Survey results are in! Thank you to everyone who provided their input and helped in planning this year’s fall mini sessions! I cannot wait for cooler weather, beautiful locations and photographing returning client friends and meeting new ones before I begin my maternity leave 🙂 Because I will be having a baby beginning of December, these mini sessions will be the only ones I will be offering this year. I will also have limited availability for regular one hour sessions if you are interested in those but contact me asap before I am completely booked!

What is a mini session?

For those of you who haven’t had a mini session before, a mini session is a shortened version of a regular family photography session. Basically it allows us to get a few great family shots of your entire family and then spend a little time getting breakout shots of just the kids, a few individual shots and perhaps a few candid’s. It is ideal for families who simply want some updated family shots for holiday cards, frames, and Facebook. Mini sessions move quickly and are scheduled back to back so it’s SUPER IMPORTANT you arrive a few minutes early (5-10) so that you and your family are ready to go.

What you get:
* 20-30 minute sessions (depending on chosen location)
*10-15 edited High Resolution Images given through an online gallery (PASS)
* Turn around time for sessions is 2 weeks

Cost is $150 plus tax

I love when clients come to me for their maternity session and newborn session shortly after that. It’s really amazing to meet the babies that have been keeping their loved ones waiting for 9+ months. Baby Lilianna’s session was held at Cheryl & Nick’s home in Ahwatukee and was a mix of lifestyle and traditional poses. Lilianna was such a sweetie and a dream to work with. She was attentive to everyone and everything going on, surprisingly aware of everything considering she was only a week old!

Just look how precious she looked nestled in her parent’s arms 🙂

Great grandma was there and Cheryl requested to have some shots of Lilianna with her. Great grandma was so worried about having her wrinkled hands in the shots, thinking she’d look horrible in the photos. Oh Grandma! On the contrary, it was a great honor to capture every single wrinkle of yours. Because you know what? It is a privilege to make it to that age, a privilege many don’t get to have. What I would give for my own grandmothers to have met my babies.

Lifestyle sessions are a great way to document family interaction in a much more unposed, relaxed way.  Best of all, it can be done in the comfort of your own home!

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to be a part of an amazing styled shoot organized by Katrina Amburgey, Styled Shoots by the Amburgeys. As a part of my re-branding process for my business, I have made it a goal to be a part of a few styled shoots throughout the year in order to showcase the direction I’m going in terms of my photography style and really get the chance to document beautiful details. This photo shoot was a dream and really a combination of everything I love! Modern Southwestern details, touches of greens and blues, geometric patterns, succulents, and airplants against a beautiful desert background. The amazing The Paseo venue offers the best views of the Superstition Mountains and really tied the whole shoot together.

I had the pleasure of photographing Cheryl and Nick who were expecting their first baby. Cheryl went to high school with two of my sisters so we connected through them. Cheryl had a specific look she envisioned for her maternity photos so together we chose the ideal location, and she then ordered the perfect dress! We headed out to the Gilbert Riparian Preserve for some beautiful maternity photos at sunset.

Can I just say something about her boyfriend Nick? I mentioned this to Cheryl while I was editing (as if she didn’t already know haha) but you can just feel the love Nick has for her in the way he looks at her. It probably helps that Cheryl is absolutely gorgeous seeing her adorable baby bump just adds to the excitement and anticipation of soon welcoming a baby girl of their very own.Gilbert Riparian Maternity PhotographyP I N I T Can I just say something about her boyfriend Nick?

Lorin is a former coworker of my husband and now good friend, so I was thrilled when his wife Anna contacted me to shoot their maternity session. She wanted green, flowers, and a spring boho feel so I suggested we drive to Boyce Thompson Arboretum for a morning session. If you haven’t been, I suggest a day trip with your family- it’s really a great place! Maternity sessions are one of my favorites because I get to capture the anticipation, excitement, and so much love someone has for a little being they haven’t even met yet. Such a beautiful session and I’m glad to capture such an important time in their lives!
