The Summers Family | Glendale Family Photography

Its been nuts around here with all these amazing families I get to photograph this season!! I wish I had enough time to blog them all cause they are all so great!! I loved so much of the shots from the Summer’s family session I couldn’t resist getting them up here!! If you remember Matt & Ally they have graced my site twice!! Once for their maternity session and again for Colton’s hospital & newborn session! So I since they have made so many appearances on here I had to add this session too! Colton is 6 months now and getting chunkier and cuter by the day! I can’t believe how much he looks just like his daddy! He is such a little flirt and gave me some adorable smiles!!

We met up at one of my favorite locations in Glendale then did a second location at some gorgeous cotton fields!! We don’t ever get any snow here in Phoenix so I love how much these cotton field resemble snow and a wintery look!!

Round Two | Family Mini Sessions | Phoenix Family Photography

Round Two of my fall mini sessions were just as entertaining and fun as the day before!! I got to meet another set of 3 families who all brought something different to the table!! First up was  Hammonds /Spoljarick family! Kevin and Trisha are engaged and will soon have a new amazing blended family!! There kids love each other so much its awesome to see this family already molding in front of my camera!

Next on the list was the McNeil family! If you can’t tell from their wardrobe they are huge Denver Broncos fans!! I was actually amazed when they scheduled their session with me on a Sunday night while football was on!!! All 3 of their kids are fun,  outgoing and made the session easy! Can’t wait to work with them again!!

The Abril family was my last one of the mini sessions!! They are no stranger to my camera, they have been doing family photos with me for a couple years so it was so cool to see the girls Mia and Eva growing up so fast!! The girls are now the perfect smilers, and so fun to work with! Another perk of being last was we got their last shot of the day with a killer AZ sunset! Can’t beat that!  I always love given my families images they are going to cherish and love forever!!

Round One | Family Mini Sessions | Phoenix Family Photographer

This years Fall Mini Sessions sold like hot cakes!! The minute I announced it on my FB page, they will pretty much full!! I was so excited to meet new and reunite with all these families!! The first day of mini sessions went amazing!! We meet up at one of my favorite locations in downtown Phoenix and couldn’t have had more perfect weather!!!

First up for the mini sessions was the Keever Family!!! They were newbie’s to being in front of my camera but they were super nice, down to earth family who planted roots here in AZ after living in North Carolina so a long time!! It was so great getting to know them and I hope I get to see them all again soon!!

Next up was the Damante Family!! I first met them at our home church CCV Scottsdale as Christen was bringing her daughter Braylie into the toddler room with my daughter Aubrey. We talked about doing photos for a long time so it was great finally seeing them again since they have now moved to the East Valley campus where Tom is a neighborhood pastor!

The last session of the first day of mini sessions was the Harvey family!! The last time they were in front of my camera was a couple years ago when Matt and Shanna got married! Their wedding day was such a beautiful day and so was their mini session!

Baby Cruz | Phoenix Infant Newborn Photography

Baby Cruz is such a little angel baby!! He is truly a little blessing to his mommy and daddy. If you remember I blogged Kyle & Christy maternity session not to long ago. They are such a sweet and genuine couple. I was so excited for them to welcome their little boy into the world! He was such a great little guy for his newborn session! Although we did have a few “accidents” on mommy we even caught on camera ( see bottom of post ) . I loved snuggling with this sweet boy I can’t wait to see him again!!

I wish I could say this was the only accident from Cruz that day! He loved going potty on mommy  :p

The Lee Family Maternity | Sedona Maternity Photography

Words can’t say how much joy I feel for my brother & sister in law Garrett & Connie. They are expecting their second child, first little boy Colton Parker Lee next month!! Although we love our girls, it will be nice to finally have a little boy in the family!! Garrett & Connie are the most loving and hard working parents to little Haiden and I can’t wait to see how great of a big sister she will be!! Of course I always have to make a big spectacle for my family so when I found out she was pregnant I planned the whole time to do her maternity session up north in Sedona! It is soo gorgeous up their it is only fitting to have their photos there!

We were a little worried about the weather because it was telling us all week that is was going to be raining and we were planning for the worst. The chance of rain was only 40% so we took the risk and headed up north!! As we were driving it was telling us it was raining with thunderstorms on our iPhones but I didn’t see any dark clouds as we got closer. We finally got there and it wasn’t raining at all! We got soo lucky the sky was clear and it was a beautiful day! The timing couldn’t have been more perfect cause literally right when we finished up with our shoot we got in the car and went to go find somewhere to eat. After not even 5 minutes in the car it started to pour rain!! We literally started and finished at the most perfect time!! It continued to rain most of the evening until we started to drive home!

Needless to say the day was perfect! Perfect little family, perfect location and perfect weather! Even little Haiden was in her best goofy little mood and it made for very cute photos!! I just have soo many shots that I loved from their shoot I don’t know how Connie is going to pick some to frame cause they are all amazing!!
