Sayleen & Gary’s Old Pueblo Desert Engagement Session● Tucson, Arizona

He gathered old photos of the two of them, remembering the early years of their relationship. Gary wanted to make something special for his long time girlfriend, Sayleen- a scrapbook depicting their 10 year journey together was the perfect way to show their history… a history filled with many adventures, many twists and turns and ups and downs. They had so many memories marked by sweet laughs and joyful times. As he was preparing to make Sayleen’s anniversary gift, he did so with the intention that this would be one she would never forget… Continue reading

Happy New Year, friends!

After a little break for the holidays and more than enough holiday treats in my belly to last the entire year of 2017, I return to the blog with so much thankfulness that I could explode with love! A few years ago, I never thought I would be living out my dreams of being a photographer and loving my job so much, connecting with such amazing people, and getting to document such special moments. And now… I am! I feel like Fearless, Speak Now and Red Era Taylor Swift winning an award! hahaha Continue reading

With an estimated population of 1,394,928, San Diego is the eighth-largest city in the United States. They were each there for different reasons, Kristina’s reason only lasting the weekend.

Ohhhhh you guys, after hearing that Laura noticed a handsome stranger in church one day from the corner of her eye and HOW Abraham proposed to Laura years later, I knew this session was going to be filled with pure love and joy. Laura and Abraham’s love story is definitely one for the books. It’s one of those stories that you know will be passed down through generations of their family where they will each tell it differently every time, giggling at each other’s version of what happened. And they even have an amazing keepsake of HOW he proposed, which I’ll explain in a bit.

I have many favorite poets that I turn to when I need some general life inspiration, but Khalil Gibran always seems to tug at my heart strings first. Perhaps it’s because it brings back nostalgic memories of reading Khalil Gibran poetry with my best friend, Lauren, when she was living in Flagstaff, or because his words always seem to resonate with what I’m processing through at that particular time that I’m reading something of his. Whatever the case, when I was with Rox and Fer for their session, getting to know their personalities and a bit of their story reminded me of one of Gibran’s poems and I would like to share that today.
