Looking back, I haven’t been the best at posting personal things on the blog. So I thought would go ahead and share a little of what we’ve been up to this summer. Lately, we have been active with photo shoots, capturing parties and lots of wedding bookings. But with my oldest son Nathan being out of school for the summer, it was a great chance to get out of town and escape the scorching heat. We have lots of trips planned over the next few weeks in Northern Arizona and recently spent our first vacation in Oak Creek and Flagstaff. For the few days we were there, it was cool, cloudy and rainy – a drastic change from Phoenix. It was wonderful getting to spend time outside and not having to lather the kiddos in sunscreen!
The kids loved trying to catch anything that swam in the creek or flew around them. Nathan even managed to catch several dragon flies but the only thing Nolan caught were orange rocks!
I recently had the chance to capture Mason’s first birthday party. This family is extra special to me because in 2010, Tammy & Jason hired Mike & I to photograph and film their wedding. Ever since then, they have hired me several times to document little Mason’s maternity shoot, newborn photos and Christmas photos. You name it, we’ve done it. Mason just celebrated his first birthday with a pool party at home with a host of friends and family. I love the theme and colors from the party. They were perfect for summer!
