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!
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.
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.
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!
Knowing how important our furry family members are, this storyboard feature his favorite senior photos is a beautiful keepsake for your high school senior. So go ahead, bring your furry family member along for your senior pictures! We love dogs!!
Scottsdale Senior Photographer’s Favorite Locations
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.
Custom Products Our High School Seniors Love!
William made it so easy, and the final products are just amazing! First is one of our most popular products, the mounted storyboard. These are available in many sizes including this 16×16 showcasing some of his favorite images from his photo shoot. William’s family also ordered beautiful heirloom prints and custom graduation announcements.
Oh, and the metal! William’s 8×12 metal curve is just amazing! Our metals one of the most popular products for our senior guys. We added a touch of grunge texture to one of his detail shots and it turned out perfectly!
