Ella Meshke| SAHS CO 16 |

Hello from Ella of South Anchorage High School!

Ella is a lover of fashion, so of course she is a sharp dresser! Her outfits are pretty yet simple, which is perfect for being photographed. Plus she knows what looks good on her – just look at how that purple top compliments her gorgeous eyes! And up against that painted brick wall — double pop!

We took Ella for a walk downtown to find some hidden gems to pose in, like a cool city alley way, and, as mentioned, that awesome turquoise brick wall!

Meet South Anchorage High School senior, Jordan Moore.

Jordan loves football, so the #1 thing we had to do was photograph him in his uniform! We absolutely love the intensity in his football photos! Just look at his face, and you can see he is a serious player. Let’s also take a second to mention that he doesn’t seem to have helmet hair — in fact his hair looks awesome. Teach us your ways, Jordan!

As a sporty guy, Jordan loves to be outside, so we got some nice relaxed photos with simple backgrounds to compliment his comfortable flannels.

Chas Anderson| WHS CO 16 |

Hello, Chas!

Chas is a competitive tennis player at West High, so it was a no brainer to take his photos on the tennis court. We went two ways with this look. The first is more realistic, showing Chas holding his tennis racket on the boundaries of the court. The second shows our senior sitting relaxed by the net, but with a surreal background of flying tennis balls. So cool!

Out of his tennis digs and into his street clothes, Chas showed us his classy young professional style. We played up his image by taking him downtown; the architectural backgrounds complimented his button-down look with an urban feel.


Nicole McCormick| SAHS CO 16 |

Say “Hello!” to Miss Nicole!

For South Anchorage High School senior Nicole McCormick, we highlighted two of her favorite pastimes in her senior photos: basketball and spending time outdoors. Her basketball was of course the perfect prop to personalize her session, so we carried it with us! The plywood and concrete backgrounds speak to her sporty passions as well. To capture her adventurous nature, we found an outcropping of lush berried trees, and she jumped right in! We are absolutely in love with how the rich green of the leaves complimented her gorgeous red hair, so pretty!


Bailey Smith | WHS CO 16 |

Not everyday has to be sunny in order to take beautiful photos! Just take a look at West High School senior Bailey Smith’s senior pictures! For Bailey’s senior session, we went down to Point Woronzof just off the Coastal Trail downtown. The lightly overcast day lent itself to a serene beach scene and provided just the right amount of mood lighting. I had a fun time photographing Bailey against the buildings of historic downtown Anchorage, but she truly shined in her flowing white dress as she walked along the shoreline, violin in tow.

Erica Stewart| SAHS CO 16 |

Take a look at this beauty! We had a lovely time with South Anchorage High School senior Erica Stewart! Among Erica’s well rounded list of interests is a love for the outdoors, including fishing, hiking, and camping, so it was obvious that we had to get ourselves into the Alaskan wilderness for her senior session! Erica’s choice to dress in simple, flowy whites made for an excellent contrast between herself and the vivid natural backgrounds, which allowed her to really pop in her photos without looking out of place.
