  • Love Letters"ABSOLUTELY loved Working with Selena for my wedding. I'm very picky about photography and she made my dreams come true. She really brought out our personalities in the photos. She's did an amazing job."

Once upon a time…

I met the beautiful and majestic Chelsea. This is where our story began.

Chelsea added me on Facebook. I briefly stalked her and didn’t see any red flags. I didn’t know her at all, but she was a normal looking girl—no signs of creepiness. And we have several mutual friends, so I accepted her. She seemed to like photography and started following my business. I also knew her husband TJ from way back in the day; we were acquaintances.

One day Chelsea sent me a message. It was February 26th, 2012—I remember the day well. She said, “I just thought I would say hi, I don’t want to be some creep you are friends with haha! You have a super cute baby child, and I may or may not be able to restrain myself from commenting on that. aaaaand, I really really love your work, so go you! You are awesome! That is all, have a great night!”

“Who is this girl?  Random but nice.” I thought to myself.

Flattered by her compliments, I responded, “Well hello to you! Sooooo not creepy. I am kind of a Facebook stalker myself. haha. How are you? Thanks you so much for you compliment. Do you do photography? (and yes, I do think my baby is the cutest.)”

We messaged back and forth a few times. Then somehow in our conversation, one of us threw in a “we should hang out sometime.” It was a casual invitation, out of politeness. I mean, I did just spend the last several minutes talking with this lady. Little did I know that this invitation would actually turn into reality.

The next thing I knew, I was making dinner plans with a complete stranger! Russ thought I was crazy to invite a couple over to our home I basically met on the internet (could be murderers right? haha). He was a bit vexed with me so we made a compromise. I had to invite at least one couple we were friends with over the same night as to distract from any awkwardness that I might have signed us up for.

Did I just plan a suuuppperr awkward night with strangers?  Would we like them? Would we connect with them? Did we have anything in common? Ah crap.

The evening came. Chelsea and TJ came over along with a few other friends of ours for a game night. And the night went amazingly well. We connected SO well with them. I didn’t even see it coming, but we just made new friends and we love them.  Our internet dating had blossomed into a real life relationship!  Who would have thought.  (I’m not saying the next time any random person messages you on Facebook you should plan a dinner party with them, but I am so glad I did!)

Chelsea and I are really good friends now! We play a lot of games and we are foodies together! We share the same passion for photography. She has even been my second shooter before. She teaches me how to be cool still and I ask her advice from outfits to makeup to recipes (and everything in between).  And we send a lot of gifs, snapchats, and silly text messages, which is why I am SO happy she decided to move back to Arizona to be with me. I’m sure that is the only reason she moved (right Chelsea?). Actually, Chelsea and TJ are having a BABY! I am just going to shout that one more time. THEY ARE HAVING A BABY! I am SO completely excited for them. They knew us every since we had our first baby and now we can see them transition into parents and I CAN’T WAIT.

I obviously had to shoot her gender reveal and low and behold….THEY ARE HAVING A BABY BOY! EEK! This is the greatest news because my baby Jade (10 months) and him can be boyfriend and girlfriend. (I am trying to predict the future.) And get married! (Arranged marriage?)

Anyways, enough of my rambling about my love for Chelsea! Check out their gender reveal below! It’s the best!

Happy Monday!

Ready for another location I LOVE?! Introducing DC Ranch. This beautiful location is one of my go-to places for mini sessions. This place has got it all. I’m being serious. DC Ranch has such a variety in looks. From the barn door rustic style to a more Tuscany feel—it really can capture so many vibes. It even has an urban feel or a more desert look. You can’t really go wrong here, which is why I like to shoot here. I can capture a lot of different styles for different families. This location also has some GREAT lighting for a long period of time which makes it ideal for mini sessions. There is shade and buildings that can help me out when the harsh sun is out earlier in the day. Also, this location is perfect for medium size families and doesn’t require any props. There are tons of things to work with here.

If you book a mini session here, be prepared to walk around a bit. I like to explore the diverse grounds, which requires some meandering. But it’s worth every step. Trust me.


Check out my latest minis at DC Ranch below! I kinda dig them. I hope you do too.

Think for a moment.

