Corbin is 1! A smash of a smash cake session – Oh! MG Photography | Phoenix, AZ

Phoenix AZ Family Photographer Oh! MG photography

A long long time ago (actually just a year ago) I took on a family session client that booked a grow-with-me package. I was new to town and really needed the clientele, income, and long-term exposure.  Little did I know how AMAZING the experience would be as well as how completely welcoming and lax they were as a family.

I met the Bell’s while they were due with Corbin last year. He was my last newborn  I ever shot! 1st-48 hour session in the hospital, Newborn session at home, 3mo session,  6 mo session, 9 mo session and finally his grand finale of a 1-year smash cake.

Since meeting them and getting to know them we’ve had play dates, i’ve gotten numerous referrals from them, they’ve gotten numerous Starbucks gift cards from me, and I got the honor of shooting their entire extended family when they are all in town.

Without further ado, I present you Corbin in his blue frosting face glory.

The gorgeous Kauffmann family – Oh! MG Photography | Phoenix, AZ

This amazing family celebrated 4 years of marriage, and were about to celebrate both their kids birthdays soon after this shoot!

The infectious smiles and happiness I got from the kids really shined through in all these images. Mom and dad were so happy with their session and rightfully so! ( I sort of really love it as well!)

I’ve known this amazing little family since we lived in Twentynine Palms, CA. We just so happen to live in the same place – again!

They welcomed a new addition to their family and I got to help create memories. THIS is why I do what I do! I love being there for families. It’s an honor!

Best of luck with your sleepless nights to come, Becky! Nixon is adorable.

I may not offer Newborn sessions but I really love to visit families in the hospital! I offer Fresh 48 sessions in the Phoenix, AZ valley.  These sessions take place at the hospital while mom is still admitted and just before the journey home happens.

For more information on how book a Fresh 48 session, contact me! I’ve priced my sessions so that they may be gifted, affordably!! This is a great gift for someone expecting!!

I have a newfound respect for professional gingerbread house builders [image]: Oh! MG Photography | Phoenix, AZ

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.

Visiting Goldfield Ghost town in Apache Junction – Oh! MG Photography | Phoenix, AZ

Phoenix, AZ Children's Photography

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.

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!

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!
