Kara & CJ | wedding at inside the bungalow

Earlier this year I had the honor of photographing Kara and CJ's wedding in Mesa, Arizona. The venue, Inside the Bungalow, was absolutely perfect and enhanced the close, intimate feel of the entire evening. The ceremony was so moving, especially the exchange of rings where they included their young daughter, Grace. The day was filled with laughter, tears of joy, hugs, smiles, fun and so much love. CONGRATULATIONS to the happy couple!

A huge shout out to my two fabulous sidekicks for the day, Monica of Monica Stanley Photography and Lynn of Lynn Indrizzo Photography. You ladies are a dream to work with and so so talented. Thank you!!

Meet Lily | scottsdale newborn photographer

I've photographed more baby boys than baby girls, so you can imagine how excited I was to photograph this little beauty. She was sweet, angelic, and one of the most photogenic newborns I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Congrats, Nate & Ash, on this beautiful new addition to your family!!!

Fab Fridays | hello fall!

Fall... hands-down my favorite time of year. Always has been. From the changing colors to the crispness in the air to the return of football. But most importantly, to the return of my beloved fall wardrobe. :) We welcome back the boots, sweaters, scarves and all the fabulous layers. LOVE it!!!
Fall perfection: boot, jeans, sweater. Yum!  {link}
Here are a few of my fall fashion faves (thank you, Pinterest!)

Jacquie & Brian | scottsdale maternity photographer

Our sweet friends, Jacquie and Brian, are expecting their first child literally any minute now! So I wanted to share some of the images from their maternity session before this little bambino officially enters the world. Seriously, can Jacquie be any more stunning in these pics? I think not.

CONGRATS, you two!!! We are so excited for you and can't wait to meet the new addition. :)

Fab Fridays | my first refashion!

Everyone, meet Mabel. She is my new best friend.
Mabel, isn't she so pretty? 
Right up there with photography, fashion is my passion. I'm a Project Runway junkie and secretly hope that one day I'll be good enough to apply for the show (trust me, I've got a long way to go, but I like to dream big).  I'm also an avid follower of fashion blogs like Kendi Everyday (LOVE her!), M loves MThe Glamourai, and Chiara of The Blonde Salad. But one of my newest, favoritest (yes, I made that up) blogs is Cotton & Curls.

First of all, let me just say that I'm a lover of all things vintage and that includes fashion. Not only do I love the character of old, classic pieces, but I also think that it's a great way to be green (ie - environmentally friendly). So when I found Cotton & Curls and saw how amazing this chic is at taking old, too big or otherwise unwearable clothes and "re-fashioning" them into totally cute, totally wearable and totally chic pieces, I became a huge fan. She is such a creative inspiration that I finally decided to try my hand at some refashions of my own. :)

Holly & Dan | scottsdale engagement photographer

So excited to share these images of one of the sweetest, funnest, most adorable couples I know! Dan is quiet and witty, while Holly is an outgoing ball of energy, who can tell a story like nobody else. They compliment each other perfectly!

These little lovebirds will be tying the knot this weekend in downtown Phoenix, and I am so thrilled to be a part of their big day. Let's all send them some good, positive vibes as they embark on this beautiful journey together.

On the mend

Dearest Blog and JHP fans,

My apologies for being M.I.A. the past few months. I sorta kinda had a little accident...
Nice boot, eh? It's all the rage in the fashion world.
