Southeast Nebraska Family Photographer // Fairbanks Family // Group Generation Family Portrait Session // Wilber, Nebraska

NEBRASKA FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER | FAIRBANKS FAMILY | GROUP GENERATION FAMILY PORTRAIT SESSION | WILBER, NEBRASKA

I haven’t met a family quite as spunky as fun as the Fairbanks crew in quite some time! With the crew living in Fairbury, Beatrice, Lincoln and Omaha I commend them for finding a time that worked for everyone to get together and schedule an evening for pictures. I only have one sister and between our schedules plus our parents it’s quite a feat to get us together for some quick shots ;)

The Fairbanks family session was the most beautiful evening, minimal bugs, a bit windy at first (I’m blaming the girls for that one) otherwise the sun was warm and the littles were in a great mood. It’s basically what us photographers call a dream session! ;)

The whole crew met me near Wilber and we went to one of my farm locations near the Turkey Creek river bottom ground that we farm and we hung out and captured some pretty epic pictures. We started with all the formal “pretty” pictures that mom’s and grandma’s want. I always recommend we get those out of the way in the chance we lose interest of the kiddos and smiles aren’t cool anymore. Those we absolutely flew through, everyone smiled on command and we even got a few giggles out of grandma.

Once all the formals were over, we got busy having fun. The kids were my personal golf ball hunters and we went out in search of some around the yard. We did find some in the mud and I promised once we got through more of the session we could continue to search for more because let’s be honest, that was truly the highlight of the entire session for the kids. Way more fun than giggles and tickles with your mommies.

The kiddos took a break from searching just long enough for us to squeeze in a few shots by the grain bins and then posed for some pictures by the barn again with the whole family. I love doing generation family sessions because it’s so neat to see grandparents interact with their grandkids as well as siblings and in-laws getting together to laugh and give each other lots of jokes. This family made me feel so welcomed in and I secretly thought their Christmas get-togethers were probably something I’ve been missing out on my entire life, I knew I’d totally fit in with them ;)

We then zipped over to a gravel road right at sunset because the lighting was stunning and sunsets with gravel or dirt roads are of course my favorites!! We ran up and down that road, danced and spinned in circles. We had races, we collected rocks in our pockets, it truly is my favorite part of my sessions is just interacting and getting those little engaged and having a good time. Then, at the end of the session, after promise after promise of “last picture” we ended with a surprise gift of the kids each earning their own golf ball since we couldn’t find the others we were hunting for earlier. Their little eyes lit up and they all took off proudly with their favorite souvenir of the entire week. I love the simplicity of life as a little!!

Some of their outfit inspo I did round up and include links for just in case you’d like to get something similar for your own family sessions! I went a little more with rich warm tones but the links are all from Amazon so make sure to click around, there’s plenty of colors in each style!

Huge thank you to the Fairbanks family. You guys are such amazing people and have the most beautiful family. Wishing you many many years of health and laughter. Don’t stop searching for those hidden golf balls ;)

Amazon Women's & Teens Summer Outfits

Amazon Summer Dresses, Shirts, and Accessories for Women & High School Seniors Styled Photo Session

best of Amazon summer women’s outfits for high school senior photo session with dresses, rompers, sandals, wedges, summer shorts, tank tops and other accessories.

It’s summer! Which also means fun rompers, dresses, tanks and shorts. Layer things on for those bonfire nights and wear the least amount during the 90 degree Nebraska heat. We love summer sessions at sunset when the sun dips ever so slowly into the horizon and we thought it’d be great to create a fun style inspo post for our high school senior girls or even just for those wanting some fun summer looks for concerts or county fairs!

This posts theme is boho yellows, oranges, and pinks mixed with neutral toned creams, tans and browns. We went with colors that will stand out with green summer grasses and rich sun tan skinned. We felt this would be great for everyone to mix in with what they already might have in their own closet which is what we love about helping style our clients. Show us a few things that you already have and we can send you ideas to build off that. You don’t need an entire new wardrobe to create a magical session, just a few additional pieces to dress it up and freshen up your look! Our biggest suggestion is to pick a couple pieces with patterns and then keep the rest simplistic and focus on the textures instead of the fabrics.

*Keep in mind, A LOT of the links shared do have other color options so make sure to click the links if you see something you love! ;) Amazon is accessible to everyone so this is a fantastic way to share links with lots of options in sizing and colors. Please of course read reviews on sizing to make sure you’re getting quality items!


