Downtown Chandler Senior Pictures

Senior pictures in Downtown Chandler and the surrounding areas are so much fun! There is such variety. We can find everything from rustic to green to urban! Plus it is a great place to shoot senior pictures at night! 

Graffiti Walls

Graffiti walls are very popular for senior pictures, so we found this fun wall with lots of options. Keep in mind, this is just off the side of the road. As with many of my favorite places, there isn’t really an address or specific parking, which is why I prefer to load everything in my van and go together.

Including Your Car for Senior Pictures

Below you can see another image that includes more of the wall, as well as our next stop, which included Briana’s Jeep. I love the simple clothing she chose! If you’re unsure about what to wear for senior pictures, simple is best. I love the cute tank top and white shorts. It’s a great contrast with the black Jeep! And as always, bring your sunglasses! 

Over the years, many of my favorite locations have been demolished. Such is the case near Downtown Chandler. Instead, we found a dead end road and with a little Photoshop help to remove fences, you’d never know! Photoshop also came in handy for the Jeep pictures since there was a small dent. 

So Beautiful! 

Bri is a very talented gymnast and I was able to convince her to do some jumps for me. The result is this gorgeous silhouette taken at Tumbleweed Park in Chandler. This is the perfect example of being able to image the outcome before you click the shutter. Check out our Facebook page or Instagram to see the before and after of this shot!

I also recommend that gymnasts bring chalk and grips, as well as medals. Bri was the all-around champion at Westerns last year, so she chose to bring those medals.

Checklist for Gymnasts

I’ve photographed many gymnasts over the years and here is the list that I use. Place chalk in a Ziploc bag, then put that bag zipped into another bag. Let’s just say I’ve learned from experience. Cleaning up spilled chalk isn’t easy!

  • Competition Leotard
  • Warm Ups
  • Grips
  • Chalk
  • Medals
  • Wipes (to clean up after our chalk fun!)

Queen Creek Senior Pictures

Coming up on 10 years as a senior portrait photographer, I wanted to share some of my favorite gymnastics pictures. Kenzie Douglas is 2014 graduate of Queen Creek high school and I thought it would be fabulous to share some of her accomplishments since then!

I asked Kenzie’s mom Laura for a quick update, since I knew she was now a college graduate and had started law school! I’m so proud of her! I’ve actually known Kenzie since she was about 14 or 15 years old, when she was on the same gymnastics team as our daughter. It is absolutely incredible to watch my seniors grow up and be so successful!

Kenzie had a very successful D1 gymnastics full ride scholarship at BYU. She graduated in April of 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. She is now attending Cleveland-Marshall College of Law at Cleveland State University. When she’s not at the library she enjoys spending time with her new rescue dog, Theodore Roosevelt, aka Teddy.  Her future goals will hopefully be doing something in the political world.

These silhouettes were actually shot on a different day that Kenzie’s senior photo shoot, but are still some of my absolute favorites!

 

Tumbleweed Park

While Tumbleweed Park is often used as a more rustic location, it doesn’t have to be! It worked great for Kenzie using one of her favorite tops and adorable Miss Me jeans!

I created this beautiful storyboard for Kenzie which included a great closeup of her favorite boots.

Chandler Senior Portraits

I don’t know how I missed this, but in going back through my blog I realized I never shared Kelci’s senior portraits! So yes it is late (very late!), but how can I not share these images of this beautiful young lady? Kelci is a Perry high school graduate who received a full scholarship to Bryant University!!! Now that she’s done with her sophomore year of college, I can say I’m even more proud of her! I can’t tell you how often this talented diver breaks records and wins meets with her team!

Styling Ideas For Senior Girls

Anyway, I remember her session well even though it has been a couple of years now. Mom wanted wildflowers, Kelci wanted water, I knew it would be amazing!!! We headed out super early one morning, Kelci was quite the trooper. We shot for nearly 2 hours and incorporated everything from her dive medals and gear to her perfect spring wardrobe! They even brought along her cruiser bike! Oh, and the flowers!!! How could I forget those? Just a simple colorful bouquet, but it really was a stunning, colorful addition! I encourage all my seniors to bring anything their heart desires. I’ve seen everything from animals, favorite outfits, props, buckets full of shoes, long boards, and more! These are definitely some of my favorite sessions! Watching these young adults really show off makes my heart smile every time!

Kelci’s styling was exceptional!  Her beautiful blonde curls just flowed and worked well with the blue hat from our style closet. She chose a colorful bouquet, which was different from other flowers I’ve used for props.  And I love getting new ideas!

Style Closet

These senior portraits prove that you don’t always need a spectacular location.  This here?  This is a ditch off the side of the road that happened to have some color.  Of course, it takes the right lens and proper styling to really make it work.  This hat and scarf from our style closet worked perfectly with Kelci’s spring dress!

