Tripp | Family

This was the only day that this whole family would be able to be together at the same time to take these photos, but the forecast said we’d be getting plenty of rain. And we did. This was suppose to be a sunrise shoot, but with all the dark clouds and the rain, we pushed it a  couple hours later. And then pushed it again. Since the sky was filled with clouds, timing it around the sun wasn’t necessary. We were able to do about 40% of the shoot with no rain, but there were a few times we had to find shelter. Haha. But in the end, we made it work and I think the dark clouds really gave it a nice winter look! ;) Also, how beautiful is this family?! Plus, they are incredibly kind too! :)

Boyce | Family

Most of these beautiful people were visiting Phoenix all the way from Australia! So, since this isn’t their normal scenery, they wanted to make sure to get some desert, family photos. Every single person in this family was an absolute joy to be around! They are all so kind, patient, beautiful and I could listen to their accents all day. ;)

Candyce and Chris | Couple

Since I don’t live in the East Valley, I don’t make it out there that often. But, when someone I’m photographing wants to have the shoot on that side of town, I’m glad I get an excuse to make it over there! I love the farms and landscapes and open spaces! And I LOVE that Candyce and Chris wanted this shoot to be by these silos and were also able to bring a family member’s beautiful, red truck to add even more charm and character to the shoot! These two are adorable and I loved what they planned for this shoot! :)

Gilman | Family

I met this family at the end of 2016 and I’m so thankful that I’ve already had the opportunity to work with them again! This shoot was to get some updated photos of Jacob for his 3rd birthday, but we made sure to get some new family photos too! This family works in the photo industry as well, so I feel honored they decided to continue to use me as their photographer! Jacob is one of the most adorable 3 year old’s ever and his parents are so kind! :)

Michael | Senior

This shoot almost didn’t happen on this afternoon. The forecast said that a storm was rolling in, so I contacted Michael and about an hour before the shoot we decided to reschedule since the sky was dark and rainy. Then about 20 minutes later, we saw a little bit of the sun, so we decided to risk it! And it worked out! We didn’t get rained on and we were able to keep the shoot on the same date we had scheduled. Weather is unpredictable, so I’m thankful with people can be flexible! :) I loved the suit that Michael wore for the first part of the shoot! He is such a kind, young man and I’m so happy for him graduating college! :)

Willoughby | Family

Dorothy, the mama of that adorable baby boy you see below, is a graphic designer (who also does amazing work with florals) who I’ve come to know over the past couple years. I met Dorothy and her husband, Shane, when I took their engagement photos a couple years ago! And since then, I’ve had the chance to photograph them a few more times, including this most recent time! We talked about doing newborn photos of baby Max, but she decided to wait until he was showing a little bit more facial expressions and personality, and clearly, we chose a good time because he is precious in these photos! :) And if you ever need a graphic designer or a florist, visit Dorothy’s website, Poppy Design Co! :)

Chante | Portraits

Shooting with Chante is always such an enjoyable and easy afternoon! She is so incredibly natural and effortless in front of the camera, which makes my job a little too easy, in a really fun way! ;) She is a fashion and lifestyle blogger over at TheFoxTalks and you can visit her blog an social media pages to see more of her beautiful face and amazing fashion! Also, being able to shoot with all these BRIGHT colors, made this shoot even more fun for me, if that is even possible. ;)
