I have been wanting to photography a ballerina for as long as I’ve been doing photography, and just never had the opportunity. And now I finally had the chance to do it, and she’s a PREGNANT ballerina! This is one of my all time favorite sessions ever, because how could it not be?! Leigh is […]

I have been falling in love with maternity shoots and this session just sent me even more over the edge! Ally was visiting family in town and flew from Hawaii while being this far along, she is pretty much amazing! And I’m so happy that she trusted me enough to try these very random, new […]

This post will be short and sweet, because we didn’t do a full shoot for this! There’s not much variety, okay, there’s not any variety because this was for one purpose only! These photos announced that MY SISTER and BROTHER-IN-LAW are pregnant and expecting a baby! This is the first baby for our whole family, […]

Rhonda is a friend of mine and I was so excited when she asked me to take her maternity photos! I love all kinds of maternity photos, but especially when it’s your first baby, they’re so special! These two are such a lovely couple and Rhonda is gorgeous expecting mother! I love that they brought […]

Monika has been in my life since we were in 2nd grade when we were best friends. We went through all the normal highs and lows that elementary school friends go through. ;) And I’m so thankful that we’ve not only been able to keep in touch with each other, but then I was able […]

I don’t shoot in a studio very often… okay, fine, I don’t EVER shoot in a studio, haha. But it was such a fun change of pace! And let’s be honest, these two would look amazing and beautiful no matter where they are being photographed! I loved watching how supportive and encouraging Mark was to […]

DeserRai is the brilliant mind behind this shoot! She picked the location, the outfits and the extra touches! And I’m so glad she did because clearly that is something she is amazing at! It was a warm… I mean hot… summer evening but you can’t even tell because these three totally nailed this shoot. DeserRai […]

One of  my favorite things about my job is being able to travel for photo shoots! I love Phoenix, because my family is here and it’s where I’ve grown up and the sunsets are spectacular. But my heart longs to travel to see more nature and water and so much more of the beauty that […]
