Omaha Senior Photographer » Omaha Area Senior and Family Photographer

Well, hello! I didn’t do many blog posts this year, so I guess I need to get one in before 2017 comes to a close. To put it simply…2017 has been a good one. As I compiled the pictures for this post, I was reminded of all of the incredible seniors and their families that I was so fortunate to meet this year. Each one holds a special place in my heart and I know I always say this, but I really do have the best clients.

First of all…this year started with a big step. After years of sharing studio spaces with other photographers, I finally took the leap and leased my very own space. It took quite a bit of work to transform it from a computer repair shop into a studio and I’m still not fully done with it, but it’s getting there! This after picture was taken in April, so it looks a little more completed now but I am looking forward to spending some time making it feel more like home this spring.

At the end of May, I got to do my first ever senior destination shoot in Oregon and it was everything I dreamed it would be and more. When Moe’s mom first brought up the idea back in January at our consult, I’m sure I looked calm on the outside, but inside I was screaming like a kid at Christmas. I had always wanted to do a destination shoot and to be able to do one in Oregon was a dream come true. We crammed two amazing shoots into one day…the first one being on the Michael Johnson track on the Nike campus and then to Horsetail Falls for some dreamy waterfall pictures. I loved this area so much and can’t wait to go back someday!

Speaking of destinations…I also did a shoot with Chandler in Colorado this summer. I absolutely love Colorado and it had always been a dream of mine to do a shoot there, so for the class of 2018, I had an incentive that the girl with the most referrals by a certain date would get a free trip to Colorado with a photoshoot. Chandler rocked it with the referrals and won the incentive so her, her mom, and I spent three days in Colorado Springs and it was incredible. Despite almost getting rained out a few times, we did some amazing shoots there …one of which included a brisk early morning hike to do a sunrise shoot. Totally worth it.

In addition to my destination shoots, I had the opportunity to do 54 senior sessions for the class of 2018 this year. I could not do this job without all of you and I want to thank you all so much for choosing me to be your senior photographer! It means more than you’ll ever know.

And last but not least, I found out in November that five of my images were chosen for this year’s Senior Style Guide Hot 100 contest, giving me Icon Status. This is the contest for senior photographers, so to be chosen from over 8,000 images submitted is still unreal to me. I was actually at my studio when I found out and started jumping around and screaming in excitement….so I’m sure the ladies next door at Jazzercise now think I’m a little crazy. 😉

It’s going to be hard to top 2017, but I am looking forward to an even bigger and better 2018!

Much love,

Pam

So I still have a TON of class of 2016 senior sessions to blog, so I’m going to try my best to get caught up! Here are some from my session with the lovely Amber. I had so much fun with her, her mom and her friend at her shoot. It was so hot that day, but Amber still looked flawless. She had her makeup done by Amanda Lee Artistry and the airbrush foundation lasted throughout the whole evening, despite the humidity. Love this girl and love the images we captured!

Before I even met her, I knew there was a pretty good chance that I’d like Aspen because she has the same name as my daughter… and I was right. I just adore her and her family and I love the relationship that we’ve built over the past year. When I heard that she was from Norfolk, I was honored that she wanted to drive two hours to do two separate sessions with me. She wanted to do a summer and fall session, so we did her first session in August and the second in October. Both sessions were so perfect and were full of fun and laughter. I could not think of a better person to get to do two sessions with. She is so beautiful, both inside and out and I’m so thankful to have met her, and her mom and her sister. They are seriously the best family ever and it is so apparent how much they love each other.

Thank you so much for choosing me to be your senior photographer, Aspen!

Here’s what Aspen had to say about her experience…

“Pam is unbelievably talented and I am so grateful that my senior pictures were done by her! From the first day we met to picking up the finished product, she went above and beyond my expectations. She was dedicated to getting great shots and was very open to my personal ideas. I really felt like she captured my personality in all of my photos, and made it a fun experience! She kept my sessions laid back and made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera. The time and effort she puts into making sure her seniors feel beautiful is something not every photographer is willing to do. The two hour road trip from my home to the studio was well worth it! The memories that were made with Pam are ones that will always be remembered. Cannot thank Pam and her love for photography enough!”

I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to meet Megan and her mom. I love it when photo shoots feel like you’re just hanging out with some good friends and that’s exactly how it was with Megan. She is genuine and sweet and her laughter is so contagious. Thank you for choosing me to be your senior photographer, Megan!

I have ALWAYS wanted to do a shoot in the snow, so I was bound and determined to pull it off this year. Snow shoots are not the easiest to put together… First of all, living in Nebraska, you just never know what the weather is going to do, so it’s hard to plan a shoot like this ahead of time. Second, it’s hard to find people who are willing to be photographed in the frigid Nebraska temperatures. Luckily, the stars aligned and everything turned out just as I had hoped. When I pitched the idea to two of my 2016 senior reps, Samantha and Alexandra, I thought they would think I was crazy, but thankfully they were up for it. They both were the best models…and don’t let the sun fool you, it was SO cold that day!
