I think Taylor was a bit camera shy when we started, but that changed very quickly and clearly had fun the rest of the time we shot :)  She has style, has a cool Jeep and knows how to have fun!  Downtown is always a fun and changing backdrop for some great senior portraits.  Enjoy!

Meet Hannah + Dutchey.  Dutchey is a pretty amazing horse, and we all traveled down to the Sonoita area where he lives  to visit.  We had some of the most beautiful light that day, and Hannah totally just killed it…thanks Hannah!

PS – It is the most beautiful part of Arizona ever, so if you’ve never been south to Sonoita, you are missing out.

Tatum is very natural in front of the cam…even from the very first minute she was just fun and easy to photograph!  I always enjoy trying new locations as well, and we went to a place in the sabino creek where she would play when she was growing up…it didn’t even look like Tucson! Thanks Tatum!

I love these guys.  They just fit so well together and are oozing with love and spontaneity, its too cute :)  We had an awesome afternoon at the Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain golf club.  It’s a gorgeous place and the weather was simply amazing.  Can’t wait for their wedding this fall at the resort!

Another fun senior session a few weeks back with Lauren!  She is a talented dancer and really knows how to pull off that ‘vogue’ look well :)  Thanks Lauren!

debbie + aaron // wed

It has been a lot of fun getting to know Debbie & Aaron.  They brought me out to Chicago for their awesome engagement portraits last summer, and it was then that I could really tell that they were really in love with each other.  I anticipated that emotions would run high on the wedding, and they definitely did.  They are both some of the most thoughtful, caring and loving couples I’ve had the pleasure to work with.  It was a beautiful day in Tucson, and Ventana Canyon was an awesome venue to work with.  Thank you Debbie & Aaron for trusting my vision and allowing me to create some awesome portraits of your day!

Kyle is another sibling of a past senior I photographed.  His sister was one of my very early seniors over 3 years ago!  We went out to a very very remote location in Dragoon, AZ…about 20 minutes away from Benson near the base of some REALLY awesome mountains.  It was a mecca for southwest-style locations, with an incredibly awesome dirt road that takes you there…dirt roads + a subaru = fun :)  Kyle is also an accomplished volleyball player!  The final shot below involved ZERO photoshop :)  Thanks Kyle!

Marie has a seriously cool heritage and I was honored to be able to capture part of that.  We shot on the Pasqua Yaqui tribe in front of some murals that are culturally important to her family.  One of those murals also featured her grandmother, who contributed a great service during WW2!  We had more fun in the Tubac area for some other great portraits as well…thank you Marie!

Chloe is very natural in front of the camera, it seemed like she couldn’t take a bad photo!  We also did this session in record time and still rocked out some amazing photos!  Thank you Chloe!

I had a pretty fun time with MacKenzie and her awesome bike!  I’m pretty sure she’s had it for a long time now but still looks brand new!  Fun wardrobe + fun personality + fun bike = unique portraits!  Thanks MacKenzie!
