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 met Natalia at a, new to me, location… ASU Gammage! It was so fun exploring this new spot with her while walking around and chatting and learning about her life! We had a little bit of a breeze this afternoon, sometimes it can be overwhelming during a photo shoot, but this was the perfect […]

We took these photos at Old Main on the ASU campus at a busy time of year. I’m so thankful Shelby was willing to be patient and hang out and chat while other people were taking their photos around the same property! I love taking high school senior photos, it’s such a monumental time in […]

Graduating college is such a big and amazing accomplishment, so it only makes sense to document it with super fun photos! When these pretty girls came to me with this idea, to not only capture some classic portraits with some of their graduation attire, but to also pop champagne! Yes, some of the champagne spraying […]

I met this family at the end of 2016 and I’m so thankful that I’ve already had the opportunity to work with them again! This shoot was to get some updated photos of Jacob for his 3rd birthday, but we made sure to get some new family photos too! This family works in the photo […]

Soledad is an adorable little girl who needed some updated modeling photos and her mom had a very specific type of shoot in mind! She wanted editorial style fashion photos, so we went to the most modern location I know of to capture these photos! Soledad is a complete pro! She is beautiful and has […]

This girl. I don’t even know what to say, because the photos speak for themselves, but I’ll say something anyway. Haha. She totally ROCKED this session. She’s a senior… a SENIOR who hasn’t done this whole photo shoot thing before, but you would have never known because, look at her! She is the definition of […]

I met Meg to take some photos for her on windy day, which usually worries me a bit, but we made it work…. or rather, SHE made it work! ;) Meg has been a police dispatcher since she ended high school and now she’s looking into starting an academy this summer to be a police […]

Lila and her family moved to Phoenix last year a little bit after she was born and I’m so happy they did because I’ve had the opportunity to take photos documenting her fist year! I’ve taken her 6 month photos, 9 month photos and now her 12 month photos! It’s been so much fun to watch […]

Okay, seriously… what is up with all these gorgeous seniors?! It’s WAY to easy to do my job when I have someone like Brooklyn in front of my camera! First of all, look at her! She is absolutely beautiful and my camera couldn’t take a bad photo of her! Second, do you see her outfits?! […]
