Getting ready for Senior pictures in Madison WI

“What’s your favorite type of photograph to take?”

I get asked this question a lot.  Truth be told – I like everything.  I love the once in a lifetime energy of wedding photography.  Here are two people in love, surrounded by their families and friends, celebrating one of the biggest moments of their lives.  Happy – Happy – Happy!!  Then there are the kids and babies and pets.  I love the spontaneity of these sessions.  I love that they never worry about things like double chins when they give me a big smile.  They just have fun.

What I love about photographing high school seniors is that they fall somewhere in between kids and weddings.  I love that they have something to say and are willing to try new things.  Senior Portraits are a way of presenting themselves to the world as a young adult.  I love being a part of that.  And while I’m being honest, they can hold a pose and I don’t have to sing “The Wheels On The Bus” … that often.

Here are some faces that will be receiving a diploma and flipping a tassel this year.  I can’t wait to meet the Class of 2014!

Wonder what we’ve been up to lately?  You mean other than moving the studio to a brand new location?  Here’s a few of the faces we’ve had the pleasure of photographing.

There are still a few appointments available during the holidays.  Anyone optimistic enough to schedule their appointment on 12/22/12 will get a free 8×10 added to their portrait package.  🙂

Weddings & Seniors & Calendars -Oh My!!

Sweeney Photography has been busy!!

In the last several months I have been helping local professionals put their best face forward with new publicity portraits.  We have captured wonderful “I do” moments and have photographed some of the most beautiful brides I’ve ever seen!  I’ve helped mark many first birthdays and soon-to-be new additions to a few families.  The Class of 2013 has never been more promising and every senior portrait session as produced amazing portraits of some really great kids .. I mean, young adults.  I walked the grounds at Summerfest so many times that I lost count and photographed some awesome artists from the photo pits.  And let’s not forget the wonderful calendar sessions for the upcoming Thunder Run calendar at Capital City Harley-Davidson.  Yes it has truly been a crazy, busy, fun, exhilarating, exhausting, hilarious, awesome and amazing Spring and Summer!!!

So before the next phase of photography fun begins I think a short vacation is in order.  I have been super fortunate to be invited along to … HAWAII!!!!  I am really excited to be able to spend some time with a wonderful friend and experience a couple of the gorgeous islands for the first time.  Truly a dream come true!

While I’m enjoying some fresh pineapple in paradise the studio will be closed.  But don’t worry – I will be back on September 6th.  Please feel free to email as I will be attempting to check that periodically.  Or you can leave a voice mail and I will return your call when I get back.

Thank you all for helping make Sweeney Photography what it is today!!  I’m looking forward to some time away but I’m really excited about the projects and sessions that will be waiting for me when I come home!!!
