Had such a great time meeting up with Faith and her folks down on Hermitage Square for her high school senior portrait session! Downtown Phoenix is an adventure of colours, and great photo textures- and sometimes adventures in finding parking spaces!! But Faith’s smiles lit the city up brighter than the sunshine :)
Fantastic time with Katie for her graduation pictures at the Desert Botanical Gardens at the beginning of the month. She was all ethereal beauty one moment, and Carrie Fisher spunky smiles the next!
Now Senior photo session season is in full swing! (get it- golf joke) Can’t believe Katie and the rest of the Class of 2019 is just a few months from graduation!!!

The splashes of colour and city vibe have def been the most popular spots this high school senior portrait session season! We are so blessed to live in a vibrant fun city with so many neat spots- and Mikaela rocked them all! From Roosevelt Row to Grand ave this Arizona girl stunned in her graduation photo session!
We had some help from Mikaleas brother Aaron- he manned the Ice Light on a fushia setting to create the zig zag halo behind her head for this photo!
Phoenix had a surprisingly windy and cold- snowy even- and so Hannah’s senior session was a whirlwind of colourguard flags in the wind and golden curls. After warming in up in charming BeCoffee the sun popped out to end the afternoon session in warmth and reflections in Phoenix!

I am SO tired of all the styled shoots that are "pretty" let's be honest for a second...I WANT REAL LIFE. I want you to think outside the box. How do you react in real life situations. -Valie Waldvogel, VW Photography
The other night I got to go on a photography ‘playdate’ - you know us photographers, the glitz, the glam, the dump. Yep, we went to the dump! Shout out to Valerie Waldvogel for styling, providing amazing models, and securing the most wondrous of locations: aka the Glendale Dump for her new monthly styled sessions “What I See Shoot” aimed at photographers on every leg of their journey from noobies with their first dslr to more seasoned, professional photographers.
(Hmm what seasoning would I be? Am I in the Cumin stage of pro photography or a little more Paprika?)
Valerie used this session to provide education and experience to a group she taught throughout the afternoon , and to just boost camaraderie with all of us- be it on on manual mode with our own photography businesses or first ‘real’ camera.The shoot was a reminder to challenge oneself - find beauty in any situation, any location. I had a great afternoon meeting everyone in my group, folks in other groups, and just enjoying the warm sunshine through the lens.
Getting out and practicing and playing isn’t something you ever ‘get too good’ for. Creative meet ups like this one Valerie organized keep the passion alive!
Always learning, always experimenting, always evolving!
These beautiful models and dresses have me like…PROM…though!! Moody or bright and airy- I love prom season! It is just around the corner believe it or not, and I already have booking for April 27th…make #PROM2K19 plans today!
Gorgeous session at the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden with high school baccalaureate Hallie! Super smart and adorable, she did a fantastic job as we enjoyed a photo shoot through
a beautiful winter day. Great Seniors = Great Senior Portraits!!! So happy to have met Hallie and her folks and blessed they choose me for her portraits :)
Before I moved to Arizona I did not even know Aloe bloomed! Right now the city and gardens are lush and green in the state’s heavenly “winter” season.
I KNOW its Christmas time- but a bunch of my spring dates filled up for the Class of 2019 this past week- here is what left! Thinking ahead this year so I do not have to turn anyone away again and so that prints or galleries arrive BEFORE graduation. Its gonna speed up on you fast folks- if you choose a date we will schedule you and cross it off just for you :)
Dates only scheduled and held with contract and retainer. First come first served. Some dates have slight restrictions (see asterisks etc)
THE photo contest is here again!!! So excited for the Superbowl of annon photographers-
Here are my hopes and dreams for the past season- 2018 & 2019 seniors in here (strict contest rule- you cannot enter any image you have entered previously!)
So in between Sportsball commercials I will be click happy voting for and being inspired by the contest entries! Voting starts Feb 1st and ANYONE can vote!
Had a great time meeting Preston and his mom at the anthem Community Park a little while for a short and sweet senior session! This one is a keep it simple, nothing fancy- and Preston was the perfect guy for it because he was ready with a quick smile and laugh to get everything his family wanted with lots of time to submit for the Anthem Preparatory Academy. I do love a school that lets seniors choose their own portraits!
The Senior mini session is great for kids that have an easy, relaxed smile right away, and are very comfortable in front of the camera. They don’t want to fuss with a bunch of wardrobe changes so we keep it fun and light- easy going and as painless as possible :)
The students interested in a mini are great kids who know what they want- andare not interested in a movie or have such busy schedules- but they know portraits matter to mom!
It was so great working with you Preston- congrats on a great High School experience and all the wonderful adventures that wait!!
Kristen's senior session was magical! A fantastic young lady, I had such a great time meeting her, learning about her musical theatre dreams, and chatting with her sweet folks while we explored the desert gardens at sunset.
