Nichols Park: Valentine’s Day Minis!

2019 is going to be great year I just know it. And to kick off 2019 I held a morning of Valentine’s Day Minis and I had some of the cutest kiddos come out for it! I had 4 families participate and I think we had a lot of fun. For a few it was their first Valentine’s Day.

Chandler In-Home: Patton Family

So when Rachael and I talked about what she wanted to do for her family session she had expressed an interest in doing pictures in front of their christmas tree.  So we came up with this fun idea to have her family decorate their tree before we took family pictures.  It was fun doing some lifestyle pictures for them as this was there first Christmas in the desert.  So here are some of the pictures from their in-home lifestyle session.

Family Session:| Kirsch family Riparian Reserve at Water Ranch

What a nice night with the Kirsch family.  We had a nice sunset at the Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch.  The nice sunset and Kayla’s pretty blue dress helped to make her Sunset hair standout.

I am so happy that I have gotten to know Kayla as a friend and miss Bailey has quickly become one of my kids favorites.  We are going to miss them when they move back to Florida.


Family: Nunez Family Session at Scorpion Gulch

I was so excited to take the Nunez family pictures.  I was contacted by Kim Nunez about capture some pictures of her grand kids.  I was excited because one of her grand kids I had known from when I attended her church 5 years ago.

Jessie and Joey and their children were so much fun.  Ellie was definitely the star of the show, and I could not believe how much Gunner had grown over the years I remember him as this cute little 5 year old and now he is a handsome 9 year-old.  We headed to Scorpion Gulch and it was an excellent back drop for their family session.  There were just so many different places that we could capture their pictures.  Family sessions are always so much fun, working with little ones is my favorite!

Mommy & Me: Huyett Ladies

I am super lucky to have these ladies in my life.  They entered it 5 years ago when we purchased our first home.  They are our neighbors and good friends.

I was so excited to take the ladies out to capture some pictures for Janel’s mother’s day gift.  We decided to head down to downtown Gilbert.  There was this one hallway that in particular that I wanted to find and it definitely worked for what we wanted!

The Hays Family

I had so much fun with the Hay’s family.  They were my very last family in Florida.  Madison is just the cutest and reminds me of my own daughter spunky.  And Austin is seems a bit shy but full of a lot of energy.  We had such a great time at Lake Runnymede Conservation area.  That had to be by far my favorite place to shoot in Florida. I love the moss hanging from the trees!