Do you need to revamp your professional image? Is your LinkedIn photo a cropped image of you and your family or worse an attempt at a “professional” photo on your Iphone? Maybe it is time you consider getting professional headshots. We all have ran into those super pixelated, cropped, or iPhone photos people use on their professional websites or social media accounts. Those images are FARRRRR from screaming “I’m a working professional.”

It is time to get serious about your image. And here is why.

First impressions are KEY to success. Clients, employers, and other professionals make their first judgement on you within the first few seconds of meeting or seeing you. This can be VITAL if you want to get that job, or gain more customers. You want your professional image to work in your favor and something as simple as a headshot can be a GAME CHANGER. I am serious. Say goodbye to those subpar photos and get images that showcase you as your best self. Not only will it identify you as a professional, but it will help shape the way your future clients or employers view you. A positive first impression can take you and your career far. Just like branding is important to any company, so is your self-branding. You want to ensure that you appear to be the best candidate for your field of expertise. YOU want to be noticed for your achievements. So, brush up your personal brand and book your professional head shots with me.

Recommendations:

For headshot clients, I recommend that you bring outfits that you would be seen wearing in your professional field (and I usually recommend a long sleeve if appropriate). If you are a businessman or woman, you would wear business formal. However if you are in the healthcare field, you may be want to wear your lab coat or scrubs. Or perhaps you are a writer or blogger would be seen in less dressy and more casual wear. Whatever you wear make sure it fits your profession.

Pricing:

Headshot pricing varies depending on my clients individual needs.  I quote each session separately. If you simply want a new professional headshot for LinkedIn for example, this would be a 15 minutes session with 1 or 2 images and this particular session is very affordable. If you want to completely rebrand yourself or your company with multiple outfits, and locations with lots of images, the session is going to be a bit more. Headshots are really personalized to your needs. Included in the package are full resolution digitals and rights for printing and resized images for the web.

Two words: Cotton Fields.

This WOW location is one of the most popular places. Every just LOVES IT. Little kids love roaming around in it. Adults love the dreamy and whimsical look; it’s simply stunning. Unfortunately, it is a difficult location to time out because cotton is seasonal. In fact, the window is so short I cannot fit in everyone who wants their shoot their. The cotton fields blossom at the end of October and only last till mid November. I only have a few weeks to shoot while they are in full bloom.


 

Tips for booking the Cotton Fields.

I am going to give you a little insight on how to book the cotton fields. You need to book 2 months in advance to get this dreamy location. People usually start to book in September. Those of you who are ambitious can book in August as well. The reason for booking so soon is they are a POPULAR location with very LIMITED time to shoot there while the cotton is in full bloom. Also, October and November are my BUSIEST months of the entire year! Go figure right? I have various families, wedding, and Christmas card photos to shoot. It’s sometimes of a chaotic mess.

That should give you plenty of good reasons to PLAN ahead and BOOK EARLY.

Now I hope you get mesmerized by these dreamy Cotton Field photos below like I do.

Meet Tali and Tyler.

This cute couple lives in the Pacific Northwest and came all the way back to Arizona (Tali’s childhood roots) to get married to her sweetheart at her family’s former residence. I was absolutely thrilled to be apart of their big day!

This detail-oriented bride took her time in planning each and every thing. From her many bridesmaid’s dresses to the stunning architectural cake (only meant for decoration), this bride planned it all. Every subtle detail at her wedding turned out absolutely perfect! (Even the food. I’m pretty sure that was the best Mexican food I’ve ever eaten.) It was a dream come true. I was also impressed with how gracious of a host Tali was. She showered every guest with her love and attention, giving them that special one-on-one time with the happy bride.

The highlight for me at Tali and Tyler’s wedding was their ceremony. Her sweet grandfather married them. And it was so evident that this couple had immense love of one another. There were so many sweet tears shed from them and their supportive family and friends; the happiness and joy was just all consuming. The best part was when they brought Tyler’s sweet son up to participate. Their newly formed family was radiating happiness together. And it couldn’t have made the moment any better.


 

Now check out this couple’s beautiful wedding below. Don’t get too choked up when you see all the love Tali and Tyler have for each other because it’s simply precious.
