Two angels Attended


Family photo shoots are fun and stressful and exciting and crazy. 

And sometimes they are very sacred.

This family has experienced the loss of two sons, Steven and Jordan.

I felt them there.

A family of six that is now represented on earth by only four, continue on with grace, courage and love.

It was a joy and honor to capture the special bond of these loving parents for two adorable boys who are full of life and smiles and also reminisce about their two angels.

Thank you for a wonderful, special evening.




Mom and Dad brought these very special mementos for each of the angel boys.

A New Home For Rosie the English Bulldog{Arizona Pet Photographer}


Rosie has a new home.

What does her new family have to look forward to?

Well, isn’t it obvious?

The distinct under bite.

The impressive wrinkles.

A muscular frame.

The snozzle snorting.

The hanging jowls.

For just a moment I thought I was describing myself.

Anyway, let’s carry on.

I know she will be very happy where she is with her new human and canine family.

Rock on Rosie!



OH YES WE DID!  I couldn’t resist. 

Merry Christmas from Rosie.

Bug. {Arizona Portrait Photographer}


Often times the word bug has a negative connotation. 

“You’re bugging me.”

“Look at that gross bug.”

“Bed bugs.”

“That really bugs me.”

But sometimes, “Bug” is a term of endearment.

Like this sweet little girl who looks nothing like a gross bug.

And she doesn’t bug me. 

And there are no bed bugs involved.

Her parents have it as her pet name and is said with all the love in the world. 

And it runs in the family because they are called Daddy Bug and Mommy Bug.

No matter how you spell it or how you say it---





I love this little bug!

It takes a village {Arizona Family Photographer}


There is a saying that “It takes a village to raise a child.”

The addendum on the saying goes something like this: “It may also take a village to get a certain un-named two year old child to smile for family pictures. If the battle seems uncertain, secret weapons may be enlisted.”


Well. . . . . .



Thank you village (mom, dad, bro, assistants, squeaky toys etc.)  Thank you secret weapon!

Now I can’t stop smiling.  Love this adorable family!

5 Years and Counting. . .{Mesa, Gilbert, Higley, Chandler, Arizona Family Photographer}

5 Christmas Card seasons ago, this family accepted the invitation to be my guinea pigs in front of a new camera I didn’t know how to use. 


Due to tremendous luck, I accidentally captured some amazing shots and they decided to stick with me thru lots of learning, a camera upgrade, a few new lenses and a whole bunch of luck. 


This year they talked me into a new location which I am apparently the last to know about as it was very busy with several other photographers and sweet little families praying the rain would stay far away so their precious moments could be captured.


I got a few precious moments myself!


I am thankful for their friendship and their trust.


Can’t wait for year 6.


(Saving the main family ones for the Christmas Card reveal.)
