Salt River & Red Mountain

This photo represents a great evening out with my family not too far out of town. This one may end up on our "Arizona gallery wall".

A Family Tradition

Most families like to have updated photos taken together. This great family asked me in May 2015 to take their photos and this year they asked me again, which I take as a compliment. I enjoy the experience it gives me. I realize that posing people (especially men that don't want to be posed) is one of my many photographer weaknesses. I need to be in control enough to compose the balance and positioning of the people I am photographing and not worry too much about some individual's lack of desire to be in the photo shoot. Overall, I am very pleased with the images we captured together last Saturday at the Mesa Temple.

Nature Beauty

There's something so low stress about photographing a pair of butterflies. And flowers, those are easy-going targets as well. I love being in nature's raw beauty.

My husband and I went on a day trip together to celebrate our 9th Anniversary. We went caving near Oracle, AZ. Here is our traditional tri-pod anniversary trip photo. 

A Mesa Temple Wedding!

This was my first time taking wedding photos and I enjoyed it so much, even though the stress of it was almost too much for me. This couple was so carefree and wonderful, a perfect match for my inexperience.
We started their couple photos around 7:20am, their sealing was at 9am and I took photos of them exiting the temple together and several family and group photos (both candid and posed) until about 10:30am. It was a beautiful morning and I am excited about the images we captured.
