Bailey is a country girl so we headed to Cave Creek, AZ to get that look for her senior session. We encountered a bit of rain right in the middle of the shoot but that… More
I got the chance to go back to the location where I had the rep shoot for 2017! I was so excited when Noelle said she liked it! This place is so cool to me. I call it a cactus graveyard! It is just undeveloped open land where cactus were dumped and left. Some are rotting and falling over but I just love the images that come from this location!
Noelle had a whole day starting with hair and makeup with Tiffany, then her shoot and wrapped up the day with a drive to Tucson to check out U of A! She was super fun to photograph and looked absolutely beautiful! Good luck making your final college decision, Noelle! I hope you had a blast with your senior photo session!!
Clay is Derek’s best friend. Buddy’s since they were little. I’m sure the pressure of senior photos wasn’t so bad since they were together at the shoot! They continued to make fun of each other throughout! Clay has been a pitcher for his baseball team all 4 years of high school! It was so exciting to capture some awesome images of him on his field! A shoutout to coach for allowing us this opportunity!
Clay will be attending New Mexico Military Institute in the fall. Good luck in your future, Clay! I am glad I had the chance to meet you and capture your senior photos!
I sound like a broken record, but this rain in Arizona will not stop!! I have realized that I now have a love/hate relationship with good ‘ole mother nature! I am an outdoor photographer and the rain is not my friend. However, it has done glorious things to our beautiful desert! The desert is as green as ever and so lush and overgrown. Which makes for some gorgeous backdrops. I really can’t complain!
With that being said, this particular day was raining all morning! Luckily, the clouds parted just in time for the shoot! I couldn’t have been more happy with the lighting I had and how the skies were a beautiful blue with gorgeous clouds. Yes, there were some puddles, but that was definitely something we could work around!
I had 2 seniors whose moms booked their shoots for the same day. These two guys have been friends since they were little, have gone to different high schools and will be heading off to two out of state schools. They are both playing baseball and I was extremely excited to have the ability to capture some awesome images on each of their fields!
Derek is an outfielder and will be playing for his college! I have known his mom for many years and was honored to capture his senior photos. It is so great when you can get them in their element. You can see them relax the second they step on that field. We had no shortage of ideas to work with! Shoutout to coach for letting us use the field!!
If I could post hundreds of images from this shoot, I would! Ali, one of my senior reps wanted beautiful color in her session from her outfits to her location! The location we found was perfect! The amount of rain we have had lately has just made the desert so lush and green! Ok, fine, I’ll take the rain if this is what I get from it!
Ali is a dancer and supremely photogenic so posing for her was not an issue! Her style is beyond cute and it was so much fun showing it off! When I had her do her jump, I went absolutely nuts! The jump, the hair, the sun…HEAVEN!
We had just enough overcast to be able to utilize every angle and I am just in love, as usual, with these images!
A dear friend of mine was hiking in this area and thought, “Tammy would love this!” So she called me and had me check it out! She was right and so thoughtful to take the time to show me and think of me! This location is so lush in desert plants and is versatile to give the senior different looks all in one!
After meeting Ashlyn at Splitt Enzz Salon to have hair and makeup done by Tiffany Lobdell, I knew it would be a perfect fit! Ashlyn was a stunner on Saturday and the first senior I have had with this new location! Gorgeous beauty all the way around! Ashlyn was a little nervous at first but fell into a rhythm with her posing and became a natural! I love when my senior clients book with Tiffany! She gives them the natural look they want and just enough “POP” for the camera! Her hair and makeup was on point! She is such a sweetheart and was open to all the ideas! I am in love with these images! I will definitely be using this location again and again!
I was SO excited to be outside on Sunday! Finally some Arizona 70 degree weather! It was beautiful! And so was Beth! She had found a great location full of so much variety! The lighting was amazing! Beth is finishing up her final weeks on her high school cheer team and will be powering up to tryout for GCU cheer where she will be attending this fall! Much luck to you Beth! She had so much fun during her shoot and her style was so fun! Her hair was done by the ever talented Kaycee! AKA my daughter! LOL Enjoy her sneak peek!
Christa’s senior session was super fun and the best weather day out of the entire weekend. Christa started at Tiffany’s for gorgeous hair and makeup and then headed out to Scottsdale. She brought balloons and they were actually harder than it looked in pictures to keep them all steady in the air! So we improvised! Which I thought turned out pretty awesome!! I love the laughter I got out of Christa! It was the moments just after the fake laugh that I told her to do, that turned into the real one and just came out beautiful!!
