Stephanie & Shea

This is one of my favorite bride/groom couples of all time!  You might have seen this photo before?

This is from Stephanie & Shea's Trash the Dress on the beach in Rocky Point, Mexico.  Super cute, fun, and passionate couple.  They are my 'trademark' couple!  Well, they are expecting their first baby on or near February 1st, a little girl named Elliana.  Very exciting for them and all their friends and family!

Well, I had the honor today of shooting their maternity photos.  We had fun!  And here they are...

Here is Bella...this is while I was waiting for Steph to change into the first outfit.  They have two dogs, but Ace is too fast for even me to attempt to shoot.  Did get him in the family photo later though.
 This next one is my favorite of the day.  Very sweet and artistic.
 Yes, I made my traditional dog and cat and miscellaneous noises to get them to look at me for this series.  It is quite hillarious!
 Elliana's ultrasound...
This little sign says "A daughter is a gift from above, to treasure and forever love"
I can't wait to meet Elliana and photograph her newborn photos!  Reminder to Steph and Shea, the best time for those photos is about day 4 or 5, so call me when she arrives!

Karla and BJ

It is officially Thanksgiving, though most are still asleep.  Happy Thankgiving!  Karla & BJ got married this past Sunday.  Karla is the sister of one of the best, well-known, most creative and organized bridal consultants in Arizona (and beyond)!  I am honored that Kim Horn recommended me to her sister.  The wedding took place at the Arizona Biltmore.  I had a blast for many reasons, like they are great to hang out with, Karla has great taste in details (and so does Kim!), and the Biltmore is a magnificent backdrop for a day of shooting.  Before I forget, a quick shout out to Mary and Trish at Designs by Design for the gorgeous flowers, which always makes my job easier. 

I would go on a bit more about the wedding, but it is late and I just want these up so that Karla and BJ and families can enjoy them over the holiday tomorrow (or today actually.)  Congratulations to you, Karla & BJ!!
