The whole package

These are our former neighbors. They set the bar pretty high as far as neighbors go. And even though they are no longer our neighbors, they have remained our great great friends. My kids adore their kids, they are fun to go on vacation with, they light off firecrackers in the middle of the street on New Years Eve, they baby sit for us, they help us fix the brakes in our cars, they hike with us, they dine with us, they go to church with us, they laugh with us. They are the whole package. And we love them!

Senior Portraits and best hair. 2013

Normally I shoot families and young children, so it was such a nice and refreshing change to photograph a high school senior. And one that was so sweet as this one was. I’m envious of her because this is such an exciting time of life to be in. Your whole future is ahead of you, you can be ANYTHING you want to be. I can’t wait to see where the future takes her, I know it will be great! Here are some photos from our time together in downtown Phoenix.

A lot of family, a LOT of love

This family is an extended family that consisted of first time grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, great aunts, great uncles and cousins. I came to their home this weekend to document meeting the first baby and it was so moving and fun to see a family so in love. They were the kind of family that made me want to stay over for Thanksgiving dinner, they were all just so welcoming. I loved how everyone doted on this sweet girl. And rightfully so, she was completely adorable! I’m so glad I got to be there to document it for them. Here are a few shots from the day:

Walk N Roll 2012

Right before Christmas I photographed the 2012 Walk N Roll annual event. It is an event to raise money for SMA, Spinal Muscular Atrophy. You can read more about SMA here: http://www.curesma.org/. Or for a more personal experience, you can read my friend Cassie’s experience and stories here: http://everydaychildhood.com/. SMA is such a devastating disease and when you see it first hand it just breaks your heart. I pray that one day there will be a cure. You know when you day dream about winning the lottery? You start giving money away in your mind? Well, SMA and Breast Cancer research would be the two places I would donate first. No parent should ever have to watch their child live and die with this. You can learn more or donate at the Cure SMA website. Here are just a few pictures from the event.
