Rick and I LOVE photographing high school senior photos Laramie always keeps us on our toes with unique fun loving clients. When we received a message from Morgan, all the way from California we were so excited to take her to our FAVORITE locations that just scream WY and help welcome her to Laramie in style. She flew all the way to Wyoming with her sweet Momma in tow.
We do photograph a lot of city and urban locations but if you were to ask us what out favorite type of location is, hands down it would be natural wide open spaces every time. We just love the Happy Jack area in between Laramie and Cheyenne, WY. You can find gorgeous meadows where you can see for miles, aspen trees that light up like heaven and that token sagebrush that we have come to love living here. When we asked Morgan what type locations SHE preferred she gave us just one word, Wyoming. This sweet girl will be attending the University Of Wyoming this Fall after being accepted into their fantastic AG program. When you ask for Wyoming, Wyoming is totally what you are going to get! We knew that fullfilling her dream for true Wyoming senior session would be a challenge. Challenge totally accepted 🙂
We started with a location that we adore because of the pines that can be found there. Lush, BIG and so breathtaking. They survive and provide lovely locations for us through the summer as well as the winter and to us these evergreens are a big part of our WY landscape. We were also sure to include open meadows filled with golden rod ‘wheaties’ as we call them. In addition to our classic portraiture we also encourage Morgan not to look at the camera but to walk the dirt roads, twirl in the fields and jump in the sagebrush. When it comes to high school senior photos Laramie sessions are always fun loving and hardly ever stiff and boring! We loved that Morgan brought balloons with her that spelled out ‘YAY’ and allowed us to have her jump and be crazy for a few photos with them. God even stilled that Wyoming wind for us so she didn’t blow away!
A lot of people ask us what they should wear for their senior photos. We usually recommend they DO find outfits they feel confident in. Clothes that say something about who they are. What we DONT tell them to do is feel pressure to dress up, change their style or choose things that think would look great for photos even if they would never wear it in real life. Morgan knocked it out of the park when it came to outfit selection. She was a little bit Fall with a gorgeous scarf and the bergundy she chose was so perfect for the natural scenery. A little bit of country style crept into her session when she paired a lovely wildflower printed sundress with the cutest cowboy boots! Love how when she changed into this outfit she was kicking her heels up in glee. Isn’t that the amazing thing about clothes, how they make us FEEL? She really did think of everything including some awesome Brown and Gold gear repping the University of Wyoming proudly. She fit right in with her POKE PRIDE don’t you think?
Morgan, thank you so much for reaching out to us all the way from California. It was such a pleasure to work with you and to meet your sweet Momma. We were so touched with just how PROUD she is of you and how she would go on and on telling us of your achievements and how special you are. We genuinely hope we gave life to your dream of Wyoming Senior Photos and did it justice. We will be praying for you as you complete your senior year and are excited to have you headed out West in the Fall. Don’t forget those cowboy boots!
When picking outfits for high school senior photos Laramie girls often rock boots and jeans. Love that Morgan styled this up a bit and chose boots and a gorgeous wildflower print sundress! This was just perfect with all the gorgeous sunshine we had for her session! There is just something about Wyoming scenery paired with warm golden light, what an absolute gift we had for her day!
Morgan came to visit us all the way from California! She is planning on attending UW and wanted that goldenrod Wyoming feel to her photos!
When it comes to high school senior photos Laramie has some AMAZING options for beautiful locations. When you can pair those gorg locations with ethereal sunshine things just turn out so lovely!
Don’t you just ADORE Morgan’s glasses? This girl knew how to rock her own style for her high school senior photos Laramie watch out!
We love to showcase many photos of our clients looking at our cameras in true portrait fashion. There is also something so lovely however about more editorial photos like this one. Where our clients are moving, looking off somewhere else or doing something other than smiling for our cameras. Love this field and sundress combo for sure!
Morgan is such a fun and spontaneous young lady. She brought along balloons that spelled ‘YAY’ to celebrate this new season in her life. We loved getting to incorporate these into her session. Love it when clients choose to infuse some of their personalities into their session.
When we photograph high school senior photos Laramie girls wear UW gear all the time. Morgan was no exception, this California girl fit right in rocking her brown and gold! GO POKES right? SO excited to have her on campus and living here in Laramie very soon!
There is something about real life genuine laughs in a photo. Love it when our clients relax, forget we are photographing them and instead just interact and be themselves. You can just hear Morgan’s laugh in this portrait and boy do we adore it!
