Eva, One Year | Scottsdale, AZ Family Photographer

I can't believe Eva is ONE! I met her amazing parents through a couple who is very special to me. Last year, I had the opportunity to not only take their maternity photos but also Eva's newborn pictures. Some of her photos are still my favorites to date.

Before Eva's first birthday party {Minion Girl themed} with family and friends, we had a little session outside. It was HOT HOT HOT and late morning so we did it in phases with nice air conditioned breaks in between. The party was held at a house in Troon which had gorgeous views but not a lot of yard. We utilized every bit of shade we could starting with using a huge oleander bush as our first backdrop. Eva wasn't so sure about me (or maybe she was just a little toasty) but as soon as she saw her mama, she just LIT up. She kept clapping and dancing our whole time together. 

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands.

{H-O} family ;), thank you so much for including me for Eva's very first birthday party. It was done so well and everyone there had such a great time. You two are blessed with the sweetest, happiest, most adorable little girl. 

Lots of love, 

Gianna is TWO! | Scottsdale,AZ Photographer

Those curls. Swoon! 

August in Arizona is HOT but it's also when sweet Gianna celebrates her birthday. We decided to meet in the morning at DC Ranch in hopes of some shade. We found the shade but we still got a little sweaty. Gianna didn't seem to mind. She wasn't so sure of me at first but I think I won her over towards the end. She totally rocked it with THREE different outfits, too! Loved being able to capture how much joy she had when playing with her mommy.

Thank you Cristina, for meeting me in the heat of the summer for your precious little daughter's birthday photos. It was such a pleasure witnessing how amazing of a mama you are. Gianna is one blessed little girl! xoxo,
