My excitement and love for photography grows with every person I meet...every photo I take.

It brings me joy to capture your emotions, your laughter, and your moment with every frame.

Its your story. You are unique.

Let me be your visual record keeper.

a new decade.

What will this new year bring for eyefull photography? Hopefully a chance to improve my photography skills, learn some new techniques, meet some AWESOME and HELPFUL people in the industry, and of course, the most important, photograph YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES!

I am so thankful for all of you who helped boost my business this past fall. You have offered me encouragement and insight in ways that you do not know. It has been awesome getting to know your families as you let me into your life for a few hours to photograph you. I am so grateful that you trusted me enough to entrust your family memories with me. I have had the best time listening to the little things you say to each other during our time together. When I look at those pictures, I think back to what we were doing when it was captured...and I smile.

This new year, I pray that I can do the same. God has set a desire in my heart and has given me some raw skills in this area. God will move this business forward at a pace that is good for me, my family, and you.

I am currently taking bookings for January and beyond! I would love to photograph your family, your newborn, your one year old...your pregnancy, your engagement...just your everything! Contact me. Let's book a date and let's talk about the memories we can capture together.

My verse this year? Matthew 5:16, "In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."

Who knows...maybe this year, I might actually get in front of the lens.

Love you and I MEAN it! :)

the orchard, just about out of leaves until Spring....

21 December 2009
My lovely orchard has just about dropped all of its leaves until Spring. There were a few sprigs of green here and there. Nonetheless, the trees are lovely, all full of crags and gnarly; old. We were able to capture these fabulous photos of this family!

love this photo...

This is one of my favorites from the session with this family.

Mom's face is so candid and open! I love it. If I ever am privileged enough to have a "studio" I will probably hang this one in the gallery!

I just love these photos of baby girl. the tutu. the blanket. The Christmas tree in the background.

get an eyefull of the Estes!

So happy to shoot yet another family in the fabulous orchard. I also debuted a "new prop", and I think it was cute. Enjoy...

Here is the new prop! What do you think?

My favorite shot of the morning. It was "sisters" idea to recreate a photo she had of this same pose with her brothers a few years ago. It is definitely one of my favorites of the morning.

Always looking for details in my photos to bring to the foreground. I definitely love this photo of Mom and Dad's holding hands!

10 December 2009
K.C. has become a dear friend of mine here in Maricopa. It was my pleasure to photograph her family.

I was particularly happy to meet her husband. Just a few months ago, he became very sick and needed to be hospitalized. It took several days for the doctors to diagnose him and successfully treat his medical condition. Thankfully, it can be managed at home! This is probably one of my favorite pictures from this session.

OK, so this is the second time I have had the opportunity to photograph this little guy. Oh boy, he was not having me again! Is it me? My approach? Next time HE WILL SMILE...I think I need to work on photographing while standing on my head :)

These two brothers belong to a dear friend of mine. They are such a hoot together and I just love this photo of them up in a tree...since THAT is where they usually are...up in a tree (in trouble) :)

Here is a photo of my dear friend Amanda. She is such a wonderful lady and my life has been BLESSED to have her in it. She loves God, she loves her family and she loves me. I can often hear her voice in my head, her exact words, when I am going through a situation or I need to make a decision. She makes me laugh and she is a shoulder to cry on. I love her.

All four of Amanda amazing kids.

Sheesh! I better find one of James (husband). He is a wonderful man as well.

This couple is one that would do anything for you if they could.

fill your eyes with this....

We needed to retake the Caballeros Family photos because last week, it was too windy. While some of them came out nicely, the family photos were just too wind blown. problem! So we took our session back to the original venue. It was relaxed. It was fun. Below is one of my favorite shots.

This nugget is hard to pin down. Not even for a second would she stand still. So we had to get creative! What do you think?

an eyefull this Winter....

04 December 2009

Hey! don't think that just because it is getting colder outside, that we can't take great family and individual photos! On contrare! We certainly can...we just might need to get creative! Maybe a drop of rain or two might make a nice photo element wouldn't you say? Also, this would be a great time to schedule newborn photos and maternity photos. Maybe you can't use it, but you might know someone who can- gift certificates are available. Priced just right, eyefull will be a wonderful experience for you and those you love.

I just love red at Christmas time. The deeper, the better. This girls' mom made these headbands with these wonderful large flowers on them. I love them!!! I am hoping she will make one for my prop collection.

some thoughts

I am just sitting here editing some photos from this past weekend...cracking up and thanking God that I have this opportunity to practice an art I have wanted to practice for a long time now. I am so excited and I have such peace about moving forward with this. No matter where it takes me, or if I am "successful" by how the world judges "success" I am grateful. These families are putting their moments in my hands and expecting me to catch them when they are being serious and formal and when they are being silly. I hope I am able to do that again and again.

I pray before every session that God would just give me an eye for what I need to see and what I need to photograph. I pray for the families that I am able to capture that they would have a great time with me as well. I will never stop doing this.
