My Blog bio picture
  • Welcome!

    Hello! I am so glad that you're here. Welcome to my blog. My little corner of the world where I share my work and my life.
    I believe in love. I believe in being present for your life. I believe in romance and love that lasts a lifetime. I believe that Starbucks should offer Toasted Graham Lattes all year. I believe my daughter is amazing. I believe in Tuesday night date nights with my dad. I believe there isn't much that prayer, a good workout or a cheeseburger can't fix. I believe that dresses and skirts with pockets are the best ever. I believe in being friends with my brides. I believe all dogs go to Heaven. I believe in having Thanksgiving dinner more than once a year. I believe in jumping up and down when I love an image I see on the back of my camera.
    I believe that every couple has a love story. ...I can't believe I am lucky enough to tell them.

Kelsey & Dave

Kelsey and Dave are the type of couple you can spend five minutes with and you are instantly drawn to them.  They are fun, easy going and completely in love.  They are getting married later this year in Tucson, but they live in Phoenix.  Matt and I met them in downtown Phoenix at Heritage Square to hang out and shoot their engagement session.  As we dodged stray cats and interesting residents of the area, we got to know Kelsey and Dave and totally fell in love with them as we captured their love.

Holy moly Kelsey, you are beautiful!

Dave’s shirt made me laugh.  You know we had to snag a pic like this.
I love this image.  

Kelsey, your eyes are amazing!

Kelsey and Dave, thank you for allowing us to spend the morning with you.  We are so excited to be a part of your wedding day!


Welcome to the new blog!

adorable flower girl dresses

Welcome!  I can’t explain how excited I am to launch a new website and blog.  I loved my old site but as I have figured out my brand and style as a photographer, it was definitely time for a change.

It would’ve been impossible for this whole thing to happen without the help of some amazing people.  First, my family and friends have been so supportive as I have spent hours and hours working on this project.  I am super lucky to have such a great circle.

My website testers were a big help too.  Alex, Sarah, Andrea, Dana, Cherie and Jennifer found little things here and there that improved the overall web experience and I am thankful for each of them.

I have to give a huge thank you to Diana Camacho from Simply D Design.  She designed my website and helped me so much as I took on the endeavor of customizing it and making it perfect for me.  She is fabulous!

I also have to thank Denise Saucedo from Denise Nicole Photography.  She took all of the images of me and Matt and has the patience of a goddess.  I hate having my picture taken, but she managed to make me feel great about it.  I adore her!

I owe my assistant Matt a humungous thank you.  He has dealt with my impatience, neediness and demand for the last month.  I have called him at all hours asking for advice and optimism and he has never let me down.

Last, I have to thank my clients.  They have been my motivation for creating something new and fresh for my business.  I have found my style by working with amazing people.  Their words of gratitude, praise and encouragement have been huge for me.  Thank you!  I hope that you enjoy the new site and blog.

Here’s to an awesome adventure!
