Senior Portraits

Senior portraits by portrait photographer Ryan Klos in Woodstock, IL

2013 Johnsburg High School Senior | Elise Heiser

Senior Portraits | Ryan Klos Photography, Woodstock, IL portrait photographer.

Elise did her senior portrait session during the summer after graduation. Sometimes senior life is so busy that portraits just can’t be managed while in school I guess. So, just before she went off to college we were able to get an awesome senior portrait session in!

We made Elise’s senior portraits on the Woodstock square and at a farm in Bull Valley. We made use of the warm summer sun and snagged some beautiful portraits at both locations. Rarely do I get requests to have props (though I always suggest them), so I was glad that Elise brought her clarinet with to use in portraits in front of the historic Woodstock Opera House, and her track spikes!.

Over all it was a great session with gorgeous results! Enjoy!

2014 McHenry West High School Senior Model | Christina Lim

Senior Portraits | Ryan Klos Photography, Woodstock, IL portrait photographer.

Christina is a 2014 senior at my old high school: McHenry West High School. It’s been a while since I wandered those halls, and lots has changed. For starters, senior portraits have changed a lot since I was in high school. My portraits were nowhere near as nice or fun as the ones I shoot today.

For Christina’s senior portrait session we shot at Moraine Hills State Park where mosquitoes nearly drained us dry, but we made gorgeous portraits despite the little buggers. The light was perfect, and Christina was a lot fun to work with and willing to try anything.

As a senior model, Christina received a free short session to start, and after she refers at least one other senior, she’ll get a second session—a Back Stage Session, which is two hours of shooting at multiple locations in multiple outfits. If you’re a McHenry senior, mention Christina’s name when booking your session and save 10% off your session fee (and help her get her second session)!

2013 Woodstock Senior | Katie Critchfield

Senior Portraits | Ryan Klos Photography, Woodstock, IL portrait photographer.

Meet Katie, a recent transplant from Portland. She and her family moved here nearly a year ago and are still struggling to adjust to the crazy midwest weather. Aren’t we all? There’s no predicting anything here. However, I predicted a killer senior portrait session with the gorgeous weather we lucked out with on her shoot!

Katie’s senior session was a lot of fun. We started on the Woodstock square where we battled fierce winds and plenty of spectators, then ended at a Bull Valley farm where the winds were hardly noticeable. Being a spring shoot, we had lots of blossoming trees and warm colors to work with. Needless to say, Katie rocked this session! See for yourself.

Don’t forget, senior portrait season is in full swing! Now is the time for 2014 grads to schedule your summer senior sessions.

2013 Johnsburg Senior | Elizabeth Fischer

Senior Portraits | Ryan Klos Photography, Woodstock, IL portrait photographer.

Elizabeth’s Super Senior session took place at two locations: a farm in Bull Valley, and at Moraine Hills State Park. While the most colorful leaves of the season had come and gone by the time we shot, we still made the best of the remaining color and warm autumn lighting. Elizabeth was a blast to work with and had a great personality that matched her sunshine smile.

2013 McHenry West Senior | Michaela Langlois

Senior Portraits | Ryan Klos Photography, Woodstock, IL portrait photographer.

Shooting at McHenry Dam in the fall is sure to mean great portraits. With Michaela’s session, we certainly weren’t disappointed! We headed into the woods a bit and shot by the river to make these gorgeous warm autumn portraits. While things were a bit on the wet and sloppy side in some spots, we made it and out without issue. Well, maybe a little splashed pants but that’s nothing to get the right shots! Enjoy these great portraits from her fall session.

2013 McHenry West Senior Model | Dana Henning

Senior Portraits | Ryan Klos Photography, Woodstock, IL portrait photographer.

Dana attends the same high school I did, though I was there almost 15 years prior. She rocked her session way better than I would have back in the day, that’s for sure. Senior portraits have come a long way since I attended. At any rate, Dana’s session was absolutely awesome—brilliant fall colors, perfect temperature and soft warm light. Add a beautiful model like Dana and how can you go wrong?

We shot at Moraine Hills State Park at the peak of the fall colors and made some outstanding portraits! Dana is mom model at McHenry West and has already sent her first referral to me. That means she’s got a 2-hour Super Senior session coming up in the spring. Can’t wait!

Attention McHenry West and East seniors: mention Dana’s name when booking your session and take 10% off your 2013 senior portrait session!

Schedule your session now! (Senior sessions are limited.)
