{Heat Index = **120 degrees** for this beautiful family’s photos}

But the heat and humidity didn’t stop this family from looking amazing.  Grandma was in town and leaving the next day, so we braved the hot weather and I must say – it’s the fastest session I’ve ever done with 2 locations.  You can’t even tell this family was dying in the heat- they did awesome.  I on the other hand learned what sweatbands for your forehead and wrists were invented.  I need a good pair and I’m not ashamed to where them (behind the camera) if it will help from sweat dripping off my brow  LOL.  But seriously, I might consider getting a pair ;-) Here’s a little peak at our session!

Note:  My calendar is filling up for fall.  If you haven’t booked and wanted to you may want to do it soon before all spots are gone.  All of September is booked,  there’s one date left in October, and a few dates in November is still available.  Go to the ‘contact’ page on my website to inquire about a session availabilities.

{itty bitty bundle of cuteness}

A while ago, I was lucky to have the opportunity to photograph this handsome little newborn and his beautiful mommy, Haleigh.  This is her 4th child and only boy – isn’t he adorable!  He’s absolutely perfect!  Haleigh is a friend of mine and also a talented photographer right hear in AZ too.  She’s beautiful on the inside and out and I’m so happy we met.  She and her little boy were fun to photograph – isn’t she stunning?!  She reminds me a little of Denise Richards….= gorgeous :) Anyway, here’s the overdue post of Haleigh and her little bundle of cuteness!
