Ellie Mae came in with her family for a newborn session and she did such a fantastic job!  Her session was so easy and she slept really well nearly the entire time!

Interview with Hailey Mayer-Gropp - Shawnee Heights Class of 2022 - Topeka's Best Senior Portraits

Hailey was a lot of fun to hang out with and photograph. She had the best smile! We photographed during our senior special where we were giving our assistants an opportunity to practice and shoot sessions. Amanda and Charles did an outstanding job! I kind of got the impression that she was a little reserved when we met her but it didn’t take long for her to start laughing and smiling and before we knew it, we were getting real genuine expressions from her. We did her session in August and it was a little warm but it was truly a beautiful summer afternoon and I think it put us all in a great mood! Here’s a few of our favorites and I’m super happy with the results! Enjoy and here’s to an amazing senior year Hailey! All the best! T.H. Peterson: What do you look forward to most this last year? Hailey: I'm looking forward to my last marching season and actually being able to go to the competitions. T.H. P.: What is your favorite and least favorite class? Hailey: My favorite class is eit

Interview with Ashton Lowe - Mission Valley Class of 2022 - Topeka's Best Senior Portraits

Ashton immediately caught our attention with his awesome naturally curly mullet!  We haven’t ever seen such a cool hairstyle on a senior before in our lives. He had a really great smile, and he was so laidback!  The best part was watching his mom's reaction as we took his picture!  She told us afterwards how unique of a guy her son is and that we captured him perfectly during the session. His session was just perfect. He was so much fun to photograph and it was the most beautiful afternoon. We love this guy and we hope his mullet stays as cool as he is!  Enjoy! T.H. Peterson: When you look back on this school in later years, what will you remember most? Ashton: Being a Viking Spirit leader my senior year was so much fun!  The football, volleyball and basketball student sections are always the best! T.H. P.: What is one outrageous thing you desperately want to try before you die? Ashton: Ride a bull. T.H. P.: If you could move anywhere in the world, where would you move and why? Ash

Interview with Alex Ditch - Washburn Rural Class of 2022 - Topeka's Best Senior Portraits

Image
I met Alex when he was younger and was doing family photos for his family. When I saw him again for his senior session, I was really surprised to see how much he had grown up into a strong young man. I know it's silly to say but I was still picturing him as the young kid. The cool thing is we did his session on his family's property like we did back when we did the family portraits. The land is so beautiful and interesting it makes the perfect backdrop for his session. They have barns, a lake, trees, tall grass, you name it, the perfect rural country setting. And the best part was, it's all him. He's a very genuine and down to earth and it was really easy to photograph him. He's truly personable. I am thrilled with how his session turned out and I'm excited to share it with you today! Thank you for checking it out!! Hope you enjoy the photos and the interview. T.H. Peterson: What classes are you enjoying the most this year and what's your least favorite? Ale
