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!

This was my 3rd year photographing the Meyer family!! Each year Harper gets more and more spunky! She is such a fun entertainly little girl though. She does have her incredibly cute side too! I decided to shoot at a new location and LOVED it. I love all the modern lines and gray/rust tones. I am always nervouse to try new locations with new clients cause we are all kind of discovering it together for the first time. They were such troopers and just walked around with me while I was scoping it out! I loved shooting this family and love that they stick with me year after year! Thanks Meyer family!

Of course a session wouldn’t be complete without Harper showing me a couple of her dance moves 🙂

No one glows quite like a expecting mother. Rachael is no exception!! The Cerreta family is expecting their second baby girl in the next few weeks. She looks stunning from head to toe with a gorgeous gown from Sew Trendy Accessories and a soft floral crown. Her adorable daughter Harper was so sweet, she was all about touching mommies belly, snuggles & kisses with her mommy. Moments like these are my favorite cause its a special little moment with her since soon she will no longer be a only child. It was a bit overcast for my liking that evening for her session so we didn’t get any pretty sun flares I am always chasing after, but we did get some beautiful photos of her new growing family and her little belly!
