I remember when I graduated from high school – felt like that was the moment I really became AN ADULT. A new life was waiting for me. Now we watch those who were just kids – graduating. Do you have a high school senior who is about to graduate? Congratulations! This is a HUGE milestone – just huge. With a 12 year old and 7 year old we are only briefly getting glimpses of the road ahead….. and boy are we not ready for this stage yet! At Chad Dahlquist Photography we would love to capture the essence of graduate in a way that is tasteful and really shows off their authentic and vibrant personality. Do they love skateboarding? Do they love to play guitar or read in a special corner of your house? Have they been in 4H for zillions of years and are raising champion pigs? Let’s get their 4-legged friends involved too! We love anything out of the ordinary. Contact us today to arrange a dream photo session that you’ll all be excited about! To celebrate we would love to give you a GIFT for both you AND your senior.

Excited for this weekend! It’s the 32nd annual Arizona’s Families for Home Education Convention and we’ve been invited to photograph kids and teens for the Student ID Cards that they are selling as a service to the community. We have donated a photography session for 1-2 hours on-location within Phoenix/Scottsdale for the silent auction benefiting both AFHE and the Home School Foundation Arizona Ambassador Fund. At our booth we’ll also be offering a drawing for a chance to win a free family mini session! If you’ll be there come over and say hi! If you are thinking about homeschooling, the AFHE website has a ton of information as well as links to support groups around the valley. HSLDA is also an important resource available to homeschooling families throughout the nation.
Congratulations to Rutger for graduating early this year – well ahead of his peers! Chad had the privilege of photographing him for his senior photos – really for his parents BUT he ended up loving the photos himself. He wasn’t excited about having photos taken at all…. and we knew that. Accompanied by Rutger’s dad – Chad was able to photograph him completely at ease and as himself. There is nothing worst than looking at uncomfortable photos of yourself thinking ‘boy, that doesn’t look like me’ or ‘what a goofy smile I have!’ 🙂 The three of them had a super fun time together and didn’t get back til dark. Chad took a combination of close up photos suitable for his Senior page in the yearbook and for prints for family – as well as more active or dramatic shots that Rutger would enjoy even more for his own memories. Everyone was thrilled with the results! His mom said that she loved seeing the different personalities of her son in the photos. He’s an honorable young man with a great future ahead of him!
