Meet Madison, a Class of 2018 graduate from Wheaton High School! I loved all the fun & unique ideas Madison had for her senior session! From incorporating her love for trap shooting (she even made it to the first national championship this year!) to bringing her new puppy along, her whole session was so uniquely her! I hope you're enjoying your summer, & getting excited for your first year of college, girl!

Mariah | Sisseton South Dakota Senior Photographer

Meet Mariah, a Class of 2018 graduate from Sisseton High School! Mariah was SO fun & bubbly to work with! I absolutely LOVED that she incorporated her love of Volleyball into her session. We ever got our feet wet for a couple images in the lake! Mariah also added on a Fall Mini Session to her Senior Experience to add on a unique variety of Fall images, which I love! I hope you're having the best summer, & good luck with college in the fall, girl! I know you'll do amazing things!


Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your senior photos, Mariah!

College hopeful? Where? Yes, probably SDSU
Major: Nursing

What Mariah had to say about her session:

    My senior session experience was everything I have hoped for. I thought it would have been awkward but Ivy made it very comfortable for me to be myself. Ivy takes interest in what you like and what fits you. She doesn't just capture photos to get done. She will make sure you look nice and feel comfortable before she even snaps a photo

    The backgrounds that were chosen to go with my outfits went together perfectly. And the posing, well, let's just say they do feel awkward when you are doing them BUT they do not look awkward at all. The poses actually fit my personality very well. If you are looking for a photographer I would highly recommend choosing Ivy.

What Wendi (Mariah's Mom) had to say about her session:

    I thought Mariah's senior session went very well. The backgrounds went very good with her outfits. I also loved the posing positions that were used. It was her first time doing an actual photo session and you made it comfortable and fun.

 

Here are some of my favorites from Mariah's session:

Samantha | Spearfish South Dakota Senior Photographer

As I get ready for another fun senior season with the Class of 2019, I though now would be a fun time to look back & celebrate the Class of 2018!

Meet Samantha, my first Class of 2018 Senior last year, from Whitewood, South Dakota! Samantha has Wheaton roots, and I was SO excited she wanted to come back to where she grew up to capture her senior photos! I had the BEST time getting to know Samantha, & I'm so glad you laughed at all my terrible jokes 😂 Congratulations on graduating girl, I can't see where life takes you!

Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your senior photos, Samantha!

A bit more about Samantha:

College hopeful? Where?  Black Hills State University

What Samantha had to say about her session:

    My experience was everything I hoped it would be!!  Ivy has an amazing personality that is so easy to connect to!  I felt like she was more focused on the quality of my pictures than the quantity, which was something very important to me!  The locations matched my outfits and my personality to a T!!  And her choices of poses were perfect for me!  

    I felt very comfortable with Ivy throughout my session!  And I feel like she really tries to connect to her clients!! For anyone looking for a senior photographer I would highly recommend Ivy she is fantastic!!

What Anita (Samantha's Mom) had to say about her session:

    I am so glad my daughter had her pictures taken by Ivy. I couldn't be there for pictures but what I have seen so far I love.  Samantha told me she had such a great time with Ivy. Thank you Ivy for taking the time with her to make it special.

Mr. & Mrs. Lewis | Fargo, ND Wedding Photographer

Heidi & Daniel are Married! They shared the most beautiful spring day to exchange vows, and I was so honored to capture their special moments and being a part of their day! 

From the moment I arrived, you could feel the excitement and love Heidi & Daniel's friends and family have for the newlyweds, and especially the love Heidi & Daniel have for each other. Their wedding party was filled with some of the funnest people, and it was such a fun day to be apart of!

Flower are blooming, the grass is green.. and the Class of 2017 is ready to Graduate! 

I can't believe how fast this year has gone by - and I bet all of my seniors feel the same way! I've had such fun time photographing my senior reps all year long, and I'm so sad that it's coming to an end!

I can't wait to see where life takes all of you - you are all so beautiful inside and out! Thanks for the many laughs, and i wish you the best in your futures! Have a safe and fun graduation, and don't forget to capture those memories!
