{Las Vegas Child Photographer | Kingman Child Photography} Audrey

I had the wonderful opportunity this past weekend to get together with the fabulous Sally of Sallykate Photography.  Unfortunately, my daughter was away for the weekend, but Sally had HER gorgeous daughter, Audrey with her.  We went out on Saturday for some impromptu photography fun.  If you are in a creative rut, there is NOTHING better than getting together with another photographer to get your creative juices going again.  I had SO much fun doing these, and Audrey was an absolute joy to work with!  Not only is this girl stunning, but she is a natural in front of the camera.  She needed very little posing instruction…this was all her, with a few candid shots thrown in for good measure.   I hope you make it out my way again, Sally…I’d love to do another get together!

We started off in the snowy mountains…it was cold, but we got some AMAZING shots!  Did I mention that all of the dresses worn by Audrey in this session were my Grandmother’s?  They are each around 75 years old…genuine vintage one-of-a-kinds!  They don’t make them like this anymore!

One of my favorite locations…it’s nothing too terribly exciting on the outside, but the lighting here…oh, the lighting… Las Vegas Child Portrait Photographer Lisa Holloway of LJHolloway Photography photographs a gorgeous young girl outdoors in Kingman, Arizona - near Las Vegas.

I LOVE this spot as well.  This was Sally’s special request.  I was happy to take her here. :) Las Vegas Child Portrait Photographer Lisa Holloway of LJHolloway Photography photographs a gorgeous young girl outdoors in Kingman, Arizona - near Las Vegas.

And this spot is just something special…something other worldly and surreal.  They day that we did these was overcast, snowing in the mountains, cold, and just overall unpredictable.  You really never know what you’re going to get when you make the drive out here.  That being said, I’ve gotten some of my favorite shots here.  When you get great skies?  Huge bonus.  We definitely had great skies.  Stormy snow squalls with patchy sun peeking through on the distant hills.  So many possibilities!  This first image is a panoramic landscape that I created by stitching together 3 shots…this small size really doesn’t do it justice… Las Vegas Child Portrait Photographer Lisa Holloway of LJHolloway Photography photographs a gorgeous young girl outdoors in Kingman, Arizona - near Las Vegas. Enter our model, and the fun begins!  I’ve been asked if this is a backdrop…if this is real…if I pasted her onto this background.  The answer to that is no…this is all 100% real!

Oh, the drama…LOVE it!  We had moved to OCF by this point (off camera flash for you non-photog folks) as the sun had all but set and it was getting dark fast… Las Vegas Child Portrait Photographer Lisa Holloway of LJHolloway Photography photographs a gorgeous young girl outdoors in Kingman, Arizona - near Las Vegas. Yes, this sunset is real too!  This is Arizona…we might have blistering hot summers and rattlesnakes galore, but we get the most amazing sunsets!

{Las Vegas Maternity Photographer | Las Vegas Child Photographer} Ronne’s Maternity Session

This sweet family has been with me since the very beginning of my business.  They brought their 5 week old baby girl to me when I was just getting my feet wet in the photography business.  They were my very first ‘stranger session’ and I was SO nervous.  I remember studying lighting and posing like a mad woman the week leading up to their baby’s newborn session.  At that time, I had zero clue that it was hard to do a ‘newborn’ session on a 5 week old.  :)  When the big day came, I quickly realized that I had NOTHING to worry about.  These are some of the most laid back, friendly, and downright wonderful people you could be lucky enough to meet.  I have fond memories of that session and meeting these amazing people.

Baby Nohl’s big birthday is approaching quickly, and we obsessively planned a ‘snowy maternity session’ for Ronne.  He is a long awaited blessing and I couldn’t be more thrilled for such a wonderful, loving family.  Little Nohl has no idea yet how lucky he is!

Ronne & family moved to the Phoenix area a few years ago, so we met in the middle near Flagstaff to do her maternity pictures.  This location was an absolute gem of a find.  I decided on the drive out (no pre-scouting was done due to the distance involved) that I wanted to find a grove of aspen trees in the snow.  I thought the white on white would make a very pretty backdrop to show off that gorgeous baby belly of her’s.  Nothing like a specific demand, huh?  As we pulled into Williams/Flagstaff area, we stumbled across a ranger station while exploring a back road and found a nice lady working on her pickup truck.  We got some great inside advice on where to find exactly what I was looking for.  Despite a blown tire on the drive (I am SO glad my husband was with me on this trip), we found the PERFECT spot for Ronne’s maternity pictures.  It is a wonderful thing to see a vision you had in your head for months beforehand come to life, and these pictures do that and more for me.  I am SO excited for this family and cannot wait to meet baby Nohl. <3

We were already finished with the session, when I saw the last minutes of golden light disappearing behind the horizon on the drive out.  I pulled off to the side of the road and we flagged them down to do a few last shots of sweet Lucienne.  So glad we did!
