Dc Ranch Desert Session

In the desert the light wraps itself around in an ethereal glow. The lightness, the colors of the desert, all add an effervescent magic to the images. When looking at this shot I can feel the warmth. Both in the setting and the exchange between mother and son.


Scottsdale Civic Center Portraits in the Green

The Scottsdale Civic Center is always a beautiful location for portraits. The many flowers and plants are changed out there on a seasonal, sometimes monthly basis - so you are never sure of what you will get. But one of the consistent areas I love is the main park with it's old growth trees, and the water features and flower beds by City Hall. These were taken in September, but March through May will be greenest time for pictures there.


Dc Ranch continues to be my favorite destination for capturing some colors of the desert, and the fall. I was surprised to find green grass and little yellow daisies growing here, in December!

Adventure and Vintage Police Car Theme for Newborn Session

This sweet little guy's father is a local officer of the law, so mom incorporated the vintage toy police car and the knitted uniform cap. Baby's nursery has a travel/adventure theme, so she purchased the knitted hat and goggles....hot air balloon courtesy of Jacqueline's digital artistry. Awesome!
