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*)

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!)

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!

Ever notice when you quiet the hustle and bustle around you and just look at what you’ve been given in life – the simple things in life are sometimes the most amazing and rewarding? This is an image taken in the waiting area of Grimaldi’s Pizzeria. There’s so much love in my heart for her.

we encountered the true test of “what the heck is there to do with a four-year-old-in-120-degree-weather this summer as we went through our first “Summer Break” with our daughter from preschool. When it’s 120 degrees outside you stretch yourself thin between housework, work work, vacation and trying to entertain the younger dependent children. Lets just say we learned bowling is a good source of entertainment but only for about 10 frames.. then she gets bored is pretty much done.

This is my favorite backdrop of all time because it photographs so gorgeously and it’s SO FUN and girly!

Papago Park here in Phoenix, AZ tries really hard to pretend like it’s not in the middle of an incredibly busy city and the desert. it was one of the first places our family visited while visiting Phoenix and it will always be a super cool park in my eyes.

I use to do these christmas minis when i first started out. I would book up real fast, tons of parents who wanted their kids dressed in green and red for Christmas before the holidays.
Now I’m too busy to run these, and most definitely wouldn’t have the same set ups or booking schedule as I did back then.
But these small shoots are what got me on my feet and got me clientele. They got a profit flow going for me to improve my gear all while working and practicing every day.
Don’t forget where you came from! Every day is a sweet little gift and it’s up to you what you do with it.(hit the ground running!)

These are more than just photos to some. These are days that they got to be in the moment and just enjoy the occasion that I was hired for. This image is from a baptism I was hired to capture. Such a well behaved baby for just a special occasion (and that dress!!) Mom & dad didn’t have to worry about pictures and got to be in the moment. whether its a birthday or a baptism I think it’s wise to hire help in the photo department to take stress and pressure off the hosts or main party to better enjoy the memories!
