Here is where we will share with you some great things that have been happening. Not only will we share our lovely weddings and portrait sessions, we will also share some blog posts that are going to make you laugh and hopefully say, "I'm glad I'm not the only one who does that...".

Choosing your Portrait Session Location


The location of your senior portrait session is completely up to you! As you’ll see, most of our clients love showcasing the natural beauty of Rice Lake. For most of our sessions, outdoor, open-air environments (shade preferred) are always our first choice. There are great options all around this area, so even if you’ve never seen us photograph in a specific place before, we’re always up for exploring a new spot!

Think Outside the Box

When it comes to choosing a location, don’t be afraid to think outside the box! We encourage you to brainstorm unique places that you might have special access to that most people don’t. For example, maybe you (or someone you know) have access to an amazing location that would otherwise be off-limits, like a beautiful private cabin or a family farm. Spend a few minutes thinking about it and checking around with people. You’ll be surprised with what you come up with! If something seems out of reach, just remember: you never know until you ask!  In the past, our clients have secured permission to shoot in some pretty incredible places!

If you need some location ideas and inspiration, we have plenty! Check out our Instagram and our Senior Blogs! If there’s a certain session you really love, just let us know which one and we can look at doing some photos at that location if it’s available.

The 3 main categories of locations are: 

  1. Downtown Photos
  2. Field or Trail Photos
  3. Outside the Box Photos
  4. Sports Photos





– A Local Diner
– Fast Food Restaurant
– Candy Shop
– Junk Food Aisle of a Grocery Store  (or maybe a makeup aisle of a department store)
– Arcade
– Coffee Shop
– Playground
– Greenhouse
– Outdoor Pool

– Pumpkin Patch
– The Fair
– Gas Station
– Record Store

The list could go on!


When it comes to sports photos, we can do them at the location you play the sport or do a unique backdrop. Take a look at some of the ideas these seniors had for their sport locations.
