When I arrived at Adrianna and Louie's beautiful home, I was was welcomed with huge smiles and big hugs! Adrianna showed me around their gorgeous home and introduced me to their sweet baby girl soundly sleeping on her grandfather's chest. It had been three weeks since this little one had been born. I was privileged to have been present at her birth, so I was anxious to see how she had changed since I last saw her. She was just as perfect as I remembered!

We started taking photos in the living room. As I watched how sweetly Adrianna and Louie craddled Adelina, I was so touched. This is their tiny miracle, who they have patiently waited for. I could feel how much they love each other and their baby. I love Lifestyle sessions because they are so intimate and really capture the everyday life of a family, especially newborn sessions. These new parents were beaming with joy and love. It truly is humbling and an honor to capture this special time in their lives!

Quickly Adelina let us all know it was time to eat. As she snuggled close to Adrianna I was so moved by the sweet smiles and tender interactions between this mother and daughter. This was her happy place, feeling the closeness, comfort, and security that her mother gives. After she finished, we were able to capture some detail shots of those tiny toes and even caught some sweet baby smiles.

Adrianna and Louie, the love you have for each other is so beautiful! Baby Adelina is so blessed to have such loving and attentive parents. Thank you so much for welcoming me into your home to photograph the early beginnings of your story as a family! 




The warm Arizona sun was beginning to set as I pulled into Christopher Columbus Park. This little  oasis in the desert was bustling with activity as families were clustered around the lake fishing and enjoying the weekend. As I walked toward the Bostwick family, I jumped for joy when I saw how absolutely darling they all were! Not only were they the cutest family, but they were all in perfectly coordinated blue outfits! 

We began our session away from the crowds, in a small (this is the desert afterall) patch of green trees and tall grasses which perfectly framed the lake glistening behind us. The sun was golden and the light was gorgeous! We did a few posed frames and then allowed the kids to play for a bit as we made our way to the lake. During family sessions, I love to incorporate time for families, especially for the littles, to just play, interact, and connect. I feel like this is when I am best able to capture those candid moments, the sweet snuggles, tickle fights, and precious moments that really tell a family's story. One of my favorite moments from this session was when we helped put sister on her older brother's shoulders. He had requested we do this shot and was so eager to carry her on his own. I thought to myself, what a sweet boy! You could tell how much he cared for his little sister, and my heart melted!

Bostwick family, I loved meeting you all! I had so much fun on our little adventure and sharing all the tic- tacs. :) Thank you for braving the heat with me. I look forward to documenting more memories for you all!
