Sessions: Bryce & Tobin, The Wedding

Every detail carefully & beautifully crafted, this long-awaited day was just breathtaking.

This wedding celebration was an honor to be a part of, to capture. The little sister of my best, and a beautiful young woman whom I've had the great honor of watching grow up. Her beloved is a man who loves her deeply, one who would make her father proud. I look forward with anticipation to the adventures they'll share, and how this love will grow deeper still. 



With love & blessings,

Sessions: The "M" Family

This beautiful family has blessed me with including me in their photo sessions for a few years now, and it's just so fun watching their kids grow and dialogue throughout the shoot, they are just so sweet. AZ is blessed to have this Midwestern family adding more beauty and grace to our community!


Sessions: Our Own

Every year I have the great honor and pleasure of photographing a variety of families as they prepare to celebrate the Christmas season. And every once in awhile I get brave enough to photograph my own little family along with my parents, knowing that the do-it-yourself approach will take a little more legwork and patience! Every time we take our own photos, we end up with a combination of myself, my love, and my dad all chipping in to take snaps. This year, however, we asked a very sweet stranger to take a couple of shots of the whole family, and she did great! So, a big thank you to a Phoenix area stranger who went out of her way to do something sweet, and a big thank you to my kids who patiently waited as we worked through this extra special shoot. I'd say this was our most fun year by far!


Sessions: Baby E

This was such a precious and special session, celebrating the new life of an old friend. This beautiful baby's dad and I have known each other two and a half decades, so watching the progression that led to Baby E has been such a blessing. It was so sweet seeing Nick fall in love with his beautiful and darling wife, pursue their dreams together, and now grow their family with this very loved little girl. It's always an honor to get to step into the lives of people I know and capture them in such special times. Congratulations, "S" family!!!

Sessions: P & A

This was an extra meaningful session because I was given the opportunity to capture one of my husband's two beautiful sisters and her spouse. I so enjoyed their adventurous spirit of seeking out fun locations within their downtown, and it paid off. We stumbled upon a gorgeous car, met some sweet people who knew the owners, and captured some unexpected and memorable shots in the middle of it. An overall win!
