Fire Fighter and Son.

In my Arms, I hold my Passion, my Heart, my Life.

In honor of this wonderful fire fighter Julian Perez and his newborn son Dempsey and to all the fire fighters that were killed in Arizona this past week. We thank you for always putting your lives before us.  We are forever grateful.  A sneak peak from this week’s newborn session. Baby Dempsey is just 8 days old and I love how it appears as if he is looking up at his daddy.

Newborn Baby Aria

Little Miss Aria was such a delight to photograph. Even though she was only 8 days old she kept giving us the cutest little smiles and smirks throughout her session.  She loved the beanbag and must  have wondered into a beautiful dream land letting us pose her in cute little poses. She was even wide awake for some of her portraits staring up at mom as she looked down on her.  She was so good as we moved her from one prop to another…we settled her in and asleep she went.  So precious…so cute.  I love my job!
