It’s my privilege to capture who you are at this moment: your dreams, your passions, your personal style.
Relaxed ~ I don’t want to be stressed or rushed and I don’t want my clients to feel that way either! No worries! I don’t wear a watch and don’t check the time during a photo shoot. We’re done when I say we’re done or you’re tired of having my camera in your face! Portrait sessions range from 30 minutes to over 2 hours, everyone has different needs but the results will be amazing no matter what!
Fun ~ Well, of course! Did you know it would be fun? Who would want to have pictures taken if it wasn’t going to be fun? I love taking teens and seniors out for a magazine style photo shoot! You’re the star and I plan to treat you that way from beginning to end! I love to joke with kids and play! If kids (or parents) need a break, we take one. Not only will the final portraits be keepsakes, but my goal is to have the entire experience be memorable!
Colorful ~ I love color! Black & white images are amazing, but having true colorful images that will stand out in your home is a priority!
So mostly the business is “me” but I have some awesome support from my family as well as an amazing assistant! Why do we specialize in senior portraits? Because they’re fun! Yes, you heard me correctly…teenagers are awesome!!! We love being out on location with teens and their families, showcasing your individuality, capturing moments with your BFF, helping young teens & tweens gain confidence, and bringing the whole family together for a much-needed photo shoot!
We’d love to offer you a stunning, one-of-a-kind experience for your senior pictures that will be easy and fun for you, and stress-free for mom! Let us help you with every step from choosing the best outfits, coordinating hair and makeup, scoping out gorgeous locations, and making sure you look absolutely amazing in your senior pictures!
The East Valley is filled with tons of great locations for senior pictures here in the beautiful Arizona desert! We have funky downtown urban areas, lots of textures, beautiful green areas, and vintage locations just to name a few! This is one of the many reasons I love working teens! We have the ability to move around a lot and get a wide variety from your senior photo shoot!
Hair and make up services are also available, for those that prefer professional services. Your session should be fun and relaxed, so there won’t be any rushing to get you in and out in an hour. You’ll want to share these images and display them in your home, so there are a wide variety of gorgeous prints, metals, collages, and tons of products you’ll be able to see at your pre-session consultation.
Now, let’s have some fun!
A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME AND MY FAMILY
We don’t have family pictures taken as often as I’d like because well, I’m always behind the camera!!! But my kids do cooperate (if bribed) several times a year. While neither is overly joyed about their birthday pictures in the spring, they both LOVE October when I “force” them to do Halloween pictures! I get awesome pictures, they get to go all out with their costumes, it’s super fun!
And that last picture in the set? That’s me with my buddy, Tigger. Yes, we’re a huge Disney-loving family. Disneyland is our favorite vacation spot and we made sure that both of our kids celebrated their first Christmas at Disneyland. Do they remember? Of course not, but I sure do! Let me tell you, it is completely awesome when Mickey Mouse sits down on the floor of his screening room to hold your baby. It is amazing when your kids love to play peekaboo with the characters and Goofy sits down at your table. And when your 5 and 7 year olds are personally invited by Cinderella and Mickey Mouse for a Disneyland vacation, well, yes we do go those lengths to make memories in our family. Letters came personalized to our kids, complete with a Disneyland stamp and return address, as well as t-shirts from their favorite characters. Then of course they had to “ask” us if it was ok to go…you know, since they were personally invited to Disneyland! Then the year Stanley (our Elf on a Shelf) gave them a special Disneyland vacation just before Christmas, and we had to frantically pack to get there to use the “voucher” that he left for our family and claim our annual passes. I suppose as a family we might be just a little crazy, but that’s what makes us fun! So if some of that crazy spills over into your photo shoot, at least you’ve been warned!
