Brynn O’Connell | WHS CO 17

Senior Year: Brynn

Brynn, a senior from West High School, is the definition of a renaissance woman! She’s a painter, a model, and a scholar. Her natural ability for modeling made my job so easy! Her smize was on point the whole time for her senior pictures! Brynn had two separate senior sessions this year. Her summer session captured her scholarly side, where her fall senior session was more model-esque. Both of her senior sessions combined make for a great sampling of her personality!

Brynn’s outfits were perfect for her senior pictures too! Her Norwegian sweater complimented the downtown background. Her coat was a great pairing with the fall colors and really had that cozy feeling to them.

Here’s to a great senior year Brynn!

Molly Vandergon | SHS CO 17

Senior Year: Molly

Molly, a senior from Service High School, wanted to dress it up a bit for her senior pictures. She wore her beautiful prom dress for her the part of her senior session that was at Beluga Point! The amethyst color of her dress complimented the chestnut colors of the onset of fall perfectly. She switched it up a bit with her xtra tuffs, which is essential for any Alaskan wardrobe.

Molly’s friends and sister came to help out on her senior session, and they were a blast. I had to sneak in a couple snapshots of them together to commemorate it!

Good luck on your senior year Molly!

Alex Kramer | SAHS CO 17

Senior Year: Alex

Alex, a senior at South Anchorage High School, wanted to switch up locations from the locations around Anchorage for her senior pictures. And switched it up we did, we headed to Hatcher’s Pass to give Alex the mountain scenery she wanted for her pictures. It just so happens that Alex is an avid rock climber, and we got lucky with the weather to be able to photograph Alex rock climbing a bit around Hatcher’s Pass!

Hatcher’s Pass offers a bit of variety from the mountains too. The cabins, mine, meadows, and the creek provided some great backdrops for Alex’s senior pictures. Alex was great to work with and her natural expressions, made my job easy.

Have a great year Alex!

Sadra Bowie | PK12 CO 17

I had the pleasure of photographing the Bowie family last summer, and I’m so happy that I had the pleasure of working with the Bowie family again to photograph their eldest daughter, Sadra, for her senior pictures! Sadra, a senior at Polaris High School in Anchorage, was so much fun to photograph. Her natural beauty made my job super easy.

Her sweaters were perfect for the fall leaves that flourished when she came in for her senior pictures. Sadra was able to capture a spring-time feeling for her senior photos since the weather was warm enough for her to wear a simple dress! This gave her the feeling of two sessions in one!

Here’s to a great senior year Sadra!

Allena Graciani | EHS CO 17

The weather was in Allena’s favor for her senior session in late September. September is usually nothing but rain her in Anchorage, but not for Allena! Her session had the beautiful evening sunlight that only happens in the fall. Her ethereal dress was perfect with the lighting and complimented the scenery nicely. Combine that with her simple dress with a jean jacket, Allena had a nice variety to her senior pictures! Her mom came to help on her session, and let me tell you, they cracked me up the whole time! They were so much fun to work with.

Good luck on your senior year Allena!

Erich LaFlamme | BHS CO 17

Erich first came in to help with Brianna’s senior session and I could not be more happy that he decided to come to me to photograph his senior pictures too! It’s always such a huge compliment when that happens and it lets me know that I’m doing something right.

Erich’s simpler outfits worked great with his in studio portraits, and his dress shirt and blazer complimented the metropolitan part of downtown. His other outfits worked great with the more grungier alleyways. Erich was so much fun to work with. From his upbeat personality, to his impeccable fashion sense, and various locations around downtown Anchorage, his senior photos show an array that everyone wishes for in their images. Here’s to a wonderful year for you Erich!

Jordan Daniels | DHS CO 17

Jordan Daniels is the epitome of Sporty Spice. She plays soccer and flag football for Dimond High, loves to hike, and dance. Her outfits were on point for her senior session earlier this year. Her white dress made a versatile choice, pairing well with the trees as well as the downtown buildings. Her olive green shirt with the black jacket, made her just pop in the photos. Not only did we get some great downtown photos, we ended up getting some wonderful images in a local park too! Her photos in the park gave her a great collection of images to keep forever!

Have a great senior year Jordan!

Noble Solana-Walkinshaw | EHS C017

Let me just start by saying I have always loved photographing actors! And taking an actor’s senior photos is just as much fun! Noble, a senior from East High School, was no exception to this rule, from his wonderful smiles to his selfie smolder, Noble was a natural in front of the camera.

Mr. Noble may have grown up in Alaska, but he’s got that New York City style and energy. He even introduced me to the term Metelcore. We can’t wait to see where he goes from here.

So much of senior photos comes down to your style and what you wear, and Noble made some great choices. From his chunky knit sweater to his Chambray blazer everything photographed beautifully. Congratulations on your senior year Noble, hope it’s a great one for you!
