Senior Photos on a Kansas Farm: Rachel November 30, 2008


A true Kansas farm girl. Capturing senior photos of a true Kansas farm girl on her own Kansas farm was easy. With a capital “E” — especially because the location was perfect for unique and personal senior photos, and she’s not only beautiful, but a great little model. Oh, and she’s my cousin. :)

Rachel’s senior photos were awesome. I always love when I can leave a session with images that I’ve never captured before — it’s something I strive for with each shoot, and this one made it so easy to capture images that were unlike any other…

Enter Rachel’s two-time Grand Champion goat:


And you just can’t do senior photos on a farm without the one and only John Deere tractor.



There’s nothing quite like a white two-story farm house with a wrap-around porch. The photos with Rachel in front of the house will be really fun to have when she’s older, I think.


Senior photos are a great time for close-up head shots. I love close-ups, especially on gorgeous seniors!


Isn’t she just lovely? What a beautiful smile!



I would love a backdrop like this in Kansas City… this is the old milk barn on their property:


And a spot like this… you just can’t find it in the city. I LOVE these images in the middle of their pasture, on a hill just past the pond (it was COLD out there!).



Rachel, you did such a great job!! I know you’ll love your images.
