Faves of 2011 {Tucson Family Photographer, Tucson Newborn Photographer}

2011 has been an amazing year (full of plenty of ups and downs) and I cannot believe it has come to an end! I have had the privilege of photographing many of Tucson's cutest kiddos and gorgeous families, and truly feel honored that they chose me to do so. It was fun to look back at all my sessions this past year as I tried to pick out some of my favorite shots...

I absolutely love love love photographing bellies - whether it's photographing those growing bellies in the amazing AZ outdoors or in the comfort of the momma-to-be's home.

Talk about baby fever. There is nothing more amazing that photographing a brand new baby, and after each newborn session I did this year, I went home thinking how lovely it would be to have baby #3.


Having two little ones myself, I love being able to capture these cute faces. They certainly don't stay young long, do they? This little girl here is super special to me...I've photographed her at 10 days, 7 months and 1 year. I am excited to watch her grow!



I absolutely love that I can call some of my clients, friends. Meeting these wonderful people like these families here, are the best part of my job!


One of the major highlights of 2011 for me was photographing a wedding with my very best friend. We need to do that more often!

And of course, I can't forget my own family! :o)

Thank you all for a fabulous year, and I wish you all happiness and joy in 2012! Happy New Year!

Happy 1st Bday Little Man! {Scottsdale Child Photographer, Tucson Child Photographer}

I lived in Scottsdale years ago and one of the things I miss about being up there are the awesome parks that are sprinkled throughout the city. This little guy had just turned 1, and his momma (a college friend) asked that I take his bday photos the next time I was up in Scottsdale. We met at the cutest railroad park ever...I cannot wait to head back to Phx to take my boys there too!

In the meantime, here are some of the birthday boy's pictures from that morning. :o)

Handsome Little Man - {Tucson Newborn Photography, Tucson Newborn Photographer}

I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Baby {G}. I had such a great time with his awesome parents during momma's maternity session, I just knew he was going to be a sweetie!

He had such a special bond with his dad already (and he happens to look just like him too!), and just wanted to be held all morning! I'm really happy he let us put him down for just a bit...I absolutely adore the photos we got of him. Here's just a few of my faves. Congrats again {T} family!

This fun couple met while attending the University of naturally, they wanted their engagement photos taken where they met and fell in love! They were such an awesome couple...super funny and easy-going and totally cute with one another. They began their session by telling me they were awful at taking pictures but they were totally's a few of my faves of their gorgeous photos.

Welcoming Beautiful Baby {H} - {Tucson Newborn Photographer}

This baby girl was the most perfect little model during her newborn session. She was such an angel as she slept and posed for us. I think I could have just spent the entire day with her!

Here's a peek of her session...I love that she woke up towards the end to take a look at mom and dad. Congrats to the {W} family on their baby girl!
