Meet Katie. She's a super stylish high school senior who happens to be loads of fun!
I met up with Katie and her friend, Alex, in Tempe to do Katie's senior portraits. This blog is a little longer than usual... with more photos than I normally post. But we all had quite the adventure and I felt the story would be missing something without them.
We started our session at the train tracks in a nearby neighborhood. I loved how Katie's dress was such an awesome contrast against the rustic vibe of the tracks.
Alex spotted these yellow chairs and table when we were leaving the train tracks. Nice catch! I have no idea who lives there... no one was home. But I sure did like how their cat joined in on the pictures.
We headed back towards Mill Street for the rest of the photographs, but we tried to find places that were less obvious than what you'd expect from Tempe. So we made our way off the main drag and found some cool little spots.
I couldn't decide which of these next two photos to post... I like them both equally! So I posted both of them... it was easier than choosing.
This next photo is one of my favs. It is also about the time I laid down in the grass and was attacked by a bunch of ants. Seriously... I had a good 15 - 20 ants crawling all over my arm and those little things hurt when they bite you!
Moving on down the street... with my very numb arm, we continued our adventure...
I did not expect the light to go down as fast as it did. I guess summer is officially over. So I had to get creative, break out my flash, and figure out how to work the very, very low light.
Katie is a singer (she's in choir in school), so we used the microphone to incorporate her passion in the photographs. The moody light worked in our favor... I really like how these photos came out. She looks like she is in a rock video.
Thanks Katie for letting me take your senior photos! I had tons of fun hanging with you and Alex!
