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 […]

My first session with this family was a few years ago, when that cute, young boy was barely sitting up! It’s such a joy to be trusted to capture families as they grow and I’m so thankful this family has continued to give me that opportunity! Even though it was pretty hot outside when we […]

I don’t shoot at this location nearly enough, it’s such a fun spot with both pretty nature and charming buildings! And to be able to take photos at this spot again with a family as sweet as this one, was such a joy! How adorable are those young boys? And their parents are just as […]

I met these two on a beautiful, fall day and they brought their adorable pup along on the shoot! It’s always so refreshing taking photos of people who seem to actually enjoy and appreciate having their photo taken, and that’s how I felt with Allison and Matt! We had spent the afternoon walking around this […]

I’ve been able to take photos of this seriously adorable boy twice now, and I love each time more than the last. When Cooper’s mom came to me with the idea to take photos of him at Tolmachoff Farms, I was so excited to have the chance to shoot at a farm, since I don’t have a […]

I first met Addie and Carl a little over 2 and a half year ago when I had to opportunity to photograph their proposal!!! Addie wanted a shoot with her and her then boyfriend, Carl, to document their relationship. What she didn’t know if that Carl contacted me personally to let me know he would […]

I met this family when their littlest boy wasn’t even born yet! I loved them then and I love them even more now! They are truly some of the most kind, sincere and understanding people you could ever meet! :) Not only do I love them because they follow direction well and let me take […]

The way that these two love their daughter is absolutely beautiful! I feel like that may be thought of as a “given” … but there is something about photographing people that TRULY love being together and love each other with their whole hearts! It’s different. And that’s what it was like with the White family! […]

I’ve been getting a few sessions like this one… where the session is a family shoot but also a shoot to document a child turning a certain age. And I’ve been LOVING them! I’m the type of photographer, that wants you to get the absolute MOST out of your session as possible! So, instead of […]

Ever since my summer in Portland last year when I first had the chance to work with fashion bloggers, I’ve been dying to work with some in Phoenix since I fell in love with it. When I stumbled upon Aubrey’s website, I knew that I wanted to collaborate with her! She is SUCH a sweetheart […]
