Hannah, Maia, Lauryn and Dani

I had the pleasure of working with these lovely ladies last week for a photo shoot for Smart Specs Optical. I've know Hannah and Maia's parents for a long time. I've worked with their medical practice since 2005 to help them with special projects. In hindsight, it's because of them, and their flexibility with my time there, that I've had the opportunity to have the time to develop my photography. I'm eternally grateful to them for that! I've known Lauryn's parents since 2001 and her and her sister were my very first kid photo shoot! Pam believed in me long before I believed in myself! Thanks Pam! I just met Dani and recently found out that she's a model and in the advertisements at Petsmart in Flagstaff! They were all so much fun to work with! Thanks everyone and here are my favorites of each of the girls!

Baby Erin Elizabeth Bowker

It's seems fitting to post newborn photos on Easter, a day that symbolizes rebirth and hope. Meet little Erin Elizabeth Bowker, born March 30th. What a cutie! Here's a few of my favorites from our session! Welcome to the world little one!

She really looks like she was smiling at me here:

Big yawn!

I brought this headband with me, isn't she darling?

She has some beautiful, bright eyes! I can't wait to watch her grow up!

The Golightly Family

After I posted the entry about proofs, I got a lot of questions on "who are those gorgeous kids?" Meet the Golightly family, Tyler, Madilyn and Brooke. These kids were as much fun as they were cute! Here's only a few of my favorites!

Here's my favorite photo of Brooke, love the eyes!

Madilyn is such a beautiful little girl (and a great model)!

The girls reminded me of me and my sister growing up, you could tell they were each other's best friend.

Love this photo of all three kids piled on top of each other!

And finally here's a fun one of Holly and all her great kids. Thanks for the great afternoon!

Bringing back proofs!

When I started shooting digital, one thing I missed right away was the 4x6 proofs that you'd give to clients. I started thinking that I might not be the only ones missing these little gems, so I'm now proudly offering them as a product add-on for my weddings and portrait sessions! They come with a white border and a beautiful little box. Here's a couple of images from my first order!

Martin Fagan-Irish Olympian

When Martin's Coach, Greg McMillan, contacted me to do Martin's photo session, I was pretty excited. THEN, I started doing a little internet research on Martin to try to get a feel for his style. Martin is a professional runner and Irish Olympian. I slowly started to find out he's been breaking records and is kind of like a rock star in the running world. Add to that my husband's admiration for him, and then suddenly, I was a ball of nerves! Martin is probably the most famous person I've ever photographed but more than anything, I really just wanted to get it right for him. But then Martin showed up for the session and he was one of the most humble, sweet, funny and gracious people I've ever met. We had a blast downtown Flagstaff looking for some edgy locations together. Here's only a few of my favorites from the session. Thanks Martin and good luck on all your upcoming races!

Martin's also famous for all his tattoos!
