South Dakota Senior Portrait Photographer | Katelin :: Class of 2017 Wagner Senior

My night with Katelin literally flew by. It was just her and I trying out some new spots and trying a few ideas I had rambling around in my brain. We did a little country/urban mix and I am absolutely in love with so many of her images. She's so fun to chat and joke with and just the true definition of lovely. Enjoy our favorites!

Loved this relaxed look that Katelin wore first. Even little towns like good ol' Wagner, South Dakota can provide beautiful backdrops that match anyone.

Katelin sent me images, before her session, of thin trees and unique back light. I did a little exploring and found this little valley. Those stumps were so tall and I couldn't get the image of someone standing on them out of my mind. So when I asked Katelin if she was up for trying something a little different, of course she obliged. And much to our surprise, no one fell. And by no one, I mean Katelin was a basically a gold medal gymnast on that tiny stump!

Ending images. End of day light. The deep color that washes over everything is just too perfect. Thank you for choosing me to do your senior pictures, Katelin! It was so fun to work with you!
