Stacy + Lindsay + Dash, Mini Documentary Session , Scottsdale, Phoenix, Arizona

 
 

Wow, I really haven't posted anything in a looong time - since June of last year! So sorry for being MIA, but I have a good excuse - I got pregnant, and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl! Her name is Penelope and she's the most amazing human being in the world.  I PROMISE I'll post some photos of her soon.  I can't wait for you all to meet her :)

Since Poppy (my daughter's nickname) has been born, I've been learning how to be a momma. I've really enjoyed my time with her, but I have to admit, I've been itching to get back to work! So, a few Sundays ago, I photographed a mini documentary session of another newly-minted family: Stacy, Lindsay, and their 4-month old boy, Dash. It was a quiet morning filled with tummy time, morning coffee in the backyard, family walks around the neighborhood, and lots of little hugs and kisses in between :) 

Lindsay and Stacy, thanks so much for letting me into your home to photograph your new family. I had a wonderful time getting to know all of you!

Chris + Rebecca + Audrey, Newborn Session, Scottsdale, Arizona

 
 

Hey guys!

Meet Rebecca, Chris + Aubrey.

Rebecca was my first, true Arizona friend. We met at my first post-college job, and I was instantly drawn to her.  She's super smart, incredibly gregarious, and hi-LAR-ious!! Plus she's got one hellava set of pipes - girl can SING! We've spent many a time cranking up the car radio and wailing to Madonna tunes while we worked together "in the field". Our friendship was forged and cemented over shared meals of convenience store hot dogs (okay, me more than her) and after-work Happy Hour drink specials.

Rebecca and I both left that first job, but have luckily remained friends. We have shared countless bottles of wine, evenings of karaoke, and side-splitting laughs. Over the years, we have had the opportunity to witness each other fall in love with our husbands, get married, buy our first homes, and (in the Rebecca and Chris' case) have babies. After knowing them for so many years, I was excited to document them as a new family. 

As parents, Rebecca and Chris are naturals.  They have really embraced their new roles as Mom and Dad.It was beautiful to watch them cuddle and snuggle with Audrey. I visited on a week day, so Chris only had a few minutes for photos before he had to leave for work. but I was able to capture some beautiful family portraits, and a couple of adorable father-daughter shots:

 
 
 
 
 
 

After Chris left for work, I got down to photographing baby Audrey, and she did not disappoint! She has the most mesmerizing eyes - 100% blue steel :) And she was so full of expression! At one point, her pacifier fell out of her mouth, and she let us know that she wasn't too happy about it. 

 

 

Uh, oh! Audrey lost her pacifier...

 
 
 

...and tears ensued :(

 
 

Pacifier in mouth = one content babe :)

 
 

New Mama love.

 
 

One of my last photos of Audrey before I left. Apparently, photoshoots are hard work!

 
 

Chris and Rebecca, I loved photographing your new family unit, and I look forward to years of many more family photo sessions!

Newborn Session, in Phoenix, Arizona

 
 

Is it just me, or is everyone popping out babies?!  My Facebook feed has been filled with pregnancy and newborn announcements lately. Not that I'm complaining - as you can probably guess, I loooove babies!

I photographed some first-time parents recently, who were blessed with a beautiful little boy. I knew it was going to be a good session, because when I asked Mama for a list of family members that were going to be part of the shoot, she listed herself, Dad, Little One, and their Fur Baby! I loved that she included their dog, because I'm a firm believer that pets are family members, too.  And, as you can see from the photos, their dog definitely just made the photos even better.

I hope you enjoy this beautiful newborn session as much as I do!

DAY IN THE LIFE IN TUCSON, ARIZONA

 
 

Hello friends! It's been a while since I've posted, because I've been SO BUSY lately photographing some amazing shoots! I'm finally starting to slow down, so I have some time to finally share all of them with you :) :

Here's a Day In The Life session that I photographed of a sweet little family in Tucson, AZ. It was a relaxing, chill day of pancakes, bubbles, and visiting horses at a nearby stable. Please check it out!

