South Dakota Senior Portrait Photographer | Saige :: Class of 2017 West Boyd Senior

Sometimes I have really weird ideas. Sometimes they pan out, and sometimes they don't. Most times something sort of cool at least comes out of it. The day we shot Saige's summer session, it was cloudy on and off and we were really chasing light toward the end when she wanted to wear her prom dress. So we tried something sort of fun. I stuck her in the water and had everyone throw water up so that it would look like rain, that's right guys, one of my favorite images from the whole season is staged. Gasp. But when Mother Nature won't give you what you ask for. You have to make it yourself. 

The rest of Saige's sessions weren't as eventful (unless you count her beautiful pup trying to steal the show and be a model) although that prom dress and a camouflage jacket was a first for me. Overall, these still are some of my favorite and unique images from last years season. This girl is wonderful and so beautiful inside and out. Here are some of our favorites.

Thanks for entertaining all my craziness, Saige! You're a good sport and I hope you have a wonderful college experience! All the best, my dear!
