{Las Vegas Child Photographer} Misty Beaches

We recently took a family vacation to my beautiful home state of Washington.  While there, we spent time at the ocean (Kalaloch Beach), the beautiful rainforests, and Grandma & Papa’s house.  It was such a wonderful and much needed trip for the whole family!  While there, I couldn’t resist setting up a fun shoot highlighting the cool, misty tones of the Pacific coast.  Charlize and Parker were my little models for a day of shooting and they were absolutely amazing!  They traveled quite a ways for this shoot and it was such a pleasure working with them.  It was also a lot of fun for me to get to work with such vastly different environmental factors and colors than what I am used to here in the Arizona desert.

Here are a few of my favorite images from this session.  :)  The cool, misty, pastel tones of the beach were stunningly beautiful to me…

{Las Vegas Family Photographer} My Beautiful Children

I’ve always been taken with simple, soulful portraits taken with beautiful lighting.  What started out as some solo images of my youngest little girl, Octavia (I may share these later) morphed into a sisters and brothers series.  I am absolutely in love with both of these images and YES, they will be printed and hung with pride on my wall.  I imagine them as heirloom pieces that their grandchildren, great grand children and beyond will look at to see what their ancestors looked like.  I wanted to share.  Those of you who have followed my work for some time will probably be amazed at how much they’ve grown over the years.  I often get asked how I manage it all – 10 children and a photography business.  The fact of the matter is that I have had to make some serious cutbacks, and am now only taking the VERY rare client session and focusing on my family (priority #1) and my teaching.  And because I also get asked for names and ages – here you go!  From oldest to youngest we have Clint (17 next month), Calista (15 1/2), Damien (13), Theron (11), Adrian (8 in August), Quentin (7 next month), Camille (6), Octavia (5 TODAY!), Elliott (2 1/2), and Gabriel (1 tomorrow!).  I love images that give you a glimpse of someone’s soul, and I think that is why I am so drawn to these.  Thank you for taking the time to look.  This is my pride and joy, right here.  :)

{Las Vegas Child Photographer} Mia

I’ll be moving in a new direction with my photography and only shooting sessions that make my heart sing.  I couldn’t be more thrilled with these fairy inspired images of Mia!  I’ve always loved fantasy and fairy tales, magic and enchanted forests, secrets whispered in the wind and colors painted by mother nature.  These images were so much fun for me to create!  Mia was the perfect little model.  It was also nice to get out of the heat of the desert and up into a higher elevation and greener environment for this shoot.  Thank you SO much Mia and family for helping me out with these images.  I am so excited to be putting the fun and creativity back into my photography.  I fell in love with photography many years ago, but was slowly losing my passion for it.  I am reclaiming that love and taking things in the direction dictated by my heart.  I hope you will all join me on this journey. :)
