Downtown Chandler with Red Mountain High School Senior

I had talked with Spencer’s mom, Julie, a few times prior to his senior portrait session. She has some equipment and knowledge about photography, but sometimes it really is easier to hire a professional. Spencer had a tight schedule between classes at Red Mountain High School and his track practice, but we managed to find a late afternoon to take him out to some great Chandler locations for his senior pictures. We started out downtown in order to get some cool urban shots. One of Spencer’s requests was graffiti, so I made sure we squeezed that in before heading to the train tracks. We were lucky enough to have even more graffiti on the trains that day, so it was just perfect! Then we headed to Tumbleweed for some more rustic images where we could catch Spencer’s amazing smile and also give him a chance to show off his cowboy boots. I was thrilled with the results when his final gallery had all of the great locations and everything from urban to rustic in one photo shoot!  We don’t like to rush, so we make sure there is time for multiple locations and outfit changes so your gallery will be unique.  Congratulations, Spencer!

What do I remember most? I remember Spencer getting out of the car and my first thought was “yes, I’m definitely going to need a ladder!” Only to be told that Spencer is not even the tallest person in his family!

Senior Pictures at Tumbleweed Park

This old truck is a favorite of many senior guys and no matter how many times I use it, the results are always different!  Every guy has his own take on clothing and expressions, making it a unique addition to your senior portrait gallery!  Spencer’s serious gaze in this image made the perfect editorial black & white picture!

High School Senior Pictures:  A Memorable Experience

Most guys that are graduating from high school say they don’t want a full senior portrait session.  But they really do, they just want it to be fun and not like the typical portrait session you’ve probably imagined!  Or maybe you’ve had a portrait session that was rushed and stressful.  When we take the time to get to know you, we can capture amazing moments, real laughter, and create beautiful images your family will love!  After all, you know you’ll always be her little boy, so make Mom happy and let’s remember this once in a lifetime senior experience!

Rustic Senior Pictures

I love boots and they fit so perfectly with Spencer’s personality!  Not only do we take many pictures of you, but we also make sure to get some great detail shots!  They work great as accents for metal prints or storyboards and they make the perfect backgrounds for graduation announcements, albums, and senior magazines!

Cap and gown pics are some of my faves because I’m super proud of all the young adults I get to know who are just setting out on their journeys in life. I love capturing the joy, the excitement, and even the nervousness of what lies ahead for all of them.
