Scottsdale, Arizona Portrait Photographer Happy New Year and happy 2020! Last year was life-changing for my business!

Another year down! And I’m still feeling just as blessed as ever to be able to do something I love as a job! This year happened to be extra special for me though! Because this year, I became an AUNT for the first time ever! AND, I got to be the one to document it! […]
