MY INSTAGRAM BEST NINE OF 2017 | HAPPY NEW YEAR! | ANJEANETTE PHOTOGRAPHY Senior Portraits ARIZONA

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!
