Kimy, Scottsdale BASIS Senior | Phoenix, AZ Senior Photographer

This is Miss Kimy. She has nooo idea how incredibly gorgeous and amazing she is. She's a musician, a philanthropist, writer, a martial artist (amongst quite a few other things) and a sweet sweet girl from BASIS Scottsdale. Ah hem, did you hear? Her high school was just ranked the number ONE high school in the country! Something to be super proud of especially after all the hard work that has been put in over the last four years.  

From spending just a few hours with her (and getting to know her while planning her session), I could tell she is going to do incredible things following in her parents' footsteps. I absolutely adore her old soul. She's one of those people who have a calming factor about them. I could've hung out with her all night!

Having a Boston heart, she wanted some urban flair for her senior session. Phoenix doesn't even compare to Boston or any east coast city, in my opinion, as far as "urban" goes, but we managed to find what she was looking for. Brick walls, bus station, parking garage rooftop, skyscrapers, downtown park, lightrail...we managed to fit it all in thanks to her mom driving us around and dropping us off. 

The most memorable part of Kimy's session is when she serenaded us in the park. She has the most INCREDIBLE voice. I could've sat and listened to her sing Black Bird (which happens to be my seven year old's favorite song!) all day. 

Kimy, thank you thank you thank you for letting me be part of your senior year. I had a blast with you and your mom. I'm so incredibly thankful for all the kindness you both showed me and my new little guy. Good luck in Massachusetts. Go on and change the world. I believe you WILL do it! xoxo
P.S.: Stay warm!!!!!!

Samantha, Shadow Ridge High School | AZ Senior Photographer

Ahhh...this session. This girl! Where do I begin? I met Sam back in May when she joined the ART Model Team. After getting to photograph her three times before her actual senior session, she was incredibly comfortable in front of the camera allowing me to be more creative BEHIND the camera. Sessions with her are just good for the soul!

My favorite part of her session was getting to hang out with her on the drive to and from the locations. We had a lot to talk about with all the interesting people we ran into and saw during her session. I mean, what would we have done without modeling advice from a "former" model who was "passing" through Phoenix? And why would anyone need to toss pizza dough while pumping gas? We had a lot to laugh about!

And her outfits. When she pulled out her gorgeous floor length, long sleeve dress from SHOWPO, I almost died. She looked incredible dancing around in it. I love every look she had. Of course, we had to end with a flower crown. I love love love how everything came together. Our planning paid off!

Sami, you are such a beautiful girl with an amazing future! Your confidence is something I wish I had at your age. It will take you far, my friend. Thank you for choosing ME to be part of your senior year. It's been a blast! xoxo,
