These two were super cute, super sticky sweet kind of couple, they love to be together. LOVE to be together. The fact that they wanted to be close made it much easier to take their photos, they were not shy about it. Unfortunately because I am SO BEHIND on blogging this session, I forgot a […]

Oh what a gorgeous couple these two were! I met them at the Arizona Bridal Show and they actually won my drawing for free engagement photos AND the discounted wedding photos. They should have gotten a lottery ticket right away. They are a wonderful couple, with a beautiful little girl and are hoping to be […]

So, these guys were KA-UTE from the moment I met them at the Arizona Bridal show in January this year. I remember thinking they were SO funny! Well, after that I got a call from Kira, telling me they needed to sign the contract and hire me right away. So, my original, hey lets meet […]

This baby. So technically he was a newborn, he was 2ish weeks old, which is much older than the newborns I normally take photos of, but he was perfect. He was an extremely developed baby, super aware and making all the cute little noises in the book, like my heart, my heart man. Little back […]

This was the first session of many after exhibiting at The Arizona Bridal Show. I was so glad to have met Ciara and Vince, they are a very funny and down to earth couple, and that is exactly why I chose to photograph their wedding next year. I met Ciara at the bridal show the […]

Babies are literally my favorite. I have only ever worked with girls though. So as far as figuring out what to do with a little boy, I had no idea. I was used to cute little head bands and pretty blankets and props, minimal props, but props. Let me tell you, taking photos of a […]

I LOVE taking photos of expecting mommas. The glow that everyone talks about is a real thing. It is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen to be honest. The love that comes from looking at their belly and knowing that this tiny little human they haven’t even met yet will be […]

This is the fourth time I have done pictures for this family, and I love them so much, I can’t even. So, obviously, taking their family photos was super fun. I hadn’t been to the salt river in FOREVER, last time I was there was for engagement photos, and I didn’t really remember much about […]

So to get started, I met these two, wow, so long ago now, especially at my age, SIX YEARS. Wow. This was back before they were even dating, and I was in my own world with my own relationship. A year or so later I started taking pictures, my sessions started at $50 each and […]

Wooo, as with most of the couples I have photographed lately I’ve known Claire a very long time. She is an incredibly level headed, tomboyish, Jeep driving, country girl… Also, very awkward in front of the camera, don’t judge, she literally said so before we started. (hehe) That is literally a joke, while it was […]
