I have known Josh since he was in first grade at Bethany Christian School! Such a great young man who serves in his community and has a great love for Sea World! Josh is excited for Senior Year and to graduate Valley Christian High School in the Fall of 2017! He is a member of choir and chorale and is an Eagle Scout.
What did YOU notice first!!?? Aren’t Lina’s eyes arresting?! I couldn’t wait for the opportunity to take modeling photos with this gorgeous teen! What you don’t see about Lina is her angelic voice and kind heart! She has been in choir and performing in local productions for several years around Arizona, stealing hearts on stage and with everyone she meets!
For this Downtown Tempe photo session, it got windy so we had fun playing with poses that would show her wilder side! She is quiet by nature but loves to be in front of the camera and I could tell she was as excited about taking pictures as me- and that says something!!:)
I hadn’t seen Claire in a couple of years until our recent session in Chandler- does she light up a room, or what!?! Her confident attitude and spunky, fun personality is something to behold! It’s no wonder this teen won a Christian Service Award which included 400 hours of service! Well now she is moving on to even bigger things and is officially ready to be a high schooler and with tons of enthusiasm – she enters Seton High School in the Fall!

Some fun facts about our session:
It was WAYYYY windy out the day of our shoot! Which resulted in some crazy good model like shots with her beautiful blond locks blowing in every direction!
She took three hours to get her hair ready for our session… which the wind paid no mind to, at all!
We went to a new spot for me in Chandler – I loved all the elements of shooting in a more urban setting!
This teen would love to be a model – and I think she has all the right stuff to pursue this dream!
We can still get cold days in Arizona in April, or it can be 100 degrees a day later, sometimes you can’t count count on that sunny Arizona sky!
Claire might take the cake for being the most confident in front of the camera – and that is my personal hope! That teens can be confident in who they are, and feel good about themselves inside and out – it’s actually the number one reason for my photography!
So Claire you killed it, in my book! So glad you chose me as your photographer this year! May all your dreams come true and may those dreams be even bigger, and affect even more people as you continue to touch the lives of those around you in the coming years!! xo
As soon as Halle and I met, I could tell it was going to be a great session! Halle is poised, quiet, and full of class! I loved how inspired she was through dance and music she embraced both of them fully! Each dance pose was executed with precision, the way she carried herself and played her violin, showed both her confidence and sweetness! This senior girl shined through with each click of the camera!
I thought I would spend some time talking about how I work with Seniors today. When a photo session is booked, I spend weeks planning and setting up for their photo session. I send some inspiration photos to help them prepare their look and confidence during our photo session, so by the time they get to the location they know what to expect and have great ideas that personalize their images. When we arrive and start, the creativity unfolds and we let light, the surroundings, and the mood dictate how the images are captured! It is just as fun for me to see the final results, as it is for the model! My high school seniors are involved in choosing their images for their package out of 100 photos and sessions can run up to 2 hours! Time seems like it goes so fast even while we take time at each background.
For this urban senior session, we went downtown Phoenix, Arizona and looked for places that were unique and fun! I love the color of this brick wall and the cool tones of the old bay door, the rundown look and her classic violin provided just the contrast we were looking for in her big city session!
With only weeks to graduate from Chandler High, Halle is going places and she is determined to live out her dreams! For more of Halle’s senior pictures click on this link: http://simplysagephotographyjenn.pixieset.com/halleclassof2016/
