Urban to Country Senior Feature

Megan - Highland 2019

From start to finish Megan's session was a so fun!  We met at Zen Salon and Spa where Frankie did her hair and makeup then we ventured into the back allies of downtown Iowa City.  Her first outfit was this edgy red crop top with jeans and a leather jacket.  Perfect fit for murals, graffiti and metal stairs.

Personally, one of my all time favorite things is camo.  Camo anything.  So I was super excited to see Megan's camo dress outfit with jean jacket.  I paired this look with another of my favorite things...a parking garage.  If you've been following me a while you know that I shoot in parking garages all the time.  I always find creative ways to photograph and interesting light patterns.  Plus Iowa City has so many great parking ramps to choose from!

For the next two outfits we went to the art building area of the U of I campus where we found two completely different looks right next door to each other!

And now for something completely different.  Megan wanted a well rounded session from urban to country so we hoped on the road to her next two looks.  First stop...Highland HS softball field. By this time the sun was starting to set and the light was just dreamy!

For the grand finale we grabbed a hat and moved into the classic Iowa prairie grass during golden hour.  What better way to end a session?

Iowa City Senior Feature

LAUREN - twenty nineteen

Lauren's Luxe Senior Session was amazing to say the least.  After hair and makeup at Zen Salon and Spa we headed out into the downtown Iowa City district for her first and most formal outfit.  Her classic black and white striped romper goes perfectly with the clean and modern design of the U of I Voxman Music Building.  A few of her friends even jumped in for  shot!

Her next outfit lent itself well for bricks and ivy.  I love how her jacket pops against the greenery!  We even got a few shots of Lauren with her family in this outfit!

Next it's time for something a bit more casual.  Lauren wanted to showcase her love for Iowa with a fun tee and we picked a funky mural to set it off.  On our way to change we can across some steps with the perfect yellow stripes and just had to stop and use them!

After having some fun in the Iowa tee we ventured over to the Northside of downtown Iowa City where we found a backdrop to compliment Lauren and her sisters maroon outfits.  Aren't they the cutest sisters ever?  I couldn't resist getting a couple images of Lauren's sister Anna by herself as well.

If you've been following me on social media you know that I like urban settings for seniors, however this more natural location might be my favorite of Lauren's session.  The light was AMAZING at the Fossil Gorge and we found a field of clover as well as those striking birch trees.

As if this session wasn't epic enough we ended up at the Coralville Lake Beach for a grand finale.  The sun was starting to set giving us the sweetest light yet.  Lauren was even up for getting in the water!  Her bestie was right there with a towel as soon as we were done.  We even managed to escape stepping in goose poo!
