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.
John and I had a great time photographing Corey’s senior session a couple weeks ago! He mentioned that he wanted some photos with his dirt bike and I decided to run with it. We started out at Emerald Canyon Golf Course since Corey is an avid golfer as well, then hit the Arizona desert for some off roading photos. I’m so pleased with how these turned out and I’m glad Corey and his family thought it was just as cool to go off road a bit to an old mine for portraits. It was the perfect sunset for this session!
Graduation is coming up fast but there’s still time to book your high school senior session! I’d love to hear your ideas and incorporate your interests into the session. Making these so personal make them so much more meaningful in the long run… plus a heck of a lot of fun!
Thanks John for grabbing this. Sometimes you have to get a little dirty to get the shot!
I’ve known Sara for quite a few years now and was excited to do her senior photos for her! It was SUCH a windy day and they trusted me to go ahead with the shoot. It’s funny because Sara seemed so worried about the wind and was planning on rescheduling. I looked out my window and thought “wimp.” It wasn’t that windy. What a difference a few miles makes though! The wind nearly blew her away at times! It worked out perfect though because her hair looked fabulous.
Can I say how much I’m enjoying photographing seniors? I have a few more on the books at the moment but would love to take some more! Parents and seniors, let me know if you’re interested in booking a session! There’s not much time left now!
I had the pleasure of photographing Michael’s older sister Caitlyn last year for her senior session and was excited to get a call to photograph Michael this year! We headed into the Parker valley for some great backdrops and braved the mosquitos that like to come out around sunset. Thankfully Michael was covered with a sweater or letterman jacket but I, unfortunately, was not. I attract mosquitos from miles around apparently but it was totally worth it. He’s an easy guy to photograph! The opposite of the awkward teen. He’ll be heading off to Grand Canyon University soon and plans to be a doctor. This kid is going to do really well.
