Austin

I have known Austin since he was in kindergarten. His older sister and Kylee are best friends and Kaycee and him are the same age. So when Tiffani would come over to our house, there were a few times that Austin came over as well. I could add in some pretty funny videos of Kaycee and him dancing to Michael Jackson but I will be nice and not embarrass them! Although, neither one are the embarrassed type!

Anyways, now Austin is a senior and getting ready to graduate and two of his pride and joys are his truck and football. Naturally, adding these into his session brought his personality to the forefront.

It was so awesome that I was his photographer and made it easier for him to be comfortable in front of the camera. However, that wasn’t too hard because Austin has a knack for the spotlight! I was happy to have spent some time with him and his mom to reminisce about when he was little and how proud we are of him and his future!

Before we know it, graduation will be here! Have you booked your senior session yet?

Madison

Madison-101Madison-100Madison-102Madison-30Madison-104Madison-105Madison is one of my senior reps and she is an absolute doll! She put a lot of thought into her senior session. Her mom and her took a day in search of locations to really fit her personality and did just that! We headed to downtown Phoenix with our chauffer, AKA her dad, to all the different areas that she liked! The session was perfect!

I loved that Madison wanted to incorporate her hometown of Manitoba, Canada. She also added a vintage feel with her Grandfathers’ suitcase and the dress she bought while in Canada over the summer. Her senior session showed her personality through and through with everything from her props, style and her beautiful smile!

Senior portraits are more than just photographs to look back on for years to come. It is a chance to show the true character of the senior and reflect on the high school years that have made them who they are today! As parents we have these photos that will always remind us of how proud we are of the amazing children we were gifted to raise!

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!

Tina!

2471521        My senior rep, Tina, said she wanted her senior shoot to be in the snow and she knew the perfect location. So of course, I said yes! New area? I’m all about it! And…serious??? This place was amazing!! It was a perfect day! Snow on the ground, frozen lake and 54 degrees outside! At one point, we were all sweating! That’s my kind of cold! Since we were in this beautiful northern part of Arizona, I decided to take advantage! I had a thought of a red silk skirt on wonderful white snow. I had a dear friend of mine whip up a beautiful skirt that Tina had no problem wearing for me! She looked stunning in it! I loved having the vision come to life! Everything about this shoot was perfect! I loved the outfits! Each one made her look different in the same area! Snow bunny, winter goddess, you name it, she made it happen! I was so happy with this shoot and I hope Tina loves her finished product!!

Beauty in Everything

This shoot left me speechless.

So I am probably the last photographer to find a junkyard but I don’t care! I have been searching forever, but I guess not hard enough because this place is so close to my house! You can imagine my excitement! Once I arrived and walked in, it was like I was in Heaven! It was everything I had hoped it would be! Including the staff there! They were awesome and so friendly! So, it was settled…I had to have a style shoot here!

I immediately had the idea of what I wanted to do! I wanted a long flowy dress that would blow in the wind along with edgy hair, makeup and jewelry. I couldn’t find a dress that fit my thought, unless I was looking at spending a few hundred dollars, so I went to the fabric store. I found chiffon in the colors I wanted and made skirts myself! My vision was coming to life!

I called Tiffany, who, you all know by now, is the best hair and makeup artist! I told her about the ideas I had and of course she came up with hair and makeup that was perfect for it! Again, exactly the way I had envisioned it. I couldn’t have been happier about the way it turned out!

Obviously, we had to find a model! Brooke totally fit the part! Being one of my senior spokesmodels, it was so easy to just call her up and she was so excited to help! She knew the edgy look I was going for and came up with outfit number 2. It was perfect! Leather leggings, sky high heels, and the pops of color in the tank and bandeau. This shoot was just getting better and better.

The final touch was jewelry. I knew exactly what I wanted and instead of going from store to store, who better to ask than my mom who makes jewelry!! I bought everything for the necklace and asked her to put her creativeness to work. Once again, she just knew what I wanted because when I saw the finished product, I was blown away. To a tee what I wanted!

The day of the shoot was finally here, hair and makeup done and we headed to the junkyard. We only had an hour before it was closing and let me tell you, I would have taken pictures all day! We were focused and got to work. Through my camera my vision awoke! I couldn’t believe it! Every pose, amazing. My assistants that day were my daughters, Kaycee and Maddie and everything that was needed from them, they gave their all! They had been a part of this shoot when it was just a thought so long ago and they knew as well what to do to make it real.

Then I reviewed my photos.

Speechless.

I was beyond excited and I can finally share them with you! I hope you love them as much as I do! A big thanks to everyone on my team who helped make this shoot so amazing! Tiffany- you are extremely talented and I am so grateful for you! Mom- your jewelry is so beautiful and handmade. What could be better? Brooke- Thank you for being my beautiful model. You brought it to life! I’m so glad you had fun with us! The guys at the junkyard- Much love! I will be a regular! To my girls, thanks for being my biggest fans and my great assistants!

Who will be my next session in the junkyard?
