High School Graduation for Alivia

I recently had a senior photo session with Alivia, a senior from Queen Creek Virtual Academy, who’s all about bringing her unique style to the spotlight. With a dream job in mechanics and a love for all things vintage, she’s not your average senior.

Knowing Alivia’s upcoming graduation was a big deal, I wanted every detail to reflect her journey. As a Queen Creek senior photographer, I discussed her preferences and interests, from her love for cars to her passion for music and fashion. With these insights, I chose locations and props that would bring her personality to life.

From the urban vibes of downtown Gilbert to the nighttime glamour of Chandler, I captured Alivia’s personality in every shot. Get ready to dive into a session filled with red Mustangs, disco balls, and a whole lot of personality!

The Classic Graduation Cap and Gown

No graduation photo shoot is complete without the iconic cap and gown moment. It’s like the cherry on top, symbolizing all the late-night study sessions and hard-earned successes. In the classic cap and gown photos, Alivia rocks her graduation look with pure confidence and excitement. With her cap at a jaunty angle and her gown draped effortlessly, she’s all set to conquer the world. Against the backdrop of brick walls, there’s this timeless vibe that screams, “I did it!” These pics perfectly capture the essence of a big moment and the thrill of what’s next for her.

Starting the shoot with Alivia in her graduation cap and gown made perfect sense for a few reasons. Firstly, it set the tone for the entire session, emphasizing the significance of this milestone moment in her life. By capturing these traditional images first, I ensured we didn’t miss out on any essential shots that are expected in senior photo sessions.

Plus, wearing the cap and gown at the beginning allowed Alivia to ease into the shoot and get comfortable in front of the camera, setting a confident and positive tone for the rest of the session.

Please Bring the Car

When I sat down with Alivia to plan her photo shoot, it was clear that her love for cars ran deep. I was really hoping she had a fun car, and my wish was granted! Enter her cherry-red Mustang convertible with a customized license plate reading “Hottie.” As soon as she stepped next to it, Alivia transformed, radiating confidence and grace in her sleek black outfit.

But that car meant more to her than just a vehicle. It symbolized her dreams of becoming a mechanic and her determination to carve out a path in the automotive world. Against the backdrop of the bustling urban streets, I captured Alivia’s unique essence—a perfect blend of style and ambition, poised to take on whatever challenges come her way.

And speaking of challenges, Alivia’s love for cars isn’t just confined to real life—it extends to the big screen, too. Her favorite movie? Fast and Furious, of course. It’s no surprise, given her adventurous spirit and thrill for speed.

Alongside her passion for cars, Alivia harbors a deep desire to travel, explore new horizons, and experience different cultures. It’s this combination of daring dreams and grounded aspirations that makes Alivia’s story so captivating and her future journey so promising.

As an experienced senior portrait photographer with hundreds of senior sessions under my belt, I can safely say Alivia is one of my favorites. I was absolutely thrilled to capture this aspect of her personality since it showcases her passion and future aspirations in a single click.

A Flash of Red and Night Lights

In this next shot, Alivia shines in a breathtaking red dress, illuminated by the flash against a backdrop of blurred night lights in a parking area filled with vehicles. It’s a striking contrast that perfectly captures her love for clothes and her vibrant personality. The color of her dress, reminiscent of her favorite Kit-Kat treat, adds a playful touch to the scene, tying in her personal preferences with her sense of style.

With each click of the camera, Alivia’s passion for fashion comes to life, showcasing her unique flair and love for making a statement.

Now Trending: Disco Balls!

Check out this awesome shot of Alivia! She’s rocking her love for music, holding up a disco ball against a bold red backdrop. And can we talk about her sharp dress? Total confidence! She’s all about that rock vibe, with Sublime pumping through her veins. This particular photo is like a party celebrating her love for music and being herself. Surrounded by those disco ball lights, she’s shining brighter than ever, feeling the beat and loving every moment!

And you’d never know this was taken against a brick wall in a parking lot, at the very end of her session! The creativity doesn’t stop until you do!

Love for Fashion

In this photo, Alivia totally owns her unique style with a customized outfit that’s so her. Rocking a short off-white skirt and a classic black Ed Hardy tee, she’s all about that thrifting life. And those Doc Martens? They’re the cherry on top, adding that extra edge to her trendy look! Showing off her model vibes and adding some laid-back charm, Alivia’s outfit screams confidence and individuality. It’s just her being herself and showing off what she loves most—thrifting and putting together killer outfits that make her feel awesome!

No Homework for Mom

Following every session, we’ll schedule your ordering session, where you’ll choose your favorite images and select artwork that works in your home. Gone are the days of handing Mom a USB or just downloading a gallery of images! Nope, not here! With Alivia being the 2nd grad in the family, I knew her mom would want products to match her son, Aidan. But this isn’t just any box—it’s a treasure chest for your senior memories! We customized Alivia’s box with her favorite images, name, and graduation year proudly displayed. This image box houses a carefully selected assortment of their favorite senior photos. Each print is double sided, giving you twice as many pictures, preserved inside, guaranteeing that your precious memories stay safe and easily accessible for years to come. Plus, you can keep it anywhere, from your bedside to your desk at work or living room. Swap out the print, flip them around, and you’ll have endless opportunities to show off your favorite senior pictures.

But wait, there’s more! What about the walls? Both Alivia and Aidan have gorgeous storyboards that also showcase some of their favorite photos. Alivia, of course, chose the darling picture of her tassel hanging out of her jeans for the center image, then surrounded it with 6 more of her favorites.

Where to Print Senior Pictures

But I want to SHARE my images! Well yes, of course you do. Don’t panic, I got you! Alivia’s family still received the digital images on a USB for safe keeping, as well as a personalized mobile app that allows her to share her photos to social media. My collections have digital and physical artwork that everyone will love!

Arizona has some beautiful locations for senior pictures in the East Valley. Recently, I talked to Marissa, who graduated from Red Mountain High School in 2020.

From a photographer's point of view, San Tan Village in Gilbert, Arizona, is a modern, open-air space that’s full of opportunity. It's a venue that's quaintly decorated with charming lighting, eclectic chairs, textured walls, modern patterns, unique storefronts, and a pretty footprint that provides lots of symmetry and lines for framing the perfect shot.
