This was from a wedding I shot back in the spring. I rarely shoot in the mid-morning but it is fun to once in a while and I like these images we got! I had the privilege of working with this cute couple for their engagements; as well as several of their extended family members in the past. I ALWAYS appreciate (so much) your referrals. Thank you, thank you!
Back in April I took these 2 year photos for my friend’s little guy. The balloons were a fun prop (they always are)! I thought I’d post some even though I took these months and months ago. I have a lot of shoots I’d like to share from this year coming up.
You should probably recognize this gorgeous girl. I’ve been honored over the years to work with her and her family for pictures many times, starting with her high school graduation photos! She complimented me once again for asking me to take her wedding photos. The day before their wedding we did a bride and groom shoot at the Mesa, Arizona Temple, where they were married. What a darling couple, right? Congratulations you two!!
Early this month my baby girl turned a year old! I’ve never done a cake smash session with any of my kids so I wanted to attempt it. The first day we went to use this location it was covered by a parked car so we had to reschedule. The cake barely made it another day! We winded up having to do this shoot on one of the hottest days in August, excessive heat warnings and all. So we really were not there very long. She wasn’t too interested in “smashing” the cake, but rather took dainty little bites. Ha ha. None of my kids really like getting too dirty. Anyway I still do like what we got, and I love that I was finally able to use this location for her! The Cinderella Wall in Mesa is really amazing. I had one of my first ever photo shoots here back in 2009 so it was nice to revisit and take her pictures there. Ever since I moved to Arizona I intended on taking my daughter there (:
I was excited to hear from Heather about doing this shoot. I lived in Kentucky for a year in 2011 and was able to do family pictures for them. We’ve just happened to live in the same places at the same time. I was thrilled she wanted pictures again, I love my returning customers! I took these around mother’s day. So fun when mom’s get pictures with their kiddos for mother’s day. She has the cutest baby twin girls, doesn’t she? Thanks again Heather, it was fun!
Back in March my oldest turned five. I didn’t want to have a typical photo shoot with him, because if you have ever seen my (deceased) personal blog you know I would always do little games of dress up with him for shoots. I couldn’t break tradition (; Then it occurred to me that I have not one but TWO cute boys so why not have both model a little (keeping my birthday boy the main focus of course). This is part one. Part two (to be honest) isn’t much different except for the fact that it’s a few more images of cute little indians- just in a different location. These were fun (five months later), I hope you like. (:
