Headshots for Terah Lake {Gilbert Portrait Photographer}


I had the honor of photographing the fabulous Terah of Terah Lake Photography.  She is an amazing photographer and she needed some new head shots of her and her office manager for their new website and I was so excited she chose me to take them!  Both these ladies are amazing and I had such a blast photographing them!  They are both so sweet and full of energy it made this photoshoot so enjoyable.  Thank you Terah for trusting me to help bring your vision to life!

How to Make Your Senior Pictures Different from Everyone Else’s {Gilbert Senior Photographer}

My favorite part about photographing high school seniors is capturing the unique person they are.  It’s so fun to learn about who they are and what they are all about, then taking that information and incorporating it into their senior pictures.  Showcasing their hobbies and talents is a fun and easy way to customize their session and make it different from everyone else’s.

So what should you incorporate?  Here’s some things to ask yourself when planning your senior pictures:
1. What do I do in my spare time?  Play an instrument? Go running? Cheer/dance practice? Read?
2. What am I doing after high school?  Going into a specific college?  Traveling?
3. Do I have a prized possession?  A cool sports car? Favorite animal?  Family heirloom?

Once you figure out what you want to incorporate into your senior pictures, tell your photographer!  I get excited when I hear about what things seniors want to bring to their session- it helps me cater and customize their session- and when we do that their pictures are sure to be different from everyone else’s.

Here’s some seniors who brought along “props” to incorporate their hobbies and talents:




Andy & Elyse {Phoenix Wedding Photographer}

What a beautiful wedding day for Andy & Elyse as they pledged their lives to each other!  This day was not only about them, but it was also about celebrating the life of their youngest son, Jackson.  Andy and Elyse were in Chicago for months at a pediatric hospital where Jackson had to have heart surgery days after being born.  They were unsure that they would even be able to go through with the wedding.  But Jackson is a fighter and he pushed through and is thriving now…and just in time to celebrate his mom and dad’s wedding day!

The day started at The Buttes as Elyse slipped into her dress and Andy buttoned up his suit jacket.  The ceremony and reception was held at The Pera Club in Tempe and was a beautiful backdrop to exchange vows.  Thank you Andy & Elyse for choosing me to document such a beautiful day for you guys!
