Marie and Mike live in Canada and were hoping to have their wedding in Sedona this past year.  Unfortunately, that didn't work out so they had a small wedding in Canada instead and later decided to take a trip here to have their photos done at Red Rock Crossing.  It started out as a portrait shoot since they included their adorable (and I mean ADORABLE) daughter, Ava, and quickly morphed into a trash the dress shoot for the whole family.  As Marie saw it, she was going to leave the dress behind since she would have no need for it in the future ... hence, I gained a dress for future model shoots - THANKS MARIE :-)!

OK, I'm back ... :-)!  I had to take a little time away from blogging to finish up some deadlines, so my apologies to those of you who have been patiently waiting to see your photos.  Here goes.

 

Melissa and Greg were married back in April.  They came from the Valley to beautiful Sedona for their wedding and it rained the entire day.  They made the best of it and still had a beautiful and wonderful day, but I felt bad that they were unable to take full advatage of the red rock scenery photographically because of the weather.  Given this, I offered for them to come back up on another day to do a shoot.  They happily excepted but wanted to keep it casual, opting not to get dressed back up in their wedding day attire.

 

So several weeks ago they made the trip up and we headed out to Red Rock Crossing.  Though there were scattered storms around, it was beautiful in West Sedona and they had a great shoot.  We just want to thank you both for being so wonderful to work with and hang out with ... and thank you for the card - it was extremely thoughtful and very unexpected!!  Enjoy!

Kimberly and Matthew were married in June 2008 and we photographed their wedding in Sedona.  They recently had a new baby (in addition to the two beautiful children they have already) and contacted us to do family portraits of them, along with their extended family.  So a couple of weeks ago we headed down to Phoenix to do the shoot.  It was extremely hot (as would be expected in Phoenix in the middle of the summer) but very productive.  We did the posed groupings, but spent the majority of the time taking candid shots of the kids - and the adults - playing in the water.  We got splashed more than once, but boy was it refreshing :-)!  Thanks for having us ... enjoy!

After leaving Florida, I headed to North Carolina to visit my family.  I have been here almost two weeks now and am not ready to make my departure later this week ... but alas, all good things must come to an end.  I have no family in AZ - they all live in NC - so it is always a joy to come home ... though I don't get to do it nearly enough.

Louie, my mom's Westie, has made appearances on the blog before, but it is time to introduce our new addition ... drum roll please ... Gizmo!!  Gizmo was in need of a better home than he came from (though not from lack of the previous owner caring, which is why she gave him up.)  He came to my mom's house in pretty poor condition, but is now beautiful and thriving ... and really, really sweet.  He was advertised as a Westie, but we don't really think so.  I personally think he is a mix between a Schnauzer and a Westie.  We will find out soon though when we have a DNA test done ... we are just so curious.  Here are a few photos we took of them for St. Patty's Day :-).

This is Gizmo.  What do you think he is?

He is adorable....and I agree with you, he's got schnauzer written all over him! That breed testing is some cutting edge stuff so it's really cool regular vets are able to offer it now -- I'd love to hear how it turns out!

Last week Tammy called me to see if I could do a last minute Christmas Family Portrait/ Infant shoot for her, her husband, Jonathon, and their one month old baby, Ryder.  Given she was a referal from a past client and the fact that I can never turn down the chance to capture a baby in it's first month of life ... of couse I said yes :-).  I photographed this shoot in two segments - the infant shoot of Monday and the family portrait shoot on Friday.  The weather was already headed downhill during the infant shoot on Monday (when we had orginally scheduled the session) so, wanting to do the family portraits outside, we decided to wait for Friday when we knew the storm would pass and hopefully leave a winter wonderland in it's wake.  It did just that!
