It’s that time again! Can you believe it’s September already? Fall will be here before you know it. And while temperatures are still unbearably hot, it’s time to start planning and booking mini sessions. I am super excited to be offering these again this year and I will be giving you some new location options to switch things up a bit! First things first…

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 minute session
*10-15 edited High Resolution Images given through an online gallery (PASS)
* Turn around time for sessions is 2 weeks

Cost is $125 plus tax

Mini Sessions dates and locations


  1. Saturday October 21st, 4:00-5:30 p.m. at South Mountain (specific location to be determined)
    The desert is so lovely I wanted to include this option this year 🙂

All sessions are booked first come, first serve. I am doing sign ups a bit differently this year so hopefully the process goes as efficient and easy as possible. Please select your desired date and time on the calendar below. I will then send you an invoice for the $50 retainer fee and mini session agreement via email for you to fill out. Please note that mini sessions book very quickly. It is the busiest time of the year for photographers, especially in Arizona when the weather is ideal for photo shoots.

Note that mini sessions are up to 8 people max. There is simply not enough time to do an extended family session during mini shoots, but contact me and we can arrange a full session at another time if that is something you’re looking for. 🙂

*A session fee retainer payment of $50 is due at the time of booking and will be credited towards your balance. NOTE: this price is for your DEPOSIT only. Upon booking and paying your retainer, I will send you a contract/model release form for you to sign.
* Remaining balance will be due at the time of your session. You can pay the remaining balance with cash or check in person or card online through the invoice I send you.
* Session fee retainer is non-refundable but is transferable to another mini session date if available or a full session at another future date.

I am aware that life happens. In case of a family emergency or circumstances that will cause you to miss out on your mini session, contact me asap. We can always find another time or work something out! 🙂

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!
