Nicole - Class of 2010

This beautiful girl wanted her portraits made in tall grasses. It was hard to find this time of year in Phoenix, but we found the perfect spot and she rocked it out!

I love it when they cry...

I know that sounds bad, but it really isn't. Canvas prints often make me cry. They are just so beautiful and seem to mean more somehow than a print on paper. I love the prints on paper, too. But canvas just takes it to another level for me.

In late January, I photographed an extended family who were in town to celebrate a very special 80th birthday. I could tell that the family genuinely loved each other - especially their matriarch. She cried when she saw the images on canvas. It just melted my heart!

Two of the family members purchased canvas collections to display in their homes. They loved them so much that they sent me a hand-written thank you card. Here's what they said... You can't believe how much we love not only the canvases, but the photos, too. They really reflect such personalities of everyone. The canvases look fabulous arranged on the wall - I stop and look at them each time I go by. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job!

Let's schedule your portrait session, soon! Call 602.628.8019 to make your reservation.

Baseball is in full swing!

and guess what...

My little guy has decided that he wants to be the catcher. We went out last weekend and got gear that fits since the gear the league provided was too big. He is taking this very seriously and pretending that it doesn't hurt when he gets hit.

Hot Lights in Las Vegas

AfterDark was a great experience in Las Vegas! Not only was I able to attend an amazing business class, but I also got to play around with some cool equipment. These hot lights are on my list of equipment to buy as soon as I can make some more money.

Love is in the air in downtown Phoenix - Engagement Session

Bec and Duane are getting married! We had a great time exploring their stomping ground (downtown Phoenix) with them to celebrate. They are so sweet and fun. Aren't they just amazingly cute together!?!

Their wedding is just a month away. Ivan Martinez and I have partnered on this project and are excited that we will get to share their special day with them.

We know it can be hard to figure out what to get for the couple who has almost everything they need, so we are offering a gift registry for them. If you want to help them add pages to their wedding album or add prints or photo gifts to their package, let us know, and we'll provide a beautiful gift certificate for you to give to Bec and Duane. Call 602.628.8019 to find out more.

Wish Bec and Duane the best, and enjoy the show!

Finally getting the recognition she deserves

Many of us feel that our child's teacher is the best teacher ever. I hope you are luck enough to feel that way!

Well, Riley's tacher was just named the AAGT Teacher of the Year. We are so happy for her and so lucky to have had her as Riley's teacher both this year and last year! Way to go, Ms. Mensing. Keep pushing our kids to do their best and to love learning. You deserve this award and all of the attention that goes along with it.

Watch for some client work to be posted soon. Sorry I haven't posted more lately. It's been busy around here!
