Rachel is my other beautiful girl senior rep from Horizon High School! I was so excited to work with her because she wanted something different and unique that fit her personality. Rachel is an aspiring actress and loves bright, bold, and colorful things. After some discussions about possible locations, we decided on downtown Phoenix for some amazing graffiti walls and then to head down to Tempe to hit up the Tempe Center for the Arts and Tempe Town Lake area. Both were elements that were important to Rachel to include. I love how the graffiti just pops behind her in these photos – and as you can tell, Phoenix graffiti is more than just that – it’s art and it’s done by some amazing artists! There are so many nooks and crannies in Phoenix that have amazing wall art like these pictures and it’s something you have to go see if you can! After downtown, we went back to my amazing makeup artist’s house (Stephanie with SN Makeup Artist) to refresh Rachel’s hair and makeup! (Rachel went with the hair/makeup combo add on and I’m so glad that she did because that meant she got more than one look for her session! We started basic and light and amped it up for the later shots!) Once we finished touching up, we went straight to the Tempe Center for the Arts and let me tell you, it’s simply breathtaking. It sits right on Tempe Town Lake and behind the Center, there are amazing water features and different areas for photos. We weren’t the only ones there using that beautiful location and I could definitely see why! My favorite location there had to be the bridge we used very last – the way it lit up at night was just breathtaking and Rachel just beamed on it! Oh I just love all these photos Rachel and I hope you do too! If you want to learn more about the senior experience with me, be sure to ask Rachel for more info!
