Brie Bella Desert Maternity Photography Part 2 | Saguaro Lake Ranch Maternity

 

I think I was still coming off the high from our studio maternity session with Brie by the time our outdoor shoot approached! Just like our studio shoot, so many talented artists came together to make this shoot possible. If anyone knows Brie, you know the love for the earth oozes out of her. I couldn’t have picked a more perfect setting for this session. Brie and Bryan were married in beautiful Sedona surrounded by the gorgeous red rocks, so it was only fitting we mimic that look and surround baby Birdie with killer mountain views as well in mommies tummy! Saguaro Lake Ranch was more than wonderful to work with when planning this shoot. Their property and ranch style setting was the perfect backdrop we needed for this look!

The WildFlower AZ and Dang Fine Rentals put together a beautiful and rustic boho setting for part of our maternity shoot. The rustic and earthy tones of the florals and furniture complimented Brie’s wardrobe and the location perfectly. My second hand Risa and her assistant Kelly with RiStyle Consulting were right by Brie’s side making sure her styling was on point and that she looked flawless (which isn’t hard at all). Every single piece was effortlessly hand picked by Risa to match Brie’s unique and feminine style for this shoot.

Brie looked so stunning and you can tell she was in her element. Today was a special day I wanted to blog her session cause today is baby Birdie’s due date. She has been staying very comfortable in mama’s belly so we are hoping baby Birdie is welcomed into the world very soon! Until then, here are some of my favorites of our desert maternity shoot!

Scottsdale Newborn Photography | Baby Alaina 

This baby girl could not have been more precious in my Scottsdale newborn studio! I loved that her photo session included bright spring colors of teals, corals and blues. The biggest perks of being a newborn photographer is being able to help families capture their newest addition. Baby Alaina fit right in to this beautiful family with two big brothers right by her side. The loved snuggling with their sister and capturing these priceless moments. Alaina was the sweetest little girl and loved all the images from her session. She didn’t even open her eyes once, so it allowed me to get a wide variety of shots for their family to cherish. If want a sneak peek into my studio experience at my Scottsdale/Phoenix studio for more information.

Scottsdale Outdoor Cake Smash Photography | Evelyn’s Outdoor 1 Year Cake Smash

Photographing 1 year sessions outdoor’s is one of my favorite sessions to photograph. They are always so full of wonder and curiosity! Sweet Evelyn looked beyond adorable in her eyelet white dress topped with her floral halo! The Wildflower AZ did a beautiful job on the custom floral halo with the mix of greenery, whites and purples that mom wanted. Mom brought a vintage rocking horse that she used to play on as a kid and wanted to document it with little Evie. She didn’t crack a ton of smiles for me but her sweet angelic look was good enough for me. When it came time to do the cake she wasn’t too interested. She thought the flowers that were on the cake were more tasty then the buttercream!! We were able to capture some adorable shots with her purple ombre cake from Lisa’s Sweets and Treats before she came to a screaming end (literally) All in all mom loved the images we were able to get from Evelyn turning 1 year old!

Phoenix Family Photography | Summers Family Beach Session

Getting to photograph a beautiful family on the beach has always been a dream of mine! Of course living in Arizona it’s not something you get to do every day or have access to. I had a family vacation planned to San Diego and knew my friend Ally who just moved to Cali always wanted a family beach session. I threw the idea at her about the session and of course she jumped all over it!! They were the perfect family for this type of family session. They are so easy going, fun and of course beautiful!! The weather couldn’t have been more perfect!! The beach and the rocks made the perfect backdrop with their neutral color outfits!! Ally looked stunning in her white lace and tulle dress and the boys looked handsome as well. The whole shoot was so fun and playful I can’t wait to get back to the beach in May when I am in Newport for a maternity & newborn conference so stay tuned for more beach photos!!

Brie Bella Studio Maternity Session : Part 1 | Phoenix Maternity Photography

I am still pinching myself that this shoot with Brie Bella even took place. I first got in touch with Brie through a mutual friend and was stoked to be given the chance to have maternity session with me!! After chatting with Brie several times, I knew she would be super easy going and laid back to work with! She is so sweet and genuine and made this whole process so easy and effortless. Bryan and Brie are going to be such wonderful parents to baby Birdie, they both have such loving personalities they are going to love her to the end of the earth!

I knew I couldn’t go through this shoot alone and needed a excellent team to help me pull off my vision. I brought on the incredible Risa with RiStyle Consulting to help with the styling. Boy oh boy does this girl go above and beyond to please!! Every detail of Brie’s wardrobe was hand picked and perfected to a tea. Some amazing designers donated some stunning pieces that fit Brie and her personality perfectly! This shoot was a perfect mix of organic boho with a touch of soft girlie intimate pieces.

When it came to florals I knew I wanted something whimsical, light, airy and romantic! The Wildflower AZ blew my mind with their eye popping florals!! The blush and ivory tones mixed with the greenery couldn’t have looked more amazing with all of Brie’s looks for this shoot. The Blok Studio made for a perfect location for this studio maternity shoot. The clean and crisp white walls with the yummy natural light is everything I hoped for and more! Everything was so well executed, I keep thinking if there was something I would have done differently or perfected on and I just fall short. I can’t thank all of the people involved in this shoot enough.  There are so many vendors and people to give credit to so please scroll to the bottom for all their credits as they all deserve to share the spotlight with me!!!

All of our studio maternity shoot was filmed for Brie’s show Total Bellas on E! so make sure to tuned in Aug to see all the behind the scenes!!
