It started out as a nice calm evening on the lake. Perfect for a photo session… until a boat full of cat calling bros showed up! Ok, it wasn’t that extreme, but a boat full of some very nice people (including a few handsome gentlemen) did arrive and make a few comments regarding Elizabeth’s obvious good looks. It was perfect for getting a few blushing/flirting images. Let’s be honest though, this beauty doesn’t need much help! She was such a trooper as well since it felt like near gale force winds towards the end! Elizabeth has hair that I’m envious of (for obvious reasons) that was perfect for a bit of the messy whipping around kind of look. Sassy and sweet, such a great combo!
It was a perfect moody kind of day for portraits. The kind we don’t get too often in the desert southwest! I think it matched Lorena’s slightly sassy personality. I love how quickly and easily this girl could change her look. Chucks and skinny jeans to a free flowing bohemian summer dress. Lorena brought the confetti for the last photo and I’m proud to say we picked up every last piece! Haha! It took 4 of us about 15 minutes but we did it and I’m glad we did because I would’ve harbored guilt leaving that mess there.
We had a great time with Jaycie’s Senior Session! She’s a country girl to the core and rocked her boots with a little black dress. We hit the canals in the Parker Valley and the Ahakav Nature Preserve, for that desert rural vibe. Put a real sunflower in the mix? Now that’s a photoshoot. Once Jaycie got used to the camera, she was a natural. Beautiful Arizona evening too!
John and I had scoped out a great spot during lunchtime along the Colorado River. Below the dam the river fluctuates quite a bit and during lunch it was perfect! The water was low enough that Hailey could walk out into the center of the river and essentially it would look as though she were walking on water. As cool as that sounds though… I’m glad it didn’t work out. By that evening the river was at it’s normal level and we had to think on our toes. It’s not that hard though with a young women as beautiful as Hailey. High school seniors are so fantastic to work with because I tell them to do anything and they just do it! Haha! Wade out into the water; walk through those prickly bushes; keep that smile even though mosquitos are eating us alive! Great job Hailey, your photos look fabulous.
