Xane- Phoenix family portrait photographer

All I can say is Xane is a natural in front of the camera! He was nothing but smiles and cute expressions for this photo shoot honoring his first birthday.

Sunshine and smiles- family portraits Chandler, Arizona

Campbell’s smile lights up my camera. I was lucky enough to hold Campbell when she was just hours old and now she is a smart and adorable little girl.

Lifestyle family photography- Chandler, Arizona

Tumbleweed Park in Chandler was the perfect spot for family pictures. The adorable and happy Ian, along with his parents Joanna and Rob were wonderful to photograph. It was fun to follow Ian around with my camera as he explored the park with his mom and dad.

Chase- documentary style kids portraits

Chase is seriously too cute for words and he looked particularly adorable in his sweater vest. Of course I have a soft spot for little ginger boys. Chase was a toddler on the go for our little portrait session and it was my job just to keep up with him. It was fun to be able to photograph Chase and his mom, Meredith, was has known my husband since they were both babies.

Back to School

Washington PostAP Environmental Science at Basis.

I had a great day of shooting for the Washington Post last week. I worked with reporter Nick Anderson on a story about different charter schools in Arizona. I traveled with him to three different schools- Basis Scottsdale, NFL Yet and Children First Academy the nations largest school for homeless children. Each school had its own philosophy and energy. At Basis in Scottsdale I photographed an algebra class full of nine year olds! NFL Yet is a school that received a $1 million grant from the NFL when the Super Bowl played n Phoenix in 1996. It was fun to be around so many great kids and motivated passionate teachers. Shooting for the Washington Post is special for me because it is the newspaper I grew up reading and my parents still get it delivered everyday.
