Stunning Spokane Senior Session

& High School Seniors.

Lauren’s big beautiful smile is contagious and during her Spokane senior session, it was hard to not fall in love with her personality and energy.  She brought multiple outfits that screamed her sweet, flirty and stunning personality, which helped us capture all of the amazing portraits.
We traveled to some of the hottest spots in Spokane to give Lauren the best backdrop in her senior photographs.  We were able to snap shots of the cascading waterfall at Mirabeau park and the wind kissed golden wheat fields as they surrounded her in the park.
We really were able to capture the stunning surroundings of Spokane and this beautiful young woman in this session.  The grace and poise Lauren carried with her during our shoot was a true please to work with and the photos speak for themselves.

Stunning Outdoor Senior Session

& High School Seniors.

There are many places in Spokane to take senior photos, but you have to find the right spot to get the best shot for that senior.  When working with high school senior Kylie, we found her perfect locations on opposite sides of town.  One being in downtown Spokane, where the pops of color and vibrant life of a bustling downtown surrounded her.  While the other was at Mirabeau Park in Spokane Valley where her stunning outdoor senior session took on an entirely new feel as she walked through the wheat fields.  Her ease and great personality was such a pleasure to photograph making my job that much easier and enjoyable.  Kylie’s comfort in front of the lens was evident as she embraced different poses and styles to make the photo breath-taking.   Her subtle details that she would add to her wardrobe, gave that special touch to make everything showcase who she is.  It seemed that everything was cascading around her perfectly, even the sun was falling around her in just the right way to highlight her beautiful hair and soft gaze.  It was a true pleasure to photograph such a beautiful young woman.

Beautiful Senior Session

& High School Seniors.

The first thing I noticed as Amanda walked into my studio was her big vibrant smile, and as the day went on, I came to recognize it as a constant fixure on her face. This was one of the things I wanted to make sure to showcase in Amanda’s beautiful senior session. We started out in the the studio, coming up with a variety of fun photos that would show off her sweet personality as well as her excitement to be entering this phase in her life. We wanted to make sure we incorperated a variety of poses in case the rainy Spokane weather kept up its act and kept us indoors.  Amanda’s energy kept this shoot fun and light as we played around, which included venturing out of the studio and into surrounding areas in search of a change in indoor scenery. Lucky for us, Spokane decided to cooperate and by the time we felt satisfited with our studio photos, the sun had come out, bursting through those beautiful Spokane clouds.  Amanda would get her beautiful outdoors senior session afterall! The three of us (me, Amanda, and her sweet mother) hurried outside and found some awesome spots just outside my downtown Spokane studio. We started on the streets as we utilized the beautiful evening light and interesting downtown textures, creating angelic shots of Amanda. We then worked with the beautiful post-rain clouds and the gorgeaus sunset to create some dramatic urban shots.  We had a blast, and I loved getting to capture Amanda’s beautiful senior session!

Unique Senior Photos in Spokane

& High School Seniors.

Brooklyn. It’s not hard to remember Brooklyn. Not only was she full of ideas for unique senior photos, and a ton of fun, but I have confetti all over my studio 3 months later :) I first met Brooklyn during her sister’s senior photo shoot a couple of years ago in Spokane. Immediately Brooklyn let me know that if I ever needed a senior model to represent my studio, she would love to do it. I was sold on her immediately, especially after I got to listen to her making her sister laugh by singing a capella in the middle of a grass field.

Brooklyn knew she wanted to do some downtown Spokane shots to show her urban side, but also wanted to show off her softer side by prancing around in a formal gown at the park. This definitely provided Brooklyn unique senior photos! One of the benefits of being one of my senior photo models, is that they typically get a bit longer sessions. There were a couple of very specific unique senior photo ideas that we had, that required us to try and try again, spending at least 20 minutes on each one. But we did it and we scored!! The photos of Brooklyn sitting under a blossomed cherry tree is one of our favorites, as well as Brooklyn tossing confetti in the studio.

Another benefit Brooklyn received by signing up to be a senior photo model was having her makeup applied by the talented Evelyn with Makeup By Evelyn Mauro. I also provide this with my 2 and 3 location senior sessions. Professional makeup adds that perfect extra touch to soften the skin and make those gorgeous eyes pop! If you’ve considered professional makeup for your photo shoot, come talk to me or Evy!!

A Nature-Perfect Senior Photo Session

& High School Seniors.

When you meet a high school senior as genuine as Bethany you are really taken back.  Her mature personality and good natured sense of humor are one of a kind, I knew working with her was going to be special and I was eager to catch her natural beauty at any location she wanted.

When deciding where she wanted to have her senior photo shoot take place, she couldn’t decide, but when I asked her about her summer events she was beaming ear to ear about the camp that she has been attending for years.  This camp is Shoshone Base Camp, a sister camp of  Lutherhaven, and is a special place to a lot of youth in the Spokane area and without a doubt it is a special place to Bethany.  As she talked about her experiences there I could only focus on one thing, this is where we had to do her shoot.  The place is gorgeous and unique, giving any photographer a perfect setting for a senior session and I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to capture Bethany’s last year there.

