SARA // Senior Model Feature! // Lincoln Nebraska Senior Photographer

February 6, 2018

My Nebraska senior models are so incredible and I’m so excited to have a Senior Model Feature series on my blog! This series spotlights some of my Nebraska senior models from the Class of 2018, so you can see all the different looks we do throughout the year. Each model shoot that I plan has a totally different look/theme to it! Sara was able to make it to most of my model shoots, hooray! (My models aren’t *required* to attend any of the model shoots – in fact, all of my senior models are so busy with dance/cheer/travel/sports that I just seriously don’t know how they do it all!) Read on to hear how Sara planned her senior shoot locations & outfits, her thoughts about the NMP Senior Model experience, and more!

“To anyone considering being an NMP model I highly recommend it. Being an NMP model introduced me to some styles out of my comfort zone that I would have never would have tried without this experience, some sweet new friends, and pictures that I will treasure forever.”

Nebraska Senior – Sara’s Senior Shoot

“I was really worried at first about finding outfits for my seniors. I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted, however I knew I wanted a little bit of everything. My favorite outfit was my striped black and white romper. When my mom and I found it in the store we immediately fell in love with It and knew it was the one. I chose this outfit because it was simple but yet glamorous, which basically describes my style.”

“For my hair and makeup, I️ had Nikki’s stylists do it for me! I am terrible with hair, so having a stylist to do that for me was crucial. As for makeup, I enjoy doing it…however I loved having someone style me for my senior shoot. My makeup artist was able to help me decide what eye and lip colors would go best with my outfit choices.”

“I knew that I wanted to take dance pictures because that was something that has been important to me my whole life. For those photos I chose to wear an old dance skirt and a purple shirt that I thought went well with I️t, along with my pointe shoes.  The the colors and simplicity of the outfit looked perfect next to the brick walls.”senior dance photography lincoln nebraska senior photographer downtown lincoln nebraska dance photos dance photography senior dance photography ballet photography lincoln nebraska senior photographer dance photography lincoln nebraska senior photographer ballet senior dance

“I feel that my senior shoot captured the two sides of my personality: girly and glamorous vs. simple and outdoorsy. The pictures down town in my high heels and dressy romper really showed off my glamorous side…while the pictures on the gravel and in the fields showed my outdoorsy side.”nature senior photos lincoln nebraska senior photography outdoors natural light nature senior photos lincoln nebraska senior photography outdoors natural light field of flowers lincoln nebraska senior photographernature senior photos lincoln nebraska senior photography outdoors natural light field of flowers lincoln nebraska senior photographer senior model

“When thinking about my locations I knew I wanted something near flowers. The first field that we chose went perfect with the blue shirt I wore. The white colored flowers in the background complemented the outfit. The second field with the purple and yellow flowers matched with the purple dress that I wore.”nature senior photos lincoln nebraska senior photography outdoors natural light field of flowers lincoln nebraska senior photographer senior modellincoln nebraska senior photographer senior model program senior photos lincoln nebraska

Old Hollywood Glam Shoot – Nebraska City

“My favorite shoot was the Old Hollywood Glam shoot in Nebraska City. I’m really interested in old styles, and I love seeing old houses and such. So taking a trip to the Morton Mansion was really exciting for me, as well as the super cool old fashioned hair and clothing. It was also a fun bonding time for us models spending the whole day together and getting some Raising Canes together for dinner.” 🙂

“My friends would say that the best thing about me is my goofy and loving personality. They all know I’m weird and that I’m not afraid to admit it. My friends love being around me because I️ love to make them laugh, and I’m not worried about what anyone else thinks of me.”
