a win-win

For my next post, I wanted to share one of my favorite family shoots of 2019.  I had a blast photographing the Avyazian Family once before and so I was excited when they contacted me again last year.  Mom and Dad were celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary and wanted to commemorate the milestone with a fun family shoot in and around Montrose, one of their favorite places to hang out as a family, all of which I thought was such a lovely idea!  Incorporating a place that is special to a family always makes the photos better and, having grown up in the area myself, shooting there was all sorts of nostalgic for me.

In addition to the setting, I loved all the variety we managed to get in the final collection of photos, which I think helps tell the family’s story in that moment in time while also capturing the personalities of the girls and the family’s connection.  When I can get all of that into my photos, I call that a win-win!

Party of Five

It’s been a while since I managed to get a blog post together but I’m resolved to be better at sharing my work here in 2020!  For my first post of the year, I thought it made sense to share my first shoot of the year with the Bell Family, who recently welcomed two little ones to their family.  I have loved photographing their family and their sweet daughter Ruby since she was just a baby, so it was a treat to see her in the role of big sister.  Between their beautiful home and so many sweet moments to capture, our shoot was an inspiring way to start the year.

Sara & Jason | Kaanapali Maui Wedding

Back in January, I had the honor of traveling to Maui to photograph Sara and Jason’s destination wedding.  I know we still have a few months to go, but I think it’s safe to say it was a highlight of my year. Their day was relaxed, joyful and full of the most amazing light… just the way any wedding in Hawaii should be!

And, I am excited to finally be able to share the photos now that it’s been featured on Intimate Weddings!  You can check that out here.
