Shannon Lee Photography » Phoenix Area Maternity, Newborn, Child & Family Photographer

As long as I have been doing photography for a profession, its actually on a rare occasion I get to shoot in the desert. I love the desert. I love the colors, the warmth, the scenery and of course a desert sunset. I was so lucky to photograph such a gorgeous mama-to-be for her maternity session on a perfect evening in the desert. She was stunning and glowing and couldn’t have been more perfect for this shoot! Elizabeth and Scott were such troopers with the heat and even being asked to go knee deep in lake water for some amazing water shots. They are a beautiful couple inside and out and I can’t wait to meet their little boy Noah!!

All say it over and over again, one of my favorites things I love about being a photographer is getting to watch babies grow up and seeing them at all their milestones! Last time I saw Jayce was at his newborn shoot and he was one of the easist babies I have had in a along time! I remember doing his newborn shoot super preggo and being very thankful he was so easy!! Needless to say he is still the chillest baby ever with piercing blue eyes! He is 6 months already and beyond adorable!!

Some say being a sister is even better then being a princess, well in this case it is totally true! Sisters Sofia & Layla are some of the prettiest little girls (besides mine lol)!! This session was a long time coming for their momma who every time we tried to schedule a shoot something went wrong! Well we finally got to do a girls session and of course August in AZ it was hotter then heck and I know the girls were feeling it too! Despite some diva moments, I was able to get some adorbale shots of them and I am so happy mom was thrilled with them cause if anyone deserves precious photos of these girls its her!

Thanks to the Measure for the adorable dresses and romper for the girls!

I give it up to my families for dealing with the hot summer heat with me!! The Parenica family are always so sweet and it was great to catch up with them and to see baby Sydney for her 1 yr session! I did her newborn session and saw them last fall so it was wonderful to see how big Sydney is now! Sister Cam is so sweet with her it was so cute to watch her help baby sis with her cake smash!

It couldn’t have been more of a perfect summer evening for Lauren’s maternity session! Although the summer heat is still lingering, she looked stunning with her ivory and gold gown!! Little miss Stella loved exploring the location by the Salt River she would have rather played with the sticks and look at the water then want to take photos but we still got lots of adorable pics for mom! What’s even more amazing is that during a shoot we ran into a herd of wild horses (see bottom photo) they were so striking and beautiful I had to capture them! And of course since its summer and its sweltering, I had to make Lauren get in the river for a couple shots to show off her adorable belly!

I am so happy for the Hamby family, not too long after this shoot Laurn gave birth to handsome Emmett so I am glad we got to do her maternity session when we did!