Amazon Dresses & Rompers

Alright our top ten inspo for dresses and rompers includes a lot of boho styled goodies. We like to recommend flowy types of outfits that don’t cling too tightly to the body. This enables us to shoot some fun, more candid and careful style shots. Those mixed with the more posed images are what give you the beautiful look for a styled session. So choose a few favorites, pair them up with fun bralettes (for modesty), stack on a few accessories or bracelets and necklaces and slip on a kimono or cardi towards the end of the evening. You’ll have a full beautiful look that you can wear even after your photo session!

Amazon Women’s Tanks & Shirts

We realize that not everyone is a fan of rompers or dresses and we actually recommend you mix it up and do a few different options. Sometimes we like to do sitting poses and dresses aren’t lady like for those things so here are a few cute shirt options! We usually recommend to think less patterns and more textures. That gives us depth and draws attention to the details but doesn’t pull away focus of you during the session. By choosing some basic colors you can really dress them up with accessories to bring out your personality!

Amazon-Womens-Clothing-Nebraska-High-School-Senior-Photographer-Kelsey-Nerud-2.jpg

Amazon Women’s Shorts

Shorts were a little tough to find more styles but we assumed you’d have some simple jean shorts or other shorts in your wardrobe already. Of course if you have something similar absolutely use that instead of buying new! If you’re going with a print on your shorts, we’d recommend a very simple plain white tank or tee shirt to go with it! ;)

Amazon-Womens-Clothing-Nebraska-High-School-Senior-Photographer-Kelsey-Nerud-3.jpg

Amazon Accessories

Accessories are so fun! We tossed in a few kimono’s to layer with as well as a couple of bralettes that have cute lace details in case those straps show. The second row is a couple different styles of earrings that are fun to dress up your whole style a little bit and the last row is some layered necklace options. Of course use what you’ve got at home too! ;)


Amazon Women’s Heels & Wedges Sandals

Can you tell I like shoes?! Also, can you tell that the espadrille is really my style right now? Yup. Wedges are grand when walking on uneven ground at a session so heads up, bring the cute shoes for flat surfaces and bring flip flops for walking in the tall grass areas! We won’t see your feet for those shots so no need to get those cute heels dirty!

Transformation Photoshop Editing // Noah Beck // Wilber-Clatonia High School // Dorchester Nebraska Photographer

NEBRASKA PHOTOGRAPHER | Photoshop Editing Comparison | High School Senior PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION | Clatonia, NEBRASKA

images-of-high-school-senior-boy-noah-jacobsen-from-wilber-clatonia-high-school-class-of-2019-clatonia-nebraska-photos-dirt-road-photography-southeast-nebraska-saline-county-kelsey-homolka-nerud-rural-farm-dorchester-cow-brown-calf-wrangler-cowboy-farmer-baseball-cap-blue-shirt-boots-graduation-yearbook-pictures

Every once in awhile, I like to share a behind the scenes look at the editing process so clients can see truly how much magic goes into the edit of your images. It’s not a drag and drop quick change and sometimes I can put hours into editing a session. I just hope others enjoy the images as much as I do capturing them and processing to create the magic I first see when I’m taking them!

So. To break down a little more what I all did while editing this picture (cause hey, I know some photographers are on here and want to learn too!). I first always cull my images in Adobe Bridge software. I star rate my top favs and what I plan to edit. Then as I edit, I change the star rating so I can see progress and know what I have left. After sorting, I pull into Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) and start working in there. Lighting, I adjusted the exposure, upped the contrast slightly, pulled the highlights down a little, lighted up the shadows, bumped the clarity a tad bit. I also did a slight bit of sharpening (I typically sharpen in Photoshop instead of in ACR). That’s the basics of my edit. From there I pull into Photoshop and will run a few actions as needed depending on what I want the final outcome to look like.

There it is. There’s my workflow on an image! Sometimes I will batch edit the ACR files because I shoot with the same settings and then will tweak individual’s as needed but I try to keep my workflow consist and quick paced. These are the basic editing that happens to all files clients see. Since I do IPS (in person sales) with my clients, I do 90% editing before they view images and then smooth skin, remove minor blemishes and liquify as needed once we choose which images you want to purchase. That saves me the extra time working on details that aren’t necessary.

I hope this is helpful. And, as always, if you have questions drop them in the comments or email me! I have been tossing around the idea of a few business geared mentoring or workshops and would love to know if people would be interested in that. I feel there are so many fantastic other photographers out there that can offer posing or editing but I don’t see a ton of things about running your business so this is something that’s really important to me.