Include Your Favorite Sport

Being a diver, of course Kelci wanted to incorporate water into her senior portrait session.  Well, this waterfall was exactly what she was looking for!  She had no problems standing knee deep in the water and splashing either!  While I love the gorgeous smiles, I also love having my seniors be in a relaxed environment.  That is why most of our sessions take place weekdays, so that we don’t deal with a lot of people around.

Ohhhhh, those beautiful lashes!!!  No wonder I love my seniors!  Kelci and her mom were so much fun and willing do do anything!  This image actually was just a test shot.  I was setting up for the glitter shot and Kelci was carefully picking through the glitter in her hands.

Products to Show Off Your Senior Portraits

And to top it all off, the products Kelci chose were amazing!!! Mom got a beautiful heirloom quality 20×20 gallery storyboard showcasing her favorite images.  Kelci chose my personal favorite, a custom senior portrait magazine, which has all of her session images. They also chose a smaller 8×8 storyboard to display in her dorm room. Then we designed beautiful custom graduation announcements to use for the open house. Her parents also wanted to share information about Kelci’s scholarship, so for the first time I was able to order small, double-sided square inserts with the exciting college information on one side and an image on the other side. So unique and useful, exactly what they wanted! I love that I’m able to design and order so many custom products, all depending on what each client requests. It makes the entire senior portrait experience special for each family.

Heirloom Quality Products Chandler Photographer

Custom Storyboard Collages

This is one of our best selling items for high school seniors!  Our storyboards come in many sizes, but this 20×20 storyboard is definitely a client favorite!  It allows our seniors and families to choose 9 of their favorite images and can be printed with a beveled edge for a timeless look.  The smaller storyboard, an 8×8 of Kelci’s favorites, is our deluxe mounted storyboard.  This thick mount ensures that your products will last for generations to come!

Custom Senior Magazine

Ok, what girl doesn’t want to be a cover girl???  Now they can!  This senior magazine is 20 pages and allows you to show off your entire senior portrait session and makes a great keepsake! Everything is personalized; titles, stories, patterns, and colors!  During your Revel & Design Session, you may see a sample cover.  This is one piece that is not designed right away, but you’ll receive a proof of the entire magazine before it is ordered from our fine art facility.

Chandler Senior Photographer

These same Chandler locations are very popular for graduation pictures!  Even though the sessions take place in the same areas, your senior pictures will be unique and we’ll be sure to showcase your talents and individuality! Donovan was very passionate about soccer, so we made sure to have him bring his gear.  Mom wanted some beautiful pictures to remember this once-in-a-lifetime achievement. Our goal is create timeless portraits that will make your senior photo shoot memorable and create fun keepsakes that everyone will love!

These metals are a stunning way to showcase your high school athlete!  This is a shaped metal print (shown by the outline) and has a metal easel So it is easy to display in your home or office.  At your pre-session consultation you’ll be able to see samples of shaped metals and our other signature products.

Metal Print Portraits Chandler, AZ

Since graduation, Donovan’s mom, Julie, has moved.  So I asked her to send a picture of the metal displayed in her home, and even though his senior pictures were taken nearly 4 years ago, the pictures are in her living room and she shared this with me.  The shaped metals come standard with an easel on the back, but as another alternative, the easel can be folded in and the metal storyboard looks beautiful displayed in an easel that matches your decor!

Downtown Chandler Senior Pictures with Soccer Player

It is very rare that I’m nervous about a senior portrait session, but I have to admit I did have a few butterflies before Donovan’s session. He wasn’t very interested in having pictures done, but was willing to make his mom happy. I know better than to try to convince a teenager, but once I mentioned bringing his dog and his soccer gear things got better. He is a master on the soccer field, even though he doesn’t play much anymore due to injury. It is always more fun for me when my seniors are doing what they love…after all, it comes naturally to them! So I was ecstatic to capture some great shots of Donovan showing off his soccer skills, loving his dog Spyro, and hanging out at the railroad tracks. With some serious time management skills we even made it over to shoot some images at Tumbleweed Park in Chandler! I was amazed…4 locations in just about 2 hours! Mom admitted that she’s typically not very emotional, but even she started to tear up a little when she saw these final images. Every photographer’s dream is to make families happy. Mission accomplished!

Chaparral High School Senior Portrait Session

Senior guys are such fun and William really did not disappoint! We captured so many memories in this session…everything from snowboarding and wrestling to his beloved Pikachu and matching outfit! I’m pretty sure not many guys could pull off the Pikachu outfit and look as awesome as William did! As if that weren’t enough, he had a few snazzy outfits including a sport coat and tie! We roamed all over Chandler for nearly two hours, and had such a great time! I don’t know if I’ve ever had a senior boy with so many unique ideas. The back of my van was packed!!! We wandered through downtown Chandler getting some great urban shots, then to a fun graffiti wall. Then we headed to Tumbleweed Park for some amazing shots with his letter jacket (he lettered in wrestling at Chaparral High School) and finished up just after sunset at the railroad tracks. Phew! This is definitely one of my favorite senior galleries because of all the variety.
