Hi Leah!

My niece, Ally (Verwer) Milack gave me your name for photography! :)

I would like to have family photos (6 of us) and am wondering if you have any mini sessions left on Nov 25?

Thank you!


Laizure | Newborn

Newborn sessions, even though I do a lifestyle approach in the home, can be quite unpredictable! Because newborns aren’t on a schedule, and they don’t communicate the best, haha. But sweet Noah was an angel for this whole session! He slept for the whole time, until the very end where he wanted to move a little, and he made the most adorable sounds while he was sleeping! And how cute is this nursery?! Newborn sessions are extra fun and special to me when they’re for first time parents like these two! I loved capturing them adoring and loving on their sweet, new addition! :)

Samantha | Senior

I love when people trust me completely when it comes to their photo shoot location! Samantha wanted greenery, but it can be hard to find in Phoenix during the middle of summer before the rain comes and make things green again. So we went to a couple different spots around Old Town Scottsdale to find the greenest areas! This first location is literally surrounded by parking lots and cars on every side of it. But Samantha, her mom and her sister, who came along for the shoot, didn’t question me at all! And I’m so thankful they didn’t because I love the photos we were able to capture in all these random spots! Samantha is such a gorgeous girl with beautiful eyes! But she also has such a sweet heart and gentle spirit! :)

Mulvhill | Family

I have known this family since that curly haired girl in the blue dress had just turned 2 years old! Before I started photography, I was a full time nanny! I still babysit and love being with children, but I don’t get to see these 3 girls nearly as much as I use to! I spent 5 years babysitting them and having the opportunity to watch them grow up into beautiful and sweet young girls! It’s such a privilege to be a part of a child’s life as they grow up and I don’t take that for granted.


When Christine told me she wanted to do a family session at this house that she is selling for the owner, I was so excited!! Not just to get the chance to look through this AMAZING home in Silverleaf, but to see this whole family again! This shoot was so natural and effortless, probably because I’ve known them for so long! And I absolutely loved being able to take these photos! :)

Brooke | Portraits

Pink hair, a blue dress and flowy purple dress… what more could I ask for?! This was the cotton candy colored shoot of my dreams! I love color so much, so colorful hair is so fun for me to shoot! And Brooke is so natural in front of the camera and absolutely beautiful! After the shoot ended, we were saying bye to each other and ended up talking for at least another 45 minutes just getting to know each other and realizing how much we had in common! I love leaving shoots with not only photos I love, but with a new friend! :)

Kendra and Plum | Portraits

Oh my goodness, these girls are the sweetest, giggliest, most darling and adorable girls ever! I loved taking photos of them on the kitchen floor and the kitchen counter and basically all over the kitchen! Haha. Because how dreamy is this kitchen created and designed by Chisel Built?! But we took a few in the bedroom too! ;) I could take photos of these two forever! I loved watching their relationship and being able to capture it too!

A Day to Cherish Weddings | Portraits

I heard about this session about 3 hours before it was suppose to happen. I wasn’t the original photographer for this shoot, but because of a date mixup with this team and the photographer they had planned, they needed someone else on short notice! And I happened to be available that afternoon! And I’m so glad I was because this team is so beautiful and kind and I loved photographing them! And they gave me the sweetest gift after the session was over, but what else would you expect from a team of amazing wedding planners?! :)
