This book-loving, big, beautiful-eyed, little girl was so much fun to photograph! She was all about our session, and it was so much fun getting family photos of the sweet Brown family. Though little ones don’t usually last too long for family photos, this little lady was chugging along well into an hour, and loving every minute! One of her very favorite things to do is read, so we of course had to get the obligatory family-reading-together photos. I LOVE when families want to put a personal touch to their photo sessions. Capturing the “this-is-us” moments is what makes my job so much fun!
A tennis star and bookworm at Red Mountain High School in Mesa, Kylie is one amazing young woman. Her smile is so infectious, just one of those girls who brings so much light and joy into the room! Not to mention she is just an absolute natural beauty – that amazing curly hair and beautiful eyes! And most fun of all, we did her senior photos on her 18th birthday! Hence the balloons, we had to celebrate somehow Kylie is originally from Washington State and just moved to Arizona this year. And this fall she’s headed up to NAU to get her academia on. As we head into summer, I’m just a bit jealous of the beautiful weather and pine trees awaiting her in August. Enjoy next year, Kylie, you are going to be amazing!
With her sights set on studying acting in the fall, Abi wanted to shoot some modeling and acting portfolio photos along with her senior pictures. I love the look of outdoor, natural-light modeling photos, and Abi looked absolutely stunning! It’s been a tough season for this senior as she’s had to travel all over the US for college acting school auditions. With the hard work over, now all she has to do is wait – but if you ask me, that’s the hardest part! But I know this talented senior will go far, and it was so fun to spend the afternoon with her getting some gorgeous senior photos!
I normally don’t talk much about physical beauty mainly because I believe beauty is so much more than how we look. But I know, especially for senior photos, getting hair and makeup done, picking out your very best outfits, and looking downright knockout gorgeous is half the fun. On that note, let me first say that Morgan, a Desert Ridge High School Senior, was one of the kindest, sweetest, young women I’ve had the opportunity to photograph for senior pictures. Her personality is one that just makes you want to grab a cup of coffee and chat for hours. Obviously beautiful on the inside. But can I just say, those eyes!! What?! They are the most piercing blue I have ever seen! Normally I do a bit of eye brightening in editing, nothing too crazy, just enough to make eyes pop, but honestly, for Morgan, #nofilter. Morgan has plans to attend ASU next year, and can I just say, she rocks the maroon and gold – good luck, girl, you’re going to be amazing!
How much more adorable can the Tucker family get?! This little man was all about getting his photos taken. Some kids love photo shoots, others would probably rather be watching Curious George, but this guy, he was all about hamming it up for the camera. I’m pretty sure he would have taken photos for a good two more hours, except, you know, mom, dad, photographer, probably wouldn’t have lasted that long 😉 I guess if the little kid thing doesn’t work out he could always be a model…
