Olivia is a stunning senior who will be graduating from Gila Ridge High school this spring. She plans on studying environmental science at Northern Arizona University in the fall. We decided to start her session in one of my favorite desert locations outside of Yuma. She was wearing an amazing green dress that I felt would photograph beautifully against that background. We took some of her in the tall grass near the open desert first and then moved an open area.
For the next location we decided to move to an area across the river from Yuma. There are some old buildings that photograph beautifully and I knew they would compliment Olivia’s next outfit.
The clouds and sunset were amazing that evening. Olivia’s last outfit was a dark green lace dress. We had some wind, but Olivia handled it like a pro. We got so many awesome images of her posing in front of the beautiful Arizona sunset. The sky was an intense orange and then the clouds turned pink and purple. I used my lighting in these final images so that both the sky and Olivia would be at the perfect exposure. They were my favorite images we got during her session.