A Behind-The-Scenes look at my Day-In-The-Life Sessions

You probably aren't aware of it, but your life is full of beautiful moments. This applies to your day-to-day going-ons, but it especially applies to the life you have created with your family. Even the most mundane interactions between you and your child - such as brushing his hair or helping her put on her shoes - are precious, because, no matter what the action is, you are doing it with LOVE...and that's what makes it worth documenting. I'm incredibly drawn to this Family Love.  It's the reason why I specialize in documentary family photography, and why I'm so passionate about shooting Day In The Life sessions.  With every image I create, and every scene that I photograph, I strive to capture this Family Love.

However, as much as I tell people that their every day life is wonderful, and full of beauty, they just don't believe it.  So, I've been working on a project for the last several months that I hope will convince everyone that their seemingly boring, hum drum life is, in fact, simply amazing. With the help of some incredibly talented people, I now have a video that gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at my Day-In-The-Life sessions.  My hope is that, when you watch the video, you can see that Family Love is fun, beautiful, worth a closer look, and certainly worth documenting.

This video wouldn't have come to fruition without the amazing and talented Brandon Parigo of Wirken Films, who conducted my personal interview and produced the film. Anyone who is interested in doing a promo film should really check him out.  He's incredibly kind, patient, and engaging.  And his work is just breath-taking - I don't think I've ever watched one of his films without shedding a tear.  

The behind the scenes footage was filmed by a mentor and good friend, Jerry Verdin of FilmFotoFusion. Besides being incredibly talented, everyone at FilmFotoFusion has been so supportive, helpful, and encouraging of me and my photography career. I question whether I would even be a photographer if it wasn't for their support. Thanks guys,  I love you all!

I would also like to thank the Liss and Webb families for allowing me into their homes to document their personal lives. You guys are the stars of the video, and are what makes it so great to watch :)

Please check out my video and let me know what you think!

Webb Mini Day In The Life, San Diego, California

 
 

Here's another Mini Day In The Life session!  I spent one lively Sunday afternoon with the Webb family, aka "The Most Fun Family Ever," as little Ollie and Benny chased each other around the house, played with legos, ate lunch, and jumped on the bed.  Check out how fun this family is in the video below!

Thank you Jenny and Jeff for letting me into your home. I left wishing I was a member of your rambunctious, fun little family :)

Marisa + Owen + Scarlet, Mini Day In The Life Session, San Diego, California

 
 

I've talked to a number of people who have shown interest in my Day In The Life sessions, but, upon hearing that a session normally lasts, on average, 13 hours, are daunted by the prospect of being photographed for an entire day. Some people cherish their weekends because it's their only free time during the week to focus on personal hobbies or family time, and are consequently hesitant to commit an entire precious Saturday or Sunday to a photography session. I totally understand where my clients are coming from, so I tell them that I have a wonderful alternative: A Mini Day In The Life Session!

 My Mini Sessions are a maximum of four hours long, instead of a full-day commitment.  They can be scheduled for any time of the day, and I can be tailored to photograph important family events. For example, if evenings are a time of shared family rituals, I can document a nightly session of family dinner, bath time, then reading stories before bed. It's a short period of time to photograph, and won't require the sacrifice of a full day.

When I spoke to Marisa about her Mini Session with her kids Scarlet and Owen, she really wanted me to capture a typical Sunday morning. During their session, I photographed Scarlet and Owen as they "helped" Marisa make pancakes for breakfast, checked the progress of their garden, ran foot races in the backyard, and got dressed and ready for the rest of the day. I was able to capture all of these activities in the early morning, which left them free to spend the rest of their Sunday as they wished!

If you would like to check out what a Mini Session looks like, then I encourage you to watch their video below :)

Crawford Day In The Life, Scottsdale, Phoenix, Arizona

 
 

I've been photographing a lot of fun and active families lately - my most recent Day In The Life sessions have involved an outing at the Renaissance Faire, and documenting a skateboarding, bike-riding, soccer-playing, shot-putting family of six.  While these sessions are a BLAST to photograph, some of my most favorite sessions are the quieter ones that involve little else than hanging out at home.

