Filed in: business, seniors

This year I kicked off my second year of photography and added senior portraits to my portfolio and I’m SO GLAD I DID. I have been so lucky with such an amazing group of 2020 seniors, I could scream!

Anyway, Molly is one of the gems I was able to photograph and I could list one million things about her that I LOVE but I’ll stick with just the photos, ha! We started her session down at the Millwork District in Dubuque wearing a cute American Eagle top and white jeans. It was so flattering and simple. Her second outfit choice was a floral dress that was perfect against the old garage door we found. I felt like all the outfits Molly picked were charming, comfortable and her. As for the Millwork district, It’s always a crowd favorite with the old brick and fun colors. If you haven’t been down there to eat or sip coffee, you should stop. It’s one of my favorite places in Dubuque.

Our second location was the Swiss Valley Nature Center. This place is AWESOME and so well kept. The Dubuque parks are literally amazing. We have so many great options for “greenery” or “nature” it’s ridiculous (but in a good way!) We spent sunset down at Swiss Valley and it was stunning EXCEPT for the mosquito bites. They were awful that night!

Gotta love the Midwest

Luckily, the bites didn’t stop us. Molly finished the night with an adorable white dress and a chunky, burnt orange sweater. The dress was so lovely with flowers and tall grass. Check out the collection below. Thank you again to Molly McDonald for being so stunning and fun to work with. I can’t wait to see what the future has for you girl!
