Desert Maternity Shoot | Maternity Photographer

The first image was shot on film and the rest are digital.  Do you see a difference?  Honestly I love the soft look of film so, so much.  Also, that faint sun flare is out of this world.  Anyway, dont you love the creativity here?  She showed up with all these fun outfits showcasing her darling little bump.  I also got to meet and photograph their baby which was a treat!

Brandon + Corinne Wedding | Arizona Film Photographer

Back in the summer I had the opportunity to shoot a beautiful wedding in Phoenix.  It was one of my first weddings incorporating film.  Here are some film shots from the day!  I got PLENTY of great digital shots but I just love the color and feel of film so that's what I'm sharing!  When we took these it was after the cute couple said "I do" and before the reception - at a park in Phoenix.  A dust storm was rolling in but we were lucky it didn't mess with us too bad- just a little cloud cover (:

Gilbert Riparian Reserve in Film | Arizona Family Photographer

My love for film photography has only deepened in the last few months.  It really is something special, don't you agree?  This was my first shot of a family on film and I really love it!  I can't wait to take my business to Utah and get to shoot at new locations and meet new people... but I have to say I have been so grateful for everyone who has ever booked me in the past five years.  Can you believe this is my FIFTH YEAR?!  I'm especially grateful to my returning clients; like this sweet family.  Tansey, I hope you do come to Utah so I can take your pictures again!  Such a sweet, gorgeous family.

Brooke on film

I can't believe how long it's been since I've posted.  I've shot so much film since I got my film camera and this is only my second post of my film shots?  Craziness.  If you wanted to see more examples go HERE where I also show you the difference between film and digital.  I have pricing for each medium so before you book with me it's good to know what style of photography interests you the most!

So this is Brooke.  You saw her in a previous post.  She contacted me again about doing this styled shoot.  I love a retro feel in pictures!  Anyway I'll do my best to post more... and if you are a client and your pictures didn't make it to my website of Facebook it's not because I don't love you... I literally post like 1% of my work!  Thanks to ALL who I have had the chance to work with year.  It's been the best year yet!

Annie | Arizona Senior Photographer

Earlier this year I got to work with several awesome seniors.  I was able to try out this new location and I loved it!  I haven't been back since it's a little ways from me but I hope to go back before I move!  Those red rocks are gorgeous, as is this adorable senior!  This was before I even bought my film camera otherwise I would've taken that along.

Boho Styled Shoot - Part 1 | Mesa, Arizona Photographer

I was privileged to get to photograph these lovely ladies just this past weekend.  Harley Chapman, a local makeup artist and hairdresser contacted me about this project.  She was the brains behind this collaboration and she did an excellent job styling these girls!  What gorgeous models too, am I right?  Anyway I hope you enjoy part one of these- part two will be just as fun (and include an old Ford truck)!  You can find Harley on instagram at @harleydoeshair if you are looking for a talented lady to help you out with your hair or makeup!

Katie + Timo | Mesa, AZ DenMar Estate Wedding Reception

Katie and Timo were such a sweet couple!  Aren't they just so adorable?!  I was blessed to get to work with them for their engagements, bridals, and wedding day.  Here are some of their reception photos.  I took and posted probably too many candids of people; but I love candids!  And I remember not even remembering who showed up to my reception (like I knew half the names in our guest book!) and so I wished I had more pictures to go along with it.  Thanks Katie and Timo!
