I’m extra fun with caffeine.

Sundays with family are my happiest days. 

My perfect morning consists of an early morning sunrise, coffee, and quiet time with Jesus. 

I could binge on chocolate, cookies, and “The Office” all night long. 

Grease and Mamma Mia are my jam.

My ideal night is sitting around the fire pit and pool with my girlfriends.

My favorite trip has been to the Big Island, Hawaii, but my dream trip is Copenhagen, Denmark.

I want to say I love living out in the country, but I really enjoy picking up a latte at the Starbucks on every corner.

Ison’s Family Photos in Queen Creek Wash

I had the pleasure of taking the Ison’s Family Photos the other day and it was such a joy! Last fall, I took their cousins, the Bailey’s, photos. Mindi passed my name along to Katie when she asked about a light & airy photographer in Gilbert. I find it so kind that Mindi had such a wonderful experience in the fall and that she loved her photos so much, that she shared my name!! And just like their cousins, the Ison’s were amazing to work with! 

Originally, Katie reached out to me because her oldest, Raiden, will be leaving in a few weeks and so she wanted to have photos of all of them together before he left. But the more we talked the photos were capturing so much more!

Logan, their second, will be a senior this year and so we took a few extra photos for him. I always love to look back and see the photos of seniors at the beginning of the year and then again at the end of their senior year, because it’s always crazy how much they seem to change.

I also came to find out later, that the day we took the Ison’s family photos, Katie & Renny were celebrating their 23rd wedding anniversary! She said that she couldn’t think of a better way to spend the day then capturing the sweet of memories of their life together now!

This was my first summer family session this year and we were shooting in TRIPPLE DIGIT temps!! Oh boy, gotta love those Arizona summers! But we were prepared for it… Between the shade of the tall trees at the Queen Creek Wash, lots or water, and the breeze that would come every so often, it was not as bad as you would have expected!

It is always a surprise when I shoot at Queen Creek Wash whether there will be water in the wash or not, and it is really beautiful either way! There was no water this time. So, we were able to go way back, to where the water is usually deepest, into this beautiful little circle of trees with the glowly light shining through it all! Emma, the youngest, was wearing these cute little heels and could only take small little steps. So, Raiden gave her a piggy back ride all the way back. The way all of the siblings treated each other was so sweet. You can tell they are all so close! And I loved stepping into their world for just a few minutes and capturing it!!
