Downtown Chandler Senior Pictures
Being in the heart of Chandler, Arizona, Hamilton High School seniors often choose Downtown Chandler as their favorite location for senior pictures. There is a ton of variety and the surrounding areas are so much fun! We can find everything from rustic to green to urban—Plus it is a great place to shoot senior pictures at night!
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.
Senior Photos for Gymnasts
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.
I also recommend that gymnasts bring chalk and grips, as well as medals. Bri was the all-around champion at Westerns during her senior year, so she chose to bring those medals, and of course her competition leo was the perfect attire!
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
- Wipes (to clean up after our chalk fun!)
Briana not only had senior pictures during the day, but we continued shooting after dark to get even more gorgeous images for her gallery. Check out her night time senior pictures right here—trust me, you don’t want to miss these so you’ll great ideas for your senior pictures too!
