Andrew Nelson • Iron Mountain High School • Class of 2023

When you get a future US Air Force enlistee, what do you do for Senior Portraits? Pull some strings and go to the airport and get photos on the runway and with some planes. Our Mountaineer Football player was all smiles during the day. You want epic? This session was it!

Evan Haferkorn • Iron Mountain High School • Class of 2023

Our star baseball and state qualifier in wrestling braved the winds during his senior portraits. Evan made everything super easy and we had lots of fun chatting. Watch out for him on the wrestling mats. Looking to bring home a title this year. #

Jack Bartolac • Kingsford High School • Class of 2023

We love making our athletes shine! Our football beast, Jack, loved his Senior football banner (check it out on game day) and got even more crazy cool senior photos recently. This young man is a terror on the turf, but his easy going personality made his session fly. Good luck on game day and stay healthy, Jack!

Joshua Wysocki • Goodman High School • Class of 2023

Bison! Trucks! Farm! Yes, this was Joshua's senior portrait session at his folks place...the Armstrong Creek Bison Farm. We completely brought out the farm kid in Joahua and showed off his passions. Too cool. And, can I say it again....BISON!!!

Autumn Sleik • Kingsford High School • Class of 2023

TWIN DAY! Autumn, the other half of our twin siblings session, had to wait for her turn at photos. However, the wait was totally worth it. Showing off her personality made the long day finish on a high note. Everyone loved the locations, outfits and scenes for her session.

Brett Ramme • Iron Mountain High School • Class of 2023

Another multi-sport athlete graced our studio. Brett, our Mountaineer soccer, basketball & golf superstar was so fun to photograph. Watching him grow up and excel in everything he does is so amazing. I can't believe it is already senior year. We are just waiting on soccer uniforms to grab a few photos on the pitch.

Tyler Neuens • Norway High School • Class of 2023

Another multi-sport athlete coming in for some creative senior portraits. I've been photographing Tyler since his 6-7 year old soccer photos. Now, this young lad is a beast on the football field, terror on the hardcourt, and lightning on the track. Lots of smiles and reminiscing with him and his mom.

Allie Person • Iron Mountain High School • Class of 2023

Mountaineer Cheerleader, Allie, was sooo much fun on her Senior Session. Laughing, smiling and a beautiful day made her session fly by. A nature lover, we got to incorporate her love of butterflies into her session.

Ryan Gaucher • Kingsford High School • Class of 2023

Another fun day of Senior Portraits with Gaucher. Our Flivver Drum Major braved the heat in his uniform and we were able to wrap up at the family property on the Menominee River. Great start to finish!

Kyla Olson • Iron Mountain High School • Class of 2023

Our Mountaineer Softball star, Kyla, was all smiles during her session. Breaking out the softball gear, grabbing the family pets, and finding some beautiful locations made her session a dream. Can't wait until softball season starts!

Riley Gauthier • Iron Mountain High School • Class of 2023

It was 10 years ago when we did Riley's sister. Boy does time fly. He is all grown up and anchoring the Mountaineer Football line. Love seeing these kids grow up and, ultimately, take their Senior Portraits. Good luck Riley!

Colin Petschar • Iron Mountain High School • Class of 2023

Our IMHS Soccer Star, Colin, had a blast on his Senior Session. Waiting until new uniforms are in, we got to hit many different locations with his other outfits. Always smiling, we can't wait to see him on the pitch this fall.

Blake Dishaw • Norway High School • Class of 2023

Another multi sport athlete who didn't want to look ordinary, but extraordinary, in his senior portraits. Blake is a great young man, as well as a stellar student and athlete. Good luck, play hard, and stay healthy!

Marcella Martonen • Kingsford High School • Class of 2023

Our super soccer star, Marcella, was the last of the Martonens to come through for Senior Portraits. What a way to finish the family off! Wow! She was amazing in the heat and her smile made the session fly by!

Carson McLean • Iron Mountain High School • Class of 2023

Devon Basirico • Forest Park High School • Class of 2023

A few days ago we had our Forest Park football star and devoted Lions fan, Devon, come for Senior Portraits. Hitting the locations, talking football and just enjoying a gorgeous summer day made his session FLY by!

Austen Guldswog • Iron Mountain High School • Class of 2023

Multi sport Senior Austen came in with fire in his eyes. Showing off his passions of autos, sleds (no, it wasn't snowing...just some creative magic) and football, we hit all of the highlights. Great to see him fired up about Senior Year.

Samantha was amazing throughout her session. Bringing her hunting gear and attire along, along with a superb variety of clothing, made this senior session just fly by.
