Kristin is a Senior at Desert Christian High School in Tucson – and is the Step Sister of another of my awesome Seniors (Trever Cook) – it was infact Trever’s Senior photos that really hooked her – and then she ended up with better photos (sorry Trever! I tried). Kristin is a 2 sport athlete playing both soccer and basketball – but basketball is her first true love. Kristin has some modeling asperations and as you might be able to tell I think it’s more like “modeling realities” – great places you’ll go Kristin, thanks for allowing me to be among the first of many to photograph you. Big Props go out to Conor Quinlan for his help on this shoot along with Kristin’s mom.
Chris, Jacq and Addy – these are the Biggers…. doesn’t get any Bigger than this ! Chris and Jacq go a ways back with me and they have been excited for a while to have some family photos done by me cause they knew they wanted something “u…nique and unusual” – much more urban and industrial. Not your mamma’s family photos. I was excited to have someone willing. Biggers thanks goes out to Mamma Biggers for helping with Addy while we got some fun connection session photos of Chris and Jacq. Also it’s worth noting that Chris serves our country as a Special Agent in the Air Force. Chris is dealing with alot of uglyness in an overseas deployment now – so we don’t have to – BIGGERS thanks to you Chris ! And hats off to Jacq for being a single parent right now in Chris’ absense.
This is him.. who has the heart of a Lion! It’s only fitting that Zach Seale is a Senior at Pusch Ridge Christian Academy and their mascot is the LION ! This young man truly has the heart of a Lion and it’s evident from the moment you meet him. Zach is a man of many talents. He’s the son of missionary parents and has taken an active role in leading many in worship thru his musical talents on both the guitar and the drums. Zach also plays Football as on Offensive lineman and can hit as hard as anyone! A video gaming soft hearted hard hitting LION he is. I loved the drums Zach thanks for letting me tell your Senior story ! a special thanks goes out to Alex LaMear for his assitance on lights and such.
Alex has been one of the most unique Senior’s I’ve met yet – she told me she wanted to work in her love of food (McDonalds, InNOut Buger – the cupcakes and cupcake fight with her younger brother) since she wants to be a Chef and go to culinary school. Specifically Alex wants to be a pastry chef. Alex also has an intense love for reading. I got the wild idea of shooting on location in a bookstore and Big Ben the Manager down at Bookman’s Speedway was very accomidating to allow us that opportunity. It was a sunday afternoon and crawling with people. I’ve never seen it that busy! go figure! McDonalds and InNOut Burger were less cooperative and I was more sneeky! After the pitstop with the Big MAC and the shake from InNOut – it was time to go downtown for some serious portraits. Alex… I had a blast working with you and getting to know you and the fact that you had a favorite Michael Jackson T-shirt was just the Icing on the CUPCAKE ! Glad your brother exclaimed it was the best day of his life when I said “ok you get to smash her with a cupcake” – he was a hoot too. You’ve got great chapters to your story yet to write – and the best part is you get to be the author !
Natalie and her family and I go way back.. her mom Cindy helped Heidi, myself and my parents purchase the home we are in since 2001 – Cindy is the greatest real estate agent we’ve ever seen – and she has been a great supporter of mine over the years. I’ve helped Cindy learn the computer when MLS went webbased, I did all of her computer work when I had my computer company… then Cindy and Wayne both purchased their cars from me in my days as an Auto Broker – finally when it came time and need for photography – they came a-callin’ again. Thanks for all the support over the years Cindy, Wayne and Natalie !
Natalie is a Oncology nurse in training – and is about halfway done with her training at this date. She needed a Milk themed photo to submit with a scholarship application for the american dairy association’s annual deal. The rules: Photo has to have a glass of milk in it and the person has to have a milk mustache. With both of those covered the rest was up to us to create along with the final ad you see here as well. Natalie – this was the most unique photoshoot project to date ! thanks for calling on me. Our prayers and well wishes are with you as you wait to hear if you get this scholarship !
