Fun Gilbert Senior Photoshoot

Caroline's senior session in Downtown Gilbert was a delightful blend of vintage charm and personal flair. Her retro-inspired outfits, complete with bright red lipstick, perfectly complemented the historic backdrop near Hale Centre Theatre. With meaningful props and a playful spirit, Caroline's unique style and personality truly shone through.

Caroline is such an amazing young lady who came fully prepared for her senior pictures, knowing exactly what she wanted. We had so many ideas and outfits for her shoot that I lost track—and I know we didn’t use everything! Initially, I wasn’t 100% certain what the results would be since Caroline loves food, cooking, and will be attending culinary school in the fall. I had never incorporated food into senior pictures before, so I was hoping for some guidance. Thankfully, Caroline and her mom really pulled through!

They arrived with great styling, multiple outfits, a cute cupcake stand, a picnic basket, lots of gourmet desserts, and even a perfect pastry from Casita Coffee that we grabbed at the last minute! Caroline also loves theater, so shooting in Downtown Gilbert near Hale Theatre Arizona provided the perfect backdrop. She rocked everything about this session, from her beautiful clothing choices and fun shoes to her perfect red lipstick and even one of her theater costumes!

Meaningful Props and Clothing

Caroline’s session was extra special with this amazing red cape, handmade by her grandmother. Not only was it gorgeous, but it also produced two beautiful heirloom canvas portraits. Caroline’s family will display one in their home and gift the other to her grandmother who made the beautiful cape.

I know how stressful senior year is, so let me help with that! Not only can I create beautiful keepsakes and gifts, I also design and print beautiful graduation announcements and thank you cards. This beautiful girl graduated from Gilbert Classical Academy, with plans to attend culinary school.

These 5×7 cards are double-sided and designed with custom foil. The back is a full sized 5×7 image that is perfect for framing! What a great way to share these memories with friends and family!

  • I love her style and it truly shines in her senior portraits. I am so happy her family also chose art work for their walls. They will treasure those so much when she’s away at school.
