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.
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
Meet the Bowne Family! As Flagstaff Family Photographer’s we just love summertime and meeting new clients! The Browne Family was so much fun to photograph! We met at Aspen Corner to capture their family in the beautiful Aspen groves, ferns and wildflowers. Their 3 year old Margaret loved climbing on big rocks and logs. Cooper, only 4 months old, enjoyed being held and smiling at the camera. Copper was one of the best babies I have ever worked with!
We asked the Browne’s a few questions about their family, one in particular really made me laugh:
Share with us any funny or memorable moments of your children:
When we brought Cooper home form the hospital and Mike was putting Margaret to bed she turned to him and said, “Daddy, meeting your baby brother is hard work. I’m really tired.” Good thing she loves her baby brother more than anything else.
What are Margaret & Cooper’s favorite activities or hobbies?
riding bikes, playing with her “babies”, arts/crafts, being outside, and reading.
What are your favorite family vacation spots?
Camping on the North Rim, going to Lake Powell, traveling to Colorado.
Thank you to the Browne family, it was wonderful to meet and work with you. We can’t wait until next time! ~Kristen
As Flagstaff family photographers we love capturing important moments in life, a first birthday is definitely a exciting one. Kenzi came into the studio this month for her First Birthday Baby Cakes Session! What’s that you ask? It’s a session, especially for one year olds where we offer them their own birthday cupcake. It’s usually a big, sloppy messy mush, but little Kenzi ate her her special cake, created by Dawn at Cupcake & CO, very delicately:) It was the cutest thing to watch her carefully eat the sugar icing off the top of her giant cupcake. This little one was nothing short of an angel in front of the camera and we loved having her here. Happy First Birthday sweet Kenzi!
One of the reasons that we love living in Flagstaff is because of it’s very distinctive four seasons. I can think of very few cities that boast a definite Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall and we love photographing in all of them. Every year we call a last minute, “Snow Day” mini session day during or after one of our first snow storms of the winter season. I named it “Snow Day” not because of my husband’s employer, New Belgium Brewing Company, which has a delightful beer named Snow Day, but because when I grew up in Georgia, we would anticipate a “Snow Day” the way some out here wish for winning the lottery. When it snowed, we were EXCITED! Stores, employers and schools would close and all of us would be out in the two inches of snow that might accumulate with our sleds and in enough gear to suit a Rocky Mountain blizzard. When I think back, it was hilarious. Still to this day, on our first snow storm, I still get that excited! And, Kristen and I had a blast! Thanks to all the families that came out and braved the sometimes heavily falling snow, we hope you get that same feeling of excitement when it snows as we do! We’re looking forward to a real White Christmas! Happy Holidays everyone! ~ Melissa
