<![CDATA[If you don't know who Becky Higgins and Project Life are, you need to check them out. Becky has been a master in the memory keeping industry for years! Check her out at @beckyhiggins or www.beckyhiggins.com and her project life app. You might not know this about me, but I used to teach scrapbook classes years ago. I have always loved photo taking and photo keeping! I'm a little slower on the keeping part on my own personal photos but you know the saying, the shoe maker's children rarely have shoes! Right?! Sadly that's a truth. I'm trying to be better.
Becky recently reached out to me and asked me if I would share some tips for their newly released podcast "Tips for a Successful Photo session".
You can hear the podcast here. And read the show notes here.
I share a lot of things with my clients in my session guide and as we set up our sessions, but thought I would post some of them here too:
This is what I shared with Becky as tips from a photographer’s point of view (and they shared a lot on their podcast too):
Hope this helps you too!]]>
Another session featured. So excited about this summer session. Being an Arizona girl, I love all things desert but I also love all things beach and the challenge in putting together an elopement here was super fun. Thanks to an amazing style team for sharing all of their talents, and of course, to our awesome bride and groom Austin and Audra. Here are a few of my favorites from the session but you can see the featured on their wedding blog here.:
All the warm and happy feels right now!

<![CDATA[I'm so excited to share this styled session from the spring. We've been recently featured on The Coordinated Bride wedding blog. You can see the feature here.
I’m not gonna lie, looking back at how lush and bright the desert was a few months ago kind of makes me long for the cooler temperatures again. If you’re not from our beautiful state, you’re probably already dying of heat. But this session will remind you that the other eight months of the year are beautiful. Wildflowers mixed in with saguaros, mountains, rocks and cactus in beautiful light is one of the prettiest things you’ll see here. And the bonus here: a beautiful model, beautiful tablescape, beautiful florals…a cute little baby chick!
