First we had each other, than we had you and now we have everything...

Oh, baby! So much goodness in a family of three during their first 3 years of parenthood. The love was real here and it overpowered from these two on to this beautiful baby girl.

Well you all, this session turned out beautifully! If you were there you wouldn't of thought much turned out but you know what? FAMILY SESSION CAN BE LIKE THAT! As a photographer of almost a decade, I know that and that's why I know what to do and how to prepare for myself for potential mishaps to make sure that I do the job you hired me to do.

Probably 7 out of 10 times I hear about the stress families go through before their family session with a professional photographer. As a Mother who gets family photos done every year, I can concede as some type of mishap always happens and it never fails, but it's part of the fun. However, when you show up to your family session with me set all of that aside... It's time for you to be with your family and to forget about the world and to allow me to capture you all how I see you.

Poor Baby K, she wasn't feeling so good and was a little grumpy for her photoshoot but she was so fun to explore with and just the cutest. She has the most gorgeous eyes, ever! Although, I aim for a good amount of smiles and looking at the camera when it's not possible I go for the all natural fly on the wall approach. My secret; I find a sweet spot at a location and I ask families to do natural things i.e. throw rocks, look at the scenery (water, ducks, mountains etc..), play, walk and hold hands, dance and so on...

The location of this session was at the Riparian Preserve in Gilbert, Arizona. I first came to this location for my own family portraits for my Christmas card and at first glance, I didn't think it was much however going back with a second eye I really liked the variety it had to offer. The locations I use often have lots of variety and are convenient especially for families with small children and The Preserve was perfection. Want to see more of this gorgeous session? Scroll down.
