Graduating from nursing school is a huge accomplishment, and it deserves to be celebrated! Alejandra was positively gorgeous at our senior session in Sierra Vista, AZ. I couldn’t have asked for a more meaningful session!

To be honest, this year has been a punch to the gut for Alejandra. We were originally planning to do a different kind of session, but plans changed when Ale faced some of the darkest days of her life. 

Although I no longer offer senior sessions, I knew that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take Alejandra’s. I’m so proud of her for pulling herself together to celebrate one of the biggest milestones in her life. 

As we communicated back and forth to figure out what to do for the session, I was so touched and inspired by her strength. Despite the challenges she faced, Ale remained determined to heal and put herself first.

Brown Canyon Ranch was the perfect place to do just that. The rustic charm of the ranch provided the most picturesque backdrop for the shoot, and the gorgeous light cast everything in the prettiest glow. I’m so glad that we chose to have this session in Sierra Vista.

The natural beauty of the location perfectly complemented Ale’s radiance as she celebrated her milestone. I couldn’t have been prouder of her! As we turned this day into a magical moment for her, Ale found a space to celebrate who she is inside and out.

As she stepped in front of my camera, her beauty was impossible to miss. Her makeup, which she did herself, was flawless, highlighting her natural features and her bright red cap and gown. So needless to say, she rocked it!

Every detail of this session was curated to give her the confidence she needed to take on the world. That meant including her precious furbaby, Coco! This pup was such a sweetheart, just like her human. 

Ale’s thoughtfulness knows no bounds. She also gifted me a charcuterie board, which I was totally obsessed with. It was so thoughtful of her! Here’s to you, Ale, not only for your accomplishments, but also for your kind and generous soul.

Seriously! You deserve everything your heart desires. Congratulations on your huge accomplishment. I hope that when you look at these photos, you remember how special and worthy you are. You’re a boss, Alejandra!
