One of the really fun parts of my job each year, is shooting and designing the flags for the Fisher senior athletes. I get so excited about another opportunity to have fun and be creative. And it feels really awesome, seeing them hanging above the field or in the gym for everyone to see. Here are the 2015 Fisher Senior Football Players!
There is no I in Team. The team wins or loses. Through my lens I see all. Moments where it all works. Moments to remember. Moments to be proud of. To see more of this game be sure to check out my Facebook!
A few images from the Fisher High School Varsity Football game last Friday night!!!
Gilvie is a 2014 Fisher High School Senior. I am impressed that he took the time to chose locations around Fisher that mean something important to him. Impressed because he took the time, and impressed by the locations he chose. He may drive his mom a little crazy, but really he’s a pretty good guy!
Senior Hans Carmien signs letter of intent to play football at SIU. We have had the pleasure of photographing Hans in various sports throughout his high school career and wish him the best of luck as a Saluki!

Here is a little video that was put together from last Friday’s game against Tremont.
Senior shoot in January….OUTDOORS! We so totally lucked out with the weather yesterday! Kristian brought lots of great prop stuff, clothes and a totally awesome attitude! We walked around downtown Fisher, kicked back on a “beach”, and rocked some very cool photos in the studio!! But don’t just take my word for it, take a look below and tell me what you think!
Boyd’s senior portrait shoot was alot of fun in spite of the weather and the late date. We were in the woods where the wind was blocked and it was quite a bit warmer than the shoot the night before, which was a blessing. Boyd has gorgeous hair and the colors of the autumn woods really complimented his coloring. He smiled alot, which was great. He seemed to be having a good time. We shot a couple of looks in the studio, and then decided to play a bit with a football shot. I think it turned out pretty cool!
Mike was another senior that got a really cold, windy day for his senior portrait shoot. He was game though and toughed it out even though I think his teeth were chattering! Luckily the second half of his shoot was in the studio with his puppy, Mia. Mike wasn’t mr. smiley, but I like the images we got and I hope he does too.
Congrats to the Fisher Football Team and especially the seniors for making it to playoffs!
Created by yours truly and featuring photos of your favorite Senior Fall Sports Athletes! They will be available from the Fisher Sports Boosters beginning on Friday!
Last night’s 2012 senior portrait was Carson. Carson came to the shoot with several really good ideas and a willingness to give any of my crazy ones a try. Carson is a three season, multisport athlete, but he is also a bit of a ham and chose to portray his athletic life in a less than serious, but accurate way. I think anyone who has school and sports is constantly trying to juggle everything! Then we got to shooting his football shots and he got down to business and intense, just look at those eyes! After the sports, we were off to the lake where we shot lots of images in and around. This one with the sky reflected in the water is probably one of my favs from the shoot. I love reflections especially when you get to do something really cool with them. Last but not least, we went to a favorite spot with a campfire. The sunset last night was amazing and was a perfect background!
This 2012 senior gets bonus points for effort. Not only was his senior portrait sitting on a hot July day, but he had just come from football practice. Parker doesn’t let any grass grow under his feet participating in multiple sports both during the school year AND during the summer. He wanted to find a way, in a single shot, to convey his passion for football, basketball and baseball. I think we managed it well. He was also very much about nature and outdoors, so we utilized an old bridge with lots of wonderful mature shade trees, and also the new nature preserve just south of Fisher. The meadows there were amazing,( but the mosquitos were vicious). He’s got a great smile (even if his mom had to ham it up to get him to laugh!) and lots of enthusiasm!
As you may have noticed, we do a few high school senior portraits here! As the end of summer looms, I start getting lots of calls wanting to know more about our senior portraits. So I am about to embark on a shameless plug for my studio and why you should bring your senior here!( ‘Cause its my blog and all!)
I am a one woman studio, I shoot on Monday and Wednesday in the late afternoon and early evening. I then schedule ordering sessions on Tuesday and Thursday. Yes, if you had your pictures done with me on Monday or Wednesday, I CAN have them ready the following day. You just have to tell me that is what you want to do! On days that I am not shooting or meeting with clients, I am shooting sports action for Fisher High School and area papers.
The ordering session is when you will see your images for the first time, projected bigger than life on our studio wall! I do expect you to place your order at this time, and half of the order total is required as a deposit with the balance due when everything is picked up! My LTPSENIOR Crew has coupon cards good for $$ off.
One very unique thing about my studio is that we don’t limit your poses. Often you will see packages that will say ” so many 5×7’s and 8x 10’s from 3 poses”. At Laura Trovillion Photography when we state” XX number of gift prints in a package,” every single one can be different.
This year we are offering custom wall prints framed, matted and framed, gallery wrapped canvas and on metal. If you haven’t seen these, you need to stop in and lay your eyes on these awesome options as well as our new wallet tins, and pursbooks!
Which brings me to our ever popular books. There are two book options: first is our Storybook. Its called a storybook, because it tells the WHOLE STORY of your senior shoot. It is a custom hardbound book, with layflat UV coated pages and unique layouts featuring multiple images per spread. Storybooks are available as an 8×8 or new 10 x 10 size. Can you say WOW? The second is our sessionbook – its a custom hardbound offset press book. The covers are custom designed and each page has one image in a fine art format. The session book is offered in the traditional 8×8 size and also our new 10 x 10 size.
I will contact you about a week before your senior portrait sitting to discuss what you want, what your parents want, where you want to go and how we are going to make this all happen. We make a plan. Plans are good. If we don’t have a plan before your sitting, we will end up spending a chunk of your sitting…making a plan. I am a pretty creative person and we have done some pretty wild things, but I have to have a starting point and an idea of what you want, and without those, we are just spitting into the wind….and that’s not fun for anybody!
As far as the sittings go, I am pretty much game for anything short of jumping out of a plane. I have shot all over Central Illinois and have found some really, really cool places to shoot. And I am constantly on the lookout for the next awesome idea/shooting venue!
And that my friends is my shameless plug for Laura Trovillion Photography Senior Portraits! We currently have a few openings still available in September, so give me a call at 217-239-1658. We will begin booking family sessions for holiday cards and gifts on October 3!
Stay tuned right here for my latest senior….Parker Perrero!
Its funny sometimes how life travels in circles. I find myself circling back in my photography to a place where my photos tell a story. Not an intricate full on tale, but a moment captured that tells you more about the person than just that they are beautiful. I tweaked this concept with my Class of 2012 Crew. We got a little crazy with some of them, but I wanted to really put an exclamation point to each story. Senior Pictures are such an amazing milestone in the lives of our kids and I feel that their stories should be told!
So, if you have a Class of 2012 Senior who wants more from his or her senior pictures, give us a call at 217-239-1658. We are currently booking for late July and August !
Nick is a 2011 senior, in Virginia. Fortunately for me, he has alot of family here in Fisher IL and when the family made plans to spend part of their spring break here, they contacted me about shooting his senior pictures!He is one of those people who has a great serious face, the kind that is intense without looking mad. He does also have a great smile that his mom kept reminding him about. We lucked out in that the weather was merely drizzling instead of the predicted downpour and we could go out and about, shooting on location. We finished up in the studio, showing off his football jersey and the muscles that go with it!
