Meet Sarah. She is a senior that I recently photographed.
We went to Sahuaro Ranch Park, and then to her home.
She likes ballet and her bird, Daisy. We didn't do any ballet
shots because she has tons of them already. But we did show
Sarah's personality through all of the hundreds of shots taken.
These are some of my favorites...

This next one has to be my favorite of the shoot...she loved
Little House on the Prarie growing up, and this looks like
a shot from those books. She looks like Laura Ingalls from
the t.v. show, doesn't she?

I took Lillian's senior portraits a few days before Christmas. With the holidays and workload, I am just now getting to blogging them. Lillian wanted to go to Encanto Park, which was a great choice, except the amusement park area that we wanted to use was closed. But we made do with all the park's scenery and historical buildings. It was a group of us, Lillian had her best friend and boyfriend there, and I had an assistant there helping with the lighting. We ran out of sunlight towards the end due to a late start and overcast sky. We had a good time, and here are our results!

Katie and Kaya

This past Sunday, my daughter and her friend wanted me
to take them on a modeling type of shoot for fun. We were
just out to be creative and have a good time. These
are our results-- a blast of colors and looks!
