Downtown Gilbert Senior Pictures

Caroline, such an amazing young lady, came prepared for her senior pictures knowing exactly what she wanted. We had so many ideas and so many outfits for her photo shoot that I lost track and I know we didn’t use everything! The funny part is that going into the session, I actually wasn’t 100% certain what the results would be. Caroline is a foodie, loves to cook, and will be attending culinary school in the fall. I have never incorporated food into senior pictures like this before, so I was hoping for some guidance. Thankfully Caroline and her mom really pulled through!

They came prepared with great styling, multiple outfits, a cute cupcake stand, a picnic basket, lots of little gourmet desserts, and the best part was a perfect pastry from Bergie’s Coffee House that we grabbed at the last minute! Caroline also loves the theater, so shooting in Downtown Gilbert near Hale Centre Theatre made for the perfect backdrop! She rocked everything about this session, from the beautiful clothing choices, fun shoes, and perfect red lipstick! She even had one of her theater costumes! We also tried out a new product available to my clients…matching custom graduation announcements and thank you cards, and I love how they turned out! I’ve done custom grad cards for years, but these thank you cards are just another wonderful way to share senior pictures with your friends and family. This beautiful girl graduated from Gilbert Classical Academy in May! I can’t wait about her adventures at culinary school!

Meaningful Props and Clothing

This amazing red cape, handmade by her grandmother, gave her session extra sentimental meaning. Did I mention it was gorgeous and produced not one, but two beautiful heirloom canvas portraits? Caroline’s family will be displaying one in their home, and giving the other as a gift to Caroline’s grandmother who made the beautiful cape.

I loved seeing all the ideas for cheer senior pictures Aracely had to offer! From smiles to serious looks to a few bold and sassy expressions, she’s got it all—and she’s not afraid to share it with the camera.

Today I've asked Christina Hayes from Nizhoni Day Spa to help us out with some information about spray tans. If you've looked through any of my photo shoot prep materials, you'll know that self-tanners are a big no-no! Christina's beautiful spray tans though, wow!!! They blend beautifully with your skin tones and give you a natural glow!

When I asked Ashley about her favorite activities and sports in school, she enthusiastically told me about her involvement in cheerleading, so of course we had to capture some memories of her in her Warriors cheer uniform, complete with silver and red poms and a bow on the side!

Welcome! I’m your bestie behind the camera! Lots of great info, so hang out for awhile!
