Chase | Naches HS Senior 2011

I met chase out at Eschbach park in the Naches area. We wandered around the area enjoying the grass, trees & various creeks. Usually it takes a few minutes for people to open up and become comfortable in front of the camera but not Chase, He was a natural right from the beginning. I really enjoyed taking his senior pictures & he sure made my job easy!

Melissa | Davis HS Senior 2011

For Melissa’s photo shoot we went to a farm in Mabton. It was super fun to work with unique backgrounds that no one will have in their pictures. Melissa loves rustic old cars & we found this great pickup truck in a garage. We also found half an old car mounted to a fence. We both had lots of fun discovering all the interesting things on the farm & got some great photos. Here are a few of my favorites.

Lauren | Senior 2011

One of my favorite seasons is fall, I just love the colors! The trees weren’t all changing yet, but I did find a few that were amazingly colorful. I had a lot of fun on this shoot and Lauren was very photogenic. Here are a few of my favorites.

Chelsie | WV High School 2011

Chelsie was so much fun to take pictures of! She was super energetic and had one of the most contagious laughs that I couldn’t help but to join in. She also had an awesome serious/model face… which usually only lasted a second because then she would crack up laughing again:)
Chelsie also has a great eye for what might look good in a photo. While we were walking along the street of downtown Yakima she would stop periodically and say “Hey, what about taking a picture there… or by that”. I loved the energy she brought to the shoot and her pictures definitely turned out fantastic!
Thanks for being so much fun Chelsie! Here’s a couple for you to enjoy while I work on the rest.

Andrea W. | Highland High School 2011

Andrea was the first person to do the split shoot. The regular senior portrait session is 2 hours so instead of doing a consecutive 2 hour shoot, Andrea decided it would be fun to do two 1 hour sessions on two different days. The advantage of this is you can go to two different locations and style your hair two different ways. Andi likes to wear her hair curly one day and straight the next, so the split shoot was a great way to capture her two different looks.
The first half of the pictures were taken in Down Town Yakima. Honestly I’m a big fan of the urban look so I was glad she wanted to have some pictures taken by the unique brick walls and train tracks. She brought a whole trunk full of clothes, shoes and jewelry so it was fun to participate in the “what to wear” process. She had such a fun wardrobe!
The second portrait session took place at the Cascade Gardens. Andrea looked beautiful and her curly hair was a big change from the first portrait session; She really does have two different looks! Andi plays basketball and soccer so it was fun to include her Letterman jacket in a couple shots to show off her sporty side.
Thanks Andi for the fun shoot, I’m glad I got to meet you and I hope your senior year is Awesome!
