Parker – Class of 2019 – LinnMar High School

Parker opted for the Urban Session so we headed to downtown Marion. There are a ton of opportunities for amazing images in the alleys, sidewalks and other areas of our small little city.

He brought his A-game!

I get a Danny Zuko from “Grease” vibe here!

And maybe a little James Dean here!

Have a great senior year Parker. And I’m quite confident you will have a fantastic future!

And thanks to everyone who visits this blog!

Spooky Halloween Shoot – October 2018

This is an annual fun photo shoot for TruYou Photography. Every year I somehow manage to convince a victim person to model for these images and we have a little fun with a Halloween-styled shoot.

This year I chose Brooklyn and she was amazing! We went with a “just-look-spooky” theme!

We had so many fantastic ones I had a difficult time choosing which ones to retouch and feature here.

My favorite color is blue so it shows up a lot in my creative work!

I believe I told her to just stare at me in a spooky manner. It worked! I’m scared!

I know, right? She was fantastic!

 

And this one is my favorite!

Don’t worry, she isn’t even close to being this scary. She was so much fun to work with and she and her mom were absolute delights!

Thanks so much to her and her mom for spending an hour with me (and the massive swarms of mosquitoes!) I think it was worth it!

Jacob – Class of 2019 – Senior Pictures

Jake’s mom is my first cousin and it really warms my heart when family hires me for their important images. I know they can choose from many other talented photographers in the area so I truly appreciate it!

Jake is a sweet guy with a wonderfully witty sense of humor. He chose the urban/country combo session (the most popular senior session) so we started with golf images and then finished in downtown Cedar Rapids.

Take a look at some of the favorites of this handsome guy!

They ordered a metal print of this golf montage. Seniors love to have something to showcase their sports interests.

We took the next two shots on a bridge at the golf course. It was perfect!

And here are a few more casual ones taken at the park. Jake was great with his “serious” look but he also flashed a sweet grin to his mom in the second shot below!

If you choose to go with the urban/country combo session you are welcome to choose two days within the same week for your sessions and that’s what Jake did. So we did his urban session a few days later. We were worried about the rain but it held off until the very last five minutes of his session. The heat however, did not hold off.

I’m not sure how he looks so cool and calm in these next images as it was HOT!

Handsome!

I’m pretty sure I said something incredibly hilarious right before this second image was taken. Or I probably tripped. Yep, that’s probably it. As I’m kind of a klutz, this is a common occurrence during photo sessions. Hey – whatever it takes for a laugh or two!


We finished up the session in this alley we found while wandering around. It worked perfectly!

Senior sessions are a chance to show the “True You” and I think we accomplished that with Jake.
