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!

austen // tucson senior

Austen and her sister hung out under a bridge with me and this is the result.  These two could seriously be models!  We then went around the University of Arizona to finish up, thanks guys!

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!

gus // senior

Gus is a pretty cool dude and incredibly talented guitarist.  He just won an international award for Classical Guitar and will be featured on NPR this coming February.  He’s got some mad skills!  These portraits were a bit dual purpose…senior portraits and future album artwork.  Remember me when you’re famous Gus!

TylerA-059

tyler // senior

Tyler is my last senior portrait for 2012 and I can’t believe the year is already winding down. I’ve had a great 2012 year and Tyler’s portraits are honestly some of my absolute favorites. We started with some casual baseball portraits, and then explored the downtown area and tried out some new things. This kid could be on the cover of a few magazines. Thanks Tyler!

ArdenS-051

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!

natalie // senior

I love it when seniors bring their friends (or boy/girlfriend) along, always makes it more interesting behind the scenes, and Natalie & Sean are a pretty darling couple. It’s almost as if they make a great “hollywood” couple together :) Thanks for an awesome time!

DanNic-033

danielle + nicole // seniors

While this isn’t the first set of twins I’ve worked with, just the first identical twins.  We had a blast shooting down near Sonoita and it was just an amazingly beautiful day.  We would switch off from shot to shot between Danielle + Nicole, and it seemed to progressively get better as we went along.  I just LOVE their photos!  Thanks Danielle + Nicole!

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!

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!

MacKenzieD-032

mackenzie // senior

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!

mason // senior

Mason is #2 in the family that I have had the privilege to photograph!  I photographed his brother Mylen last year…man does time fly!  Mason is just a cool and chill dude, makes modeling look easy.  Oh, he has a pretty neat tattoo as well.  Thanks Mason!

kristina // senior

Kristina had a lot of great ideas that she wanted to try and it was a total home run!  We used a beautiful stage at the Temple for Music & Art and then headed to the Tubac area for more “woodsy” type portraits.  The light was BEAUTIFUL…wow, just amazing.  Thank you Kristina!

JordanR-016

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!

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!

RobyA-057

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!

chantelle // senior

I was super excited for Chantelle’s portraits the minute she came to the studio and told me some of her interests. The graffiti idea was a hit and was executed better than I could have honestly hoped for! We spent the rest of the time down on the 4th avenue area and just had a blast with new and interesting stuff. Thanks for being so awesome!

hannah // senior

Hannah is an another hardcore softball player- complete with a recent injury. But you would never guess with such awesome pictures! We had a blast in Benson, AZ where we found some totally awesome abandoned train cars. Thank you, Hannah, for such a great session!

MakaylaM-048

makayla // senior

Makayla is another hardcore softball player and LOVES to dress up!  We had a great time east of Benson, AZ creating some fun portraits that really capture her personality and style.  Makayla has a bright future ahead with a full-ride scholarship playing softball as a pitcher…she is pretty freaking good at it too.  Best of luck on your final HS season Makayla!

Sammi-007

sammi // senior

Sammi is a hardcore softball player that has been playing for practically forever.  She has a few State Championships on her belt and already has a sweet scholarship to play ball out of state!  We headed to Tubac AZ and had a great time in all the lush greenery that the monsoons have created.  Their baseball diamond was totally rad, and at the very end we almost got bit by a 4ft rattlesnake…it definitely woke me up :)  Thanks again Sammi for allowing me to create such awesome portraits for you!

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!

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!

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.
