Phoenix, Arizona Desert Maternity Photographer Photo Session Sierra and Josh were visiting for the weekend and wanted to make sure to get photos in the desert!

Phoenix, Arizona Portrait Photographer Photo Session I’ve been having so much fun getting to know and spend time with Brooke! We’ve been working together consistently for the past 7 months! I love these types of portrait sessions because there are no rules! Well, I guess I can always create any rules I want for my […]

Scottsdale, Arizona Desert Extended Family Photographer Photo Session This is my third session with the Montgomery and Averill families! Katie and Julie are sisters who both live in Scottsdale, so they combine their photo sessions! For the most part, I’m just capturing their families separately.

We’ve communicated over email before the session, but there’s still so much we don’t know about each other! Thankfully, with this family, the nerves quickly went away! They are just about […]

Scottsdale, Arizona Desert Family Photographer Photo Session The first time I had the chance to capture this family was almost exactly 4 years ago! When that littlest girl right there was just a baby! Now she basically runs the show, in a good way. And the whole family is here for it! I just love […]
