Courtney + Robert

I’ve been busy as a Christmas elf on Christmas eve lately, trying to wrap up a lot of things before Christmas and New Years, there is still A LOT to do.  Lot of new plans for next year, new resolutions and goals and maybe even some new looks for the branding coming soon :)   For all of you that have been following my blog and my work over the past couple of years, thank you so much for all your support (and blog comments)!  I’m looking forward to some big plans for 2010 and I can’t wait to get started.  First day back at the studio today (which also happens to be my 4 year wedding anniversary!!!!) and already getting some new inquiries from what I imagine to be the new brides that got engaged over the holiday break.  Welcome to the blog :)

Not to steal any thunder from Courtney + Roberts amazing pics, but I am IN LOVE with their session.  They came from Philadelphia for the holidays and luckily we had time to fit them in for their engagement portraits.  New locations, new ideas, old locations, new ideas . . . . always new and fresh here :) Robert is a commercial pilot so we had to start at a small airport just next to the Tucson Airport, then meandered over to the airport for some more relaxed and fun portraits, and topped off this mountain of an engagement session at the University of Arizona.  Hard to go wrong with anything, but I wish we had a tad more daylight to work with.

I can’t wait for their wedding this coming October!!  Thanks again Cournety & Robert for bringing the fun and drowning the camera with awesomeness.

It was a small plane, I could barely fit in the backseat

Saundra + Michael

I had a great afternoon working with my friend Saundra and her fiance Michael photographing their awesome engagement portraits.  We had a great time having some football fun at a local high school and then headed down to the UA for some more amazing portraits.  I really can’t wait for their wedding because they are just so fun to be around!  Never a dull moment :)   I definitely was able to step outside the box on some of these and they just went with the flow . . . I love it when my clients let me do what I like to do :)   Makes my job so much more fun!  I’ll tell you this, Michael is a pretty lucky guy and I’m so happy for the both of them!

It’s also been great working with Saundra’s family.  Her dad is a high-end custom home contractor: he builds some pretty SWEET homes.  Here is one of the homes I photographed a couple of weeks ago that he built, designed by Kevin B Howard Architects:

Carolina | Senior Portraits

I love it when my senior clients bring their personality and fun to their sessions!  I had a great time working with Carolina on Monday, she definitely brought her A-game and despite less than admirable weather, we created some awesome senior portraits that her and her family will LOVE forever.  I captured some of my new personal favorites that will be up the studio soon!  Carolina came down from San Manuel and enjoys a wide variety of different music, styles and fashion taste.  Although we went to the downtown area for her portraits, I always make each session unique and different in every way possible, no one wants the same images that someone else has.  Thanks again for such an awesome session (and thanks to your sister Monica as well!)

If any of you know Carolina, leave a comment below and tell her how much you love her portraits!  If she gets more than 25 comments, she’ll get a cool special gift from our studio :)   Enjoy!

Love the shape/space of this one, added a retro polaroid finish for kicks :)
