Scottsdale, Arizona Family Photographer Desert Maternity Photos Two years ago I took this couple’s engagement photos and it is still one of my favorite sessions! So, of course, I jumped at the opportunity to take maternity photos of them in the desert! And it was HOT. I think I always let myself forget how hot […]

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! They were in town for a work retreat with Josh’s company. I know that might not matter, but when I asked him what he does, he basically told me […]

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? That means this is technically the 5th decade that I’ve lived in! I don’t know how that math is possible… haha. I was […]

For the past few years, I’ve donated a photo session to a silent auction held by Young Lives with Young Life. They’re an organization that helps teens mothers become the women and mothers that God created them to be and get encouragement from leadership and others who are experiencing the same thing. The lovely person […]

I’m forever grateful for a job that gives me the opportunity to reconnect with people from my past! I knew Jake in high school and we even acted in a couple school plays together. So, when I heard from his wife Cassie and how they wanted to schedule a maternity shoot with me, I was […]

I’ve been wanting to do more indoor, lifestyle maternity sessions and this is the second one I’ve gotten to do this week! I love outdoor, maternity photos… there is something about the sun backlighting a gorgeous, baby belly! And I’m thankful we got to do a little bit of both for this shoot. But these […]

You may have seen this couple’s baby announcement a few months ago and if you did, you already know how special these two are to me! This is my sister and brother-in-law, who also happen to be two of my very best friends in the world! And now I get to have a mini them, […]

This post will be short and sweet, because we didn’t do a full shoot for this! There’s not much variety, okay, there’s not any variety because this was for one purpose only! These photos announced that MY SISTER and BROTHER-IN-LAW are pregnant and expecting a baby! This is the first baby for our whole family, […]

I take photos of a lot of children, and I absolutely love it! However, with children, it’s much harder to get them to do what you’re asking of them. Sometimes, I get so use to photographing adorable and wild children, then I forget what it’s like to do a shoot with only adults. When I […]

Oh, these two! Can they be expecting a child all the time so that I can forever take maternity pictures of them?! Haha, kidding of course. ;) Because even though I love how they look as an expecting couple, I know they look even MORE amazing as parents! :) These two are so incredibly comfortable […]
