Something about shooting a new family that gets me all giddy inside. Maybe its nerves cause I want to make a good impression, make sure they have a fun session and feel like I am a professional and am worth their hard earned time and money. I also am giddy cause I hope it becomes a lasting relationship to  where they love their images and keep coming back each year. It was my first sessin with the Leyba family and they were so sweet and kind with 3 adorable kiddos!! I swear each one of them left with some sort of bump or bruise from playing around too hard but if at the end of the day they all had fun then thats what matters to me!! We met at one of my favorite locations in Scottsdale and their outfits and styling couldn’t have been more perfect!!

Baby Fernanda came into the world just shy of 6lbs. She was so tiny and perfect! I loved all the colors that mom requested they looked so good on her! We got so many poses and set ups with her it was so fun. We even got to throw in a little holiday set for them as well!!

Not going to lie I was pretty nervous to shoot the Brown family. Travis Brown is the lead campus pastor at my church CCV Scottsdale. I was nervous not just because he has a big family with lots of beautiful children but just nervous enough that I wanted to be able to photograph them in the way that I see them, a loving, strong and joyful family that loves to have fun!! Travis and Cory are rock stars for raising these 5 kids to be respectful, kind and outgoing amazing kids!! We had so much fun with their photos, I felt like just part of the family!! I loved that their only request was “Watch Me Whip & Nae Nae” at the end of our session with all the kids! They are def some of my favorites!!

It was a beautiful night in the desert for the Egli family! Sherry is the mastermind behind the majority of my cake smash cakes! She is soo talented and really goes above and beyond!! I rarely ever get to shoot in the desert so when Sherry mentioned she wanting a desert shoot I jumped all over it!! Its also a breathe of fresh air to photograph a family of older kids. I don’t have to jump around like a mad women or make silly noises to get their attention. They have such adorbale, good looking talented kids I always look forward to my session with them!!!

One of the funnest families ever. Hands down. The Dickison & Holemon family met me in the early morning for their family shoot. Although they are all cuddled up in fall clothes it didnt quite feel like fall the morning of their session. If I’m not mistaken it was probably around 75/80 degrees!! With a large family like this there are so many different combinations of shots to do sometimes its hard to keep track of what all you have or haven’t done. They are so laid back and fun I am pretty sure I spent most of the morning laughing at their shananigans!



Andrew and Jessica have the most adroable little girls! Emma & Abby are so alike but so different. Of course Emma is right at the age where as many bribes are needed to make any shot work!



Ron & Julie are two amazing parents! They have brought up 5 outstanding childern all with keeping Christ at the center and keeping their marriage stronger than ever!!
