The Riparian Preserve: Ranya+Adam’s Engagement Session

Ranya found me on facebook and I am glad she did.  I love meeting new people, Ranya and Adam were the sweetest.  They seemed all excited about their Summer New York wedding I bet it will be amazing.  New York in the summer, I want to go sometime.  I have dreamed of visiting New York City and seeing shows and touring the stations though that might be harder now that I don’t work for one of the affiliates (if anyone wants to hook a girl up).  Anyways I am so thankful that Ranya reached out to be to capture some engagement pictures while her Fiance Adam was in town.

Coon Bluff: Oldham Family

I always love meeting new families, especially families who I have things in common with.  Surprisingly in all the years that my husband has worked for his company Andie and I have not ever gotten the chance to meet till now.  I am so happy that we finally got to meet she is the sweetest and has such a fun family.  You can tell that Kash and Zane love their big sister Alyana.  And she has it figured out how to get her brothers to do things bribe them with Starbucks lol.  Andie and Kable are very sweet together and I am so honored that they chose me to capture this moment in time for their family.  Here are just a few of my favorites from their family!

Veterans Oasis Park: Patton Family

I love this mama and I am so happy she has come into my life when I needed her most.  I love that each of my friends have seemed to be placed in my life for different things that I have needed in life and I am happy to have her as part of my tribe.  I think we had so much fun during this session, the girls did so well as Rachael and I talked we decided this year went way better then last year but the girls know me better this year then last and I think that helps a lot.  Anyways here are some of my favorites from their session.

Veterans Oasis Park: Farmer Family Session

First off I want to talk about Lucy this girl came ready for her pictures.  I said Lucy you want me to start you and she looked at me with this pose.farmer_family_blog (1 of 17)

I mean if this doesn’t make you smile then I don’t know what will.  Nathaniel wasn’t so bad either.  The whole family came ready.   It always makes me so happy to hang out with my friends and this was no different.  Meredith and her family moved here from Florida not to long after my family moved here from Florida.  Here are a few of my favorites from their session.  I love the beautiful fall leaves we were able to find.

The Riparian Preserve: Grandparents Session

How special is it to get the grandparents in the frame.  I jump all over an opportunity to capture grandparents with their grandkids.  This time was no different Nicole contacted me to capture her parents with the kids before her dad has to return to Canada after visiting his newest grand-daughter.  I always love hanging with Charlie, Jack, and the newest member Ella.  Everyone did a wonderful job, you have to be fast when it comes to toddlers they don’t sit still long but Jack did an awesome job.  Here are a few of my favorites from their grandparents session.

Shea Wash, Scottsdale: Rathbun Family Session

Last year I got together with Cassie and her family and man how much have her kids changed over the year.  Bryson was so sweet he absolutely being in front of the camera.  I had so much fun Avery was a little shy but as soon as we started exploring she was so happy.  This family is such a sweet family, and I absolutely loved this location.  Sometimes you see pictures and you see the dreamy location only to find out it is a wash off of a busy street.  I want to go back!

Fresh48: Meet Baby Ronin

 

I was beyond excited for my friend Julia and her husband Lee when they announced that they were expecting a little boy!  I wasn’t in town when they had their little girl Kennedy so it is fun to be in town for Ronin.  I was extra excited and honored when she asked if I would do a fresh 48 for her little family.  Ronin is just the cutest thing in the world and he has 3 of the best big sisters.  One of which was at the hospital too meet him.  Kennedy is just the cutest and already such a great big sister.  She is planning on teaching him all the fun things!  Here are a few of my favorite from their session plus a little film that I put together for them!

 

Veterans Oasis: Porter Family Mini

I got to meet Marie through another mom friend and we became fast friends.  She is the sweetest mom raising two very awesome human beings!  Hudson and Gemma are two of the cutests kids.  We did valentine’s day pictures back in February and Gemma didn’t want anything to do with me or my camera and this time we were able to capture her super cuteness.  And we ended the night checking on the ducks in the water!

Fresh48: Meet Baby Ella

Let’s just talk about this Fresh 48 session. Nicole allowed me to come in after Baby Ella came out of the NICU. Nicole was my lucky mom who was the first to receive a film with her Fresh 48 session and let me tell you we have all melted over the film of baby Ella with her little cries and her sweet little noises that they make. Baby Ella was a few weeks early but she was a sweet 6lbs 8ozs with a head full of hair. I am always jealous of those sweet babies that come out with a head full of hair.

Here is a short film from her session along with some of my favorite images from her session!

 

 

Salt River: Magill Maternity Session

So I have been keeping a secret a kind of big secret.  My sister was pregnant with her 5th little cutie.  What makes her story a special one that she is doing this while her husband is on the other side of the world serving our country.  Some might call her crazy I may have a couple of times but she is also a superhero.  All military spouses are superheros.  They may not be the ones fighting in the wars but they are serving our country right here by holding down the fort taking care of the family making sure that everything goes on while their other half is not there.  Christina is doing all this while growing my 12th Niece.  That is right I have 6 nephews and now I have 6 nieces.  She did a road trip this summer with my parents and came out to visit my family and while they were out here we did a quick session down by the river.   Here are a few of my favorites from the session!  We also did some pictures for my niece Paige’s 8th birthday!
