Mesa Engagement Photographer | Chris & Trista

I was trying to show a client what this location looked like and realized I couldn’t find the blog post of Chris and Trista’s Mesa Engagement session! Somehow I forgot to blog it…oops! I definitely didn’t want to let the opportunity pass without posting about this amazing couple. Trista is best friends with another client of mine whose wedding I photographed a few years back. I’m so happy she wanted to use me too. Both Chris and Trista work in politics and so we chose Downtown Mesa as their location. We even took some outside of Chris’s office. It was a lot of fun getting to know these two a little better before their wedding day. I’m excited for their wedding in a couple of months! I know it will be beautiful and the weather will definitely be better than it was at their engagement session. I love that they brought their adorable puppy with them to their session. His personality really showed in their pictures and he seemed happy to join in on the fun! They brought along some family members to hold his leash when he wasn’t needed in the pictures. We really explored the city and found some awesome areas to take pictures. I love being a Mesa engagement photographer and I seriously can’t wait for their wedding in November.

I had so much fun photographing precious Eloise in her home last week. She was nice and sleepy as long as she was all wrapped up. Mom requested that I bring lots of neutral colors and the wraps matched her bedroom perfectly. This sweet girl’s bedroom is the cutest thing ever. It was decorated with white, grey, lavender and pink. I’m jealous that she has such a fancy room to sleep in each night! I really enjoyed this lifestyle newborn photography session. It’s not too often that I get requests to travel into clients homes for their newborn pictures but it’s always fun when I do. It gives me a break from the norm and newborns look so cute in their adorable bedrooms.

Eloise with the book that started it all 🙂 I love that she has a book with her name on it to decorate her bedroom!

Doesn’t every newborn hang out on their adorable shelves?

Such a cute corner to rock a baby in 🙂

Of course we had to take advantage of her adorable bedroom rug.

Infant Photos {Charly}

Charly was the sweetest little baby during her newborn photo session. Her big brother did so well with her in pictures. He could only handle a few minutes of pictures at a time so we took a few breaks in between and did some of Charly alone and bribed big brother to get him to take a few more. Mom and Dad drove 2 cars out to my home studio so that after big brother was done with pictures, he could go home and we could devote the rest of the time to Charly. She did great on her own….kept on sleeping! I love the colors Mom chose and the pops of color in the bows. Charly made a lot of adorable faces during her session as you can see toward the bottom. She smiled, puckered her lips, and dreamed like a champ!

Newborn Twin Photographer

Newborn Twin Photographer

I go way back with this family. Desiree & Tim were wedding clients of mine at the Japanese Friendship Gardens a few years back. I took sweet Amelia’s newborn pictures when she was born also. I hadn’t heard from them for a little while and it turns out she was busy being pregnant with twin boys! I couldn’t be happier for these new additions to their family. I always wanted to have a set of twins…call me crazy! These boys were so precious and I am so excited for their family to have grown by 2! I went a little crazy buying new wraps for this session. I couldn’t help it, boy stuff is so cute. We started out with pictures of Amelia with her little brothers and some family photos. Then we focused on just the boys both together and alone. Can’t wait to see these guys again as they grow.

This has to be one of my most favorite maternity sessions ever. Their love and excitement for the arrival of their baby was infectious! Jenaya and Anthony are welcoming a baby boy into their family soon and I know they’re going to be great parents because of how much they already love him. They are excited for the many “firsts” that they will experience together as new parents. We couldn’t have asked for a better evening (besides the pesky mosquitoes) for a maternity session. It was a partly cloudy evening and we had this location completely to ourselves, which never happens here. Thanks so much for working with me and I can’t wait to meet your little bundle!

Laura & Joseph were great to work with again for their maternity photo session. Laura is pregnant with twin girls! She’s amazing to be growing these sweet little sisters inside of her. I can’t wait to see how their first son does with his new little sisters when they arrive.

We met up early on a Saturday morning for this session and did a quick mini shoot. I love how the pictures turned out and I really loved the blues and pinks in their outfits.

Lindsay was such a great person to work with for her senior pictures. She is the sweetest person and I enjoyed getting to know her. Lindsay is about to graduate from PA School which is such an amazing accomplishment. I know she will do so great at the Urgent Care facility that she’s already got a job working at. Anyway, we met up early on a Saturday morning in July and she was such a good sport with the extreme heat and humidity that joined us for her senior session. I loved the soft pink dress she chose and it was a lot of fun incorporating her stethoscope and cap and gown into some of the photos.

The Parent Family got out of their car for our early morning family photo session and I had to let out a huge smile because they looked so awesome! I absolutely loved their clothing choices and how it all came together with the location. They were so awesome to brave the humidity and heat that morning! I loved the little girls in their cute matching pink dresses. And I loved seeing Carson again so soon after his newborn session. Here is a link to check those out. Thanks so much for having me be your family photographer and I hope to see you all again for another session soon.

Phoenix Wedding

Daniel & Kristin’s Phoenix Wedding was amazing! I am probably going to post way too many pictures from that day but I just couldn’t help it! There are not enough words to describe the love these two have for each other. I really think it shows in every single picture of them on this special day.
