April, Dave and Max came all the way from Maryland to celebrate Max’s first birthday! Family members from all over the country met them here so Max could celebrate with everyone he loves most. What was even more special is that they were able to celebrate in the same place that April and Dave got married years earlier, The Boulders Resort. Naturally, this is also where we captured their Scottsdale family photography.

I had so much fun walking around the resort with this family, learning all about their little guy Max and stopping at all of April’s favorite spots. We battled some wind and Max wasn’t always so sure about pictures, but everything turned out perfectly. The best part of their session was watching Max play with his parents. It was so sweet to see his face light up with kisses from mom and “tosses” from dad.

Thank you so much Dave, April and Max for including me in this special celebration for your family! Here’s a glimpse at their Scottsdale family photography:

Talissa, Patrick, and Ashton were really excited to welcome their baby girl and asked if we could capture their Scottsdale maternity session in Gainey Ranch. They spend a lot of time there as a family so it was really important to them to capture these special portraits in this spot! Their furry family member, Lucy, came along too!

When Patrick and Talissa came in for their studio consultation months before, Ashton was unable to come with them. Their session was so fun because I got to meet him for the first time and see what a charismatic kid he is! I can honestly say I’ve never had another kid be as interested as he was in the session; he even assisted me when he wasn’t in pictures! It was such a blast and I felt so excited for his little sister to have such a great big brother!

Thank you so much to Ashton, Talissa and Patrick for meeting me for your Scottsdale maternity session! Here are a few of their portraits:

I would love to capture your family’s Scottsdale maternity session. Let’s chat!

Mila Turns One! Mila Turns One!

I’ve been looking forward to sweet Mila coming into the studio for her first birthday! Mila is one of my little Baby’s First Year clients, who has basically grown up in front of my camera! Over the months, I’ve seen her gorgeous head of hair grow and grow. Some babies are bald or have spots of growing hair, but adorable Mila has always had the most beautiful locks!

Mila’s one year session was adorable, but not in the way that you might expect. She was really unsure of her cake and it took a lot of coaxing for her to try a bite. After tasting the cake and not loving it, her parents decided she’s more like her mom instead of dad, who LOVES sweets.

Thank you so much to Nancy, Dave and Mila for having me as your photographer this past year. It’s been such a pleasure watching your little baby grow up; I can’t wait to see what a beautiful girl she grows to be! Here’s a little peek at Mila’s Scottsdale baby photography session:

Let’s start by saying the obvious: I love cute chunky babies. This is why I have such a sweet spot for little Lawson Duke. He is the definition of an adorable, roll-y baby! If you too love chunksters, I give you permission to skip the rest of my post and peek at his Scottsdale baby portraits!

Yet again, it is bittersweet to see another one of my little newborn babies grow to be a spunky little one. It’s amazing to me how this little guy grew in his momma’s belly, curled up into one of my arms as a newborn and is now a chunk sitting on his own! Lawson is definitely one of my most hip little clients and you can follow his little adventures on his Instagram account!

It’s been such a joy to witness his babyhood at the studio and I am so bummed that he has recently moved to San Francisco. But, I’m excited for his momma’s next steps in her career! Thankfully, I can follow along their new adventures on Instagram! Thank you Lauren, LD and Lawson for letting me be a part of your story; I can’t wait to see what’s in store for your little guy!

I have been so excited to share Jack’s Phoenix baby photography session! The last time I saw Jack was when he was a teeny little newborn. I can’t believe how much his features have changed in 6 short months.

This little dude is OBSESSED with Winnie the Pooh so Mom came with Pooh and friends in hand! These stuffed animals turned out to be the cutest props, especially the classic set of Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger and Piglet together. It is so cute to see the way Jack’s face lights up when he gets a sight of his Pooh bear. Thankfully, he has an equal love for Pooh songs and videos, which came in handy when he wasn’t interested in pictures anymore!

Thank you Stephanie and Jack for coming to visit me; I am so excited I get to watch your little guy grow up!
