Sara & Travis-Engaged

You wouldn't believe the surprise I got with these two! They originally met over three years ago and were just friends. Ehren and I instantly liked Travis (me with the long term memory of an elephant) specifically remember telling Ehren that I bet these two will get married down the road and he agreed. Well, eventually life took them in different directions and they went their separate ways. During the course of the next three years, he would check in on her from time to time to see how she was doing and how life was treating her. Well, just a couple of months ago as my sister was finally out of a relationship they agreed to visit each other. That lead to both of them calling me out of the blue two days ago and asking for my blessing in getting married!!! I was SOOOO excited as of course I felt he was the right guy for my baby sister, excited to shoot their engagement photos, and excited and stressed at the same time that I had ten days to plan their wedding (which a photog friend will share after the wedding)what a load to have put on ya overnight right??!! So off we went to the shoot! I couldn't be more ecstatic with the way their turned out, exactly as I pictured and everyone loved them! Here are a few of my favorites from their shoot!
Ok, so this one I have to share the makings of...So Sara was wearing these awesome 5" leopard heels that kept sinking in ground, so less than a quarter way through the shoot, he decided to pick her up and carry her everywhere we needed to go to get the shots(how awesome is that?!) and so as we were leaving the shoot spot, he picks her up and being behind them I see them, the sunset, and I saw the most perfect shot EVER in my head and had to snap it! What do you think? Couldn't get anymore romantic right?
Ok, well I have LOTS to do before the 17th! TTFN!

Jady and Baby Drew

My sister Jady recently blessed me with a new nephew about six months ago and he is a little butterball of joy! All smiles, coos, and cuteness just for his auntie! We were out letting Tyler(my other nephew) and Cali ride their bikes (which sadly I forgot to take pics of) and so we were out enjoying the beautiful weather here in AZ, which sometimes is hard to come by when not in the Fall. My sister wanted me to snap a few pics of her and Drew before they left. I just love them! Especially all my nieces and nephews!

The Smith Family

This shoot was with a friend from high school and her two darling girls. Sadie and I go back all the way to my freshman year of high school, both of us shared a mutual friend and kept in touch via Facebook. So we decided to meet at Saguaro Ranch Park to do the shoot. It amazed me when I met her daughters how much her oldest looked like her and her youngest like her high school sweetheart as I can't tell with mine who looks like who, lol. This shoot was extra fun for me because we were able to catch up and talk about our shared love of photography. I also met her mom, who seemed so patient and fun! I really like this family and hope to keep shooting the girls as they get older!

Here are some of my favorite shots from their session.

Isn't Megan beautiful, she was fun and so easy to pose and even had some of her own ideas...what isn't to love about that?!

I have to say, I was in love with Maria, she was so funny, very photogenic and I loved her red hair (I'm a sucker for it).

Sadie and her darling girls! I just LOVE this one!!!

Such a fun, loving, and joyous family...they made my day!

The Wewer kids.

My brother-in-law's sister wanted Christmas photos of her two little cuties, Isaiah and Aliyah. We have talked a few times and I really like her we have a lot in common. We decided to go out to Verrado and do the shoot at the huge Christmas tree in the center of that town. It is always a great backdrop for Christmas pictures. Aliyah and Isaiah were a blast and so cute! Isaiah wasn't feeling well but he was all smiles and happy, she sure is lucky to have a happy little guy like that. Just lights up whenever anyone looks at him. They were so easy to work with! Isn't Aliyah beautiful??!!

He wanted up on these spheres so bad and when he finally got on top, he kissed it and was so happy and I believe he said, "Ball". It was so cute!

This one is my absolute favorite of her!

Welcome Baby Thomas!

My friend just recently had a baby and a very cute one at that! He was wide awake for our session and very somber. He watched me the whole time almost like wondering what I was doing. I would get a smile here and there. He was such a great sport and finally feel asleep to get some super cute shots of him sleeping. Gosh I sure miss the baby stage! This was so fun to snuggle him and enjoy him and then give him back to his mom. I sure do love capturing these special moments in time.

Kaitlin and Bella

My friend Kaitlin and her daughter Bella met me for a session this weekend. This mother and daughter duo were a blast to work with! Kaitlin is a very soft spoken, kind, and beautiful gal and her daughter Bella....well she is a fun, energetic, and darling little girl! She was having a blast and even had some poses she wanted to do herself. I had a wonderful time working with them!
See what I mean?! Isn't Kaitlin stunning?! I can't put my finger on who celebrity wise she reminds me of. I want to say Melanie Griffith when she was younger but not sure.

Isn't Bella cute?!

For now that is all the sneaks I have. I have more editing to do and homework. In the middle of a huge project right now but had to pull myself away to take a break and post some for her. I have another shoot coming up so I will have more up soon!

Thanks for stopping by!
