Here’s another gorgeous senior!! Taylor is another sweet soul inside and out. That smile is just so adorable.
Tempe Center of Arts and Gia equal a sweet combination of class and beauty! I have photographed Gia and her whole family before and let me tell you I can photograph all of them all day long. She is a natural! Another successful shoot and I am thrilled to share! Cheers to the class of 2018!
Every love story is beautiful and this wedding is no exception. Sandra and German exchanged vows in a backyard in Gilbert, AZ. This lovely backyard wedding was no short of amazing. Especially the way German looked at Sandra. The love and adoration in his eyes was so sweet and sincere that I wish every girl could experience. Even though the weather said a chance of cloudy that I was hoping for, the sun shined bright on this couple. The heat was intense but not as intense as their love for eachother. I am so honored to capture pure, raw emotion on the most important day in the lives of the people. Thanks for trusting me to make these memories last forever. I cherish these moments and believe in true love stories and hope every girl finds her Prince Charming. xo
Unicorns remain objects of wonder and beauty, majesty and power. It’s no wonder unicorn mini sessions have gained popularity. Therefore, we had a few sessions with the help of Sunshine Acres Children’s Home whose mission is to provide a loving, wholesome, Christian home for children who are separated from their parents and help them establish long-term relationships with stable parental figures, preparing them for success in adult life. With every session, I donate a portion of the proceeds back to this amazing organization. I am so grateful to have found Krissy and her willingness to share Cracker Jax and Dallas. They make wonderful unicorns. Do you believe in unicorns? We sure do!
Something about Senior sessions are so much fun! Senior portraits are about celebrating a life stage - a milestone that is definitely one worth documenting and celebrating in many ways. Life will never be the same. They may leave home for college and the friends they grew up with. This is their last year of high school and their last year of truly being under their parents wings. With a future and new experiences to face, adulthood and independent decisions, they will never see the world the way they do right now. Senior portraits are essential to remembering who they are at this moment in time.
We woke up @5 am to catch the morning sunrise and at Veteran’s Oasis. We had a blast roaming around that morning finding the best lighting. I am so thrilled at all the beauty and talent I captured. Congrats Elicia and to the class of 2018!
Karissa and Alan are having a baby boy. Oh what a joy to bring a baby into this world and I got to capture all this cuteness. Karissa is a real life Disney Princess and this was the perfect way to document her maternity session. If you haven’t figured it out, it’s the movie “UP” I am all about themes so when she told me what she wanted I was all over it. Look at that baby belly bump. I know you can barely see it, but she was so adorable. This is their first baby and I am sure he will go to Disneyland more times in his first year than I will have been in my life. Congrats on your new adventure. It will be the best, most rewarding and important adventure of your life.
Meet Bokeh and Turner. Talk about killer names and I immediately fell in love. Bokeh is a photography term that is the quality of the portion of a photograph that is not in sharp focus. Adjusting depth-of-field, choosing the proper lens, creating custom bokeh, and using bokeh to relate with the foreground are techniques that you can use to achieve better bokeh. Too techy for you? Me too. Let’s talk about this Bokeh; isn’t he beautiful? And Turner? She is knock dead gorgeous! What a beautiful combination of sweet perfection. I cannot wait to photograph these beauties again.
It’s graduation season for the class of 2018 and that means that high school seniors are getting ready for their future by chasing dreams, finding passions and learning about the real world. I know it’s an emotional time for both teens and parents and graduation is a rite of passage for celebrating accomplishments and looking toward the future. Senior photo sessions are part of that celebration for capturing and remembering this significant time. Some say that High School is one the best times of their lives. I know it was for me, but back in the 80s and early 90s we didn’t do personal senior photos. We did of course have our yearbook photo taken, which is still framed and hung on my parent’s wall. All 3 of us kids are there happily hung on the wall.
This beauty’s mom contacted me for a Senior session. We strolled through the park capturing her sweet soul with a few outfit changes and a proud mama close by. Good luck to you Samantha. Be ready to be the person you’ve always wanted to be and what matters now is the work you put into your life. Take Care. xoxo
Matt and Carrie are engaged to be married and I had the honor of capturing all their love for this adorable engagement session. We woke up early to catch the sunrise and the weather was perfect. We walked around the oasis to take advantage of the various backdrops. The prickly pear is Carrie’s favorite. I love when my couples just go with the flow. Most of them tell me they don’t know how to pose or what to do. I prompt them a little bit and then catch them in a genuine moment. You really don’t need to know how to pose when you are being yourself. The best part of photography is when I capture those sincere moments in between all those Pinterest poses. Just look at how cute they are. Being in love is the best feeling ever!
