Athlete Rylie visited her favorite state Arizona for epic senior pictures this month while on a whirlwind tour of gymnastic competitions and clinics across the Southwest. She is expected to excel at a top level in all areas of the demanding sport, but she says her favorite parts are uneven bars, balance beam. Her hard work and training were really evident in every effortless movement from walking, to posing, to leaping on top of a mountain barefoot she made it look so easy! A fun session full of smiles and grace!
It’s my babies senior year and I just may have gone a little overboard with senior pictures! But can you really go overboard? Nah! My girl is an outside of the box dreamer, with music and art in her heart always- we wanted to plan a fun trip that also expressed her personality and charm!
I actually like to keep my packages pretty simple! 30mins for the more camera shy senior, two hours with a mini senior movie (the most popular), and the travel Adventure package!
For my daughter’s road trip session we started from Phoenix to Palm Springs, California. The next day we hit Newport Beach and Balboa Pier, then onto a day in Los Angeles where we visited The Last Bookstore - has to be seen by any book lover- and the MOCA. Another day on the beach at El Matador and La Piedra for gorgeous sea spray and sand. We popped by the Rose Bowl to catch a DCI drum corps show one day, then we were off to one of my bucket list photo session spots: the Nelson Nevada Ghost Town and Eldorado Canyon Mine Tours!
SO are YOU up for an adventure for your Senior Portrait Experience?? Its more possible and affordable than you might think! What adventure calls to you?
So this collection of photos is what my “Adventure Package” looks like- travel and unlimited outfits and poses! You can find out more about all my packages here:
It was hot when we got home to Phoenix- so indoor studio marching band portraits of course! I am so thankful she puts up with me :)
I had so much fun building this puzzle on Instagram to feature
Oonagh’s senior picture adventure!
Fantastic Summer senior session with avid hiker and naturalist Dylan last week at White Tanks Mountain Park! Dylan is a photographer too so we had a great time talking shop and getting fun images in the mountains. Like my family Dylan and his visited and feel in love with Arizona, and couldn’t wait to get here among the wild cacti and adventure. Have a fantastic senior year in Phoenix Dylan!
For small photography sessions (5 folks and under) the White Tanks Rangers are very friendly and accommodating with a small fee and just breath taking views and trails. Be careful of the waterfall area in the hot months- if there is any water in the small basin at the bottom there are so many bees! Leave the area and them, ah, “be” because we need those guys and nobody wants to end a hike with a thousand stings.
Will totally crushed his senior portrait session in downtown Phoenix last week! I couldn’t wait to get these photos uploaded and edited. And the folks over at Indie Senior Magazine noticed too! About 2 mins after I posted Will’s sneak peeks on my Instagram- they re-grammed them and featured his pictures on their Instagram page!
Congrats Will! Fantastic job and have a great graduation!
Haven’t even finished editing his gallery and Will was already chosen as a fashion feature on Indie Seniors Instagram page! Ever have one of those sessions when you had a pretty good idea it was going to go well right from the start? Well check out this one below, clocking in at about 10 mins after just meeting Will in downtown Phoenix for his senior portrait experience!
Much more to come when I finish Will’s gallery this week!!
I always say it takes great kids to make great photos- what a great group of kids this is! Rising seniors Class of 2020 and graduating 2019 got together for fun Prom2K19 downtown Phoenix Arizona at the Steele Indian Park. Later this group grabbed some corndogs at Sonic then headed off to dance at Wrigley Mansion!
