Baby “R”

This family is very dear to me. Amazing friends and I’ve been privileged to photograph them from engagement through becoming a family. How lucky am I? I will admit I’m way behind in my blogposts but this little love is growing up fast so I better get my act together! (Ha, don’t worry, my client has had their images for months!) Still, time to share the goodness with the blogosphere.

This might be the most alert baby I’ve ever photographed! She’s been a super active baby from the get-go (still is!) and had no intention of settling down and making it easy on us for her newborn session. She made it memorable and made sure to put her personality “stamp” on the session. I love that about her. Way to say, “GET READY FOR ME, WORLD!! REAGAN IS COMING YOUR WAY!” I can’t wait to watch her grow up and see what God has in store for her. She’s just plain awesome.

“T” Family Fall Photoshoot

I’ve been photographing this family of four for the past three years and I have to say, it keeps getting better and better. One of the huge benefits of regular family photosessions is that the kids get more and more comfortable each time. There’s a phrase ~ “start ‘em while they’re young” . . . And it holds true for photography sessions too! Let me tell you, both of these kids ran *away* from more camera more than towards it the first time I photographed them. Even though I got the shots I needed, that first photosession exhausted both the parents and myself -haha! But they trusted the process and rebooked with me and each time has been easier and better than the last. Now the kids come running towards me for the hug and engage with me about their own ideas they want to inject into the photos. I love that! And . . . . drumroll please . . . they EVEN show affection to each other without being bribed! WHAH!?!??

True story.

Here are the images . .  . enjoy!

Senior Photos ~ Katherine

My gorgeous niece graduates high school this Spring & when I was in town last September we planned out a fun senior session for her. She’s super artsy and creative so I knew we had to make her locations very special. We selected a downtown urban feel for her first look and the Papago Mountains at sunset for her second look. She has the most radiant smile and I loved capturing her senior photos for her. Love you, Miss K. XOXO-

Congratulations, Beautiful! Looking forward to seeing what the future holds for you ~ Love, Aunt C

“S” Family Portraits {Christine Kay, Child and Family Photographer}

I am so in love with this family holiday session! This Phoenix family is so dear to me. I have known them for years and in 2009, I got to be their wedding photographer as they got married on New Years Eve! It was such a blast. (Highly recommend a New Years Eve wedding, I have to say!) Now they have this new addition to their family – Little Man Liam – and he could not be any cuter. Just *wait* til you see his cheesy-nose-scrunchy-eyes-closed smile. Gah!! He’s just the best. And Kelly and Ricky aren’t too hard on the camera either. Sheesh, people! Share some of the supermodel genes with the rest of us!

Enjoy the images!

“L” Family Shoot


Time to catch up on blogging! I’m WAYYY behind. Let’s start off tonight with this sweet, sweet family from my Phoenix sessions in September. I adore these littles!! (And their parents too!) It just doesn’t get any cuter than these little loves. They may have run me in circles to get the shots, but it was totally worth it!! I hope I make it to Phoenix next Fall to photograph you all again! XOXO-
