Tucson Family Portrait Photography

The last time I photographed this sweet family was when their youngest was a tiny baby. I am constantly amazed at how quickly they grow.

They appreciate candid, light-hearted and fun.

The fall and winter months are busy and bustling with photo projects. I focus my time on photographing and editing and don’t spend a moment on updating blog posts or sharing all the great things I am working on. I save that for the beginning of the year when I have a little more time to breathe. Let’s begin with an important one!

Every fall the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern Arizona hosts a couple fundraising events. This year they did something new and put on their annual wine event at The House. People were able to tour the lobby, kitchen, dining and outdoor areas of the Ronald McDonald House. They were able to get a feel for the care provided for the families that stay there. They were able to meet some of the staff that create the warm, nurturing and loving environment that make the Ronald McDonald House so essential to children who are healing.

They always put on a lively event, with food, music (Adara Rae & the Homewreckers), a silent auction and a space to mingle and enjoy the evening. Sean and Amy Miller, along with other local “heros”, are long-time supporters and often in attendance at these important events.

Tucson Newborn Baby Portrait Photography

Standard

When I photograph a newborn baby I don’t get too into dolling them up with clothing or props. There is an inherent beauty in the stillness, the newness, the peacefulness, the wisdom, the fragility and even the cries. I like to sit with them and wait for their quick expressions to come and go. They have their own magic that surrounds them. They are perfect as is. They can be dressed up and when they are older, during playtime or Halloween. When they are new, life is simple and beautiful for them. I like to cherish that simplicity in their first photos.

Tucson Pregnant Portrait Photography

Standard

Do you ever take photos, but have one image that stays in your mind well after you? This is one of those images for me. Although I went there with the intention of taking beautiful pregnant portraits at sunset, I never knew it would be this good! The sunsets here are often incredible but it’s a roll-of-the-dice to find out if I will get one that is perfect. This happened to be a lucky day. The temperatures were cool, in comparison to the oven-like heat of the day. The pregnant momma was happy and comfortable enough to get just the right angle. Then the magic happened!

There is nothing like the mountains and sunsets in the southwest!
