Meet this Tosa East graduate, Adam! He was a natural in front of the camera, and was easy going throughout the entire session.

If you give Adam a fishing pole and a body of water, he’s happy. This thoughtful senior loves to fish! He has dreams of building a career around his passion of fishing, and I think that’s fantastic.

Tosa East HS class of 2019 | Cooper Knuth

Meet Cooper Knuth! Even with enduring blustery conditions at the park, we managed to capture his kind, thoughtful personality. We used two locations for his senior portraits, and I love the way each one is completely different - even within each location!

He is off to University Wisconsin-Madison this fall. Good Luck, Cooper, and GO BADGERS!

How cool is the mural behind Cooper? I love finding spots like this for senior portraits. There are so many interesting little spots like this all over the MKE area.

For Cooper’s session, we used the mural, the bridge, and a white brick wall for his backgrounds. All of these locations created a unique senior portrait that shows off his personality.

Which one do you like best?
