Chippewa Falls Senior Portrait Andrew Samplawski Photography

Kiara | Chippewa Falls Senior Session

FEATURED SENIOR | KIARA! I had a fun day with Kiara, cruising around Chippewa Falls for her senior portrait session.

Kiara enjoys volleyball and plans to attend Winona State University after her graduation with the class of 2019. Growing up, she wanted to be a doctor because she so very much enjoyed the TV show, Grey’s Anatomy. Now, she plans on becoming a psychiatrist because of her love for helping others. Kiara and I had a meet and greet before her session and that helped her to prepare for our senior session. It also helped me get to know her so I could plan ahead on the spots we visited while capturing her portrait session. Even though Kiara started out nervous, she opened up quickly and we had so much fun.

One of my favorite things about senior portrait sessions is how many different backgrounds we end up using. From some of the more urban backdrops downtown to fun in the hydrangeas, to literally stopping traffic, and then finally ending up at the waterfront, we explored so many different looks and different backdrops. Chippewa Falls has so many different sides, as does Kiara! It was fun to explore them all.

I have to say that some of my favorite images were taken at the end of the session when we were at the water. Kiara kicked off her shoes and splashed off the side of a dock and then, after a quick costume change, I pulled out the fog machine and took some more dramatic shots in her stunning gown!

Kiara, thank you so much for trusting me to be your senior portrait photographer.  I had a complete blast during your portrait session. I hope your senior year is amazing and wish you the best of luck at Winona State!

Irvine Park Senior Session Andrew Samplawski Photography

Clayton | Irvine Park Senior Session

 

Today’s featured senior is Clayton! I met up with Clayton over the summer to capture his senior portrait session in Irvine Park in Chippewa Falls.

Clayton says the most enjoyable part of high school was making memories with all his friends in the sports he plays. Through the different sports teams and sporting events he’s been part of through his high school career, he’s had the opportunity to meet new people and make amazing memories. He said that was a rewarding and enjoyable experience.

Growing up, he wanted to be an architect because building things and designing things captivated his interest. He called it a form of art that is displayed to anyone who even walks by! Now, he plans to be a financial advisor to help other people be responsible with their money to have a better life. I think that’s such a worthy and admirable goal! While he hasn’t if he will be attending college in Madison or La Crosse, with that outlook I am sure Clayton will be successful!

Clayton was awesome to hang out with during his senior portrait session. We jammed out to some tunes during his session. I have to say, Clayton has some great style! He was up for having some fun which allowed me to be more creative with his senior photography. We hit up some locations I’ve never photographed before!

Clayton was a big help in finding different backgrounds in the forest at Irvine. It was an adventure that we took together and I had a blast with him. In fact, Clayton told me that he has even more ideas for portraits now, if he had the opportunity to have another session.  I love when senior portrait sessions are a fun experience! It means I’m doing a good job at being a senior photographer!

Clayton, thanks for asking me to photograph your senior portrait session! I had a blast adventuring in the woods at Irvine Park and I hope we can do it again someday!

Jarrod | Chippewa Falls Senior Session

Today’s featured senior is Jarrod! I met up with Jarrod for a senior portrait session in and around the Chippewa Falls area.

Jarrod opted not to have a meet and greet ahead of our senior portrait session, so I met him for the first time on the day of the shoot.  I loved getting to spend time with him and get to know him. For a gentleman who didn’t really want to take pictures – he rocked his session and had some great portraits created.

Every senior and every senior session is different. So we took our time wandering around Chippewa Falls taking pictures. These portraits ranged from more serious pictures to some more fun shots, where Jarrod’s smile really lit up the whole image. Jarrod also admitted having a senior session was more fun than he thought it would be. As a senior photographer, that’s always my goal! I want you to have fun during your photography session!

Jarrod says the most enjoyable thing about high school was being able to hang out with his friends. While growing up, he wanted to be a pilot because he thought that would be cool. But now, he is working towards a career in architecture or mechanical engineering. He likes to design things and see them built. He plans to attend the Milwaukee School of Engineering here in Wisconsin in pursuit of that goal.

While his favorite color is black, he wore a few different colors during his portrait session as well as a sharp white button down for a more professional look.

Thank you, Jarrod, for asking me to be your senior portrait photographer. I am sure you’ll build and design great things in your future and I wish you the best of luck at MSOE!

Danielle | North High School Senior Session

It’s no wonder that Danielle is our FEATURED senior for this week’s blog, because she absolutely rocked out her senior session.

Danielle is a senior at North High School. She has a fun, outgoing personality that made it easy for me to capture those huge smiles of hers. She’s got a great sense of humor, too. It made the session enjoyable not only for her but for me as well.

It was a gorgeous day in Chippewa Valley, with perfect weather for our senior session. The beautiful weather allowed us to really let loose and have some fun. After all, who doesn’t love getting ice cream in between heat waves? We went to Olson’s Ice Cream in the Chippewa Falls area, which was the perfect treat on a warm and sunny day.

We got a little bit of everything in this session, from the eclectic downtown landscape to the country roads and fields. Danielle absolutely rocked everything I threw at her!

Last but not least, I couldn’t blog about Danielle’s session without mentioning the fact that we got some pretty awesome images with her and her family’s Hummer. I love it when I get seniors who bring something personal to them and their families!

Danielle, thanks for an amazing session. Your epic, fun personality is the reason I wanted to feature you this week on my blog!

Dillion | Chippewa Valley Senior Portrait Session

Chippewa Valley senior portraits andrew samplawski photography

When I met up with Dillon for his senior portrait session in Chippewa Valley, we put on some serious miles—both by foot and by car—to find some off-the-beaten-path locations. I love it when I get seniors who are willing to have a little adventure, because it always make the session more fun and more personal.

Dillon was pretty shy and quiet, but I was able to learn more about him as the session went on. He’s a big fan of camping and traveling—which was probably why he was willing to trek around with me to find those hidden gems for locations. And he absolutely loves his car, so we were sure to get pictures of him with it, too.

It was also obvious that Dillon’s family means the world to him and that they love and support him in return. They came to the session to help out and ended up laughing and smiling with him. It’s so nice to have family like this at my sessions, because who else can get you to open up like the people who know you and love you best?

And what family is complete without a trusty family pet? Dillon’s dog was a great addition to this session, and you could definitely see the friendship that those two have together. Read more
