Scottsdale, Arizona Desert Family Photographer Photo Session This shoot was nearly a year in the making! Becky contacted me early in 2019 to plan this session, since her and her little family of three would be visiting all the way from Australia! And it was worth the wait! It was quite the cold day, well, […]

Scottsdale, Arizona Desert Extended Family Photographer Photo Session This is my third session with the Montgomery and Averill families! Katie and Julie are sisters who both live in Scottsdale, so they combine their photo sessions! For the most part, I’m just capturing their families separately. This way they can take advantage of splitting a session […]

I feel so honored to have been able to capture the growth of this beautiful family. Years ago, I had the privilege to photograph them while they celebrated officially adopting three of their children! And I also had more chance to photograph them as their family grew again. And now it’s growing even more, and […]

As someone who loves people, I really have picked out one of the best jobs! Having the opportunity to meet so many incredible people while doing something I love doing, is something I refuse to take for granted! And this family, is one of the reasons I feel that way! From the very start of […]

This session was quite the adventure! As you browse through the photos, you’ll see the drastic change of lighting that came, all within an hour period! We started this session in full sun, a great view of the mountains and a bit of wind. We end the session with no sun, dust covering the clouds […]
