One year with baby Charlotte

Phoenix newborn and family photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing Charlotte every few months for her first year. Starting with newborn pictures when she was just a few days old. When I came back 3 months later I couldn’t believe the difference with her chubby cheeks and delightful smile. It was really special to watch her grow. Each session I also took a couple photos of Charlotte in her handmade pale pink tutu and with every passing month the tutu fit her better and better.

Timeless Love in the Desert Botanical Garden

I think 50 years together certainly deserves a portrait session to commemorate the special milestone. I met this lovely couple at the Desert Botanical Garden for an afternoon of pictures. It was fun to document this moment in time for them and celebrate their long-lasting marriage!

Caitlin and Colin’s Scottsdale sunrise engagement session

Scottsdale wedding and engagement session photographer

Sunrise over Scottsdale was the backdrop for Caitlin and Collin’s recent summer morning engagement session. We virtually had the waterfront to ourselves as the sun rose orange and yellow. I loved meeting their dog who was happy to smile for the camera. Can’t wait for the wedding next year.

Gina and William’s Mountain Shadows Resort wedding

Mountain Shadows Resort wedding photographer

Gina and William’s Mountain Shadows Resort wedding was sleek, modern and elegant. Gina looked like a supermodel straight from the runway in a wedding gown that fit like a glove. They were married in an intimate ceremony on the balcony of the presidential suite at Mountain Shadows Resort with Camelback Mountain looming in the background. A warm and windy summer evening in Scottsdale without a cloud in the sky was just about perfect. Congratulations Gina and William!

Flagstaff wedding in the woods

Flagstaff wedding in the woods

The bride and groom removed their shoes and said their vows while barefoot in the woods. This Flagstaff, Arizona wedding was an intimate, bohemian and laid back affair. I love the bride’s dress and delicate flowers in her hair. The wedding reception was held at a private cabin in the forest north of Flagstaff. There was a masseuse for the guests to unwind during the party and a grove of hammocks to relax in. The cake topper was one of the cutest I have ever seen, an homage to the bride and groom and the groom’s beloved cat. Twinkle lights wrapped around the property lite up the night. Much love to W + S, I’m so happy to have been their to capture all the special moments and emotions of the wedding day.
