Today my little guy that I scheduled this morning for a Valentine’s mini session, had to reschedule because he was sick (Feel better Ezra!) I was so anxious to get some shots of this adorable setup, I had to do a little session with my daughter Jemma, to test it out. (Special thanks to my Dad for helping me put this adorable kissing booth together! Love you Dad!)

Jemma is always such a character. You never know what you’re gonna get with this little firecracker! She was all smiles and sass today for her sesh. I allow for a thirty minute time frame to snag those 5 images I promise, but I can be done in 5 minutes (which was the case with Miss Jemma) or it may take the full 30 minutes. Since she’s my daughter, she is comfortable with me and gave me smiles without a lot of coaxing. Other children come to me and if they don’t know me, they may take some time to open up and show their personality and become comfortable with me.

Give me a chirp if you want to schedule you Valentine’s Mini Session! 30 minutes, 5 images PLUS a Facebook timeline photo! All for $75! As with all my mini sessions, I will have all of your images to you within 24 hours of your shoot. Happy Valentine’s Day my little birdies! XOXO

Yesterday morning I was up to see the sunrise with this beautiful family! Even though there was a few people not feeling well and it was a super chilly morning, I got some great shots capturing this family. It’s been a few years since I’ve been to the Scottsdale Civic Center. The landscaping there is so timeless. It always looks so beautiful and lush no matter what time of year you visit. We are so lucky to live in Arizona, where we can take outdoor photos year round!!! Special shout out to Matt for carrying around my camera bag all morning! Thanks for a fun morning guys <3



Here’s a little sneak peek of this cutie patootie I got to hang out with yesterday morning. He celebrated his 1st birthday in December and we marked this momentous occasion with an epic cake smash! This little guy was so friendly and gave me lots of hugs and even let me hold him. He wasn’t too thrilled with me taking his picture though, until we brought out the cake. As you can see, he was very into that part!:) By the end, he had cake in his toes and hair. I think it was a successful cake smash! Happy Birthday Colten!

Happy 1st Birthday Colten!


I think it is very fitting that my first post be about someone very close to my heart. I got the honor of taking some lifestyle maternity photos of my sister, Kayti, last week. After being in the Navy for eight years and living in many different cities and sent on multiple deployments including one tour in Iraq, she finally got to come back home to us in 2014, after marrying her husband, Sean. They were both honorably discharged from the Navy and they moved back to Arizona. It is so wonderful to have them close to us now. Kayti has always been such an amazing Aunt to my kiddos. I am so excited to see her as a mother to her own little one now. Baby Elijah is estimated to arrive on February 2nd. We are all anxiously awaiting his arrival. His Harry Potter nursery is complete, his clothes are in his drawers, the carseat is installed in the car, and mommy’s bag is packed. We’re all ready for your big debut Eli! Can’t wait to meet you <3
