50 to Follow in 2019 | Senior Inspire Senior Photographer Awards | Anjeanette Photography Phoenix

I am over the orange moon to have learned this weekend that I was selected as one of

Senior Inspire’s 50 to Follow in 2019- and only ONE of 10 selected in the guys category!

This weekend we’re featuring our 50 Senior Photographers to Follow in 2019! We’ll be featuring 40 winners in the senior girls category and 10 in the senior boys category.

A little background on the contest... We had more than 1,500 images submitted and choosing just 50 photographers was incredibly difficult!

Thank you so much to Senior Inspire, Davin for being my awesome Class of 2019 senior winner, and everyone who trusts me with their children’s memories. <3

See the rest of Davin’s amazing senior session here!


Best Nine is back! The IG tool that evaluates and creates a new image from your most liked feed photos of last year. Go to 2017bestnine.com, a website that sets up & collages your most responded to images of last year. If your a crazy IG fan like me with more than 5 feeds you can have mashing them all into one image as I did myself last year (you will have to use Layout IG own collager or your own editing software)

This year I loved the images but wanted to see some of them better, so I used my iphone app Layout to highlight my top nine in thirds for my senior brand- check out my #bestnine2017  Phoenix, Peoria, & Glendale Arizona high school Senior photography business Instagram!

See you on Instagram! @PhoenixSeniorPhotography

Hannah's senior session captured a third of my top nine all on her own! This gorgeous session at golden hour was a definite hit with a poised color guard spinner as posh and prepared as Hannah!

Proms took another section of the Senior Best Nine- individual sessions like Mason's epic pose (middle) Or Station Camp Senior Prom mini sessions where one of the party goers I met up with was stylish Natalie (top) or the second mini session for Beech's senior prom with Kendall, Savanah, and Sarah (bottom).

My girl, my muse took the last third with images from our Phoenix Mural adventure in formal gown, as well as images from her sweet sixteen birthday in New York at New Years time!

Kendall Part Two | Magical Senior Session | Anjeanette Illustration Seniors

Remember the first part of Kendalls Senior session at the carnival?

How do you top a session so full of fun? Kendall knew she wanted two different locations for her senior photos so we split up her session for two distinct looks. And she has a certain happy place she likes to go whenever she can...

Enjoy these sneak peeks and see if you can guess where we we visited!


Fashion backdrop session | keeping studio sharp | Anjeanette Illustration Seniors

Goofy and fun loving as spontaneity journalistic natural light photography is-and I obviously adore it- I am also a long time fan of stylish, classic, painted backdrops and the elegance of famed photographers Lebowitz and Emily Soto. That's why I never can have just one type of lighting- I want em all! Natty and gritty to flash and poised, the more lighting styles one is comfortable with the more opportunities to play and get exactly the look you want. While my simple backdrops are certainly no Oliphants, I love creating them so I can learn more and playing with studio style strobe lighting at home! Thankfully my daughter indulged my Christmas vacation set up with her favorite outfits and her prized vintage marching band shako. Photographers kids y'all, enduring the well documented life to say the least!

Softbox, Calument 400 @ level 10, Sigma 85mm 1.4 at 2.5, 1/160, iso100. About 5 feet from backdrop?

Shutter drag! While I LOVE Photoshop as well as my 5DM3 in camera Double exposures- this ain't either of those. Check out Ben Sasso lighting tips for how to play with this technique!

Ah, so glad she still puts up with me!

Happy sweet sixteen to my favorite girl!
