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!

Maria totally rocked the camera, even though she probably thinks she’s camera shy. Sometimes it just takes a few minutes to warm up and then people open up and just totally surprise me. Thanks Maria!

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!

cierra + adam // engaged

Cierra & Adam are definitely in love, and are high school sweethearts too!  They were willing to try some funky ideas I had and we had a ton of fun roaming the UofA campus and in the downtown area as well.  I love working with couples that are head over heels for each other!

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!

kimberly + phil // wed

Kimberly + Phil are two awesome people that are REALLY in love.  They feel like long lost friends.  I had the pleasure of shooting their engagements in Nashville earlier this summer and they are seriously so much fun to just be around.  I think their family agrees and everyone at this wedding knew how to party.  Gonna miss these guys!

kim + phil // nashville engagement

It’s been a long and busy spring season (thankfully), and shortly after returning from my South American trip to Brazil, I had a super fantastic session in Nashville with Kim + Phil. These two lovebirds are getting married later this year in Tucson and I really cannot wait for their wedding! On the culture & fun scale, Nashville > Tucson. Easy. We even got to see Tim McGraw & Kenny Chesney performing at a live concert there, although it was about 1/2 mile away and we could see it from a bridge, but nonetheless, I feel like I’ve finally seen Nashville :) Congrats to Kim + Phil!!

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!

SierraD-051

sierra // senior

It was a rather windy day, but at least it wasn’t scorching hot!  I had a great session with Sierra out in the Vail area, and we finished in downtown Tucson with some areas that had lots of color.  Sierra is definitely a natural, thanks Sierra!

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!

lauren // senior

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!

SharonF-044

sharon // senior

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!

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!

ErinDean-E-002

erin + dean // engaged

Erin + Dean are FUN.  They are madly in love, and they know how to joke around and laugh, a LOT.  Downtown tucson is always a great place, but I’m really really glad we were able to try a new spot on Mt. Lemmon which was just absolutely gorgeous!  Really excited for their wedding this coming spring, can’t wait!  Thanks Erin & Dean!

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!

emily // senior

Emily has an amazing talent for dance.  Not only is she great with jazz, but her ballet skills are just incredible!  I think “pointe” is one of the most amazing things humans can do, and Emily rocks it big time.  We started in a wash, a perfect clash to a beautiful ballet dancer, then went downtown and finished up at her school for some more dance portraits.  I must say, I kind of want to go see a ballet thanks to her!  Thanks again Emily!

michael // senior

Michael is an awesome senior from Benson who loves photography and technology. We explored downtown Tucson and found some awesome new locations! It was another warm summer day as we roamed the streets, but it was worth it. We got great pictures and had a great time!

JordanJ-035

jordan // senior

Jordan is an awesome senior who has lived in Saudi Arabia most of her life and now goes to school in New Hampshire. She came all the way to Tucson for her portraits! We had a great time and great weather at Tanque Verde Guest Ranch and then headed down town and ended the day with a classic Arizona sunset! Thanks, Jordan!
