Flagstaff Baby Wearing Mom {Flagstaff Family of 4}

Flagstaff Baby Wearing Mom {Flagstaff Family of 4}

Our town is so beautiful, year round! After the spring flowers and the leaves have changed, winter comes and the beauty stays! This was a fun session before the snow came.

I have photographed this family several times and love it every time. This mom has been baby wearing her youngest since he was born, how sweet and comfy! Here is the family at another baby wearing session and here is the 1st session we all did together.

And now I get to see the big brother skiing up at Snowbowl too! I love our small town.

Extra Special Little One! (Flagstaff Special Care Nursery Photographer}

This little guy and his mom were chosen by the staff at Flagstaff Medical Center’s Special Care Nursery to do a complimentary photo session with me! The SCN is in the process of updating the art on the walls at the SCN. I was able to meet up with this amazing mom and her son, who spent some time after birth in the SCN, and we did a fun photo session. I loved getting to know this mom and her story! This is her 1st son and they had a rough start but he is doing great now. A canvas display of this cutie and his mom will soon be hanging in the SCN right here in Flagstaff! You can see and example of what it will look like below.

She is sitting up! Family of 4 {Flagstaff baby photography}

It is such a compliment to get to photograph a family over and over again. This family is extra special to me, since I have gotten to photograph both girl’s 1st years of life! We are at the youngest’s sitting up session now, and she sure is full of smiles! And her big sister sure can make her giggle. We had a great time getting them in such fun clothes and laughing it up. And a game of peek a boo is always a a treat!Flagstaff lifestyle photographerFlagstaff lifestyle photographer peek a booFlagstaff lifestyle photographer peek a booflagstaff in home family photographerreed-grayce-6-months-old-39flagstaff baby smiles photographerflagstaff mother daughter photographer

Fall Beauty and giggles! {Flagstaff, AZ Family Photographer}

Fall Beauty and giggles! {Flagstaff, AZ Family Photographer}

I met this sweet mom many years ago when we both joined a group to train for the crazy Imogene Race in Colorado- a 17 mile race up and over a big mountain pass between Ouray and Telluride! As you can see here her kids are a bit younger than mine, so she was pushing a stroller while we were training, but I was not! Well come race time, I wish I had been training with a stroller too! We both survived and now she is an awesome neighbor as well. These guys were sweet and smiley and I loved seeing them all! Click here to see these cuties from there last session a few years ago, and see how much they have changed!

Some recent words of wisdom from a wonderful photography conference {Flagstaff Family Photography}

Some recent words of wisdom from a wonderful photography conference {Flagstaff Family Photography}

Well it is always fun to get out of town, laugh your head off with friends and be totally inspired about your passion! I was lucky enough to experience this recently in Seattle at the wonderful Click Away Conference. I had the honor of teaching at this conference, about my love of newborn photography, two years ago, and since then I have loved going as a guest and relaxing and soaking it all in! I want to share a few wonderful life lessons that I learned while I was there, and share a few photos of beautiful Seattle!

The coolest thing I learning was from Summer Murdock, an incredible photographer based in Salt Lake City. So I know that you guys all want your kids to be happy, and one way for them to be happy is to find their passions, right? But what Summer added here was so wonderful! I great way to find your passion is to pay attention to anything that sparks your interest. If you find something cool, exciting or interesting, don’t let that go! Pursue it or store it in your head- as this may be your passion! That really stuck with my during and after her talk and I hope that sharing it with you was helpful!

And from the wonderful Yan Palmer, aim low (so you won’t be disappointed) and challenge yourself to let go of guilt for an entire year! Wouldn’t that be an incredible year? I hope this sparks some interest for you!

Here are a few photos from my trip…
