C & C -I- Children Photography

I discovered the worst part of photography. You are always BEHIND the camera. Actually I don't mind it at all until I needed/wanted to send out Christmas cards. I finally realized. I didn't need me and my husband in the pictures, I could sent out equally as cute Christmas cards with pictures of JUST my daughters. I took them to the park in their Christmas Dresses (minus the tights because I still need to find them) and did a Mini 10 minutes shoot with them. I was happy with the results and I cant wait to pick up our cards tomorrow. Here is a sample of some of the pictures I took:

"B" Family -I- Family/ Holiday Photography

I had the honor of taking my brothers family photos for their holiday cards. My nephew was NOT feeling the photos at first. But he eventually came around. And we got some really cute pictures! We found the best Holiday photo area in Avondale. It was picture perfect:

Ostrus Family -I- Family Photography

I went out with the Ostrus Family. Mommy I have known for at least 3 1/2 years, since she has been pretty much the ONLY doctor I will take my girls to. We love her. She just had her first baby and it was fun hanging out with the. Baby Ostrus wasn't a BIG fan of me and my camera. But I still enjoyed taking his pictures:

Marshall Family -I- Maternity Photography

A friend of mine is expecting her first baby. I remember being pregnant with my first daughter, I always wished I had gotten maternity pictures done with her. I was invited to her baby shower, I wanted to do something special for her, I did a complimentary mini maternity session. We met at my favorite park for a quick 30 minute session and we ended up with A LOT of pictures!! Enjoy:

Big Exciting News!!

A friend of mine, Amanda, who I just did pictures for recently called me today and asked me

"How would you like to go on a helicopter ride?"

"I've never done it before but I think it would be fun....WHY?"

She then explains how she was looking at the City of Glendale Fire Department Calendar proof. SOMEHOW the department got a hold of my picture of their helicopter "Halo" from the Glendale Fire Prevention Parade.

She explained to him that I was the one who took the pictures and they needed my permission to use it.

Of course I said YES! I am very supportive of the public Safety departments. I told her my only terms were a copy of the calendar and photo credit. She told me the department would like to take Daniel and I up for a ride in the Helicopter. I have to get them a print release and then it should be in the calendar.


Here is the picture:

Charissa -I- High School Senior Portraits

Charissa and her mom were such characters. I had the best time with them taking pictures. These pictures were not only to celebrate her senior year of high school BUT she just had her braces taken off and she turned 17 just two days before her pictures!!! And pretty is this girl! Congratulations on your senior year, Charissa!!!

Vanessa and Matt -I- Wedding Photography

Vanessa and Matt came to me by referral. I went to High School with both of them but never knew them. This wasn't a "traditional" wedding. Yet it was a lot of fun. Vanessa and Matt got married a year ago but didn't get their wedding pictures or reception they wanted and deserved. So they rented the tuxes, bought the dresses (BTW she had the most gorgeous wedding dress EVER!) and flowers, and I captured their wedding party pictures. They are a truly lovely couple and I hope I can continue a friendship with them in the future:

P.s. Megan if you read this...thanks for the Referral! :)
