christia & and all her fur babies : phoenix family photographer

a few days after i gave birth to maya i gave myself an awful haircut. lawdy, it was bad. 
i called the closest salon & made an appointment. 
this beautiful soul rescued me & has been cutting my hair since. i try to plan
my haircuts with one of my two trips to phoenix every year. 

meet christia. 
she's so fun & kind & even though we never hung out... i adore her & count her as a friend.

i knew she had some dogs. she'd talked about them. 
we discussed doing a session & luck fell into place in january while we were on our family vacation.

she shows up with 5 dogs! 
it was quite a sight to see & my kids, who were with me were over joyed. 

meet francis, finn, spotlight, butters & chomp!

i love, love, LOVE the images we got.

taryn & dave : phoenix family photographer

i don't have enough words to describe what this couple & their family means to me.
they are a perfect example of what my career choice has brought to my life. 
they hired me for their wedding off a referred vendor list. 
we hit it off immediately. 
i photographed their wedding while 8 months pregnant with finn.
i've gotten to photograph their sweet family almost every year since 
& it is something that i look forward to. 
i miss seeing their sweet faces & wish we could hang out more & raise our babies together. 

since last year they've added another babe to the mix. mr. dax. he is adorable! 

big sis' adley & ellery adore him.
