When mama walked in the door with this little pumpkin, I nearly melted into a puddle as I gazed at this little beauty.  And if I wasn’t in love already, she slept through the whole session and then rewarded me with the sweetest eyes for our moon shot.  So precious.  I had the blessing of photographying her older brother’s newborn session (Eddie), two years ago so it was so nice to spend some time chat time with mama S.   I love my job.  Love it!

A few vendors you may be interested in from this session:

Both of the crowns (pink and gold and the santa crown) were purchased by mom from:

The santa hat used was purchased by mom from:

The Christmas Cocoon and striped Christmas hat are mine and came from:

Some of my very favorite people in the world!   We did a quick shoot for Christmas up on the hill at Papa and Sweetie’s.

My beautiful niece Karsyn – 9 years old.  She looks so much like her daddy but her expressions are all mama.
My Cooper – 4 years of age.  Love the lower left shot.  Typical toddler.

Shaking all their silliness out?   Don’t think it worked.  🙂


I love it when babies are born around Christmas.  Adds such a sweetness to the holiday (and give me opportunities for Christmas props too which is fun!)   Ryder, like older brother Gunner, was a little darling with a mind of his own.  He REALLY loved his pacy and he was wishing I would just include the pacifier in the session.

Congratulations C + L and G on your amazing and precious Christmas gift.



This is Maddy and her horse Larry.   Beautiful combination of child with her beloved animal friend.

Maddy loves her Ford truck!  (I was pretty impressed with it too!)   She posed herself in the bed of her truck and I thought it too adorable.

The AZ desert really makes a beautiful backdrop for celebrating families.
Gus was able to make an appearance in this year’s photo session too!

That is an arm she will be clinging to her whole life.

And Maddy especially wanted this shot…(we had to recreate it from a baby shot we took of her).
That is a grab your heart type of grin right there.

 (No worries, Maddy’s Daddy was in the not heavily trafficked street as well blocking any potential traffic for her short ride).


So glad I got to see you all this year!!!!
