Carol, Eric, and Buddy

I had such a nice afternoon with these three--visiting their gorgeous home, exploring their amazing neighborhood and its incredible views, and just having such a relaxed and low-key photo shoot with two lovely people. It was such a treat for me! I really wanted to create some photos that would show them in their element....doing what they love, together, and capturing their personalities. I'm so pleased with the outcome. 

Buddy is their dog and he was the sweetest little guy! You can tell how much they adore him and how he is really just part of the family. Such a lucky pup!

These next pictures were taken from a lookout in their neighborhood where you get high enough to see all the way to the coast and on a clear day, downtown even. Beautiful spot.

We also got some head shots of Carol for her business. She was so good in front of the camera! I love some of the shots we got!

Eric is what you might call a beverage connoisseur and even has his own blog! So we caught a few of him in his element as well.

Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice

Beautiful family.

Awesome location.

Lovely light.


Two little girls, Margaux and Beatrix, with the most darling names and personalities to match, who could literally just melt your heart and make you want to have a dozen of your own.

Doesn't get much better. :)

I seriously had to cut myself off from posting more pictures because I could have just gone on and on.
Thank you, Alexanders, for such an exciting photo shoot!

Home for Christmas

While I was in Phoenix for Christmas, I got a last minute phone call from the family who owns the absolutely beautiful home featured in this photoshoot....and since they had all their children and grandchildren home for the holidays, they decided they needed some fresh new pictures of everyone together. Especially before the youngest son leaves soon on his 2 year mission to England! I was so flattered they thought of me and had a great time doing this shoot. 
I know I say this a lot, but honestly, NICEST FAMILY EVER! So down to earth and just so the core. They were also so much fun and totally chill. We listened to Jack Johnson the whole time and had some good laughs.
Thanks you guys for being so patient and I hope you enjoy the pictures!

I loved all their colors! They did such a great job. And their house really is just stunning. So so beautiful.

Shelley is the Momma Hen and isn't she such a babe?  I LOVED all her spunk.

This the spot where the family often gathers to relax and chat. I was excited to capture them here.

I am completely in love with these pictures of Grandpa holding his little grand-daughter. 

So proud. So sweet.

And what darling little grandsons! Who are also SOOOO patient. AND stylish.

Momma and her boys

Can I please steal those super cute shirts and vests for my Calvin? Size 2t please. :)

Two unmarried brothers.....any takers ladies???!! :)

This one, however, is going to have a two year waiting list....Richard leaves on his mission in just a month or two. We took some time at the end to get a few of him alone before his big departure.

From the looks of these, I think there are going to be some pretty broken-hearted ladies.....wouldn't you say? :)
