THIS. This is everything. Birth is magical, healing, empowering. This and so much more. Both parents were nervous about wanting a v-bac and dad helping deliver the baby, but they all three made the perfect team. I can't even put into words how amazing it is to capture these two saying their vows to one another previously and then today supporting them throughout this labor of love. What a beautiful family of four! (Big sis was home with grandma). Congrats, you two! YOU DID IT!!! <3
And that’s a wrap! 🎁 I just finished my last photo session of the year and I am extremely grateful for the wonderful people I’ve met this year as well as seeing my beautiful returning families! Thank you everyone and happy holidays 🎉🎄 Now it’s time for some much needed self care 🧘🏻♀️
2020 couples!!!! I have a super fun give-a-way that I’m going to announce on NEW YEARS DAY and I’m gidy over-the-moon ecstatically gleeful about it! Stay tuned 💋💋💋💋💋 (tell all your newly engaged or soon to be engaged friends to follow)

I’m waiting for someone to make me cupcakes that look like this cactus outside of El Chorro 😂 Doesn’t it look delicious???
One thing about Arizona sunsets is that they demand attention! So much so that sometimes you just have to pull over take a shot and enjoy it no matter where you are! 🌄🌆

I am pretty ready for our staycation this week! We have a friend coming and we cannot wait (bring the Zephyrhills @ton_ami_fou.tyetye )! Anyway, I will not be working (for the most part) all week, but I will be available to answer any inquiries or questions my couples have! So basically everything except shooting this week 😂😂! As we end this year I know I will have a lot to say to thank all of you, but here it is for the first time, THANK YOU to all of my couples for making my first FULL year in NM a huge success! The amount people I have meet and worked with this year has blown me away! Keep supporting local and the artists that you love! 🖤

Arizona has been nothing but good to us. Here’s some shots of an impromptu audition/monologue session with Kenneth and Simon adjudicating. (Is that a Hamilton logo pose?) photo: @giligetz
as I writee this, the clock reads 7:04am, and the van is quiet except for the sound of the small flickering flame on the propane heater. condensation is slowly dripping off the windows + walls, and beyond the fogged up windshield, the sun is starting to rise. I want to paint, but I also want to just sit + enjoy this fleeting moment for a while longer, so I do.
when I finally open the door to boil water for coffee, I see pink clouds stretched across the sky and I smile. Between the mountains in front of me and the birds singing their morning songs all around me, I feel an immense sense of peace gently coat me; I am exactly where I should be. -mornings in the van ☀️
Share a memory of a location you shot where you had the entire place to yourself? I want to get back here and do this again! #fbf#flashbackfriday
So the other night we took off to the Grand Canyon in search of this viewpoint we had been obsessed w/ for some time. I didn’t know what it was called, so I pored over maps until I figured it out; we took off to pick up permits from the Navajo Office in Cameron, Az..
We walked into the offices at 3:45 pm, but I guess we were wrong and it was actually 4:45; the Navajo nation is on Mtn time. The gentleman opened the door for us and when we asked for a permit, he issued it as well as gave us a map with very difficult directions on how to access the edge of the canyon. we didn’t know that other than us, the canyon had been closed to visitors since May... (we found this out after the fact and even called the office to verify..)
We very happily took off to our destination and although made many stops along the way for photos, arrived to the edge of the canyon in plenty of time before the sun went down; we couldn’t see it because of storms but it hadn’t set yet.
We backed the vehicle up to the center edge of the canyon where we could sit in the back of the vehicle & still adjust our cameras.. we could see clouds rolling in but we’re hoping they would clear by the time the milkyway rose.. I let a timelapse run while I waited for the next few hours and we fell asleep in the back. About 330 am, I checked my shots for a slight glimpse of the MW... I got nothing good, but as blue hour arrived, so did clear skies! I had this very short opp to shoot the Milky Way perfectly aligned almost west at the center of the canyon as the light was starting to brighten the sky. I LOVE how prominent Mars is on this image because of the clouds! Lower pano I shot at am Blue Hour.
I shot a 2 frame horizontal orientation vertical pano with 20 stacked images in each.
SKY: 20 images stacked
Foreground: 20 images stacked

A wedding day dream!!! ✨ When we met up with a Christine + Marques for coffee we instantly felt this sweetness from them two - they have kindness in their eyes and smile almost constantly - and when we asked questions they talked with joy about their life together. They love each other so deeply and from that it flows out to everyone around them. What a cute duo to watch/photograph!!
