Jacob's 1 |Scottsdale Family Photographer

Wednesday, July 6, 2011

Family sessions in the Arizona summer are really really hot! This summer I'm not scheduling any sessions but with repeat clients to allow for me to have more time with my kids without work always lingering in the back of my mind.

When sweet Jacob's mom and I were coordinating for his birthday session, I was beyond happy to see this sweet family again. As the session date came close, I watched the temperatures rising and I had a pit in my stomach when thinking of flushed cheeks and plain misery in the muggy heat.

Just days before the session, I spoke to Jacob's mom and suggested moving the session to a morning time because of the heat. Morning sessions in the spring and summer aren't always the most popular because they start super early for the best light. And, anyone that knows me knows I'm so not a morning person but it was definitely worth it to beat the heat.

This sweet family traveled from north Scottsdale and me from the southeast valley, we met in the middle and I loved it. Even if they may have arrived and thought....wow, that is one tired looking photographer! {giggle}

Here is a glimpse from a sweet 1st birthday session! Which are always an adventure when the baby is a pro at walking!

Enjoy and yes, this family is just as sweet as they are beautiful!

Pictures of moms and their babies are always a huge favorite of mine! The picture below tops my favorite list...I just love the connection!

1 year old sessions always have outtakes that make me laugh! This one was a favorite!
You also might recognize this family from a newborn session last year! The pictures from that session were a favorite of mine. This family is very sweet and I love the love between them all!
