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.

What Samantha had to say about her session:

    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!!
