Phoenix Rainbow Cake Smash – Aaahirya 1 Year Old

Over the years I have photographed many cake smashes, all of which have been fun and unique! When Aaahirya’s mom told me she wanted to do a Rainbow Cake smash for her daughter, I was beyond excited! It was one theme I haven’t done and was thrilled to do. Not only did she just like rainbows, but Aaahirya was her little rainbow baby so it fit her perfectly.

She wasted no time getting into the cake, she even turned it upside down and played around with the plate! Something you always dream of for a cake smash but actually happened. Too this date this is one of my favorite all around cake smashes and loved the outcome of it!!

Scottsdale Family Photography | Daschievici Family

I have been a little slow to blog since I have been beyond swamped during this holiday season! So many great families I have been able to photograph it would take me forever to blog them all. This season I have had a lot of clients request desert locations for their family sessions. This has been a great change of pace for me as usually I get requests of greenery and lots of trees, which are hard to find in AZ.

This family has always been so fun to work with! They have the most adorable girls and so easy to photograph. They all looked so adorable as mom always does a amazing job with their outfits.I love how the desert rocks and boulders compliment this gorgeous family. I will try to blog more family sessions this season to show off all these wonderful families!

Donut First Birthday | Walker Donut Smash

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE a good cake smash. But donuts are LIFE!! Donuts are some of my favorite treats and when Walker’s mom told me she wanted to do a donut smash instead of cake for his 1st birthday I was all over it! Walker has always been the sweetest and expressive little guy and didn’t disappoint for his one year photoshoot. The donuts were made by the talented Amour de Sucre!

Walker really loved his photos and it showed when it was time to smash them! He loved eating them, stacking them then throwing them! He really made us proud from a smashing stand point and loved the whole look for his first birthday session! It is great to think out side the box and photograph a first birthday in another way other than cake!

Mini Newborn Photographer Phoenix | Baby Parker Mini Session

Several months ago I started seeing a trend in inquires. These were clients that were asking if I had any smaller packages for newborn photography. At the time I only had the 1 package as a full session and 30 digitals. As the more I thought about it I thought it would be a perfect idea to offer a smaller and simpler package for clients still wanting high quality images from a seasoned photographer.  As a new parent or a parent who is on baby #5, finding a newborn photographer is hard. Someone thats close, you relate with, has experience, you like their style and what they offer is all key things. I would hate to turn a client away that loved my work but wouldn’t compete with my price point. Offering Newborn Mini’s was now a no brainer.

A Newborn Mini Session is perfect for so many reasons, its a win-win for everyone. You are still able to capture all the newness of your precious baby, getting a experienced photographer, a good amount of images and its a quick session! The mini session is done wrapped only mainly because it helps the time of the session go quickly. The diaper is kept on and mom still arrives with baby tired and a full belly by feeding him/her upon arrival. There are 5-6 sets that are done with baby and the wraps are kept on but varied the entire time. There are so many different looks and feels you and still achieve with the baby wrapped and usually this keeps baby sound asleep and can knock out a newborn mini in 45min – 1 hour.

Baby Parker was no exception. He was sound asleep and I wrapped him in a tight swaddle and I didn’t see his eyes open once! We used different wraps, hats, furs and buckets for his session and even got festive with a little pumpkin set since he is a fall baby. Mom loved all the images and so did I! I am so happy to now be offering these packages and I think my clients are to!!

Newborn Photography Phoenix | Baby Wells



Baby Wells was the sweetest little boy!! The Holemon family finally got their baby boy after have 2 little girls. Sisters Emma and Abby are so smitten with their baby brother. Andrew Wellington (Wells) Jr. was so perfect for his newborn session in Phoenix. Mom wanted to corporate some blues and grays along with a few specific shots that are special to their family. This family are HUGE Alabama fans and have a photo of each one of their girls with this Alabama Roll Tide sign. The tiny football fit seamlessly into his little fingers! Pslam 139 : 14 is also a special verse just for Wells as mama has canvases hung in their home of all their children with a specific verse so it was amazing to recreate this image for them! Baby Wells is so loved in this family of 5 and so happy daddy finally got his boy!
