I first met Cicely when she designed my best friends wedding and I’ve loved her creative eye ever since! She’s so bright and cheerful and she makes you feel like you’ve known her your whole life. Do you know that type of person? I love that vibe so much so when I heard I would […]
OH LOOK!!! It’s the shoes Kelsie brought to her announcement session at 14 weeks!! And now Lennon is marching around town in them! Isn’t it absolutely nuts how time constantly throws us for a loop? We met up with these three just a few short moths ago for Lennons 6 month session and now she’s […]
Okay so about 8 years ago I started photographing a group called the Gilbert Town Fiddlers. The High School fiddle group is run by my dear friends Sara and Taylor and this year, my son is a new member! Through this group, I’ve met the most incredible young people and have been so honored to […]
Raffi and I met up with Heather, Travis, and their two adorable sons at Queen Creek wash for the sweetest family photos ever! These two boys were at that age where you might as well throw all expectations of focus out the window and just let the silliness take over. And I’m so glad we […]
So Joel and Chelsea were the first bride and groom I ever photographed way back in 2011!! Now they’re expecting their first baby and I could not be happier for them! We met up at Saguaro Lake for some desert scenery and I immediately felt like we were back at their engagement session ten years […]

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any non-branding work but I couldn’t help sharing these sweet images from Baby Lennon’s 6 month session at Agritopia in Gilbert. With a 6 month old, you can never tell if the baby is going to be an angel with smiles for the camera, or a fussy bundle […]

Hey. Do you mind if I tell you a story? One you might not have heard. All the elements in your body were forged many many millions of years ago in the heart of a faraway star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and kings. Until, eventually, they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe. There is only one of you. And there will never be another.
