MONDAY. I did not look this cool today. I looked like a business owner in the middle of trying to figure out how to better follow up with potential clients while also editing and also staying creative and also not eating everything in site. The struggle was real, y'all. Tell me I'm not the only one? --- Shot from Liz & Mike's @hotelvalleyho wedding 🎉
I spent about 24 hours in San Diego last week for a couple shoots (will share sneak peeks this week!) and it wasn't even kind of enough time by the water. I love the ocean and the boardwalks and the color that beachside towns have! There's so much life and joy at the beach. And that's all I want 😭 please, more beach time.
SUNDAY. A day of rest and shenanigans. How did you spend your day of goodness? I had a wedding consult this morning with an amazing couple, had lunch with family and saw a movie. Basically a perfect day. Now I have to face the fact that my kitchen is covered in dirty dishes and my laundry is taking over my home... --- Shot from a patient story shoot for PCH, creative direction & planning by @andersonadpr
On the real, what it looks like behind the scenes of a business lifestyle session. There is so much work that goes into creating those picture perfect insta-posts. I encourage my clients to embrace some of the less-than perfect moments, because I love them and I want them to as well. Business and life aren't perfect, but it's a beautiful journey in all the messiness. --- Happy, messy and awesome. --- Behind the scenes from the @heather_crabtree August brand session shot at @ruzecakehouse
I think I've shared this before but, honestly? I love it so much. I don't care. I recently was going through alllllll my photos for updates to my style and location guides for sessions (👀 sneak peek in my stories) and I just want to continually share this photo because I love the rocks, the sky, the people, the colors and I just loved creating this image with this awesome couple! OKAY?!
Yay! It's here! #icecreamweek at @ruzecakehouse ! Y'all gotta go taste all the deliciousness. And see the cuteness. They're right in Old Town! I want to live in the image of a marshmallow and chocolate cone.
IT IS TOO HOT OUT. I really wish we had jumped in at the end of the session. Next client to shoot at the water...let's go in? --- Shot from Weston + Natalie's Salt River + Saguaro Lake maternity session
Julie + Andy did their day right. Their ceremony was in a garden behind their home. They held their reception on the roof of their building. They surrounded themselves with their favorite people, good food and great times. They're the real deal, awesome wedding people.
I enjoy adding sprinkles on top of life. Happy little things that make each day fun, enjoyable and memorable. And for me that means, adding color wherever I can and also upgrading with guacamole. It's Monday but it doesn't have to feel like SUCH a Monday!
Do you feel that? It's the changing of the seasons...it's coming...family portrait season! AND I CANNOT WAIT! I am ready for kiddos and parents and new shoes and fresh haircuts and capturing family fun. In their homes. In the desert. Or at an awesome resort like the @arizonabiltmore - love when my clients want to shoot somewhere awesome!
