It’s Senior picture time! I love working with seniors… they’ll climb on whatever rock you want and can be way more adventurous for photos. Krista has lived in Las Vegas her whole life and wanted something that showed the part of Las Vegas that she loved: the desert rocks by Red Rock Canyon, the desert landscape, and a place where she would go hiking with her family on the weekends as she grew up. Just on the other side of the entrance to Red Rock Canyon is the tucked away treasure of Calico Basin.
Calico Basin has it all: the red rocks, trees, grass (or this time of year more brush). It also has elevated walkways around the area to view the scenes or if you’re adventurous you can walk on trails up to the rocks. The area was great for this senior pictures session, but next time I’ll bring my hiking shoes instead!
Here are some of my favorites from the shoot:
