Saguaro Lake Ranch Maternity | Lauren & Jake Maternity

It isn’t took often I get a couple that just blows me away in every sense. Lauren and Jake are some pretty amazing people and I am beyond lucky I got to work with them!! Lauren is a stunning first time mamma who is a sister of a good friend of mine. She is glowing from head to toe and looks oh so stunning as a expecting mama!! With the best team RiStyle Consulting whose mother made a custom white maternity gown, and them on site to make sure everything was perfect was a understatement. The dress was flawless and they made sure Lauren was too!! The dress was made for Lauren so it fit her to a tea and I couldn’t have imagined it more beautiful!  Camelback Flower Shop also made the prettiest floral crown for Lauren to match the dress and it was stunning!

With Lauren’s request we ventured back to Saguaro Lake Ranch for some jaw dropping views and gorgeous desert scenery. With Lauren and Jake moving back to Chicago were Jake plays baseball for the White Sox, they wanted something special to remember their home and to incorporate into their little boys nursery. This location couldn’t have been more perfect for them!! They were such troopers taking a little hike to get close to the mountain and it didn’t disappoint!! These two were just in their little world and were so cute with each other. The sunset was also killer so it made for the perfect backdrop!!

I am a little sad I wont get to do their baby boy Walker’s photos once he is here but I know I will get to photograph them again soon!!

Phoenix Baby Photographer | Emmett 6 months

 6 months sessions are always so fun to capture! One minute they are small little babies, then they are rolling over, and before you know it they are sitting up. I love being able to document all of the milestones so the family has a beautiful memory of the moment. Little Emmett was just the best little baby! He was filled with sweet expressions, smiles, and even stuck his tongue out at me a few times! He just started sitting up unsupported so loved sitting in different bowls and chairs for me!

Scottsdale Maternity Photography | Salt River Maternity Session

It’s been few week over here and I keep thinking I need to take more time to blog but it sadly gets the back burner. I have had so many sessions from maternity, newborn, 6 months and 1 yr it’s hard to share them all. I realized I needed to share more maternity on my blog and this session was perfect! This beautiful family had just moved here from New Mexico and wasn’t too familiar with AZ and its locations. I brought them to the beautiful setting at the Salt River for some gorgeous water and mountain shots!

Anika is welcoming her 2nd girl any day and their daughter is so excited to be a big sister! She looked so stunning, I wish I looked that good around 34 weeks! She is also a fashion/beauty blogger so makes sense as to why pregnancy looks so good on her! The weather was perfect as can be. We are welcoming the spring months here in Scottsdale so I am so ready for greenery and flowers but the desert and mountains will never get old!!

Phoenix Newborn Photography | Sweet Baby Ella

It’s not everyday I have a newborn come in with a crazy amount of hair! A full head of hair is seen here and there but Ella’s hair was another story! She was just the sweetest and barley made a peep during her session! Her dark black hair hair just popped against all the soft colors we used during her session! Her parents loved the soft mauve, pink and cream tones for her session since thats what they have in her nursery. They are such a sweet and loving family and just love this little girl to pieces. We used outfits and headbands from many of my favorite vendors like No. 2 Willow Lane, Dearest Dreams and Photo Muffins. I am so blessed to have these amazing vendors at my fingertips to create such beautiful pieces to adorn on this little babies!

Scottsdale Family Photography | Bills Family

It’s not very often I get a family come from out of state just to do a session with me!! Well they actually came for the Christmas holiday season and to visit family. But still they wanted to take advantage of their time here and schedule a family session! The Bills family currently live in Georgia so I was so happy to give them a Georgia-like setting for their family session! Their daughter Blake was so beyond adorable and gave me so many happy smiles and laughs! The weather was perfect and so was this family! Being a Scottsdale family photographer, I am trying to make it my goal this year to shoot in new and fun locations to give my clients a little more variety! Arizona has a funny way of giving us “fall” in December and January but we will take it! The yellow and gold leaves and flowing river was the most picturesque location for this amazing family! I hope they come visit and see me again soon!
