Getting into the mood of the season – Oh! MG Photography | Phoenix, AZ

Today with my dad in town I decided now would be the best time to indulge in some sugar cookies and have fun while we make them, too. Ive never made successful sugar cookies, but this time I follwed a Martha Stewart recipe almost to the “T” & I think they turned out fabulous! Want that sugar cookie recipe? Here it is!

Baby “B” 6 month mini (why you should grow with me, Oh! MG) Phoenix AZ Family & Children’s Photography | Oh! MG Photography

Baby “B” & his 6-month grow-with-me Mini went great!

I love the “B” family. I am SO over the moon happy that they decided to take a leap of faith last year and sign me on to be their sons photographer for a full year. They signed on with a Grow-With-Me package.

A grow with me package includes a 3,6,9, and 12 month mini session, the 12 month session being a full session with an optional smash cake. At the end of the year a small album is made and sent to you to remember your child’s first year!

Oh! MG plans to add this awesome oppritunity to the menu in 2015. For more information on how to get in the Grow-With-Me family contact me via the contact link and get in touch with me! Lets make an awesome session happen!

Sunset from South Phoenix, AZ – Family & Children’s Photography | Oh! MG Photography, Phoenix, AZ

There was a day when my daugther wanted to see the sunset, and my husband was working late. We drove on back to South Mountain (our back yard, pretty much) and hiked not far from Scorpions Gulch to view this amazing sunset. Just another memory that I’ll get to look back on some day. Little momma-daughter moments we’ll probably forget one day but can look back on with pictures to remember. anoth reason why you should #takerandomtripswithyourkids

If you ever feel like letting me tag along and capture your family during a south moutanin sunset, or any sunset for that matter – find the contact link above and we can get together and make that happen!

I successfully failed at a 30-day image challenge (and how!) – Oh! MG Photography |Phoenix, AZ

So, with life the way it currently is, I tried to set unattainable goals and of course to no ones surprise I completely bombed just shy of the finishing line.

It was reminiscent of running a 200 meter dash in track and hitting the wall with just 50 meters to go.

I watched everyone pass the finish line as I was like WHY AM I SLOWING DOWN?

Here’s a hint:

Untitled-1

It’s balls to the wall, go go go, make that money, make that dinner, fold that laundry,

triple your mileage on your car, forget to shower sometimes, can’t wait to sleep,

sometimes fall asleep at the computer- season.

I haven’t experienced a season like this in a few years; I partially attribute that to my side editing.

I’m racing with thoughts and ideas and then they’re interrupted with real paid work and then I get side tracked and then i remember about my cool idea

and dive back into it but then I remember I needed to do this and that and this and that and that and this…

…and before you know it i’m rocking back and forth in the fetal position in the corner crying and blabbering blather about file transfer rates and layer masks.

If you’re a photographer and you’re reading this you know the feeling of the popular meme

where the character says, “screw this! It’s friday!” and throws up a handful of papers, directly after that there’s a image of the same character picking up the papers (often replaced with “PSD” file icons) that says, “just kidding I’m a photographer we don’t have weekends.”

It’s. So. True.

So that’s why my 30-day photo challenge brought upon myself failed.

That’s why my efforts to boost my SEO failed, although I think it really worked when I was doing it.

LIFE HAPPENED.

With that said:

I suppose I have work to do.

Day 21 : pre-monsoon season clouds

While up in Flagstaff, I captured these pre-monsoon season clouds. Amazingly goofy and  abundant in number.

Tip for Arizona photographers: go places even when theres a chance of rain. You’ll thank yourself.

One day these two boys will be on the cover of GQ and I will have had taken their pictures years prior. Such sweet little men with a pretty awesome mom & dad. ( & if mom has her way, one of her boys will be married to my little girl! ;] *calm down husbands, i’m kidding… sorta*)

lineDay 19: another classic

This is yet another favorite image, mostly because of the subject and how near and dear she is to my heart. But i think this is a gorgeous image besides the emotional attachment. The colors, the soft feel, the sharpness. Add pearls to any 2 year old and it’s gonna be a hit :) (this was taken in my favorite tree from my ‘old stomping grounds’ post, too!)

Day 18 : lifestyle photographs

When you’ve got a little one who doesn’t answer commands very well, lifestyle photography i the way to go. Especially when it shows the love between mom, dad & the little one!

This is a very true friend I have here in Phoenix, AZ. She owns His & Her Photo and specializes in birth & newborn photography.  i love that she trusted me with these images because they’re some of my all time favorites!
