Long lost blogger

Happy Holidays!

I have received a few e-mails asking me why I have not blogged in 6 months! This sums up my life right now... 6 months?? Really, a lot has happened in 6 months! I can honestly say I have been
so busy with shoots and my family I have not had time to blog.
I am so appreciative of my clients, for keeping me busy this year, and all the love and support when it comes to my work.

A Note or two- is pretty much ready to launch, I found out when I added the photos I put them in way too big, so it was running slow... So I will resize and reload when I have a moment... (6 months from now?! ) ; ) Hopefully not!

I am excited about the 2 weddings we have in January, Very excited, beautiful brides!
Nicole, and Sasha!

When I get some extra time, Or a great time manager..... I will post some of the last 6 months of Amazing, beautiful people, I have had the honor to shoot.

Last note for today,

One of my favorite things....
When our 3 year old wakes up in the morning... his smell is warm love.... I can't start my day until I rub my nose all over his face taking in the smell of my baby....
I know he is 3, but he is still our baby.

A crazy/fun weekend for this family.

This sweet family traveled from Colorado, we booked this session months ago. Not only did I shoot Leah's family, but I also shot her little sister's rehearsal dinner and wedding. I can pleasantly say, I saw a lot of Leah that weekend!
(rehearsal and wedding will be blogged on our new she.we studio blog)
I am not sure my studio will ever be the same! LOL! ; )

See you in August!

bad blogger

I have to say once again, I am a very bad blogger!
We have been very busy, and I haven't had a lot of time to actually sit down and write.... Or rather sit down and write a correct complete sentence! LOL! So I apologize now for those who are offended by my horrible sentence structure or run on sentences! Hopefully, you are here to view my art and not my grammar.
For those of you who really know me, you know that most of my postings and e-mails, are just like the way I talk... fast, and straight to the point! I am not ashamed to say that my ADD gets the best of me! (again, very busy, and afraid I am going to loose the thought!)

I am sorry!!!
I need to apologize to all of my recent clients... This last couple of months have been absolutely nuts! We have been traveling quite a bit for business, and have been completely over booked. I have definitely learned a valuable lesson.. : ) SLOW DOWN!
We are settling a bit, and I am catching up on the last two months of family, wedding, advertising, and magazine shoots... I promise to be caught up by the end of next week!
We are also launching our she.we studio website..
this is will feature Cam's amazing videos! Also, our advertising, music, wedding, corporate, and magazine shoots. (video and photography)

We are very excited, inspired, and truly appreciate all the love and support from our clients, friends, and family.
Oh yeah, my "facebook friends" blog readers.... You have been so great about leaving comments on my facebook page when you see a photo you love... I am trying to have that trend catch on here... If you are visiting and see a photo you love, drop a note or comment under the posting.. I really love hearing what you have to say (don't all artists?) Feedback is always welcome.

Here are a couple shots of Cam at work.

family of 5- just a peak

This family has taken me a little longer  to edit,  and post, due to the fact that there are soooo many amazing images to choose from.  I really had a great time photography this lovely family.  I was lucky to get dad away from fantasy baseball long enough to smile for my camera!  
Thank you for inviting me to your home,  I really enjoyed being a part of your family for the morning.

We are  booking up very quickly for this type of  "Senior" shoot, for next years Seniors.  For info contact our studio  520-742-0441

beautiful mamma!

I always get a kick out of first time mommies-to-be.... They think they are huge at 7 months!  When Hillary was 34 weeks she came in for the first time, I took one look at her belly and said "You need to come back to me in 3 or 4 weeks!"  She could not imagine getting any bigger...  Being a mom of three myself I have a little bit of experience in this area. : )
  Hillary did come back, and she did get much bigger!  Ok, I still think she has a lot of growing to do... I know she does not want to hear that!    Hillary and Andrew are both glowing, and loving the experience of being with child.

Sweet peak #1

Sneak peek...  
I think I may have said over and over again "She is so beautiful!"   This tiny little lady came to see me the first time at 6 weeks.  I just photographed her again last week with all of her very active cousins...  (will post that sneak peek next week)  
Her mom owns this absolutely amazing shoe boutique called "Stems a Shoe Boutique" check it out online if you do not live here in Arizona.   Many of you have commented on my shoes...  Now you know where I found them!

Enjoy this bathing beauty.. She is precious!

I remember when....

I remember the day 5 1/2 years ago,  I  photographed April's very pregnant belly.  Two children later, I am still photographing her beautiful family.   
I love watching children grow around me...  first teeth, first steps,  first words,  first potties,  first days of school, loosing teeth.  Firsts.. only a mother would know.   I remember shooting little "L's" baby announcements, now she is almost three!     I put some storyboards together for mom and dad, thought I would change it up a bit..  Enjoy!

He's One!

This is my handsome young nephew!
I can't believe he is already one!  He was on the move (Yeah, I can run!)  And really only had 
interest in the camera for about  5 minutes!     
Here is a preview for the family, and a couple sample story boards.  

one is 20x 20 the other is I believe 30x15
