One of my favorite things as a photographer to be able to watch families grow. I’ve known this sweet family for a few years now, so it was so fun to be able to do a fall family session with their gorgeous little girls. The leaves were perfect….the day was gorgeous….and the family was adorable. :)
This was such a fun fall engagement session, with such a lovely couple! I can wait for their May wedding!
Meet Riggins!! The newest addition to my sister-in-law’s sweet family!
To say that this shoot started a little rocky would be a bit of an understatement! This little sweetie had missed her nap, so photos were the last thing she wanted to do. She wouldn’t even look at me for about the first 30 minutes. Luckily, I have a toddler…..I don’t break easily. And by the last 10 minutes of her shoot, she really warmed up to me! ;)
This little dude didn’t want to miss a minute of his photo shoot….so even at only 7 days old, he was awake the whole time. He tolerated being stuffed into a basket and having to wear woodland creature hats though….so I’d say he’s a keeper.
This engagement session was taken right as the monsoons were starting to make their appearance here in northern AZ. I feared we might get rained out but luckily the storms held off and the monsoon conditions created the best light for this session though! We got all the lighting in one session….dark and moody, to light and hazy, and then finally bright and pure magic. There was a price to pay for this light though and it was my makeup melting off my face and onto the back of my camera. :)
It would make sense that it hadn’t rained for 100 days….and then the moisture decided to make an appearance for this lovely couple’s day. Luckily it cleared just in time to still have the gorgeous rooftop reception. And the sky that was left after the rain was pure magic.
These two wanted just a simple celebration, with a ceremony set in the gorgeous pines of Goldwater Lake. It was short, sweet, and oh so beautiful.
Small, backyard celebrations have officially become my favorite. Doesn’t hurt that with this one every detail was so beautiful, and the couple are actually good friends of ours. Plus, holy crap are they photogenic together! And as an added bonus….man can they dance! Gotta love a cowboy wedding. ;)
This bride to-be texted me prior to their session to warn me that they weren’t photogenic….at all. The second I saw them pull up, I new she had lied. ;) These two were so fun and interactive, they were a blast to work with. Combine that with a perfect country backdrop….I’m in love with the results.