Hayden’s laughter is contagious! He invited me to his farm near Clatonia, Nebraska and I couldn’t turn it down. Here is southeast Nebraska, anytime someone offers me a fresh farm to shoot at, I allllways agree and get excited! So we walked around his grandparents farm, looking at the barns, bins and cattle pens. We checked the beans and even climbed around hay bales. Then, he took me to this magical field where there were fresh alfalfa bales waiting for us. The sun fell perfectly and the perfect mist settled into the air. We got lots of giggles as we sat around the bales and brought out his trap shooting metals. It was seriously, so much fun!

High School Senior Session // Tara Schroeder // Fairbury High School // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

When Tara Schroeder contacted me planning out her senior session I knew we would create something magical. Little did I know, she’d invite me down to Fairbury, Nebaska and we’d have so much fun and she’d show me so many unique and beautiful locations! From totally urban buildings, to pretty brick alleys and even the Fairbury High School football stadium. All of it was so pretty and a fantastic change up for me so I wasn’t shooting my same old farm looks.

Tara is a senior at Fairbury High School and is active in softball and cheerleading. When I asked her what she does for fun she said her and her friends enjoy hanging out down at the river, going shopping and spending time around bonfires. I love that she enjoys the country life and also likes horses so that’s always an easy way for me to connect with my seniors. I found it hilarious when I asked what is one thing that people might not know about you and she said she doesn’t like cats. Girlfriend, so much me too (allergies can do that to ya)! Thanks again for trusting me to capture your most precious high school memories of your senior year. I cannot wait to meet the rest of your family here shortly for your family session!

I’ve literally watched Chase grow these past four years and every single time I watch one of the Wittenhagen kids graduate I know it’s one day closer to not getting to see them all the time. It’s official, their last senior is graduating!! Chase came out to the farm near Wilber, Nebraska to shoot in the same locations as his older brother and sister. We did a little bit of hiking through some tall grass to get to an old abandoned car but I think it was totally worth it once we saw the sun shining through perfectly! Thank you Chase for visiting with me, super proud that you’re going into the Navy. Cannot wait to see what you do and the places you go in life!

And to compare and throw back a little. Check out how Layne, Haeley and Chase all compare! It’s kind of fun to re-create the same poses with siblings ;)

Little sneak peek inside Seth’s senior portrait session! His dad brought this classic Ford out and we couldn’t help but snap a few (ok a lot) of shots with it! Seth, you truly are a fantastic kiddo and it’s been great getting to know you. Can’t wait to dig into your session to work on editing more of these. Southeast Nebraska sure does have some amazing locations including this one outside of Clatonia, Nebraska where we took some his senior photos.

High School Senior Session // Noah Jacobsen // Wilber-Clatonia High School // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

I absolutely LOVE when my seniors tell me they’ve got some ideas planned for their session. Noah did just that. He asked us to meet at his grandparents farm east of Wilber near Clatonia, Nebraska. And let me tell you, when I got there, I was in Heaven!! Nothing says welcome to southeast Nebraska quite like a farm session for a high school senior!

Between the barns, baby calves and the International Scout truck/jeep. I was totally happy and more than ready to get to work and start taking photos for him! Noah showed me around the farm, including introducing me to the piggy friends, of course all the cows and then even the other animals that were walking around. We stopped petting animals long enough to get some portraits but as always, I love getting to know my families as I shoot. I think it’s really fun he also included his grandpa’s tractor. Something about old tractors truly make me appreciate all of our modern equipment as well as get super sentimental that students want to include their families heritage. The big red barn screamed at my soul of course. ;)

I am DYING to share these images. Lizzie is such a strong leader and I am so proud I’ve gotten to watch her grow up. Truly, she is so strong! The light leaks, the sunflare, the laughter, the movement. I loved everything about these shots and I think you’ll love them too ;)

I've shot a few families with sets of twins in photos. But I haven't shot a family with multiple sets of twins until I met the Wehner family! It's been a joy catching up with the Wehner family from Sprague, Nebraska area and seeing how quickly their kiddos have changed in the past two years. As much of a challenge as getting everyone looking is, I'm willing to bet we've got some great ones to pick from! Doing family photography with local clients to the Dorchester, Nebraska area is always such a joy to me. I love meeting new people in the surrounding communities is a fabulous way to get to know new neighbors and friends. Thanks for coming out to the farm Wehner family.

What a fun evening spent on the farm with the Reetz family! I couldn't stop giggling and absolutely loved how much the kiddos truly loved playing and laughing with each other! We ended the session with a dirt road, a dusty sunset and some pretty bean fields. The kids all did so great and I'm so happy to share some more from their session here soon!!

