Holiday 2016 | Paluga Family

After last week falling through due to rain and other unforeseen circumstances and then this week having yet another cloudy and sprinkley day we were determined to brave it and see what happened. Luckily it only barely sprinkled on us and we were able to get some family shots! The last time I saw the P family little miss L wasn't yet earthside. So it was awesome to catch up and see everyone again. 
Someone is proving they're a great big sister!
If this tree isn't downright magical I don't know what is! 
Happy holidays to the P family & thank you once again for the honor of capturing your family!

Holiday 2016 | Gikling Family

Flexibility and staying as creative as possible during a shoot is sometimes not only nice, refreshing, etc., but necessary. When working with two little dolls under the age of 3 it definitely keeps everyone pulling out all the stops! Being silly, singing songs, letting mom play photographer, and even letting big sister have a go at pressing the button -- whatever it takes. But in the end all I hope is that I can capture some moments that will be cherished and leave families with memories they can look back on with fondness and a smile. 
Is everyone looking at the camera? No. Is it posed and perfect? No. But that's just fine because its perfectly imperfect. 
Thank you to the Gikling family for this morning adventure in the desert. I hope that I was able to capture memories and smiles that you will love for years to come.

Happy Birthday to my Hannah ♥

Happy 12th birthday to my first baby and photography business namesake! I can't believe that (nearly) 12 years have passed since she made her way into my world. She has taught me a lot about myself and unconditional love. She may be getting older, slower, and more stubborn but she can still play like a puppy when she wants and loves going on walks. 

Love you Hannah (aka Nana, Banana, Banana Bean, Bean, Nanni, Bossy Britches)

Maternity + Family | Amanda

This past weekend I had the pleasure of meeting up with Amanda, Jose and their son to do maternity photos for their second baby. I am so honored that they not only chose me to capture this special time in their lives (for the second time! See our shoot of now soon to be big brother's maternity session here) but they drove all the way up from Tucson for me to do it! 
Sometimes the "out takes" are my favorite.
My assistant photographer.
This boy is all motion! Definitely kept me on my toes.
Thank you again Amanda & Jose for making the journey up for me to do these for you! I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed taking them.
