Jacob Brandenburg | Wausau West High School A Wausau, WI Senior Session.

September 27, 2014

Today’s senior session is one for the books! (well, our books anyway!!). If you follow our senior portrait work at all, you know that we shoot a LOT of senior girls!! I think it has to do with the fact that I’m a girl (obviously!!) + therefore naturally attract more female clientele!! All that being said, we have only shot two senior guys this year!! I can hardly believe it!! I do have to say, though, that both dudes were super studly + photogenic, so we really lucked out ; )!!! 

Anyway, the senior guy on the blog today was an absolute treat of a session. This guy had amazing ideas for his time with us + was up for anything!! Caleb + I were able to shoot together on this session, + there were so many times when I just handed the camera to Caleb + told him to take it away!! (the two of them had some major guy moments going on + let’s face it–I just don’t have the same insight as to what looks cool or good when it comes to a guy’s perspective!!) There were Jeeps, quarries, burnouts, baseballs, + ski hills. Needless to say, I was pushed (in a VERY good way!!) creatively + we. had. a. BLAST : ) 

So meet, Jacob!! A senior this year at Wausau West Highschool. A lover of cars, exhaust, mechanics, + getting dirty. The first one on the ski hill every winter + one who thrives off the thrill + adventure life has to offer. Confident, easy-going, mature, + smart. So talented in all of his hobbies, but also an impressive young man in the classroom–Jacob is a member of National Honor Society as well as a Confirmation mentor at his church!! We were so impressed by Jacob + really, truly, loved our time with him!! No part of it felt like “working”–rather just a bunch of kids having fun together!! hehe : ) 

Jacob–may you always “keep it real” + stay true to the awesome, well-rounded person that you are!! Thanks for letting us get to know you + we wish you only the very, very best in all that is to come!!! -M+C

This guy loves, I mean loves, his Jeep! So happy to get some sweet shots of him with it!! And how amazing is this location!?!?

Yeah … this was all Caleb. Wish I could take credit for this shot!!!


I wasn’t kidding … this happened!!! (His mom was there, so don’t worry ; ) !!!!)

Love this one : )

These. Are. Favorites!!! Now we just need snow!!

Jacob has been playing baseball his whole life, so these next few were only fitting!!  And I love that we got to the fields right at sunset!!
