Scottsdale Newborn Photographer | Baby Hamza

A sweet little boy with a full head of hair graced my Scottsdale studio a few weeks ago. Baby Hamza  was the perfect little man and didn’t make a peep throughout his whole session. Mom had chose a simple color palette of dark blues and browns for his newborn session with me. Mom brought a darling little bonnet and bear stuffy and also a adorable little woodsy crown for him that we were able to play with! I love being able to make different set ups for each newborn session so the “King of the Jungle” set up turned out awesome! Since this was their first baby it was so important for me to make this session memorable for them. I so look forward to seeing this baby again for future sessions!

Scottsdale Maternity Photography | Christian & Julianne

Desert maternity sessions are always something I love to photograph! Christian and Julianne are the sweetest couple and are getting ready to welcome their baby girl Nora into the world. We had a long stretch of overcast, rainy and cloudy days here in Phoenix, which can put a damper on any outside photo shoot. Julianne and Christian were such troopers working around the weather to shoot their maternity session early since rain was in the forecast. Of course I will always vote for a pretty sunny day with gorgeous sun flares for a maternity session but overcast can really work in your favor at times. Overcast weather can act like a giant softbox and allow you to shoot in any direction which is a plus for a open sky desert location.

Julianne came prepared with 2 stunning maternity gowns and a beautiful floral babies breathe crown she made herself!! Her red hair and maroon gown from Embie Baby blew me away and went perfectly with the rocks and colors of the desert. They also brought a darling little princess gown to use when their princess Nora is born and I can’t wait to meet her!

Downtown Phoenix Family Photography | Stein Family

It’s been a while since I have photographed a session in downtown Phoenix, so it was great to get down there with one of my favorite families! I have been lucky enough to work with the Stein family since Hayden was in mom Liane’s belly and now she is turning the big 3! We have done so many different looks and locations for their photos in the past, so it was great to do something new and different. Family photography for me is so fun and exciting because you really get to interact with the family and see all their different personalities. Hayden has always had a little spunk to her and now that she is growing and getting bigger you can see it more and more. They hope to be expanding their family so hopefully when I blog their sessions again its with another baby!

Baby Photography Phoenix  | Baby Boy Jack

I love it when families come back to me when their family grows again. This family contacted me before little baby Jack was born to let me know they were expecting again. I got to photograph the future big brother Landon just 18 months ago so it was a treat knowing they were going to be having their second boy!! Baby Jack had a tough couple weeks in and out of hospitals so doing his newborn session in my Phoenix studio was very special to his family. Jack was a very plump little boy just like his brother was. Chunky and round babies are the cutest ever and I love being able to capture this sweet moments for this family again.


Baby Jack’s daddy is a huge Packer fan so it was sweet to incorporate that into his session like we did for this brother!

Phoenix Baby Photography | Sweet Baby Wynn


It was great to have another sweet baby girl in the studio!! This little princess was baby Wynn. She is the daughter of Tyler and Jessica who own the local hair salon in Scottsdale Loyal T Salon. They are amazing at what they do. I know first hand cause they do my hair on regular basis! If anyone reading this is looking for some amazing hair colorist or stylist they are your go too! I was so excited when Jessica announced she was pregnant, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on their sweet baby girl to photograph. Wynn was just a cutie, she did great for her newborn session and even gave us a brief awake moment and I was able to capture her beautiful little eyes. Little Wynn’s nursery is filled with elephants so it was fun to incorporate a little elephant stuffy from Snippets Props into her session. Her initials also spell out WOW so her parents brought some big letters to use for a fun photo which turned out so cute!

I loved being able to photograph this precious little girl in my Phoenix studio and can’t wait to see her grow!
