These girls and their horses

I'm still a little in awe of how well these ladies can train their horses to wrap around a barrel or poles so tightly without tipping them over!  Here's the season so far: https://valocitystudios.shootproof.com/gallery/lyncharena2016

High School Graduation is right around the corner!

Are you freaking out yet?  Graduation is only a couple of months away!  To help plan the day best, make sure you book a location (if not at your house) NOW!  Many venues book already the summer before. Next up is to pick your announcements so everyone you love will be invited! This one should be easy. I've designed numerous template for you to check out and order from.  Remember, the colors of each card can be changed.  Many times, I can also change other simple elements out if you prefer.  This well help you pick a layout and the images you would like to put on the card.  Remember the orientation (vertical or horizontal) of each picture you want and make sure it works with the card you've chosen. ...more on planning your graduation party soon!

New Adventures...

Barrel Races at Lynch Arena

I love taking photos...of just about anything living. I think it's because of the challenge.  Well, I took on a NEW challenge yesterday, barrel races. I've actually never attended an equestrian event before, not even at the fair.

I do know a LITTLE about horses as our neighbors had them when I lived in Steen, MN as a kid. (yes, IN town) I had the opportunity to ride them on occasion as well as a few times at my grandparents' horses on their farm. However, I still know very little about these magnificent creatures.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to head on over to the brand new Lynch Arena near Grand Falls Casino and photograph the event. My colleague, Kris VanDerBrink, informed me of the event as her daughter races at these events in the area. Apparently she knew I would enjoy it, because I SURE DID! This  was just my first attempt as I will be going back soon.

2016 Senior Model Team

The end of the school year is coming upon us.  Kids are finishing up class, spring is finally showing itself, graduations and vacations are being planned.

At the studio, we are also doing some planning.  We are getting ready for our 2016 Seniors.  The models came in and were photographed all in 1 day, which was something new for me! I also went with an Americana theme bringing in a flag & sticking to the patriotic colors.  These girls  from area schools had a blast getting to know each other too. 

Appointments are booking up for the summer, so call now to get your early summer appointment.  This is the best time to get in to avoid the heat,  humidity, as well as other school activities that make your lives so hectic!

These girls will have rep cards available to hand out soon!  Be sure to get one to get a deal on your senior portraits at Valocity Studios!
