I wish I had all the time in the world to tell you this amazing family’s story! They are a walking testimony of God’s love and promises, including this miracle baby girl that is almost here! It was such a joy to capture such a special time in their lives, and I can’t wait to meet their sweet girl! Congrats Vargas family!
The last few Mondays (my day off of my big girl job), I’ve been intentional about being creative. It’s easy in the hustle of life to neglect life-giving practices…for me photography is a practice that brings me joy & inspires me! Lucky for me, I have two INCREDIBLY beautiful daughters. Don’t get me wrong…it’s not easy to photograph your own children. At the end of it I said outloud for the hundreth time, “Next time I’m paying someone!!” However, looking at these…even the silly ones…reminds me that they will only be little for a short time. I already feel like they’ve grown faster than I’m ready for them to. I’m constantly catching up to the realization that these little ladies will one day be…ladies. I’m so in awe of them both; so different and so amazing. They chose the posing for these haha! Without further ado…here is Hailey Grace at 7 years old and Alli Jane 6 weeks shy of 6!
Since moving to Arizona, I’ve been the second shooter at a number of weddings! This is a new niche for me, as I’m used to leading my own weddings! I LOVE to photograph couples, and I love the intensity of a capturing moments and emotions. As a second shooter, I am able to relax a little bit more and get my creative juices flowing! I love the dynamic of learning to shoot from different angles and with different lighting. This wedding was beautiful, and beautifully captured by Anita Shay Photography! I’m grateful to have played a small part in photographing these memories! Here are some of my favorites from the day! Enjoy!
