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!

andrew // senior

Andrew is officially my last senior I got to photograph in 2011, and we certainly went out with a bang! Andrew is an incredible golfer…I only know this because everyone at the club we went to knew him by name…AND he has a scholarship to the #1 golf team in the country. Ya, kid is good. Sweet mustang, awesome light = epic photos. I’m also very very fond of the 2nd to last photo, one of my favorite portraits ever! So excited to get it printed big and displayed how I would present it. Thank you Andrew!

jordan // senior

I really LOVE getting to work with seniors that incorporate talents and hobbies into their portraits.  Jordan is a fantastic softball player and knows how to intimidate!  We also took some portraits at a new location for me…cool bridges, rocks, streams and trees – all things that are NOT common around here :)  Thanks for trying something new Jordan and TOTALLY rocking it!

Sharon is very natural in front of the camera, I don’t think she took a bad picture once!  Another set of AWESOME portraits, thank you Sharon!

I had another great session down in the Benson area with Kelsi!  Such a wonderful day!  Beautiful light, good friends, a perfect combination for great portraits :)  Thank you Kelsi for such a great time!

roby // senior

Roby = awesome.  I had a great session and SUPER excited about a new location I’ve been wanting to try in the downtown area.  I LOVE parking garages…if you didn’t know that yet.  Roby is sweet, kind, confident and beautiful.  Thank you Roby!

natalie // senior

I had an awesome and fun time with Natalie out in the Benson area.  Many laughs were had with her and her sister, and I’m just in love with these images!  We got rained (hailed) out the first time we were planned for her portraits, but this day was just absolutely perfect!  Thanks again Natalie!

Had an awesome session with my first official 2012 senior, Lindsey!  We about melted our faces off at Sabino Canyon, and then later went to the downtown area for some fun urban, chic portraits.  LOVE all of her photos, enjoy!

caitlin // senior

Caitlin is officially my last 2011 senior.  We had a great time in the Sabino Canyon creek, thankfully it wasn’t scorching hot out yet!  We then headed down to the UofA since she’ll be a Wildcat this coming fall!  Good times and laughs were had, thanks Caitlin!

Brianna-G-049

brianna // senior

It’s getting close to wrapping up senior season, but I’m super glad that I had the chance to work with Brianna.  She’s incredibly smart, a long-distance runner, a new older sister, and has a contagious loving personality that just makes you smile when you are around her!  Looking forward to working with her family later this year, and thank you again for a great session Brianna!

allie // senior

Allie has been dancing since she was young and certainly had the moves to prove it. I love incorporating talents, interests or hobbies into sessions, it always makes them that much more unique. Her parents also have a killer classic muscle car (jealous). If you don’t know her, she is incredibly easy to talk to, so make sure you say hi! Thanks Allie!

karolyn // senior

It’s always fun trying new locations and ideas for senior portraits!  Karolyn wanted lots of color, and something somewhat traditional and classy, yet still a lot of fun.  I think we nailed it.  Thank you Karolyn!

paisley // senior

Paisley was meant for Bisbee. I knew it when we first met and started talking about her style, taste, and what she and her mom were looking for. It’s been quite a while since I had been there, but I had a blast working with both of them. You wouldn’t even know from the pictures that it was EXTREMELY windy the entire day, but Paisley totally rocked this one. Totally new locations that we found on the side of the road. I love my job. Thanks Paisley!

SavannahBon-017

savannah // senior

Savannah has a knack for fashion, and for hotdogs.  We even went to Guero Canelos (they have the BEST sonoran hotdogs out there) for some fun pics!  We all had way too much fun creating her pics.  Fun, demure and beautiful, this is Savannah.

lindsey // senior

Had another fun session with Lindsey at the TV Ranch and then some more in the downtown Tucson area.  She’s definitely one of the few senior girls that I have photographed that has a wicked cool car; I’m officially jealous as I always wanted a Camaro when I was in High School.  Fun, cute and colorful, this is Lindsey.

