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 […]

Oscar & Adriana’s Downtown Mesa Session

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 […]

Zach and Claire’s Mountain Engagement

So I have been making a bit of a pact with myself to use more film, and when my digital had to be repaired, it ended up being super good that I had started collecting film camera and film, especially since I already had a couple sessions scheduled and hey, people need to send out […]

Sweeney Family

Oh gosh. I can’t even begin to tell you guys how EXCITED I am that this happened!!! For the last year I have been contemplating submitting my work to a wedding blog, but there has always been the fear of rejection, as with all humans, this is pretty much a thing. So, I decided to […]

I’m not the person who likes to talk about my issues. Let alone on my business website. But, mental health is one of those things that so many people still don’t understand. Consider, for instance, anxiety disorders, which affects 40 MILLION adults age 18 or older in the US alone. 40 MILLION, that’s 18% of […]

Anxiety and Life

Now, I know there have been tons of these all over the place, so why another one? Let me start by saying that I have never been married, I’ve never planned my own wedding, but I’ve seen my dear friends do it, and what is the one thing they almost always regret? Their photographer. This […]

Baby Aliyah

*Warning* this blog post is very long and FULL of photos, please be patient! Ugh, and I thought I was swooning over their engagement pictures. I wont lie, I cried like a baby when they said their vows. Taylor has been a dear friend since childhood, and I knew Dillon was the one the moment […]

Dillon & Taylor – Summer Wedding

This little one kills me. She’s too perfect for her own good, a total ham. If all that wasn’t enough, she’s gonna be drop dead gorgeous like her mommy and well, the world better watch out for those ladies. Bo is suuuper calm, so quiet, a major wiggle worm, but that didn’t stop her from […]

Baby Bo – Newborn

Where do I begin? I’m so happy for these two! Dayana and Johnny were one of my first ever sessions with a DSLR camera, my little rebel t5, that feels like sooo long ago. Maybe that calls for a throwback picture? They are still adorable. Anyway, same place, Boyce Thompson Arboretum, my all time favorite […]
