Gilbert, Arizona Family Photo Session {The Ayala Family}

There is seriously NOTHING more beautiful
then the desert in the fall.
Maybe that's why I spend most of my time
in October and November
in Scottsdale, Arizona
Photographing families there and 
basking in the warm sun.
Happy Thanksgiving!!

Scottsdale Maternity Session { Shelby}

Hey guys!!!
Wow! It's been a while!
I took a break from social media/blogging
but I'm back!!!
I have SO many sessions to share
from the last year. 

Last December I went to Scottsdale, Arizona to shoot
a maternity session
for one of my best friends from high school.

It really isn't fair that she looks so
while pregnant
but to tell you the truth, 
she has always looked amazing.

Dear Babies, I too have a dream....

A few days ago, we celebrated Martin Luther King Jr day. Everyone came together to honor a man who spoke of peace and light.  Social media posts were filled with love and admiration for an American leader who had a dream. Just days later, we are millions of miles from that place of peace and love.

Today, feelings of hate, anger and fear are everywhere. My social media feeds are literally making me sick to my stomach as I watch friends and family becoming entangled in word wars with each other.  The news is filled with stories of violence and hate.   Today is the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump. It is a day that will no doubt go down in history. It is a day the United States became a nation divided. I'm heartsick by what I see happening in the world. Today, I sat down and wrote a letter to my beautiful little humans, because writing is what I do, amidst the chaos, to quiet the noise.

Dear Babies,
I too have a dream. I have millions of them. Most of them have to do with your future and your happiness. My dream today is right along those lines.
Today I dream that American can come together and peacefully welcome our new leader. I dream that we can stop blaming and fighting with each other.  Whether we love Donald Trump, dislike him, or are somewhere in the middle, I hope we remember how lucky we are to live in America. We are Americans. We are free. We don't have to like the person elected to be the President, but we to need to remember  that he is OUR President, and that position deserves our respect.
I believe in America. I love America. Now, lets put smiles on our faces and pray for our new President. I hope he does amazing things over the next four years.
Happy Inauguration Day Babies.
xoxo- mommy
