Scottsdale, Arizona Portrait Photographer Happy New Year and happy 2020! Last year was life-changing for my business! I grew my business more in the last 6 months than I did in the 5 years before that. It’s not that I wasn’t growing before, I’ve always made an effort to grow in my craft. However, I […]

Scottsdale, Arizona Fairmont Princess Family Photographer Photo Session Happy New Year! With every year that passes, I can’t help but think time is going faster each time! How are we in 2020?

Another year down! And I’m still feeling just as blessed as ever to be able to do something I love as a job! This year happened to be extra special for me though! Because this year, I became an AUNT for the first time ever! AND, I got to be the one to document it! […]

I had the chance to take maternity photos of Ally while Teddy was still in her belly at this same location! So it was so much fun, to not only meet that adorable baby boy, but to photograph their growing family in this same spot! This family is so sweet, talented and beautiful!! And Isla […]

I just met a few members of this family last month when I took graduation photos for Evan and also photographed one of these individual families at their home! I don’t think I’ve ever done 3 shoots for one family within a month, but I loved it and I’d happily do it again! This big […]

I met a couple of these family members when I photographed the Scottsdale Christian Academy Spiritline a couple years ago! And it was so fun for me to meet the rest of the family and have the chance to photography them! They are all so sweet with each other and excited about photos, which makes […]
