She is ENGAGED!!  I met with her and her very awesome fiance, Torrin, at Starbucks to brainstorm some ideas to make a perfect engagement session for them.  We wanted to tryView 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!

I love most every moment of being a photographer!  I love my clients and getting to meet new people.  I love working hard to get that perfect smile that will make a mama’s heart sing.  I love it!  There is also a creative side of me hungry for knowledge and experiences and trying something new.  That is just what we did!  Way back at the end of July, a small group of colleagues here in town got together and with the incredible help and coordination of Megan Smitty.    She found thisView full post »
