Karly, Valley Vista High School | AZ Senior Photographer

Escaping the desert to water and greeeen is always a good thing especially when it's with this gorgeous girl, her mama and grandmother! We had THE best mini road trip up to Prescott in September. As soon as we got out of the car, the first thing we all did was breathe in the nice cool(er) air. It's amazing how just a little drive up the i17 makes it enjoyable to be outside.

We planned the session at the same spots I shot at in January of 2016. Wow, the summer sunshine made it all look so different. The first location was at a park. We were just steps away from a parking lot and yet looked like we were in a forest. Karly looked gorgeous being lit up by the sun coming through the trees. I probably mentioned how excited I was a bajillion times.

Karly's second outfit was more casual so we hit up an old railroad bridge with only one part remaining. It was so nice having the whole space to ourselves. We even got to squeeze some runway lessons in...or maybe not! We tried!

The session ended at the lake. We found white wildflowers again just steps from the parking lot. This time, I got to share a few moves with Karly. You know, whatever it takes to get a genuine smile! After the wildflowers, she changed into her final outfit for some shots down by the lake. It seriously could not have been a more perfect day. I love looking at these pictures reliving the memories.

Karly, thank you so much for joining the model team this year! I had SO MUCH fun with you at your session. I still smile as I think about how you bring out my inner inner. LOL!!! You know what I mean! Love ya, girlie!!!!

Sam & Sara | Shadow Ridge High School Senior Photographer

I am so thankful to have such a great team of models once again this year! It's extra special when the models are besties like these two girlies.

My favorite kind of shoots are ones where there are no expectations. We just hop in the car, meet on the side of the road, stop at random spots on the side of the road and laugh a lot. Sam and Sara met up with me on a gorgeous {and WINDY} night in September where we did exactly this.