The natural landscape takes your breathe away the minute you arrive to the camp grounds which are cut in around the large evergreens, the smooth running river,  and the hidden trails.  The perfectly constructed log cabins are placed precisely and give the kids a great place to hang out and share memories, which is just one of the spots we stopped snap Bethany in her summer element.  Bethany’s beautiful blond hair and soft blue eyes glowed all day long among the beauty around her, giving us perfect shot after perfect shot.

I hope to go back to this fabulous spot and enjoy it maybe a fraction of the amount that high school senior Bethany has over the years.  It was my pleasure to work with Bethany and I wish her luck as she walks down the many roads into her future.

Location:  Lutherhaven Camp in Northern Idaho

An Autumn Senior Portrait Session

& High School Seniors.

I met high school senior Morgan by chance really.  She was coming into town from Montana to visit her brother at Gonzaga University and thought that it would be the perfect time to capture some unique, original and completely different than her classmate photographs, so I of course was ready show off my home town and her style right in downtown Spokane.

We walked through downtown for over three hours finding the perfect places to highlight Morgan’s beauty and style.  The shopping district, as any girl knows, is a great spot to bring out the fun and vibrant side of a girl, so we snapped some shots in the streets that are lined with some of the best shops.  We also wandered through the beautiful Riverfront Park that is located in the center of downtown Spokane.  The river runs through it, the falls drop by the gondolas, the Bloomsday statues stand for something special to our town, and the beautifully manicured grounds are a piece of art themselves in this exquisite park.  The park screams come take photographs here and that we did.  Morgan wouldn’t have gotten any of that in her pictures in Montana, so I think we meet and exceeded her desires in this photo shoot which is always what I strive for. Morgan’s crystal blue eyes and fun personality make each photograph beam.  Working with her made my job so easy that those three hours flew by, I truly could have worked with her for an entire day.

I wish her luck and maybe when she heads this direction again we can do a follow up shoot!

Changing of the Seasons Senior High School Session

& High School Seniors.

As the seasons change in the Inland Northwest and specifically Spokane, we are given some fabulous color pallets, textures, and sunsets that make a senior high school session just that much more amazing.

When I met with high school senior Rachel I knew right away that her look was going to be perfect under this new season.  The gorgeous glows of auburn, burnt orange, browns and tans were going to work perfectly with Rachel’s skin tone.  We were able to find some breathtaking locations in Peaceful Valley in downtown Spokane that gave us some shots with the river behind her and the eroded rocks underneath her feet, adding detail and contrast to her graceful poses.  Besides Peaceful Valley we did captured some shots at my studio, where we played with props, her wardrobe, and the different subtle textures that came with it all.  Just like outside, we were able to find her natural beauty and bring it to light in each photograph.

Rachel’s grace and beauty were brought to life in all of the photos that we got, which made my job pretty easy.  It was blast working with her and I wish her the best in her future.

Beautiful Spokane Outdoor Senior Photos

& High School Seniors.

Sometimes I am just blessed with all aspects of a photo-session, and this was one of those occasions.  I had the privilege of working with a beautiful, charismatic, and fashion forward senior named Sela and I was able to use the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest to snap some fabulous photos.

I met up with Sela and we went to a private property in Cheney, WA which is 18 miles to the west of Spokane.  This location was found by another senior that I had the pleasure of working with earlier in the year, and amazingly the owners of the property were kind enough to let me come back with another high school senior to capture some more amazing shots on their land.  As a thank you for letting us come photograph Sela for her senior shoot I brought them cupcakes from a local cupcake shop called Sweet Frostings.  What better way to say thank you then some truly scrumptious treats?!

Sela brought some great outfits for her shoot that showed off her great style.  Each piece she wore gave her a different look in all of the photographs that we took, which is always a great way to showcase the true person especially as a high school senior girl.  She also had some small accessories that caught your eye, like her little navy blue bow bracelet and her simple pearl bracelet strand.  They both added just a little touch of flare to the photos, especially when she was in the fields or posing with the old Ford truck.  I love it when high schoolers have such confidence and share their own personalities through their fashion.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Sela and help her capture high school senior year!  I know there will be many more glowing roads she will be walking upon in her future.

A Softball Player and Her Senior Portraits

& High School Seniors.

When I get the opportunity to work with a fellow softball enthusiast, I of course get really excited.  To make it even better Brenna came to the photo session with one request.  She wanted to wear her prom dress while in her catcher’s gear.  Perfect!  I was definitely in.

Brenna and I started this beautiful day at West Valley High School in the Spokane Valley photographing some amazing shots under the sun.  We captured her true passion for softball, which you can’t get anywhere else, but the field.  We were able to get some great shots of her purple prom dress blowing in the breeze to show off what was underneath, her shin guards.  It was a true mix of beauty and sport, it worked perfectly.  After leaving the field, we headed to Liberty Lake County Park, where we caught the sun on it’s way to sunset, to snap some more amazing portraits.

It was great to work with Brenna, the sporty side and the beautiful, because with her they go hand in hand.  I hope to hear about her great successes as she knocks it out of the park!
