Alison's Senior Shoot & Family Photos

This weekend I headed to Sahuaro Ranch Park in Glendale for Alison's senior photos and a few shots with her family. If you're a photographer and haven't checked out Sahuaro Ranch Park...YOU SHOULD! There are lots of great backgrounds.

It was a pleasure working with you all!

Evan turns 1

The year came and went. I can’t believe my little boy is a year old! I officially have a toddler. We were so grateful to have had perfect weather for his party. Sunshine and 70! My good friend Elisa, the crafty owner of Sugar Bee Bungalow , created the most adorable decorations and delicious treat table to complete Evan’s owl themed party. We rented a bounce house for the kids and they all loved it (and even some of the parents as well)!

Thanks to everyone who came to celebrate Evan’s 1st birthday with us. And a HUGE thank you to the Sugar Bee Bungalow for taking an idea and making it everything I could imagine and more!

Gift bags for the kids

THE most AMAZING chocolate covered Oreos!

Owl cake pops

The birthday boy

With my big boy

He wasn't fond of the texture

I was shocked that he didn't tear into the cake. Just took a few bites and wanted the icing off his hands.

Blessing & Baptism

Last weekend I photographed a marriage blessing followed by a baptism. It was held at St. Paul's Catholic Church in Phoenix. It's such a nice church with beautiful stained glass.

My favorite line from the Father, "I never baptise babies with cold water!"

Proud God Parents

Sitting in the pew - Andrew looked so adorable in his baptism suit.

Nathaniel turns 1

Last weekend I photographed Nathaniel's 1st birthday party. It ended up being a chilly weekend but that didn't stop the party! The rented a bounce house that both kids and the adults enjoyed. It was my first time attempting to photograph while getting tossed around inside a bounce house.

My little one crawling around enjoying the party.

He tore the cake up!!!

Staying warm by the grill

If you know Christian and LuAnne you'll know how very fitting of a family photo this is....they are so much fun.

Happy 1st Birthday Nathaniel!

11 months!

I can't believe it but in under a month Evan will be turning ONE!!!! Where has the year gone?

Here are some photos we had taken over Christmas time while we were in Illinois visiting my family. We loved them so much we used them for his birthday invites. Stay tuned for birthday party photos towards the end of the month.

Again it's been quite some time since I've blogged so I thought I would catch up while the little guy is taking a nap! :)

Andrew & Family

We met back up with baby Andrew in November for a family/holiday shoot. We used the greenbelt near my house again.

Adam, Bailey, Quix & Cleo

My friend (and fellow photog) Bailey decided to swap photography services for a holiday shoot. We met at a green belt near our house which has provided to be a great backdrop. I took photos of Bailey, her (very tall) husband Adam and their beautiful Greyhounds. It's great to have met such good friends right down the road from us.
