Scottsdale Newborn Photographer – Baby Boy Braxton


So many little sweet babies have come into my Scottsdale studio! I saw time and time again how lucky I am to work with these sweet babies and such wonderful clients! Baby Braxton was just the sweetest little guy and was the baby of a mama who teaches dance at my daughter’s dance studio. He had a beautiful head of dark hair and barely made a peep during his whole session. Mom requested grays and blues for his session which is a very popular combo for boys! So many options its always fun to think of different ways to style sessions when your given a popular color palette. I love being able to make every session unique for each session so not all of my photos look the same. Making it a one of kind experience for all of my clients is always something I strive to do. 🙂

Phoenix Maternity Photography | Daisy Salt River Maternity


With the summer heat, I haven’t been posting a ton of outdoor shoots cause frankly its so dang hot! I had a gorgeous mama that wanted to brave the heat with me but also document her adorable belly!! She is expecting a cute little baby boy in the next few weeks and I am super eager to meet him! When expecting mom’s reach out to me for maternity sessions, I usually like to book them around 31-15 weeks. This way when it is time for their photoshoot they have a nice cute round belly but don’t feel so miserable yet. Showing off the belly is the focal point for any maternity session so sometimes it’s better to wait a little longer depending on your size and frame.

Since we are still in the summer months, I thought it would be fitting to do a shoot around water so that way Daisy can get the best of both worlds and still cool off a little. As a Phoenix maternity photographer, I shoot all around the valley but always will take input on what the look and feel of the shoot the client wants.

I am so glad Daisy loves her maternity session and know she is going to love the newborn session when her little man arrives even more!

Phoenix Baby Photographer | Mila 6 months old


Sweet Baby Mila was in the studio recently for her 6 months “sitter” session! She had some of the biggest baby blues with the sweetest little expressions! Sitter ages are some of my most favorite to photograph since sitting up is such a huge milestone. They are discovering so many little things all while sitting and sometime soon, crawling. I usually photograph sitter sessions anywhere between 6-8 months depending on the child development.

I adored baby Mila and all her darling little outfits and set ups we had planned for her session. She did not disappoint and gave me lots of cute little looks and showed her personality! My studio is north Phoenix is set up to photograph and capture all babies from newborn to 1 year old. If you are wanting to book a milestone or sitter session with me I would love to hear from you! But for now admire adorable little Mila’s 6 month session!!

Scottsdale Newborn Photography | 7 day Old Olivia

It was so great to see this family again. I saw them a little over 7 months ago when mom Patricia first found out she was pregnant with baby #2. One of the biggest compliments I can get is when clients return to me for their families milestones! Baby Olivia arrived a few weeks early but was perfectly healthy! She was a bit feisty the first part of her session and didn’t want to sleep, but we did get some adorable shots with her eyes open.

When clients come in for their newborn session, I have everything set out and planned according to their questionnaire they fill out prior to their session. Olivia’s mom requested colors of black and white with soft pinks to go with her nursery. I love all the looks that we did for her session and even used some of my favorite vendors like Luneberry, Props By Posies and Dearest Dreams.

 I am always booking newborn sessions a month or two out, so if you are expecting there is no “too soon” time to book a newborn session for your precious baby!

Phoenix Cake Smash Photographer | London’s Watermelon Cake Smash


Being a cake smash photographer I see lots of themes and decor that parents what to incorporate into their kiddos sessions. London was the happiest little girl who had tons of spunk and personality. When her mom told me she wanted a Watermelon theme cake smash, I was beyond excited! It was a theme I had not done before and loved the colors and the design of it! She wore a adorable watermelon romper from Bailey’s Blossoms for the first half of her session. Once it was time for some cake, London dove right in! She loved the cake topper and didn’t waste any time smashing. We also added some fun with some real cut up watermelon to add to the shoot. Her whole face was either covered in cake icing or watermelon juice.

It was one of the funnest and entertaining cake smashes and London was the perfect girl for it! I usually book cake smash sessions 2-3 weeks before babies actual birthdays so if you are looking for a fun theme and decor for your little ones first birthday, book me today!
