Flora was great. I think she got my jokes and i like that. and she was funny too…but like quiet funny or something. Flora was maybe more excited to go running than have her senior photos taken but she really stepped it up!
What high school do you go to? Madison West High School
favorite memory from your senior year? Getting the news that she’d been accepted early decision to the college she wants to attend
what are you doing next year? Attending Haverford College, outside Philadelphia
do you have a favorite memory from the photo day? (The mom is asking Flora these questions, i imagine they are sitting in the kitchen with Glee on in the background.) “During the photo shoot, she remembers some funny things you said– that she looked like an amputee (because she kept putting her arm behind her back), but then you said that amputees are in right now! I don’t know if you’ll want to include these comments on your website, but I think both helped Flora laugh and relax! So maybe you’ll want to generalize and say she remembers some weird and hilarious humor during the photo taking!”
Tina moved to Charlette, North Carolina. She works at the Adams Outdoor billboard company as a art director. that’s super fancy. She got to have a billboard in her town welcoming her…as you can see below. I’m super jealous cause maybe it’s a dream of mine to get on a billboard and i don’t see that happening if tina doesn’t live here. I could’ve been so many people on a billboard: maybe a doctor’s assistant or like a watering a plant, a customer eating a hamburger! really, i’m so versatile. oh, right, this isn’t about me, it’s about tina.
So it’s sad she moved cause we had some good times together. I started looking for photos to go along with this billboard and i found about 46 photos to put up. But i thought that might be weird…this already is a little weird. but there are so many fun times. we did this Door Country trip and then that awesome night at the woody annes bar and there were so many halloween photos that didn’t make it up. it’s her favorite holiday. i should interview her for this blog posting!
Tina loves North Carolina and that’s good but i was expecting her to hate and move back maybe. she’s into okra and trying to say, “ya’ all” now.
I took the billboard photo, that’s fun. her worker friend Curtis designed it. go team!
I photographed Jared last summer. I also did his sister’s senior photos the year before. It was nice to see the Valyo family from Dodgeville again! The mom Valyo is probably the nicest mom in the history of the world. I was thinking there should probably be a facebook fan page for her. there might be one already. We mostly stayed on the eastside of Madison having some fun photo adventures.
Some questions to Jared:
what high do you go to? I go to Dodgeville High School
favorite memory from your senior year? our band trip down to Florida to play at Disney
what are you doing next year? I am going to the University of Minnesota in the Twin Cities to study mathematics and economics
do you have a favorite memory from the photo day? it was funny when I took pictures under the beehive without even realizing it was up there!
note from me about the beehive: he did not get stung but I do think I made him stay up there to get a few more shots.
It’s starting to be senior photo time! I love shooting senior photos, it’s like going on a little afternoon/morning adventure. I’m going to start putting up some of my senior photo sessions from 2008-2009. I’ve sent out a couple questions to the seniors to see what going on with them.
Here is Julie, she graduated in 2008. We had a great time. When I started shooting seniors I thought it was going to be really awkward but they are real people and we’ve had some good/real conversations. Oh, and if a parent shows up I’m so surprised how much I like the moms! I don’t remember liking my friends parents this much in high school.
What HS did you go to? I went to Mineral Point High
Favorite part of your senior year? My favorite part of senior year was just how close my grade was, we could all hang out and it not be awkward at all…we would gather at one friends house and just do some hilarious things or we’d drive around and “terrorize” the town is what we called it. I was able to walk around/leave the school and not get caught. I loved our Senior Camp Out as well.
What are you doing now? I am currently at UW Milwaukee! Majoring in Journalism..I want to own a restaurant as well-aah.
What was your favorite senior photo or memory from the day? My favorite photo was the sepia tinted water shot, I used it on my invites. Everyone loved it! I liked all of them though, so it was extremely hard to choose. I guess, now that I think about it, I have a few favorites haha! I was so nervous the day of the pictures, but I just kept telling you stories so it turned out fine!
Jennyface & I went to Monroe on vaca last week. I love to go on Wisconsin holidays. Mostly we went to eat lunch at my favorite- Baumgartners! They love cheese in Monroe & so do I. I had a cup of chili & a cheese sandwhich. From there we hit the hot spots in Monroe: the brewing company, swiss colony outlet stores, and maybe a couple more beers around town. Later in the afternoon we spent $11.50 on cheese curds. They were good but not $11.50 good. These were not from Baumgartners.
maybe skip work tomorrow!
I shot brett newski this weekend for the isthmus. the story is about how he is going to start booking shows for the Pub on state st. I think. I got there a little early and found some fun locations within a blocks radius. The photos in front of the actual Pub sign were a total bust. I hope they don’t use those in the paper.
brett does some fun things in life I learned. like he is in a famous band. i decided he’s famous. he might not be. he goes to the gym on sunday afternoons and started his own graphic design business. that makes him an entrepreneur! to stalk brett start here:
I’ve decided i”m gong to try to write more on the blog, words are not my strongest…strongest whatever. do people want to hear words? maybe. you always skip over them right?
