Christmas in July? {Sierra Vista Family Photographer}

Happy July everyone!!  I hope everyone had a fantastic Independence Day and you were able to celebrate with those you love! I know with the temps nearing 3-digits and the kids in full swing of summer boredom, it’s hard to think about Christmas time in July.  However, the calendar here is getting full quickly and before you know it, we will be scrambling to gather the family together in fantastic outfits to update pictures and quickly get your holiday greetings created and sent out.

Growing Family {Sonoita, AZ Maternity & Family Photographer}

Years ago, I met this amazing couple at Ft. Hood.  We were all in the same unit and the husbands deployed together.  The next day, a few of us girls got together to divert our sorrows with a trip to IKEA. Nicole was the only one without a baby, but she cheerfully squished in the backseat with a 4 month old and a 12 month old.  Who cried.  The entire time.  I was convinced we had scarred Nicole for life and she would never have babies after being subjected to my cranky kid!  Fortunately, thisView full post »

Sweet Dreams {Sierra Vista Newborn Photographer}

I’d like to introduce you to little Baby {D}.  I had the privilege to meet this sweet & adorable baby girl a few weeks ago.  My amazing colleague & friend, Valerie, joined me to help with baby snuggling and backdrops/props/light (don’t let her fool you, she’s totally in it for the baby snuggling!).  We were able to go to {D}’s  house to spend time with the entire family.  Their beautiful home had the most perfect room with gorgeous light! We got set up andView full post »

There once was a cat named Gomer… {Sierra Vista, AZ Family & Pet Photographer}

There once was a cat named Gomer.  A very handsome cat with the most beautiful soft fur.  His eyes are gorgeous and the color indescribable!   However… Gomer did NOT like me or my camera!  My amazing assistant, Kayla, came with me to help entice Gomer’s attention.  However, he found our antics displeasing.  We tried feathers, lights, and even his favorite treats (chicken).   In spite of that, I was able to catch a few great shots of Gomer & his humans!  All in all,View full post »

Introducing Image Boxes! {Sierra Vista, AZ Newborn, Engagement, & Family Photographer}

I am so excited to share this new product with you!  I’ve played with a few of these in the past, but finally decided they are too good to keep to myself! These 5×7 custom designed image boxes are designed to hold 100 proofs and are a perfect keepsake.  I prefer to keep a few favorite prints in the box, then fill it with other important mementos.  The construction and quality of them is top-notch and I know it is something that will endure generations of love and sharing. Not onlyView full post »

What do I wear? 2014 Summer, Part 2 {Sierra Vista, AZ Family, Maternity, & Newborn Photographer}

How are we already to the middle of June??  This summer is speeding by.  I just hope the monsoons arrive sooner rather than later this year.  I am definitely ready to cool off a bit!  I hope you enjoyed the first installation of the summer color guide.  To give you a few more ideas and shopping inspiration, here are a few more suggestions.  I think my favorite is the cayenne!  Though the hemlock & placid blue look pretty fantastic too… who am I kidding?  I love all of theseView full post »

What do I wear? 2014 Summer, Part 1 {Sierra Vista, AZ Family, Maternity, & Newborn Photographer}

Since temps have hit triple digits all week, I think we can officially say that summer has arrived!  While the heat seems unbearable, the longer days mean we can easily take advantage of the beautiful light and the cooling sunsets on weeknights!  There is plenty of time to get home from work, spruce up in a great outfit, and get to a gorgeous location for your shoot.  To help you with your outfit ideas, here is the first part of our “What do I wear?” series for this summer!  IView full post »

Sweet, Cuddly, Bundle of Love {Sierra Vista, AZ Newborn Photographer}

I have had the honor and privilege to capture this amazing family since my first year in business!  We at first bonded over our New Mexico  commonalities, and then Army life, and have become great friends.  I am truly blown away at how God has used my business to bless me in who I am meeting and who has become part of our life! I was lucky enough to get to announce their pregnancy back in October.  In case you missed it, here is what we did to share their great news. Fast forward to lastView full post »
