A collection of senior photos of my friend Annie! Taken in North Scottsdale by Highlands Church near dusk! Funny story, Annie had just gotten some photos taken a week or so before. She and her mom had driven quiet some a way to visit their photographer, and in the end Annie felt like her photos felt forced and awkward. So after hearing that I was looking for models, her mom asked if I would try.
Of course I told her yes and that she wouldn’t pay a thing unless she really loved them! I showed Annie the photos as I went a long and asked her what kind of poses felt forced and which came more natural to her. I also asked her to bring some of her friends along, I think it helps break a little tension and gives a person someone to talk to while I, the photographer, work out some camera settings. It led to some naturally gorgeous smiles and gave all of her photos incredible warmth!
