Today’s featured senior session comes to you from Photography by Kelly Klatt, located in Buffalo, Minnesota!
“Every year in the late fall/early spring I do a *bonus* group shoot for my senior models. They’ve already done the main group shoot + their individual sessions at this point. It’s just something fun for them and for me! I like to create a little buzz during the slow time, so a shoot like this works perfectly!
When I envisioned this shoot, I saw the girls at a campground sitting around a campfire…but for the life of me…I couldn’t find a decent campsite that was A) nearby and B) somewhat attractive….so I convinced my husband to dig a fire pit in our backyard…we hauled a few tents down from the rafters (this lady doesn’t do sleeping on the floor anymore), and boom, you’ve got a homemade campground. You know…I do have a pool in the back…I wonder if I could start charging this summer…hmmmm. #notetoself #klattcampground #freewifi #nopublicshowers
We shot this on November 9th…which was a cold and dreary day. That night we got almost 12 inches of snow~I’m SO happy we were able to do this before it hit!”
Gear: Nikon D700
Nikon 24-70 2.8
Sigma Art Lens 50mm 1.4
Nikon 85 1.4
Inspiration: “I had three ‘rough’ ideas in my head…I went to my models and had them vote…the camping theme was almost unanimous!”
What fun! I bet you all had a blast! I love all of the cozy looks:) The first shot is my fave! Thanks so much for sharing with us!

“I’ve owned my own business for over 6 years, and worked for another studio before that…I have a studio attached to my home out in the country…it’s small-ish (950q feet), but it’s perfect for me!I have 2 part time employees that are amazing…Sarah does all of my in person sales…and Amie tackles a lot of my editing during the busy season. It’s made the balance between work/home so nice! I’m married to my high school sweetheart, and we have 3 kids (6,9,12), who keep me employed as their personal chauffeur. All in all…this photography gig is a pretty sweet deal!
