A North Dakota Senior Session

Today’s featured senior session comes to you from Stacy Kennedy Photography, located in Fargo, ND!

Here is what Stacy had to say!

Please describe session for us:

“This session took place in beautiful downtown Fargo, ND. We utilized a historical building to give her images some character and have room for her dance moves. We started the session with natural light and as the sun set, moved into our studio light shots. We ended the session with some dance moves to showcase Ashtyn’s talent.”

Tell us about the gear used:

“Being able to shoot with natural light and studio light is a must in most of my sessions. I like to be able to shoot anytime of the day and still get great images. Below is a list of what all is used during this session:”

Nikon D610
24-70 mm 2.8
80-200 mm 2.8
50 mm 1.8
Nikon SB910 Flashes
Alien Bee 1600
54″ Umbrella
Reflector

What inspired this session?

“Ashtyn is graduating high school and as most, wanted her senior session to portray her. Ashtyn is a bold young lady that is full of personality. She wanted to show all sides of who she is. Everything from her love of glamour & Marilyn Monroe, to her over flowing love for her puppy, and the passion she has for cheer and dance. The inspiring aspect of Ashtyn’s session is that we had to postpone her session for a specific reason. You see, Ashtyn has gone through extensive surgery to her jaw to create the profile she has today. It wasn’t an easy time for this lovely girl, but she persevered and finally was able to get her jaw in line and all her braces removed. You can truly see the confidence Ashtyn has now that she feels comfortable laughing, smiling, and living life as a beautiful teenage girl.”

Hair & Makeup Stylist:

“I work with one of the best hair & makeup artists in our area. Ashley Trappen works with me on majority of my sessions and I am so thankful for all she does. She really knows how to bring out the best features in all my clients and once they leave her chair, you can see the confidence lift in all of them.”
