Jessica and John

There is a beautiful story behind this photoshoot, one that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It’s not my story to tell though, but all you need to know is that these two kids have some amazing friends in their lives who care about them big time.

Jessica and John are brother & sister, graduating the same year, but definitely not twins. John had to “go and be an overachiever” Jessica said, so he skipped a grade and hence they got to do their senior portraits together on the same day. You can tell they are totally close anyways, so I don’t think they’d have it any other way.

On Monday evening we wandered around downtown Phoenix to various spots that I love, just hanging, posing and talking about goofy stuff. Mostly I took away from them that Captain America is a great film and I need to see it! Will do guys!

At the end of the shoot we grabbed the Mini Cooper they drove over in and snapped a couple of shots. Sadly they are selling the thing, so we wanted to grab some memories of it before it’s gone.

Thanks guys for braving the 108 degrees with me and for being a blast to hang out with!
