WINTER IN THE DESERT SENIOR PORTRAITS WITH KARI, CLASS OF 2012

I already posted Kari’s stunning [senior portrait editorial], but I still wanted to play around with some of her images. The setting and feel of the shoot definitely gave me the vibe of some strong black and white portraits. The abandoned bridge over the dried up lake has got to be one of my new favorite locations in my hometown. Kari, is stunning.

Now booking Class of 2012 & 2013 – [SEND ME AN EMAIL] for more information and availability.

Meet Karelia (or Kari for short). The air was crisp and cold for this awesome senior portrait session down in Arizona. Her stunning natural beauty and grace was highlighted by the glow of the crisp air and surrounding desert in the winter. Like most girls, she was super nervous at first, but soon realized that I am all about having fun.

She also realized how crazy I am when it comes to shooting. Driving along when all of the sudden I would stop and yell “HERE!” and make her pose in the middle of a dry river bed, an abandoned lake bridge or in the street with oncoming traffic.

These images were edited using the new VSCO film presets and they came out absolutely stunning.

Arizona Senior Portraits // Andrea Class of 2011

Andrea (or “Karina” as our family knows her) was one of my first ever models back in the day. When I first started playing around with Photography, my sister and her were my two guinea pigs. You can tell from her senior portrait session below that she knows how to work that camera like a pro. I absolutely loved this session for two reasons. One, because she brought her A-game to the shoot. Second, because while we were shooting around an old wine gallery, the owner saw us and invited us to shoot inside his new wine cellar/bar/bistro. It isn’t open to the public yet, so the fact that we got to go inside and explore made the session so much more fun!!

The grow up so fast.
