Liliana, Rock Springs High School | Wyoming Senior Portraits

Liliana scheduled the second half of her session in the early fall, but we got a bonus!  It snowed in the mountains overnight and she got two seasons in one day.

Can you even handle that light? There’s something magical about autumn light. Sigh.

I’m a big fan of this rust-colored skirt with the muted fall sage and golden grass.

Liliana, Rock Springs High School | Wyoming Senior Portraits

Liliana and her mother drove all the way from Rock Springs, Wyoming for her senior portraits. She also booked sessions in two different seasons; summer and fall! Her fall session will be posted soon – stay tuned. 

July in the city is absolutely stunning. Hot, yet. But stunning. Flower pots have filled out and are colorful, trees are green, and the sunlight is gorgeous. We started on Main Street in a gorgeous pin-striped romper.

Maiya, Waterford | Utah Senior Portraits

Give me a whimsical sun flare in every single senior portrait session and I’ll be a happy camper. Look at that sun peak through the pine trees! Maiya graduated from The Waterford School. She is the second graduate from this family I have photographed.

Once the sun sets below the horizon, the lighting changes a bit. We lose the sun flare, but the even, soft lighting is just as beautiful.

Sarah, Brighton High School | Lacrosse Senior Portraits

Meet Sarah, a Brighton High School lacrosse player and all-around amazing girl. We had a blast at her session. Her mother is a dear friend of mine and makes me giggle uncontrollably. In between shots, we laughed and laughed. 

We started her session on this adorable porch. Her striped gray dress was the perfect choice for a softer color pallet, complimenting the white railings and pink walls.

Lilacs are my very favorite flowers in the whole wide world. I can’t get enough. So this stunning navy dress by the lilac lined picket fence with the sunlight streaming through about knocked me over! One of my all-time favorite images.

Finding an apple orchard with blossoms to shoot this pink top was awesome. Tall grasses, blossoms, wooden steps, and picket fences. I can’t decide which option was my favorite!

Brenna, Summit Academy | Utah Senior Portraits

Brenna graduated from Summit Academy in 2019 but silly me, I haven’t blogged since then! We explored downtown Salt Lake City, visiting a graffiti wall behind a seedy building, a rooftop, and the Utah Capitol blossoms. Brenna danced all through high school and was an absolute joy to photograph.

Abby + Field of Daffodils| Utah Senior Portraits

I can’t even handle this image. A field of daffodils. A striped jumper. Perfection.

After we were done playing in the daffodils, we caught some images with a more urban feel to them. The sun was setting behind the mountains, giving us the perfect backlight.
