This past week I got the chance to photograph two of my dearest friends, Jeanine and Stu.  These two are an absolute joy to be around; they are funny, sweet, loving and kind.  They love their fur-babies just as I love mine and their laughter and smiles will always have a way of making any day brighter.  I was delighted to find out that Jeanine’s parents, George and Martha, would be joining us for the shoot.  Too often, I hear from parents of adult children…”I don’t want my photo taken…there’s no need…”  I happen to think images of an adult with their parents are just as sweet as when they were holding their infant decades before.  In fact, I think it’s almost even more precious.  The years, experiences, love and life have a way of deepening bonds.  I adore these photos of Jeanine and her parents, and I know, she’s going to love them even more in 20 years.

We can’t believe that little Kensie is Four months old!  It seems like yesterday that we were at Flagstaff Medical Center waiting for her arrival.  We always love using props in baby session and we adore this piece of luggage.  Mom, Kristen, found this piece of luggage in an antique shop before she was married and decided to use it as a theme for Kensie’s photo sessions in her first year.  Kristen and Adam took this luggage on their honeymoon, so it’s not only super cute, but ultra sentimental.  We can’t wait to see you at your six month shoot little angel!

One of the best things about being a High School Senior Photographer in Flagstaff and Sedona is meeting such wonderful and talented young people.  Fiona is graduating from Flagstaff High School next May.  This young lady has quite the list of accomplishments, many of them centered around her violin talents.  She’s been playing since the age of three and hopes to continue for the rest of her life.  For some of the photos I asked her to play a song.  I have to tell you, hearing those beautiful strings take a life of their own under her talented guidance, while standing underneath a stand of magical aspens…well…it was plain enchanting.  I had to catch my breath at the beauty of the notes, played with such mastery.  Afterwards I asked her what she had played.  Her response?  “Warm up scales”.  I laughed at how even the warm up scales sounds magical in the forest.  It was such a delight to meet this young lady and I’m looking forward to following her career at New York University.   Congratulations Fiona!  We can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!

Melissa and I had the pleasure of photographing the Smith Families annual family portrait.  The family spends a good portion of the summer at their beautiful home in Forest Highlands, perfect time and location for their family portraits.  The Smith’s children love playing at the park outside of their home so it was only natural to capture them in their favorite spot. The beautiful pond, covered bridge, golf course, and beautiful family made it pretty easy for us to capture fantastic images.

It is always a true delight every year to photograph the Brown Family.  As a photographer, it is so fun to see and capture how much the kids change and grow over just one year!  This year we added Derrick’s parents and sisters family to the session so we could get a large family photo.  The Brown’s timed the beautiful yellow wildflowers and sunflowers just right!  As you can see this session was blessed with an explosion of color!  Thank you to the Brown and McChesney’s for having fun with us in the sunflower field!  ~Kristen

Kristen and I photographed Stephanie and Eugene’s wedding in gorgeous Lake Tahoe three years ago at the Zephyr Cove Resort.   We were amazed then, at the magnitude of how much this couple adored each other.  They are one of those couples that by just being around them, you leave feeling surrounded by love.  When Stephanie contacted us about doing her maternity session, we were ecstatic!  What a lucky and blessed little soul to be born to these sweet and devoted parents.  To add an element of surprise, they have decided to wait to find out the gender of the baby.  We can’t wait to find out too!  Steph and Eugene, congratulations!  You’re going to be two of the most amazing parents ever and we’re so blessed to be a small part of that journey.