At first glance, my session with the Crawford family seemed a typical weekday of walks around the neighborhood, nap time, and playing with toys. However, these every day events are filled with moments that Rachel and Stuart will remember most about their children - the way Colton hugs and kisses Stu before he goes to work, the way Rachel places a comforting hand on Colton as he falls asleep, and the way Ava is always ready to flash her adorable little smile at everyone. These seemingly small moments are so important, because they are really what makes up the fabric of their life, and some of the fondest memories of their babies. 

Stuart and Rachel, thank you so much for allowing me to hang out with your family. Your session was one of the sweetest sessions that I have photographed in a long time, and it was such a joy to document your life.

Sara + Avi + Avara, Day In The Life, Scottsdale, Phoenix, Arizona

 
 

My Day In The Life session with Sara, Avi, and their daughter Avara can be summed up in just one word - FUN!

I photographed their session at the Renaissance Faire in Gold Canyon, Arizona. It was a day filled with sunshine, laughter, and lots of sticky, yummy carnival snacks (funnel cake, anyone?). These mamas really put effort into making the family outing, not just a typical day at the fair, but a whole EXPERIENCE for their daughter. I documented Avara as she got her face painted with unicorns, pick out her own pink and purple princess gown, and practiced her juggling stick skills.  She collected tokens from pirates, got high five-ed by royalty, and earned her fairy wings. For a little girl deep in the unicorns-and-princesses phase of her life, it was a perfect day. And for parents who take genuine pleasure in seeing their daughter excited, happy, and having the time of her life, well...it was a pretty perfect day for them, too :)

Sara and Avi, thank you so much for allowing me to tag along and photograph your family for a day. You guys are incredible mamas :)

Scottsdale, Arizona Resort Wedding: Billy + Mary

 
16MarshWed_SQSP_112.jpg
 

I love, LOVE documenting stories! Usually I focus on documenting families, but occasionally I will photograph weddings, too. 

Mary and Billy were referred to me by a mutual friend. I liked them immediately upon meeting them - they are both so laid-back, kind, and fun-loving! At our initial meeting, they described what they wanted for their wedding - a casual, intimate, ceremony solely witnessed only by close family and friends. When they said they really wanted me to photograph their family and friends, and not worry so much about details (i.e., flowers, dress, shoes, etc.) I was really stoked, because I knew that I could focus on capturing the beautiful moments of their special day. 

Their ceremony took place on a tiny rooftop at Isabella's Kitchen, a fantastic Italian restaurant in North Scottsdale. With a guest list of about 15 people, it was a beautiful, small gathering of siblings, parents, in-laws and friends.  I was prepared for the intimacy of the ceremony but I wasn't prepared how emotional it was going to be. The love and appreciation that Billy and Mary share for each other, and for Mary's 7-year old son Dylan, was so obvious, and really beautiful to watch. I cried buckets the entire time I was photographing!

Congratulations to Billy, Mary, and Dylan on your new little family. You guys are really meant to be :)  I wish you the happiest of ever-afters!

Curtis Family Day In The Life Session, San Tan Valley, Phoenix, Arizona

 
 

My husband and I don't have any children. For a long time, I didn't want to have any, for all the typical reasons - I wanted to start a new career, I wanted to travel, I didn't think we could afford them, etc - but the main reason was I just didn't feel ready to start a family. Recently, however, my biological clock has started ticking, and now we are wondering what it would be like to have little muchachos of our own. The idea of raising kids still freaks me out, though.  The responsibility of raising children to be good, kind, responsible adults, that are also productive members of society, seems daunting. How do love them without spoiling them? Do you tell them to follow their dreams, even if you think their dreams kind of suck? As far as I can tell, these seemingly important questions don't have "right" answers.  If it's one thing I've learned from photographing Day In The Life sessions, it's that child-rearing is no JOKE. However, if you are successful, then it will be the most important, happy, and rewarding experience of your life.  And, from what I observed during their session, the Curtis family seem to be doing it RIGHT.

