Stolworthy Family {Photographers in Arizona}

This is such a fun family and it’s been so fun photographing them every year! They always color coordinate perfectly!  There are 5 siblings, 2 married-ins, and 3 kiddos (one in a belly in this pic!)  Beautiful family!!

Shawn Linam {Gilbert Photographers-Headshots}

Shawn needed some new headshots because she is an engineer/rocket scientist extraordinaire!  She has been involved in projects outside of work that encourage girls to get involved in STEM careers…currently a male dominated career.  She needed some images because there have been so many articles written about her!  I always love having strong, smart, down to earth women in front of my camera!

River {Senior Pictures AZ}

It has been a while since I have blogged…but not without good reason!  I had a baby and have been so busy with her, my two other kids, and Arizona’s busy season for photography that blogging got pushed to the back burner!

But here is the beautiful River!  I had so much fun photographing her again.  You can see the other session we did together in 2015 HERE…. one of my favorites! River, you are always so sweet and kind and I know you have a bright future ahead of you!

Dallas & Emily- 3 Year Anniversary

Dallas and Emily are always a blast to get in front of my camera!  And I love that we do an anniversary session every year!  If you want to look back through the years, check it out:

Their Engagement
Their Wedding
1 year anniversary
2 year anniversary
This year we decided to do something different for their session and we did a fun lifestyle session in their home!  Emily decorated her home so cute, so it was a great background for their photoshoot! Emily is the owner of Queen B Home and she hand makes wooden signs.  You have to check out her site if your looking for some cute decorations!

Monica & Ben- Windmill Winery {Phoenix Wedding Photographer}

Monica and Ben’s wedding day at the Lakehouse at Windmill Winery was a gorgeous mix of lace, cowboy boots and cotton (yes, cotton!) and it was absolute beautiful!  Even though it was a little warm for this October wedding, nothing, not even the heat, could wipe the smiles off of Monica and Ben when they were together.  The love and care they had for each other was made obvious just by looking at their faces, and I loved being able to capture it! (Also, a fun little tid bit… the last time I photographed Monica, she was a senior in high school!  I love that she thought of me to capture her wedding 5 years later!)

While everyone was admiring how stunning Monica looked while she was walking down the aisle, I turned around to see Ben’s reaction.  This is the first time he was seeing Monica on their wedding day and I noticed that his smile was different than what it was when the bridal party, who walked before Monica, were walking down the aisle.  As soon as he saw his beautiful bride his smile grew huge.  From a soft, no teeth, smile to a big, showing teeth, eyes lighting up smile.  It was then that I could see his love for Monica written all over his face.  And it was equally awesome, when I turned back around to capture Monica walking toward Ben, and see her smile was just as big!  Scroll down to see!
