      LOVE this idea! I tried doing the “lawn marbles” when it snowed, but it apparently didn’t get cold enough, so we ended up with ice bowls, which was still pretty cool! My son is going to LOVE this! Thanks!ReplyCancel

    Phoenix Family and Child Photographer- Searching for Locations

    Other than photographing your actually family session, part of my job as a photographer is also making sure I have options for your location based on the look you were going for. Many families, especially those from out of town, prefer the natural desert Phoenix landscape. And why not, we are in Arizona! The Phoenix...

Not that I don’t like black and white, I really do.I just always feel like Ihave a more difficult time converting in Photoshop. It just...

      • BrendenFebruary 5, 2015 - 2:01 pm

        Color photos are amazing but black and white photography just has this amazing mood.It always feels more “artsy”. I think converting an image to black and white removes all the distractions and you can really focus on the tones and subject of the photos. What gorgeous black and white actions they really showcase your gorgeous photography.ReplyCancel

        I agree with you…color is so amazing, and your color photography is gorgeous! But a great black and white can be just as spectacular. These actions do look awesome. There is a great variety to fit any feel you want. It may inspire me to go on a black and white kick for a while!ReplyCancel

      Phoenix Family and Child Photographer {Photography in Ahwatukee, Scottsdale, Chandler and Surrounding Areas}

      This was a super fun family session to photograph for so many reasons. First of all, it was not a desert session! Don’t get me wrong, I love the desert as a backdrop for photos, but I do a lot of desert family photography sessions here in Arizona. For this session however, I was...
