I always find that winter sessions are much more fun and inspiring to look at in the summer. That may be because I live in the northern part of the country where winter lasts for months on end. So I’m excited to share today’s featured session from Stephanie Monique Photography.

Stephanie describes the session, “This session takes place 20 minutes south of Flagstaff, AZ. Kelsey, 16, a junior from Shadow Ridge High School in Surprise, AZ is the beauty shown in the pictures. Coming from the Phoenix area, 30 degree weather was very cold! There was hardly any snow left, but we managed to find some patches with a little bit left. Kelsey looked absolutely stunning in her long blue dress. She also wore her red winter coat that really popped in the images. It was a really fun session and something I had never done before. I am very happy with the way the images turned out.

Me and my HMUA are always looking for new concepts to tackle that are different from our regular senior sessions. We wanted to glam up our teens and take them to the snow. We live in the Phoenix are and were getting a little bored with the desert scene. I wanted something really glamorous. The snow and a beautiful gown go very well together. It’s not every day we get to do a shoot in the snow, so we made the most of it by doing a winter casual look as well. ”








Love the colors! It warms up the winter images so much. Find more of Stephanie’s work on Facebook or her website.
