  In fact, I remember seeing some snow on the ground in spots here and there around the farm where they lived!  They had such a cool spot for images, we decided it would be best to start at the farm and then we ended in Cedar Rapids.  By the end of the evening I think I can fairly say that we were all FROZEN, but we were having so much fun!  I think some of my favorite images were also at the ball field in Swisher.  You could tell that was Adam's comfort zone for sure!  He did make me work a little to get a few smiles out of him, but it was totally worth it!

Enough of my chatting though.  Let's learn a little about Adam from his spotlight!

 

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

Adam: "I recently was inducted into GNHS (German National Honor Society). I committed to Iowa State for the fall of 2020. I also took the ACT and received a 32 which has assisted me in scholarship preparation."

 

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?

Adam: "I'm just looking forward to preparing for the next chapter of my life and all the little unknowns that accompany it."

 

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

Adam: "Just Wiffleball. The 2020 season looks to be the biggest in my league’s history."

 

Me: What's your plan for this summer?

Adam: "Run the Wiffleball League. Work to build up savings for 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).

Adam: "I intend to be a civil engineer at Iowa State, with a minor in German and maybe environmental studies."

 

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

Adam: "My favorites probably would be the truck, the Blitzball photos, and anything black and white."

A big THANK YOU to Adam and his family for letting us into your lives and for showing us around your favorite places!  It was a perfect (even cold) session!

 

I wish the very best to you as you head off to Iowa State this fall!  Enjoy your extra time off as much as you can right now!

Senior Spotlight: Miss. Claire; Knoxville Iowa Photography

April 08, 2020  •  2 Comments

Where do I even start with Claire?!

Miss. Claire is one of the class of 2020 Marie Grace Photography Senior Models and each and every one of these girls has a very special place in my heart, especially Claire.  I have had the privilege of getting to know Claire pretty well over the last year as we have had multiple portrait sessions together.  Her personality and sense of humor SHINES.  I know for sure whenever Claire is around, there will be laughing.  I appreciate a whole lot that she laughs at my jokes and then she will hand some right back to me!

It will be hard to watch these girls go off at the end of this year.  My heart hurts for them and I wish so much they could be enjoying a few more of their lasts being seniors in high school, but I know they are taking this in stride and they are making the best of this situation!

 

This is definitely going to be a longer blog as we will look back at the entire year of Claire being with MGP.  It is SO bittersweet to look back on these memories, but they definitely make me smile!

 

Before we get to the images though, let's get to know Claire just a little bit more..

Claire will be a graduate of Knoxville High School!

 

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

Claire: "My major accomplishments my senior year was  being captain of my dance team society! Also maintaining my grade point average and being nominated and winning homecoming queen. I am most proud of being captain of the dance team and the cross country team because I felt I have learned about myself and how to be a leader through it!"

 

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?

Claire: "I am looking forward to my spring beak vacation to Cabo, Mexico!!"
^^I bet she didn't think she would get such an extended Spring Break!

 

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

Claire: "I was involved in the Knoxville Dance Team, cross country team, musical, national honors society, camera club, and student senate."

 

Me: What's your plan for this summer?

Claire: "My plans for the summer is to work and hang out with my friends and family before I leave for 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).

Claire: "I am going to the University of Iowa this next fall! I’m going to major undecided but with interest in psychology, pre child-life, and speech pathology!"

 

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

Claire: "I loved my very first shoot with all of the flowers and my solo senior session!! I loved going to the flower place in Winterset then going and getting ice cream!!"

 

Me: Is there anything else you would like shared?

Claire: "I love Alley so much!!"

 

Let's start at the very beginning..

Starting with this class, I decided to do a photo shoot if they chose to sign up as a model team member right after their consultation!  This is something super fun for the kids and it warms them up a little bit to being in front of the camera!  This was Claire's first time in front of my camera!

Ok, I think I am going to cry a few tears now.  Just watching how much this girl has grown in the last year makes my heart so happy.

Thank you so much to Claire and your family for letting me be a part of your last year of high school.  It was such an honor to get to know all of you and I will miss our little meet-ups at the Walmart in Oskaloosa!  :)

Wishing you nothing but the absolute best Claire.  You deserve nothing less.

Senior Spotlight: Mr. Holden; Sigourney Iowa Photography

April 07, 2020  •  1 Comment

 

 

 

 

LogoLogo

 

Today's Senior Spotlight is focusing on none other than Mr. Holden from Sigourney High School!

 

Holden was actually really lucky last year and ended up with one of the few decent weather days for his session!  I love how his images turned out and I think that his personality definitely shines in these!  Holden has one of those 100 mega-watt smiles, and I loved how he would just go with the flow but he also had a lot of his own ideas, too!

Holden filled out his questionnaire before COVID-19 hit, and some of his answers reflect his plans before we knew the world would be put on pause!  I still think they are great answers though, and I am DEFINITELY curious as to what his plans were for one of his answers!

So, let's learn a little about Holden!

 

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

Holden: "I’ve came out of my shell a lot and put myself out there this year and make it a blast."

 

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?

Holden: "Prom I plan on doing something interesting but everyone will just have to see what it is if I do it."

 

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

Holden: "I bowl through the high school and I recently got my Eagle Scout."

 

Me: What's your plan for this summer?

Holden: "I’m headed to Las Vegas for a week to bowl and get everything sorted for 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).

Holden: "I’m going to bow in college not one hundred percent sure where I’m going to college yet, but I want to major in business."

 

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

Holden: "I personally enjoyed the nature ones more than anything."

 

See what I was saying about that prom answer... I'm all curious! 

But let's check out some of the images from his session!

 

We started his session at Keokuk County Bowl!

And then we traveled over to the alley right next to the studio; one of my favorite spots!  And these turned out to be some of my favorite images of Holden!

Ask him if his rear ended up getting wet for these!

He actually took a dare after this and ran into the water when we took the last image!  I love how fun he was!

 

I had a blast with Holden and his mom during his session!

Thank you Holden (and Rhonda) for choosing Marie Grace Photography for your senior portraits!
