The McAtee Family | Surprise, Arizona Lifestyle Family Photographer

This beautiful mama is a local photographer and as you can imagine it gives me butterflies every single time! When she told me she wanted me to capture her family I was of course honored, as I always am when another photographer trusts me to photograph their family’s moments.

I was immediately drawn to their love and connection and how truly REAL they were together. We just played the entire time, and the boys found rocks for their dog, ran in the sunshine, and embraced each other’s company. I was completely in my element as I watched them explore and have fun together.

I love their images for so many reasons, but the main reason is how you can FEEL all the love between them. Here are some favorites from capturing this season of life for them.

Thank you Courtney for allowing me to capture your sweet family <3

A Day in the Life | Hazeltine Family | Scottsdale, Arizona Documentary Photographer

I first met Allyse at the One Family Two Ways workshop and was so excited when she invited me over to document a morning in the life of her family. As I accompanied them throughout their morning, they made some yummy chocolate chip pancakes, snuggled, read books, colored a picture to add to her art wall, and we ended at their favorite location near their house where they played with their two dogs.

Allyse told me,  “I love Day in the Life Sessions. They are my favorite to shoot, so it’s nice to have some of my own family. We haven’t had any family photos in a while, and I’m rarely in the photos since I’m usually taking them, so I wanted to have some photos with all 3 of us in them. I love the genuine moments and connections that are captured in Day in the Life sessions!”

Thank you Allyse for letting me into your lives for a day and getting to witness the immense love and beauty of your life. Click here to view their story in motion and watch the video from their morning!

The Valluzzo Family | Phoenix, AZ Lifestyle Family Photographer

Earlier this summer I had the amazing privilege of attending the One Family Two Ways workshop with Courtney from Inloveness Photography and Sally from SallyKate Photography along with many other talented photographers. If you didn’t know, Courtney is who documented my family right after my son was born and when I found out about this opportunity I knew I had to go. We had the opportunity to document this adorable family’s story and spent the day cooking, playing outside, reading, and of course there always have to be snuggles involved. As a mama, these kinds of things make my heart happy, that’s for sure.
