Referrals really are the highest complement a small business owner can receive. Alexa's mom called me to schedule her senior portraits after I had photographed one of their friends previously. There have been quiet a few reoccurring themes this year with senior portraits. The first and most annoying is the smoke. Spokane as well as Montana, Idaho, Oregon and California have been under blankets of smoke during the Fire Season 2017. So I have spent the Summer coordinating with my clients to work around hazardous air conditions. The second is I have been photographing High School Seniors with their little fur babies. Which I LOVE! As a fabulous cat lady myself, I am always very excited to create portraits that include pets!When Alexa's mom Jena contacted me we talked about ideas for this session. A colorful downtown session that incorporated the colorful urban art of downtown Spokane was what Alexa was envisioning. Of course, since I love color I was very excited for a session outside of the locations and scenery I normally use (although I love those too!!!). So we finally got a break in the smoke and Alexa, her mom Jena, their adorable pug princess named Piglet and I went on a journey through downtown Spokane. We went on a search for a specific painted wall that we never did find. But in the process we had a ton of fun together and found some amazing backdrops. We stumbled upon a favorite alleyway of mine which is iconic in Spokane Washington. The Rock legends wall showcasing Jimmy Hendricks and Ringo Star.
This color filled session was a blast, Thank you so much ladies for the fun filled evening and thank you for choosing Kim Stadler Photography to photograph your senior portraits!
