Aliah: Ironwood 2015 Senior

Oh my goodness! The time has finally arrived! Meet Aliah, one of my seniors from Ironwood High School. She is so sweet and beautiful right!? Despite a bit of a rushed morning, and her telling me that she didn’t feel like she had put on her best face; I think that she totally rocked her session! She has a smile that can light up a room. She is incredibly smart and has big dreams for her future. She wants to study biomedical engineering and hopefully be a part of the proccess of constructing new medical technologies such as artifical hearts and limbs to help others. She absolutely loves science and get so excited about experiements, nature, and animals. Despite her love for her animals I think we can agree that mosquitos are not our favorite bug. Our adventures in downtown Glendale we got eaten alive! I just chalk it up to the fact that we must have been so sweet that day! I am so excited that she loved how her pictures turned out, and I can’t wait to see what her future holds for her. NO matter what she will Make sure to leave this pretty girl some love.

Breanna C.

Breanna is a senior at Ironwood High School, she was my first 2015 senior session I did this year and had a blast battling the heat and taking some beautiful pictures of this sweet girl! I meet Breanna 2 years ago, my first year working at Ironwood. A very sweet kid, but I saw her a lot because she was never in class. Last year I moved to the library and she was always in there (again avoiding class) but helping me do whatever random thing I needed help with!! I am really glad that I have gotten the opportunity to get to know her, especially this past year. She didn’t really have a choice in the matter with who was going to take her senior pictures, this was our first session of several taken at Heritage Square, Downtown Phoenix. I am so excited to be a part of her senior year and I can’t wait to see what amazing things she does in the future.

Heidi is 15 Months!

This beautiful baby girl is Heidi. She just turned 15 months. Talk about a gorgeous girl with beautiful blue eyes and a girl on the move. We met up at CCV for a mini session and Heidi was so fascinated with all the stuff around, all the grass and room to run that it was a game of capture the baby to get her to sit still! Despite letting her run around I did manage to get some great shots of her, and capture those amazing eyes she eye. Watch out mom-heart breaker in the making!

Keyser Sister Session

Chastity, Teriney, and Journey….I know what you are thinking very unique names; but these girls were all sweet and very unique. Teriney attends Ironwood and after several failed attempts, a hail storm, spring break, and busy schedules we were finally able to get together to take some pictures of just the 3 of them! We met up at Encanto park and while it was a very busy Sunday I managed to get some great group and individuals shots of the girls for their mom to enjoy. I was finally able to get their session completed today due to a busy schedule but they are up and I think the girls and their mom are super excited!!! Please make sure to leave them some love

Brooklyn’s Senior Session

Brooklyn a senior at Ironwood High School is involved in cheer, dance, and even the COOP program at Ironwood. This little darling comes into the library all the time requesting that items get laminated for COOP, and I just sigh and say ‘Sure Brooklyn”. I was incredibly thrilled for the opportunity to go out and photograph Brooklyn as this chapter in her life comes to a close. Brooklyn was more of the you tell me where to go and I will show up type, so we decided on CCV as a location. I love the combination of grass and texture and desert and water…not to mention the staff there is always very pleasant when I show up early in the mornings to photograph!! The funniest moment of this entire session was probably when I was trying to get Brooklyn to squat down and the first time we did this she couldn’t do it!!! But don’t worry by the end of the session she got the hang of it!! Be sure to leave her some love!!!

Annika’s Senior Session

Annika is a senior at Peoria High School, Class of 2014. I was super excited when you mom had called me to schedule Annika’s senior pictures. She had gotten my name as a referral from one of my other Peoria seniors. I had the opportunity to sit and talk with Annika and her mom to discuss her vision of senior pictures and what it was she thought she wanted. We talked and she showed me images and Pinterest of course and the conclusion we came to was downtown and urban. She likes architecture and different textures, so of course we decided on dowtown Phoenix. I think her mom was a little uncertain of me in the beginning when the very first thing I wanted Annika to do was climb on a ledge on the side of a building and she may have unintentionally gotten a bit dirty!!! However, throughout Annika was a total trooper and she dealt beautifully with dirt, dark tunnels, and outrageous wind!! She was a trooper, I kept telling her mom that is always an adventure with me! Make sure to leave her some love on her senior session!

Veronica & Nicole

I have known Veronica and Nicole for a few years now; we all first met while working at Hollister together. These two girls are full of life and personality; they are beautiful on the inside and the out. It was most challenging getting these two to sit still and smile because when together they are nothing but laughs and giggles! I always enjoy being around these ladies, they can’t help but put you in a good mood. Check out their blog from a hidden oasis in Glendale, make sure to leave them some love!!
