1st Year Cake Smash

Date: 06/13/2018, Author: DK Brittain, Category: Photography

This baby girl is a doll face. Those adorable baby blue eyes made me work hard for those smiles but look at that face. When her mama told me she was making that teepee I was super excited. I have been wanting a cake smash session like this. Even though it was overcast and the heat spiked that day, managed to get some wonderful memories. Happy 1st Birthday :)

Sandra and German

Date: 06/04/2018, Author: DK Brittain, Category: Photography

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!

Senior Portraits

Date: 05/30/2018, Author: DK Brittain, Category: Photography

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

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.

Bokeh and Turner

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.
