Joyce + Halle Families | 2016

Joyce + Halle Families | 2016

Meet the Halle and Joyce families. What wonderful people they are! We recently moved into a new neighbor hood and are lucky enough to call the Joyce's neighbors. I remember the first time I met Sarah she instantly made me feel welcome. She showed up on my door step with the biggest smile and invited the kids and I over for a play date. Her sister Helen's family was exactly the same way. Warm and kind. Both families are new to Arizona, so shooting at American Ranch was the perfect location for their session. Not only did it encompass the rustic beauty they have been enjoying since they moved here, but it is also where they are boarding the family horse. I have no doubt he will be making an appearance in future photos. They all adore him!

Big hugs to both of these sweet families!

Jazwinski Family | 2016 Fall Mini Session

Jazwinski Family | 2016 Fall Mini Session

You know what is so much fun? Watching a family grow up. This year marks the third year I have had the pleasure of photographing the Jazwinski's. Their playful and patient nature always makes their sessions lovely. It's no wonder I have come to look forward to getting an email from them each fall. I hope I have the honor of capturing their memories for many years to come.

Happy Valentine's Day from Baby Titus

Mama, watch out! You've got a heart breaker on your hands!

I cannot believe it has already been 7 months since Titus's newborn session. Where did the time go?! He's one of the happiest little guy's I've ever seen. He was smiles during his session, which made my face hurt from smiling back at him. I'd say that's a pretty good problem to have! I adore this little family for the fun time they have while I shoot. They play. They laugh. They love. And it shows!

And what gorgeous weather and lovely light we had! It is February, right?! Just another reason I love living in Arizona!
