It’s All About the Gowns

Christina’s Maternity Session Christina contacted me inquiring about a maternity session. She only wanted one thing, however, a dress toss. Christina had already had maternity photos done, but due to wind had ruined her dress toss. Being that this was likely her last pregnancy, it was the one photo she wanted to have. At first,…

Shelby: Class of 2019

University of Arizona Senior Session I love photographing University of Arizona grads, and Shelby’s grad session was nothing shy of awesome! I began our session incorporating some of the beautiful University of Arizona architecture. We started near the front of campus with a beautiful arched entryway covered in climbing greenery. It was breathtaking with Shelby…

Sunsets & Saguaros

A Couple’s Session at Sabino Canyon This lovely couple contacted me about getting couple’s photos just before they moved to Japan. They had never had professional photos taken, and wanted some to remember their time in the desert. They asked for a desert location with cactus, so I knew Sabino Canyon was where we needed…

Couple in the Wildflowers

A Desert Wildflower Session Spring is beautiful here in Tucson. It’s my favorite time of the year to shoot, because the desert is covered in brilliant colors and soft blooms. This year was even more breathtaking. Fall and winter were unseasonably wet, and delivered us a spring superbloom. I couldn’t wait to shoot so I…

The Gunter Family

Sequins & Snow The winter of 2019 was unusually cold and snowy for Tucson. For me, it was a huge blessing, because this Washington girl loves her snow. Unfortunately, Tucson snow days never last long once our warm desert sun is out. It breaks my heart, as a snow-lover and a photographer, because I love…

Newborn Baby Valentina

Fiesty in Floral Newborn sessions are my favorite type of session, but they are also the most difficult. My newborn sessions generally last four hours. In that time I am setting up and tearing several different sets. From tables to backdrops, bucket props to lighting, I want to give my clients a variety of poses….

Glamour in the Desert

Anica’s Maternity Session At the beginning of the year, I ran a small contest on Instagram for a free maternity session. Anica, a local blogger, was the winner. As she was coming close to her due date, we didn’t have much time. We were able to find a date both of us were available, but…

Brianna: Cienega Class of ’19

Beauty in an Urban Oasis This past school year Brianna contacted me about being one of my senior representatives. Although the school year had already began, she signed on and we did a fall model photoshoot. Since we were both local to the Vail area of Tucson I chose the Civano neighborhood for our photoshoot…

The Lindley Family

The family who drinks together… I always get a little nervous before meeting a client for the first time. What are they like? Will I meet their expectations? Can I capture them accurately? The Lindley family booked one of my holiday specials and we scheduled right before Christmas 2018–yes, I’m finally blogging about it now…

The Schlosser Family

Toddlers & Tickles at Tanque Verde I first met the Schlosser family last fall when they booked a fall mini-session with me on Mt. Lemmon. Sadly, on the way up to their shoot, their oldest got sick in the car. Poor little guy was not his usual happy, cheery, playful-self. We went ahead with the…
