Scottsdale Desert Family Arizona Photo

Boys in the Scottsdale Desert?

I just adore this family!! They have been with me since Stacey was a senior in high school. It has been such a joy watching Stacey and Jon get married and start their family! These boys are the sweetest little guys and a bit shy at first but they warm up every time I see them! The Scottsdale Desert may not have been the best place for these guys to run around but we managed to keep them out of the cacti… on the other, I hand found a couple!! YIKES. It was totally worth it for the afternoon golden hour glow tho. Stacey and Jon, It may be hard at times but you are doing great with the boys, keep doing what your doing. They are going to be amazing men one day!! Love you guys!Scottsdale Desert Family Boys Running Arizona PhotoScottsdale Desert Family Mom Dad Walking Arizona PhotoScottsdale Desert Family Boys mom Laughing Arizona PhotoScottsdale Desert Family Dad Boys Couple Arizona PhotoScottsdale Desert Family Boys Running Arizona PhotoScottsdale Desert Family Couple Arizona Photo

An Arizona Science Center Family Session

Marie and Dan have their hands full with this fast paced little princess. I met this family just over a year ago when Mila was born photographing her newborn session. I just love watching these young families grow up. So fun!! The Arizona Science Center is a such a great place to photograph kids as they are active and it has a lot of areas for them to play.Arizona Science Center Family Little Girl Phoenix PhotoArizona Science Center Family Mom Dad Girl Phoenix PhotoArizona Science Center Family Little Girl Phoenix PhotoArizona Science Center Family Couple Girl Phoenix PhotoArizona Science Center Family Couple Little GirlPhoenix PhotoArizona Science Center Family Girl Playing Phoenix PhotoArizona Science Center Family Girl Walking Red Fence Phoenix Photo

Shenandoah Mills Family Time

It’s hard to believe that I was privileged enough to meet these two over 8 years ago to photograph their wedding!! They are such a driven couple both when it comes to their family and work!! Parenting these twins, who are the busies little people I’ve seen in a long time, is no small task!! Vanessa and Scott, I am so proud of you two as you are doing the hard things and the best things for these babies!! It is such a joy to watch you two with them and see them grow :) They are so perfectly loved! Vanessa wanted a more rustic look for the photos so this old flour mill (originally built more than 100 years ago, was moved and reconstructed in Gilbert, Arizona) was the spot. Shenandoah Mills was the perfect place to come play with you all!! I haven’t run around that much since well… last years family session with you :) Love you guys bunches!!Shenandoah Mills Family Dad Son Gilbert Arizona PhotoShenandoah Mills Family Dad Daughter Gilbert Arizona PhotoShenandoah Mills Family Portrait Gilbert Arizona PhotoShenandoah Mills Family Brother Sister Twins Gilbert Arizona PhotoShenandoah Mills Family Mom Dad Little Girl Gilbert Arizona PhotoShenandoah Mills Family Mom Dad Romantic Couple Gilbert Arizona PhotoShenandoah Mills Family Boy Running Gilbert Arizona PhotoShenandoah Mills Family Brother Sister Hugging Gilbert Arizona PhotoShenandoah Mills Family Little Girl Sitting Gilbert Arizona PhotoShenandoah Mills Family Portrait Gilbert Arizona Photo

Downtown Phoenix Family Photos

This downtown phoenix family photo session was a bit bittersweet as I just love this family!! I have watched them grow into the family you see here for two years but let me tell you they are such wonderful people and incredible parents!! After being together for 12 years and married for 4 this little guy, Damian, came into their life and they have loved every minute of it!! Next week he will celebrate his first birthday {insert cheering, singing and celebration sounds}!!! The bittersweet comes because they just moved… out of state… and photographing every milestone of this adventure that makes me sad but at the same time I am so excited for them and the opportunity they have ahead of them. I really hope they can find a time just once a year to come back for their annual photos ;)

Dustin & Emili, keep doing what your doing! You two are awesome together and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for your family!! Love you guys!!Downtown Phoenix Family Mom Dad Boy Arizona PhotoDowntown Phoenix Family Boy Smiling Arizona PhotoDowntown Phoenix Family Mom Dad Boy Arizona PhotoDowntown Phoenix Family Boy Sitting Arizona PhotoDowntown Phoenix Family Boy Smiling Arizona PhotoDowntown Phoenix Family Mom Dad Arizona PhotoDowntown Phoenix Family Mom Boy Crawling Arizona PhotoDowntown Phoenix Family Boy Smiling Arizona PhotoDowntown Phoenix Family Mom Dad Boy Smiling Arizona PhotoDowntown Phoenix Family Boy Frowning Arizona PhotoIf you liked this session, you may like Damian’s Newborn Session or Emili and Dustin’s Maternity session at Venue at the Groves.
