Fresh 48 Newborn Session Banner University | Gilbert Newborn Photographer

The name is kind of silly to me – Fresh 48. I mean, yeah, we typically shoot Fresh 48 sessions within 48 hours, but fresh? I guess Squish 48 or Adorable 48 don’t really have the same ring to them. But I digress. After weeks of check ins, tentative schedules and packed ready bags, this sweet baby girl is finally here and her parents – (and I!) – could not be happier. She was a stinker, just perfectly happy and content to wait us all out and surprise us with her birth day. She kept a lot of people on their toes for weeks, but she was worth every minute! And now, she is right where she was supposed to be all along, making one very special Mom and Dad happier than they ever knew possible ❤️ Their journey did not start out easy, but now they are just perfect together!

Newborn Family Lifestyle Session | Tempe Newborn Photographer

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!

Fall Family Photos at Queen Creek Olive Mill | Gilbert Family Photographer

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!

Fall Family Photos at the Orchards at Agritopia | Gilbert AZ Family Photographer

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! 

Sunrise Maternity Session at Veteran’s Oasis Park | Gilbert Maternity Photographer

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!)
