Austin Porter is a senior at Red Mountain High School here in Mesa, Arizona. He has been an important part of both the football and lacrosse teams and he excels academically. For his senior portraits we decided to head out to granite Reef because what better back ground is there for a Senior at Red Mountain High School then Red Mountain! Congratulations on your upcoming graduation Austin!

I have known the Shill family since Mountain View senior, Luke, was in kindergarten. A couple of years ago I had the opportunity to work with Luke’s big brother, Rock Shill (you can see his senior portraits here.) and now it is Luke’s turn. Luke is quite a talented kiddo. He was a big part of both the volleyball and basketball teams at Mountain View. He has been playing the ukulele for years and has also recently picked up the acoustic guitar. After graduation he plans on heading out on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and then off to college. Congratulations Luke!

I just posted Andrea and Jared beautiful engagement session at the Desert Botanical Gardens HERE. Now it is time to show off their gorgeous wedding! These two have been together for seven years and are so in love. It was so much fun working with them. They were married in the Mesa, Arizona LDS temple on Saturday, January 10, 2015. Congratulations you two!
I usually do not blog engagement sessions until the couple sends out their announcements. But Jared and Andrea sent theirs out over the holidays and I was swamped and forgot. So here is the beautiful engagement session of Jared Hollingshead and Andrea Bond. They wanted to include desert succulents in their wedding so what better place for an engagement session that the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix.

I had the pleasure of first working with the Gunderson family a couple of years ago when I photographed them for some promotional posters for their business, Heavenly Harp. Then last spring they asked me to photograph them again for some up coming events, and this time daughter Joy’s boyfriend, Christian Villa, was there. They were such a cute couple so I was thrilled when Christian called me to photograph his surprise proposal to Joy on June 4th, 2014. Their beautiful wedding was on Sunday, December 28, 2014. These two are so completely in love. It was such an honor to be a part of their special day.

I have known Amy Karbula for many years. Long ago she was the librarian at Highland Elementary school when my three oldest children went there. (She is still there, but my kids are long graduated). She is a great woman and to know her is to love her! Each year I donate a family sitting to the silent auction at Highland elementary and this year Amy won the session. We got together in December, the day after Christmas, when all the kids were in town for the holidays. Take a peek at their cuteness!
This was my first time working with this fun family. They are full of personality and we had a great time on our shoot. It was a dreary, very gray day, but the rain stayed away until our drive home and we got some great images!
Every year I donate a photo shoot to a few of the elementary schools in the area. This year the Roggeman’s won my auctioned shoot at Highland Elementary. We had so much fun on this shoot. The Roggeman’s were up for anything. Including jumping at sunset, despite mom’s broken foot! I have known mom, Julie, for years. And anyone who knows her will tell you: To know her is to love her! She is the kindest, most caring woman and I just love her. She is surrounded by boys, but was recently joined by new daughter-in-law, Celeste. Check out this great family.
