pereboom family

Anyone who knows me is aware I’m not the biggest fan of the desert. Mainly because I hate snakes and for the longest time saguaros weirded me out….something about their arms…. it’s not right. :) That being said, I think this family session has officially converted me into a desert lover. The colors, the soft light, the beautiful family….perfection.

cooper family

Can my neighbors get any cuter?! Seriously! I was so excited when they asked me to take their family photos because they’re all so dang good looking! Add in an old farm with antique trucks, and this session was magic. On a different topic, I’ll probably be going next door to have her braid my hair….

soto family

One of the most photogenic families around! I look forward to taking their photos every year….not just because they’re good friends, but mainly because they’re so adorable. And yes that’s my son making an appearance in their family photos. Haha. Meh.

e + s engagement

I adore this couple. I did small shoot for them in the spring and they were seriously the sweetest. When Sam contacted me that he wanted to do an engagement shoot when they were visiting again this fall, I was so excited! And a little nervous as I didn’t want to spoil any surprises. Seriously though….what guy thinks ahead enough and books the engagement shoot for their trip, prior to proposing?! I’m so glad he did because these two are so stinkin’ beautiful together….

de la cruz family

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. :)

saunders wedding

There couldn’t have been a prettier day for this adorable couple’s wedding. Set at the lovely American Ranch, every detail was picture perfect; making it such a fun wedding to capture. And that gown…..it doesn’t get better!

knightly wedding

I really have grown to love the desert…..I just wish it was a little cooler. ;) Even with the 104 degree temps….this was such a fun wedding to shoot! The bride wanted to make sure their fur babies were involved in their big day, so she rode to the aisle on her horse; and their two doggies made an appearance in the bridal party. The kind of stuff wedding photographers dream of. Plus it never hurts when the couple is wildly attractive and some of the nicest people around. Congrats Mike and Kasey!

camacho wedding

When envisioning a gorgeous, end of summer wedding, my guess would be most people would think of something resembling this wedding. Every detail was absolutely perfect, and just when you thought it couldn’t get better….they brought out the donuts…..

m + j engagement

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. :)
