Haylee Grace: Gilbert Newborn Photographer

Prepare yourself for an epic post because this might be my favorite newborn session to date and I just COULD NOT narrow down my favorite images!!

Miss Haylee Grace rocked this session like no babies business;)She was born to be posed, tehe.

Enjoy this 9lb beauty:

I almost always prefer daddy-daughter images as moody black and whites…gah!!

Although my actual favorite from this session of Michael and his girl is in color, down below.

This left one is my favorite daddy-daughter shot from the session!

Colleen asked that we incorporated their wedding rings for an image and I’m pretty pleased with how we did so:)

Little smiler!

This is my favorite family shot–If it were mine I’d blow it up on a big print or canvas for the nursery!! #hint

Her little feet kill me!


Most mamas don’t want to be photographed the week after they give birth but I don’t really listen to them because THIS MAGIC happens because of all the love that is present…it takes a lot to trust me with my camera, but mamas, it’s so worth it. Your memory will unfortunately fade and your babe will grow and we need images to prove that this happened.Sweet dreamer.

Michael and Colleen, thanks for inviting me into your space and letting me snuggle with your girl…have more babies!! ha:)

Shores Family Session: Phoenix Family Photographer

 I don’t often blog family sessions these days as my emphasis is newborn photography, but I had so many darn favorites from the Shores family session that I had to share with you!! Brooke is a dear friend of mine and one of my safe people…when I think of the last year, I can recall that she was one of the first people I contacted when I lost my temper with Liv and felt bad, when I thought I was miscarrying Locke and when I wanted to have a girls day at the Montelucia. She prays with me, brings me delicious food and is full of compassion for others. It only makes sense that her little family would be THIS precious too!!! Brooke, I’m so grateful for your friendship, you truly are a gift to me and a true beauty.

My favorite family shot!

Gah, love this sibling shot!!



Brooke and John just celebrated their tenth anniversary…love seeing my friends still so in love.

Blurry, messy and happy!!!

Milk & Cookies.

And just like that our girl turned three…I cannot believe it.

Overnight it seems like we gained a little girl and lost a toddler. The way she talks and jokes now, her sense of humor and sensitivity, her curiosity and her creativity. We love all of her, even the stinky, sassy part of her, and are so grateful that God continues to entrust us with parenting her.

We celebrated the kick-off of her birthday week with some oreos and milk, and I la-la-love the way these images reflect her personality!!

That little finger scraping the frosting off kills me!!! How is that act SO instinctual?!!

Liv has been really into tattoos this year…especially Disney princess tattoos;)

Cap: Scottsdale Newborn Photographer

 I looooooved my time with this sweet little family! If I’m honest I was a little nervous about how photographing a two year old, 14mo old AND newborn would go but they were great!! And we had the most beautiful light and subjects to work with…Enjoy the Cook family!!

Stunning, right?!!!

These outtakes are some of my favorites to date!! Haha, just love toddlers.This one is my favorite though…even if it’s a little blurry, it’s so happy!!This is probably my favorite of Cap by himself.I wanted to steal Kennedy…such a sweet and joyful little toddler. And just look at that RED hair! Gah.
