Scottsdale Cake Smash | Camden’s Cowboy Western Cake Smash


Ever since I started photographing cake smashes, I have always had a “bucket list” of themes I have wanted to photograph for cake smashes! A Western/Cowboy theme was always the top of my list, since I am a AZ Native and all. When Camden’s mommy told me they were thinking about doing that for his party I was so excited! His mom has always grown up riding horses so it fit perfectly with their family. I photographed Camden for his 6 months session, so I was so happy to see him again. He brought his killer smile and charm and loved the camera. He was just the happiest little boy and LOVED his cake. I really loved how the cake smash set turned out and so did his mom! We even had time for a little bubble bath afterward and Camden just loved those bubbles!!

Scottsdale Newborn Photographer | Baby Booker

If you have been following me for a long time you know that I’ve been busy with lots of sessions! From newborns, maternity, 1 yr olds, you name it! It’s soo hard for me to blog every session especially since there are so many I would love to share but can’t. If your not already, make sure to follow my Instagram page! Thats is where I do the most of my sharing of my sessions. From day-to-day things, behind the scenes and all these gorgeous babies!

Baby Booker was the best little boy. I don’t often get baby fever but he was pushing all the right buttons! He snuggled so easily into every pose and just was so fun to work with! He even had a short awake period and gave us the best expressions!! It was important to mom and dad to capture Booker with some of there UCF memorabilia so even though Booker made us work for it at the end, we got it and know mom and dad are going to just love it!!

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!!
