Spring: Perfect Timing for Outdoor Senior Portraits

Spring is definitely in the air and along with the enjoyment that comes with singing birds, delicate sunshine and the beauty of vibrant flowers blooming, there is also a frenzy starting to buzz around town as thousands of Albuquerque seniors get ready to close out their senior year.

The hot topic - Booking Your Senior Photo Session!!

Well don't fret - there is still time to get those beautiful outdoor senior photos before graduation in May!!!  Whether you are looking for an urban downtown Albuquerque location, a stunning spot in the Sandia foothills, or something in between, I am happy to help you find the perfect location to personalize your senior session.

For Ali's Senior Session, we went to the beautiful campus of UNM.  The University of New Mexico Campus is always a great spot for a photo session because it offers much variety and is absolutely stunning!

I was so excited to see Ali's bright blue hair, cool shades and black leather jacket!!  Look at her rock'n that outfit!!  Here are a few photos from her senior session, which include the duck pond, trees, and cherry blossoms...

For Sarah's Senior Session, we started at her stable near Corrales because she wanted photos with her chestnut Quarter Horse Shamrock.  After taking some shots in the arena at the stable, Sarah lead Shamrock down the trail and into the Bosque.  

Our last stop for Sarah's senior session was to drive to Bachechi where we found some gorgeous Cherry Blossoms and stunning light - just before sunset.  What a perfect ending to our 2 hour session!

Jacque's Senior Session started at Alameda Open Space, moved to Bachechi, then ended at one of my hidden locations complete with access to the Rio Grande and the stunning Sandia Mountain backdrop. 

That's the great thing about customizing your senior session - it's okay to use props, choose multiple locations and to change outfits

Here are a few of my black and white favorites from Jacque's session:

Hannah was another gorgeous senior that I had the great privilege to photograph. She is an aspiring photographer with a gentle spirit and a heart for helping others.  She has a strong passion to make a difference in the world. 

Of course, a few more black and whites to enjoy...
