Phoenix Baby Photographer | Kaila 6 months


Kaila came to see me again for her 6 months session! Last time I saw her was at her 3 months session and she has grown so much! Her mom envisioned a little milk bath session with florals for her sitter session. I had just got this new darling baby claw foot tub and knew it would be perfect for her. We added some florals to it and it was perfect for her. The only problem was Kaila wanted to keep eating the flowers! We literally couldn’t get her to stop sucking on the stems lol! It was beyond cute and made for a cute memory her mom will always remember!

Mom brought a beautiful floral crown from Baileys Blossoms and it looks so sweet on her! We added the bubbles as a fun touch to the milk bath and Kaila loved those too. Adding a milk bath session to any 6 months or 1 year session is so wonderful to do and is perfect for those little girls!

Cinderella Theme Cake Smash | Makenna 1 year old

Sweet Makenna just turned 1 year old! It’s amazing how fast time flies! If you remember Makenna’s newborn session, you can check it out here. This sweet little girl is my neighbor’s daughter, so I have been lucky enough to watch her grow up close to me. When her mom told me she wanted to do a Cinderella Theme Cake Smash I was beyond excited! Cinderella is one of my favorite Disney movies of all time!! We had so much fun with all the decorations and outfits. Makenna definetly looks good in blues!

We did some adorable shots in the new refinished rocking horse I had made then got into her cake. She was a little apprehensive as first and needed some encouragement but she did eventually start to play with it. After she made a decent dent into her cake we brought out the bath tub for some super cute bath up photos with Mr. Squeak and some bubbles!

Photographing cake smashes are probably my favorite along with newborn sessions. If you are in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area and looking to book a cake smash session, I am now taking bookings for 2018 so its never too soon to book your child’s 1 year session!

Scottsdale Maternity Photographer | Emma Desert Maternity


It’s been a while since I blogged! You can tell when I don’t get to blog very often that I have been super slammed with sessions. My desert maternity session in Scottsdale with Emma was quite amazing! She was as beautiful as ever and was perfect for the desert. She is expecting in the next few weeks and can’t wait to meet their baby girl. I usually photography maternity sessions between 31-35 weeks to make sure mamas have a nice round pretty belly but not too far where you start to feel swollen and uncomfortable.

This location in north Scottsdale was new for me but LOVED the large boulders and the whole feel of the raw desert. You will for sure see more sessions here in the future. If you want to keep up to date on all my sessions make sure to follow me on Instagram for sneak peeks and behind the scenes stories!

Scottsdale Newborn Photographer – Baby Boy Braxton


So many little sweet babies have come into my Scottsdale studio! I saw time and time again how lucky I am to work with these sweet babies and such wonderful clients! Baby Braxton was just the sweetest little guy and was the baby of a mama who teaches dance at my daughter’s dance studio. He had a beautiful head of dark hair and barely made a peep during his whole session. Mom requested grays and blues for his session which is a very popular combo for boys! So many options its always fun to think of different ways to style sessions when your given a popular color palette. I love being able to make every session unique for each session so not all of my photos look the same. Making it a one of kind experience for all of my clients is always something I strive to do. 🙂

Phoenix Maternity Photography | Daisy Salt River Maternity


With the summer heat, I haven’t been posting a ton of outdoor shoots cause frankly its so dang hot! I had a gorgeous mama that wanted to brave the heat with me but also document her adorable belly!! She is expecting a cute little baby boy in the next few weeks and I am super eager to meet him! When expecting mom’s reach out to me for maternity sessions, I usually like to book them around 31-15 weeks. This way when it is time for their photoshoot they have a nice cute round belly but don’t feel so miserable yet. Showing off the belly is the focal point for any maternity session so sometimes it’s better to wait a little longer depending on your size and frame.

Since we are still in the summer months, I thought it would be fitting to do a shoot around water so that way Daisy can get the best of both worlds and still cool off a little. As a Phoenix maternity photographer, I shoot all around the valley but always will take input on what the look and feel of the shoot the client wants.

I am so glad Daisy loves her maternity session and know she is going to love the newborn session when her little man arrives even more!
