Marky G // Phoenix Senior Portraits

Marky G - what a great kid. This guy was up for anything as we hopped around Tempe on a particularly cold, quiet morning.  Marky has such a calm, quiet presence about him while being super kind at the same time. This made for such a lovely session. He's sweet as can be and we had fun hanging around the campus of ASU and the ultra-cool Graduate Hotel.  Thanks for being so awesome, Marky! 

Project 365 // January // Phoenix Family Lifestyle Photography

Once again I've decided to do a photo a day for the entire year. I'll be documenting my personal life for this project - mostly family related moments. I do this for my family, for my daughter, for myself - to remember the little, everyday fleeting moments that are so important to me. I want to look back at these images recalling my daughter's little toes or my husband's amazing laugh. I will be posting here once a month with our daily images. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Elli // Phoenix, AZ Senior Portraits

Elli and I spent some time enjoying the sunset on South Mountain recently. I just love her laid-back, effortless beauty. She's an extraordinary girl with extraordinary things happening in her life. I'm so glad I got the chance to photograph her before she flies away across the seas to teach. Here's wishing you a magical time away, Elli! xo

Awaiting Baby Finley // Salt River Maternity

This beautiful family recently grew by one - one perfect, little girl. I'll be blogging those Fresh 48 and newborn sessions soon! But let's start a few weeks before her entrance to the world with their dreamy Salt River family maternity session...

Angela's Bridal Shower // MonOrchid Downtown Phoenix

There was laughter. There was lace. There were tiny teacups and magic and glitter. It was a beautiful, intimate bridal shower for a lovely bride-to-be. Held at the MonOrchid gallery space, Angela's family and friends celebrated in style with lots of love and a few very pretty cocktails. 

Kim + Devin // Boyce Thompson Arboretum Engagement

Where to begin with this mega-gorgeous duo? I was stoked to photograph these two with Boyce Thompson Arboretum as our stunning backdrop. It fit so beautifully with their classic, clean attire. Kim chose a stunning tulle Anthropologie skirt and Devin looked sharp in his bowtie and suspenders. Come on, who doesn't love that combo?! Every gorgeous detail was given lots of thought. The morning light was super dreamy. Her tulle skirt and that low morning light were a match made in heaven. We wanted a simple vibe for the day; a focus on the beauty of the location and their rad love for one another.  They brought their adorable kiddos along because family is everything and we can't document their love without them. I could have spent all day with this family. We had fun. We laughed, danced to Macklemore, and enjoyed the beautiful morning. 

Victoria + Jesse // Flagstaff Wedding

When I first met with Victoria and Jesse for coffee over a year ago, I knew instantly that we all could create some magic together...and I don't think I was wrong! They are so kind, down to earth, and so in love. Their Flagstaff wedding was a true reflection of the two of them - full of love and oh so sweet. The ceremony was held at the lovely Nordic Center. The reception was like time traveling back to the coolest party ever at the beautiful, historic Hotel Weatherford. Here's to a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughs. Cheers to you both!

happy october!

We love dressing up around here, so we are very excited that it's October! Bring on the caramel apples, pumpkin pie, scary movies, and costumes. Can it be Halloween everyday?
