South Dakota Senior Portrait Photographer | Jada :: Class of 2017 Platte-Geddes Senior

Have you ever met someone who is just magnetic? Kind and genuine and just an amazing young person to be around? World, meet Jada. She embodies all that is good in the world wrapped up into a bubbly personality and one of the best laughs. I've photographed both her and her sister and if you didn't know it, y ou'd think they were twins. They even sound alike! Her session was the true definition of adventure, shot in Jada's hometown of Platte. From a day full of wind to a runaway taxi, her session was full of stories and gorgeous images. Enjoy a few of our favorites.

Love this super simple cold shoulder top that we shot in Platte's downtown. It worked in a lot of cool places!

Ok, so lets first talk about this romper. Hello gorgeous royal blue that literally compliments Jada's blonde hair and warm complexion. And secondly, this was such a cool eclectic location! It was filled with tons of hidden gems that worked so well.

It's not every day that you find a location that coordinates so picture perfect with your senior's outfit, but when you do, you use it.

If you ever see Jada, Samantha or I, please ask about the adventure that was this taxi. First, it's actually a taxi limo. It holds like 13-15 people? Seriously, no joke. And when you live in a town of population tiny, you don't often get the opportunity to use a taxi (let alone a taxi limo) as a prop for a senior location.

Just fun and simple. We all know those are my faves.

We had almost no light left in that bus and I think it was about 800 degrees but I LOVE this idea and I'm always stoked to execute this every time we try it.

And lastly, some way too fierce volleyball images in the PG gym. I remember watching Jada play after we took these images. The woman is a volleyball ninja. I can't wait to watch her career unfold at DWU this fall. (We also made a really cool sports collage and senior grad banner with a few of these images.)

Thanks for choosing KSP, Jada, it was a pleasure working with you, my dear!