Amanda and Ryan have four, beautiful adopted children.  Ranging from ages 14 to less than a year old, each of their kids have incredibly different personalities, wants, and needs. Their oldest daughter is a typical teenager who wants her own phone and to always hang out with her friends.  Their youngest daughter is still in diapers and has to be put down for scheduled nap time. However, Amanda and Ryan seem to have managed to balance the formula for doling out equal amounts of love and discipline. They know how to laugh, play, and say "No!" to each of their kids.  And if it's one thing I learned from them, it's to PLAY WITH YOUR CHILDREN!  Ride bikes, skate board, dance around the kitchen, swing on swings, hug, tickle, and laugh with them. During their session, I realized that the Curtis children really valued all of the family time they spent together during their session, and kept saying that they had the best time that day.  They they will probably look back on the day as one of the most fun experiences of their childhood :)

Amanda and Ryan, thank you so much for allowing me to come into your home and photograph your family for the day.  I am in complete awe of the both of you as parents, and I hope that my husband and I will be able to raise children half as well as you are raising your own brood :)

Flores Day In The Life Session, Alhambra, Los Angeles, California

 
 

Last Spring, I shot a Day In The Life session of a family very dear to my heart. Emily is my oldest friend - she and I have known each other since we were 12 years old. We don't spend much time together nowadays, but, through Facebook, we've managed to keep up with each others lives. As great as it is, Facebook time just doesn't replace Face-to-Face time with loved ones, so I was thrilled when I got to do a session of Em's little family. It was wonderful to catch up with her, and finally meet her sweet, amazing husband Adam, and her fun, cute-as-can-be son, Chico.

Since their session, Emily and Adam have been blessed with a second son, Ozzy. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to meet him yet, but hopefully Em and Adam will let me do an updated Day In The Life session sometime so I can get photos of the entire family :) He does, however, make an appearance in photos their session :)

Em and Adam, thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to photograph your Day In The Life session! I love you all to bits!

Foundation First Workshop, Fearless Photographers, Forth Worth, Texas

 
(Photo by Joe Appel)

(Photo by Joe Appel)

 

I recently attended Foundation First (FF), a photojournalism workshop in Fort Worth, Texas. I’ve been home for several weeks now, and I’m still processing the whole experience. On paper, the workshop looks like this:

Day 1: Lessons
Day 2: Shooting Day at the Forth Worth Stock Show and Rodeo
Day 3: Photo Critique

In reality, though, it was so much more. It was spending three amazing days with thirteen other students trying to soak up all the knowledge that our mentors could offer, and three days of our mentors trying to drown us in all the knowledge they possibly could.  It was learning how to “see the light,” how to use continuous focus, how to express love in your photographs, how to be patient and wait for a moment to happen.  It was being brave enough to show my crappy images to my peers, so we could all learn how they could have been better photos. It was cheering for another student when he displayed an incredible, portfolio-worthy photo. It was exhilarating, embarrassing, exhausting and energizing. It was turning strangers into family. It was amazing, and I loved every minute of it. 

I know, know.  This description is a bit vague, a bit esoteric. So, I'll try to describe one learning moment of many that I had during FF, and hopefully it may give some insight into my entire experience.

On Shooting Day, we were assigned take photos of children getting their livestock ready for competition. After the first couple of hours of shooting, I hit a pretty low point. I was cold, wet, and frustrated that I wasn’t getting great images (I may have even broken down and sobbed a bit). It was during this time that one of my mentors Jan Garcia came over to talk to me about my progress.  He asked to see my photos (I cringed!). After reviewing my images, he gave me this piece of advice:

 "Stop seeing what your eyes see, and start seeing what your camera sees."

In other words, even though the rest of the world may see a scene like this:

I needed to start seeing the world like this:

The photos are so crazy different, right?! These photos made me "see the light." My entire weekend was made up of similar but equally enlightening "A-HA!" moments. It was wonderful :)

If you want an in-depth description of the FF experience then I highly encourage you to check out the blogs of my fellow peers Rob, Bridget, Juan Carlos, Melissa, Shelly, Katie, and Jennifer. They are able to convey the entire experience better that I can  -  trust me, I know, because I’ve been trying to write this damn blog entry for the last several weeks!

A big thank you to all of my FF mentors and staff:  Huy, Tyler, Joe, Craig, Kelly, Sherry, GulnaraSergio, Candice, Jan, and McKenzie. Every single one of you passed on some bit of knowledge to me, whether it was advice in photography, or just being inspired by the way you have chosen to life your life and pursue your work. I'm honored and grateful to have learned from you.

Piper + Quinn, Twin Newborn Session, Chandler, Phoenix, Arizona

 
 

I love my newborn clients.  While most new parents want the hyper-stylized, Anne Geddes-esque newborn photos that are all the rage right now (which, I have to admit, are really, really cute!), my clients prefer a more lifestyle photography approach. It’s certainly not a style for everyone, but my clients recognize that these photos can capture what a lot of studio photos often miss – their expressive, burgeoning personalities. If you are lucky enough, you may even get an amazing photo of your baby channeling her inner Gene Simmons :)

Jakeman Day In The Life Session, Cave Creek, Arizona

 
15JakemanSQ_079.jpg
 

Ah, the Jakemans.  It's hard for me to find the words to describe this session, because this family truly touched my heart. My Instagram Sneak Peek of their shoot indicated that the session revolved around the adoption of their second son. And, yes, for the most part, it did. But for this family, events like adopting a little boy isn't just one extraordinary gesture of love. For the Jakemans, adoption is actually an ordinary gesture, by one extraordinary family.

I met the Jakemans through the Phoenix Children's Hospital (PCH), where I've been volunteering as a photographer for the last several months. Many PCH patients spend a great deal of their lives in the hospital, and their parents often miss out on getting photos taken of their kids when they are young. PCH recognizes the importance of family photos in documenting a child's life, and asked me to shoot some sessions for these deserving families outside of the hospital. The Jakemans were one of the first families they put me in touch with. After meeting her on the phone, mom Alex and I set up a pre-shoot meeting at their house.

When I arrived at their house for the meeting, I wasn't there for more than a couple of minutes before Lily came out of her bedroom, walked straight up to me, and gave me a gigantic hug. I was immediately smitten with her, and amazed that she was so tall and looked so healthy and beautiful.  When she was just an infant, Lily was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease, a terminal illness that has a very short life expectancy.  Almost 5 years old, her illness has kept her in the hospital for a quarter of her life, for various treatments and surgeries.  She has been fed for the majority of her life via a tube in her stomach. Alex told me there were times when they didn't think she would live through some of her surgeries. Lately, however, her health has improved tremendously. In the past year, she has started to eat solid foods!

I can only imagine the toll that the stress and anxiety of nurturing a very ill child can have on a family. I personally don't think I could handle much more in my life. The Jakemans, though...they are cut from a different cloth. Not only did they have a second son (2 year old Aiden), but they also decided to foster a third child. Eli was a medically fragile infant that they began fostering when he was only 7 weeks old. After waiting for 2 long years, they were ready to finalize his adoption! To document this momentous occasion, we scheduled their Day In The Life session for Eli's adoption day.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I arrived at their house the morning of the shoot.  I assumed, with two medically fragile children, that health care was going to make up a large part of their day. And yes, while the children's illnesses were something that had to be addressed (particularly during meals), for the most part the Jakeman household isn't that different from any other family.  They still have structured mealtime, they love to play with puzzles and forts, they have tearful breakdowns, and occasionally fall and hit their head on furniture, etc. While the adoption was the main event of the day, what what really struck me during their shoot was the amount of love that Alex and her husband Shaun bestow upon each of their children. They are very affectionate - there were lots of hugs and and kisses for everyone. And they are incredibly fair. Two of their children have medical issues, but those two don't get more attention, or are treated with particular care. There isn't a particular "favorite" child.  It became very apparent to me during the shoot that Alex and Shaun truly love having children, and enjoy spending time with their kids. Alex even told me that they aren't done having children, and are considering the adoption of a fourth child!

