Nothing says beauty like a gorgeous mama in a green field with a maternity gown and a perfect round belly!! My dear friend Megan is getting ready to welcome her 3rd baby into the world in just a few weeks!! This will make boy #2 for her and their family! This baby came as a surprise but I know she couldn’t be more excited! Although this location couldn’t look more perfect, the whole time we were shooting we were being eaten alive with mosquitos! That’s one thing about Arizona is with the green come the bugs! We have had lots of rain in the past few weeks which has made these lush green washes come to life but the bugs are something that totally make these spots hard!

Megan braved all the bugs and in between swatting them away from our faces, we made some gorgeous photos happen! She totally rocked these plum and eggplant gowns from Jazzy Vintage Couture! You would never guess that just in a few short weeks, her new little man Cullen will be here! I am so excited to meet him and snuggle him!

Turning 1 year old is one of my favorite ages to capture!!! Even though they’re all over the place it seems, they’re learning and discovering new things everyday. Discovering the taste of cake is probably the best part of this age! I have been luck enough to photograph Emmett for his newborn,  6 months and now 1 year!! It’s been a joy watching this handsome little guy grow up in front of my camera!!

His 1st birthday was Space and Planets theme, so we had a great time setting up this cake smash for him! Emmett’s mom found this adorable rocket and space bow tie so we planned the cake smash around that. Blues, yellows, and oranges were the pops of colors we chose with of course some stars and planets! Cakelicious AZ knocked it out of the park with her rocket smash cake! Even though Emmett decided the cake looked better smashed on the ground, it was perfect for our theme!! It took some convincing for Emmett to get into his cake, but he looked adorable doing it!!

Baby London was such a gorgeous and sweet little girl! Miss London came in for my first ever Newborn Mini session. I have debated for a while when and if I was going to offer these, but since my photography studio is officially underway I thought this would be a perfect time!! London’s mommy requested purples for her newborn session and I couldn’t have been more excited! These bright bold colors looked perfect against her dark hair and perfect complexion! Purple is truly her color!

We also incorporated some fresh purple flowers into her session and mom loved it!! London had a nice little awake period so we were able to get some adorable awake shots before she “christened” it and had to change her haha.

I truly cherish being able to capture these beautiful babies and thats why I am thrilled to offer these Newborn Minis cause everyone should be able to capture these priceless moments!

The season has begun! Family session season is here and I am so excited to see all the gorgeous families this year! The Domocos family was just one of those feel good families that were so easy going and extremely laid back to work with. They were celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary so wanted to document it with a special session with me. We met a at beautiful ranch in Glendale and even though it was a little toasty out, they braved through it and we got some great images of their whole family! It was such a joy to meet them and honored to had been able to capture these special moments for them!

Another gorgeous baby girl just turned 3 months old!! I have been getting lots of 3 month olds lately and I have been loving it! Just like with Sophia’s, I adore all their new expressions!! Baby Addyson is a daughter of another fellow photographer in here Phoenix. It’s always fun to play around and photograph a photographer’s baby! Addyson was so chill and easy! Although she didn’t give me many smiles she did make lots of adorable faces!!

No matter what the milestone, I love being able to photograph babies at any age! They grow up soo fast you don’t want to miss a single moment 🙂
