I got to take some brief shots of luci and her friends before they went to prom...b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l girls and some sharp lookin' guys! can't wait to hear how the rest of the night went!

I like the shadows of this one...

rockstars :)

the token jumping shot...turned out cute I think :)

jed may have gotten the highest jump, but he accidentally landed on luci's orchid...I love how everyone is making fun of him in this pic :)

crazy to see him grow him and love his heart more! God is going to do big things, I know it...

the lovely ladies...kiana makes me laugh :)

my girls. :)

luci's date...

she is simply TOO beautiful....

you gotta notice the accessories...

playing with blur and the jump shot...wish I could freeze time sometimes...thanks for letting me come guys!

another awesome afternoon with "my luci". she is captivatingly beautiful and had the amazing idea of "daisies" for her VERY her...she reminds me, in moments, of an early drew barrymoore...I love her and am so proud of the woman that she is! I'm so glad I got to take these of her!

I love the profile of the sun in this one...

sassy :)

has a sixpence none the richer feel to it, I think...

I love feet and I love this vintage effect!

I got to spend time with ashley, a highland high school senior, this last weekend! Amazing accomplished young lady and an aspiring fashion designer! Some day in the near future I know I will be seeing her name in Vogue as being listed as the next freshest and exciting young designer! Thanks Ashley for letting me capture these!

amazing facial features...

wind seems to not be my friend lately...but it adds a bit I think :)

this picture of her reminds me so much of the 1960's...classic timeless beauty...I can almost hear the song " last..."

I loved taking shots of wade this last week! He's a gangsta at heart but has a soft likable edge to him...almost like a throwback to James Dean...Thanks for the opportunity, Wade!

he had a seriously wicked ride...and jacket :)

bryce, debbie, logan + cameron!

Thursday, April 09, 2009

I had a super fun + busy afternoon with bryce, debbie + the boys this last saturday! The boys are SO full of life and literally speed! Which is surprising considering that Logan just got his cast off two weeks ago...just proves that determination will always win over pain! Thank you SO much for letting me capture these!

Logan's "catch me if you can" look...TOO cute!

Debbie was super smart for bringing bubbles! Cameron loved them for a little bit, at least!

brothers...too sweet...

Debbie wins the award for most active mom! And for looking the best while keeping up with the boys! seriously pretty lady!

and Bryce wins the award for most kid catches in a row...great workout!

when I look at pictures like this, I always imagine what they will be like when they're 18 + 16...too cute of boys now...going to be heartbreakers one day!

courtney :)

Saturday, April 04, 2009

so this weekend I got to take courtney out for her senior pictures...this a girl near and dear to my heart! she helped me practically raise micah and maddie in their early years and it was SUPER sweet for me to be able to see the finished product of her high school years...this is a girl that can seriously hold her own in life...she's studying to be a fire fighter with a focus on the medical side of it...she can shoot a gun just a good as any guy her age and is one of the most stunningly beautiful girls I know! I can not wait to see what huge things God has in store for her and am SO privelaged to have gotten to take these pictures!

unique, one-of-a-kind her!

it was downtown phoenix so we had somewhat of an audience at times...a lot of people whistling, and for good reason!

oh, yes...she's going to be a firefighter...and I'm sure I know a couple of guys who would start a fire just to have her show up!

the wind was something else this day...the kind of day that you really just have to roll with it...and courtney did AMAZING!

my personal favorite...beautiful, beautiful girl :)