DeaR-068

dea // senior

When Dea met with me about her senior portraits, she said she was very critical of photographers of herself.  No sweat!  If you have fun (which ALWAYS happens during my sessions), then your photographs will be awesome.  She told me she loved the nature atmosphere, and wanted to do some near water.  What she didn’t tell me was she wanted to be IN the water . . . that means I had to be IN the water too.  It was SO worth it too!  Casual, nature, water and cowboy hats; this is Dea.

brooke // senior

I LOVE new locations, and Brooke had two new locations for me to use. I’ve been to both locations before, but never really to take some awesome portraits. Beautiful day, water in the Sabino Canyon creek, perfect light, this is Brooke.

Niki-Barnes-022

niki // senior

Niki traveled all the way from Colorado to have her senior pictures done by me. I guess I’m doing something right! We shot in the beautiful Arizona desert, it never gets old I promise :) New, original, natural beauty, this is Niki.

Jenna-H-055

jenna // senior

Another AMAZING senior session with Jenna. Everything about this session simply rocked. I was able to try out two brand new locations, both of which will remain a secret . . . mainly because one of them is a private ranch that we had special permission to use. Let me say it was just AMAZING. The light, locations, senior (and her assistant) were just fab. Thanks Jenna!

karli // senior

It’s been a tad busy around here . . . I’ll probably have photographed 17 senior sessions from March to April and plenty more coming. Karli is one of these awesome seniors that can make every photo look awesome. We started at the La Paloma resort and then headed to the urban downtown area for some more portraits. We did some new gritty stuff and even saw the return of one of my favorite lenses. Thanks Karli!!!

adria + isaac // seniors

Adria + Isaac are brother & sister that are both graduating this coming May (not twins either).  We planned a customized session for both of them and just had a blast.  Although most guys don’t admit it, older brothers love their sisters and their family.  Photographing siblings makes for fun jokes, inside jabs and other comments that only a sibling would appreciate (and bear).  Thanks to this awesome family, it was SOOO much fun!

LindsayEdwards-048

lindsay // senior

Well it’s hard to believe that it has taken me this long to blog.  There are a LOT of really exciting things in the pipeline that I cannot wait to blog.  You’re gonna love it, so if you can be a tad more patient it’l be worth it :)

I had an AWESOME session with Lindsay (and her good friend Amanda) down in the Tubac area.  Lindsay knew exactly what she wanted and we went out and captured exactly that: fun.  They have known each other for a LONG time so she knew they had to have pictures together, having fun.  So, swinging at the park, hanging upside-down from trees, rolling in the leaves, leaf fights and a whole lot more was definitely a recipe for success.  Thanks to both of you for such a great time!

Nikki-025-website

nikki // senior

I’ve been dying to blog some of Nikki’s senior portraits, and you’ll understand why.  We had been rained out on our first meeting and had to postpone the 2nd part of her session till a later date.  Nikki is fun, funny, a good friend, a great model, and relatives of some of my previous clients.  In my book, that makes her totally awesome :)  Nikki works at a sweet local coffee shop and was the location for the first portion of her session.  We then headed downtown and tried out some totally new locations, and totally new ideas for me.  I had jotted down some sweet concepts in my head and I think we totally nailed all of them.  She could totally be a model.  Thanks Nikki!

cesar // salpointe senior portraits

Cesar is just one of those guys.  The type thats just cool, legit and smart at the same time.  His aspirations are high and he’ll go far, excited to see what he’ll be doing in 5 years.  Who knows maybe he’ll be a big business tycoon and be famous someday . . . I wouldn’t be surprised.  Cesar and I had an awesome time working together, shooting on 4th avenue, downtown and just doing some fun, off-the-wall, new and crazy stuff.  He’s cool because he goes to the same school where my wife teaches, props man.  Check out his awesome pics.

regan // senior portrait

I’ve had the pleasure with working with the Ratliff family previously, but I was super excited when they called back to finally get Regan’s senior portraits created.  They had a sour experience working with another photographer that the school had recommended, but I’m glad they finally called back.  She was very natural in front of the camera the first time I worked with the family, and I was stoked to work with her again (I’m sure you can see why).  I was able to work with a couple of cool new locations and just have some fun.  Beautiful day, great locations, awesome and unique wardrobe, fun dogs, AMAZING light = mind-blowing!  Thanks again, look forward to working with this family for many many years to come!
