Delaney & Sydney BFF Session

I loved photographing these girls…. BFF’s! We had to document their friendship since it was their last year of high school. When we started the shoot, they said they were really awkward in front of the camera when someone else is taking their picture. I’m pretty sure they couldn’t be more wrong! Look how cute and photogenic they are! I love it!

Braelyn & Lynn {Gilbert Headshots}

Oh how love photographing boss ladies! And these two were no exception! This mother and daughter duo is starting Thrive- a co-working space for women entrepreneurs! They are building a gorgeous building in Downtown Gilbert, which is where we took these headshots. I am SO excited for them and love seeing all that they are doing. You may recognize Braelyn (the daughter in this duo) because I have photographed her a few times before. I feel so honored that they keep coming back to me for all their photographic needs. I photographed her high school senior pics, her college senior pics, She even wrote some blog posts for me about College Life here and here, a sister’s shoot with her and her two sisters!

Also, they are going to be featured on the cover of a local magazine, be on the lookout for that!

Claudia & Gus- Royal Palms Wedding {Scottsdale Wedding Photographer}

Gus and Claudia had a sweet, simple and beautiful wedding at The Royal Palms Resort in Scottsdale. They were surrounded by their closest friends and family. This is Gus and Claudia’s second marriage so they wanted a small and intimate celebration! I loved meeting their family and documenting this special time in their lives!

Claudia’s grand daughter/flower girl is so cute.  I could tell they have a special relationship!

They chose to have their ceremony inside to stay out of the Arizona heat!  Their friends and family gathered around as they exchanged their vows and their rings.

Claudia and Gus, thank you for choosing me to document your gorgeous wedding day!

Bre {Gilbert Senior Photography}

How gorgeous is Bre?! We had such a fun senior shoot together and I love all her images! She was such a chill and sweet girl and I loved seeing her work the camera! One of the fun things about this session was when they came back in to view their portraits at their ordering session. Bre’s mom, grandma and great-grandma all came!! I loved meeting all of them. After they saw the slideshow of all of Bre’s pics, they all had tears in their eyes! Love it! They had such a hard time choosing their favorites, but they ones they chose were great ones!

2017-2018 Senior Rep Team!

I am SO SO SO excited to announce my 2017-2018 Senior Rep Team!!! These girls are awesome and amazing and I’m so glad to have each one be a part of the team. All of them fill out a Rep Team Application and then came in for a meeting/interview. After about 20 interviews, these 9 girls were selected and I’m so pumped about this year with them. So here is a little introduction of each girl with iPhone pics they sent to me!

Macy, Swetha, Shelby, Kaleigh, Adia, Alyssa, Tori, Kendall, Ariel.

After their interviews, I was in contact with their parents and I set up a time to go to their house and SURPRISE them and tell them they were chosen to be a Rep and officially hug and welcome them to the team! I also gave them a little goodie bag! Inside had a hand written note, plus a note welcoming them and inviting them to our first Meet & Greet where all the girls would meet each other for the first time.  They also got a journal & pencil and a fun stainless steal water bottle with my logo… you know… since they’re repping my business!

I’m so excited for this year with these girls!  Be on the look out for more of them!
