I was ecstatic to be commissioned to capture images for Cari Slings and their recent launch of a wrap. Babywearing is important to me, as I carried both my babies in wraps and slings for years and saw the benefits first hand! Cari Slings is a family-owned and WAHM-run business that has a ton of knowledge in babywearing and a large following. What an honor to use my photographic vision to represent this company!
Barb and Nando wed in a scenic desert oasis in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was splashed with bits of vibrant color, sweet puppy dogs, and an adorable flower girl and ring bearer! There was a happy and serene mood the entire time as three different musicians and bands entertained the guests with amazing musicality. Congratulations, and thank you for including me in the celebration!
These two are so sweet and kind, they came together from different parts of the world to wed. The groom not only became a husband, but he welcomed the role of father during the ceremony as well. Talk about tears! It was a perfectly-planned wedding organized and styled by Desiree at Without a Hitch for a couple and family coming together from different parts of the world. I highly recommend Desiree, the Stillwell House, flowers by Evergreen Floral, and DJ Andy at Satyr Entertainment! You can see more from their wedding in my portfolio!
A lovely family affair held in the Pinnacle Peak area at the Savoy Opera House! There was dancing, there was a merry-go-round, it was awesome!
Happy Labor Day!! Mothers all across the nation gathered to raise awareness for birth rights. These are photos from the Tucson, AZ location. Way to go, moms (and dads)! Thank you for supporting our cause! Check out ImprovingBirth.org for more information!
I had the honor to photograph a wedding at a Temecula, CA winery this summer. Can you ask for more beautiful light or backdrop?!
I'd like to share one of my favorite pieces of camera equipment.
No, its not a lens or a strap.
Its my Kelly Moore bag! The Mimi style in gray, to be exact.
I needed something that didn't scream "I have thousands of dollars worth of electronic goodies in here!" and this camera purse really fit the bill. It enables me to carry my camera EVERYWHERE, which has increased my practice time and therefore my skills! I can throw diapers, snacks, and lipgloss in, and still feel that my DSLR is safe and sound in the middle pocket. When I catch the perfect sunlight streaming over my daughter's hair, I can grab my camera in no time for the shot! The outside zipper pockets are fabulous for SDHC cards, I use one side for empty and the other for full cards while shooting weddings. Speaking of weddings, I shoot with this bag attached to me. It fits my 3 most used lenses, my extra camera body, flash, batteries, most of what I need for running around during the ceremony. I've had it for almost a year now, and it still looks brand new.
I get so many compliments, and when I show off the inside padded compartments, I love the look of WOW! on faces.
Thank you, Kelly Moore, for designing such a wonderful product for the artist/mom/business woman in me! I feel stylish, :)
I really wish I could put into words what happens during a first dance. The bride and groom embrace, now as one entity made through an exchange of vows, intensely connected to one another, and dance to sentimental music in front of their closest friends and family. Did that work?! I cry every time. And then I cry again when I process the photos a week later....
Take a peek at what I've been photographing!
