Candace – CLASS OF 2017 – SYCAMORE HIGH SCHOOL – ILLINOIS SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER

I really enjoyed meeting & photographing beautiful Candace, who attends Sycamore High School, IL and will be graduating soon.  She is pursuing a career in nursing, loves animals, and is a very outdoorsy person.  Candace loves crazy adventures, shopping, and spending time with loved ones. Her senior photos have been some of my favorites from the 2017 sessions.  I loved her clothing choices and the fun locations to bring out her bubbly personality.

Have an awesome rest of your senior year Candace!

Laura ~ Class of 2016 ~ Aurora Christian High School ~ Illinois Senior Photographer

This past winter Laura chose to have her senior session in the snow.  It made for a wonderful backdrop (and natural reflector) for the style she was looking for…and the photos turned out awesome! I had so much fun photographing Laura and getting to know her.  She is gorgeous from the inside out…. smart, talented, athletic, and sweet to the core.

Some fun facts about Laura:

“I’m very adventurous! I love to travel and try new things, no matter how scary! I’m cheer captain this year at my school and very excited! I love watching sports, playing sports, participating in any kind of competition as I’m very competitive! I’m also fascinated by health sciences and hope to pursue a career in the medical field someday!”

Her beautiful & archival products: mounted gift prints, DVD slideshow, 11×14 framed art, 8×8 linen fusion book, and more…

Hulthen Family Road Trip

Last summer (July) our family of six packed-up into a rented Yukon XL and headed west.

Our memorable vacation took 19 days, we went through 12 states, and traveled 5,284 miles.

David drove the entire time (He wanted to).  =)  We are still talking about this amazing trip together.  We hope to venture out west again soon…There are still many National Parks to explore!

(the majority of photos were taken on my mirror-less FujiFilm camera). The amazing Grand Canyon

Las Vegas. View from our fancy hotel (the Mirage)

Hoover Dam & Hollywood

Venice BeachSanta Monica.  My fave!Elephant seals while driving along Highway 1 (Big Sur). I couldn’t get enough of them!San FransiscoYosemite (holding a photo of when I was younger)We saw wild bear!A little Ansel Adams inspiration.  =)
Half Dome. Amazing. Climbed when I was in High School.  Wonder if I’ll ever do it again. One of my favorite places of all time is Yosemite.
Nevada. Extraterritorial Hwy.  A bit creepy.  Hundreds of miles of open space.
