Limerick, Ireland

At this time last week I was in Limerick, Ireland with 16 other people from CCV. We were there to visit and help our friends from Elevate. Since I’m not great with words, I’ll share my experience through my pictures. I will say, though, that I feel so blessed by the people that I encountered and the friendships that were made. God gives us opportunities all the time to meet new people and to step out of our comfort zone. I’m glad I took Him up on that opportunity.

Christmas Mini-sessions 2013, Phoenix, Arizona

Every year Christmas rolls around I get excited about doing my Christmas mini-sessions. I get to see kids that I photographed from the year before and meet new (and awesome) people. And this year I met some pretty amazing families. I love that I get to meet people that I would not normally encounter on a day-to-day basis. I also love that these are pictures that they will look back on when the kids are all grown. Hopefully some will end up hung on the walls, or made it into the family christmas card, or was gifted to a grandparent or loved one. Here are some of my favorites from this Christmas. The last one being of my three kiddos.:)

Seattle, Washington 2013

I recently returned from a trip from Seattle and visiting my dear friend Lisa. It was two years ago the last time we went (pictures from my last trip here). This time it was warm, sunny and beautiful. Which is ironic, because it was raining in Phoenix while we were there. It was so much fun visiting some of the same sights, and some new sights as well. Like Friday Harbor, Deception Pass and Alki Beach. But my favorite place is Pike Place Market. I love everything about it – the millions of people roaming around, the smell of fish, fruit and flowers, the random pets walking their owners and the view of the Puget Sound. This time while we were at Pike Place, we got coffee in the original Starbucks and had clam chowder on Post Alley. And bought a beautiful bouquet of flowers for only $5. It’s always fun to visit new places, especially when you grow up in one place all your life. Seattle does not disappoint and I can’t wait to take the kids there some day. Here are some random pictures of our trip:

Goodbye Seattle…

112 degrees and Cholla

I enjoy shooting small families, but I’ve come to love shooting families plus their extended families. I love seeing grandparents, aunts and uncles dote on their new little addition.  This little guy is so lucky to have so many people love him. And I’m happy I was able to capture just a snippet of that love. We battled the hottest day of the summer and an encounter with a jumping cactus. But through it all they were trooopers. Here are just a few pictures of our time together.
