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!

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!

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!

I think that Taylor was a bit reserved before we started her senior portraits.  In fact, I think MOST seniors feel this way…that is until I take their portraits :)  Taylor didn’t realize how awesome her portraits would be, and when I showed her one of the first ones on the back of the camera, she was sold :)  She is also a killer volleyball player!  I’m glad we got a chance to capture that and be a bit different with it.  Thanks Taylor!

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 :)

kevin // tucson senior

Kevin is one of the first sibling-seniors I get to photograph . . . I photographed his sister’s senior portraits almost 3 years ago!  Seems like a long time to me, but I’m glad that I get to work with the family again.  Must have done something right :)  We photographed Kevin’s portraits during the muggy monsoon season here, and the clouds were definitely epic that day.  Golf, good looks and a star soccer player is a winning combo for me.  I LOVE doing the unique and custom stuff . . . as much as I love doing standard portraits, incorporating personality into every session is something I always strive for.  Hope I nailed it this time :)  Thanks again Kevin!

seniors // brett & spencer

I’ve always thought that I have been lucky to work with such awesome clients. One of my latest senior portrait clients were siblings, Brett graduating from the University of Arizona this coming May, and Spencer graduating from CDO Highschool as well. Brett has been riding horses from a very early age, and Spencer is a star soccer player for Canyon Del Oro High School in northwest Tucson (who just happened to win their 2nd 4A State Championship on Friday!!!) Congrats to both of them on their amazing accomplishments!

Both of them were just a blast to work with to create something individual and unique for both of them. Their ease in front of the camera must be genetic, since both of their parents were in my studio in the past months to create new headshots for Cadden Community Management (whose new website just launched)! Check out all of their manager and staff headshots :)

Big thanks to their family for allowing me to create such amazing artwork for you all! I can’t wait for the next project!

Samantha | Senior Model 2010 | Tucson Senior Portraits

It’s been a while since I had the chance to work with Samantha for her Senior Portraits; still getting caught up on a number of things since the big studio open house and I’m just now getting back to nurturing my somewhat lonely blog . . . lot of new things coming up and a lot of new stuff to blog! Samantha was super awesome to work with, very natural in front of the camera and has a smile to die for! She’s very laid back and positive about everything and we had a blast working together. We wanted something custom and unique for her portraits. Samantha used to ride horses a lot, plays softball (and other sports as well) and enjoys fashion and wants to look into modeling. We first headed over to the Tanque Verde Guest Ranch for some relaxed and casual portraits, traveled back to Vail at her high school for some totally rad sports portraits, and then cruised on downtown to work the fashion stuff. My assistant Kyle joined us, along with her sister, and we had a totally rockin’ time downtown. I must say, this is one of my favorite sets to date!

If you’re looking to have your senior portraits done, we can’t emphasize enough the importance of hiring a professional! Sure you can go to the mall, working with a large studio where you’ll be photographed by a staff employee, but you cannot pass up the quality and professional care that we provide. You are capturing your final Senior moments; this is art, not just someone that takes pictures, but a trained artist that knows how to bring the best out of you!


I love the attitude and pose in this one, so hot!

I think I need to back here to capture that texture on the wall, works so well with the jeans and relaxed pose!

This should be an ad . . .

Awesome candid from downtown

You can see why she wants to go into modeling, she is such a natural!

Another great fashion shot

This has to be my favorite of the night, and one of my new top favorites! We found this old broken elevator behind a building in a closed off alleyway . . . it had such a cool feel to it and I think we nailed this vogue-esque look that belongs in a magazine ad!

Another awesome location we found next to the alley here, an old beat up sofa in the middle of nowhere . . . classic Tucson

You probably thought it didn’t get better, but we were heading back to our cars and just kept on finding these awesome locations! Even long after the sun has set, we’re still shooting away and getting awesome stuff!

Iconic Tucson location, no one has shot it better than this!

Chris in action! High School Senior Portraits in Tucson Arizona at La Paloma

I had a fun shoot yesterday with Chris as we did something a little different than I usually do.  Chris plays on the volleyball team at his school and we arranged to get some cool action shots on the court at the High School.  It was a blast!  Chris was a little unsure I think of how we could make “cool” volleyball shots, but I think we nailed them here.  It was quite nostalgic as well, as it was the same High School I attended too!  I even saw one of my old history teachers, but I don’t think he remembered me :)   Anyway, I approached this like a Nike / Gatorade ad, all those cool action shots you always see in the magazines.

We finished up the fun action pictures and then headed over to La Paloma for some other more formal / casual type portraits.  We barely missed the rain but I think they worked out just well!  Thansk again Chris!

Also to show off some of the cool posters we can create, here’s a little mokup:

 

I was also fortunate enough to have been able to work with Chris’ family for a awesome family portrait out on the east side a couple weeks ago.  Their family was one of the easiest to work with, they just fell in place, looked great!  They make it look so easy to do!  Thanks again!

Senior Ambassadors | Tucson Arizona Senior Portraits

Calling all Class of 2009 seniors! If you haven’t made your way over to our Senior Ambassador page, stop what you are doing and go!

I’m excited to start working with the Class of 2009 seniors in creating the coolest, most awesome and beautiful Senior Portraits that you can find in all of Arizona. I’m looking for Ambassadors from a number of different High Schools to help promote our senior portrait work, in exchange for a free package and also cash rewards (more details on the senior’s site). I will start working with the Ambassadors in the final weeks of June and beginning of July. There is a limited number of Ambassadors accepted per school, so apply now if you are interested!
