This family arrived at their shoot looking picture perfect! Those sweaters that the boys are wearing?! LOVE! And can we talk about Cecilia’s heels?! That pattern is AMAZING! They ALL came with wonderful outfits and beautiful smiles! During the session, I mentioned that the boys were behaving so wonderfully and never took the smiles off […]

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 shoot in the desert so little, that every time I shoot in the desert, I bring up something about shooting in the desert. Was that sentence weird? Haha. The more I shoot in the desert, the more I appreciate the surroundings! And when someone visits from out of town, the desert is usually where […]

I took senior photos of Rachel last year, and that’s when Karen let me know she wanted to do some family photos! I love being able to do multiple shoots for one family, so I was so happy when we got this session scheduled! :) We met up on a cloudy day, but it worked, […]

Every year these posts get harder and harder. All I mean by that, is that it’s harder to narrow down the photos so that I don’t make you look through a blog post that has over 500 photos. ;)   This year has been such a beautiful one! I’ve enjoyed every bit of it! Even […]

This shoot was as last minute as they come! One of my lovely photographer friends, Bree of Bree Marie Photography, planned a shoot with one of my favorite, local fashion bloggers, Riss! She texted me a couple hours before and asked if I wanted to join in! I didn’t exactly look ready to go anywhere, […]

This family session was short and sweet! Short, because of the clouds and the rain. Sweet, because, well… they are overwhelmingly (in a GREAT way) sweet family!! And those young boys are two of the most polite young boys I’ve ever met! This lovely family bid on a shoot with me at an event for […]

I first took photos of this family a couple ago and you can see those photos here! They were a big family then and they’re still the same big family now! ;) They are all beautiful, obviously, but they are also so much fun to be around! Not just because the adorable children are incredibly entertaining, […]

I always love when I get invited into a family’s home to take photos of them enjoying life with a new, precious baby! This family is so tender, caring and sweet with each other, which is just one of the reasons why I loved documenting them! They are also beautiful and so full of light! And […]

I’ve known Ashlyn since high school! Ashlyn, Nicole and I spent most of our high school days together, laughing at everything and being ridiculously silly. We even had sleepovers every Thursday night to watch The O.C. together and eat Pei Wei. Haha. I miss those times, but I’m beyond grateful for the opportunity to catch up with […]
