That Dress!

Date: 04/15/2019, Author: DK Brittain, Category: Photography

I met this beauty's mom Danyelle a few years ago when she contacted me about senior photos for her oldest daughter, Madison and it was an instant bond! Our visions and her planning was an incredible combination. We executed a perfect session. Not once, but twice. Here is the second senior session. Meet Grace! Look at that face! Look at that dress. This took place at the San Tan Mountains and I am still in awe! To see the a few more from the session, click here

On a Mission

Date: 03/12/2019, Author: DK Brittain, Category: Photography

Holly is on a Mission, an LDS Mission :) We had such a fun photo shoot before she heads off to change the world and speak the gospel. What an amazing calling to spread the gospel. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Gilbert Family

Click here to see the full gallery. Cactus, Desert, and Snow! What an amazing combination. I took this adorable family that I have been photographing for a few years now to Lost Dutchman Museum. We climbed up a bit to capture Superstion and Four Peaks with snow topped beauty. The sun didn't hide behind the clouds like I wanted but that didn't stop me from capturing these gorgeous shots. During the shoot JoAn gave me the nicest compliment and said I better never leave AZ. I just get so happy to hear words like that from my clients it make my heart literally tickle. The first time I photographed her was when she was preggo with Mallory and we did a beautiful milk bath session. She's in my galleries. We have done a couple family sessions and of course Christmas photos with Santa. We got the classic crying kiddo. 

Mama to be

Date: 02/26/2019, Author: DK Brittain, Category: Photography

Gris called me at the last minute for a maternity shoot and I was thrilled. We decided on Veterans' Oasis because of the variety of backdrops. This baby girl is due next week and I found out that Daddy is getting 16 weeks of paternity leave. Wow. That's amazing! Mama is getting 16 weeks off too. I remember when I had to go back to the classroom after my first born was 4 months. I remember that feeling. I requested a leave of absence and I was denied. I was so upset. Anyway, I love that they both get 16 weeks off together. To see the full gallery click here.

Whiskey and 30

Date: 02/15/2019, Author: DK Brittain, Category: Photography

We celebrated a dirty 30 with some whiskey. Happy dirty thirty birthday to you! Look how gorgeous you look! I had so much fun planning this adult birthday session. No cake but we love whiskey more than cake! Not only was this gorgeous woman celebrating and documenting her journey into her 30s, she was also celebrating a new chapter in her life. Changes are inevitable and we need to make the best of them. Choose to celebrate the unknown and soak up the moments. Be present in what is happening in your life because life is really too short. We often don't slow down until it's too late and then we look back and regret. Take this moment to reevaluate the important things in your life and choose to make time for them. Parkinson's Law say if it's important enough then you'll make time, if not you'll make an excuse. I believe this to be true. I often make excuses for things not getting done. I am going to approch this year with a brand new attitude. I will stumble but I won't quit. I may fail but I won't quit. As long as I don't quit I am still successful! Happy 2019! It's my year. Make it yours too! Click here to see the rest of the gallery.

Valentine Mini

Date: 01/28/2019, Author: DK Brittain, Category: Photography

This Valentine mini session turned out amazing! Isn't she the cutest cupid ever. Whenever I have a vision in mind, I never know if it's going to meet my expectations and this one did. Typically it meets other expectations in good ways. The weather wasn't ideal as it was windy and really cold, but nonetheless they turned out amazing. I am still booking these minis!
