welcome to

This was my first photo shoot after spending 5 days in the hospital last month for a spontaneous procedure that I needed done. I will give you the short version of how my hospital stay came about. I was in the worse pain of my life, went to the emergency room, was admitted to the […]

I first met Jennifer in the spring and had the opportunity to take photos of her and her two adorable children to get some playful shots for her website, Henny and Coco. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph her and her family again! She is such a sweet, kind and creative soul and […]

This session had to be rescheduled, because when we showed up the week before, a strong storm came out of nowhere and by the time we both arrived at the location, there was inches of rain water everywhere around us. But, we all talked about how much we love rain and then picked a new […]

I did Abbey’s older sister’s senior photos early in my photography career and I’m so happy that she wanted me to take hers! One of my favorite things is when families continue to give me chances to photograph the special times in their life! And I don’t take it for granted! And Abbey is just […]

I enjoyed taking photos of this family on an early morning at the park in Old Town Scottsdale! It was so beautiful and peaceful, since there weren’t many other people there at that time. I loved watching how sweet and caring they were with each other and to be able to capture photos of them […]

Kennedy wanted to go to Old Town Scottsdale for the senior photos and it reminded me that I don’t go there as much as I should for shoots! It was lovely walking around the streets and stopping whenever we saw a building or a wall that looking like it’d be a lovely background! Kennedy is […]

Fall mini sessions only happen once a year, in the fall, obviously. ;) I occasionally do Spring mini sessions too, but those aren’t guaranteed. I love being able to offer these mini sessions during the fall season for families who only want a few photos instead of a full session. I spent the afternoon at […]

Shooting with Chante is always such an enjoyable and easy afternoon! She is so incredibly natural and effortless in front of the camera, which makes my job a little too easy, in a really fun way! ;) She is a fashion and lifestyle blogger over at TheFoxTalks and you can visit her blog an social […]

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 […]

This was my first year of fall mini sessions and I loved doing them! I thought it might be stressful trying to take enough beautiful images in only 25 minutes, but it was much easier than I thought I enjoyed every single mini session! This family was one of my first mini’s and I’m so […]
