Corporate Headshots | Phoenix, Surprise, Peoria, Glendale, AZ Corporate Headshots

I am incredibly thankful to receive my first opportunity to do corporate headshots. I am a natural light photographer but with this session, I was able to use artificial lighting. A national business whose corporate office is in downtown Phoenix held their biannual conference at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort where we were able to photograph almost their entire company. What a wonderful group of people!

Cacti, beautiful views, oversized Christmas ornaments, suspenders...Christmas fun in the desert | Scottsdale, AZ Family Photographer

I can't believe I first met this little guy when he was only five months old and barely sitting up. He was all smiles that first session and three sessions later, he has definitely made me work for them. I absolutely love his personality. I can just see his brain working as he's very intuitive.

For this session, the mom had a vision of Christmas in the desert. We went to a new location for me in North Scottsdale, which was just surrounded by beauty! Not only were the views amazing but the sky was a strange overcast pinkish color making for perfect light. The session was spent chasing little E around and letting him play with the ornaments his mom brought along with them. Genius!

This was such a fun styled session in the desert! Seriously...suspenders, golf hat, vintage suitcases (a friend let me borrow...THANK YOU!), huge sahuaro cacti, mountain views, a beautiful family, it was just divine!

Thank you, D family for trusting me once again with your little guy. I feel so special that I get to be a part of his childhood. I absolutely love seeing what kind of expressions he's going to give me. Can't wait for his second birthday pics! Okay, I can, because he's growing way too fast!

Family of 10 in the desert | Buckeye, AZ Family Photographer

When I get contacted to do an extended family, I always get nervous. I don't know if it's because there are so many people or if I will be able to stay focused and get all the shots they want, or plainly because I have less control and we all know I an issue with that. This family put all of my fears aside as soon as I met them. They all looked amazing and were ready to have fun.

Grandma and Grandpa moved to Arizona not long ago so everyone came to visit for Thanksgiving from Washington! The weather was extremely good to us. I loved how we were able to get the mountainous background to show off the desert but also, find some lush green grass. Verrado is always good for both!

Here is one of my all time favorite photos and my favorite from this session here. 

Thank you so much S Family for letting loose and even breaking out some dance moves. It was a pleasure getting to photograph your gorgeous family!
