Collect moments, not things.

This image was so incredible to photograph.  Arizona is known for its incredible monsoon season in the summer. In between hours of scorching heat, the yellow clouds of dust roll in and block out the sun, sheets or rain begin to pour down and it is one of the most amazing scenes that Mother Nature produces.  This image was captured just after a bridal session at the Gilbert, Arizona LDS temple seconds before the rain began to pour and the sky was a perfect cotton candy mural.

This session was part of a mini session collection and these kids were a dream to photograph.  Everything about this session was perfection, from the lighting and their style to the sweet little girl and all of her spunk.

This little boy was such a dream to photograph.  I loved everything about his snuggled up poses and sweet little tucked lips.

This family is a favorite of mine, I have been photographing them for years.  As they faced major health obstacles over the last couple of years, we had the chance to spend some time on location and in their home to make some memories that will last a lifetime.
