Christmas Tree Lights {Sierra Vista, AZ Family Photographer}

A few years ago when my first child was little, I saw a picture online of a baby under a tree sleeping.  I absolutely LOVED that image and instantly set off to try and make one for myself!  I absolutely loved the images and continue to attempt them every year at Christmas.  As my children get older, they are a getting quite snug under that tree, and they are less cooperative (it was much easier when I rocked them to sleep and laid them there!).  However, I want to keep catching the magic thatView full post »

Beautifully Blended {Sierra Vista Family Photographer}

I was lucky enough to meet this wonderful family back in February to capture little {M}’s newborn pictures.  I had so much fun with them and was absolutely thrilled when they called for a family session!  All of the kids would be together and we had a brief window to capture some amazing images!  We had to work around the monsoon rains, work schedules, and summer fun.  We only had to reschedule for rain once! We ended up doing a very early morning session to get beautiful light and toView full post »

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 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!
