Luke came to me with a completely open mind and told me to do what I do.  He knew whatever I’d capture would be awesome and wanted my true style.  Thanks Luke, I had a blast!

elizabeth // senior

Elizabeth is another class of 2013 Salpointe grad that wanted some vibrant colors, with a mix of urban and nature.  She definitely nailed it on that one!  Thanks Elizabeth!

Taylor is an aspiring model, and really has a natural talent to it! She wanted both nature and urban, and Tubac and Tucson can provide that all in one day. Thanks Taylor!

savanna + sedona // senior twins

I always enjoy working with siblings, especially twins, and savanna + sedona were no exception.  I think they were a little apprehensive about being behind the lens, but that melted away pretty quickly and they fell right into being awesome models.  We had a ton of fun exploring some completely new areas of Tucson, thank you Savanna + Sedona!

mikayla // senior

A few years ago I photographed Mikayla’s sister’s wedding in Phoenix with my good friend Sam Hassas.  When Mikayla called about creating her senior portraits, I was flattered that she had remembered me after so many years!  She had some great ideas on some pretty cool locations, and I had a blast spending the afternoon in Phoenix, and in Scottsdale at the Arizona Biltmore hotel.  New locations are always one of my favorite things for any session, thanks Mikayla!

emily // senior

I’ve known I was going to shoot Emily’s senior photos for about 4 years now when I first photographed her family.  I photographed her sister’s senior photos over 2 years ago, and I know Emily was patiently waiting her turn.  We made plans to travel down to her parents farm south of Benson, AZ.  This part of AZ is one of the most beautiful areas I’ve ever seen.  Large open fields with great scenery, and the weather is to die for.  Thank you Emily!

arden // senior

Arden is one of those “models” that make it look easy.  She definitely made my job easy and her photos show it!  We were fortunate to have enough time for quite a few outfits and utilized some cool new locations!  Thanks Arden!

LibbyG-063

libby // senior

Libby is officially my last 2012 senior of the season!  Even though graduation has passed, it’s better late than never to get some awesome senior portraits that will never go out of style.  Libby brought a lot of personality to her images, and her wardrobe was so fun to work with!  Love all the colors!

TaylorT-014

taylor // senior

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!

hannah // senior

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.

MarieC-004

marie // senior

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!

ChloeK-045

chloe // senior

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!

LizF-036

liz // senior

One more session from the Benson area, Liz is a terrific soccer player and loves the outdoors.  I tried something a little more bold and intense, and I think I like it.  So did she.  Thanks Liz!

jessika // senior

You might be wondering if the volleyball net was really out in the middle of no where.  Yes, of course it was :)  I had an awesome time making some fabulous portraits for Jessika.  Her parents are the nicest ever, they came out on set up a net so we could get some fun, different, yet awesome portraits with her passion: volleyball!  Thanks so much for a great time!

alex // senior

Alex and her family are just AWESOME, no doubt about it.  I had a blast working with Alex, photographing everything that involves her personality and character.  I’m really glad I didn’t get hit by a golf ball, but, I did lose my shoe into a big heap of mud while we were under a Tucson underpass…it was totally worth it though.  THANK YOU Alex for being so awesome!  Enjoy :)

lindsey // senior

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!

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!

Had another rockin’ session with Amanda. Fun, spirited, extremely gorgeous and an all around great session. Hard to take a bad photograph of Amanda!

Terra-034

terra // senior

Happy Valentines day!  I saved this one because I knew you all would LOVE this session.  Terra is a very easy-going, free spirited young woman that likes to have fun.  A lot of her session was off the cuff, in that we saw and thought of things that would be fun and went for it.  She hit it out of the park.  We headed down to Tubac and it did NOT disappoint!! Inn-N-Out is also sweet :)

megan’s sweet sixteen

I love my job because I get to work with such awesome and fun people, and Megan’s sweet sixteen party is near the top of the list of fun and awesome photoshoots! Megan’s mom contacted me not too long before her planned birthday extravaganza and had a fantastic idea in mind: surprise photoshoot for 16 cheerleader friends. It evolved to some standard studio portraits of all the girls having a blast into a full blown surprise fashion session atop a downtown Tucson parking garage at 10pm at night. TOTALLY COOL in my book if you ask me. All the girls got all glam’d up, hit the town on a scavenger hunt in a stretch limo, dinner at north, and to end the night was a freaking awesome photoshoot with my crew. I had a complete blast, and from what I hear on the grapevine, so did everyone else. It’s Megan’s birthday tomorrow, so make sure you wish her a Happy Birthday everyone!

My assistant Travis had the idea for a group shot with the photographer, it wasn’t my idea, I swear :P

crystal | lifestyle portraits

I had the opportunity to spend some time with a friend that I’ve known since 7th grade . . . we go way back I guess :)   Crystal was visiting Tucson and we thought it would be fun to just go and get some fun portraits taken and do some catch up.  This type of work is a little bit of a departure from my style since I didn’t bring any off-camera lighting, just the pure natural light available.  Normally I’ll shoot quite a few shots with all natural lighting when I feel the portrait calls for it, but I still will bring my lighting gear along since more often than not I need a bit more control over the situation when it’s needed.  These were meant to be fun, casual, relaxed and free spirited I guess (that might have sounded corny, I know, haha!).

Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

Why the 4 week pause? It was worth it . . .

OK, since I haven’t blogged in about 4 weeks, many have asked me if I have contracted some infectious disease, fallen off the earth or just lost hope.  LUCKILY, none of the latter.  I’ve been preparing for and working on a project that was conceived around that same time . . . and it was such an adventure!  One of my absolute favorite couples I have worked with (and have become really great friends along the way) are Amber & Carraig.  I shot their engagement pictures back in May in the U.S. Virgin Islands on St. Croix.  WOW!  If you didn’t see their pics, do a quick search for them it’s worth it.

Anyway, Carraig’s birthday is today (HAPPY BIRTHDAY!) and Amber wanted to surprise him with something unique, very special and from the heart.  Supposively Carraig is the world’s best at surprises, so she had to do something cool.  Luckily I came to the rescue with a super cool idea for a photo shoot of just Amber, and one of Carraig’s favorite things, snakes.  Yes, Amber and a large 6ft Columbian Boa.  So, unbeknownsted to Carraig, we made plans for her to fly out from Texas, arrive a day before his birthday, do an awesome photo shoot with the snake, get it printed and framed in time for a grande surprise the following day.  Whew, I had a blast and it was absolutely one of the funnest shoots I’ve ever been on.  I’m glad it’s over now because it consumed a lot of my anxiety, I couldn’t wait for it to come :)   Thanks again Amber!!!

So, in case you jumped straight to here, this is what happens when you have awesome clients that let you take complete creative control to create something electrifying:

Katri in Bisbee! Senior Portraits in Bisbee Arizona

So, I guess Bisbee is becoming the next sliced bread, and I must say it is a crazy cool place to take any kind of portraits!  This is my 3rd time down there in about 2 months and I just love that place!  So much character with so many different types of locations.  And to add to the whole “coolness” factor, Katri was a totally awesome Senior to work with.  She had a number of different outfits that were just totally chic!  She also brought her compound bow and rifle . . . but we didn’t get time to have some fun with those unfortunately :(   Maybe next time!

So, for the coolest senior pictures in town, or in the state of Arizona, who you gonna call???  Thanks again Katri, you are totally awesome!

P.S.  Katri is the first Senior Ambassador that I’ve been able to work with for the class of 2009.  If you would like to know more about the Senior Ambassador program that we have, please visit: www.spencerboerup.com/seniors
