Phoenix, Arizona Downtown Family Photographer Mini Photo Session I first met Caroline when she did a mentor session with me last year! I absolutely love getting the chance to share all that I’ve learned with other photographers! When I was starting out, I didn’t find many people willing to help me. I was trying to […]

Phoenix, Arizona Downtown Family Photographer Mini Photo Session I first met this family four years ago! It’s been so fun to see how the children have grown since then! One thing, out of many, that I love about this family is their positive attitudes! Let’s be real, there are plenty of people who don’t LOVE […]

I met Michelle and Jacob at Heritage Square, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to shoot, even with the several other photographers who are there everyday. We can all share, right? ;) They are so sweet to each other and they were just as sweet to me! Michelle is absolutely beautiful and […]
