I always have more to say, here’s as much as Scottie let me put on our blog!

Senior session with Lindsey

We met up with Lindsey and a couple of her family members at the Tempe Beach Park.  Lindsey had seen some other sessions we’d done there and she fell in love with that location!  We started out at the park to get some of the shots she knew she wanted and moved up to the place she was most excited about… the railroad tracks.  Lucky for her, at this point we were still doing sessions on the railroad tracks.  We have since found out that it’s illegal and photographers are starting to get fined for it!  A bunch of distracted people hanging out on active tracks with killer trains speeding towards them is illegal?!  Go figure!;-)For all of you who are so disappointed to hear this news… don’t worry, we’re in search of some INACTIVE tracks near our usual locations so that we can still get that look for you!

So after the life-threatening railroad stunt, we decided to take them on a hike.  A pretty LONG hike!  Scottie was totally excited to get them down to Mill Ave. and we underestimated the distance between the park and the back alleyways he had in mind.  So hats off to our good sports who trusted us enough to make the trek over there!  I think they were happy they did when they saw some of the street shots he got with Lindsey on the corner of 5th and Mill with cars whizzing behind her.  I think I can say they were pretty impressive without being arrogant… after all, I was just a human light stand for those pictures!

Thanks again to Lindsey and family for working well with us and for making our photo session a fun time for all!






Our friends, Kari & Collin.

Work doesn’t get much better than when it gives you an excuse to hang out with old friends!  Scottie and I have both known Kari & Collin since before we even knew each other!  We had a blast and we were laughing… mmm pretty much non-stop!

They were super easy to shoot not only because they were comfortable with us, but also because they were super comfortable with each other!  We didn’t have to give them any posing directions because they cuddled up and got all lovey with each other all on their own.  All the shots that look really natural, truly are!

Ryan & Becca + The Tempe Arts Center

We’ve had this random phenomenon happen in our lives, where everyone that Scottie was friends with in New Mexico, moves to Arizona!  We seriously have around 20 friends that he knew in college who now live here!  So weird.  And Ryan is another one of those old school NM people!

I myself had never met either Ryan or Becca before the engagement session, but they were so easy to get along with, I felt like I had!  We met up with them at Rula Bula (an awesome little place in Tempe, Arizona) before their photo shoot, so I got to get to know them a little bit before hand which was nice.

We went down to the new Tempe Arts Center, which is quickly becoming my favorite place to shoot at.  The architecture on the building itself is incredible, then you add in the edgeless pool running into the lake and the amazing details all around the place… and you have perfection!  Another really fun session, thanks to Ryan and Becca!

Scottie + Breanna= Love forever

We had the best Valentine’s Day this year (I vote it should officially be changed so that it’s always on a Saturday every year)!  We’ve been so busy with Radiant lately that we’ve kind of let holidays just slide by.  We’re wanting to fix that soon but we still weren’t ready to stress and plan a huge V-day.  So it wasn’t that we did anything super spectacular.  It was just that we had a great time hanging out together and relaxing.

We decided to start the day by making a fancy breakfast (which we never do because we both have strange cooking complexes and usually eat like college students).  So we made delish lemon-blueberry scones with some avacado/bacon scrambled eggs and some fruit/honey/granola concotion.  We just listened to records and enjoyed our beautiful meal with a few hot pink candles lit on our table. Oh yeah and my cousin surprised us with some Kona coffee when he came back from Hawaii so instead of buying individual Valentine’s Day gifts, we decided to just get ourselves a nice coffee maker so we could really savor the Kona (the one we registered for when we got married doesn’t even pour let alone make good coffee).  So our coffee extraordinare was the perfect finishing touch… especially since I my favorite mug is a Valentine’s Day one.  I was happy.

After that we handed out Valentine’s Day Candy Grams to people who sent them to their family and neighbors in the complex.  If you’re confused about why we did this…. we work for an organization that allows us to plan community activities in our apartment complex in exchange for free rent!  So we put cute little cards in the front office for people to personalize and then we attached bags of candy and hand-delivered them around to everyone.  My favorite was one sent from one tiny child to another that said (written by mom) “I haven’t seen you at the park lately, happy Valentine’s Day!” complete with a picture of who knows what on the back.  It was so cute.  The ones from parents to child were really sweet too.  It was really nice to see people caring about one another and planning a special surprise for their loved ones.  It made for a really nice touch for our Valentine’s Day.

Those were the highlights for us, we also split up for awhile to buy each other cheesy Valentine’s memorobilia (so lame that we were too busy to buy each other presents!!) and went to see a flick.  So it wasn’t a  good day because of what we did necessarily, but it was just such a fun, chill day.  It gets so easy for us to begin to treat each other as roomates or business partners, this day kind of reminded us that we are best friends and that we really like hanging out together!
