Senior Model Hayley's Dance-tastic Session | 2014 Twin Cities Photographer of the Year

After photographing the dance studio she attends for the past couple of years, we've grown to know our awesome Somerset Senior Model, Hayley, through dance picture day, crazy dress rehearsal and the whole Senior Model experience. This year, she even helped us on dance studio picture day with posing, organizing the big groups and giving all the littlest dancers someone to follow that actually knew what they are doing (has anyone ever seen Nate do a plié??!!).

Hayley is quiet at first, but one you get to know her, she shines on stage and off. Below are a few comments from Hayley's mom, Erica and Hayley about her Senior Experience at NPDP, some of the custom-designed products she received and her favorite part of being an #NPDPSENIOR.

From Hayley's mom, Erica: "Nate was able to get Hayley's real smile out which is usually never captured in photos. Hayley loved how Nate let her practice with the camera and how she was able to help create her poses for the dance pictures."

"Our wall art is perfect. We were able to have multiple pictures in one frame which I love. Too hard to pick just one!"

Hayley's Custom Wall Collage

"Hayley's album is unique to Hayley. We love how all the design elements match the pictures."

"Wonderful Experience! At NP Design & Photography you're not just another Senior taking pictures. Everyone at NPDP goes out of their way to get to know everyone who walks through their doors."

Kaylee's Dance Explosion Photo Shoot!

Early this spring, Miss Kaylee arrived in style for her dance photo shoot along with her mom, Michelle. During her three hour session, we all had more fun goofing around with her than most days here at the studio. Equipped with all her recital outfits, hair and makeup from our amazing stylist Shawna, and plenty of attitude, Kaylee brought everyone to life as she danced to her recital songs and taught Nate a thing or two about dance posing. What a blast!

Below are a few comments from Kaylee and Michelle, along with a ton of her favorites images and snapshots of Kaylee seeing her printed Canvas Wall Art Collage for the first time. Enjoy!

From Michelle: "I just looked over at the collage that Nate gave me and the word that came to me was effortless… Sorry if that is cheesy, Kaylee just enjoyed everything about the session and so did I."

Favorite part of the session: "Just how much fun the two of them had. Laughing and being serious when they needed to be."

"NP DESIGN & PHOTOGRAPHY ROCKS. If you want great photos and a great experience then NPDP is the place you need to go. Nate and his staff spend time with you before the photoshoot, during the shoot and after. After the photoshoot you sit and get the great experience of a photo slideshow, and after you wipe away your tears, then you get to go over each picture and Nate is great at being patient and helpful during this time. We've been through this twice and counting.."

"I love love love the art piece that was done. It was my fault I could not pick which photos I wanted - there were NO bad pictures so Nate helped create something for us to show off all the great pictures."
