Delaney was our first Senior Portrait shoot for the Class of 2016. This shoot was especially special to us because Delaney is our 3-year-old son Otto favorite babysitter. We had been talking to Delaney for a few weeks about what she envisioned. She is a fun-loving, beautiful young lady inside and out and we knew we wanted to capture that in her photos. Delaney is a Flagstaff native and loves her hometown. So we decided to head out 180 with the goal of getting up to Snow Bowl before it rained or the sun set.
We almost had to reschedule the shoot due to an afternoon monsoon storm but I hoped that the weather would provide us with amazing light and nature came through for us. Delaney brought her mom and sister along for moral support. They were amazing and we couldn’t have gotten the great shoots that we did without them. Our first stop was in a field of wild flowers across from the Cheshire neighborhood. From the first photo that we got we could tell this was going to be a great shoot.
Delaney was a really natural in front of the camera. We just had fun and got some great photos. We then headed up the mountain chasing the sun as it was setting all the way to a wonderful meadow, stopping all along the way to shoot in the beautiful aspen groves. The sunset was one of the most brilliant ones that I have seen and we took full advantage. By the end of the 2-hour shoot we had a strong variety of photos that really captured Delaney’s beauty and style. I hope these photos will always remind Delaney of this time in her life and how very special it is.
