I feel like I waited forever for this little one to arrive, though probably not as long as his Mama felt! You might recognize these awesome new parents from their sunrise maternity session in November, and they are back and looking even more amazing! Parenthood looks great on them, and their little bundle is already quite the handsome guy. I got to meet him a few weeks ago at their beautiful home in Tempe, and capture some of those sweet first moments as a family. Newborn lifestyle sessions are so fun, the excitement (and exhaustion!) of having a brand new baby at home is contagious and I love to see the new bond growing between baby and his family. Watching brand new Moms dote on their little ones reminds me of those first days with my first baby and how every little wince and hiccup had my immediate and undivided attention. ❤️ Meanwhile… Dad maaaay or may not have been catching up on the games. In every room. I had to giggle, he didn’t miss a play during our session so it was fitting that the newest little fan sport his team shirt for the end of our session – go Seahawks!

I’ve been keeping this adorable session under wraps for so long that it was still warm out when we met at the Queen Creek Olive Mill for their family photos! I had so much fun with these kiddos, Mom has a GREAT attitude about photos and was willing to let their little personalities show. Sit still and smile just isn’t practical for some kids, and that’s ok! Embrace the silly, the playful and the giggles, because that is the best way to get those real genuine smiles to shine through. And sometimes, just sometimes, someone even ends up upside down!

If you’ve never had a chance to stop by the Queen Creek Olive Mill, you are missing out on an amazing hidden gem here in the East Valley! The grounds are beautiful, lots of big weepy trees, grass and benches to enjoy the outdoors when the weather is amazing. The cafe serves up some of the most delicious looking food – I will definitely be making a point to grab some during my next trip. And where else can you get freshly pressed olive oil, straight from farm to bottle to your kitchen? Because I always love to support small business when I can, this year I stocked up on a variety of yummy olive oil flavors to bring to our families in California for Christmas. You can even take a tour and learn how olive oil is made, what a fun afternoon!

Now that Christmas is only 7 days away – YIKES! – I can share some of the gorgeous family photo sessions from this crazy Fall season! Since I finally feel like I’m getting my footing here in Arizona and ready to explore beyond my favorite Target and Starbucks, I was able to add some amazing new locations to my bag of tricks. First up, the lush, green orchards at the Farm at Agritopia! The orchards are only open to families twice a year for a limited number of sessions, and I was super lucky to nab a perfect sunset spot. I packed 7 awesome families into a couple of hours at the orchard and we made some holiday magic! 

The orchards will be open again in the spring and I’ve heard that there are some beautiful blossoms on the trees that time of year! If you didn’t make it in this time around, keep your eyes peeled for my next date there. Or, if you can’t wait for Spring, I just may have another option up my sleeve for fruit trees. Drop me a message and let’s chat!

I think I’ve mentioned maaaaybe once or twice (or fifteen times!) how much I just adore sunrise for photo sessions. It is so peaceful and quiet, and cool! When you are 30+ weeks pregnant, cool is the key word here! Clients often think they can’t get up that early, or their kids will never do it, or they won’t look amazing that early in the morning, but I am telling you I have never ONCE had someone tell me they regret choosing sunrise! This particular location really shines at sunrise. The light behind the little waterfall just slays me every time – I cannot get enough of it!! Stay tuned for a peek at this stunning Mama’s little guy (yes, I am so far behind on blogging that baby is already here!)

Last Fall, this beautiful extended family chose McCormick-Stillman Railroad park as the backdrop for their family photos, and I was so excited to go check it out!  Tucked back in a little city park in the middle of the bustling city of Scottsdale sits an amazing little historical gem! The McCormick-Stillman Railroad park opened in 1975 as a result of a donation of land from the McCormick family and the donation of a railroad from the Stillman family. Within the park you can find several historic buildings, a private railroad car once used by 4 past Presidents, a beautiful vintage carousel, and of course, the railroad! The 15 gauge ridable miniature railway cruises through tunnels, past water tanks and even has a working turntable. If you have a little (or big!) train fan in your house, this park is the place to be!

The park is an awesome backdrop for families looking for something a little different for their family photos. The area has a very Fall look and feel, and the train cars and carousel make a unique and playful setting, perfect for Christmas! Grandma did an amazing job at making sure that everyone coordinated, and the colors they chose fit the location perfectly. This is definitely one of my favorite spots to shoot at the holidays!
