One of our favorite places to photograph familes in Flagstaff is at Aspen Corner. The gorgeous place is just off Snowbowl Road on your way to the ski hill, and looks great in any season. And summer, well, summer is our favorite three months in Flagstaff when the lupines and sunflowers really pop in photographs. Being a Flagstaff family photographer really is fun, especially when your backdrops are so gorgeous.
We’ve loved getting to know the Martinez family over the years, and especially watching this little munchkin, Harper, grow. She loved being outside and playing in the outdoors. We’ve found that kids really relax when their outside and it’s a great time to plan for family photos. Thanks for trusting us with your memories! Can’t wait to see you again!
We do almost all our newborn sessions in our downtown studio and we love it when we get to meet new families and watch them grow. As Flagstaff newborn photographers, it’s such a blessing. Little Paige was welcomed by her family this January and we were so delighted to be able to meet her! This little angel slept through most of our session, and was such a gracious model for us. We loved getting to know her family and look forward to watching her grow up! Welcome little one!
We’ve been anxiously awaiting this little man’s arrival ever since Erin told us that he was on the way. We love watching our client’s families grow! It seems like yesterday that we did Harper’s newborn session and now she’s the proud and ever devoted big sister! We can’t wait to watch you grow up sweet Royce! Welcome to the world!
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!
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’ve been waiting a long time to meet this little angel, about five years.
You see, the moment when TC and Carrie started dating, we all knew they’d get married, and we all hoped they’d one day have a baby. So, I was thrilled when they announced to Grant and I this past winter that they were expecting. And, I was over the moon when I found out it was a little girl!
I did a lot of thinking about what I’d say to her when I met little Miss Maggie, but as I expected, when I did have the chance to hold her in my arms I forgot everything. In fact, the love that filled my heart at the very moment seemed SO big that it seemed to consume the whole world.
So I wrote down a few very important things.
I’m your Aunt Melissa. And no, we’re not related by blood, but I’ve found out over the years that families transcend the traditional boundaries. And I love you just as much as family.
I promise to sing you John Denver songs when you’re crying. I suspect that my off key voice will stop you and make you wonder what on earth could create such a sound and John Denver lyrics, let’s face it, are some of the sweetest, loving and hopeful words ever. It’s my secret weapon for crying babies.
I promise to buy you ice cream on your first day of school for the rest of your life. As a matter of fact, I promise to buy you ice cream anytime you want it. And, I’ll even take you out of school occasionally so we can do this (shhhh…don’t tell your parents!). Some of my best memories are sitting at over a bowl of ice cream and telling my sister and mom the happenings of my day. I hope we can have some of those special moments too.
I promise to share with you some of my treasured secrets: my mom’s recipe for chocolate chip-pecan-oatmeal cookies, how to call in chickadees to your bird feeder, and how to say “Go Dawgs” at just the right time to make your Mom and Dad laugh.
I promise to support you in whatever brings you joy and happiness. Especially if it includes going to the University of Georgia. 🙂
I promise to let you cry on my shoulder when a someone breaks your heart. And I promise that you’ll find your perfect someone one day, and I’ll remind you of this in your dating years.
I promise to tell you funny and sweet stories about your Mom and Dad, how they met and fell in love. I’ll also tell you about how they were so happy when they learned about you. I’ll also tell you of how they both cried the day they met you; they thought you were the sweetest and most beautiful thing they had ever seen. And, they were right.
Welcome to the world my sweet girl, I can hardly wait for the days to come!
With love always ~ “Auntie” Melissa
