Noah

Noah is best friends with Parker who is another senior I had this year. They both had their senior sessions at the salvage yard so it gave me a challenge. I have always said that ifย  I repeated a location, the images would never look the same as someone else’s. From posing to angles and backdrops. The fact that they are best friends, givesย  a pretty good chance that their graduation announcements will be sent to some of the same people. I needed to make sure that even though their location was the same, their images would still stand out from one another. And they do!

I sound like a broken record, but I really do love Desert Valley Auto Parts. It is fun to walk around and find new areas to use for backdrops. Also, there is some really awesome desert right across the way so one session can have two totally different looks!

I love how Noah’s images are turning out. I found new spots and angles to keep it fresh and different.

As Noah graduates and sets plans for his future, I hope his goals are high and his dreams are big!

Engagement Session, Weddings

Tiff & Bran

I met Tiffany over 5 years ago. Do you remember when getting feathers in your hair was super popular? My girls HAD to get one and Kaycee’s gymnastics coach had a friend who did them. So I took the girls to her salon and Tiffany put cute little feathers in the girls hair!

From there, I started getting my hair done and we became instant friends. We have done so many photo shoots together over the years and by far, this is my favorite. Their first engagement shoot was 5 years ago when Brandon proposed! They finally set a date in October of this year and so an updated session was much needed!

Tiffany and Brandon are an amazing couple. They are super adventurous! They love being on the lake in the summer wake boarding, jet skiing, you name it! She even gets dirty with him in the desert, quad riding and dirt bike riding. The fun these two have keeps the spirit of their relationship alive and will continue for years to come!

I love that they have each other and are so happy. You can feel the love they have for each other in every photo. I can’t wait to be there at their wedding and capture the first day of the rest of their lives!!

Love you both! Congratulations!! xoxo

Nyssa

Have I ever told you all how much I love my job?? Seniors like Nyssa put a smile on my face and remind me everyday of the passion I have for what I do! Not only do I love to produce amazing images for my seniors and their parents, I also get to know these amazing young people and how much this generation will make a difference in our future!

Thank goodness the clouds parted ways for her session but it was COLD! There was a definite 20 degree difference in the sun versus the shade. I told Nyssa to keep jumping up and down, running, anything to stay warm! Her feet were numb but only because she was wearing her moms shoes that were a size and a half too small! But hey! Beauty is pain and the heels looked so cute on her!

Her brother was a great assistant for me and learned how to use the reflector perfectly! And this session made it real for mom that in a few short months she will be a high school graduate and will be off to the air force!

This session was beautiful and I am so glad to have met Nyssa and her family!

Nylah

Road trips are always an amazing way to have a memorable senior session! That is exactly what Nylah did! We started at the White tank mountains and ended up in Flagstaff where in a few short months, she will be living! We found a laundry mat during ourย  trip and thought it would be fun to get creative and get something totally unique added to her shoot!

Nylah’s biggest request was the snow! She needed that to make her session perfect. This winter has been so mild that we were very nervous about making that happen. She was overjoyed when we found patches of it!! It was enough to make her so happy! She was in her own world which made for some adorable shots!

Even though Nylah is one of my senior reps, I had fun spending the day together getting to know her even more! She is the sweetest girl, so excited about moving to Flagstaff and I can already see what an awesome “little” adult she will be! She will have no problem with living in the snow either!

Make sure to click on the photos to enlarge them! She has the most electric blue eyes I have ever seen!!

High School Senior Photography

Kaycee

I’m sure by now everyone knows who my kids are! This one is my senior this year! Fun fact: She does not like taking pictures that much! She was the reason I started photography! I was the typical mom having her first baby and wanting to capture every second of her life! She was like my real life Barbie doll. I would put her in all different outfits and take pictures of her.

You see, my husband and I have his, hers, and ours. Kaycee and I met Kylee when she was 6 and at that time Kaycee was 2. That was in 2002. Then, Clint and I were married in 2003 and had Maddie in 2004. From then on, I had 3 gorgeous models that I could photograph any time I wanted! If I was searching for a new location, I would tell them to dress up and we would have a photo shoot! (that would actually be a fun post to share! The girls would probably kill me!)

Anyways, Kaycee is the one that will give me 30 minutes and then be done. But she is also a huge supporter of my photography! So of course, it’s not just one senior session. I have to split them up into 30 minute sessions! LOL This being the first. Her boyfriend was in this shoot which will be a later post!

Ok, I am rambling! Kaycee is one of the strongest kids I have ever known. She has a deep routed passion for Christ and centers her life around Him. She knows that He has huge plans for her and is so ready for the next adventure, NAU! She will be moving to Flagstaff in the fall and I am so proud of her. She is definitely the type of girl that really doesn’t know how beautiful she is!
