We first met Katy and Bradley when they came to Flagstaff for their first anniversary in 2015. It’s hard to believe that was five years ago! Bradley had just started to work for the Four Seasons Resort and soon after our session he and Katy were transferred to beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico. From there he was transferred to the big city of Las Vegas this year at about the same time little miss Emma was born. We were lucky enough that Bradley’s mom, Brenda and her husband, Tom were able to make it for the session and even Bradley’s sister, Kelly, was able to come meet her new niece all the way from New York! We love family gatherings like this as they celebrate the love the ties families together. It was so much fun meeting everyone, especially beautiful and sweet Emma.
We hope to see you all again soon!
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!
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
There is nothing more awesome than to watch a family grow. Back in 2009 I got to photograph these two as they joined their lives together. It was one of those weddings where everyone was tearing up at the scenerity of their vows. I dare you to look at their ceremony photos and not want to cry! When Amee called me this past December and told me she was expecting, my eyes got all teared up again. Amee and Thomas are going to make the most perfect parents and I absolutely can’t wait to meet the little Byers baby coming this August. I also loved how they decided to announce the arrival of their sweet baby with the below card. So unique and sweet, just like Amee and Thomas. Congrats you two! I can’t wait to meet your little angel! ~ Melissa
Baby Paige was 12 days old when her parents, Natalie and Mike, and her canine brother and sister, Quito and Kaya, came to the studio for her newborn photos. Little Paige was not interested in sleeping, but rather, this little new soul wanted to know about everything going on around her. And, Quito and Kaya amazed me. They were very concerned about her, and her every little squeak caused them to come to her side. They comforted her just by licking her head or her toes. What a great gift to grow up with two sweet pups like this! Natalie and Mike were so sweet and loving to all of them, and my heart was warmed by how complete this ‘pack’ had become with the addition of sweet Paige. Welcome to the world little Paige! ~ Melissa
