Cheryl, Natalie, & Emmy: Three Generations!

June 14, 2013 Children, Families

When I received a message from Natalie about taking some three generations pics while her mom was in town I was super stoked! Zoey and I did this on trips to visit my mom and then to visit my dad with local photographers in those areas so it really touched my heart that she wanted to do this as well! They were just so sweet and so fun to work with! And I must say I ADORE their color choicesRead More

Janina & Theo: Engagement Session

May 14, 2013 Couples, Families

There’s nothing yummier than some golden hour light in the desert!

Warm Days Are Here Again

January 26, 2013 Children

We’ve been having such a cold past few weeks that when it finally started to warm up I grabbed by husband and daughter and took some golden hour pictures of them! The Neve/hawk dress I put her in just looked perfect with the desert colors and the golden light that shined down on us! Looking up at the airplanes flying over us!
