Before and After

 This beautiful couple Michael and Natalie already had their baby a couple weeks ago.  When I took their maternity pictures it was during my really busy time so I didn't have a chance to blog them.  They are some of my favorite maternity pictures so I thought I would share them now along with the newborn pictures of baby Wyatt!!

 Natalie is such a beautiful mommy to be, wouldn't you agree!

 Michael has some fantastic ink art that just had to be used in a picture.  Just wait til you see him with baby Wyatt.

 Now the pictures of Michael and Natalie's newest love baby Wyatt.  He was not in the best of moods on the day that I went to take his pictures.  Here he is just 5 days old.  We decided I should come back on another day, when Wyatt was a little happier.

 Second attempt of taking newborn pictures of baby Wyatt, he was a little angel.  Yay... We captured some great pictures of Wyatt for Michael and Natalie.

 This next picture of Wyatt is one of my favorites.  He is a little bit of a dramatic sleeper.

 Remember Michael's beautiful ink art.  Once again, asking him to take his shirt off to pose, this time with baby Wyatt.  Some of my all time favorite baby pictures.  Thanks Michael for being such a trooper!!

Michael and Natalie are so sweet and I know they are going to make wonderful parents to Wyatt.

It's the Little Things

 It is the little things that make us smile and warm are hearts such as this little baby girl Scarlett.  I had just done maternity pictures of Scarlett's mommy the first weekend of December.  Scarlett decided to come early!!  When I showed up to take her new born pictures Jessica (Scarlett's mommy) had all sorts of ideas for me.  Jessica had knitted a pink baby hat for Scarlett, I put my order in..

Thank you Jessica and Jeremy for allowing me to photograph your sweet new baby girl.  Taking pictures of new born's is always a favorite for me!

~New Year's Eve Love With Dan and Trisha~

 Meet Dan and Trisha my New Year's Eve couple. Yes, they were married on December 31, 2011.  When I met with Dan and Trisha I sensed that this would be a fun wedding, was it ever!!  You see this couple is so full of love and life, a great combination.  Dan enters a room with confidence and charisma.  Trisha enters the room with confidence's and beauty, together they are dangerous (in a good way).  Ancala Country club is where this little wedding of 200 guest took place.  Yes, they did party til midnight and some.  It was truly one of the best New Year's Eve wedding's ever!!  This first series of pictures is the first look.  Dan and Trisha did a lot of their pictures before the wedding since the ceremony was scheduled for sunset.

 Now look at all these beautiful women!!  I usually do not post a lot of bridal party pictures, but with this fun group I had to share.  I need to mention how beautiful the weather was on this day.  I would say about 77 degrees, big difference from last year at this time.  I shot a wedding on Jan 1 2010 and it was about 37 degrees out.

 Dan and Trisha are all about having a good time and enjoying life.  See them just break out into dance!!  Why not.

 Wow, look at the sunset colors.  I could not have painted it better myself.  Love Arizona!
 Dan singing a song to his lovely bride!  Yes, he sings too!

 A couple that Tebow's together stays together.
 Yes, that is Batman and Robin.  Seriuosly this wedding just keeps getting better and better.

 Again I do not post a lot of reception pictures, but look at this crowd.  They danced like this all night, non-stop.

 Happy New Year!! What a way to end 2011.  One of my busiest years so far, out with a great couple along with their friends and family.

On a bit of a serious note, Dan and Trisha are incredible.  Their presence is big and positive.  While photographing the ceremony, seeing the smiles, tears, beautiful colors in the sky, sounds I was reminded of just how privileged I am to be a wedding photographer!  Yes, I know I get paid, but the moments I witness, that I was allowed to be there.  Amazing.  This couple is amazing.  I feel that God speaks to us through others.  Dan and Trisha would be others.  Thank you for allowing me to photograph your wedding.  I was honored!
