What a whirlwind of a day, but it was intentionally perfect. We invited twelve family’s out to the farm near Wilber, Nebraska for our annual fall family mini sessions and it everything went smooth with less than three tiny humans in tears. We quickly turned those tears into smiles with candy surprises at the end so no worries about casualties. ;) I was so worried we wouldn’t have nice weather since the week before we had snow falling but the day was amazing with sunshine, a slight breeze and 60 degree temps. With just the right amount of rich fall colored leaves but still touches of green in the grass.

The thing I love most about my fall family mini’s is getting to see and catch up with a lot of clients once a year. Every single year it’s crazy how much their kiddos have grown but I love establishing a friendship and building trust with the littles. This year, we had families from Milford, Crete, Hallam, Wilber, Clatonia, and even Beatrice area! It’s incredible to see how much of a distance everyone is willing to come to meet me!

It’s such an honor that parents invite me back into their lives and getting family pictures is something I always encourage everyone to do. Sometimes life gets cut short, and you struggle with the thought of not having a family picture to reminiscence over, let’s take those thoughts away and schedule some family memories of your own!!

High School Senior Session // Chase Wittenhagen // Pius X High School // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

I was over the moon excited when I got a call from the Wittenhagen family letting me know that Chase wanted to book his senior session with me. But once the excitement wore off, I realized it was such a bittersweet feeling for me to see the final kiddo graduating high school. I’ve know the Wittenhagen crew for going on almost five years now and they’ve been there the first few years I was growing and learning as a business. I remember when Chase’s brother Layne was a senior and their first visit out to the farm we chatted about his future plans. Then, a short year later, his sister, Haeley came out. We also chatted about future plans, and even included siblings and grandma in some photos as well that year. Then, a year passed, I kept track of the family through social media, and I missed seeing them. Hearing updates and thrills on new kiddos accomplishments. It’s been such a fun time working with them.

I think what I love most about photographing high school seniors is getting to talk with them. Learn about their future plans and goals. Talk about all of their accomplishments throughout school and what they’re doing to make the most of time during their senior year. Laugh about the funny memories with friends or even jokes they’ve played. I love getting to compare each school system and what rules they have. Sometimes I find myself amazed with certain things they can get away with now (cough, phones in class).

Chase is attending Pius X High School located in Lincoln, Nebraska and is part of the Class of 2019. I love that he isn’t afraid to be spontaneous and go trekking to go find new locations that are unique for his session out on the farm. We tried our best to go to different spots than his siblings so everything would be new. While talking to Chase, I learned he plans on going on after school to join the Navy. And I am so proud of him for that.

It has been an absolute pleasure getting to know Chase and his family and I wish him nothing but the best in life after high school. Thank you so much for choosing me to be your senior photographer! I hope your family enjoys the pictures as much as I do! Thanks again!

Farm. Horses. Sunsets. Trucks. And American Flags.

These are the things that all were included during Maddie's senior session. These are also some of my top fav things about getting to meet and style a senior session specifically tailored to each and every senior I get to meet.

Maddie came down from Lincoln Nebraska to visit me and brought lots of ideas and props as well. Her hobbies include anything country, and outdoors along with her favorite thing, everything equine. What I loved learning the most about her, she barrel races! I find it so neat when I learn what unique hobbies my seniors have, and I love keeping track of them after they graduate. I like seeing them succeed in college and check in often to see what they're up to. To me, it's not just about capturing your senior pictures, it's about making a connection and friendship that I get to continuously check in on and cheer my seniors (and their families) on from the sidelines for years to come!

Maddie brought her horse out to the farm where we had so much fun playing in the tall grass, avoiding bugs and just talking about all things high school. She told me how she loves to go to Plamor (something I once used to do over ten years ago back when I was in high school) and explained how she loves driving her truck up and down O Street with her American Flags on the back of it.

Thank you Maddie and Jenny for coming down to visit, I truly enjoyed getting to know you both and wish you all the best luck after high school!

Family Photo Session // The Caldwell Family // Lincoln Nebraska Photographer

NEBRASKA PHOTOGRAPHER | CALDWELL FAMILY | FAMILY OF THREE SESSION | FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION | LINCOLN, NEBRASKA

nebraska photographer kelsey homolka nerud takes family portrait session photos of family from lincoln nebraska photo is of a family of three with maroon and plaid colored outfits at sunset on a farm with tall grass and a one year old baby boy

Eek! I am so happy that Caldwell's came back this fall to the farm so I could catch up with Mister Maddox and see how he's doing. I typically see my milestone babies through their first year and then miss out on them once they get older so it's nice to see them grow and change. Maddox has grown (A LOT) and it's so fun watching him learn words and have favorite things.

Eeek! See, wasn't kidding. This family is adorbs! And I know their entire journey and just how hard it's been for them. That makes their little firefighter that much more special to all of us. I just adore them!