What a fun group of kiddos! And the best part, I loooooved their names! Check it out, I present, Kaeden, Kynnedy, Kensingtyn and Kendryk. I have never seen such unique names that flow together so well. And they were all so well behaved!

I was so grateful that while we were styling the kiddos mom wanted to go with these beautiful neutral tones that were very light and fun to match the grass and farm scenery we decided to go with. The kids matched so well and it just fell together so fantastic. We played ring around the rosie, we played tag, we clapped and danced then as the sun was setting, we pulled out some "flowers" to blow into the wind. Honestly, the entire session was blissful and just reminded me to slow down and just let the kids play. Sometimes you get more out of a session by stepping back and letting the fun take over and setting the camera down for a little bit to join in the fun. I've been trying to focus more on the connections and less on the technical side of sessions, and honestly, it's totally paying off! ;)

Madison + Barrett did a collaboration with DRP and we spent a night with some pretty fun cheerleaders. First we took them over to Kelsey's to get styled with the perfectly matching and styled M+B pieces then we zipped out to the farm near Wilber to snap some fun shots of the girls. One of my favorite stacks that Kelsey has created in the Rose Gold Summer Sunset because it's so perfect for any outfit but I also love and wear Chloe's Camo set quite often for daily wear since it's so neutral colored! Basically, you can't go wrong with any set you choose from M+B!!

RISE UP

This year the cheer squad is really focusing on the team motto of "Rise Up" so I asked Kara to help fill us in on it. Here's what she had to say!

Rise up means different things to different people. Rise up meant that we're going to strive to do better for the school or the student body. It can mean we're going to do better with financial situations, or even take our competition to another level. Meaning we'll add more tumbling skills for state, or different things we've never done before. 

Basically, their entire team is focusing on rising higher and doing the best they can do. And I totally agree that it can be applied in so many ways to everyone, no matter your situation. Choose to rise up and be above what others are doing. Do the right thing. Be the good in someones life!!

Senior Model Rep's // Senior Session // Bre Zoubek & Lizzie Kubicek // Wilber-Clatonia High School // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

When I started my search for Model Reps I didn't know who I'd find. But I did know that I wanted girls who were inspiring, outgoing and fantastic role models in their communities. I wanted girls with goals who planned on moving mountains in the future. I lucked out when these two applied! These girls are not only stunning, but they're also really smart and driven young ladies who will do great things with their futures!

Bre and Lizzie are some of our Class of 2019 senior model reps and we were so excited to welcome them out to the farm near Dorchester, Nebraska to go play and get to know. Both Bre and Lizzie are from Wilber and will be graduating from Wilber-Clatonia High School in May of 2019. (It's insane to say that, but I'm already excited!)

Of course, I've known Bre since she was little (and my mom's maiden name matches her last name so that basically makes us directly related!). She's the sweetest, hardworking, humbled person I've met in awhile. She is always uplifting, always encouraging those around her and is constantly making friends and making others laugh. (cough, spitting gum by accident to make Lizzie crack up)

Lizzie I've also known practically forever. She's equally as sweet and is filled with fire just like her mama! She's always making people smile and willing to act funny just to give those around her a laugh. The girls are mega active and works all the time so getting to see these girls was tough but we made it work.

This was a quick impromptu shoot with a storm creeping in so we quickly did a mini session and got home before the winds hit but truly, it reminded me why I love my job when I got home to drop the images into my computer, I was in awe of just how amazing they looked and the images we captured.

"Looking beautiful begins by feelings beautiful." - Tresors De Luxe

Bre looked beautiful you guys!! And by prompting her to do a few flow posing moves, we brought out her inner beauty as well.

Ultimately, the end goal of each session, is to remind clients just how amazing and beautiful they are!!

Bre is one of our Class of 2019 senior model reps and we were so excited to welcome her out to the farm near Dorchester, Nebraska to go play and get to know her. 

Of course, I've known Bre since she was little (and my mom's maiden name matches her last name so that basically makes us directly related!). She's the sweetest, hardworking, humbled person I've met in awhile. She is always uplifting, always encouraging those around her and is constantly making friends and making others laugh. (cough, spitting gum by accident to make Lizzie crack up)

First senior of the summer and I cannot wait to jump in and meet the Class of 2019! Ricky and his family has always been so fun to catch up with and I love visiting their farm near Sprague, Nebraska where they have an amazingly gorgeous log cabin and are surrounded by beautiful trees and tall grass. Just wait until you see the rest of his session!
