Kaitlyn the Future Beauty Queen

Say hello to Kaitlyn, she is one drop dead gorgeous lady!  We have been planning and talking about getting pictures taken for a long while. She has officially decided that she wants to enter into the Miss Arizona pageant, which of course I think she will be a rock star at! She is currently studying at NAU, which hopes of going off to law school after graduation. She is such a silly goofy girl and it was so great to finally see her and hang out with her after only communicating via text for so long. It was fun having her be my model for the day, and let me tell you that she was quite good at it. I have a little fashionista on my hands!! I can’t wait for our next session together! Check out her complete session and make sure to leave her some love.

Miss Haley

Meet Haley, she is the little cousin of my good friend Kaitlyn. Haley came and joined Kaitlyn and I this weekend to get some head shots taken as well. She is a freshman at Mountain Ridge High School, and is considering competing in this years Miss Junior-Teen Arizona pageant. The idea was put into her head by Kaitlyn who is going to enter into Miss Arizona as well. She is a super sweet girl, and obviously photographs beautifully. She had a very fun and kind personality which was seen behind the scenes with Kaitlyn singing and dancing around. Check out her complete session and make sure to leave her some love!

Veronica & Nicole

I have known Veronica and Nicole for a few years now; we all first met while working at Hollister together. These two girls are full of life and personality; they are beautiful on the inside and the out. It was most challenging getting these two to sit still and smile because when together they are nothing but laughs and giggles! I always enjoy being around these ladies, they can’t help but put you in a good mood. Check out their blog from a hidden oasis in Glendale, make sure to leave them some love!!

The Fisk Family

This has to be one of funniest, nicest, laid back families I think I have ever worked with. This will be the 3rd time that I have photographed them or a member of this family and I am so grateful for every experience that I have had. This is their holiday session out that was taken out in Vistancia. This has become one of our favorite locations to photograph at.  Hope you enjoy their session, make sure to leave them some love!

The Grose Family

Oh how I love spending time with the Grose family, and much time do we spend together!! Meg the youngest participates in volleyball at Peoria High School which I help coach at. The Grose family is just that tough love kind of family, full of shoves and sarcastic remarks, but all meant out of love! For this winter family shoot we went to Thunderbird Mountain. I actually discovered a side of this mountain that I never knew existed which I found to be very exciting!!! The session went very well even with a baby hike, Julia, the oldest, rushed to the shoot after spending the entire day at the car dealership, and a very small puppy dressed as Rudolph thinking he was an attack dog! Please make sure to leave them some love! EnjoyIMG_6832 IMG_6851 IMG_69051 IMG_6817 IMG_6865 IMG_6879 IMG_6910 IMG_6897 IMG_6882 IMG_6923 IMG_6823

The Hersh Family

This was my first time meeting and working with this family. This years black friday we met at CCV where I was introduced to her adorable kids. Jason was the oldest and was cool, calm and collected. Caleb was in the middle who I found may have a future in modeling when he gets older, he was just a ham in front of the camera! The baby of the bunch was little Kennedy. Just a bundle of 20 month joy running around through the grass and looking up at the planes. Here is there sibling session, make sure to leave them some love!

Carpenter Sisters

Meet the Carpenter sisters! The oldest Breanna wanted some pictures of just her and her sisters out and about being goofy and having a good time. I did the best that I could under the circumstances, we had changed the photo shoot time to 4:00 in order to have more light during the day. However downtown phoenix and a wild 2 year old seemed to be too much from Bre! They arrive in downtown at nearly 5pm with Adrianna (the toddler) having not wanted to wear the outfit picked out for her and no interest in wearing her shoes. Working ferociously against the clock to get good images of the 3 of them together before we lost all the light, I managed to get a few shots before it quickly turned into night!! Check out their sisterly love session.

The Curtis Family

Ian Curtis is a teacher at the high school that I work at. Ian also coaches football and his wife is a teacher as well. His family hadn’t really had professional on location family pictures taken before; so of course I was thrilled when he asked me. The Curtis family is a beautiful one for sure, they were easy-great family to work with. Please feel free to check out their images and leave them some love!

The Carter Grands

I did a session a few weeks ago of the Carter Grands. In all the commotion of the wedding ceremony I photographed in September; I some how managed to not get a single photograph of all the grand kids together. So we dressed them all up again in their finest and put on a show! Preston was his same serious self, but after a while and the freedom to run through the grass I did manage to finally get a picture of him smiling. Lincoln was all about the camera, and took any opportunity he could while his sister and Preston were exercising their right to fussiness. Little Piper had more dress than she knew what to do with, and I think by the end of the session it was ripped and muddy but she was adorable regardless. Here is there session, be sure to leave them some love!

The Preach Family

Say hello to the Preach family. This family breeds beauty, brains, and athletic volleyball talent. I used to play volleyball with Lindsay several years ago and their aunt used to coach me. After e-mails and text messages to schedule a good date and time that would work for all the girls, I was finally able to meet them at their home on a Sunday evening for some family pictures. With this family it was just a matter of point and click with my camera. Their sweet personalities and genuine disposition and great genes make them super easy to photograph! Enjoy their session, make sure to leave them some love!
