Harley and Seth's Double-Trouble Sessions | NP Design and Photography Studio

This summer we had the pleasure of working with the Leavens family not once, but twice! Harley and Seth are both so talented and a blast to photograph. They also had the opportunity to model for NPDP at a photography convention in Madison, while Nate taught a class to other photographers from around the midwest this fall. Such fun! And both of their albums turned out incredible. Surf through some of their favorite images and album spreads below, as they talk about their experience with NPDP.

"My favorite part was the dance pictures. (Obviously, they take up half of my album) :)" -Harley

Another spread from Harley's Album

"Nate did an awesome job making things FUN! The rest of the team did amazing work on my book." -Harley

"I had a blast taking all of my pictures. Also learning some new jokes along the way!!" -Seth

"It was a great experience and it all turned out amazing. I love the pictures! Thank you so much!" -Seth



"We chose the block wall art - one for each - they captured the kids perfectly! We also chose a piece that was of both of them together on the dock, hanging out and chitchatting, brother and sister. Absolute treasures!" - Harley and Seth's mom, Tiffany

Madeline's Marvel-tastic Session | NP Design and Photography Studio

"I'm a huge nerd, so when I brought out all of my nerd stuff (and there was a lot), it was super fun and Nate (fellow nerd) got excited with my superhero/Marvel stuff, which was fun to see."

Madeline's Album Spreads

"I absolutely love my pictures and I have gotten so many compliments on them. I like how people can see who I am just by looking at my pictures."

"I really enjoyed working with NPDP and I am so impressed with Nate's work. I would definitely come back again! Plus, everyone at NPDP is super nice and fun." :)

Madeline's Magical Session | NP Design and Photography Studio

"Nate captured my love of DISNEY with all my Disney clothes, movies, etc. It was so fun to be goofy with that stuff. My favorite part was listening to Disney music the entire time and guessing the songs before everyone else." :)

"I loved my experience! The day of my pictures was so much fun and I love how everything turned out! I feel like my pictures are so unique and really represent who I am which is exactly what I'd been looking for!"

Madeline's Album Spreads

My favorite product was my album. It is so fun to pull it out and show my family and friends. We also get a lot of comments when guests come to our house and see our wall picture and love that as well.

Kody's Ultimate Senior Sessions: Winter & Spring

For most of the year, we have all of our Senior Models featured in the lobby/gallery right when you walk into the studio. Almost everyone who is here for a meeting, session or whatever, takes a minute to look around and view all the art on the walls. Some admire the creativity and passion in each wall art canvas. Others look for someone they recognize on the wall. Some get inspired and dream about their future session.

In the two and half years that I have been here, never has one individual been remarked upon more than Kody, a Senior Model for the Class of 2015 from New Richmond. For anyone that knew Kody, their first words were often, "Oh, there's Kody!" in delight and admiration. One client even told us, "He is the nicest kid I have ever met."  I think that says a lot about a person; what people say about you when they think no one is listening or paying attention. And not that all of our Senior Models aren't stellar individuals (we love you all!!). Below are a few comments from Kody and his family about their experience at NP Design & Photography, his session and all the fun products he received. Thanks Hermansen Family!!

-Kelly (graphic designer)

"Nate took several experiences and passions and spit-shined them into beautiful pieces of art. Nate was very relaxed and made picture-taking a lot of fun. He wasn't afraid to get dirty or wet to take it to the next level!"

Kody's Wall Art Canvas that hung in the NPDP Gallery

"I love the wall canvas. It is Awesome! For me, it shows Kody's wisdom, strength, passion and maturity. It sums up Kody's high school football story so well."

"Nate does an amazing job! He took Kody's passions and experiences from the last 17 years, put it in a storybook album and wrapped it with a bow! It is a special keepsake that we will treasure forever! Thank you!"
