I met Haylea in a local photography group when I was still living in Tucson. She and I became fast friends and I consider her one of my best friends! I really LOVE photographing other photographers, photographer families are just naturals in front of the camera. I can such minimal directing, if any at all. I don't really do much directing in my sessions anyway, I kind of just plop people in a field and tell them to interact with each other, but R. Family just made it so easy. I highly recommend checking out some of Hayley's gorgeous work on her website I hope when I am in Tucson later this year I can get them in front of my camera again.

I told you I was going to get caught up!! So many blogs!! I am so excited that I finished editing this wedding WAY ahead of schedule and that this adorable little couple's images are being sent to them tomorrow!! For now though, I would love to share with you a small preview of their beautiful wedding up in Phoenix Arizona. I don't normally take weddings, but I do take a few select weddings a year. More specifically, if the clients and I get along great and we just know we have to work with each other, I will take the wedding :)
Trinitie and Evan got married up in Phoenix Arizona. I am not going to lie.. it was a hot one!! But I wouldn't expect anything less from Phoenix!. I had such a fun time with this group and I am in love with their images! I hope they love them too!!! There were so many personal touches in this wedding, down to their pins on the bouquets and boutonnieres.
I am hoping to book a few weddings in Colorado next year, if you know anyone that is having a small intimate and unique ceremony I would love to speak with them!!
You might remember my GORGEOUS Maternity session from a few weeks ago.. Well Ireland decided to make her debut in the weeeee hours of August 11th, weighing a perfect 7lbs 2oz. Mom had a pretty intense labor but worked through each and every contraction with the help of her amazing husband and wonderful Doula. Ashlee worked so hard during her labor, probably walked a mile back and forth at the birth center. She moved into and out of the birth tub before settling into the bed. Lynn her doula (https://www.facebook.com/loveandlabor) was with her every second. When Ashlee was doubting she could do it, Lynn was there to give her positive affirmations, rub her back and hold her when she needed it. In the end Ashlee had the birth she imagined and had an amazingly supportive birth team, I can't wait to share her entire birth story with the world! For now enjoy this preview. <3
After we went to Disneyland we decided to head down to San Diego for a day of sandy wet fun before we headed back to Tucson. All 3 girls really love being at the beach and playing in the sand and water.. I however have learned that the adult version of Jessica doesn't enjoy sand AT ALL. But I did only spend about 15 minutes with my camera and spent the rest of our few hours with my kids and husband. I am trying to find that special balance of documenting/storytelling and actually being in the moment with my family. It's definitely not as easy as I thought it would be.
Last week we went on a small vacation with Luke's parents and Sister to Disneyland. We had a pretty magical time and we can't wait to go back again. Here is a very small glimpse into our time over in The Most Magical Place on Earth.
