Glowing | Surprise, Arizona Maternity Photographer

I love traditions. This couple has a tradition of getting photos taken every year for their anniversary. Now, I really like that tradition! Their dog, Cooper, even gets to join in. And this year, Jenn happens to be pregnant. She only has twenty-some days left. How Ah-Mazing does she look?!

We met for a quick mini session at the ranch. It was EXPLODING with green stuff! At one point I may have squealed a little as we caught golden hour at the perfect time. Cooper was joined in my excitement with all the new smells and sights. He was all over the place!

Jenn and Trevor, thank you so much for a fun and quick session. I can't believe we were able to go to three spots in 35 minutes. I think that's a record for me. You were so amazing to work with and are the cutest couple ever. Congratulations! You are going to be parents soon!!! Enjoy every waking moment. Lots of love,

beauty | phoenix arizona newborn photographer

I pulled up to the address my GPS took me to, not sure if I was at the right location. I spent weeks prior planning for this session trying to come up with sets that would fit their style and this lifestyle-meets-posed newborn session. As I sat there, I was contemplating if I brought the right things, if the light would be what I needed, how the baby would sleep, and just how the session would go. My OCD causes me to do this anyways, but I had more time to think sitting in my car.

Once I figured out I was at the right place, I walked in to find the cutest and most perfectly decorated house with the most amazing light. Then, as soon as I laid eyes on sweet baby Eva, I was in heaven. I couldn't wait to get out my camera.

She slept so well for us and we were able to get so much done. We did a lot of posing but also got some pics in her adorable nursery with a special friend, too! I didn't want to put my camera away, but didn't wait to over extend my stay as they did just have a brand new baby.

I am so incredibly thankful this session was a gift a very special person bought this family. What a perfect gift. 

Thank you, {H-O} family for allowing me to snuggle your precious gift. You have a beauty on your hands. And thank you for your amazing hospitality and for the super delicious pineapple water! You both were such great assistants and I couldn't have done this session without your help. Lots of love,
