One of my favorite venues for senior photo sessions is Downtown Phoenix. And Boulder Creek senior Ashley nailed it.
The colorful murals and graffiti provide that urban, gritty edge. Opting for solid, neutral colors like the black Ashley chose -- or denims and greys -- is the best choice so you don't clash with the bold color pattern.
The exterior of the Orpheum Theater offers beautiful, classic architecture and gorgeous earthy colors. Sidewalk photos offer that fun street vibe.
Downtown photo sessions will work any time of year, although, understandably, I've never had anyone choose one to do one in the July or August heat. But every other time of year is perfect and typically shaded.
Take a peek at some of my favorites from Ashey's session:
