All Because Two People fell in LOVE!

20121227 Anna-70I am always so honored when I am asked to photograph people – their families, their moments, their smiles, their stories!  This session was no different and I was humbled to have the opportunity to capture this families love and four generations of being together.  Four generations because a man and a woman made the choice so many years ago to be together creating generations of LOVE!    Anna2

It’s hard to believe that so many things can come out of that one moment in time.    Thank you Anna for the chance to capture a piece of your family’s history – your families’ forever.Anna1

A Day in the Desert

Today I spent the day with a friend driving through the desert searching for pictures.  We spent over 6 hours in the car and did over 300 miles, froze our fingers and noses but here are some of the images I came home with.  These kinds of days are also one of my 2013 goals, more landscapes to photograph and who knows maybe I will find new locations for sessions!20130113 Adventure Day

Jayden turns ONE!

This is a year in the life of baby Jayden.  Such an awesome experience to watch him grow and go from mommy’s tummy to walking!  Here is just a peek at all the photos we took over the last year beginning with Sara’s maternity session!1

Amazing what a difference only a few months makes when everything they do is new and exciting! 2

And Jayden turns ONE!  So much fun.  I think we laughed the entire session as Jayden is full of personality and was a blast to watch while he dug into his cake. 3

This family was my first maternity session, my first newborn session, and my first cake smash.  I can say we had a lot of fun and did some learning along the way.  I can’t believe Jayden is ONE!  But here is his first year through my lens.  Thank you Sara and James for inviting me in to this special and dynamic time in your life.
