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 […]

Phoenix, Arizona Desert Family Photographer Photo Session If you’re ever curious what the absolute nicest and kindest family is like, this is them! And they are incredible!

Fountain Hills, Arizona Family Photographer Photo Session It’s not easy for anyone to get up at sunrise and smile for a thousand photos the day after Christmas, but this family certainly made it look like a breeze! We did this session to document the whole family being in town for the holidays! And they invited […]

Phoenix, Arizona Desert Family Photographer Photo Session I’ve known this family since those boys were much younger. Eleven years younger, to be more specific.

That means this is technically the 5th decade that I’ve lived in! I don’t know how that math is possible… haha. I was […]

Phoenix, Arizona Downtown Family Photographer Mini Photo Session I first met Caroline when she did a mentor session with me last year! I absolutely love getting the chance to share all that I’ve learned with other photographers! When I was starting out, I didn’t find many people willing to help me. I was trying to […]

Phoenix, Arizona Downtown Family Photographer Mini Photo Session I first met this family four years ago! It’s been so fun to see how the children have grown since then! One thing, out of many, that I love about this family is their positive attitudes! Let’s be real, there are plenty of people who don’t LOVE […]

Scottsdale, Arizona Desert Family Photographer Photo Session It’s not always that you have an extended family session where every person seems excited to be getting photos taken! It’s even less common when that session is at sunrise! But the Bogue family showed up with the absolute best attitudes! Ready to not only smile and pose, […]
