Kharissa | 2018 Senior | Woodstock Senior Photography

How is it already May, and half way through May at that!? We celebrated my son finishing his first year of pre-school this week! I don't even want to think about the fact that someday I will have to celebrate him finishing high school one day! We've got a long way to go before then though, so I'll just be over here soaking it all in, and doing everything I can to keep him little.

Earlier this year I headed out to visit some family in Arizona, and also to capture this beauty's senior pictures! I was so excited to get out and shoot in the desert. I grew up in the desert, and there is just nothing quite as beautiful to me. 

We had a fun evening exploring downtown Phoenix and all the beautiful murals to choose from for some interesting backdrops. Then we headed way out to the mountains and desert for golden hour, and a sunset straight out of a painting!

This One Goes Out to the Mama's

One of the best parts of my job is getting to capture motherhood!! From the first hours in the hospital, to watching them prepare for a new stage in life after high school, I love being a part of capturing it.

At each session I always grab a few shots of just mom and her babies. I always hope that these are pictures that will be passed down for many generations, and that you and your children look back at them and smile at all the happy memories you made. 

To all the mom's out there, thank you for letting me be a part of your special moments, and allowing me to create something beautiful for you and your children to hold on to. Hope you have a very happy Mother's Day filled with love, and maybe some peace and quiet ;)
