Tiffany and Kurt

Tiffany called me up about 3 weeks ago and told me that she was having a small wedding at the Hilton Mesa on a Thursday and was hoping I could come out for a bit and take some pictures of her and Kurt. They have been engagement for awhile now but decided about 3 weeks ago that they just wanted to have a small wedding with their parents and do it fast... so yesterday I went out and met them to take pictures of the ceremony and some pictures of the two of them.

I was also able to see one of my favorite make up artists, Deanna, and a wonderful Minister Sandi Miller with Ever After Events. I love seeing vendors that I know and recommend!!

We had a blast and I love how all the pictures turned out! What a beautiful couple!

This is Tiffany's little girl, a complete doll!!

Brittany's Maternity Session

Brittany called me up a few weeks ago and said that she really wanted to do a maternity session. She told me that she had procrastinated in doing one and it had to be done soon because she was due in 1 week!!! So we set something up fast and last week had a lot of fun. She might even be in labor right now or already have a wonderful baby girl.

Below are some of my favorites... but a little pre-warning, there is a lot of skin showing so if you are sensitive don't keep looking.

Sophie Aviles

Last week I was able to photograph Sophie Aviles. I have now photographed the Aviles family engagement session, wedding, and their 1st and 2nd children. I love this family and enjoy hanging out with them each time.

Sophie was born about 7 weeks ago and looks just like her daddy! She is beautiful. At about 6 months we will do another session showing how much she has grown. Below are a few of my favorites.

I am still alive

It has been a few days since I posted and I just wanted to let everyone know I am alive. I will shortly have some amazing baby pictures and maternity pictures to post, but this week and weekend I have been very very busy with the studio. It is looking so wonderful and we are almost all moved in. Everything is pretty much in place except for the pictures on the wall. Isn't that funny, a photography studio with no photography? Well soon that will change and I can't wait!

Once it is totally ready I will post up pictures. We have been down with access to phone and email for a tiny bit, so please be patient while we answer emails and calls. We are getting everything set up again and will be running fully shortly!!

Fun Conference

Yesterday I had an awesome opportunity to go to a conference with 2 world renowned photographers, Jerry Ghionis and Bambi Cantrell. It was a jam packed day full of a ton of good information. Everytime I go to a conference I always learn some great things to take away and use on my shoots. Jerry and Bambi are both very talented and have won numerous awards; They both spoke in great length about advertising, marketing, creating assignments for your self at every wedding, posing techniques, album design, outsourcing, lighting techniques and so much more. (words excerpted from Jen Bowens Site:))

I was able to hang out with two great friends as well, Jennifer Bowen and Melissa Jill. I love having friends in the community that I can do these type of things with. There were a few other great friends there as well, but really a lot of faces that I didn't know.. which is kind of weird to me!

I was able to shoot a few shots and was so happy with what I got.

First, this was a posing technique that Bambi was sharing with us.. Mandy, Elizabeth, and Melissa were all a part of this.
This is Jerry in Action.
These are shots that I got, but Bambi and Jerry set them up; however, all day I was eying this location as an amazing place to shoot, so that was exciting. These turned out so great!

The girls are going to kill me for posting this, we all look horrible, but I wanted to put something up. This is Jen, me and Melissa.
