Harlee

2w1w4w8w5w6w7wThis senior session tugged at the heart strings. I’ve known Harlee for many years but I have known her mom and dad since High School! I shot Harlee’s 8th grade promotion photos as well and I can’t believe how fast this last 4 years has gone! Harlee is graduating from Mountain Ridge which is the same high school her parents and I attended. We were actually the first graduating class! So you can imagine how surreal this is for us all. I swear we were just there yesterday!

Harlee is an amazing kid!! She has a huge personality that I love!! She is beautiful inside and out! She loved playing basketball in high school (when she wasn’t injured!) The game will always have a place in her heart. Although her goal of being an orthopedic surgeon will put her in med school for a while, she could be working in that field now with all the injury experience she already has! Ha! All kidding aside, she recovered well from each one and we are all grateful for that! She will be an amazing Doctor someday!!

I am so proud of you Harlee!! Congratulations on graduating!! Love you to death!

A “Fair” to Remember

I have always thought it would be so fun to have a photo shoot at the fair! So I grabbed one of my senior reps, Ali and we went! Honestly, I feel this backdrop truly brings out the innocents in this age! It helps them remember how much fun their high school career has been and to embrace the remaining months of their childhood! This shoot was fun and vibrant and there was so much to creativity! I can’t wait to go back for another session! Thank you to my contacts at the Arizona State Fair for being super accommodating! We had a blast!! Is this not the perfect backdrop for your senior photos? Also, a chance to have a little fun too!

Mikala!

2721I had the pleasure of meeting Mikala and her mom, Ann, this past Friday. Mikala is promoting from 8th grade and they contacted me for her promotion photos! She is a beautiful young lady who is so sweet with so much personality! Mikala is an aspiring model and has some great things going on this summer for it! I am so excited for her and I wish her all the luck in the world!
