The Lambson Family

Meet the Lambson Family: Hans, Casi, Ryker and Dax. They were so much fun to work with! I think Ryker, the oldest boy, had about 100 different expressions and gave me a sampling of just about all of them! This session is going to be really hard to edit; everytime I pull up a new photo one of the boys is doing something cute! Ryker was super excited that he was going to get ice cream after the shoot and would do anything for ice cream! I just fell in love with these sweet little boys. Check out their slideshow here. Thanks for the great afternoon guys!

This door is on the north facing side of the train station downtown. I love the green doors!

One of Ryker's many cute faces:)

Ryker is a great big brother to Dax!

Little Dax! This baby just kept smiling all morning! Love the drool waterfall:)

Seriously, is Ryker a cutie or what? Watch out women 20 years from now!

Here Ryker was telling me about how he was going to eat 11 scoops of ice cream! Wow!

Mom, Casi, and Dad, Hans:

I love it when families just start being families...even if it means your little brother starts pulling out your hair!

Madalynn's First Birthday

Meet Mad (short for Madalynn). She's just turned one and is possibly one of the most beautiful little girls I've ever laid eyes on. Her smile was infectious and I found myself giggling just looking at her. Since I lost my own mom when I was a kid, I've got a big soft spot for mother-daughter sessions. I want this little girl to look back on these photos 50 years from now and know just how much her mother adored her. Thanks for giving me this opportunity Amie! And happy birthday Mad!

Leslie and Cy's Engagement Session

Leslie and Cy are getting married next August and after this engagement session, I can't wait to be a part of the big day! We did this shoot at Pine Canyon golf course, where every turn offers another amazing view. Here are a few of my favorite images from the day!

I love this wall's texture and colors at the club house at Pine Canyon!

Cy proposed to Leslie on the 13th hole. What better place to do engagement photos? Here's one of Leslie pretending to swoon!

Love this angle!

Many of you already know that I'm a SUCKER for puppies. Check out the new addition to their family! She was adopted at the "Howl-o-ween" event at Second Chance Center here in Flagstaff.
Leslie has amazing amber colored eyes!

Thanks guys! I'm really looking forward to the wedding in August!

Wade Lashely's cover of Monsoon Magazine

Wade Lashely, singer and songwriter in Arizona, was chosen to be on the cover of Monsoon Magazine for November. It was great timing since we had just finished up a photo shoot for him before he took off for New Mexico and Austin, TX on a tour. Here's the cover and the inside story on Wade. He's an AMAZING musician so you should try to check him out the next time he's in Flagstaff. Congrats Wade!

Flagstaff goes High Style with Strut!

Strut! is a fashion runway show that showcases fun and funky fashions from local boutiques, independent designers and outdoor retailers here in my hometown. And it true Flagstaff spirit, it's also a fundraiser for the Northern Arizona Food Bank. I got to hang out with the ladies from Shoes-n-Such boutique as they prepared for the show. It was a lot of fun and completely overwhelming to see how many people showed up for a great cause. Also, after seeing just how beautiful these ladies look, I totally predict that the Shoes-n-Such store just might be swarming with some available men shopping for "shoes for their sister" Ha! Here's a few images from the day:

Shoes-n-Such manager, Kristen Faxlanger, gets some high fashion makeup from Studio 8 Salon's masterful Pat (Studio 8 is located on 8 W. Route 66 in Flagstaff. You can reach them at 928-774-9432):

And hair was by the fabulously talented Sean at the same salon:

And the final look for the models....MEOW!!
Katelyn Redding dons some high fashion feathers for her final look.

Extra teal makeup was applied closer to the show for contrast with the feathers:

Allie St. Amand had some gorgeous big hair with feathers!

The beautiful Jackie Banks:

And finally my gorgeous friend Kristen Faxlanger!

Love the hair!

Here the ladies are before they went on stage in the greenroom:

And here they are on stage! Bravo!

He was almost 2 weeks old in these photos and absolutely adorable! You can register here to get an automatic email when all the photos are posted on an online gallery.

This almost looks like a first smile to me:)

I think this might be my new favorite baby pose!

I love little baby feet!

I can't decide if I like this better in color or black and white..what do you think?

One tired little boy...modeling is hard work! Thanks for being such a sweetheart to work with Aaron!
