Fargo Senior Photographer Kris Kandel | Alyssa Downtown Fall Session

A few weeks ago Alyssa met me downtown for her senior photos! She loves the autumn colors, golds, reds and deep greens. We had a lot of fun wandering around finding cools spots and lots of beautiful corners!

I actually met Alyssa years ago at a wedding when she was a Jr bridesmaid! How fun is that?!

And then randomly I ran into her at a wedding reception three days after her senior portrait session! So funny to see each other twice in one week at two different photo shoots.

Thanks for a fun senior photo session Alyssa, I hope you love your pictures!!

Fargo Senior Photographer Kris Kandel | Sebastian

Last week’s weather was PERFECT for fall senior photos! I was so happy to meet Sebastian and hear about his passion for online professional gaming and we geeked out over all the cool jobs that the internet has opened up! Sebastian insisted on no-smiling photos, his choice, but I gotta say he pulled off the no-smile epic face perfectly.

Thanks so much for asking me to be your senior photographer, all the best with your gaming and I hope you get your sponsor contract finalized!!

Fargo Senior Photographers Kris Kandel | Moriah

 Last week Moriah’s senior session rained out but our 2nd date was absolutely perfect!! You may feel like you’ve seen her face before, well almost. I photographed Moriah’s sister Ashley last summer! I just love it when I get to know families and reconnect with past clients who come along. 🙂

Aren’t the colors here gorgeous?!

Love the little bit of wind in the hair. Really dramatic lighting and just plain fun!

Outfit change!

Two of my favorite photos:

Laughter is the best!!

One final outfit and we went to the park for some nature photos. The lighting (and subject) was absolutely gorgeous this evening!!

Thank you so much for asking me to be your senior photographer Moriah!! I had a blast working with you and hope you enjoyed it as well!! I’ll be sending you the link to download all the photos later this week. : )

Fargo Senior Photographer Kris Kandel | Ty

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing Ty! We had a great time chatting about his recent trip to Europe, his decisions over what college to go to next year, and Vikings football! I just love how this job lets me get to know people, even if only for a few hours. : )

Some of my favorites:

Ty runs track so we had to have a little fun with that!

I told Ty to pretend he was James Bond in his European Castle. I think he pulled off the look really well:

Then we headed downtown for a few last portraits before the light faded.

Thanks for being awesome Ty! I’ll send you the link to download all your photos soon. 🙂
