We had such an amazing time laughing and dancing at this session! Seriously I don’t remember ever dancing this much with an extremely cute toddler. We could some beautiful flowers and gorgeous evening light and just had some fun. We explored, and this family did some snuggling!

I recently returned from a wonderful photography conference in Salt Lake City, hosted by ClickinMoms. This is a community of photographer I have been learning from and with since 2008. I took so many photos, and I wanted to share a small set here here where I did some freelensing at Silver Lake, just outside of Salt Lake City. My  favorite part was all of the amazing women I met, women I have know online for years, and the great gathering of talent to be inspired by. I laughed hard and cried a bit too, Here is a small slice of my afternoon in SLC!

Thanks for stopping by to check out some of the sweet, pure newness! Newborns are one of my very favorite subjects to photograph. I tell clients during our session, after I have gotten a good variety of images, that they will have to tell me when they want to stop the session, because I would keep photographing their baby ALL DAY LONG!!!


Okay, not really, I do know how to keep it professional, but I started photographing newborns about 4 years ago, and I love it even more today! I feel so lucky and honored to be chosen the document this whirlwind time in an new family’s life. How sweet is this little face? She was about 1 month old and and she decided to do a bit of sleeping and a bit of awake time during our session, the perfect combo!

I love her little rolls!
Her big bright blue eyes and so sweet here, she was really interested in the window light, and it shows off her baby blues so well!

I of course love getting Mom and Dad in the photos too, it is such a short window when they are this young, and how great will it be to show them these photos when they are older, and show them the love in your eyes? Parents always say, and I remember this feeling, that they could stare at their baby all day long. There is nothing like the love of your brand new baby and I love being able to document this love.

Isn’t she such a natural beauty? Such a natural beauty {Flagstaff, AZ baby and child photographer} This little one recently turned the big ONE, and I got to capture her whole first year of life! Click here to see the photos from her 6 month old/ sitting up session.

I loved getting to know this family. They are sweet and fun and I always loved meeting up with them for photos. We arrived at the location with plenty of time for some beautiful sun, just as the sun was setting. She was proud to show me her hair barrett… 

I was able to catch a sweet moment of the family checking out a pine cone, I love the look on the parent’s faces!
I really can’t stand the cuteness here, black and white…or color?

Well unfortunately this stop had a few mosquitoes, we had to move away from this area fast. Now isn’t Flagstaff supposed to be free of bugs??? When did that change? Well not today I guess. They were great sports though!

I seriously love this, I have a photo of me and one of my kids in a pose like this, I love how Mom is looking at Baby and Baby is checking out Mom’s hair, I just love the moment! SO so sweet!
I was so glad that this little one’s beautiful grandmother could join us, and I love the sweet moment captured here!
Well after some seriousness, we wen back to playtime, she was loving her flowers! I love all of the wild flowers we have this time of year after all of our monsoon rains! Check out her cute smile and those sweet little teeth! 
Again I could not decide, color or black and white? Decisions…decisions…
Thank you so much for taking a look and if you would like to book a 1 year old session please email me at Thanks!

I got to photograph a happy snuggly girl recently!

It is the biggest compliment I can think of to be asked back to photograph a family more than once. I have been lucky enough to photograph this family not just twice but 4 times! It all started when she was a newborn, and throughout her first year of life, and now as an adorable 2 year old! We planned the session for the beautiful evening light. We met up and Mom mentioned that the day’s nap had not gone as planned, but after a few snuggles with mom and dad, and a fun adventure, we ended up with a great session and a happy young lady! We went to a beautiful area on the San Francisco Peaks and let her lead the way.

I love capturing that sweet moment between mom and child.  The little one needed some alone time with mom, so I stepped back and gave them some space. It tuned out to be one of my favorite images from the session! I could not decided if I liked color or black and white better though. Dad joined us and I love the smiles they are sharing here…

She still was not quite sure about me at this moment, but I love this photo still!

We went on some very fun adventures in the forest you see behind her, and she loved carrying her flowers around too!

We all started giggling when we played a game where I acted sad, everytime I handed her a flower and she would throw it down. She loved it! I know it is a classic toddler game, but I love it every time!

I love to add in a photo of just mom and dad at the end of a session. A lot of times they don’t have a photo of just the two of them besides their wedding photos!
