A couple of weeks ago, I met up with incredibly talented Lois Zozobrado for a quick shoot for an upcoming article in Chandler Lifestyle Magazine. I’ve now been in the East Valley for just over a year, but this is the first time I’ve had an opportunity to shoot in Downtown Chandler. I’m kind of in love! We decided to aim for just after sunrise so the temps were cooler, and the crowds lighter. The crowds were not only lighter, but they were completely non-existent, which was perfect! We pretty much had the run of downtown all to ourselves, and still didn’t even scratch the surface of all of the interesting and unique backdrops in the historic downtown district. I absolutely cannot wait to go back and explore more nooks and crannies. Downtown Chandler is an awesome backdrop for senior photo sessions, but also for smaller families.  And the sunrise light, oh my, so beautiful! If the life sized CHANDLER sign on city hall is on your bucket list for Fall photos, sunrise is best time for perfect light.

Here is a little sneak peek of our session! Be sure to subscribe to Chandler Lifestyle’s digital subscription to see the full article in the August edition, and read all about this amazing local teen’s accomplishments.

ASU Polytechnic Senior Grad Photos

It’s ASU graduation session around here! As an Arizona State University graduate myself, I get so excited for all of the newly minted alumni heading out into the wold with open eyes and a bright future, and hopefully some amazing senior photos! If you were too busy actually studying, and senior photos slipped your mind, its not too late! Who says you can’t throw that cap and gown back on for one more fun afternoon on campus? Each of the ASU campuses has its own character and fabulous well known landmarks, perfect for highlighting your time here. The Polytechnic campus in Mesa has the water tower, modern architecture, and even an airfield! Tempe campus highlights include Old Main, Palm Walk, Wells Fargo area and the giant year sign, and Mill Ave. Downtown Phoenix campus boasts modern art, and an urban landscape that is uniquely Phoenix.

As your big day approaches, be sure to get your session booked as soon as you know when you’ll get that cap and gown,  to grab the best dates. Senior photo season is so short, and those dates fill up fast!

East Valley Senior Photos

It’s May, that wonderful season where flowers bloom, Summer is right around the corner, and a new class of seniors heads out into the world to conquer amazing things! This adorable girl and I had a blast during her senior photo session, checking two super colorful and funky locations in the East Valley. First stop was the Gilbert Art Wall. This amazing backdrop is the wall of a very sweet gal’s property where she provides a space for street artists to showcase their work, and for photographers to bring their clients. It is amazingly kind and generous of her and such a fun space! The art changes periodically, there is a blank space right now and I cannot wait to see what goes in next! Our next stop was Mesa Arts Center. I LOVE love love love this space. I cannot get enough of it! If you are looking for something different from the typical park/cdesert/mountains look, this is the place. There are so many interesting and colorful corners, you just can’t fit it all into one session. The yellow wall and spinning chairs are my hands down favorite!

If you haven’t booked your senior photos, you’ve been waiting to get your hands on a cap and gown, or you are a junior getting a jump on the next year, now is the time! And better yet, grab up to 2 friends and combine your sessions to save Mom and Dad a little dough that they can spend on your graduation gift later!

Sometimes getting the stars to align for your dream senior photo session is a little tricky. It took about 3 months and a dozen emails for us to squeeze in a session date during Jenny’s trip to Orange County for a softball tournament, but we were determined to make it work! And work it did… we were so lucky to have most of the beach all to ourselves. Braving a climb over a few rocks and dodging the surf with perfect timing rewarded us handsomely. Aliso Beach is one of those hidden gems that has surprises around every corner. From surf pounding on the rocks, to stone cliffs, to unique cliffside landscaping, and even a park with a perfect little fence, there are so many gorgeous backdrops to choose from. Not only that, but this beautiful beach is constantly changing thanks to the surf eroding and restoring the sand and rocks throughout the year.

You’d never know this hard working senior spent her day on the softball field, before getting glammed up for our beach session, she looks amazing! Softball tournament, family vacation, or even tagging along on Mom or Dad’s work trip, if you can find your way to the beach, we’ll find a perfect date that works and capture those senior portraits you’re dreaming of!

Ceilidh’s mom and I have been partners in crime, volunteering and having fun together for several years. So when I heard that Ceilidh was heading straight off to an internship with Walt Disney World  after graduation from Cal State Long Beach, I was super excited because we just HAD to take some senior photos at my favorite place in the world – Disneyland! We lucked out and the crowds were light and the rain held off just long enough. Good luck with your internship Ceilidh, I know you will ROCK it!! Also, I might be just a smidgen jealous that you get to live at Disney World. Just a smidge.

Have you booked your Class of 2016 senior photos yet? Be sure to give me a call before the year gets away from you! And Class of 2017 – time to start getting on the schedule!! I get TONS of requests for senior photos at Disneyland, and unfortunately a lot of times it’s just not possible because clients already have solid vacation plans for a date that just won’t work. Here are some quick tips if YOU are dreaming of a Disneyland senior photo session.

1 – Don’t plan on a Saturday, in the summer, right next to a holiday. It’s crazy in the park, and the heat – oy!! Crowds make it very difficult, and I do not usually accept bookings for Disneyland sessions from July 1 through late August, on any major holidays, Thanksgiving week, or the week from Christmas Eve until New Year’s Day for that reason.

2 – Do plan a weekday, during a slower time of year, in the morning. (And be sure to keep in mind when holiday decor will be up if you don’t want Senior Photos – Halloween/Christmas edition!).  I start Disneyland sessions right when the gates open, which gives us better light and the lightest crowds, and I am happy to give you some ideas of the best time of year to book.

3- Don’t plan on bringing your cap and gown (your sash or honors cords are fine), wearing formal wear (no prom dresses), bringing several outfits, anything on a hanger, curling irons, flat irons, or props of any kind (except anything you buy in the park – like Mickey ears :-). Park rules – you’ll be stopped at the gate and told to take it back to you car and that will cut in to our shooting time. *sad face*  Plus, you’ll want to travel light as we’ll be making tracks around the parks. Only bring what you can fit in a backpack that you’ll be ok carrying for 2+ hours.

4 – Do plan to bring mom (or dad). Any seniors under the age of 18 MUST have a parent book their session and have their parent with them during the entire session. No exceptions. Sorry, I know, lame, but it’s necessary.

5 – Do respect the Land and bring lots of patience. I cannot and will not block walkways, break park rules, or affect another guest’s experience in any way. No blowing glitter or throwing confetti, or any other mayhem that makes a mess, and no climbing into planters or other areas where guests are not permitted. And I am not willing to honor any requests otherwise. It’s my happy place… I aim to keep it that way. ❤️
