CEDAR RAPIDS SENIOR PICTURES

JADE - XAVIER HS CLASS OF 2018

Whoa, it's been a minute since I've blogged and way over due.  I am so excited to share this session with you.  Jade and I met a few years ago when she came along to her sister's senior portraits and has been excited for her senior portraits ever since!  We started out at the Cedar Rapids Public Library with an urban look.  I love the glassy cool tones of the background that perfectly set off her skin tone.

After this spot we ventured a couple blocks away to an old building with the most amazing blue garage type door.  I could not get enough of this location!  Her outfit looks KILLER against the blue and perfectly matches the color of her eyes.

From there we wanted to go for a more natural look with greenery so we headed out to Palisades Kepler State park.  Her floral dress went with the grass and trees perfectly and that last outfit in the sand....to die for!

City High Senior

Kenya - class of 2017

I am so thankful that Kenya's mom showed me a brand new location right in the middle of Iowa City.  It has the coolest rocks and went perfect with her green jacket!  I just love the accessories this time of year.  Kenya had great jackets and scarves.  The weather was beautiful!

Kenya told me during her photo shoot that she aspires to be a pharmacist.  I can't wait to find out what kind of adventures she will go through reaching those dreams.  For the last outfit we found an old basketball hoop to focus on her love of basketball instilled in her by her dad. 

thank you Kenya for a fun photo shoot!  I'm so glad to have enjoyed a beautiful day outside with you and your mom.  Good Luck with your senior basketball season!

SENIOR GIRL - IOWA CITY

Elaina - WHS class of 2017

Elaina loves nature and being outside and it was important to have that represented in her senior photo shoot.  We started out at a rustic bridge surrounded by the changing leaves.  Perfect for her casual and laid back style!

The second spot brings out the yellow in her dress.  I love the stone and yellow leaves we found at this spot.  You would never guess we were right next to a busy highway!

The Ivy in the third spot couldn't have been more perfect.  I love how Elaina's skin pops against the colors...and those eyes!

thank you elaina for a great time finding spots with nature!  P.S. really jealous of your "drug rug" ;)

Senior Pictures - Downtown Iowa City

Abbi - West HS class of 2017

After starting out with some family shots of Abbi and her mom and brother we stayed in the rustic ally to get some of her in black dress.  The wind was a little out of control but blowing hair is never a bad thing!  We stayed in the downtown Iowa City area for 3 of her looks.

Abbi's looks were all so different and it's hard to pick a fav, but the third outfit might be just that.  I love how it paris with the sidewalk and greenery.  Even the twinkle lights in the background add just the right touch.

Thank you Abbi for a fun photo shoot with so many great outfits!  Good luck with your senior year and I can't wait to show you more from your session!

Iowa Senior Guy

Logan - Class of 2017

When I met Logan I quickly learned of all the things he loves about life; having fun with friends, getting his tuck muddy and finding crazy places to ride his dirt bike.  I knew right off the bat that we needed to include these things in his senior portrait session and then I found out that his truck was given to him by his grandpa.  No brainer!  We met at a dead end street that was perfect for parking his truck and getting a little dirty.  I got to hear about all the crazy things that he and his friends do and create some great portraits of Logan at the same time.  This is only the first half of his portrait experience and I can't wait to finish his session when the leaves change in the fall.  Maybe I'll let him wash his truck for those...

Iowa City Senior Photo Shoot

ANNA - WEST HIGH - CLASS OF 2017

iowa-city-senior-photography-004.jpg

Anna is one of the first to be photographed this senior season and I am so excited to show some sneak peeks of her amazing photo shoot!  I knew her session would be awesome when we met for her styling consult and saw the outfit choices she had made.  We had such a great time exploring downtown Iowa City finding the prefect locations for her wardrobe.

For her first outfit I chose one of my favorite places to photograph...a parking ramp.  The neutral tones and clean lines matched her grey top and made her jewelry pop!  I can always find interesting light patterns on sunny days near a parking ramp.

Anna rocked a sweater despite the upper 90 degree weather, and wore a super cute romper for her last look.  I paired it with some greenery while staying true to the urban style she wanted to achieve for her senior portrait experience.    

Thank You Anna for a crazy fun senior photo shoot, I can't wait for you to see the rest of your images!
