{Las Vegas Child Photographer | Kingman AZ Photographer} Missing Montana

We recently took a family trip to Montana, and it was love at first sight.  The mountains, the valleys, the rivers, lakes, streams, the trees, the green, the stars at night – I could go on and on.  To make a long story short, we hope to relocate to Montana sometime in the next 1 to 2 years.  We are heading back for another visit next week and it cannot get here soon enough.  What a beautiful area!  I, of course, have TONS of cell phone snap shots of our trip (which in reality, are my favorites), but I thought I would share a few of my favorite portraits that I took on our trip here on my blog.  There will be more to come from our next visit, so please stay tuned. :)

{Las Vegas Child Photographer | Kingman AZ Photographer} Springtime Beauty

Two of my very favorite things to photograph are my own sweet children, and the beautiful colors and textures provided by mother nature.  This year’s spring has been absolutely extraordinary!  Thanks to an unusually wet winter, we have had a bounty of flowers in every color imaginable coming up all over the desert.  I haven’t seen the poppies bloom in 7 years, but they were here in abundance this spring.  I also was lucky enough to stumble upon a MASSIVE field of my favorite orange globe mallows.  As if that weren’t enough, there are yellow flowers galore (everywhere you look), and I even found a field of gorgeous magenta flowers that I have never before seen in this area.  To say I’ve been spoiled is to put it mildly!

I wanted to share with you some random images I’ve taken of my children this spring so far.  Check back again as I may add more (I have a ton still to edit and have been hopping around working on them as I get extra time).  Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog!  I hope that these images brighten your day. :)

{Las Vegas Child Photographer | Las Vegas Senior Photographer} Mine

Wow, am I ever behind on blogging!  I am usually pretty good about keeping my blog active and updated, but I have been slacking badly this year.  It’s my goal over the next few days to get caught up.  I wanted to share a few studio images I did of some of my own children over the winter.  I love working with natural light, so as with the vast majority of my body of work, these studio shots were taken using natural light as well.  When it is cold outside and the trees are barren and brown, sometimes moving to a studio setting can spark your inspiration again. :)  These images are (in order) of my 16 year old daughter, Calista, my 17 year old son, Clint (who happens to be graduating in a few weeks – YES, I will be doing senior pictures!), and my 22 month old son, Gabriel.  There’s not much to say here so I’ll let the photos do the talking.  Thanks for taking a peek! <3

These images aren’t technically studio shots, but I wanted to include them here as well for the sake of getting caught up, and really wanting to share these (because I love them).
