baby C - birthday portraiture

Happy Birthday to one of my favorite little girls,
Miss C.
 You may remember her newborn session,
born 12-12-12

She follows behind four older brothers (who are equally awesome).
As you may imagine,
this little girl...
she is "kind of a big deal"

We had fun playing with miss C in
a little reserved "wonderland" in the groves.
 A perfect place to 
keep the focus of one beautiful little lady,
who is turning ONE.
 I had to get a shot
of momma here as we all know this is "real life"
with a busy baby :)

Happy  birthday sweet girl,
you're loved and adored by many.
You were worth the wait.
 "And though she be but little
she is fierce"

it's the best time of the year...

I ask you...
how do you not provide
"picture perfect" Christmas photos 
with clients that look like these?

let's not fool ourselves, 
It's difficult to find a "holiday" backdrop in the desert.
 So we pack up some festive props
and head for the local orange groves.
some backlighting, smiles, 
and memorable fun.

Hope your holiday season is gearing up to be
the best yet!


The R. Family

Tons of cute faces, up ahead...
These darlings are part of a big, loving, wild, FUN family!
And I can say that with all certainty
as they're MY family...

 These superhero parents
are raising some kids into pretty awesome people.

AKA Supermom

 This sign is perched in their beautiful home and we grabbed it on our way out the door,
knowing we could do something fun with it!

"Cherish these moments,
as that's what memories are made of"

Love and miss you all...


The V. sisters

These are 3 beauties that are among my favorite to photograph...

One look at them and you can see why!
I'm a light chaser and although we had some delays on getting those rays,
these sisters are a dream to photograph

and make any session a breeze.

...even in 105* degree Phoenix summer temps

Back to School Portraiture - phoenix custom photography

It's that time of year again...
 Sharpened no. 2 pencils & crisp new tablets
back to school shopping 
fresh haircuts
and new routines, bursting with opportunities
it's saying goodbye to carefree late nights
and hello to structure and schedules.

We had fun sweating it out in these late summer portraits,
complete with some impromptu secret telling and giggles...
hard to believe
our new school year has arrived

 we soaked up every bit of leisure we could from summer
and we're ready for what waits ahead.

Happy Birthday, America!
We are celebrating you with a day of hometown activities:
sand castle competitions, music, street party, ending with fireworks by the lake.

We're thankful to live in this great nation.
And salute those who protect our freedom.
God Bless America!

Wishing you a safe & happy 4th,
from my family to yours.


Miss G / jr high tween photography - phoenix

This session was promised long ago to a sweet girl.

When she was entering junior high,
we'd schedule that special session just for her...

 And it doesn't seem possible that the time for junior high is here?
But I know this beautiful, smart, funny girl will shine brightly in her new school.
I'm excited to watch her bloom.
