I love family sessions! All kinds of them! But it’s extra nice when I have a family that is as easy going as this one! We took some classic, posed portraits but then we did quite a few shots of them just having around in lounge chairs too! They were just making the most out […]

Towards the end of May, we’re sometimes in the 100 degree days already and almost always in the 90’s. It’s not so fun to shoot in those temperatures, but since this is where I live, I make the most of it. But, on this day we ended up having beautiful weather, beautiful… but extra windy. […]

It is so special for me to have the opportunity to continue capturing a family through the years and watch them grow together. I can’t even remember how many shoots I’ve done for this family off the top of my head, because there have been so many. I’ve been able to capture their Christmas photos […]

I’ve known Christine and Matt since high school, they were in my sister’s grade but Matt had a sister that was in my grade. Did you follow that? Because I realize how that sounded all over the place. Haha. I’ve had the chance to photograph this crew along with more of their family when I’ve […]

My sister and I spent every summer of our childhood on a Disneyland vacation! There are so many memories I cherish and the photos we have from those times are so precious to us! So, to be able to go to Disneyland with my sister, her husband and my first ever nephew, was such a […]

I’ve done a few shoots at this location, but this was my first time doing a family session here. I’m so fond of this spot, it’s right off the highway, about halfway to Sedona from Phoenix. It’s a rest stop and probably doesn’t look like much to people who aren’t constantly seeking out the beauty […]

Oh my goodness, this family was SO much fun!! The whole time they had smiles on their faces, even when the camera wasn’t pointed at them! They were making jokes with each other, being playful and had the absolute best attitudes! Usually I do what I can to get a few photos of people laughing, […]

I had the chance to take maternity photos of Ally while Teddy was still in her belly at this same location! So it was so much fun, to not only meet that adorable baby boy, but to photograph their growing family in this same spot! This family is so sweet, talented and beautiful!! And Isla […]

I just met a few members of this family last month when I took graduation photos for Evan and also photographed one of these individual families at their home! I don’t think I’ve ever done 3 shoots for one family within a month, but I loved it and I’d happily do it again! This big […]

I met a couple of these family members when I photographed the Scottsdale Christian Academy Spiritline a couple years ago! And it was so fun for me to meet the rest of the family and have the chance to photography them! They are all so sweet with each other and excited about photos, which makes […]
