Are you ready for today’s dose of cuteness? Well I think Hank did a fantastic job showing off his adorable little personality. I feel like I always say the same thing but it is amazing to me how much babies grow in their first 6 months! We had the pleasure of photographing Hank as a newborn so I was so excited when he return with his beautiful mama for a session. Hope ya’ll enjoy!

It’s an amazing thing to watch a family grow and we’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of this little angel since Stephanie and Eugene’s maternity session this summer.   The couple decided to wait to find out the gender and we were so excited to hear they had a beautiful little boy!  Big (canine) brother Roscoe was very excited too!   Kristen and I are so excited for you two and all the wonderful adventures to come being a parent.  Congrats Stephanie and Eugene!  ~ Melissa

Congratulations to the Meiners!  Baby Hank is the perfect addition to their beautiful family!  The Meiners chose to do our two location session.  We were able to capture some family photographs downtown Flagstaff, utilizing the colorful graffiti art.  The second half of the session was done in our studio so we could get those precious close ups of baby Hank.  Congratulations, baby Hank is amazing! ~Kristen

In the time between the harsh early summer winds, and the aspen changing colors, lies the sweet spot of Northern Arizona’s weather that we call monsoon season.  Each year I hold my breath as the sunflowers seem to climb out of the earth and burst into a brilliant display.  It has to be one of the most miraculous displays of flowers anywhere in the world.  The day that I met this sweet family we were also blessed with big, billowy, monsoon clouds that provided creamy ambient filtered light.  It was perfection.  Brittany and Matt moved to Northern Arizona about a year ago, and this was the first time they had seen the sunflower fields.  It was cool to see their reaction when I drove them up to this beautiful location.

Baby William was perfect and seemed to enjoy his first experience as a super model, both inside in a studio setting and outside in the great wide open.  He never cried and fell fast asleep once he got comfortable.  Congratulations Brittany and Matt!  Your beautiful baby boy is a sweetheart! ~ Melissa

Last week we had the honor of meeting this little angel, Elsa Margaret.  We loved getting to know this little slice of heaven and she definitely stole both of our hearts.  Congratulations Becky and Brian on your newest family member!

I met Amee right before I was married in 2007.  When I met her, as a client in her hair salon, I knew that she was destined to be my friend too.  She’s the kind of person who seeps sweetness and kindness and I fell in love with her.   Over the years I photographed her and Thomas’s wedding (where I think I cried through the whole ceremony it was so sweet and heartfelt). the whole Byer’s clan and more recently, a touching way to announce to Amee and Thomas’s family and friends they they were having a baby.  Being that I love these two so much, I was really looking forward to this session.  The little boy is very blessed to have chosen Amee and Thomas as his parents.  They are already so filled with so much love for this little boy and everyone in their families is eagerly awaiting his arrival this Saturday!  Congrats Amee and Thomas, I cannot wait to meet him too! ~ Melissa
