Susie, Ted, & Molly

What a beautiful family this is! Six month old Molly is very easy-going and was curious about the fake grass (I love it: always green, no grass stains, and no bugs!). She knew there was something not quite right about the stuff. Susie and Ted did a great job of playing with her and had a lot of fun reading to her and holding her in the air.

Tracy & Tristan

Newborn, baby Tristan is just 6 weeks old. Mom, Tracy, is so relaxed for a new mother and seemed very at ease with the baby. We took some beautiful breastfeeding photos that show the connection between her and the baby.

Dad, Frank, was also very sweet with Tristan and I was surprised to learn that we went to high school together! Small world!

Teresa, Joe, and Sophie

The cliche, "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree" certainly applies to this family. Baby Sophie is just as cute and goofy as her parents, laughs are endless as are the silly expressions. Teresa and Joe are adorable with Sophie and obviously have fun with her. She is such a mellow and easy-going baby, but at the same time, is full of joy. The images of Teresa and Sophie laughing together crack me up! I hope to do her one year old photos too!

Olivia & Isabella

Olivia, Isabella, their mom (Leda), two puppies, and I had a great time with this photo shoot. The girls ran and played with the puppies and had a blast on the monkey bars. Shoots like these remind me of the energy, magic, and joy of childhood. These are the feelings I strive to show in my child portraits. Leda even tried the monkey bars and climbed a tree for a few shots! I think the girls enjoyed seeing their mom play.

Megan, Bob, & Madeline

Madeline, her parents, and I went to the zoo for her toddler portraits. She is such a beautiful, sweet, and inquisitive little girl (look at those big blue eyes!). There were many animals out at that time, but I think the giraffes were among her favorites. I had a great time photographing this loving family.

Darlene & Nick

Darlene and Nick are getting married in June in Tucson. Since Nick is a huge wildcat fan, we decided to do the photos inside McKale and on the
U of A campus. We were lucky there was a game that day letting out just as we arrived! Congratulations Darlene & Nick, I'm looking forward to doing your wedding photography!

I had a wonderful time taking these portraits of Suzanne. She is full of laughter and an artist in every sense of the word. We went downtown at dusk which helped achieve the artsy look she wanted. She is excited to use the images on her new business cards.
