Claire Hookstra // High School Senior Photo Session // Wymore, NE Photography

Claire was such a joy to photograph! Her confidence was through the roof and her long, gorgeous hair made for the perfect accessory to play with. Claire was one of the first people I met when we moved to Wymore last year. My mother-in-law chatted her up while she was life-guarding at the local pool and told me I just HAD to meet her! She is so kind and very involved in the community, so I was really excited when her mom reached out and told me she wanted me to take her Senior Portraits!

We started off in my friend’s little field of wildflowers on their farm. I’m a sucker for the summer wildflowers! I try to shoot in them as much as possible because they never seem to last very long. Claire wore the cutest purple top that coordinated well with some of the blossoms there!


After that, we went downtown to the main street in Wymore. This was probably my favorite part of the session because I’ve been really wanting to shoot down there! I actually took my five year old down there for some birthday pictures back in May, but… He acted like a five year old and goofed off the entire time. Claire was much more photogenic! ;)


Last but not least we stopped out at Big Indian lake and found a perfect patch of lilies growing there. Then this chick hopped right in the lake! I think that was the most fun part of the session. Sure did feel good after sweating our butts off for an hour and a half haha. I loved that she was so willing to try all of my crazy ideas (including a hair flip fail and getting literally alllll the way in the water!).


There’s still a little time to book a summer session if you’re looking for fun Senior Portraits in the wildflowers or the water! I would love to create some stunning images for you.
