Kharissa | 2018 Senior | Woodstock Senior Photography

How is it already May, and half way through May at that!? We celebrated my son finishing his first year of pre-school this week! I don't even want to think about the fact that someday I will have to celebrate him finishing high school one day! We've got a long way to go before then though, so I'll just be over here soaking it all in, and doing everything I can to keep him little.

Earlier this year I headed out to visit some family in Arizona, and also to capture this beauty's senior pictures! I was so excited to get out and shoot in the desert. I grew up in the desert, and there is just nothing quite as beautiful to me. 

We had a fun evening exploring downtown Phoenix and all the beautiful murals to choose from for some interesting backdrops. Then we headed way out to the mountains and desert for golden hour, and a sunset straight out of a painting!

Sometimes you step out of your comfort zone and try something new. Danielle was so sweet to contact me and have me take some senior photos of her. When I went for our initial consult I felt like I had hit the jackpot! I have been dreaming forever of doing a senior session with a girl and her horse. 

Danielle has been riding horses ever since she can remember. Her mom told me she had to beg stables to let her come ride when she just 5 years old, because she loved it so much! So when we started talking about doing her senior pictures, she knew her horses needed to be in the pictures too.

If you are interested in booking your Senior portrait session with me please contact me here, or shoot me an email at I absolutely love collaborating and planning a sessions that are unique, modern, and fun!
