Keyser Sister Session

Chastity, Teriney, and Journey….I know what you are thinking very unique names; but these girls were all sweet and very unique. Teriney attends Ironwood and after several failed attempts, a hail storm, spring break, and busy schedules we were finally able to get together to take some pictures of just the 3 of them! We met up at Encanto park and while it was a very busy Sunday I managed to get some great group and individuals shots of the girls for their mom to enjoy. I was finally able to get their session completed today due to a busy schedule but they are up and I think the girls and their mom are super excited!!! Please make sure to leave them some love

Brooklyn’s Senior Session

Brooklyn a senior at Ironwood High School is involved in cheer, dance, and even the COOP program at Ironwood. This little darling comes into the library all the time requesting that items get laminated for COOP, and I just sigh and say ‘Sure Brooklyn”. I was incredibly thrilled for the opportunity to go out and photograph Brooklyn as this chapter in her life comes to a close. Brooklyn was more of the you tell me where to go and I will show up type, so we decided on CCV as a location. I love the combination of grass and texture and desert and water…not to mention the staff there is always very pleasant when I show up early in the mornings to photograph!! The funniest moment of this entire session was probably when I was trying to get Brooklyn to squat down and the first time we did this she couldn’t do it!!! But don’t worry by the end of the session she got the hang of it!! Be sure to leave her some love!!!

Annika’s Senior Session

Annika is a senior at Peoria High School, Class of 2014. I was super excited when you mom had called me to schedule Annika’s senior pictures. She had gotten my name as a referral from one of my other Peoria seniors. I had the opportunity to sit and talk with Annika and her mom to discuss her vision of senior pictures and what it was she thought she wanted. We talked and she showed me images and Pinterest of course and the conclusion we came to was downtown and urban. She likes architecture and different textures, so of course we decided on dowtown Phoenix. I think her mom was a little uncertain of me in the beginning when the very first thing I wanted Annika to do was climb on a ledge on the side of a building and she may have unintentionally gotten a bit dirty!!! However, throughout Annika was a total trooper and she dealt beautifully with dirt, dark tunnels, and outrageous wind!! She was a trooper, I kept telling her mom that is always an adventure with me! Make sure to leave her some love on her senior session!

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!

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 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.