Shaun and Alex, when you look at your Day In The Life photos, I hope you can see what amazing parents they are :) You are truly an inspiration!

Jeff + Meghan, Engagement Session, Phoenix, AZ

 
 

Hello and Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season.  I’m sooo stoked about 2016.  I started my photography business last year, and I’m so excited to seen how it’s going to grow and develop in 2016!  One of my business New Year’s resolutions is to blog more, because, let’s face it, this once every three months schedule that I’m currently doing is just NO BUENO. Being too busy to NOT post regularly is just not a good excuse. So, starting this week, I’m going to start blogging once a week.  THERE YOU GO -- I’ve just announced on the Internet, so it’s official, and now I have to keep to my promise.

(In case you were wondering, my other New Year's Resolutions are to:

--Learn how to parallel park LIKE A BOSS.
--Learn the lyrics to one rap song, so I can karaoke it LIKE A BOSS.)

I have been busy these past few months shooting a bunch of great sessions, which I’m so excited to show you! This particular one is one my all-time faves. Jeff and Meghan originally hail from Iowa, and moved to Phoenix a year or two ago. They are going to get married in Iowa later this year, but they wanted engagement photos that reflected the new desert environment that they have migrated to.  

I pretty much love all of my clients, but I especially enjoyed hanging out with Jeff and Meghan.  They are my version of DREAM clients – they were so friendly and funny, and very chill – they had no problem carpooling with me (a stranger!) all the way out to Apache Junction (30 minutes!) in unexpected traffic (make that 45 minutes!) for their session. I know they were nervous about doing the shoot, but they didn’t need to be, because they were so easy to photograph. They needed very little instruction. I would just say “stand over there and talk to each other, maybe hug and kiss” and all I had to do was stand back and watch their magic unfold. They are so adorable together- they enjoy making each other laugh, and have no problem with showing their love for each other. I could tell that they truly enjoy each other’s company :) I ended up with some beautiful shots from their session, many of which I posted below.

Jeff and Meghan, congratulations on your engagement.  Let’s grab that drink together soon so we can hang out some more!

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF THE ROSAUROS

 
 

Hello all!  It's been too long since my last blog post (over 3 months).  I've been REALLY busy since then -- traveling, attending photography workshops, and trying to keep up with my work load. Things have slowed down a little around here, so I thought I'd better take advantage of this lull in my schedule and update the blog with a new(ish) Day In The Life session. 

The Rosauros are great friends of mine. I was particularly excited to photograph their session, because I've known Candace for several years, and even helped throw her baby shower when she was pregnant with little Ronin. I shot their session on a typical Friday, which, for this family, consisted of visiting the zoo, shopping at Costco, and hitting up a food truck festival in downtown Gilbert.  Check out the video below for highlights of the session!

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF THE MORALES FAMILY

 
15MoralesDITL_SP_1231.jpg
 
 

A couple of weeks ago, I posted my first documentary portrait session, of an adorable little girl named Charlotte. I was really happy with the way the images I captured that day, so you can imagine how much I looked forward to photographing a full Day In The Life session with the rest of her family.

The Morales family opted to have me photograph their session on a week day, so only Charlotte and her mother Cassie were there when I arrived first thing on Friday morning because the rest of the family was already at school/work. However, the house didn't stay empty for long. Throughout the day, a steady stream of friends and family came to visit. Throughout the morning I photographed Charlotte while she jumped on a trampoline, pretended to cook meals, and played with Play-Doh with all of her visitors. Charlotte's two older sisters and dad came home late in the afternoon, and the Morales family spent the rest of the evening playing on the trampoline (I've never see a trampoline get so much play in my life!), sharing pizza, and challenging each other to Wii dance offs.  

As expected, I captured some amazing images of the Morales family that day.  You can see their Day In The Life session in the video below.  

As always, thanks for stopping by!
