I got this gingerbread house for black friday, it’s a Wilton brand from Michaels and on the outside box it’s all perfect and it says hey you can make 4 little houses! woah, super cool, right? That sucker got thrown in my cart super fast.
So fast forward to my daughter relentlessly begging and asking, “when are we gonna make the gingerbread houses?”
OKAY FINE WE’LL MAKE THE HOUSES.
I got everyting out and set up.. open up the instructions and its literally step by step on how to make whats on the box. So much for free-will.
anyway– lots of newfound respect for those who make the models for this stuff, or even can make it without cheating and using subsitutes for product-imagery purposes.
The frosting was more stubborn than a toddler getting shots at the doctors.
The candy required tweasers to pick up and strategically place on the houses. (if they stood up because they’re free-standing, dependant on icing as glue.)
props Wilton, props.

We visted the Goldfield Ghost town in Apache Junction today to show my dad some sights. I’ve never been there, cute little place. It’s a real ghost town! Old buildings, old retired machineary; a true tourist spot for sure. We stopped here after we visited the Superstition Mountain Museum and learned some facts about the exhibits there.
Bored on a weekend? Old Western enthusiast? It’s worth a trip if you like to explore, take road trips, and take pictures like me!
I brought and used my 105mm Sigma 2.8f for some new shots coming out of my camera. Other than that my 35mm & 50mm were on.

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!

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.

Sometimes, less is more. Sometimes, you don’t want to clutter a moment with insignificant things and focus on what is the real focus. There’s something about negative space that I love, and for that, I have extra love for this image!

I use to live in the middle of a different desert where the creative natural backdrops were HARD to come by. This line of trees, and this type specifically photographed SO well for me for the time I spent in Twentynine Palms, CA. I always used this location and it really took a while for others to find. I didn’t hide it, but at the same time no one asked about it. I love how the trees catch the light and look so smooth. A lot of memories when I think back at these pictures, and this couple seriously was a hoot. Their first baby and the soon to be parents were so excited. Wish I could have stuck around to follow their family with photography, I’m sure their baby was a true blessing.

I had the honor of capturing these memories (others call them photographs) for a mother and father of a son who was being commissioned as a 2nd lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps. The dad himself is Marine.
What a sense of achievement they both must have felt, and continue to feel!
I still wish the best for this family. :)
