I have at long last moved my Live Loved Photography blog over to my business website.  You can now find all my recent work over at

These are my cousins.  Drew+Teagan+Ace+Andie…pure beauty inside and out.   I knew when I pressed the shutter, this would be a favorite image of mine.  Big brother pointing at big sister…so precious.  And of course with family there always tends to be an over share.

I love brand new sibling images.  Ace is almost 2 years old and he will be a great big brother.


The way they are looking at one another on that hand holding image just kills me.  She was WIDE awake for sibling shots and I am glad because I wouldn’t have wanted to miss those two sweetly gazing at each other (and trust me, you can’t plan that with a newborn!)

I was pretty excited when I noticed farm land less than a block from their home.  Ace’s hair is simply magnificent and I am thinking baby sister may get the same gift as well.

The spurs were Andie’s grandma’s when she was a child.



Love that gorgeous, dark hair.  Such a little beauty.

Just want to smooch all over those dainty baby details.   Love you already Andie girl.

I can’t believe this little man is one year already!   We did newborn/one year tire pictures for big brother Caleb and thought it would be fun to try a different variation for baby brother “Cub”.  I love it when a plan comes together.

Love this baby boy…his big brother…this family.  I love my job.


One year old Hunter was an absolute doll and such a precious and tolerant little guy considering we did his session in PHOENIX, in AUGUST at SUNRISE.  It was SO hot and surprisingly humid that day.  I am not much of a sweater but that day I was dripping.  And just look at him…took it all in stride.   Babies are remarkable.

I absolutely have to give a shout out to this dad.  Coincidentally, Mike was one of the firefighters on the scene the day of the great SCOPE incident with Tori.  One of the scariest days of my life.  He remembered the situation well and that was in November of 2011 (see that blog post here:   I am so thankful for HEROES like Mike.  I will forever be grateful for the help and support we received that day.

Some of my very favorite people in the world…
