Phon D & Coon Bluff: Naderi Maternity

Meet the Naderi family, they are expecting another boy and are so very excited about it!  You can already tell that Aiden is going to be a good big brother.  It was so much fun getting to know Naderi and her family.  I hope that the transition from a family of 3 to a family of 4 goes smoothly.

Veteran’s Oasis Park: Tribble Family

Lets talk about the Tribble family and how fun they are!  Ed and I have known each other from our days at channel 12.  It was so nice to see a familiar face when I took my daughter to Preschool one day and I saw Ed there dropping off his boys.  Then fast forward to this past year and Ed’s youngest boy and my son Kyle were in the same class.  It was so nice to see him and to finally meet his sweet wife.  I was so excited when Ed came up to me one day at school and asked if we could do a mini session.  We happen to schedule it on the hottest day of the year so far but the kiddos did a fantastic job and we were still able to capture some beautiful images for them!  One of my favorite photos that I needed or wanted to include was the funny outtake it was how we ended our fun session!

Usery Regional Mountain: Bauer Family

I had so much fun in the desert with Morgan, Adam, and Aiden!  Morgan let me take control of all of their session even helping them decided what to wear.  It was so fun going through Morgan’s closet because I always love what she is wearing so I knew that she would have all kinds of things to choose from.  The harder ones were actually the boys so I sat down and basically shopped for her on H&M’s website and we were able to decided what the boys were going to wear and I feel like it all came together so nice.   Their session was one of my hour sessions so we were able to concentrate on Aiden and full family shots and then we were able to get a lot of couples pictures at the end.

Castro Valley Ca: Vincent Family

I absolutely love and and adore this family they are absolutely the best.  Liz was there with me through some of the hardest days after Kyle was born and he didn’t want anything to do with sleep.  Malcom and Taylor are such good friends even though they don’t get to see each other as much now.  It always makes me so happy to still have these friends in my life from our time in California.  While I was up in Castro Valley for a mothers day weekend away I snuck in some family pictures for Liz and I am so glad that we were able to find some time to do this together.  Love you girl and I miss you!

Veteran’s Oasis Park: Caitlin Turns 30

Have you ever wanted to do a birthday session but thought to yourself you can’t do that you are way to old.  Well first off you are not old and anyone can do them!  Take Caitlin for instance we did a big 30 session.  We all know 30 is the new 20 but Caitlin doesn’t look a day over 21!  She is the sweetest she has 3 kiddos and currentLy is a foster parent.  I look up to her the way she handles everything with such grace and her kids are always so well behaved in public.  I am sure at home is a different story.  Anyways to help her celebrate her fabulous husband threw her a fun birthday party with dinner, and almost escape room, and just an all around fun evening.  Anyways Happy 30th Birthday Caitlin!!!

Rio Salado Habitat Restoration Area: Haldiman Boys

It was so fun hanging with Kelsey, Strat, and Percy!  Percy just turned one so to celebrate we did pictures.  We got to hang out in nature in the middle of the city.  There is this cool place in downtown Phoenix called Rio Salado Habitat Restoration and the Strat thought it was cool because we found some butterflies.  It was so fun to get Kelsey in on the photo taking fun too!  I am loving watching these boys grow up they are both the best little guys!

Veteran’s Oasis Park: Weaver Family

I loved getting to work with Sarah and her family.  Sarah and I have known each other for probably a good 10 years.  It has been fun getting to know Sarah and her beautiful family. Our kids are pretty close in age so it is fun getting them together. Their oldest Jack is the sweetest and he had a pose he wanted his family to try and I have to say it turned out pretty good!  Way to go Jack you have an eye for sure!
